What’s for dinner?

As previously mentioned on this blog, nutrition was never something that I knew a lot about. Though I still don’t know a ton, I am learning each and every day how to make smarter choices with my food. No longer am I someone who is going to eat a bowl of frosted flakes for dinner and call it a day.

In an effort to be more cognizant of the food that I am eating, particularly the food I am eating at night, I am going to start taking photos of it and sharing them on my blog so that I can have it to look back on for inspiration in future recipe planning. I’m going to title these all “What’s for dinner?”

Tonight is a ‘Quinoa-Kale Power Salad‘.

Ingredients include:

  • Kale
  • Spinach
  • Cherry Tomatoes
  • Red Pepper
  • Pecans
  • Craisins
  • Avocado
  • Cucumber
  • Quinoa
  • 1 cooked, cajun chicken breast
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinaigrette dressing

With respect to nutrition, portion sizes and amounts of food that one should intake per meal will differ from person to person. It’s completely individualized and there is no ‘one size fits all’ method. What may look like a lot to someone might look quite small to someone else. What is healthy to someone, and might be the right nutrients they need might not work for someone else.

I’m consistently learning more each day, and want to ensure that I am keeping track of what I do, how I change and what I make of this.
