It’s Recipe Time! (May 2015)

Happy Wednesday to you. How are you? Anything to report? What good things are going on in your life? What are you struggling with? Remember that there is good in every day; sometimes you just need to search a little harder to find it! If I can be of any help, please don’t hesitate to email me here.

Can you believe that’s us into June as of Monday? Summer is almost in full swing. Do you have a holiday booked? Follow these recipes and have a scout around the websites to get plenty of ideas to keep you on the straight and narrow with your nutrition so you look and feel great on the beach.

Here’s what I’ve cherry picked for you this week from my favourite sites:

Eggs

Eggs are awesome. They are relatively cheap, versatile, delicious, nutritional and easy to create dishes from that you can take on the go! This easy frittata from NomNom Paleo is an example of such a dish. You can essentially turn any leftover meat into a frittata. All you do is dice it up small, chop some veggies of your choice, fry them in a pan with a little coconut oil, add some eggs and coconut milk and pop it all in the oven until it sets. You can add herbs, spices, garli – whatever tickles your pickle! This is also adaptable for veggies who want to bypass the meat.

Meat/Poultry

I don’t normally post pork recipes, instead sticking with chicken, turkey or red meat of some description. However, this recipe looked too good not to share! Again from PaleOMG, one of my favourite sites, these Thai pork veggie meatballs look unreal. Serve with courgette or carrot ‘spaghetti’ and some leafy greens and you’ve got yourself something special!

Fish

This dish calls for mahi mahi but this can be a bit of a hassle to get for some. Instead, substitute in some sea bass which will work just as well. Served with a delicious mango and avocado salsa on a bed of sticky coconut ‘rice’, this option is low in carb and high in protein and healthy fats.

Veg/Salad

Drizzled in a colorful curry-infused oil and then roasted to bring out their flavour, this vegetable curry is anything but boring. It’s a great way to make something with a distinctive taste but with essentially the same amount of work as any other roasted vegetable recipe. This could be served alongside cauli or jasmin rice but is also a delicious side to go with grilled chicken or fish.

Treats

Crepes are the business. The smell reminds me of the Christmas market in Glasgow where you can get the most epic nutella and banana crepes. Tasty, yes but good for maintaining a healthy approach to nutrition? no! Instead, opt for home made with these lemon crepes with blackberries and peaches.

Well, that’s it for another week or two. If you find any special recipes yourself worth sharing, please pass them our way; email them here or post them on our Facebook or Twitter pages.

Enjoy all your meals and remember; you can’t out-train a bad diet! Failure to prepare is preparing to fail!
