Method: Fill a tall Collin’s glass with ice. Add champagne first. then St.-Germain, then Club Soda. Stir completely.* Garnish with a lemon twist, making sure to squeeze essential oils into the glass.

* St-Germain is heavier than wine, so it will settle to the bottom unless mixed thoroughly.

TILAPIA FILET TOPPED WITH SPICY MANGO SALSA SPICY MANGO SALSA

Posted on: September 5, 2016

Spice is optional, so the spice level can be what you like. (Taste before adding extra or even before adding the spices, and add at your own degression). But in our home we love the Spice. The spicer the better!!
My husband is from the Islands, so he is no stranger to spice. And I have always loved spicy foods, and my palette has grown a lot over the years. But I also think I’ve grown accustom to the heat because of my husbands tolerance. Though I can’t reach his levels of spice, I’m somwhere between medium -high heat where he’s into extreme heat. Anyways, here is my recipe for Spicy Mango Salsa.

Serves 2-4
Double the amount if your making more

READ MORE

1 mango sliced and diced into small cubes
1 handful of Grape tomatos sliced and diced into small pieces
1 half of a red onion peeled, sliced, diced into small pieces
2 jalapenos cut , deseeded and diced into small pieces
1 teaspoon of Ground Pepper
1 teaspoon of Cumin
1 teaspoon of Chili Powder
1 teaspoon of Cayenne Pepper

Place all the ingredients in a medium or large mixing bowl and mix all the ingredients together thoroughly. Once everything is blended and mixed together, you can serve with just about anything. I topped off our tilapia filets with this salsa and it was delicious.
Other great options to pair this with are:
Over salmon
Baked chicken breast
Just on its own with some tortilla chips.

Healthy, Simple, Easy, and Delicious, 4 things I’m all about when i’m cooking in the kitchen!
I don’t add any salt to anything that I cook, because the spices give enough flavor on their own.

CAPRESE AVOCADO TOAST

Use any kind of bread you like (Wheat, Multigrain, Sourdough, Ezeikel etc).. I usually go for Wheat, Multigrain or Ezeikel. Then toast your bread
1 Heirloom Tomato (Sliced or diced, your preference)
1 or 2 Avocados (Depending on how hungry you are)(Cut, DeSeed, and Scoop out into a bowl)
Fresh Mozzarella sliced into cubes or small slices
Ground Pepper
Red Pepper Flakes (To add a litlle spice and kick to your Avo Toast, trust me your tastebuds will LOVE it)
EVOO To drizzle on top of your toast
Balsamic (Glaze or Vinegarette) to Drizzle on top
2or 3 Fresh Basil Leaves (Optional) (Last Step)

After you’ve cut, deseed, and scooped your avocado, place in a bowl and mash it up. Mash it up to however you like (Smooth or leave some chucks whatever your heart desires). Then set aside, then once your toast is all toasted and ready, place on a plate and assemble your avocado toast. Spread your avocado onto the toast. Add a sprinkle of ground pepper and the red pepper flakes. Place your diced or sliced heirlooms on your toast, next do the same for your mozzarella. Sprinkle a little more red pepper flakes (optional and your desired amount). Drizzle a little EVOO and top it off with a your balsamic glaze or vinegarette either works just fine. Top your toast off with a few basil leaves this step is completely is optional. But it’s so delicious, how can you not try it. Either way you’ll love this combination!

AVOCADO SMOOTHIE

Posted on: September 2, 2016

Avocados! It’s all the rave now from avocado toast, to using it in our guacamoles, and now in smoothies. I know what your thinking, really avocados in a smoothie….?? And the answer is YASSSSSS!! It’s absolutely, amazingly delicious.

Avocados aren’t only delicious, they’re good for you too. They’re the good kind of fat that we all want and need. Trust me, they’re that good. Avocados have a lot of health benefits too.

Avocados are an excellent source of antioxidants that may help slow aging and prevent certain cancers and heart disease. They are high in folate which also helps protect your heart and may guard against stroke. Studies have shown that avocados can lower cholesterol, guard against eye disease, help fight oral cancer, prevent breast cancer and has been shown to inhibit prostate cancer.
Avocados promote the absorption of certain nutrients such as lycopene and beta carotene, so add a tomato and carrot to your avocado smoothies to help maximize your nutrition.

I experimented the other day and I made this smoothie. And when I tell you its so delish, easy and healthy for you, it REALLY is. It helps with weight loss, if you drink this smoothie for breakfast and dinner. You’ll see results, when incorporated with a healthy balanced diet and exercise.
