M-J’s Low-Carb Luncheon Salad

M-J’S LOW-CARB, HIGH PROTEIN LUNCHEON SALAD

Bacon bits, 1/3 cup of shredded Parmesan cheese, an avocado cut into pieces, Romaine lettuce and almond-coated white-meat chicken combine to make an elegant, high-protein luncheon dish.

I top this low-carb salad with home-made ranch dressing, which I create from mayonnaise, buttermilk, and/or sour cream, mixed with onion and garlic powders and dried parsley. When I don’t have the powdered onion and garlic, I will dice bits of fresh ones very fine and sauté them before mixing with the other ingredients. Add salt and green or white pepper to taste, then blend with a wire whisk.

ELEGANT MACROBIOTICS, M-J’S NEW PAGE FEATURES SIMPLE ORGANIC DISHES,  LIKE THIS VEGETABLE STIR-FRY

These simple vegetables accompany brown rice for a sumptuous, health-promoting luncheon dish.The best oils to use for cooking in a macrobiotic regimen are safflower, refined (not  toasted) sesame (by Spectrum) and sunflower oils. Organic, short-grain brown rice is easy to store as a dietary staple. It may be time to concentrate your survival food-storage efforts on things like this that do not require refrigeration. You can use a small barbecue grill to boil rice and sauté vegetables, so keeping a high supply of charcoal briquets is a good idea.©M-J de Mesterton

Mini-Tacos with Avocado Salad

Taco seasoning by Tone’s, chopped tomatoes, onion, celery, yellow capsicum (a sweet pepper), New Mexico red chile gravy, and ground beef, cooked together about an hour and mixed until very fine, makes a perfect taco filling in combination with grated mild cheese.
Miniature tacos are made with sautéed Guerrero corn tortillas, which are filled with a ground-beef-vegetable mixture and colby jack cheese. The bowl contains shredded Romaine lettuce and small strips of avocado, dressed with lime juice, cilantro (coriander leaf) and salt.

Elegant Miso Soup

A quick and nutritious miso soup can be made in less than five minutes. I chop some ready-to-eat spinach, celery, parsley and any other vegetable that is available, put it in a bowl with a tablespoon of miso and a cup or more of water, and boil on the stove or heat it in the microwave for a couple of minutes. The vegetables will retain their flavour and texture, and the miso provides health-promoting and cancer-prevention qualities to the soup.
