In my jar: Quinoa salad

Food, Lunch, Salads

Finally some good camera lighting. Winter can be so depressingly dark in Norway. Anyway, cold weather is a good excuse to make nice food. So, good morning from my salad in a jar! Glass jars makes lunch so much cooler. Fill them up with salads, cut veggies or smoothies.

IMG_6344Here I simply used quinoa, lettuce, tomatoes, sprouts, kale, avocado and onion. Easy, quick but so tasty and nice looking
I created a new tag, “in my jar”, which I’ll tag all my jar recipes with so you easily can find them in one place from now on.

Have a great day!

Add some crunch

Hahaha, laughing at this lame post title. My humor might be a bit affected by the happy rush I’m experiencing at the moment. I just made the best chocolate smoothie ever! I’m in love. I guess It’s kind of terrible of me to share that now, heh.. Enough chocolate talk. I’ll be posting the recipe tomorrow!

I’m actually writing to share a tiny tip. Most americans are super used to this little wonder fruit, but I feel like a lot of Norwegians aren’t. Pomegranate! Not only does it make any meal a lot better looking, it adds crunch and tastes amazing. I am always looking for ways to add some crunchiness and punch to my my smoothies, fruit bowls or porridges. This is an all-time favorite.

TIP: Oh! You might be wondering why I have my pomegranate in a bowl of water? I do this to feel it the best way possible. Cut the fruit in half or quarters, lower them into the water and turn it inside out, until all the seeds are detached. The white “skin” will float to the surface, and the seeds will sink. Now, simply fish out the white bits, pour off the water and collect your seeds! Pomegranate wasn’t named randomly. If you try getting the seeds out without lowering it in water, the juice tends to splash everywhere. Soo, until you’ve gotten used to this drill, I recommend the water trick.IMG_5848

Add pomegranate to your cure soggy, boring oat meal

Or add it to smoothies to add some texture!

The recipe for this delicious green breakfast is coming soon! My post about exciting oatmeal you’ll find here.
