Healthy 2013 let’s go!

So 2013 is here now and I have decided that its time to get healthy again, since being hit by a car exercise has well been limited to non existent. So as well as doing the Cancer Research Dryathlon Steph and I thought well let's get to the gym and get eating healthier. Over the next few weeks I will post a few of the meals we have a long the way.

In replacing some of the more common staples I know couscous is going to become a close friend of mine. For this meal I roasted some root veg added lemon juice then mixed into the prepared couscous. Served that with some spiced chicken and asparagus. I love yogurt spiced chicken but to be healthy I used low fat Creme fraiche. Little asparagus and it worked well.

For tonight's meal I used some cracking trout from the freezer that I bought before Christmas. Once defrosted I made a paste of chilli, lemongrass, garlic, soy sauce, fish sauce, coriander, ginger and sea salt. Once formed I coated the trout and left to marinate. In the meantime I prepared red pepper and carrot for a noodle salad. I went for vermicelli as I love the texture they keep once cooked. I cooked the trout in parchment on a bed of onions for 15 minutes at 180 degrees. It came out moist and delicious.

So far so good on the healthy eating express :)!

So today we had some veal from the fantastic Peelham Farm. Tonight's chef was my lovely Steph, she cooked the veal in a herb citrus sauce and served with asparagus and spinach. Delicious 🙂
