At my home we use a simple 3 step ‘formula’ to create delicious, healthy and incredibly satisfying dinners.
Just follow these 3 steps:
1) Choose a good quality protein. Whether it is fish, chicken, eggs, beef, lamb, tofu or lentils. We love to do as much as possible on the BBQ, especially in Summer. We try to minimise using processed ingredients/sauces and usually stick with olive oil, fresh herbs and spices. Good for the bank and better for your health.
2) Choose a grain and/or substantial vegetables. Favourites for us include brown rice, sweet potato, corn or pumpkin. Alternatively a mixed stir fry with noodles can be inserted here 🙂
3) Go mad with salad! We have a large, fresh salad at every dinner sitting. We pile in the spinach leaves and add whatever vegetables we have in the fridge. Occasionally, depending on what else we are having, we will add a cheese, nuts or fruit. For dressing, we use a good quality olive oil and vinegar. Rock salt, pepper and a squeeze of lemon to add the final touch.
*Please not that cold winter nights call for something a bit more heart-warming.
That is tonight for us. My mums cottage pie is on the menu.. with a large green salad ofcourse 🙂
