Hello Beautiful People ❤
I hope you’re all having a great day, happy Hump Day and all that. Last week for me was pretty hectic, I got very little healthy baking done. This week however, things have slowed down slightly so I made this Paleo recipe last night; Raspberry & Coconut muffins. Continue reading
Hello Beautiful People ❤
I hope you are enjoying your day? I have been on a bit of a baking buzz this week. I love making healthy versions of my favourite (not so healthy) foods. It makes it so much easier to stay on track when you actually like what you are eating. This recipe comes from the Little Green Spoon, I love her recipes and find that they are pretty simple & easy to make. It is Gluten free and Paleo too 🙂
The winter weather is now officially upon us here in Ireland and it is absolutely freezing. For myself personally I always crave warm, hearty dinners after a long day in work, particularly after a long, cold journey home. I therefore find it is quiet easy to opt for dinners that as a result of their ‘comfort’ aspect, have high levels of salt and saturated fat. I am currently in the search for healthy alternatives to these meals as I can honestly say, I will not be eating salad throughout the winter!
A new dinner that I am currently loving and have decided to share with you is a substitute for a creamy fish pie and potatoes / chips. The substitute meal is free from refined carbs and dairy. It is full of nutritional goodness, but also really tasty (the main thing!)
What it Includes:
Replace regular chips / potatoes with 3/4 of a large sweet potato, I cook it in the oven and finish it off on the George Forman as it makes it nice and soft.
Replace the pie with a cooked Salmon fillet mixed with a creamy sauce and spinach. The sauce is dairy and carb free too (recipe below) This combined with the inclusion of the spinach ensures this flavouring is not only tasty but extremely nutritious and will keep you full for longer. I’m not usually one who would eat Spinach but I can barely even taste it mixed with this sauce. It is full of iron and vitamins so is an excellent add on to any meal.
1/2 tsp of Coconut Oil
1 tbsp of Coconut Flour
3/4 cup of Almond Milk
What you do:
Melt the coconut oil in a saucepan / pot
Stir in the flour
Add the milk to abolish lumps
Bring to the boil & simmer for 3 minutes
Sorry the picture isn’t the greatest, but it tastes a lot better than it looks!
Tip: Make enough for 2 and bring some for lunch the next day, food prep is the easiest way to eat healthy in my opinion. Failing to prepare meals leads to me being hungry and snacking on junk food.
Hope you enjoy 🙂
