Quick Food Doesn’t Have to be Fast Food

Happy Monday and a VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR to all of you!!

I hope the coming year brings you all much health, happiness, LOVE and success!

How are those New Year Resolutions holding up so far? Joined the gym yet? Started on your new eating plan?? Let this year be THE year that you allow yourself to get to your goals so that you can feel and look great.

In an effort to help you get the New Year started off on the right foot, I have an easy, delicious and healthy lunch recipe for you that will take no time at all to prepare, that you can take with you for a balanced meal at the office and which will keep you from ordering in or getting take out.

Lunch can be a challenging time to stay committed to your health goals. In your busy and hectic life, it can often be hard to find the time to prepare a healthy meal you can bring with you and it can be twice as hard finding healthy options from the plethora of take-out restaurants in your area. The feedback I hear from my clients is that lunch can be a challenging time indeed.

Well, no worries, because today I am going to share with you an easy recipe that you can make the night before in just minutes and then enjoy with some greens, crackers, or my personal favorite, endive, for a nutritious lunch. It also happens to be loaded in Omega-3 essential fatty acids that will nourish your brain, helping to keep you focused and on point the remainder of your day.

See what you think and then give it a try. I am sure you will love it! And as always, I look forward to your comments below. Specifically, I’d love to hear what gets in the way of YOUR ability to have a balanced and healthy lunch? What challenges do you face when trying to eat well? Love your feedback and also naturally, want to hear what you thought of the salad.

Have a great Monday and a wonderful start to your week and your New Year!

Easy Lunch Recipe: Omega-3 Rich Shrimp Salad

shrimpsalad

Ingredients

  • 1 Cup shrimp (peeled and cooked)
  • 1/4 Cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/4 Cup chopped red onion
  • Himalayan salt
  • Lemon juice
  • Olive oil
  • Dill
  • 2 Heads of endive lettuce

Directions

Place all the ingredients, except for the endive lettuce, into a mixing bowl and mix well. Use the olive oil, salt & pepper to taste. That’s it! You can serve on it’s own, or enjoy with crackers. My favorite way is to scoop it into the leaves of endive lettuce!

    Barbara, I just wanted to swing by and thank you so very much for your time and dedication to others’ health and your own life’s work and journey. Your Monday e-mails always help to keep me reminded, refreshed and staying the course for my health. Without health, we don’t get to enjoy everything else, right?! Thanks!

    Oh and you had me at Shrimp & Walnut. 😉
