A Recipe for a Healthier Lunch

A Recipe for a Healthier Lunch

Those who want to save money and improve their diets can’t do better than brown-bagging their lunch.

Look for recipes that use fresh, whole ingredients and that combine protein with healthy carbohydrates. For example, the following recipe for Rio Star Grapefruit & Quinoa Salad combines vegetables and citrus fruit with quinoa, a whole grain that supplies a complete protein.

Quinoa, which is like couscous in texture, contains protein, iron, fiber and vitamin B6, while fresh grapefruit contains vitamins A and C. Look for Texas Rio Star Grapefruit, a red variety that’s especially sweet. When choosing grapefruit, pick one that feels heavy for its size – that means that it’s extra juicy.

Rio Star Grapefruit & Quinoa Salad
Makes Four Servings

1 Texas Rio Star Grapefruit, sectioned and peeled (reserve the peel)
1 Texas Orange, sectioned
8 thin slices fresh ginger
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
3/4 cup quinoa
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, plus additional for seasoning
1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
2 teaspoons honey
1 small serrano or jalapeno chile, minced
2 scallions, minced
2 carrots, peeled and diced
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro leaves
Freshly ground black pepper

1. Warm the grapefruit peel, ginger and olive oil in a small saucepan over medium heat. As soon as the oil starts to bubble, remove from heat. Set the oil aside to steep for 30 minutes. Strain and reserve the oil.

2. Meanwhile, rinse and drain the quinoa, and follow the package directions to cook. Transfer the quinoa to a bowl and fluff with a fork. Cool.

3. Segment the grapefruit over a bowl, reserving the segments and juice separately. Whisk 3 tablespoons of the grapefruit juice with the vinegar, honey and salt to taste in a medium bowl. Gradually whisk in 3 tablespoons of the reserved grapefruit oil, starting with a few drops and then adding the rest in a stream to make a slightly thick dressing. Season with pepper to taste.

4. Toss the quinoa with the dressing, chiles, scallions, carrots and cilantro. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.

5. Toss the grapefruit segment into the salad, divide among four plates. Serve warm or at room temperature.

6. Serving sestion: This salad makes a great packed lunch. If you want to serve this salad at dinner, try it with grilled salmon.

Day 16 - East African Braised Chicken

Day 16 - East African Braised Chicken

Made dinner for my mom and dad tonight... This easy to make chicken "stew" is incredibly delicious, full of spicy aromatic flavors. The cool tang of the yogurt on top sets it off perfectly. Just scoop it up with some pita bread and you're good to go!


2 lb chicken breast (cut up into 1-inch chunks)
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
1 Tbsp olive oil
3 cup sliced onion
1 cup sliced red pepper (or a mix of green, red and yellow)
1 Tbsp chopped peeled fresh ginger (or 1 tsp of ground ginger)
1 tsp curry powder
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground cardamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp ground red pepper
2 large garlic clove, thinly sliced
1/2 cup low-sodium chicken broth
1/2 cup dry white wine
1/2 cup orange juice
3 Tbsp chopped pitted dates
3 Tbsp golden raisins


Preheat oven to 350°F

Sprinkle chicken with salt and black pepper. Heat oil in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add chicken; cook 4 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Remove the chicken from pan.

Add the onion and red bell pepper to pan; reduce heat to medium-low, and cook for 10 minutes, stirring frequently. (Scrape up all the chicken bits stuck to the bottom to add lots of flavor!)

Add the ginger and next 5 ingredients (ginger through garlic); cook for 1 minute. Stir in chicken, broth, wine and the remaining ingredients, and bring to a boil.

Cover and bake at 350°F for 1 hour (or cover and simmer on stove top for 1 hour).

Serve with plain yogurt, and flatbread or couscous.
