Friday Dinner, Grilled chicken with wild rice & vegetables

Spinach, Asparagus, Wild Rice, Chicken breast, Baby Courgettes

Some of the ingredients for my dinner tonight, which I have to say was delicious but way too big, the dinner picture I have posted here, I didn't even manage to eat half of that and I was completely full to the brim.

Baby Courgettes (Yum!)

Wild Rice 

(Note: Wild rice needs to cook for up to an hour, so I decided to mix it with ordinary rice and it was done in 25 minutes)

The Finished Dinner

What I used:
2 chicken breast fillets (of which I could only eat one..) - I coated this lightly in soy sauce & teriyaki and grilled them for 4-5 minutes in my George Foreman grill.
1/4 cup of dry rice - boiled in 2 cups of water, boiled 25 mins.
A bowl of 1 handful spinach, broccoli stems, asparagus and baby courgettes, all steamed in the microwave for about 3-4 minutes in very little water.
4-5 plum tomatoes with pepper on.

And voila- healthy and extremely filling, no additives, just fresh loveliness :)

Like I said, I could only manage half of that plate full, all those vegetables filled me up a lot.

I might do a little post on what my boys had for dinner as that was really yummy too and both polished it off in no time.

Eat Clean- Get Lean- What's for dinner?

My Dinner Tonight

Hi all, I haven't been here for a very long time, ironically mostly because all my free time I spend at the gym, so not much time to update this and my other blog.
Having been toying with the idea for a while to change my blog up a bit, I thought what better way to start than to post a little bit about what I eat to stay healthy.

I have to admit that gone are my days of counting calories and worrying about that, instead I focus on eating good, non-processed foods and I try to practice a lot of positive thoughts, some of which are to do with being healthy, and my mindset has changed for the better.

If you are interested I shall keep a food diary here, as often as I can, it inspires myself, and in turn if it can inspire one or two other people, then that's a major bonus.

Tonights dinner consisted of:

Thai Green Spice Mix tossed with brown rice
King prawns
Pak Choi & chopped baby cabbage
Orange & Santini tomato salad
Steamed asparagus

It was totally delicious and I am full now..
If I fancy anything later I shall have an orange and a herbal tea.

See you again soon for the next food update :)

Until then, be well x
