1 large mango, cubed
1 avocado, diced
3/4 cup macadamia nuts, roasted/salted
5 cups fresh arugula
optional add-in’s: sweet onions, diced apple, diced pineapple … more
dressing (or use your own recipe):
1/4 cup lemon juice
2 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup olive oil
1 Tbsp Dijon mustard
1 tsp agave syrup
dash garlic powder
1. I made a quickie salad dressing out of a few of my favorite flavors. Whisked it together and tossed it with the salad ingredients - except the arugula!
2. I tossed the avocado, mango and nuts with the salad dressing - then poured it right over the greens. I didn’t toss the salad together until we were ready to serve the salad. Otherwise the arugula would get quite soggy.
3. Top with fresh black pepper! Serve!
- 1/2 sweet onion, chopped
- 2 slices bacon
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 6 brussels sprouts
In a skillet over medium heat, add the bacon and fry until browned. Remove to a paper towel to drain, and then add the onions and garlic to the pan and sauté until the onions are tender.
Quarter the brussels sprouts and add to the pan. Sauté until browned. Season with salt and pepper if desired.
Cook 2-3 more minutes and then transfer to a bowl to serve. Crumble the cooked bacon into pieces and sprinkle over the top. Serves 2 as a side.
1 Block Extra Firm Tofu, pressed, cut into small squares
1 tbs Canola or Peanut Oil
2 tsp Soy Sauce
2 tsp Mirin
1 Carrot, peeled and shredded
Peanuts, crushed (optional)
1 Cup Dry Brown Rice
1/4 Cup Peanut Butter
1/4 Cup Water (or coconut milk if you have it!)
1 Tbs Sugar
1 Tbs Soy Sauce
1 Tbs Seasoned Rice Vinegar
1 tsp Hot Chili Oil
1 Pinch Salt
Start cooking your rice. Mix sauce ingredients until smooth (be patient, it’ll look like hell at first) and set aside.
Pan fry tofu in the oil over high heat in a non-stick skillet until browned on both sides. Drain and return to hot pan (turn off the heat). Mix soy sauce and mirin together and pour over tofu, mixing well. It will bubble up and form a light glaze.
Plate rice, add broccoli, tofu, carrot, and crushed peanuts. Drizzle with sauce and serve.
