Delicious Easy Flatbread

Delicious & Easy Fruit & Cheese Flatbread

I really enjoy these flatbreads. They're so yummy & light as well as so easy to make!

The below pictured flatbread is shown with apricot. My favorite are the red grape & goat cheese flatbread as well as the pear & goat cheese flatbread.

What you will need:

1 Package of Whole Wheat Naan Bread: (thicker & moister than pita bread, found at most health food stores near the breads)

Some baby arugula leaves

Some Goat Cheese

1 Pear or Apricot or  some Red Grapes: (my favorite: red grapes or pear)

Some slivered Almonds (optional)

Some Balsamic Vinegar

I toasted the almonds to bring out the sweeter flavor of the almond oil. It takes just a few minutes on medium heat. Just until they begin to brown.

Arrange all ingredients except the goat's cheese onto naan bread. Sprinkle some balsamic vinegar on top. Bake at 350 for about 15 minutes. Bread should have a crispy bottom.

Lastly, crumble some goat cheese (using a fork can make crumbling much easier) onto the baked flatbread, cut into quarters & enjoy!

Thursday YUMs: Grilled Tilapia with Mango Avocado Salsa

Ken's mom made this last year as a special for me while I was in NY at American Ballet Theatre. I LOVE this summer dish! It is super easy to put together and is quite delicious every time. :)

The salad that you see on the left and right was even easier.. because I didn't make it! It was a tabbouleh salad from Whole Foods. It was really a good, multigrain, refreshing and healthy pasta salad to side my dish. I would definitely recommend their salad bar to those of you that are in a time jam as far as dinner for the evening goes.

What you will need:

4 Tilapia Filets

2 Avocados, Skinned & Pitted

2 Mangoes, Skinned & Pitted

1 Jalapeno Pepper, stem removed

How to LOVE it:

I was able to get all of the ingredients mixed and smooth pretty easily by using my processor/blender. You may add more Jalapeno to taste if you are feeling a more spicy dish for the evening.

We grilled the tilapia in tin foil for 5-6 minutes on each side.

I placed the salsa mixture on the plate under the tilapia, and topped the fish of with it as well!

ENJOY!

Stay posted for the July schedule, which I will release tonight, as well as the reservation form to be released by this weekend!

See you soon! xo

Because it's good for you...

Again-- Thank you ALL for being so patient with me. I have been working on so many things, it's been impossible to keep up with it all! I have some great and exciting news coming for you next week! :D I can't wait to share! So as I was grocery shopping a few weeks ago, I came across some Hemp Seeds. Pretty interesting, I thought. I've been seeing Hemp seeds a lot lately, and was especially impressed with their nutritional value. A serving size is just two tablespoons, and contains more protein than an egg!

They contain all 9 Amino Acids essential for muscle repair and growth, as well as plentiful Omega 3 Fatty Acids (good fats, unsaturated) for optimal metabolic function and immune health. With just two tablespoons per serving, these can be added to plenty of meals in a variety of seamless ways!

Recipes Using Hemp Seeds will be posted tomorrow (Friday)! I promise! :)
