GARLIC CASHEW CHICKEN

GARLIC CASHEW CHICKEN

As I have been smashing the gym recently, I have forever been seeking some quick, tasty, healthy meals to cook up once I get home. I have forced myself to the gym in the morning before work, meaning I can get home, cook and actually relax in an evening. However I don’t want to use all that time I’ve freed up cooking. I love cooking but so love relaxing too. When I get Thai or Chinese I love having chicken with cashews, so thought I could probably make something pretty…

FISH TACOS USING SMOKED BASA

I am a huge lover of fish and try to incorporate it into my diet as much as possible. Whenever I go out for dinner it will always be my dish of choice.

Those lovely overripe squidgy bananas, that I get to whisk them into a nice comforting Wintery bake. Recently I was offered to choose a box of products from TheFoodMarket.com. An online marketplace for natural and organic food that is made and sold by small, independent merchants. Within this box I received a lovely tub of Pip and Nut Almond butter. Nut butters are my fave. So what better…

Thats probably why I enjoyed it more as it has literally been months since I ate a good frittata. As I said I didnt have much…

It is the most simplest thing. As well as being a great healthy substitute for ice cream. The fact of using bananas is…
