Chipotle Chicken Kabobs with an Avocado Cream Sauce

Originally posted on anticsincooking:

This recipe came from one of my favorite food blogs to read, Annie’s Eats. She has so many great recipes, this being one of my favorites, and I can say we have tried quite a few of them.

It is a simple meal to put together, and besides a little bit of marinating time for the chicken, it whips together pretty fast on a grill due to the small pieces of chicken. And whatever you do, do not forego the Avocado Cream Sauce! It is super easy and super delicious! We make this sauce pretty much anytime we make Mexican food now, whether fajitas, quesadillas, tacos, etc. It is my wife’s favorite dip.

Dip

The oh-so-good dip!

Plate

We generally serve the chicken with a cilantro-lime rice, but it would be good with refried beans as well.

Enjoy!

Wheat bran Halwa/Porridge

Originally posted on Chitra's Healthy Kitchen:

Halwa final

About:

This halwa can be made instantly whenever you feel like having some sweets. This dish is not much on sweet and fat. I know wheat bran is not tasty by itself but adding it in sweet makes it tastier and fiber rich.

Health Benefits:

Most grains, like wheat and oats, have a hard outer layer. When they are processed, this layer becomes a byproduct, and is called bran. In the case of processing wheat to make wheat flour, one gets miller’s or wheat bran. Wheat bran is packed with nutrition, and offers many dietary benefits.

Serves: 2-3
Preparation time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 20-30 minutes

Make Your Own Acai Bowl

Originally posted on KatieHartMorse:

I LOVE acaí bowls. I remember having my first one when I got to San Diego. I had never heard of them before, but fell in love instantly. They are refreshing and filling and healthy (well as long as you don’t put a ton of peanut butter and chocolate in it). Anyway, I wanted to start making them at home, because well, I don’t only want to be able to have one of my favorite things when I eat out. And I wanted to be able to put what I want in it.

make your own acai bowl

First, how is the word “acai” pronounced – aah-sai-eee

I said this wrong and was corrected multiple times when I first moved to San Diego, until I finally caught on. :) So, don’t feel bad if you have been saying it wrong.

Next – I needed to track down where to buy frozen acai packets. I know

There is so much nutritional information about sweet potato, and purple sweet potatoes, that it is hard to list all the benefits.
They are anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, they yield amazingly high amounts of vitamin A and C, help in guarding the digestive system from heavy metals.
Steamed with just a little butter or EVO is a delicious way to prepare them because the fat aids in the uptake of Vitamin A.

Recipe for my Fuchsia Juice

1 lg purple sweet potato
2 carrots
3 ribs celery
1 cup diced butternut squash
2 small green apples
1 inch ginger
