Roasted Beet & Goat Cheese Spinach Salad

The delicious combo of the sweet blueberries, creamy goat cheese and the roasted beet is a lively twist on the usual dinner salad. Add walnuts or chicken for more protein or keep it light by skipping the dressing!

Ingredients

+ 1 Yellow Beet

+ 1/2 slice of red onion

+ 2 cups spinach

+ 1/2 cup blueberries

+ 2 tbsp of homemade caesar salad dressing

+ 1/2 avocado diced

Method

Slice or cut your beets into quarters, brush with olive oil, salt and pepper on each side, and bake in oven at 380 degrees Fahrenheit for 20 minutes if in slices, or 40 minutes if in large quarters. My recommendation is to cut in 1/4 inch slices, roast for 20 minutes at 380 degrees and you’ll end up with crispy edges with a taste almost like a potato chip.  Prepare red onion, avocado, blueberries and toss with spinach. Once the beets are ready toss them in the salad, salt and pepper to taste and dress with desired dressing. My homemade caesar dressing can be found here. Easy and delicious! beet salad beet salad

Best Meatball Recipe

This is a delicious recipe that is better frozen for a day before serving. Not gluten free although if you remove the rye bread it could be made gluten free.

Ingredients

+ 1 lb of 80/20 beef
+ 1 cup of rye bread turned into bread crumbs using the food processor
+ 1/2 a cup of Parmesan, I used shavings and chopped in food professor with bread instead of the processed powder
+ 1 tsp each salt and pepper
+ 1 egg
+ 1 clove of garlic, minced
+ 1 tbsp parsley
+ 3/4 cup water after all other ingredients are combined, added 1/4 at a time

Method

Combined all ingredients, except for water. Form into 1.5-2 inch balls. Fry each meatball in olive oil on each side. Dry on paper towels.
Freeze them if you make a day before. Freezing them changes it from a softer texture to firmer meatballs.
Re-warm in oven with or without marinara sauce for 30 mins at 380 degrees Fahrenheit.I have other recipes on my blog, just click “recipes” below to see everything under that category.  I also do psychic readings, specializing in relationships, love, financial planning, pet readings, self healing, career and other areas.

Recipe: Spanakopita

I’ve been making spanakopita for years. The crusty filo dough is the perfect delivery system for this Greek spinach and cheese mixture. You can also ditch the filo and warm up the spinach and cheese mixture into rolled zucchini strips, eggplant or use as a side dish to any meal. spanakopita

Ingredients

1/2 cup ricotta

1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese

1 10oz package of chopped spinach

1/2 cup fresh parsley chopped fine

1/2 sauteed onion in olive oil

1 egg

1 tsp minced garlic

1/2 tsp dill

2 tbsp olive oil

1 package filo dough (found in frozen dessert section at your grocery store)

Directions

Mix all ingredients except the filo dough and the olive oil in a bowl. Sprinkle about 1/4 tsp of salt over mixture. Fold a filo dough sheet in half length wise. Put a couple tablespoons of the mixture at the top of the filo dough about 1.5 inches from the top. Fold the mixture in the filo dough into triangles as shown in the pictures above. Brush olive oil all over your filo triangle and put on a baking sheet. Bake in the oven at 375 degrees Fahrenheit for 25 minutes.

An alternative would be to put filo dough at the bottom of a 8″x8″ square pan and at the top, brushing olive oil over each filo dough sheet. Bake for 40 minutes 375 degrees Fahrenheit.

Buttered Spinach and Creamy Avocado Bowl Recipe



Not a difficult recipe, I intuitively came up with this snack and it is a very healthy 80 calories to boost your energy and end hunger. Keto, low carb, no carb and paleo friendly (sans butter and parm).

1 cup spinach

1/4 avocado diced

1/2 cup broccoli florets

1/2 tbsp butter (optional)

1 tbsp shaved parmesan

Salt and pepper to taste

The quickest way to put this together is to microwave the spinach and broccoli topped with the butter and parmesan for 1 minute on high. If you are going without dairy, you can boil both greens in some water until the broccoli is bright green. If using dairy, stir the spinach after removing from microwave. Dice avocado and put on top of the spinach and broccoli mix.

So satisfying, all 3 greens are healthy and hunger suppressing vegetables. Spinach and avocados act like diuretics so help you to lose water weight. Great for after workout or as a mini meal.

Salmon, Shrimp and Portabella Mushroom Ponchatrain Recipe, Gluten Free

This is a lovely, rich filling recipe for those of you on carb reduction meal plans such as keto, South Beach, etc. Gluten free, low carb. I had this in a New Orleans restaurant and decide to make it home for myself.

Salmon, Shrimp and Portabella Mushroom Ponchatrain Recipe

1/4 cup butter

1/4 cup half & half or heavy cream

Tsp of garlic, minced

1/2 cup spinach leaves

1 tsp parsley

Ground pepper to taste

1/2 cup portabella mushrooms

Diced tomato

Fish or chicken

Melt the butter in a saucepan and saute your garlic and mushrooms. Add your quarter cup of cream or half-and-half. I find half and half to be rich enough for me but you can add heavy cream if you would like it to be creamier. Add other spices and wilt the spinach in the sauce. A squeeze of lemon could be added here if you wish but I find it’s not necessary and not part of the original recipe.

Pour over chicken and shrimp, fish and crab meat, or fish and shrimp. This goes great on vegetables as well.
