Ok enough exclamation points and here’s some delicious food pictures. I present my dinners from today and yesterday:
So what is so special about these two recipes? Well they are both gluten free, dairy free, healthy and delicious! I have plenty more recipes that also fit these descriptions, but for today these two get the spotlight. The point of this blog is just to show that healthy doesn’t have to be bland, or boring and no matter what restrictions you have, there is always a creative way around it.
Mexican Quinoa Casserole
Ok, so to be completely honest I took this picture last year when I first made this recipe. I have made it many times since. It passes both the test of my son and my father… which believe me is a great honor. I have played around with this recipe many times also. I’ve added chilies and zucchini, cilantro, avocado and many other variations, and you know what? I have not been able to ruin it. It’s always amazing and its one of those recipes that when you eat it at work you suddenly have a crowd around you to catch a peak at what smells so amazing. This recipe in particular is gluten free, vegan (dairy and meat free) and completely nutritious. Vegangela is a genius for creating this and I love her for it. http://vegangela.com/2013/02/18/oven-baked-mexican-quinoa-casserole/
Shephard’s Pie with Cauliflower
Now I’m actually feeling a little guilty because I haven’t added my favorite food blogger in this post. Something to look forward to? Oh yes, it will be coming….
