Washington Redskins Cheerleader Alyssa shares one of her go-to recipes with WOW!
Hey Women of Washington Redskins!
Well, we all know its that time of year: were getting up early to hit the gym, counting calories, and just taking extra steps to make up for those holiday feasts. The bottom line is; we strive to make changes in our lifestyle to ensure a healthier, HAPPIER new year.
For my New Years resolution, when Im not training in the studio, Ive rejuvenated my passion for cooking and definitely made a greater effort to cook well-balanced meals. However, as we all know, its not always easy finding time between family, work, and the rest of lifes busy moments to prepare a square meal.
Heres a great recipe for Greek Orzo Salad that I love to whip up when Im on a time crunch. I usually have enough for left-overs which can be wrapped in a whole wheat tortilla with a spread of my favorite Cava Tzatziki. So heres to a fantastic new year and a new, healthier you!
Greek Orzo Salad
1 bag baby spinach
1 c. orzo
1 yellow pepper
1 orange pepper
1 c. feta cheese
Olive oil, salt, pepper, basil, and oregano (to taste)
1. Dice tomato, yellow pepper, and orange pepper. Toss evenly into spinach with black olives.
2. Bring a pot of water to a boil and add orzo. Cook for 8-10 minutes and drain.
3. Add warm orzo and feta cheese to salad and toss evenly.
4. Drizzle olive oil
5. Add salt, pepper, basil, and oregano
It's our turn.
