Great feed this one.. and reasonably healthy. (reasonably, lol) Laughing

1 x Pork Chop (heart Smart)
1 x Potato (decent size)
Cottage Cheese
Grated Cheese
Pineapple chunks
Your favorite Salad (Salad Kit, bag of already made salad)
Vinaigrette.

Method:

1) Pre heat the oven to 200 degrees C.

2) Next Chuck a spud in the microwave for 4 mins each side so its soft, and 5 mins each side if your cooking two.

3) Pork Chops, I put on salt, pepper and Moroccan spice to add some flavor while the spuds are microwaving.

4) When the spuds are done in the M/wave, wrap them in foil and put them on the top shelf at 200 Degrees C.

5) Cook the Pork chops as you like them.

6) Spuds will be done by the time your pork chops are finished (20-25 mins)

7) take your spud and open it up, chuck in a knob of butter, half a handful of grated cheese, a dollop of cottage cheese and on the top Pineapple chunks, season with pepper.

Cool server up your Pork chops and your favorite salad (I just use the Salad bags at Coles or Woolys, with a vinaigrette).

DONE! Awesome meal and reasonably healthy option.

Lamb Pizza

• 2 mountain bread rye wraps
• 1 Tablespoon Tomato paste (more if desired)
• Lamb cut into thin strips (I use lamb cutlets and cut the meat off - about 4 of them)
• 1 Lemon (you can substitute lime if you wish)
• Tablespoon of olive oil
• 2 cloves of garlic
• Half tablespoon of dried oregano OR rosemary
• Baby spinach leaves (as much as desired)
• Basil leaves
• Bocconcini or baby bocconcini (you can leave this out if you like). I use about 4 big balls or 6-8 baby bocconcini balls
• Greek yogurt, approx 1/2 cup. Can be less if you like.

Method:
1. Combine in a bowl the lamb, juice from half the lemon, olive oil, one glove of garlic crushed, and oregano or rosemary (your choice). Marinate in fridge approx 10-20 mins.
2. Take lamb out of fridge and chuck in frying pan on medium heat and cook till meat is brown and tender (don’t overcook though!).
3. Mix Greek yogurt with the other garlic clove (crushed) and about a tablespoon of water. Needs to be slightly runny. Set aside* pizza base - place one rye wrap on top of the other. Use a teeny bit of tomato paste at each corner to stick them together.
4. Spread thin layer of tomato paste over your base. Layer on baby spinach leaves, lamb, and bocconcini cheese.
5. Place in oven of 180 degrees for approx 10 - 15 mins.
6. Once you take base out of the oven, place the basil leaves (as much as desired) on top, and drizzle the garlic yogurt on top (as much as desired)
7. Squeeze the other half of the lemon on top.

Basil and Garlic stuffed chicken breast

Prep: 20 mins
Grill: 25 mins to 30 mins
Makes: 4 servingsView Nutrition Facts
Ingredients
• 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
• 2 tablespoons snipped fresh basil
• 1 tablespoon olive oil
• 2 cloves garlic, minced
• 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
• 1/2 teaspoon finely shredded lemon peel
• 2 tablespoons lemon juice
• 1 tablespoon olive oil
Directions
1. In a small bowl combine Parmesan cheese, basil, 1 tablespoon olive oil, and garlic; set aside.
2. Place each chicken breast half between 2 pieces of plastic wrap. Using the flat side of a meat mallet, pound lightly to about 1/8-inch thickness. Remove plastic wrap. Spread cheese mixture on chicken. Fold in sides of each chicken breast; roll up, pressing edges to seal. Fasten with wooden toothpicks.
3. For sauce, in a small bowl combine lemon peel, lemon juice, and 1 tablespoon olive oil; set aside.

Cover and grill for 25 to 30 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink (170 degrees F), brushing occasionally with sauce the last 10 minutes of grilling. (For a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium. Adjust grill for indirect cooking. Grill as above.)

Clean Satay Chicken

Satay Sauce
- Finely chop half a red onion
- 2 cloves garlic finely chopped
- 1 red chili chopped into little pieces
- 1 tbsp. ground cumin
- 1 tbsp. ground coriander
- 1 tbsp. coconut oil
- Juice from half a lime
- 2-3 heaped tbsp. crunchy peanut butter

- And I used tsp. soy sauce (naughty I know - up to you whether you include or not)

1. Heat fry pan with the coconut oil and then add cumin, coriander, red onion, garlic and cook for about a minute. Then add the peanut butter, coconut, chili, lime juice (and soy sauce if you choose) and about 1-2 cups water depending on how runny you want it and stir until thoroughly combined. Simmer for about 10mins on low heat.
2. While it’s simmering chop up a chicken breast and a bunch of yummy green vegetables whatever you want...
3. Then brown your chicken in a clean fry pan or wok, add vegetables and stir fry for a minute or so and then add your sauce and cook for another few minutes. I like mine vegetables crunchy so only cook for less than 5 minutes total. Serve and eat

HEALTHY MEATBALLS/RISSOLES

- 500g lean beef mince (I used a mixture of beef and pork)
- Half a carrot, grated
- A celery stick or 2, grated
- Half an onion, diced
- 2 cloves of garlic, crushed
- Handful of chopped parsley
- 1/2 cup almond meal (or bread crumbs if you are not worried about carbs)
- 1 egg
- Chilli flakes, to taste
- 1 teaspoon of meat seasoning (I use one that has cumin, Chilli, garlic and oregano in it)
- 1 tablespoon of Dijon mustard
- Salt & pepper to taste

Before cooking let the meatballs set in the fridge for about 30 mins or so!
I cook these on a tray with a wire so it has the opportunity to dip all the unwanted grossness out of the meatball and then doesn't have to sit it in. Set the grill to about 180 degrees and cook for around 5-7 each side until you think they are ready!

Clean Spinach and Cheese Roll

Put a packet of spinach leaves in a microwave-safe dish with a tiny splash of water. Microwave for 2 - 3 minutes. Spread 2 tbsp of low-fat cottage cheese along the middle of a light rye mountain bread wrap. Then put the spinach leaves on top of the cottage cheese. Put lots of cracked pepper ontop. Wrap up into a sausage roll shape. Bake in oven on moderate temperature for 10 - 20 mins or until the wrap is crisp and brown. So delicious! And just as tasty as a spinach and ricotta pastry from the bakery. One of my fave clean lunches!

Cook the hard vegetables and the tofu/chicken first, when these are browned and the hard vegetables are cooked through add the rest of the vegetables, the garlic, ginger, lemongrass and then the soy sauce and honey mixture. Add the cashews right at the last minute so they're still crunchy.
