Living the good life, the healthy way

Two seriously delicious dinners I want to share with you

The last couple of days I have been trying new recipes (with my own modifications, one of them completely remade), and both of them I went "I need to cook this again, definately!".
First out was this asian salmon/bean salad which was just amazing! Let me see if I can remember how I did it...
Two servings:

  • 2 filets of salmon
  • a bunch of mushrooms
  • a tin of mixed beans
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • some fresh grated ginger
  • sesame oil
  • neutral oil (coconut/sunflower/rapeseed)
  • soy
  • spinach leaves
  • sesame seeds
Chop the salmon into cubes, dice the mushrooms and stir fry them in a little bit of sesame oil, neutral oil and soy. Add in grated garlic and ginger, add more sesame oil/neutral oil and soy if needed. Add the beans, and let it all fry until cooked. Spinkle sesame seeds over it all and serve on a bed of spinach leaves. Absolutely fantastic! (I had some sambal oelek in it too, but if you don't like chili you can leave it out).
Second amazing dinner was this wrap:
  • 2 chicken breast
  • 2 tomatoes
  • ½ red pepper
  • ½ onion
  • 3 big teaspoons of tapenade
  • fresh rosemary
  • fresh oregano
  • spinach leaves
  • alfalfa sprouts
  • 2 wholemeal wraps
Dice the chicken into cubes, dice onion finely, same with pepper and tomatoes. Fry it all with generous amounts of tapenade. Add salt and pepper after taste. Cook until it's ready. Lay some spinach leaves and sprouts on the wraps. Top with the chicken stir (and a little sundried tomato if you wish), and serve! The only downside of this dish was that the bread went maybe the bread is better served on the side. Up to you! Delicious either way :)
Hope you have a great Wednesday!

Chicken and bean stew.

I want a fashion blog, I want a cooking/exercise blog, I want a photography blog. Hmmm, all in one? Or three differetn ones. There is too much inspiration out there :-)
Anyway, cooked this lovely dinner tonight. I realised I had already posted this recipe before, right here <-- click!
This time I used a variety of beans rather than just large white ones, but otherwise it's exactly the same. I'm longing for brighter and longer days, to make my photography more interesting again. Dark rooms do not make food look the most appealing on photos (geez, many "o"s in that sentence!).
Jag vill ha typ alla slags bloggar, får så mycket inspiration när jag surfar runt, men man kan väl bara ha en slags blogg, eller? Lagade denna fantastiska kycklingrätt ikväll och längtar efter längre och ljusare dagar. Mörka rum får god mat att se väldigt tråkig ut på foto!

Dinner times two

Yesterday's dinner: Chickenwings and salad
Tonight's dinner: Curry and whole grain pasta.

Was on a bit of a low yesterday. Didn't have any energy and was incredibly bored with just about everything. Today I have much more energy and happiness back! Feel positive, lucky and pleased with life, even the things that might not be going as well as I'd wish. 
By the way, who can live without veggies? I feel quite sorry for people who don't like fruit and veg. All they eat is like boring pasta, dairy and meat. No colour, no amazing flavours! Tsk, veggies are the best!
Kände mig lite låg och orkeslös igår, men är mycket gladare och mer positiv idag! Har varit och fikat med en gammal vän och lagat en god curry till middag. Hur kan man liksom inte gilla grönsaker och frukt? Det är ju det som ger mest smak till mat. Utan det blir det nån brun tråkig tallrik med bara kolhydrater och kött, typ. Trist!

Vaccination drama and dinner

Published 2012-11-27 19:30:05 i Chicken, Dinners, GI recipes, Living life,

We went out for some Christmas inspiration today, but didn't find very much, I bought a few new decorations though :-) Also went to have the first lot of vaccinations done before the trip to Egypt in February (soo excited!!). I'm not scared of having injections and never have been, it didn't even hurt a slight little bit, but still I almost passed out. For some reason I became all dizzy, and light headed, sweaty and felt all the colour leave my face, so i had to lay down for a while, haha!
Anyway. Now we're home and have just eaten a lovely dinner of chicken, bulgursalad with mango and avocado, lettuce and home made green tomato chutney.
For the chicken: Take 2 chicken breasts, cover them in a layer of salt, pepper, cinnamon, cumin and paprika. Grill in the oven at 200 degrees C for about 25-35 minutes, depending on their size.
For the bulgursalad: Cook bulgur according to the packet, chop 1 mango and ½ avocado into little pieces. Mix with the bulgur when it's ready and add some pepper if you wish. 
Serve with some lettuce and some tasty chutney or maybe a lime sauce made out of sourcream and limejuice.

Chicken for dinner

Vert tasty dinner tonight (even though I put a tad too much salt in it, oops!)!
Chicken in tomato sauce with white beans for two:
  • 2 chicken breasts
  • ½ white onion
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • 1 chicken stock cube
  • 1 can chopped tomatoes
  • 1 can large white beans
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • some chopped parsley

Dice the chicken and fry in some olive oil, until they have some colour. Take them off the pan and put in chopped onion and garlic. Fry until soft and add chopped tomatoes, seasoning and chicken. Let it simmer under the lid for about 20-25 minutes. Add the beans and let it simmer for another 5 minutes. Taste it off with salt and pepper. Serve with some salad. 1 portion is about 375 calories.
