You Like Salsa? Salsa Likes you

I have been cooking this recipe since I left home. It is super easy, cheap and oh so good for you! I often cook it with chicken, but last night we had fish there and waiting, ready to cook, so I thought, ‘HUZZAH, CAJUN FISH’. Ingenious, I know!This recipe has your lean protein with the fish, your good fats from the avocado, chili for your metabolism, and your all essential vegies. I use the pre-mixed Cajun spice from the supermarket, but I have included the Cajun spices down the bottom as well. Enjoy x x

Cajun Fish

Serves 2

  • 2 x firm white fish fillets / chicken breast, diced
  • Cajun spices
  • 1 tbs Extra Virgin olive oil
  • Green veg to serve
  • 2 tbs corainder, chopped

      The Salsa. Cha cha cha

  • 1/2 an avocado, diced
  • 1 tomato, finely diced
  • Juice from 1/2 lemon
  • Juice from 1/2 lime
  • Sprinkle of Cajun Spices

Combine all Salsa ingredients in a bowl. Set aside.

Heat a pan to medium heat, add olive oil

Sprinkle cajun spices on fish generously, add to pan and sautee fish until just cooked.

Serve with half the salsa mix, top with the coriander and serve with your green veg.

Notes:

Cajun spice can be bought from any supermarket

The one I purchase contains the following flavours: salt, paprika, pepper, onion powder, dried basil, garlic powder, chilli, fennel, dried thyme

Here Cookie, Cookie, Cookie…

As a person who is always looking for new and inventive ways to eat clean and eat healthy, I love looking around to experiment with creating fun and tasty snacks, this way I’m not getting bored and still feel like I get to eat treats guilt-free! Finding wholefood, paleo-kinda, no sugar snacks is near impossible for the everyday person or expensive, so creating your own snacks is a great way to still enjoy the little treats in life.

So protein cookies, NO COME BACK! I PROMISE THESE ONES ARE GOOD! Phew, almost lost you there. There are a lot of recipes for whey protein and clean eating and yes, sometimes these recipes SUCK and you end up baking cookies that you make you lose faith in the healthy eating train! But fear not, my lovelies!! I found a cracker *taps the table with knuckles*! I use whey protein isolate powder, but if you don’t want to use that I’m sure you could experiment with different flours eg. coconut, or almond flour.

(This recipe was adapted from a recipe I found in Australian Oxygen Magazine, Dec/Jan 11/12)

PROTEIN COOKIES

(makes 6 cookies)

  • 1/2 cup dessicated coconut
  • 1 tbsp almond butter
  • 1 scooop whey protein powder (I used unflavoured, but you could probably use any flavour)
  • 1 egg white
  • 2 packets of stevia, to taste
  • 1/2 tsp baing powder
  • 1/8 cup dates (or whatever you would like to put in it, eg carob chips, sultanas etc)

1. Preheat oven to 180C and line an oven tray with baking paper.

2. Combine all the ingredients together in a mixing bowl and mix with clean hands.

   

3. Shape the dough into golf size balls. Place onto the baking paper about 4cm apart. Bake for about 10 minutes. Serve. EASY AS PIE!… I mean cookies…

Tip: Take them out at 10 minutes or when they look just cooked. An overcooked protein cookie is a dry, unhappy protein cookie! 

I also tried experimenting with chocolate flavoured ones from raw cacao powder, however they didn’t turn out as tasty… I’ll keep you posted when I crack some other flaves… enjoy, my protein lovin’ readers…
