Chicken, Quinoa and Roast Brussels Sprouts Salad

Chicken, Quinoa and Roast Brussels Sprouts Salad

This was a recipe from my most recent detox program which involves 21 days of no sugar (or substitutes), no caffeine, no alcohol, no gluten and no processed food. It might sound difficult but when you're eating meals like this, trust me,  one  you don't miss any of that stuff at all! 

Seaweed Salad

Seaweed Salad

A seaweed salad may not sound appealing if your thinking that green slimy stuff they serve at Japanese restaurants, but I assure you, this recipe is seriously good! It is so light and fresh with a delicious combo of Asian flavours and you won't even know there's seaweed in there. 

Quinoa, Pumpkin and Haloumi Salad

Quinoa, Pumpkin and Haloumi Salad

This would have to be one of my all time favourite salads with the combination of roast pumpkin, salty haloumi and pops of sweet pomegranate you just can't go wrong. Quinoa has a fantastic amino acid profile providing a complete vegetarian source of protein as well as being high in calcium, iron, B vitamins and phosphorus.

Millet, Chickpea and Broccoli Salad

Millet, Chickpea and Broccoli Salad

This salad is a fantastic example of how you can balance a vegetarian meal. Millet is a great gluten free alternative that is similar to cous cous when cooked and is rich in iron, phosphorus and B vitamins, not to mention it also has an impressive amino acid profile for a grain. In this recipe I have used turmeric in the cooking liquid which has phenomenal anti-inflammatory properties.
