Hello and welcome to my blog. In the blogpost i have my a week in review. it is long over due i know so i have come to you with some of the meals i have been having for lunch.
This is a Lamb burger and oven baked chips.
This is a salmon salad which as avocado, tomatoes, olives, cucumber and bell peppers.
one of my go to meals when i am bored with almost everything. Salmon and a variety of vegetables.
This is salmon and wholemeal couscous. I mix the couscous in mixed vegetable and asparagus.
Here we have white potatoes with salmon and vegetables.
As you can see i have vegetables in all of these lunches that i have over the past week. This is to ensure that i am getting the nutrition i need from food and as we already know fruits and vegetable are packed with the essential minerals, nutrients and vitamins require for the body to stay healthy.
I strongly believe that if you have a balance diet rich in various vitamins and nutrients you are less likely to fall ill. I choose my ingredients carefully and research on the vitamins i can get from it, if the food item provides no nutritional value then i will have to cut it out of my diet.
I will end this blog here and until next time it bye from me.
Hello and welcome to my blog. So it looks like I missed last week’s week in review. I was off from work so didn’t really do much with food. No smoothie however I did retreat to the usual chicken. This post will be a mixture of last week’s and last two weeks.
This was Mondays lunch. Mix vegetable bulgur and left over lamb
This is a mix vegetable and turkey Wholemeal noodles. I believe I had this on Tuesday. I will blog about the recipe later
I had this for dinner on two occasion. Oven baked chips, bread chicken and mix vegetable. What you see on the chips is Nando’s perperi salt
This salad I had on Wednesday doesn’t look appetising lol but yes it was nice
This is Wholemeal turkey fajitas. I made this a couple of weeks ago and kept a bit of it in the freezer just so it does go off. Thursday’s lunch
Fridays was a very colourful lunch with chicken, vegetables and bulgur
This was last two weeks lunch. It’s mixed vegetables bulgur and chicken
Different shaped sweet potatoes and vegetable
Oven baked chips, chicken and mixed vegetable
The fruits I had from work fruit box
I had a bit more bananas this week as the tangerine and apples were quite difficult to eat. They were not as sweet as previous weeks fruits. 😬
As you can see from my lunch, I am trying to have a variety of meal and this is because I am not a big fan of food so I am trying to have different meals available to encourage myself to eat.
Until next time, it’s bye from me.
Hello and welcome to my blog. Today’s post is about how I marinade and cook my chicken.
Making of the chicken
To clean my chicken I use lemon and ensure I take off any unwanted extra fat or hard bit on the legs.
The mixtress mixes spices too
I usually mix my own spices to marinade the chicken. It is only recently I have started adding other cudes and powdered spices. I usually crate onions, garlic and ginger. I then melt 2 knorr and let it cool. Adding a bit lemon and chilli powder as well.
Onions, ginger and garlic
When the spice meet the spice
I let this stay as is for a while while I do something else or due to laziness just leave it there for a while. I then eventually place it in the oven to slow cook for about 2 hours at 100 °C. Ensure you regulate the temperature or cook it longer.
Melted knorr cubes
I use 2 to 3 of this cubes depending on how many chicken I am cooking.
Some more seasoning. Not ideal I know. The aim to ensure you know what you are putting in your food.
Mix it all together. I squeezed a bit of lemon on it too
I put this on a foil and then put it in the oven to bake or cook whatever you want to call it. I use a foil all the time as I feel it better that way healthwise. Let me know if this is how you cook yours.
This is how it looks after 1.5 to 2 hours. I cut parts of it so that the marinade will go on the inside.
You can now have this however you want it. With couscous, salad, rice potatoes or by itself.
Until next time, happy cooking.
Hello and welcome to my blog. This week’s smoothie had a bit of a twist. I added avocado for the first time. It does taste any different but obviously you will taste the hint of avocado in it.
The ingredient is as follows
The smoothie ingredients minus Broccoli
This is basically your more than five a day in a glass. I wanted to add kale but could not find one in Asda.
Viola, ready to serve…
Until next time, cheers.
Hello and welcome to my blog. As you may have noticed I have not been posting about my lunch meals lately. I will be doing this on a weekly basis just to ensure that the post is properly prepared. For now let’s call it The week in review.
For Monday I had potatoes, vegetables and lamb with gravy
On Tuesday I had mix vegetables with couscous and chicken Nando’s lemon and herb sauce
Wednesdays lunch was star shaped sweet potatoes with mixed vegetables and chicken
On Thursday I wanted to have couscous but turns out the cous cous had gone off due to the heat. Preservation issues. So I had vegetables and lamb.
Friday was mix vegetable brown rice and chicken with chilli sauce
I bought organic chicken this time because the free range available was to be on display till Monday. I noticed the taste was slightly different. It was really delicious. Might be due to how I cooked it.
As you can see I am trying to incorporate vegetable at every given chance. I am very strict about having a balance diet while ensuring that I have enough carbs and protein to maintain my weight.
In addition to this I have morning fruits thereby having all the nutrition I could possibly have. So I am basically having more than five a day.
I would also like to invest in a juicer. A good one is very expensive so I am going to save up for that.
Until next time, eat well and you will feel better.

Hello and welcome to my blog. I hope you are doing well. This blogpost is a bit late but i guess better late than never.
From looking at these items you will have a wild guess as to what my meal is likely to be
This week my meal plan has a flavour and twist to it. I also bought some ingredient for my smoothie, for more details check out my previous post on ‘what’s in my smoothie?‘
I am not sure if i have mentioned this but every morning mostly monday to friday i have a warm water and lemon in the morning to ensure last nights meal has been eliminated. I drink this with a straw for the sake of my teeth.
This week’s meal plan
I have two options:
– Turkey Fajitas
– Lamb, potatoes and vegetables
Thats all for this post. Until next time it’s #HappyCooking.
Hello and welcome to my blog. As always this blog is well overdue. I started writting and could not get back to finishing it off.
This is the recipies for my chicken.
The ingredient i usually use if i dont make my own which usually include raw galic, onions, ginger black pepper
What you need is a bit of yogurt, black ground pepper, cayenne pepper, a pinch of salt and olive oil. You can add any other herbs you have.
– Mix well in a bowl before that, clean the chicken with lemon to get rid of the rawness.
– Marinade the chicken well with the mixture. Cut some marks in the chicken so the marinade will get in the chicken. I let it marinade over night because i could not be bored to stay awake for it to cook lest it get burnt. 😊
Slow cook in the oven its its cook. I usually leave it in the oven at 100 to 150 for 1hr and cook somemore if need be.
Thats all folks. Until next time its bye from me.
