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.

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.

The making of the smoothie…

I am no stranger to adding vegetables to my smoothies. In the past the majority of the ingresient were vegetable like broccolis spinach. This time round it’ s 4 of 5 a day.

Vegetable Orzo with turkey…

Balanced Diet, Cooking, Five A Day, Food, Lunch

Hello and welcome to my blog. So this post is about a revisit to a past recipe that a friend introduced me to about 4 years ago.

Orzo is a pasta shaped like rice. You can have it however you please room temperature or warm and obviously you can decide which vegetables to use.

IMAG1699

The ingredient i used. I used one whole red bell pepper and half green pepper.

I seasioned and steamed the turkey then fried the red and green bell pepper. When this was first introduced to me it was with pork but i opted for turkey instead. You can use chicken breast if you please.

The final product ith olives and parmasen cheese.

Until next time is bon appetit

My Lamb Meatball Recipe

These are the entire ingredient for the meal but for the purpose of this blog, I will stick with the recipe for the meatballs and final product of the meal.

Hello and welcome to my blog. As promised this is the recipe for my lamb meatballs I prepared in last weekend. I did not make it using the traditional ingredients. I have seen recipes which includes bread crumps which I have tried before but didn’t like the out come.

You may think why not just buy the meatballs and cook with it instead of putting yourself through all this stress? I like to make things from scratch just so I know what I am adding and how much. This is was one of my main reasons for eating more home cooked meals and eating less outside during my clear skin journey and I did see some improvement.

Using your own discretion in the amount of ingredient you want to use. These are the ingredients I used

 

Ingredients:

  • 500g of mince lamb,
  • Half of red onions
  • Ginger
  • Grounded black pepper,
  • Dried mint
  • Grounded cayenne pepper
  • Extra Virgin Olive oil
  • 1 Knorr lamb Cube
IMAG1422
Grate the garlic, onion and ginger and mix well with the a tea spoon of the extra virgin olive oil and spices (Mint, cayenne and black pepper)
IMAG1423
Wash the mince lamb to get any blood out and mix it into the mixture.

You then make small balls depending on how big you want your meatballs to be.

Let this slowly cook in the fan oven but if you cant wait put the heat up for it to cook quicker.
