Re-Pepp Yourself

I’m over-the-moon to report that the Gent and I settled on a location for Memorial Day weekend! Drumroll please….Grand Cayman! This has been on my bucket list for basically ever and we are headed there for the long weekend to test drive the first new resort to the island in a decade, the gorgeous Kimpton Seafire. I’ve basically been willing myself not to eat pasta and starting at photos of the resort all week. It’s pretty easy on the eyes….

This is just the inspiration needed to undo the last six months of over indulging on life…that can all be undone in two months, right? Well, I’m gonna give it a go…

So! That  means more healthy recipes, starting with this gorgeous Buddha bowl I made. It’s pretty straightforward. Start with a layer of spinach, add some quinoa, cucumber, roasted onions, spicy chickpeas, low-fat feta, and the most amazing, easiest protein-packed red pepper coulis that I’ve made twice this week.

Seriously, it’s good on everything from this salad, to chicken, to eggs. This is a new condiment staple surely to stay in the front of the fridge.

Just look at all that protein-y goodness! I already can’t wait for lunch. I could eat this meal every damn day so you might as well try it, too. The recipe comes from Pinch of Yum.

Red Pepper Coulis

  • 16oz. jar of roasted red peppers, liquid drained. – you can roast your own, but have you done that? the peeling of the skin? it’s terrible.
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • Juice of one lemon
  • 1/2 c. olive oil
  • 1/2 sliced almonds
  1. Dump all ingredients in a food processor.
  2. Pulse until mostly smooth.

THAT’S IT. YOU’RE DONE! So tasty and so impressive. MAKE THIS NOW. REPORT BACK IMMEDIATELY. K? Thanks. Oh and send recommendations for Grand Cayman if you’ve got them. 🙂
