Freekeh Salad With Peanut Ginger Dressing

where can i buy doxycycline for acne 22 Apr

go to site Never heard of freekeh? You’re not alone. I only recently discovered this super grain, and I’m a fan. Basically, it’s wheat that’s harvested young, and it’s low in fat and high in protein and fiber. It can be used in recipes that call for quinoa, bulgar, brown rice, etcetera. It’s delicious in this salad, which I like to make at the beginning of the week because it holds up well in the refrigerator for easy lunches all week long. Not only is it loaded with healthy vegetables, but it’s super colorful, which always makes me feel good to eat.

Freezer Meals

http://wanderingcircles.com/?p=1108 13 Apr

With my first baby on the way, I spent a few weekends over the past month making a ton of food to stock up my freezer with easy meals for the first few weeks after the baby is born.

where to buy hoodia gordonii in singapore I also stocked my freezer with bread, rolls, wraps, pita bread, and bags of frozen veggies and fruits and my pantry with essentials like whole-wheat pasta, quinoa, brown rice, tuna, beans, canned tomatoes, and non-refrigerated almond milk so I can keep grocery store trips to a minimum.

Tip: Before you get started, make sure to have lots of resealable bags (gallon and quart), wax paper, and foil baking dishes on hand, and label everything, including with the instructions for cooking for heating.

Here a look at some of the items I made:

 

Citrus-Marinated Pork Tenderloin

2 Apr

This pork tenderloin turns out perfect every single time I make it. The citrus marinade makes the meat so tender, moist, and flavorful. But the other key to success is searing the meat before you transfer it to the oven. It locks in all the juices, so you don’t end up with dry, tough meat. I know it’s tempting, but do not skip that step! This marinade works well on pork chops, too!
