What to eat instead of sandwich or wrap.

Sesame Israeli couscous with 🌶 🍈🥒

Thinking what to cook for lunch? Tired of having a sandwich or a pie? What if we use this ingredient (Israeli couscous) instead of bread. I cook the Israeli couscous the same as I do when I make rice. 🍵1 cup of israeli couscous – 🍵🍵2 cups of water. Put this ingredients together in the rice cooker and is done. It takes less than 20 mins and is very delicious. Then add your favourite vegetables.
👉🏻Israeli couscous is a type of toasted pasta shaped like rice grains, it was developed in Israel in the 1950’s when rice was scarse.

💥high in Selenium , just 1 cup (157 grams) of couscous contains more than 60% of the recomended intake.
Selenium is an antioxidant that helps your body repair damaged cells and decreases inflamation. It also plays a role in tyroid health, protecting against damage and contributing to hormone production.
💥Lower the risk of heart disease by reducing inflamation and oxidative stress in your body.
💥May help lower cancer risk.
💥Boost your immune system , reduce inflamation and boost immunity by lowering oxidative stress in your body.
Good source of plant based protein , it provides 7grams of protein per cup
Diets high in plant based protein have been linked to a lower risk of stroke , cancer and heart disease.
It is important to consider people with gluten intolerance. Israeli couscous contains gluten so it wont be good option for those with these restrictions.

I am passionate about food and nutrition. Originally from Bogota -Colombia currently living in New Zealand. I am a Nutritionist & Dietitian. After becoming a mum and working in different areas like education, banking and sales, I came to the realisation that I wanted to come back to what I loved and what I have passion for this is Health and Nutrition. In September 2016 I started my online course with the biggest nutrition school in America called Institute of Integrative Nutrition( IIN). The Institute of Integrative Nutrition has given me the knowledge and support about Nutrition in a Holistic way. I have never thought that this would be possible, but after a year I realised that definitely secondary food (food that is on the plate) is part of the puzzle of health and happiness. There is something called primary food which are the pillars that together contribute to a better wellbeing and a better nutrition. Relationships, spirituality, career and exercise plus a having good sleep habits can contribute to a better YOU. I am a Holistic Nutritionist and I am looking forward to taking you on this journey of better habits and a prosperous life. Always smile with gratitude! Thank you for taking the time to read this and I hope you get to know me. AndreaP
