Egg white and green apple salad (yum!)

First of all, my lack of posting is truly pitiful. I will try harder. First thing’s first – this delicious (and healthy!) recipe that my roomies and I particularly love.

Things you need:

– 6 eggs

– cucumber

– celery (optional)

– 1 avocado

– 1 green apple

– cottage cheese

– delicious spices such as paprika, Himalayan rock salts, black pepper, fresh cilantro, and cayenne pepper.

Let the cooking begin!

First, you need to hard boil 6 eggs. Once they are done you can cut them up and take out the yolks. If you’re feeling crazy, keep a couple of the yolks and throw them in the salad!

Next you can cut up all of your ingredients into bite size pieces. Once you’v done that, toss them all in a bowl. Add spices as you like. We put in quite a bit, we love a little kick! Also stir in the cottage cheese, I usually use one or two tablespoons.

Once it’s all tossed and ready to eat, you can choose how you would like it served. Between two slices of bread, or our low carb option – lettuce wraps.

That was easy! Enjoy!


Beet and potato salad (vegan!)

After biking 16 km today, I decided I needed a nice refreshing salad. I had some beets, potatoes, and other veggies I picked up at the market, so I thought a beet salad would be perfect!

It’s super hot outside and I needed something light and cool. Bonus: it’s vegan friendly, my favourite.

Me being the type who doesn’t really follow recipes…I just threw it together but it turned out great. Here’s what I did:

Boil 5 beets, 3 large carrots, and about 10 small red potatoes. Once they are cooked through, chop them up and put in a mixing bowl.

Chop up 3 pickles and some green onion. Add to the mix!

Time to add some spices and flavour.

I used paprika, pepper, himalayan sea salt, balsamic vinegar, olive oil, and lemon juice. A dash here and a dash there works, add as much or as little as you like. I’m not one for measuring when it comes to something like a salad.

For some spice, I also added one chili pepper. They are small but mighty!

Toss and put in the refrigerator to cool. Wait about 30-45 minutes, then enjoy!
