Curried Zucchini and Couscous and How I get My Energy!

Hi everyone! Sorry for my absence but school started, we had a Parents Who Rock gig, we”re getting ready for a Bat Mitzvah and I have , oh, about 10 thousand things on my plate including the interview I did on a CA radio station this week-fun! Check it out!

In a comment on the last post I did, Elizabeth asks how I have so much energy and if it is from the quinoa I eat or my jumping rope?

The truth is a little of both, but mostly that I make a point of surrounding myself with positive people who inspire me to keep learning and growing.

Like today, I watched a great parenting video with my friend Rachael called 123 Magic. Then, (even though I was supposed to be working), I went to my friend Jacquie Ruderman’s Yoga class at Jaipur yoga studios, a new studio in my town of Montclair. Both of these activities were JUST what I needed to reboot after such a stressful week. I am now re-energized to cook! Thank you, special ladies!!

What helps you reboot so you can accomplish your goals?

Here’s what I did with my new found energy-I cooked a healthy meal with a zucchini that I actually GREW MYSELF!!!! Enjoy!

Curried Zucchini and Couscous:
1 1/2 cups cooked couscous (can use leftover cooked rice, quinoa or other grain)
2 medium sized zucchinis cut into 1/4″ dice
1/2 medium onion, chopped
1/2 red pepper, seeded and chopped
2 tsp olive oil
1 tsp salt
2 tsp curry powder
1/4 tsp ground black pepper
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper

In a medium sized saute pan, heat up olive oil
Add in peppers and onions and stir for a few minutes
Add in the zucchini and stir
Add in the salt and spices and stir a few minutes until heated through
Add in cooked couscous, stir until combined and serve

  1. I just made this recipe, and added chick peas for extra protein. Delicious results, and quite easy to make! Thanks, Alma!
