Creative Cooking, part 2

I love the blog, Alimental. Hannah has this way of photographing simple, healthy food to make it look absolutely scrumptious. Today, I’m following her lead. I’m finding the trick is to take time to get the photograph before the meal is devoured. 🙂

Lunch: tomatoes, cucumbers, radishes, multicolored peppers, avocado for some good fats sesame-honey almonds for protein, and strawberries for dessert. The only dressing was a sprinkle of sea salt.

Dinner: a stir fry of stew meat and every vegetable I could find

Both were completely delicious!

Today, I had a craving for something fresh. Since I had a few minutes, I headed to Whole Foods and did a whirlwind trip: two packages of grass-fed stew meat, a bag of multicolored new organic potatoes. organic asparagus, an organic eggplant, a red onion, mushrooms, and a handful of green olives.

Once home, I browned the meat in olive oil, red wine, salt and pepper. I added multicolored bell peppers and garlic to my list of ingredients. As the potatoes steamed, I sauteed the other vegetables. Finally, I tossed all of it together, added several diced olives for some added flavor, and served with Romano cheese.

I’d post a picture of it properly dressed for serving, but it’s gone! 🙂
