Broccoli and Kale Garlic Noodles

Broccoli and Kale Garlic Noodles

if you’re a busy mom/person, or you have a child/adult-child who still refuses to eat their greens, I definitely suggest giving these garlic noodles a try! You can always tell them that it's a new type of green pesto. With all the garlic and parmesan in it, you could barely tell the difference! Just a friendly FYI… be aware that this isn’t an appropriate lunch when you have to give a really important meeting, or if you’re going on a date. Unless your date eats these garlic noodles, too. Garlic breath is a silent but smelly killer.

Healthy Chilled Recipes To Get On Track | Get Healthy With Valentina

Cold weather doesn't have to get you down! I recently came back from Mexico to a cold Germany. Despite the cold, I wanted to eat chilled or really exotic food things make me feel a little more like I was at home. Of course, I changed some ingredients to make the dishes healthier because I wasn't exactly the healthiest person on earth when I was in Mexico.   Eating well is all about balance.

Make This Healthy Vegan Burrito For Lunch

Make This Healthy Vegan Burrito For Lunch

A healthy vegan burrito is the perfect way to eat your vegetables! It's both fun and satisfying, too. Just take two big leaves of collard greens. This vegetable tastes a bit like spinach and romaine mixed together. What I love about collard greens is that they have a lot of surface area - this is perfect for wrapping veggies. In this recipe, the cherry tomatoes add just the right amount of sweetness to complement the other ingredients. Cutting the veggies finely makes it delicious and easy to wrap. I also added some cilantro and arugula - these are optional, but I like the flavors that each of these herbs bring to the vegan burrito. They add just the right kick!

Cooler weather means warmer dishes on our plates. As much as we'd like to eat banana ice cream every single day, it isn't comfortable to have a persistent case of the shivers. Unearth your scarves from the cavernous depths of your closet, snuggle under a warm blanket, and make these healthy salmon recipes for fall.  You'll get a generous dose of omega-3 fatty acids and you'll feel satisfied for hours.

Salmon and peas risotto

Although this recipe is a bit more complicated than the meals I include in my regular repertoire, it's absolutely worth it. This healthy salmon and peas risotto just takes a little bit of time, care, and patience. Make sure that you select fillets of salmon without any bones - you won't want them to prick your mouth as you eat this delicate dish. Use brown arborio rice to maximize the amount of fiber in this recipe, as whole grains are slower to digest and will keep you fuller for longer.

Make this for a special family dinner, or cook a big batch for yourself and eat it throughout the week. Click here for a homemade vegetable stock recipe, or use a prepared version with reduced sodium.

Ingredients

  • Vegetable stock – enough to cook both the salmon and the rice with it
  • Canned or frozen peas
  • 2 fillets of salmon without any fish bone
  • 1 cup of arborio rice
  • 1 onion
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1 hot pepper
  • Olive oil
  • Some lemon juice
  • Salt and pepper

Salmon and peas risotto recipe - a perfect healthy family dinner // The PumpUp Blog

Instructions

Bring about 2-3 cups vegetable stock to boil in a large pot. When starts to boil, turn the heat on low and then put the salmon and let it cook. When the salmon is ready, take out of pot and set aside.

In a non-stick pan sprinkle some olive oil, chop the onion and the garlic in thin squares or strips and let it cook until onion is translucent and garlic is browned. Then add the rice, stir, add one ladle of the vegetable stock at a time and stir until all the stock is gone – repeat until the rice is ready (should be a bit gummy when you bite it, rather than hard). Season as you wish.

Before you put the last ladle of stock in, cut the add in hot pepper and peas and stir until cooked. Break the salmon apart into medium flakes and fold into risotto. Add some fresh parsley and a little bit of lemon juice and enjoy.

Drop Everything and Make This Vegan Rainbow Summer Salad

Drop Everything and Make This Vegan Rainbow Summer Salad

Vegan-Rainbow-Summer-Salad-Recipe-PumpUp.jpg

Last month, I shared the recipe for one of my staple vegan dishes: pancakes. I'm going to continue to share some of my favorite vegan staples with this rainbow summer salad recipe.  You might question this decision and start thinking, "A salad? That's nothing special." You're probably right. A salad is nothing special: anybody can make a salad by throwing a bunch of ingredients together. But as I've recreated salads over the past years, I began to identify a few must-have ingredients for one that is consistently yummy, energizing and hydrating. These ingredients happen to be perfect for the end summer. They're easy on your wallet and easy on the eyes. This vegan rainbow summer salad is packed with healthy and yummy ingredients // The PumpUp Blog

The dressing I created for this is very high in fat (oil). I personally wouldn't recommend consuming too much fat in one go, but I have yet to find a yummy low fat vegan dressing. If you know one, please let me know in the comments below. That's why balance is important. If you recreate this recipe, I recommend that you only use a very small amount of the dressing because it's quite rich.

I served the vegan rainbow summer salad with wraps this time around. Depending on how you end up eating the salad (or your level of hunger) adjust the proportions of the veggie ingredients as needed. Keep the same measurements for the dressing.

  1. Chop up the cucumber, bell peppers, mushrooms and cherry tomatoes.
  2. Rinse and drain your corn. Place drained corn in a large bowl and add chopped vegetables.
  3. In a shallow pan on medium to low heat, roast your pine nuts gently. Turn down heat when slightly browned. Let them cool before adding them to the salad.
  4. For the dressing, add all ingredients into a resealable jar and shake until well combined.
  5. Add a bit of dressing to your salad, mix thoroughly and serve with wraps as a main dish or eat the salad as a side dish.
  6. Either way, enjoy!

Easy Fish Tacos with Mango Cucumber and Tomato Coriander Salsa

Easy Fish Tacos with Mango Cucumber and Tomato Coriander Salsa

Easy-Fish-Tacos-with-two-salsas-The-PumpUp-Blog.jpg

I can’t believe that in two weeks, September will be here. I definitely haven’t seen the time fly by! It feels like it’s only just been a couple of days that I closed my textbooks for the final time and submitted my last paper…Now, a couple of weeks from now, so many of you will be going back to school. To be honest, I might be one of the only few people out there that actually misses being in school. I loved every aspect of being in university; the excitement of picking out new notebooks, agendas, pens, post-its, buying those oh-so expensive textbooks, getting my schedule and finding all the classrooms. And let’s not forget all those fun nights and weekends out with friends, discovering new things, and also cramming sessions the night before a big exam. Yummy, healthy, easy fish tacos for a protein-packed weeknight dinner! Perfect if you're heading back to school this September. // The PumpUp Blog

Instead of dreading that first week back, I thought I’d share with you a delicious recipe that is excellent to make for a back to school event or one of those last get-togethers before everyone moves back to campus.

This is a 3 ½ step meal that is so much fun to prepare, either on your own, or as a team with a bunch of friends: who doesn’t like a good old kitchen party?

I’m sharing with you my favourite & easy fish tacos along with two delicious salsas and stuffing ideas!

Mango Cucumber Salsa

Easy, healthy, yummy fish tacos for a protein-packed weeknight dinner! Perfect if you're heading back to school this September. // The PumpUp Blog

  • 1 cup of frozen mango chunks, or two fresh mangoes, chopped into bite-size pieces
  • 1 small to half of a large cucumber, chopped into bite-size pieces
  • Handful of fresh coriander, finely minced
  • ¼ of a red onion, finely minced
  • Splash of apple cider vinegar
  • Splash of olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Mix everything up in a nice serving dish and let sit for an hour (if you can) before serving it so that the flavours are all released.

Tomato and Coriander Salsa

Easy, healthy, yummy fish tacos for a protein-packed weeknight dinner! Perfect if you're heading back to school this September. // The PumpUp Blog

  • 1 large tomato, chopped into bite size pieces
  • Handful of fresh coriander, finely minced
  • 2 to 3 cloves of garlic, finely minced
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Splash of olive oil

Mix everything up in a nice serving dish and let sit for an hour (if you can) before serving it so that the flavours are all released. If you’re not a fan of coriander, you can always use parsley

Easy Fish Tacos

  • 1 to 2 fillets of white fish (Cod, Turbot, Tilapia, etc.)
  • 1 tbsp. Cajun spice, or chili powder, cayenne, etc.
  • ½ tsp. to 1 tbsp. cumin powder
  • ½ tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 tsp. of brown sugar
  • Pinch of cinnamon
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • Zest of 1 lemon

Mix all your spices in a small dish, and then sprinkle them over a clean plate. Pat your fish fillets in the spices, coat both sides and pat the spices in.

On a hot pan, add in your fillets and cook each side for about 4 minutes, or until they are cooked through.

Once cooked, flake the pieces with a fork to let it cool down.

Now the fun part: assembling your fish tacos!

Easy, healthy, yummy fish tacos for a protein-packed weeknight dinner! Perfect if you're heading back to school this September. // The PumpUp Blog

When we made them, we filled our easy fish tacos with the salsas, as well as some yogurt dip (plain yogurt with two garlic cloves crushed in it), hummus, and braised Brussel sprouts (chop Brussel sprouts and pan fry in a tiny bit of butter and garlic) instead of cabbage.

We also served it with a side of bean, rice and corn salad, for which the recipe will be on my main blog this Sunday!

Easy, Vegan, and Oil-Free Green Thai Curry

Easy, Vegan, and Oil-Free Green Thai Curry

Instagram2.jpg

If it were down to food and people positivity, I'd be living in Thailand. If I had to eat only one meal a day, it would be an intense battle between pasta and green thai curry. Good curry not only tastes amazing, but it also gets your metabolism going, improves blood circulation and boosts your immune system.

Needless to say, I jump at every opportunity to eat at a Thai restaurant. But one thing has been bothering me: I just don't really know what ingredients go into my food, not to mention the quantities of processed vegetable oils or sugar. I tried for the longest time to recreate a decent traditional green thai curry at home that tastes exactly like the one I get at thai restaurants. I've always failed, until now.

I'd like to share my easy, vegan and oil-free Green Thai Curry Recipe.

Easy vegan and oil-free green thai curry // Shaynaraleonie for The PumpUp Blog

Easy, Vegan, and Oil-Free Green Thai Curry

  • 1 tsp galangal
  • 1 tsp lemongrass
  • 1 tsp xylitol or rice mirin
  • 1 tbsp thai basil

  2. Add the galangal, lemongrass, xylitol, thai basil + lime juice and reduce to a low heat.
  3. Add the rest of the coconut milk and vegetables except your leafy greens as they tend to cook much quicker, let all simmer until your vegetables are tender.
  4. Add your leafy greens, give it a taste test and add chillies or tamari sauce, if it's not spicy/salty enough.
  5. Top with more thai basil, lime and spring onions.
  6. Enjoy it hot and spicy!
