Our go-to when we have zero inspiration is this wonderful quinoa and chicken salad with homemade pesto. It can be varied in quantity and can be eaten both cold and hot. This is a meal that contains a mixture of the body's building blocks; fat, protein and carbohydrates and an extra boost of vitamin C and fiber from vegetables. The basis for hormones and a balanced menstrual cycle is to eat real and natural food.
Recipe quinoa and chicken salad with homemade pesto
Quinoa + broth (we love Renee Voltaries)
Chicken as desired.
For the salad you need:
organic spinach, tomato, red onion, avocado and nectarine for an extra festive touch + dry-roasted pumpkin seeds to top with.
Spices for chicken :
Honey, garlic spice, onion powder, chili flakes, thyme and herb salt.
Recipe for magical pesto
Mix 3-4 tablespoons of dry-roasted pumpkin seeds/sunflower seeds/nuts of your choice, 1 pot of basil (1-2 dl of basil) plenty of fresh or frozen basil, 1 clove of garlic, 1/2 dl of olive oil, 2 tablespoons of water, 3 tablespoons of grated parmesan as desired - mix! Add liquid if you want the pesto "looser".
Cook quinoa according to directions and add broth. Fry chicken and season with herb salt, garlic seasoning, chili flakes, honey, thyme. Dry roast the pumpkin seeds in a dry pan, until they take on color and start to "pop" salt in later for extra good taste! Then chop up vegetables and make pesto. When the quinoa and chicken are ready, you serve it on your salad, topped with the best pesto and the crunchy pumpkin seeds.
