Food, Fun and Face!

Welcome to my blog! I'm starting this blog to add some spice to some of your kitchens! I follow a primal lifestyle which basically means I eat a whole bunch of vegetables, good meats, some fruit, nuts and seeds and a little dairy. I avoid eating all grains and try not to eat processed food and limit the amount of sugar I throw down my throat. Basically the name of the game is to eat REAL FOOD. Sounds simple right? But sometimes people find it hard to start to eat this way. So this blog is here to help you (and me) throw together some awesome tasty food . So please stay a while and get your creative kitchen juices flowing again!!

Chicken Salad with a Mint, Coriander and Lemon Dressing

Day 2 of clean eating is underway and already feeling better for it. Maybe it's just a mental thing but that doesn't matter as long as you're in the right frame of mind then you'll make good decisions.

How many peeps out there actually plan out exactly what they are going to eat for the day? Or even the week for that matter? I would be interested to hear if you could leave comments below.

This salad is once again super easy and quick to make and tastes amaze-balls.

Ingredients:

2x B/less & S/less Chicken Thighs.
Lettuce Leaves
Half a Capsicum
1x Tomato
Juice of half a Lemon
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Fresh Mint
Fresh Coriander
Salt & Pepper



Firstly put a pan on a high heat.

Take your chicken thighs and lay them on a board and season one side with salt and pepper.



Lay the chicken thighs seasoned side down on the hot pan. There's no need to oil the pan or anything. There is enough fat in the chicken.




Once the thighs are in the pan then season the side facing up with salt and pepper.

Now time to start to mix all the salad bits together.

Rip up the lettuce leaves and put in a bowl.

Dice up Tomato and Capsicum and add to bowl.

Chop up a handful of mint and coriander and add to bowl.

Add a swirl of the olive oil.

Add the juice of half a lemon.

Give it all a good mix through.




By this stage it will be time to turn your chicken thighs over.

Cook them for another few minutes and they are cooked right through.

Remove from pan and cut up into slices and add to your salad.



Mix them through and enjoy!!
