Clean Eating Detox

Hi Everyone,

I have successfully finished week two of my clean eating detox. (Thankfully) I think this is the longest I have gone without having to binge due to high temptations for chocolate, coke or chips.  I think I am doing well but obviously there is always room for improvement.

Thanks to my brother who is very health conscious for motivating and some what threatening my sister and I to change our eating habits. Now it is time to put everything that I’ve read and heard about clean eating to practice. There is a hundred and one different dieting techniques out there. By no means am I a dietician so I am in no position to give advice on much. Not only from a professional perspective but also need to see if what I am doing is going to work.

Anyways, on Saturday I just felt like a refreshing, filling but healthy lunch. I was working in Port Melbourne so I started researching local restaurants and cafes that would statisfy my craving. And boy oh boy did I hit the jackpot. I found amazing places that offered healthy options. My all time favourite thing to eat on all occasions would be salad.

Every. single. type. of. salad.

I can probably eat them for breakfast, lunch and dinner. As you may know, I did a mini series of salad recipes on my blog. This is where I shared 5 different salad recipes over 5 days. They were easy, refreshing and filling. I will provide the links to all my Heathy Eating post below, please feel free to take a look at them.

Okay back to talking about the amazing salads I had on Saturday. Luckily I took a picture that I can share. So I got a mix of two, first one was with broccoli and peanuts; the other was shredded veggies like cabbage, beetroot, carrot and heaps more.

There was a variety of different options like; vegan, vegetarian and gluten free. (Winning!)

Nicoise Salad (Tuna, Eggs & Green Beans) – DAY 5

Hi everyone,
This is the end of the cycle for the daily salad posts. I am going to end this series with a BANG! The final salad is my favorite over the past couple days. My aim for these post were to show that you can make anything with what you have, where you are.

Most of the ingredients that I used were the ones I had at home, I did not specifically go shopping for these salad at all. Like me you will most likely have these ingredients at home. Even if you don’t  you can simply just substitute it with what you do have.

Salads are an effortless way to minimize calories at a meal, and maximize nutrients. As it is currently Summer in Australia, it is easy to turn salads from a side dish into a complete meal by just adding a protein such as chicken, meat or eggs.

If you would like to see a series of anything else please do not hesitate to ask, I am more than welcome to share recipes and pictures.

IMG_2210-0.JPGINGREDIENTS:

A bunch of green beans(Boiled)

1 small potato (Boiled)

1 can of tuna (preferably in oil as it adds to the dressing)

2 eggs (You can either boil or pouch. I like my eggs runny but you can cook it to the way that you like.)

Olives (Preferably Kalamata olives)

Salt

Lemon juice

Carrot, Zucchini, Green Beans with a Pistachio Dressing – DAY 4

Hi Everyone!

This one of the easiest salad that ever exist. Once again this is my sisters recipe, she will kill me if I did not mention that. You are probably sick and tired of reading the same thing, so I am going to say it one last time: SALADS ARE THE BEST!

We usually make this salad on the side of Chicken Parmigiana or Steak with potatoes as well. If you are allergic or do not like pistachios you can just leave them out of course.

(Salad)

1 carrot

1 zucchini

A bunch of green beans

INGREDIENTS:

(Dressing)

Crushed Pistachio

Juice of a whole lemon

Rocket, Pear & Cheese Salad – DAY 1

Hi everyone!

Can we just we just talk about how awesome salads are? You can basically make a salad with anything and everything. They are so light, refreshing and suppress hunger at the same time. Salad are so easy to make, only use a few ingredients and suitable for all occasions.

When I went to my friends house last week, she made this amazing salad. So I decided to recreate it for my blog. Likewise, I am going to publish a post everyday about a new and easy salad to create. I will include the list of ingredients for the salad, the dressing and photos of my creation.

2015/01/img_5674.jpg

INGREDIENTS:

(Salad)

Rocket lettuce (Use as much as you want, I used a whole packet from the supermarket and it served two)

1 Pear (It is better to have a pear which is firm as it would not get mushed when you are mixing the salad)

Tasty Cheese (You can use any cheese you would like, Parmesan cheese will taste amazing)

INGREDIENTS:

(Dressing)

Olive Oil

Pomegranate Molasses (You can probably find this in the Middle Eastern aisle at the supermarket. It has a sour taste so add as much or little as you want)

Salt

And Voilà!2015/01/img_5677.jpg
