Healthy Eating Tips
I hope everyone is having a good week so far, and I thought I’d share some of my favourite dishes and ingredients with you, which are great if you’re trying to either lose weight, try something new or be healthy in general!
The first one, which I only discovered since trying out this new diet plan! Which I would actually go as far to say that it’s one of my favourite dishes now, I prefer it warm, but this can work as a larger main meal or a small snack if necessary!
Chicken, Bacon and Avocado Salad – It may sound gross, I thought it did, but it is actually so so so nice and I didn’t expect the Avocado to go so well at all, but it did!
I pre-cooked the chicken, cooking it at 200 degrees – wrapped in tin foil for about 30 minutes, I grilled two slices of bacon and cut them up, and had a variety of salad leaves including spinach and rocket plus half an avocado – it was really simple and easy to make, after your prep is done, it takes less than 5 minutes to make! Brilliant for lunch at work or if you’re on the go
Another one of my favourite foods is Salmon, I honestly can’t get enough of it and it’s so good for you! I have it with a variety of stuff in a range of different types! One of my favourite types is salmon fillet, which I usually have with brown/wholegrain rice and kale! But if you’re not too hungry, kale and Salmon is a great meal in itself!

Another way I love salmon is smoked, it usually just screams good quality to me and tastes good whether you cook it or leave it as it is, here is my simple Salmon pasta recipe which is a great energy booster and it tastes great!
You need either Spaghetti or Pasta (up to your personal preference!) – I’d say about 1/3 of a bowl full. For the sauce, you need 2 tablespoons of Philadelphia Light cream cheese, 1 teaspoon of semi-skimmed milk, 1 teaspoon of lemon juice, pepper (personal preference on amount!) and one large slice of smoked salmon chopped J
Boil your pasta, and when its ready, in a separate pan, add the Philadelphia, then the milk, then the lemon juice and pepper and it’s up to you whether you want to throw the salmon in or not, I prefer too as its more flavour J and keep stirring until you get a sauce! Finally add in your pasta and hey presto!
I also added some Chia seeds on for good measure, as they’re full of vitamins and minerals – one of my favourite ingredients to put on top of most meals!
Other ingredients I think are fab include Kale, Spinach, Wholegrain noodles, chicken and steak – as well as salmon, they’re generally my favourites and you can get so creative with them!
