Everything starts with love within

My journey to be fit, and healthy.

Please note I do not promote "skinny" "thinspo" or any of that shit. I believe in being comfortable in your own skin. and if you want to make a change please do it in a healthy way.

I do not take credit for any recipes. Unless I did.

I HAVE WAITED SO LONG FOR THIS GIF SET

I JUST SAW THIS MOVIE, AND I WISHED FOR THIS GIF SET TO POP OP AGAIN!!! AND NOW IT’S HERE!!!!

I began to realize how important it was to be an enthusiast in life. If you are interested in something, no matter what it is, go at it full speed ahead. Embrace it with both arms, hug it, love it and above all become passionate about it. Lukewarm is no good.

Kale & Quinoa Patties

Kale and Quinoa Patties

Makes 12 Patties

1 cup quinoa

5-6 large kale leaves

4 large eggs, beaten

1/2 cup fat free grated parmesan cheese

small white onion (or about 3 spring onions for milder taste), diced

3 cloves garlic

1 tsp salt

1 tsp cumin

1/4 cup chopped cilantro or parsley (plus more for serving)

1/2 lemon (both the zest and juice)

1 cup panko breadcrumbs

6 tbsp safflower or vegetable oil (divided, plus more for serving)

avocado

Rinse quinoaand then combine it in a medium saucepan with two cups water. Let it soak for about 15 minutes, bring it to a boil then reduce to a simmer and put the top on the pan. Simmer for 20 minutes, remove the lid, fluff with a fork and let come to room temp. Steam kale leaves for about 30 seconds, just to soften a little then chop into small pieces. In a large bowl combine the cooked quinoa, the kale pieces, eggs, parmesan cheese, onion, garlic, salt, cumin, cilantro or parsley, the zest from 1/2 a lemon and the panko.  Use your hands to combine well. Heat 3 tbsp of the oilover medium heat in a high sided skillet. While that’s heating up, form your patties… I use an ice cream scoop for uniformity and it makes exactly 12 patties. Cook six patties at a time, so as not to crowd the pan. Cook on each side for about 5 minutes until golden brown and then put those six in an oven on a cooling rack on a baking sheet then turn the oven to 200 degrees to keep hot while you make the next six patties. Dump out any remaining oil from the first batch and re-heat 3 more tbsp before making the second batch. Serve the patties topped with avocado slices, sea salt, cilantro or parsley leaves, a squeeze of lemon juice and a drizzle of olive oil.
