Ingrid once said, “if I had to eat only one food for the rest of my life, it would be avocado”. I agree. I think most of us have probably made this unnecessary decision of selecting the one food item you could eat for the rest of your existence… Guacamole makes everything better and the roasted corn adds a unique and delicious flavor!
Roasted Corn Guacamole
2 Ripe Avocados
handful of cilantro
2 green onions
1/2 bag of Trader Joe’s Roasted Corn
salt & pepper
Peel and mash two avocados. Dice tomatoes, green onions and cilantro. Blend avocado with tomatoes, onion, and cilantro. Mix in roasted corn and the juice of one lime. Add salt & pepper to taste.
Loaded with protein and fiber, lentils are not only a healthy meal option–but a tasty one too! Growing up, our mom prepared lentil soup during the chilly months; however, we’ve managed to enhance their flavor with our own special recipe. With steamed lentils from Trader Joe’s and an array of vegetables, lunch is served.
Lentil & Veggie Medley
Heat 1 tablespoon of grape seed oil over medium heat. Chop carrots, red onion, zucchini, squash and bok choy and add to preheated pan. Saute vegetables and add prepared lentils. Heat thoroughly.
*If you’d like a little spice (and added nutritional value) sprinkle cayenne pepper while sauteing vegetables.
