I love taking a naughty meal and finding a clean and healthy way to cook it instead. This delicious chicken makes a simple stir-fry full of flavour and beats any take-away meal. Make some gyoza, or lemon chicken too and you’ve got a home-made healthy and clean Chinese Fakeaway!
A bold statement: I will never buy lemon chicken in again. It is one of my favourite treat meals, but often I avoid it because of all the sugar, added chemicals and unknown levels of salt and oil being used – better sometimes to err on the side of caution. The other week I had… Continue reading Clean lemon chicken “fakeaway”
This is a great – and quick – clean meal. The creamed spinach can be made up as a side dish on its own, or you can use it to create healthy stuffed chicken for a post-workout protein rich meal.
I love gyoza! Whenever I go for Japanese these are first on the menu, and I’m absolutely into a bit of a dimsum blow out once in a while. Teeny tiny parcels of joy. We started making our own gyoza the other year, after a night out where my boyfriend and I both admitted that all… Continue reading Pork and Sesame Gyoza
One of the big things we don’t eat any more are proper Sunday Roasts. I just can’t ignore the heapings of oil poured over the veg, the mounds of potatoes, and definitely not the Yorkshire puddings (the best bit of any roast unfortunately). The boyfriend feels like this is a hardship he shouldn’t have to… Continue reading Clean Sunday Roast
Weekday lunches at work can easily become boring (tuna salad x 5 days, with sad little tomatoes) or expensive (Japanika every day), so I try to make something happy, hearty and healthy that will last me the week. Last week I found a delicious Honestly Healthy recipe for chickpea and sweet potato stew and thought… Continue reading Hearty sweet potato and chickpea stew
Eating clean doesn’t have to be plain salads and cold tomatoes. The number one thing I like about this lifestyle is that you can take any comfort food and find a clean way to eat it. You don’t have to miss out on anything! Last weekend I needed some comfort food. It’s cold,… Continue reading Clean turkey and sweet potato shepherd’s pie
No carb. Low fat. High protein. All homemade. All delicious. This is one of those healthy meals you just go, oh dayam, how have I not been making this all the time. So satisfying for the soul, the waistline and the purse.
I love sushi, but that much white rice just is too much for me. So what to do? Slap some quinoa in there. Simple, quick, completely clean, and all the more delicious because you made it yourself. Last week we had this three times in a row. Yum. Makes 4 nori rolls, which makes enough… Continue reading Quinoa Sushi
The other day me and the man decided to have fish curry. I wasn’t sure. But I’d picked all the food for the previous two weeks so in the spirit of domestic bliss I conceded. We’ll have fish curry. Now I know it’s a normal dish to have. I get that. But I just couldn’t… Continue reading Clean and fresh fish curry
