Why not enjoy steamed wild salmon with a side of oven-roasted asparagus, seasoned with olive oil, lemon juice and fresh dill or garlic? Add a 1 cup serving of a whole grain, like brown rice, lentils or a whole grain roll. If you prefer, you could replace the salmon with cod, scallops, prawns or chicken.
Steak and vegetables
You can also eat a grilled lean steak with a side of steamed vegetables and quinoa or brown rice. Roasted sweet potatoes and black beans make great side dishes as well.
Turkey with garlic mushrooms
A grilled turkey breast with a side of mushrooms grilled with fresh butter and garlic.
Pepper and couscous
This pepper has been filled with couscous, carrot, onions and pancetta. What a lovely idea for healthy nutritious meals for lunch, dinner or a snack.
Oriental salmon parcels
Take one salmon fillet per person Wrap in foil with some sweet chilli sauce, soy sauce, lemon juice and ginger. Cook in a medium oven for 20 minutes. Serve on a bed of rice, or with some salad.
Home-made peanut butter
Make your own peanut butter without additives or added sugar. Chop up 2 cups of raw or roasted peanuts in a food processor, then slowly blend in 1 and 1/2 teaspoons of vegetable or canola oil until you get the consistency you desire, either smooth or chunky.
Sicilian pesto dip
You’ll need basil, parsley, 2 or 3 tomatoes, 1 stick celery, garlic to taste, pine nuts, olive oil. Combine ingredients and blitz in a blender. Delicious and perfect with any healthy nutritious meals!
