Use the recipe HERE with a side of honey carrots!; the simplest, and my favourite, way to cook carrots.

Dessert – Sweet Yogurt

Once you are out of your home made treat (or are just over it and need something different),  try some of your Greek yogurt with honey, cinnamon and banana; one of my favourites. Keep cinnamon in mind as it is a great natural sweetener and has some SURPRISING HEALTH BENEFITS.

For the chicken: I used THIS recipe but replaced the wine with extra HOME MADE CHICKEN STOCK and replaced the milk with HOME MADE ALMOND MILK.

Although i love quinoa i do find it a little bland, i like to make my a little bit zesty….

For the Quinoa: heat 1 Tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil in a deep pot. Add 1/4 cup chopped onion; stirring frequently for 5 minutes, until the onion is soft. Add 1 clove chopped garlic, 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin, a pinch of salt, 1/2 lime; juiced and zested and 1/2 cup uncooked quinoa. Cook for a minute or so until garlic and cumin is fragrant. Add 1 cup of water. Bring to a boil (if it isn’t already), then turn the heat to medium-low and let it simmer gently for 12-15 minutes or until all of the liquid has been absorbed. Remove from heat, stir in 1/2 cup loosely packed fresh cilantro and let it sit, covered, for 5 minutes.

Dessert – Flourless Banana Bread

Clean Eating For Bimbo’s – Day 2

Breakfast  – Kale milk smoothie

IMG_6587

As i was saying, KALE is an amazing source of antioxidants and very high in protein, although it is very strong in taste and a little bitter. This smoothie is full of sweet sweet pineapple to even it out.

Mix 1 cup almond milk (if you are feeling up to it you can make your own like i did HERE), 1 cup kale, 1/2 cup pineapple juice, 1/2 cup diced pineapple, 1 banana and blend. I added  1 T FLAXSEED which is a source of OMEGA 3 and  great for those who don’t eat a lot of fish. Makes 2 medium size glasses  or one very large.

Snack – Home Made Muesli Bar

lamb

Sweet Potato: Cut half a large sweet potato into thin slices like chips, coat in a dash of Extra Virgin olive oil, salt and pepper, 1/2 teaspoon of turmeric, 1/2 teaspoon coriander, 1 teaspoon of parsley and lay flat in baking pan. Cook for 10-15 minutes turning to crisp both sides.

Lamb: Pretty easy this one; Put 1/2 cup of almonds in the food processor with 1 clove of garlic, shaved parmesan and freshly ground salt & pepper (If you made your own Almond milk like i did you can use the leftover dried out processed almonds as almond meal (See day 1) Dip 4 lamb chops in 1 egg white before crumbing in crushed almond mixture. When sweet potato is almost ready, cook lamb in an oiled pan for 5-10 mins until golden brown.

Best meal you ever ate.
