Fruit and meat: CONTROVERSY!!!

Dare I say it?

Well I just did. I’ve heard a lot of mixed views over fruit mixed with meat, I understand some people can’t stand the idea. Weird. I love fruit in a savory dish!!!

In an attempt to make a high protein lunch I made a chicken salad which included pineapple cottage cheese! It was rather marvelous, the sweet fruity punch with my tender moist chicken…a meal I’ll surely be repeating this week.

It simply consisted of:
chicken breast (cooked in oregano)
lettuce
pineapple cottage cheese
spicy chillies

High protein. Low fat. Just a shame I missed my morning gym session. Whoops!

A seemingly salad solution

Due to a hugely, epically, busy weekend I failed to order my food shopping on time. As a result I didn’t have any lunch planned for this week.

So I pondered through my fridge shelfs and found the following ingredients which all tossed together, turned out to be a pretty spiffing salad indeed!

Iceberg lettuce
– tomato
– sweet pepper
– pickled (by my very own grandad!!) sweet green beans
– pineapple
– avocado
– almond and date cous cous (leftovers)

Agreeably, it may sound an unlikely mix of ingredients but if like me you like fruit with savory, this salad will hit the spot.

Crunchy and sweet, I throughly enjoyed this lunch! Needless to say, it was easy and quick to prepare.

Light and tasty during these “food heavy” festivities

Last nights tea consisted of this tapas style salad. I have to admit, as the day drew on I though “salad? Why???” But damn it was delicious!

After days of copious food and alcohol this was just what I needed and it was utterly gorgeous. Featuring an additional oil and balsamic dip with ciabatta it made for a full meal, the buffalo mozzarella had to be the star!

Also, it takes but a few minutes to prepare….winner.
