"Party in your Mouth" recipes to try this week! by: JAM

Written by 

Boring, bland foods are NOT the only way to prep your bod for the beach this summer! Instead, prep your fridge with "clean" ingredients so that you can quickly and easily throw a Party in your Mouth. 


Here's my fridge; chopped red onion, chopped jalepeno, chopped peppers (red and green), (rinsed and strained) kidney, black and cannellini beans, sliced cantaloupe, drained tuna fish, cooked sweet potatoes, peeled garlic, hard boiled eggs...the kale (at the bottom) and the corn aren't recipe ready yet, I'm getting there! This is a lengthy process but at least I know what's going into my body because I am making it myself! 

Set aside some time on a Sunday night to shop for and prep your favorite "clean" foods too. Get out your ntupperware or visit your local Smart and Final for containers like these. Trust me, the hard work will pay off and you'll be a whiz at this in no time.  


I’ve been experimenting in the kitchen for quite some time and have found that I go through phase-like obsessions with different recipes, partly because it is convenient to stay stocked with a few ingredients at a time rather than spending $100’s.  

 "Skinny Food" Obsessions (right now):

Bean and Tuna Salad

This colorful mix provides a balanced source of nutrients and a genius plan for lunch on the go. Below is my favorite way to make it but get creative and add any veggies you want!

You'll need;  dark red kidney beans, black beans, cannellini beans, red onion, jalepeno, red bell pepper, lemon, chunk light tuna (in water), relish and black pepper. 

It's ok to buy canned beans but be sure to get all the salt and preservatives off by rinsing them before you store in fridge.


 -Mix 3 tablespoons of each bean and 1/2 can of tuna in small bowl. Add as much onion, bell pepper and jalepeno as you'd like and finish by stirring in 1 tbls relish, a dash of black pepper and fresh squeezes of lemon juice. BAM- Party in your Mouth!



Curry Raisin Carrot Salad 

You will not be able to get enough of this!

You'll need; (1 cup) shredded carrots, curry powder,  (1/2 cup) raisins, (1/4 cup thinly sliced) celery, 1/3 cup of Vegenaise or plain yogurt and (1/4 cup) chopped walnuts- optional. 

 -Mix all together with a bit of the curry powder (to your taste) and serve chilled. Enjoy as a salad or (whole wheat) pita filling. 


Kale, Corn N' Shrimp

I'm going to concoct this asap when I'm done writing this blog, talking about all my favorite foods is making my mouth water!

I'll need, I mean...

You'll need; fresh kale, corn (slice kernals off the cob into small bowl), onion, minced garlic, 1tbls olive oil, 6 jumbo shrimp, lemon and chili powder. (Avocado- optional)

-Remove leafy greens from the stem of kale and  satue (on medium) with 1 tbls olive oil, 1 tbls water, 2 minced garlic cloves and about 1/4 cup chopped onion. Stir often and only keep over heat about 5 minutes (the less you cook the kale, the more nutrients stay!)


-Spoon this kale mix out of pan, into salad bowl. Then: add corn, shrimp and chili powder to saute pan and cook on high for 5-10 minutes (stirring often). 

-Once that is done, add it on top of the kale mix. Add avocado if desired and fresh squeezes of lemon juice. Gorgeous!  

 Ok, now get going! You have work to do! Please send in your favorite recipes so that I can share them with other readers to enjoy too.
