Day 5 and 6 Recipes

Here are two more recipes for you to try.  Totally quick, easy and delish!

Remember that diet alone can cause you to gain or loose unwanted lbs.  So, if you're super pressed for time and just can't seem to get your workouts in (like me recently:( ) then at least keep your diet super good and clean!  Don't not eat because that will just mess up your metabolism.  I always try to eat something at least every 2-3 hours.

Oh, and don't forget to enter for the giveaway this week!  Details below.  Giveaway closes Thursday at midnight; mountain standard time.

Make it a great day!

Day 7 Recipe
Salmon Patties With a Green Salad
1 can alaskan salmon
1 egg
1/2 small onion (chopped)
1 tsp garlic (crushed)
2 Tbsp olive oil or coconut oil
1 piece of whole wheat toast (crumbled) or you could use about 1/2 cup almond meal

Mix salmon, egg, onions, garlic and crumbled toast together.  Make patties about 3x3.  Heat olive oil in skillet then place patties and cook on both sides until golden brown.  Place on bed of lettuce and enjoy!  If you feel like you want more flavor add a vinaigrette dressing.

Day 8 Recipe
Quinoa Pasta with Sauteed Swiss Chard

1 bunch swiss chard
2 Tbsp olive oil
1-2 shallots (thinly sliced)
2 tsp garlic (minced)
1 Tbsp capers (rinse and drain)
1/2 pound quinoa noodles cooked al dente
1-2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
freshly grated parmesan cheese
salt and fresh ground pepper (to taste)

Trim tough ends of swiss chard.  Slice stems and leaves into thin strips.
Heat olive oil in sauté pan and add sliced swiss chard stems and shallots.
Saute until shallots are softened (2-3 min)
Add garlic and capers, sauté for another min.  Season to taste with salt and pepper.
Toss cooked pasta with sautéed swiss chard and a little extra virgin olive oil to loosen up noodles.
Sprinkle with freshly grated parmesan cheese and enjoy!
