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.
Happy Sunday folks! I plan on having a day of getting shit done, as balancing full time work and the whole ‘Healthy Hunter’ thing is well, a balancing act. See, my brain is fried. I’m also busy getting holiday prep sorted so I can have a real adventure and not be continuously checking this little blog. Need to learn to let go a little. I have been busily prepping the most delicious of meal plans for you this week. There’s loads of simple week night dinners in both the Vegetarian and Non vegetarian plans. I’ve also thrown in a little something that involves a slight time commitment in each one too. Because challenge helps us grow.
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!
My new thing is using curry pastes and a little stock or coconut cream to create the flavour and sauce. It’s so quick and easy and packs a huge flavour punch! You can make your own paste and freeze in portions or keep in the fridge if you plan on using it quickly, or just buy one. So many options to make your life tasty, healthy and easy.
Hello Sunday!!! It’s time to relax, potter, adventure and maybe do a little planning for the week ahead. This week I’ve got two delicious meal plans for you as per usual. One vegetarian, one for the omnivores. There’s a variety of flavour, from the spicy to the mild and from the trashy (buffalo chicken say what?!) to the slightly unusual (can I call it a meatball when there’s no meat in it???). I hope you love the plans!
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.
One day I’m eating like a vegan and the next it’s time for some meat. I basically like to eat everything. I also love that bolognese is such a good vehicle for getting some extra vegetables into a pasta dish. This rendition takes it one step further and uses ribbons of zucchini instead of pasta. Thus, it’s a low carb meal full of vegetables and lean protein – win!
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.
