Fight Fit Friday - Superfood Salad Recipe | Health and LifestyleFriday, July 03, 2015
This week as seen me do light exercise like walking the dogs, squats and a few light sit ups. This will be the last week that my main focus will be on food only and exercise will be increased.
Here are the meals I have been enjoying this week on a typical day
Breakfast - Granola with greek yogurt, bananas, blueberries and a drizzle of honey.
I have also been eating egg and spinach omelette and overnight oats.
Lunch - Rice with feta, spinach and a mix of seeds for crunch.
I have also had this week a beef with apple salad and a chicken wrap.
Evening meals have been the most adventurous I love my superfood salad (recipe below).
I have also made steak with sweet potato and mixed seed rostis and pork loin and sweet potato in a homemade peanut sauce with rice (amazing fakeaway)
If I have needed a snack I have had an apple or rice cake with peanut butter or Hummus
Superfood Salad Recipe
1 cup of Quinoa
1 cup of lentils
1 cup of chic peas
4 Slices lean bacon
1 finely chopped pepper
1 diced red onion
quarter of a cucumber finely diced
handful of roughly chopped spinach
4 chopped dates
pomegranate seeds from half a fruit
juice from 1 lemon
Cook lentils, chickpeas and quinoa to pack instructions and mix together in a large bowl.
Add all the chopped fruit and salad and squeeze over the lemon and mix.
This does me 4 meals and is perfect for popping into tubs for work lunches.
You can add any other salad items you want I have used beetroot, carrot and tomatoes in the past and all work well. Also it is nice with a diced red chilli for a little kick.
Also if you are vegetarian or vegan the bacon can be left out.
Hope this has given you some inspiration
