What is cooking in my kitchen

Updated on August 16, 2010

A Nice Healthy Meal

I especially enjoy eating meals that include grains, fresh leafy vegetables, and legumes all in one. For example, tacos that have pinto beans or kidney beans, iceburg lettuce, onions, and tomatoes. It is a meal that completes the major food groups and is quite filling ,as well. Another healthy meal that I really had the pleasure of creating with all of the ingredients above, is what I like to call a garbanzo rice salad. Before, I continue with the formation of this dish, I want to say that I designed it with the idea of a low fat, high fiber theory in mind. I must admire the preparation of my meal with its many bright colors, the taste, and its nutritional value. If I do enjoy the meal I will not benefit from the nutritional value of my food. The meal should promote satisfaction, good nutrition and regularity. In other words, make sure that what you choose to eat feeds the cells, builds the tissues and supports every major organ in your body. Water is the beverage that I like to drink after most of my my meals to help carry the nutrients to my cells, tissues, and organs because it is a liquid that no living creature can survive without!

Now, here is the recipe: You need 1/3 teaspoon of cayenne pepper, 5 tablespoons of chopped onions (dried), 5 tablespoons of garlic powder, 5 tablespoons of basil leaves, 1 tablespoon of sage, one cup of thoroughly cooked brown rice, 1 bag of garbonza beans/chickpeas thoroughly cooked, three cap fulls of olive oil, 1 diced half or whole yellow bell pepper, 1 diced half or whole red bell pepper, and 3 diced stalks of celery. Thoroughly mix all of the ingredients after straining the rice and the garbonza beans and serve or refrigerate until chilled. Keep the leftovers refrigerated.

One of my favorite desserts is tofu graham cracker pie. You will need these items to prepare your treat. 1 pack of tofu, 1 cap full of lemon juice, 1/2 cup of silk milk, 1 can of pineapple, and 2 graham cracker pie crust Shells. Blend all of the ingredients together above and pour into the 2 graham cracker pie crust shells. Bake in the oven at 350 degrees for 45 minutes. Take out of oven let it sit on a pie rack with a 2 pieces of paper towels on each pie. It should sit for at least 15 minutes and dig in. It can be served hot or cold with whip cream on top or not!
