Day 6 of 7 of our Get Healthier Campaign

Lunch. The triple S- Salmon, Salad and Seeds


A quick spin in the kitchen and we  pulled together a salad of sorts with some delicious smoked salmon for lunch.  Don't get caught up always needing a recipe - get creative and start trying different combinations of foods, you will be surprised at what works. We often stare into the fridge expecting a perfect meal to appear but often its the mishaps and crazy concoctions of us throwing leftovers together that end up tasting the best. Have you tried anything strange and found a winning combination? Let us know in the comments below- we are always looking for new ideas.




The triple S- Salmon, Salad and Seeds


Ingredients:  
  • 1 large cucumber
  • Half an avocado
  • 3-4 pieces smoked salmon
  • Some houmous- we have stocked up on the raw houmous from Living foods- delicious.
  • 1 large carrot
  • Left over cooked quinoa from last night
  • 2 handfuls spinach
  • 1/2 a cup alfalfa sprouts
  • nuts and seed mix
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Chili flakes

Directions:

For the cucumber rolls:
 
With a vegetable peeler slice the cucumber lengthwise to create thin strips. We made 10. ( the first few will be a bit narrower than the rest but still taste good.)
Chop the avocado into cubes
Slice the salmon into small thin pieces

To assemble- 
Place pieces of salmon on a slice of cucumber. Add a piece of avocado and roll up with the fillings inside.

For quinoa:
Cube pieces of cucumber and add the remaining avocado to quinoa. Sprinkle with lots of seeds ( sunflower, pumpkin, sesame). Sprinkle loads of olive oil and chilli flakes to taste.

For the rest:
Cut the carrots into batons, add some spinach and alfalfa sprouts to a plate and finish off with a healthy dollop of houmous and some olive oil.
