Here is another nutritious breakfast full of vibrant colours and essential minerals.

For today I have red, yellow and green bell peppers and Shredded Courgette which I tossed in the pan for a bit. I also have diced tomatoes and scrambled eat with chorizo.

And as always I have my greek yogurt with chia seeds, honey, peach, blueberries and Strawberries.

What a good way to start the week. I like how my breakfast has transformed over the months and all this ideas I got from going on one holiday. Sometimes it goes to go away to a different surroundings for fresh ideas.

Until next time, happy Monday.

This was me at to be saffron rice but the saffron I found was too expensive. In the rice is chorizo, mix bell peppers and salad. I loved this dish and will try it again.

I got a few ideas from my holiday which I incorporated in my lunches last week. The picture above are meals from this week just gone and the two weeks before that. I stepped up my breakfast idea too, which I will share in another post.

Until next time it’s bye from me.

IMG_20180621_132711_534

IMG_20180622_132432_446

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.

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.

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.
