Recipes Please!

My unemployment lack of focus continues.

I wonder if the key is imposing a routine, even though there definitely does not have to be one. I also just desperately need to go grocery shopping. I might enlist a friend here to help me make cheap, healthy and delicious options.


A request! Do you have any delicious recipes that are healthy with relatively inexpensive ingredients? Please share. I'd love some inspiration for some good foods I can cook and just keep around the house. Your support is always great.

In exchange I will give you one of my current favorite recipes. It's from Epicurious and just too delicious for words. I make up a big vat of it and have just been munching on it all week. I've done this for the past two weeks which is the only reason I am appealing to you to help me branch away from this amazingly tasty dish.


Here's a picture of my finished product:

I went to a yoga class last week and though I am still in pain from all the beautiful muscles I'm forming, I think I'm going to go today so I'm making a little impromptu protein-filled lunch. I was inspired by this recipe here: http://www.articledashboard.com/Article/Quinoa---Egg-Breakfast/1262469
I'm making quinoa but I threw in a bunch of red pepper flakes and some lemon juice, and then I think I will cut up some chicken sausage to mix in with the quinoa and fry an egg to throw on top. Serve with Sriracha if the red pepper flakes weren't enough zing. Yoga lunch of champions? Maybe. I'll keep you posted! Here is the final product. Delish!

But yes, recipes please! Send me your cheap, healthy, beyond tasty recipes.


  1. I was looking for quinoa recipes yesterday and found this one, which looks good: http://allrecipes.com/recipe/quinoa-with-chickpeas-and-tomatoes/detail.aspx.

    Also, I made a tasty vegan wrap for lunch today. Chopped red cabbage, red onion, cucumber, tomato, avocado, and spinach in a tomato-basil wrap spread with vegan fake cream cheese. Pretty good. The recipe also called for sprouts, which I left out.

  2. I, too, am in pain from the beautiful muscles you're forming. Sympathy pains of joy.

    This recipe is perfect for hot summer days! It has an indulgent feel to it, but it is so healthy and will leave you so satisfied.
