Energizing Protein Power Salad

As my mom always says, Good things come to those who wait!

Because Eric was such a good sport about my April Fool’s Prank, I made him a batch of The Ultimate Oatmeal Raisin Cookie (with CHOCOLATE chips!) on Saturday. He claimed that he is ‘bringing every single cookie to work’ and he ‘just might eat all of them before lunchtime.’ ;)

Eric and Steve finished ripping up the top layer of the deck yesterday.

It’s naked!

I’m a bit sad seeing the deck go because I was really attached to it, rotting wood and all.

It was a lovely backdrop for rustic food photos… ;)

Eric’s foot actually fell through a rotted piece of wood yesterday! Thankfully he wasn’t hurt by it, but it gave him a bit of a scare because he had a hard time getting his foot out.

IMG_0064

For dinner, I made a huge batch of this protein-packed salad, with lots of leftovers for lunch this week!

I suggest cooking the beans/grains the night before to save some prep time. I used Buckwheat, speltberries, and red kidney beans in this recipe, but you can use pretty much any grain or bean that you prefer! Same goes for the veggies too.

After cooking the grains/beans, Mix together in a large bowl and set aside or place in fridge overnight.

IMG_3877

In a skillet, cook the garlic, onion, and veggies of your choice. I used yellow and red peppers.

IMG_3878

Mix the dressing together and the pour onto the veggie mixture in the skillet.

IMG_3882 IMG_3886

Add the veggie/dressing mixture to the grains & beans and mix well. I added in the raisins and almonds at this point too, but you can also add them directly into the skillet as the veggies cook.

IMG_3891

This salad is crunchy, chewy, soft, and just plain old fun to eat. The raisins are also a nice contrast to the tangy lemon-based dressing.

I cut down the oil by over 50% from the original recipe; if you prefer a dressing that isn’t as lemon-based, I suggest you replace some of the lemon juice with more olive oil. Next time I might even try a mixture of lemon juice and balsamic vinegar. Make sure to adjust the dressing to taste and you can even get creative by adding in some fresh herbs! 

IMG_3897

By the way, thanks to everyone who gave their input on chiropractors, physical therapists, osteopaths, RMT’s, etc! I had so many helpful comments to read. I think I’m going to try a RMT and possibly an osteopath (if necessary) as my first step with the sciatic nerve issue.

My doctor also gave me a bunch of stretches to do and told me to strengthen my CORE, so it looks like I’m going to have to whip out the plank monster again! Nooooooooo. ;) Anyone want to join me as I tackle the core work again? You can see this page for exercises I will be doing.

Looks awesome and spring-y!
I know you do yoga tapes, but is there a yoga class nearby you could attend? There are a few yoga poses that would help your siatic issues-plus plank for your core.

You don’t need to use wheat-berries; use as much gluten-free as possible!! Follow the recipes and utilize them as gluten free as possible, and you will end up with the healthiest recipe possible.

17 Laura @ Sprint 2 the Table April 4, 2011

The colors in this salad are gorgeous! I like that you reduced the oil. I bet it would be good drizzled with a balsamic reduction to help out the lemon-y taste.

I’m all about the core – I’d was doing the Whittle workout for a while and it really did help. The biggest difference I noticed was for sure from the planking.

What a beautiful salad! I bet it would be delicious with the balsamic + lemon juice combo, too!!

I’m sorry to hear about your sciatic nerve issue. I’ve had sciatic inflammation TWICE in the past 4 years, and it is no fun!! The first time around, my doctor gave me an anti-inflammatory drug that did the trick in a matter of 2 days… which I loved at the time. However, the second time it happened, I wanted to heal it more holistically, so I did pretty much every lower-back stretch possible, and cut-out all of my workouts except for walking. Even low-impact exercise on the elliptical made my sciatic pain worse, so walking was my only option! (unless you have a mini-rebounder, which also helped me!!) Since sitting and laying down are both not beneficial to healing, I walked, and walked, and walked as much as I could– and felt all better in about a week or so. Good luck getting better!! :D

Mmmm, I’ve made a similar version before with wheat berries, but adding in the beans definitely makes it even more complete. Interesting dressing combination; I love that there is no sweetener!

I really feel for you having sciatic pain, I had it a couple of years ago and had I went to a physio at a sports injury clinic who suggested an mri scan . That showed that one of my discs had broke off and had started to cakcify pressing down my sciatic nerve :( hope you get it sorted hun.
I do a lot of yoga now and that really helps sciatic problems and prevents them happening in the future
I am in for the core work… xx

Have you tried Pilates for core strength? I’ve been doing it for the past 2 years and it’s done wonders for my back and posture as well as sciatic pain. There’s also a class at my gym called body art that’s pilates with cardio — awesome! Those cookies look fab by the way!

Rustic photos are cool, but the new deck will be even better, lol. Why not save a board and chop it up to make a cutting board sized thing for pics? (Well, who wants to keep rotting boards? lol!)

55 Stacie April 4, 2011

Salad looks yummy! I have all the ingredients except the spelt berries. Do you think I could use a 1.5c of quinoa since I don’t have my spelt/wheatberries? I can’t believe how much work you guys have done on the deck?! You know the animals are talking in the woods about it ;)

Reply

56 Rachel (Ravenous Rae) April 4, 2011

I have issues with my sciatic nerve too! It was so bad at first it was hard to walk even just a little bit. Physical therapy w/ massage helped me a lot but I think overall for maintenance the best thing is yoga! I found 3 times a week is best for me and whenever they ask if there is anything I want to work on I always say hips because that works the sciatic area! I think the best pose is pigeon pose, but also sitting in easy seated pose and then leaning forward is a good stretch for the sacroiliac joint. I hope you get better soon!

I really need to work on strengthening my core too. I think it’s the weakest part of my body and even though I do a lot of yoga, I feel like my other muscles tend to compensate for my weak core. I feel like it’s been hindering me in some more difficult postures so I definitely want to make it stronger!

There was a really good article about core strengthening poses in the most recent issue of Yoga Journal– I can’t find it online but it you see it anywhere, you should check it out!

I saw this post and instantly ran to my kitchen to whip up a batch of “The Ultimate Oatmeal Raisin Cookie”! I couldn’t stop licking the dough off my fingers, and now my house smells like heaven. I can’t wait to sink my teeth into one of these with my sailorman when he gets home!

I did make a couple of modifications though:
1) I used raw goat milk instead of almond milk
2) I didn’t have 1 3/4C walnuts, so I used (rough estimates) 1/2C walnuts, 1C almonds, 1/4C cashews and 1/4C hazelnuts. Toasted and processed as well. SO YUMMY!
3) No chocolate chips, as per your original recipe.

I will be bringing some of these to work tonight for my co-workers. I can’t wait!

Hi Angela! First of all, thank you for your truly beautiful, awesome self that you share in your blog…I found it a few weeks ago and have been reading it religiously since then, and it is always a source of inspiration and grace. THANK YOU. Today is the first time I’m leaving a comment…just wanted to say I will be joining you with your core work, and those are some really effective exercises you have lined up. I have a half marathon in four weeks, and am truly intimidated by the thought of doing it. I’ve done marathons and halfs before, but I had surgery a few months ago that cut through my abs, so they’re pretty mushy right now and I get tired running for a long time. Knowing that you’ll be doing the core workouts, I’ll be more motivated to stick to mine, too. You go, Girl! (or…You GLOW, Girl!)

I looked up some nutritional information on quinoa and it says that it contains all of the amino acids and it relaxes blood vessels (should be great – I’ve been getting tension headaches every now and then and even last massage therapist mentioned how tight I was in the neck and shoulder area – oooh boy!) – plus it’s a good source of iron, copper and tryptophan (which is an essential mineral for easing stress and promoting relaxation and sleep)

that said, I am bookmarking this recipe! :)

My belly is kinda flabby so i’ve been doing 30-50 bum-lifts, (3 reps) and planks and hip-rolls plus a bit of yoga, pilates and concious posture exercises for a couple of weeks just to be able to bare my belly this summer without looking like the michelin-man…
I’m not aiming for the flat-abs, just a bit more humane and visually pleasing look…

Good job on the decking. you can get a really good sholder and back cardio-session out of nailing the new one in place… :)

I’m IN for the core work! I recently lost some weight with diet and aerobic exercise but I skipped out on the strength training.

This salad was the first one I’ve tried on Angela’s web-site! Tastes so good! We enjoy it each time I make it.

This is SO good and INCREDIBLY fast since I precooked the grains and used canned beans. Will most definitely be making this and variations of it a staple. Thanks so much for the recipe, lovely!
