easy peasy healthy

When I studied nutrition I became very familiar with kale. It is one of the most nutritious leafy greens on the market and I love to incorporate this vegetable into all kinds of foods. I add it to my smoothies, salads, I make chips and love to use it as a side with fish or chicken.

Yesterday I made this warm salad for lunch. It is super easy, fast, tasty and healthy. Extremely simple, just how I like my cooking.

All you need is:

Oil

Kale

Pepper

Onion

Soy

Water

Salt & pepper

Feta cheese

Grilled Chicken

Chop the onion and pepper and stir in a pan with oil until a bit soft. Add chopped kale and just a  hint of water. Stir fry until the kale has softened a bit and wished consistent achieved. Add salt, pepper and soy sauce. Top with feta cheese and grilled chicken. Enjoy!

Craving this

I love salads and if it was only up to me I’d probably eat different kind of salads for lunch and dinner every day. It’s the perfect way to get your daily dose of greens in, and it also leaves more room for dessert (double yay)! I always eat my salads with toasted or freshly baked bread, and I usually skip dressings since I simply don’t like them. I also really like adding fruit or berries to my salads for added freshness.

I don’t really know why I decided to post just this particular salad made this weekend. It’s so simple and nothing special really, but sometimes simplicity is the key. I also know I’m not the only one suffering from anxiety about what to cook for dinner every day, so I thought maybe a quick and simple salad can save someones night ;).

All you need is different kinds of green lettuce (preferably dark green for added vitamins and health benefits), avocado and feta cheese crumbled and mixed in by hand to make it creamy, tomato, cucumber, green olives, strawberries and grilled halloumi cheese. And of course olive oil, pepper and some lemon can be added if you like your salad extra juicy :).

Hope you like it!
