She is a new blogging friend of mine and shares a very similar outlook on food. We both love cooking and cooking from scratch has kept us healthy, despite some health issues we have both faced.
Her passion for enjoying every morsel of food she puts in her mouth while keeping herself healthy, has led her to create amazing recipes that will transport your taste buds to a new level of ecstasy.
Unlike myself, she is a master photographer. I think I have spent literally hours on her site drooling. Everything she looks sounds amazing and she captures it just perfectly. Maybe one day, I will be fortunate to learn from her!
First up is Michelle’s Superfood Quinoa Salad with Lemon Vinaigrette.
You know my love of quinoa. And I absolutely adore Mexican Cuisine. When you combine the two with a homemade lemon vinagrette–that is going to be GOOD! Plus, with the superfoods featured in this dish, I can feel great about satisfying my Mexican craving while nourishing my body!
Take a look at this Creamy Broccoli Soup:
My hubbie has a favorite soup. It is a cheesy, processed Broccoli Soup from a restaurant his parents used to take him to as a child. I can not wait to try out Michelle’s healthier version of a classic. I guarantee I will love it and believe that the creaminess from the beans, may fool my hubbie into thinking it is as good or better than his over processed childhood memory of Broccoli Soup.
Let me let you in on a little secret: I am not a fan of fish. Gasp!! I know, it is so good for you and I try, I really try.
However, at a restaurant tasting I was fortunate enough to be invited to, I tried seared tuna with avocado and a spicy mayo. And I LOVED it! Michelle’s Fish Tacos feature all those flavors. I am beyond tickled to try this recipe! I think it may help me to learn to not just endure fish, but LOVE fish.
Today I just shared with you a snippet of Michelle’s culinary creations. I encourage you to head to Healthy Recipe Ecstasy and take a peak into her “prescription for your kitchen” and jazz up your meal plan this week.
