Organic Salad Mix topped with Spicy Salmon

This is my favorite go to salad, super flavorful & filling.
1 Salmon steak per person
1/2 to 1 cup cooked Quinoa
1/2 onion (sliced)
2 Jalapenos (sliced)
Salad mix
1 Lemon
Salt & Pepper
Let's get started, cook about 1/2 (2 servings) to 1 cup (4 serving) of quinoa. Meanwhile season the individual portioned salmon steaks with salt & pepper, set aside. Slice 1/2 onion, 2 Jalapenos & in a medium sauté pan heat up a Tb of olive oil & cook for 4-5 minutes. Move onion and chilies to the outer edges of the pan, place salmon seasoned side down to brown. Remember to only flip once, cook about 5-6 minutes per side (or until desired readiness). Turn heat off. Now to assemble your salad... I used a combination of organic kale, spinach & Swiss chard salad mix, lay a bed of this on your plate, spoon on a good portion of quinoa (1/2 cup cooked) & top with a portion of salmon & the onion pepper mix. The dressing for this salad is very complicated.... Lemon wedges! Enjoy!

Mini flat bread Pizzas

Here's another great lunch idea for kids!! 


Thin (whole wheat) Sandwich rounds
Pizza sauce or (canned tomato sauce)
Mozzarella cheese (shredded)
Dried oregano 

Preheat your convention oven to 400
Break open a sandwich round & use one half per pizza. Spread on some pizza sauce, cheese, pepperoni's, oregano & Parmesan & bake until crispy. My girls devoured these! I'm not gonna lie, I only planned on having 2 pizzas ( 50 calories per half bread slice + toppings calories). But I may or may not have had more than 2. Anyhow, be creative with your toppings, I added onion, bell pepper & jalapeños to my pizzas!! Yumm! Can't wait to make this again!
