Garlic Scallops

Garlic Scallops 

This recipe is so fast to prepare and delicious.  It a combined effort between myself and new friend, Kristi.  Kristi shared her recipe on my 21-Day Fix Challenge Group and of course I tweaked a bit.  So thanks, Kristi, for giving me something new to play with.  Remember recipes are just guides – you can adjust to your likes.

  1. 1lb of scallops
  2. 3 fresh garlic cloves, pressed
  3. 2-3 Tbsp of grated fresh ginger
  4. Salt and Pepper
  5. Coconut Oil
  6. Carrots
  7. Broccoli
  8. Mushrooms
  9. Green Onions
  10. Tamari Sauce
  11. Fresh Cilantro
  12. Tapitio Sauce, if desired
  1. Heat skillet with 2 tsps of coconut oil over medium heat.
  2. Add scallops and cook for 2 minutes.
  3. Flip over and add ½ of the garlic, ginger, salt and pepper
  4. You want the scallops to be translucent but have slight browning. Do not overcook - they get rubbery.
  5. Remove scallops and place in bowl, cover with foil.
  6. Deglaze the pan with a little water. This will remove all the flavor that is adhered to the pan plus make the pan much easier to clean. Let the water almost evaporate. Add in another 2 tsp of coconut oil.
  7. Add in the broccoli and carrots and cook until they brighten in color. Now add the mushrooms. Add a little water if necessary. Vegetables should still have a little crunch to them but be tender.
  8. Splash with a little tamari sauce. Mix into vegetables.
  9. Add the scallops back in and heat.
  10. To serve – plate and add some sliced green onions and chopped cilantro on top. You can also add in a little tapatio sauce.

Coconut Quinoa Breakfast Porridge

This recipe is not my own but from a cookbook titled The Elimination Diet 

Coconut-Quinoa Breakfast Porridge

It is a wonderful way to use quinoa and can be placed in individual portion controlled containers and frozen.  Top with a little almond milk, stevia and raw sunflower or hemp seeds for a yummy breakfast or snack.

Asian Breakfast Bowl

This is a great change of pace for breakfast.  It has protein, healthy carbohydrate, vegetables and spices.   

Asian Breakfast Bowl - plated

It goes together very quickly with precooked rice.  I use the frozen boxed brown rice from Trader Joe’s.  Of course you can always cook a pot of regular brown rice.  

You can also use the rice as is or cook in a little coconut oil for a fried rice version.

  10. Slices of lime
  1. Cook egg(s) in 1 tsp of coconut oil any way you enjoy them.

  3. Place brown rice, carrot, scallion, celery, ground ginger and tamari sauce together in a bowl. (Note - if you'd like a fried rice version. Stir fry rice in a tsp of coconut oil in a skillet or wok for several minutes until rice crisps up. Then add the vegetables (minus the spinach) and spices.)
  4. To plate - Place 1/3 of wilted spinach in bottom of the bowl. Then add 1/3 of rice/vegetable mixture. Top with egg(s).
  5. Squeeze with a wedge or two of lime, if desired
  6. Enjoy.
