This is such a great dish. The other week I made us my sesame chicken (recipe coming soon!), and just didn’t want anything carby with it. Noodles were off the menu! It was also a week night, so I wanted to avoid cooking up another side dish if possible – if I can make it… Continue reading Chinese leaf salad and warm sesame dressing
A big part of my weekly food planning is ‘what am I going to have for lunch at work?’. It needs thought – something that I won’t get bored of by Wednesday, something I can either make in one go on Sunday, or take in a bag and make up all week. It needs to… Continue reading Garlic avocado dip (for open sandwiches!)
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
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
This is the perfect winter warmer. Full of flavour and packed with nutrients you can’t go wrong with it, and as it’s home-made, It’s 100% clean. Even better – freeze the left overs (in soup bowl amounts) for future quick lunches! I love having these to hand when it’s cold, you don’t want to cook… Continue reading Roasted pepper and tomato chilli soup
This is such an easy clean eating win. Protein, veg, make in advance and eat cold, have hot, have with a salad, change the veg to whatever you love, and on and on and on. And it’s so cheap to make.
Dinners can be hard when you work a busy job. You’re exhausted when you get in, and the last thing you want to do is cook a nice clean meal for yourself. What you need are some easy, clean and delicious meals up your sleeve! This is one of my favourites. It only takes 30… Continue reading Protein Power: Easy turkey burgers
