I love rice…….

To make whiter rice, add a teaspoon of lemon juice to the water before you cook the rice. The grains won’t stick together either.

Today’s Menu: Baked Salmon Fillets w/ Multi-Grain Medley and Sliced Carrots

 

 

 

I had a Scrambled Egg and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast. I had to be at the Dentist at 8:45 yesterday morning. I dread going to a Dentist more than anything but I’ve got a bad tooth and later I need more work done. I also had to go back to the family Doctor the day before and he increased my Metformin from 1 to 2 pills daily. So much stress lately he wanted me to increase for 3 months. After that we’ll do the checks again. He thinks that it’s all the stress I’ve been having for my elevated blood work. Another wait and see. For Dinner tonight I prepared Baked Salmon Fillets w/ Multi-Grain Medley and Sliced Carrots.

 


I purchased a package of North Atlantic Salmon from Meijer and had it in the freezer. To make it I’ll need the Salmon, McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley, Dried Parsley, Dried Chive, and Extra Light Olive Oil.

 

 

 

 


To prepare it; I preheated the oven on 400 degrees. I then got a small baking pan and sprayed it with Pam Cooking Spray. I washed the Fillet off in cold water and patted dry with a paper towel. Next I put a light coat of the Extra Light Olive Oil on the Fillet and then seasoned. Lined the Fillet in the pan and baked. I baked it for 8 minutes, and done. Excellent Salmon!

 

 

 

I really enjoy the combo of Rice or Grain and Carrots with Salmon For one side to go with the Salmon I prepared a packet of the Minute Rice – Multi-Grain Medley.First time I’ve prepared this in a while. It has Brown Rice, Thai red Rice, Wild Rice, and Quinoa. Now that’s a good combo of Grains! The box contains 4 – 2 Serving Packets and easy to prepare. Combine water and the contents of one bag in medium saucepan and stir. Add oil if desired. Or, if desired, to add more flavor, substitute broth, fruit or vegetable juice for water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer 10 MINUTES or until water is absorbed. Remove from heat. Fluff with fork and serve! Easy to prepare and makes one excellent side dish.

 

 

 

I also heated up a can of Del Monte Sliced Carrots. Just empty the contents into a small sauce pan , bring it to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer until heated through. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

The Atlantic salmon is a species of ray-finned fish in the family Salmonidae. It is found in the northern Atlantic Ocean, in rivers that flow into the north Atlantic and, due to human introduction, in the north Pacific Ocean.

It’s Nuts I tell you………..ORGANIC QUINOA

August 2, 2018 at 5:02 AM | Posted in nuts | Leave a comment
Tags: , , , , , , , , ,

This week off the nuts.com website (https://nuts.com/) its ORGANIC QUINOA. Quinoa is a light and edible seed similar to grains and contains nearly twice as much dietary fiber as other grains. Quinoa is just one of the grains and organic items you can find at the Nuts site (https://nuts.com/) They have a great variety of items like; NUTS, DRIED FRUIT, CHOCOLATES and SWEETS, SNACKS, COFFEE and TEA, COOKING and BAKING, and GIFTS. Plus there’s FREE shipping on orders over $59, see for details. Now more on the ORGANIC QUINOA. So Enjoy and Eat Healthy in 2018! https://nuts.com/

 

 

ORGANIC QUINOA
Quinoa (pronounced keen-wah) is a light, fluffy, edible seed that feels and tastes more like a grain. Our organic quinoa is pre-rinsed so it is ready for cooking! Thanks to its mild, somewhat nutty and irresistible flavor, organic quinoa is an immensely popular food. But this “mother grain” is also valued for its tremendous nutritional content.

How to Cook Quinoa
To cook quinoa, just combine one part of our quinoa with two parts water or broth, bring the mixture to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer for 15 to 20 minutes. Fluff it with a fork, and it’s delicious and ready to serve as-is or with your choice of seasonings.

Quinoa Nutrition
This power-packed nutritional combo helped give quinoa the name “Gold of the Incas” when it was cultivated thousands of years ago in the Andes; Incan warriors highly valued the crop for the energy and stamina it gave them.

Among the wholesome attributes that make the organic quinoa grain special are:

1) Quinoa is considered a complete protein because it contains all 9 essential amino acids. A one-cup serving of cooked organic quinoa contains 12-18% Daily Value (DV) for protein, which is more than any grain. In particular, organic quinoa contains lysine, an amino acid that most grains lack. Lysine helps the body absorb calcium and reduces stress-induced anxiety.

2) According to the USDA, quinoa contains nearly twice as much dietary fiber as other grains. A serving of organic quinoa has about 20% DV for dietary fiber, which supports a healthy digestive system by speeding up the passage of food and waste. It also keeps you feeling full longer to prevent overeating and promote weight loss.

3) Organic quinoa is a good source of minerals like phosphorous, magnesium and iron. Phosphorous is important for bone formation, kidney health, and muscle strength. Magnesium controls blood glucose levels, aids the absorption of calcium, and regulates blood pressure. Iron helps deliver oxygen-rich blood cells throughout the body……….

Baked Salmon Fillets w/ Multi-Grain Medley and Sliced Carrots

Today’s Menu: Baked Salmon Fillets w/ Multi-Grain Medley and Sliced Carrots

 

 

For Breakfast I Scrambled a couple of Eggs, fried 2 Jennie – O Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links, toasted 2 slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread, and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Good way to start off a cold morning. How cold is it you ask, 18 degrees! Wasted no time going out to grab the morning papers! Partly cloudy and 33 degrees for a high. Cleaned the oven and did some cleaning and straightening up of all the shelves and drawers in the Kitchen. Wish I could afford new cabinets but it’s just not in the budget. For Dinner tonight I prepared Baked Salmon Fillets w/ Multi-Grain Medley and Sliced Carrots.

 

 

I purchased a package of North Atlantic Salmon, there was 2 small Fillets in the package. With the Fillets being small I prepared both of them for Dinner tonight. To make them I’ll need the Salmon, McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley, Dried Parsley, and Extra Light Olive Oil.

 

 

 

 

To prepare them; I preheated the oven on 400 degrees. I then got a small baking pan and sprayed it with Pam Cooking Spray. I washed the Fillets off in cold water and patted dry with a paper towel. Next I put a light coat of the Extra Light Olive Oil on them and then seasoned them. Lined the 2 Fillets in the pan and baked them. They were small Fillets so I only had to bake them for 8 minutes and they were done. They may be small but that was some excellent Salmon! Nicely Seasoned and flakey.

 

 

For one side to go with the Salmon I prepared a packet of the Minute Rice – Multi-Grain Medley.First time I’ve prepared this in a while. It has Brown Rice, Thai red Rice, Wild Rice, and Quinoa. Now that’s a good combo of Grains! The box contains 4 – 2 Serving Packets and easy to prepare. Combine water and the contents of one bag in medium saucepan and stir. Add oil if desired. Or, if desired, to add more flavor, substitute broth, fruit or vegetable juice for water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer 10 MINUTES or until water is absorbed. Remove from heat. Fluff with fork and serve! Easy to prepare and makes one excellent side dish.

 

I also heated up a can of Del Monte Sliced Carrots. Just empty the contents into a small sauce pan , bring it to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer until heated through. For Dessert later a Cookies and Cream Ice Cream Bar.
