Hi friends 😀
I hope you are all doing great!! Everything is well around these parts of the woods. We had an awesome few days with my favourite @M&M_taleoftworuns (MIL) and I have a little confession to make… somehow 3 pounds managed to find their way in me LOL! During @M&M_taleoftworuns’s visit we ate – no really, WE ATE – quite a bit more than usual…I mean, it isn’t such a big deal and I enjoyed every single bite! Oh this woman can cook! We are talking home made bread and pies (both sweet and savoury) and cookies and home made greek food… So here we are now where both of us are … hmm how to put it nicely?!?! Well there is a little “more” of us than before 😛 So both me and @mymamus decided to kick it into a little lighter gear than before… Not a really big deal since we really both love salads and greens but it made me to come up with a few seriously yummy salad recipes! These are the kind of salads that can provide you with a solid dinner, packed with protein and fiber and very little, if any, carbohydrates 🙂
#1 Soya sauce pan seared turkey breast over greens (lettuce, string beans, spinach) with corn and cherry tomatoes – topped with black sesame seed and a light balsamic vinaigrette.
#2 Baked chicken breast over pan seared Brussel sprouts in coconut oil with avocado, cherry tomatoes and a poached egg topped with chia seeds and a pinch of chilli powered.
#3 Shredded baked salmon on soya sauce over roasted broccoli and sweet potato chunks with lettuce topped with avocado and black sesame seeds.
#4 Soya sauce pan seared chicken over kale and spinach greens with pineapple, cucumber and avocado chunks topped with pecans, white sesame seeds and cheese (low fat) crumbles.
#5 Balsamic and rosemary glazed-baked carrots and chicken over lettuce and sweetcorn.
Of course all 5 recipes are @mymamus approved. I hope you enjoy them as much as we did!
Bon appetit mon amis 😀
