I like to eat with a purpose. Do you know what my purpose is? I will tell you. I like to eat food that has a variety of taste, provides energy, is simple to make and doesn’t leave me bloated. The other day I came home from work and was a little tired. I didn’t want to spend hours in the kitchen and I wanted to make something simple and healthy. I looked in my cabinet and pulled out some Olive Oil and Garlic Salt. I went into my fridge and noticed I had soaked some Green Organic Split Peas the night before. I wasn’t sure what I was going to do with them and just decided to be creative. The dish I came up with is high in fiber, high in iron and high in magnesium. It’s perfect for slimming down your tummy if you’re feeling bloated from eating any meats or high salty foods. I thought….why not share it with all of you. It’s cheap to make and I know you will love it!
GREEN SPLIT PEA MEDLEY
1 cup of organic green split peas
1 tablespoon of organic olive oil
1 quarter of white organic onion chopped
4 small organic mushrooms chopped
1 small Roma Tomato chopped
1/2 cup of organic cilantro chopped
1 cup of organic spinach
1/2 organic lime squeezed
1/2 teaspoon of organic garlic salt
4-6 drops of sriracha sauce
1 ounce of organic feta
Be sure to soak your peas the night before in a small bowl with filtered water. Pull out your onion, mushrooms, tomato, cilantro and spinach. Wash and dry all your veggies. Chop onion, mushrooms, tomato and cilantro into small pieces. Heat a medium pan with olive oil on medium high. Once pan is heated, place onions and mushrooms into pan. Mix into olive oil and reduce heat to medium. Add in your cup of peas, tomato, cilantro and spinach. Mix altogether for about a minute. Add in your fresh squeezed lime and garlic salt. Cook for 2-3 minutes and shut stove off. Place food on a nice plate and decorate with Sriracha Sauce and Organic Feta Cheese. Serve right away. Dish may be eaten cold as well for the following day. You may take this dish to work and put it over a bed of romaine lettuce without having to heat it again.
Purpose of dish:
This dish is great for anyone who needs to increase their fiber intake. One serving of Green Split Peas has 26 grams of fiber. That’s enough to satisfy most of your daily fiber for the whole day. It also has 25 grams of protein. Wow! I think you should go buy Green Split Peas. If you’re feeling fatigued and have low energy, this dish can help you. Remember…eat with a PURPOSE!
