Lately I have been feeling really tired. Like really really tired. Maybe not as tired as my sister but nevertheless tired. I have recently eliminated my one can a day addiction Diet Coke which could be contributing! Haha! So in an attempt to try and alter a few things to improve this I have been looking around at some cook books that focus on nutrient dense eating.
I was initially skeptical of this new Gwyneth Paltrow cook book because I had read a passing review that said it would cost the average family $300 a week to eat from it. Anyway, I did quite a bit of reading found some of the recipes online and thought I would give it a try. So far the three recipes I have tried this week have been quick, delicious, and easy. The recipes are gluten free, dairy free and pretty much everything free! So it’s clean simple eating.
So it so far so good! I think I am going to buy the book now….
The first recipe was the slow cooked lamb chickpeas and pumpkin tagine.
Absolutely delicious. Definitely not a week night recipe a good one for the weekend as you need to be home to let it slow cook. Here is the link –
Monday night I made the risotto peas and greens. Again really yum, very fresh tasting. The best thing was not feeling yuck and heavy which often happens after you eat risotto. So this recipe has no butter and no cheese. My only advice is it’s very zesty so I only added the lemon juice not the lemon zest at the end. Taste it yourself at the end and decide.
And tonight’s recipe was –
Again really easy quick and delicious.
