Chicken « cordon blue » prepared on the grill without any butter or olive oil. Combined with a salad of tomatoes, cucumber and red onion. You can add some fried pine kernel. Gives it a nice taste!
For the vinaigrette: one spoon of champagne vinegar and two spoons of sunflower oil.
This is how you prepare a healthy lunch… when all of a sudden the husbie suffers from diabetes. And as from now on, we need to pay attention to what we will eat and drink. A real challenge for foodies like us!
As I’ve choosen my wedding dress last Saturday and as the 2nd of June is not that far away anymore, I started today my healthy program for the following three months. If you wanna look pretty, you need to suffer first!
Salade Niçoise … I use salad, green beans and tuna, I also add cherry tomatoes and cucumber.
The tuna goes perfectly with a lime chive vinaigrette. For this vinaigrette, you need to combine all following ingredients
Let the cherry tomatoes marinate 30 minutes in the fridge before adding them to your salad. Combine 1 red onion, a teaspoon of dried oregano, some olive oil and balsamico vinegar, and add the cherry tomatoes cut in pieces
My favourite Saturday lunch: shrimp croquettes. Fresh, homemade croquettes with a lot of shrimps inside! Served with a salad and basil vinegar. Happy Saturday!
One of the biggest challenges when you’re trying to pay attention to what you’re eating, is the fact that you’re so busy running around all the time and that buying a sandwich (club, martino, …) in the shop is so easy.
Unfortunately that is, in my eyes, the only positive thing about it. They are often too big (half of a « baguette ») and too fat (too much butter or mayonnaise).
I prefer to buy myself little sandwiches and to choose which topping to use. Today I went for fresh salad, mini-tomatoes and chicken fillet. The juice of the tomatoes makes them « not to dry ». And you won’t be tempted to add mayonnaise. Why do you need more?
Typical lunch: a fresh salad – with cherry tomatoes, red onion and chives – and a shrimp croquette. As dressing for the salad I’ve mixed some salad oil with champagne vinegar. Delightful!
