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!!

Leftover Pork Breakfast

So a new year has begun! Last year flew by for me like you wouldn't believe. Or am I just getting older and that's what happens??

I was pretty slack on putting up posts here. And to be completely honest my primal diet has slipped to the wayside more than I would like it to. I would like to blame the Christmas period for that but I was on the slippery slope much before then. It's amazing how easy it is to justify those chocolate biscuits and those salsa Doritos. Mmmmm, Doritos. And didn't you know burgers taste awesome!!

But at the end of the day I simply have to say to myself; "What's more important? Instant gratification that the crappy food gives me or my health?"

Now I'm not saying that I'm going to dive head on into a 100% primal diet as I know all too well that that isn't realistic. But I can aim for as close to 100% as possible. I mean I like a margarita just as much as the guy sitting at Dukes bar in Waikiki right now does and little pleasures like that can change your day for the better. Just not everyday!

Today I came home from the gym and had a look in the fridge and made this stir fry thing with left over pork.

There is a salsa I put over the dish at the end and you can buy it from the supermarket. It's called Herdez Salsa and going by the label it has no crap in it. I buy mine from New World. Not sure if other supermarkets stock it.

Ingredients:

Leftover Pork Leg
1x Onion
2x Tomatoes
1x Courgette
1x Capsicum
1x tsp Crushed Ginger
1x tsp Crushed Garlic
Half an Avocado
Fresh Coriander
2 Tbsp Herdez Salsa
Salt & Pepper
Olive Oil




Start by putting a frying pan on a high heat and drizzle some olive oil into it.

Peel and slice your onion and  into the pan it goes.

To that add the crushed ginger and garlic and give it a good stir.



While that's frying away cut up your pork into small bite size chunks.

Also dice the courgette.

Once you can smell the onion cooking then add the pork and courgette to the pan.





Give that a good stir and let it fry for a few minutes.

Then dice up the capsicum and also dice up both the tomatoes.

Add the capsicum and tomatoes to the pan and stir.




And after a few minutes it should all look something like this:




Time to plate up your tasty meal!

Spoon as much as you want onto a plate.

Scoop out half the avocado onto the plate.

Take a big handful of the coriander and dice that up roughly and scatter onto the food.

Then take a couple of tablespoons of the salsa and spoon that onto the food as arty as you can make it.

Season with salt and pepper.




Enjoy!
