Healthy Eating

There is nothing I love more than cooking. I love good food and I love to add different flavours in the kitchen. I also know that when I make my food fresh and from scratch that I won’t get Gluten contaminated and I can enjoy my meal. So here is a typical day and this is the options I like to cook all gluten free of course.

                         Breakfast

If I’m in a rush …Avocado on Brown Toast with Tea

On a Lazy day .. Boiled Eggs, Lean Bacon, Gluten Free Sausages & Bread

                                Lunch

If I’m working .. Cos Lettuce, Mixed Peppers,Spring Onions,Cherry Tomatoes, Chicken in Tomatoe Passata & Melted Cheese 

                            Dinner

When I’m home …Grilled Chicken, Garlic & Chilli Prawns on Bed of Salad 

                         Snacks

In the Evening .. Herbal Tea, Hummus Carrots & Celery Sticks

30minutes to prepare a healthy dinner!

Monday is always the hardest day to eat well and there is nothing worse than coming home from a long day to cook from scratch. So a little advice is on Sunday when making your dinner make extra food so you can use it for Monday’s dinner and that I just did.

I like to eat a lot of flavours as I find I feel more satisfied plus being coeliac I need a lot of vitamins in my food.

Vegetables
I used roasted sweet potato, turnips, carrots
Side Salad
Red peppers, spring onion, sweet corn, baby tomatoes and cucumber.
Cod
I bought these at the butcher they were already cleaned and frozen. Plus buying from a butcher you know exactly what it is in the food. Having a intolerance you need to stay away from packaged meat & fish and buy it fresh. I cooked the Cod for 20-25 mins on a lightly greased pan I used some Olive oil for that. Cod is quite light so I cooked two pieces to fill me up.
Avocado
I also mashed up 1/2 a avocado as a side too I love avocado.
Dressing
I also recently found this amazing Mint Sauce in Aldi and it is very low in calories. Made with Balsamic vinegar too so it was very tasty and added some flavour to the cod.

Preparation was literally only 30minutes as I had already the side salad & veg prepared. Personally it is a good way to make sure you’ll eat right and quickly ready for your busiest days. I had lots of time for myself in the evening to relax then 🙂

Tasty protein filled lunch 🐟

So today I had a delicious protein filled lunch I cooked the lunch last night as I am not a morning person haha! And I Done two batches one for my Fiance. Usually I’d cook myself double for lunch for two days but I’m bit wary with fish so I only ever prepare fish for the next days consumption.

Firstly I washed the Aspargus and then put them in a pot of boiling water and cooked them for less than 10 mins until they were tender. I drained them and left them to cool.

I also boiled some frozen brocolli for at least 10mins until they were cooked with these vegetables you don’t need to cook them too long or they’ll go mushy.

Then I preheated the oven for 5 mins I put the Alaskan Salmon on some tin foil I sprinkled both sides of the salmon with some water a little bit of our virgin olive oil, and some mixed herbs for seasoning I also added some pine nuts and then some fresh lemon slices to keep moisture then I loosely closed the tin foil and cooked for 25-30 mins.

When finished I put the salmon on a plate and left until it was cold and able to store popped them both in a lunch box & into the fridge.

I also had some gluten-free green curry sauce on top for some flavour as sometimes eating all greens can be very bland on the palette.
Have you any favourite on the go dishes ?
