Dare To Be Healthy

Posts Tagged ‘Lime juice

I would usually add some spices and chilli to the salsa but as its part of the detox plan, only using herbs and honey that have a detox benefit.

 

2 chicken breast, sliced

Handful of parsley, chopped

Handful of coriander, chopped

3 tomatoes, finely diced

½ red onion, diced

2 tbsp. olive oil

Juice of 1 lime

1 red pepper, finely diced

1 green pepper, finely diced

½ tsp. manuka honey

Pinch of freshly ground black pepper

Put all the ingredients except the chicken and half the coriander and oil, in a bowl. Add the honey and lime juice. Toss all together and refrigerate for about 30 minutes. Marinate the chicken in the remaining oil and chopped coriander, and grill (you can bake in the oven if preferred). Serve the chicken when ready with the tomato salsa.

Simple salad and dressing which you can make yourself, or get a bag of your favourite salad from the stores.

Handful of spinach

Handful watercress

½ red pepper, chopped

5 cherry tomatoes (cut in half)

1/4 beetroot, chopped or shredded

4 radishes, grated

2 fillets of fish (ideally salmon or tuna but any fish of your choice would work)

1 tsp. olive oil

Coarse ground black pepper

1 lime

1 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil

Baste the fish with the olive and season with the black pepper, bake in the oven for 15 minutes or until cooked (or you could steam if you prefer). Place the salad ingredients on a plate or salad bowl. Add the extra virgin olive oil and lime juice, and toss. Add the fish when cooked, enjoy. Remember this is part of the detox programme; we wouldn’t want to add a lot of seasoning to the dressing, just keep it simple and natural to get the full benefits of the detox.
