August 13, 2015

 

From a summertime snack, to a savory entree and a guiltless sweet, here are some great recipes that are not only delicious, but also great for sticking to a healthy diet suitable for your MS!

Cucumber & Avocado Rolls

Forget pigs in a blanket, these delicious small bites are great for when you have company over, when you’re craving a snack and perfect for your MS diet. These healthy bites are crunchy, cool, and overall great for the summer season.

The good fats in avocado helps to absorb Vitamin A from the cucumber and Vitamin E from the avocado, since these are both soluble vitamins in which your body definitely needs. The recipe calls for a few basic ingredients like the cucumber and avocados of course, capers, parsley, dill, lemon juice and salt and pepper. All good things to be feeding your body.

Tilapia Tacos

Fish is a wonderful protein to add to your MS diet. While tilapia itself is a leaner fish, it does contain those great Omega-3 fatty acids. 

All you need for this filling meal are some tilapia fillets, a pack of whole grain tortillas and a container of mango salsa that you can purchase from Whole Foods, or create one of your own if you prefer. The mango salsa’s ingredients include mangos, red onion, cilantro and minced jalapeno.

Feel free to add some variety to this dish as well. If you don’t particularly like the idea of mango salsa, add other healthy ingredients like avocado, peppers, onions and spice to your own taste.

Gluten & Sugar Free Chia Seed Biscotti

These deliciously satisfying deserts are filled with calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, potassium, iron, zinc and copper, which is a result of the added superfood, chia seeds.

In order to make this almond packed sweet and keep it healthy for your diet, it must be baked in a low temperature of 210F (100C) because all the good fats almonds are known for will otherwise denature at high temperatures. If the almonds do denature, they will give you all those undesirable fats which then causes bloating and gas.  

Another great thing is that you won’t need too many ingredients—this treat calls for almond flour, chopped almonds, corn flour, maple syrup, chia seeds and a pinch of salt!

The best part is that you don’t have to even feel guilty about indulging in this lovely desert, it’s great for you!
