Asian crispy beef salad

Beef, Jamie Oliver, Jamie's superfoods

If you want healthy, tasty and creative food, this dish is for you!

This recipe contains great ingredients and different techniques which make for a great tasting, interesting dinner.

I’ve never made “crispy” beef before but it was so easy to do and it’s so effective and it really added an extra element to make this dish shine.

I loved the citrusy sauce that coated the salad and the textures made it a joy to eat.

Just what I needed after a 90 minute gym session this morning!

A smoothie a day keeps the chub away

Breakfast

My thing right now is breakfast smoothies, in fact it’s been my “thing” for a few months now.

I make myself a beast of a shake and consume it after the gym, normally over the duration of a couple of hours. They are so filling they keep me hungerless until way after lunch time and they taste great to boot!

  
The mixture changes daily but basically consists of:

  • A flavored low fat yoghurt
  • Almond milk
  • Banana/avocado to thicken
  • Whey powder (currently cookies and cream)
  • Fruit/peanut butter/coffee/green leaves/anything really

They are honestly wonderful and the peanut butter ones really keep you going! Today I had mango and Passion fruit and it was a winner!

Protein POWER

Breakfast, Vegetarian

Often my post consist of healthy recipes but this is a lean, mean, protein punch post!

I’ve been having this (or a variation of this) every day for weeks now. So amazingly tasty, thick and filling. A must haveif your   working out.

  • 1 scoop of chocolate protein powder
  • 1 banana or half an avocado 
  • 4 tbsp of low fat yoghurt
  • Almond milk to crest desired consistency 
  • A blast of crushed ice (helps to thicken)

Seriously tasty.

My variation include adding frozen berries / peanut butter / flavored yoghurt / coffee

  

Coriander salmon….stupendous 🐟

Cook book, Fish, Food, Food general, Foodie, Kitchen

Monday nights dinner.

It needs to be healthy enough to start the week well but also needs to be tasty enough to satisfy my guttural feeding needs.

I motivated my self into a gym session after work yesterday which meant that by the time I was in the kitchen I was starving but didn’t want to destroy my calorie busting efforts!

On the menu…… Coriander salmon from Matt Dawson’s cookbook. The question however was do I add potatoes? The answer….no! I stuck with just the salmon and veg and although it was a terribly light meal, it was truly delicious and left me feeling good!

I also happened to cook the salmon with a crispy skin. Result!

Genuinely, this dish took less than 20 minutes to make and so if you are after a light, healthy week night tea. This should be on your menu!!!!
