New Year, New Healthy Cooking Ideas

With the new year, comes new inspiration, new resolve. Did your resolution have anything to do with living a healthier lifestyle? Me too. Healthier eating? Me too. Are you already tired? Like you, I'm busy with a full-time life but I want to eat well and not rely on unhealthy options just because I'm running behind. Because I'm not the most creative person in the kitchen, I turn to the internet for motivation. Healthy eating isn't difficult, but it does take preparation, consideration and discipline. To make life (cooking healthy) easier for you, here's an awesome healthy recipe that will make the whole family happy. Anna Chumbley, RD has a nutritionist's take on healthy cooking and a website full of delicious ideas!

Zucchini-Bowl-32-2-850x567.jpg

Ingredients

1/2 zucchini, spiraled into thin noodles or ribbons
1/4 cup red cabbage
1/4 cup petite baby carrots, thinly sliced
2 button mushrooms, thinly sliced
1 medium spring onion, sliced
2 teaspoons liquid aminos (or soy sauce/tamari)
1/2 teaspoon fresh ginger, minced
1 large egg, hard boiled
1 1/4 cups beef bone broth or stock

Preparation

1. In a wide mouth pint jar, add zucchini, red cabbage, carrots, mushrooms, and scallion, pushing down gently to make room for the egg. Add ginger, liquid aminos (soy sauce) and egg. Seal with lid.
2. When ready to eat, heat beef broth to boiling. Add to jar and cover with lid. Let set about 4 minutes. Pour into a bowl and serve!

Notes:
– If you don’t have a spiralizer, use a vegetable peeler to make the zucchini ribbons.
– For a spicy version add a few drops of your favorite hot sauce!
