Hey there 80’s classic I’m coming at you with both my wardrobe and my food right now. In terms of wardrobe there’s this pair of vintage jeans I own which are a stone grey with an elasticised waste, they’re sort of baggy and sit up high and I roll them up and sometimes wear them with platforms, a black silky cami and probably not a bra. They’re fantastic. Pretty much all men hate them, but I love them and that’s the part that matters. I also love Chicken Kiev and I’m bringing it back. Even if it’s only at my own table.
Whoop whoop it’s that time of the week again! Meal planning! Well for you it is… I am in Spain planning nothing but my next day trip. I even did your planning in advance so this little collection is ready to go today. I decided this holiday is all about me turning my brain off so most of these posts are written in advance. Such organisation! Now back to your life…
This is an easy and delicious salad that works just as well as a filling dinner as it does as an easy-to-batch-cook work lunch. The flavours and textures are great together plus the mixture of protein sources and complex carbs mean it’s super filling.
DUMPLINGS!!! Give me all the dumplings, always! If somebody wants to do a causal dinner, I’m always like “should we get dumplings?” because I want them always and will take any excuse to go out for them. That said I also love making my ow and these are all kinds of perfect. A delicate filling, delicious spicy broth and greens – this is a health food blog after all.
Often people don’t thinking of cooking chicken whole on the barbecue when they think of barbecue. And I don’t mean rotisserie style I mean right on the grill. It’s by far one of my favourite things to barbecue as it gives it so much flavour and such crispy skin. Cooking on the bone also helps prevent some of the dryness that you can get with grilled chicken.
This salad is all kinds of delicious! It’s light, has texture and all the flavour thanks to that satay like dressing. I love gently poaching chicken in coconut milk as it keeps the chicken flavoursome and juicy. No dry poached chicken in sight here! Just lean, healthy flavoursome food!
I love meals that only take one dish to make! Less cleaning up, more time for me. This dish is full of flavour and delicious ingredients. The stretchy golden mozzarella on top and the fresh basil are a classic for a reason.
We’re getting a little trashy today! Buffalo chicken for the win. I love love love spicy things and buffalo chicken wings are the bomb. But they’re also not great for you… So I’ve tried to lighten things up a little here with a baked, not fried version of them. And they’re not wings, because I figured they weren’t going to be easy to eat in a salad bowl and this is essentially a ridiculous chicken salad.
And it’s February! How’s the year going so far? Such an annoying question, because we all love to be reminded of how fast time passes don’t we? This week, for the majority of them, I’ve tried to make the recipes quick and easy to throw together after work. The whole making things easier for people when it comes to cooking healthier food is totally my vibe this year.
