Shrimp Kabocha Spring Rolls With Chili Lime Peanut Sauce

I have posted several spring roll recipes in the past, and this is just another twist on an old favorite! Pre-cooked shrimp make these pretty simple, but gives it some authenticity, while Kabocha squash just keeps being one of my all time favorite foods :).

These are just delicious, any way you roll me, and a great way to get some veggies into your diet šŸ™‚

Lemon Pepper Chicken Quinoa Salad

Super simple and delicious! A great way to use up some leftover cooked quinoa and chicken! Tastes fresh and light but is packed with protein and keeps you full. Makes an awesome lunch or light summer dinner!  Lemon and pepper and quinoa are just an awesome start, red onion, arugula, and shredded chicken are a great combo. Throw in some feta or cilantro for some added flavor, and any other veggies your heart desires.

You need:

1 Lemon, juiced

Black Pepper to taste

Quinoa, about 1 cup per person (pre-cooked)

1 clove minced garlic

About a tsp chopped fresh rosemary

Arugula to taste

Red onion, sliced thinly

About 3 oz cooked shredded chicken per person
This recipe mixes easily and the quantities are easily adjusted. Truly there is no exact science to this one, and I didn’t measure a single thing! Just mix these ingredients and taste as you go along! The pics will give you an idea of what the finished product looked like for me.  I added some avocado, but some other options would be red bell pepper, cilantro, feta cheese, a drizzle of olive oil. Go crazy, and enjoy the wholesome deliciousness šŸ˜€

Yellow and Green Goddess Salad

Simple, spicy, fresh, and satisfying! Doesn’t taste as light as it is! The jalapeƱos and avocado make it taste rich and filling, and the lime compliments the jalapeƱos so nicely. Perfect meal when you want something light but satisfying, and it has so much crispy crunchiness for the texture enthusiasts like me:)

2 zucchinis spiralized thin
handful spinach or mixed greens (I love Organic Girl super greens)
1/5 large jalapeƱo, diced
Juice of 2 limes, 1 lemon
1/2 yellow bell pepper chopped
1/4 avocado, sliced
optional crispy chick pea toppers
(Recipe here.)

Toss all ingredients and eat. That’s it!
