5 Ways to Use Leftover Quinoa
QuinoaSalad

We know it’s no fun waiting for quinoa to boil when you’re already hungry. Make a large batch of the superfood ahead of time and enjoy it all week with these simple meal ideas: 1. Create a wholesome salad. The protein-packed grain pairs perfectly with fresh vegetables and adds a wonderful texture (and somewhat mysterious quality) to the everyday salad. With so many options to customize according to your taste buds, you really can’t go wrong. Drizzle with light vinaigrette and voila – your salad just received a delicious makeover. 2. Use a Swiss Diamond Fry Pan to make quinoa patties. Serve in a whole wheat bun with your favorite burger toppings. We love these Black Bean Quinoa Burgers from Love and Lemons. 3. Enjoy a warm bowl of quinoa for breakfast. Think *oatmeal* here – incorporate toppings to make it sweet (fruit, nuts and a dash of honey) or savory (sautéed greens, a poached egg and a pinch of red chili flakes). 4. Substitute ground beef with quinoa in your favorite chili recipe. Simply stir it in during the last 15 minutes of cooking time. 5. Still find yourself with a quinoa surplus? Freeze it for later use! Allow the quinoa to cool to room temperature then scoop desired portion amount into resalable plastic bags. Make sure you squeeze out all the air before placing in the freezer. Allow the quinoa to defrost at room temperature or dump into a bowl and microwave for one minute. What’s your favorite way to use leftover quinoa? Please share!

6 Kitchen Healers
Kitchen Healers

Most people think that you have to visit a corner drug store or a pharmacy for common ailments; others leave the doctor’s office stating they don’t have time to pick up the recommended supplements right away. However at times we are so uncomfortable that we need something quick and easy. Here are some treatments that can be found in the cupboards of your home, and don’t require a lot, or in some cases any, preparation. Turmeric The next time you are cooking an Asian dish in your Swiss Diamond Wok, be sure to toss in a generous amount of this spice not only for flavor, but also to enjoy the healing benefits it provides. Turmeric, which is filled with antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, has been shown to help sooth rheumatoid arthritis by reducing inflammation and pain. Cooking with Turmeric has also been shown to help with liver stimulation and prevention of stress on your liver. Turmeric can be found in your local food store usually with the spices. Also available in supplement pill form. Tea Before you southerners in the USA go racing to the local eatery to grab a gallon of your favorite Sweet Tea, be sure you read this all the way through. While it is no secret that tea has many health benefits, it depends on the type of tea that you are drinking as to how much help you are receiving from it. Green tea for instance can be used to aid in weight loss and detoxification. Green tea can also be used as a strong antioxidant, as well as preventing cancer. Peppermint tea is great after a meal to relieve any bloating and indigestion. Chamomile tea has been known to help with sleep and to calm. After a long day tea can not only be a delicious treat, but can help you stay healthy. Garlic, Onions & Ginger Staples in many homes just because they grew up with them, these powerful foods are great for fighting infections and boosting your immune system. Garlic is also known to keep your heart healthy where ginger is great for nausea. Stick to the fresh versions of these foods , as the dried and ground varieties that you find on your local spice shelf will have lost much of their health benefits. Coconut Oil While no oil is needed to cook in Swiss Diamond cookware, there are many benefits to cooking with coconut oil. While solid at room temperature, coconut oil melts at cooking temputre, which makes it great for cooking. This healing oil helps with cradle cap skin infections, and psoriasis. If you are feeling crafty you can also make healing lotions with this versatile oil. Coconut oil is readily found in your local grocer. Honey Used to treat burns and to heal wounds for centuries, this sweet treat can also help to cure your pains. Honey has antibacterial properties that make it an effective topical treatment for cuts, scrapes, rashes, burns and other open sores. When picking the honey for you, be sure to get local, raw, organic honey as it will help with allergens in your area as well. Water Water is the oldest therapy known to man. The healing powers of nature is deeply rooted in philosophy in naturopathic medicine and water, as part of nature, can be used to heal sprains, swelling, headaches and infections. Alternating between hot and cold applications is the trick to a faster recovery. Shoot for 3 minutes of hot followed by 30 seconds of cold water (or ice). Drinking plenty of water is also said to keep you not only hydrated, but also prevents dizziness. Most of these items you already have in your house. If you are missing any of these healing staples, be sure to stock up on your next trip to the farmers market or grocery store.

5 Tips for Keeping Your Kids Fit on the Road
Five Tips for Keeping Your Kids Fit on the Road

For me, life the is happiest when lived on the go!‭ ‬That’s what I’ve discovered by being a mom to three kids possessed of boundless energy.‭ ‬By keeping them active and well fed,‭ ‬I also keep them happy and healthy.‭ ‬This can be a challenge,‭ ‬though,‭ ‬especially when we are traveling.‭ ‬Fortunately,‭ ‬I’ve discovered some tricks for preparing healthy meals and providing physical activity on the road.‭ ‬In honor of an article I read on Gogobot about how families stay fit on the road,‭ ‬I decided I’d like to share‭ ‬my strategies with you. ‬Consider Food Before You Leave. – Before you leave the house,‭ ‬make sure you plan for meals,‭ ‬snacks and rest breaks.‭ ‬I find packing food works best for my family,‭ ‬so I always have sandwiches,‭ ‬fresh fruits and vegetables,‭ ‬granola bars and other healthy snacks‭ ‬in the car.‭ ‬ Plan for Activity. – Before you leave,‭ ‬plan activities that encourage movement.‭ ‬I like to research all of the things there are to do in the area where we will be vacationing.‭ ‬Then,‭ ‬my kids,‭ ‬my husband and I make a list of things we want to try.‭ ‬I always make sure the final list includes lots of healthy activities like swimming,‭ ‬walking and playing sports. Get Your Gear Together. – Make sure you pack gear that encourages activity.‭ ‬If your kids don’t have sneakers or comfortable clothes,‭ ‬they are unlikely to get enough exercise.‭ ‬Last month on our ski trip,‭ ‬I made sure everyone had sneakers and swimsuits.‭ ‬That lets us take advantage of the hotel pool and workout area.‭ ‬On our upcoming trip to the Magic Kingdom,‭ ‬all of the kids will have comfortable sports clothes to encourage them to run and play. ‬Respect Routine. – If you’re like me,‭ ‬your life is a constant battle to maintain healthy routines.‭ ‬While‭ ‬a few extra treats and a few late nights are an important part of any vacation with kids,‭ ‬you need to set limits.‭ ‬If your kids eat nothing but junk food and have no rules on the vacation,‭ ‬they will be very difficult to deal with when you return home.‭ ‬ Have Fun‭! – Planning ahead is a great way to maintain healthy routines while on the road,‭ ‬but don’t go overboard.‭ ‬A tense mom makes her kids tense,‭ ‬and that isn’t healthy for anyone.‭ ‬While you are away,‭ ‬enjoy your kids and relax.‭ Hopefully,‭ ‬these tips help you to have a happy and healthy vacation.‭ ‬I know these strategies have saved my sanity on more than one occasion,‭ ‬and I am happy to‭ ‬be able to‭ ‬share them with you during‭ ‬Fit Family Lifestyles Month.

Mediterranean Recipes make Diabetes-Friendly Eatin...
Sicilian Swordfish and Eggplant Bundles

Healthful meal plans like the Mediterranean Diet, along with regular exercise, can help people with diabetes feel better and stay healthier. Best of all, due to the number of delicious culinary cultures in the countries surrounding the Mediterranean Sea, flavorful and satisfying foods are the norm on the Mediterranean Diet. No one following this lifestyle needs to sacrifice taste or tradition. The Mediterranean Diet has been linked to lowering the risk of diabetes, heart disease, and stroke, as well as helping those already diagnosed with diabetes maintain healthy glucose levels. Rich in flavor, heart-healthy fiber, omega-3 fatty acids, and antioxidants, the Mediterranean style of cooking has proven to be beneficial for people with diabetes—and for good reason. This delicious diet of fruits, vegetables, lean meats, and whole grains can help lower blood pressure, glucose levels, and risk for heart disease without cutting out amazing taste. I was inspired to write The Mediterranean Diabetes Cookbook (Nautilus Silver Award and Starred Review by Publishers’ Weekly and named Best. Diabetes. Cookbook. Ever.) when my mother was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, but the recipes are delicious enough for everyone to enjoy! Here are some recipes from the book that make eating healthy a pleasure! Enjoy! Sicilian Swordfish and Eggplant Bundles/Involtini di Pesce Spade e Melanzane Swordfish and eggplant are culinary ingredients which the Sicilian table inherited under Arab rule. Before the arrival of the Arabs in Sicily, swordfish, known for being extremely difficulty to catch, were not eaten. Sicilian fisherman learned how to catch sword fish from the Arabs. Even today, Sicilian fisherman use Arabic words instead of Italian ones while fishing. Since swordfish is not always stocked in American supermarkets, it’s a good idea to call ahead and find out when a shipment will be arriving and place an order. Pumpkin swordfish has a slightly sweeter taste than regular swordfish, but it also works well in this recipe. Very thinly sliced fresh tuna could be substituted, if necessary, in this recipe. For best results, use a mandolin grater or a very sharp knife to slice the eggplant. Serves: 4 Serving Size: 1 bundle Ingredients: 1 medium sized eggplant, sliced lengthwise into paper thin slices 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, divided 2 cloves garlic, minced 1 cup chopped boxed tomatoes (Pomi brand) 1 cup strained boxed tomatoes (Pomi brand) 2 tablespoons freshly chopped basil 2 tablespoons pine nuts 1/2 teaspoon sea salt, divided 1/8 teaspoon freshly grated pepper Dash of crushed dried red chili flakes 2 (3/4 pound) boneless swordfish fillets Preparation: Preheat broiler and place eggplant slices on a baking sheet. Brush with 1 tablespoon olive oil and bake for a few minutes until tender and cooked through. Remove from oven and set aside. Heat remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add garlic and cook until it releases its aroma- do not let garlic turn brown. Stir in chopped and strained tomatoes, basil, pine nuts, 1/4 teaspoon salt, pepper, chili and chili flakes, stir, and cover. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 5 minutes. In the meantime, place a large piece of wax paper on a work surface. Place fish fillets on wax paper, and cover with another piece. Use a flat edged meat hammer to pound fish into a very thin, even (1/4-inch) thickness. Check under the wax paper from time to time to make sure that fish is not tearing. Cut each piece in half to make 4 pieces. Top each piece with thin layers of the eggplant slices. (If you have extra eggplant slices, reserve them as a garnish). Starting at the wide end, roll up fish, completely encasing eggplant. Use toothpicks or skewers to secure the rolls. Slowly remove lid from tomato sauce and add rolls into simmering sauce. Cover and cook for 10-15 minutes, turning once, or until fish is cooked through. Transfer fish to a serving platter, remove skewers, and top with remaining sauce. Serve remaining eggplant slices along the sides of the dish. Bruschetta with Artichoke Puree and Roasted Red Peppers This is my favorite ways to serve bruschetta. The first topping is an artichoke puree which I used to enjoy while living in Rome. It was a typical antipasto served at one of my favorite pizzerias. Luckily, it is healthy and easy to make. Use the best quality olive oil possible. Ingredients: 1 (10 oz) loaf crusty, day -old Italian bread 1 1/3 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil Artichoke puree 1 (14 ounce) can artichoke hearts, drained and rinsed 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil Juice of 1 lemon 2 Tbsp Romano cheese salt, to taste freshly ground pepper, to taste 1 large roasted red pepper (from the jar), drained and thinly sliced Preparation: With a large serrated knife, slice the bread into 1/4- inch slices on the diagonal. Lay the bread slices evenly on cookie sheets. Brush both sides with extra-virgin olive oil. To make the puree: Place the artichokes, olive oil, lemon juice, cheese, salt, and freshly ground pepper into the food processor and process until a smooth puree is formed (less than 1 minute). Taste the puree. Adjust the seasoning if necessary. Set aside. Place the bread under the broiler. Toast for 3-5 minutes until golden. Remove from the oven. Turn bread over. Return to broiler and toast for another 3 minutes, or until golden on the other side. Remove from the oven. Slather a thick layer of puree on each slice of bread. Top with red pepper slices. Serve warm. Original Recipe: Amy Riolo.

Tribute Recipe: Johnny Cash Chili
Johnny Cash Personal Chili Recipe

Today, in honor of Johnny Cash’s birthday (1932), we are sharing the star’s personal chili recipe. It’s perfect for brisk winter nights! John Carter Cash, the only child of Johnny and June, shares this recipe and other stories from his childhood in his memoir, “House of Cash: The Legacies of My Father, Johnny Cash.” INGREDIENTS 2 lb ground venison or ground beef 1 lb venison steaks or sirloin 2 large sweet onions 3 cloves garlic 2 Tbs. canola oil 3 cans whole tomatoes (16-oz.) 2 large green bell peppers 1 large red bell pepper 5 jalapeno peppers diced (to taste) 1 habanero pepper (to taste) 2 packets McCormick mild chili seasoning Salt and black pepper 1/2 cup chili powder (New Mexico chili powder, if available) 1/3 cup cumin 1 Tb. sage 1 1/2 tsp. oregano 1 Tb. cayenne pepper 2 cans black beans (15-oz.) 2 cans pinto beans (15-oz.) 2 cans kidney beans (15-oz.) 1 can chili beans (15-oz.) 1 bottle beer (12-oz.) 1/4 cup sugar A handful (about 1/4 cup) of self-rising cornmeal DIRECTIONS – See Johnny Cash’s original directions and notes here. 1. Chop the steak into medium pieces. Finely chop the onion and garlic. 2. In a Swiss Diamond stock pot, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Brown the steak in the oil in batches, draining off some of the fat if necessary. Remove from the heat and set aside. In a Swiss Diamond skillet, brown the ground meat over medium-high heat. Drain off the fat and set aside. 3. With the oil remaining in the pot, brown half the onions and garlic over medium heat until they are caramelized. Now add the well-drained ground beef and steak. Stir and heat it all up. 4. Add the cans of tomatoes, the bell peppers, hot peppers (if using), and the remainder of the onions and garlic. Heat to a brisk simmer, stirring often. 5. Now it’s time for the spices. Dad would normally put in the McCormick chili packets, followed by the salt and black pepper, chili powder, cumin, sage, oregano, and cayenne pepper. This is the time to begin tasting your chili. 6. Once the taste is to your liking, drain the cans of beans and add to the mixture. Now taste again, as you will likely want to add some more spices because the beans mellow their flavor. 7. Once the chili tastes right, pour in the bottle of beer. Stir well. Cover and simmer for at least 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. 8. Add sugar to taste, but be careful not to use too much. Chili becomes something else entirely if too sweet. Simmer, covered, for at least another 30 minutes, making sure to stir so it does not burn. 9. Now grab that handful of cornmeal, uncover the chili, and stir it in. John Carter Cash says, “Follow the recipe exactly, and you will get a good pot of chili. Change it to suit your own taste, and you will have a marvelous pot of chili.” Enjoy!
