Gabrielle Reece: Living in Hawaii there is a lot of fresh fish so I cook a lot of fish and sometimes there are left overs, although fish is sometimes fishy to me and I sometimes don't like it. I really enjoy making tuna with real fish that is the leftover from the night before. All I do is put a dab of relish and red onion on it. I find it very satisfying because of the good fats in the fish.
I like sushi but just try to minimize the rice or get rolls so it gives me energy. I try to avoid too much white rice but most places now even have brown rice sushi.
Or, I will take goat feta cheese and turkey meat and put those together with maybe some avocado.
Another good one is gluten free bread toasted, with mashed avocado with turkey or chicken meat on top. Or if you are vegetarian, the avocado has really good fats which also fill you up. I find people don't eat enough good fats so they are perpetually hungry. I am really careful to get enough of the good fats because then I know it will help me to not over-eat.
Gabrielle Reilly: Great. I think my favorite quick snack or lunch is Ezekiel bread. have you tried it?
Gabrielle Reece: Oh, absolutely.
Gabrielle Reilly: So I just toast it and put smoked salmon on top with baby spinach.
Gabrielle Reece: Oh yeah, great!
Gabrielle Reilly: Have you tried the quinoa pasta? I know you're a big advocate of quinoa.
Gabrielle Reece: Yeah I have. In fact on my website you will see that I made quinoa pasta lasagna. I used the spaghetti quinoa noodles really tightly packed to make the layer. It is very hard to find gluten free lasagna sheets so that is why I used the quinoa spaghetti. I am a big fan of that. I find the texture to be even better than the brown rice pasta.
Gabrielle Reilly: Yes, in fact my kids and I prefer it to normal pasta and it comes in such a range of products. For our readers, the brand I get is Ancient Harvest . You can find it in the health food section of many different supermarkets but if you can't find it in one store, try another store.
Gabrielle Reece: Yes, elbows and such.
Gabrielle Reilly: It is always nice to get kids to acquire a taste to very healthy food.
Gabrielle Reece: That's right.
Gabrielle Reilly: Thanks again Gabby. Stayed tuned for next weeks interview on healthy food ideas and philosophies for children.
