Your Weekly Feed #25 Healthy Options



How was your week?  We are getting used to our new normal and working out what’s what amidst a building site!  I’m delighted that the wardrobes are now finished (sans doors) so we can hang up our clothes yay! but now on to dinner instead!  We are up to 25 weeks of Your Weekly Feed and Kim & I are so delighted with all the fabulous meals that are being linked up. We really hope that you are getting some meal inspiration out of it and trying out some new things.  We’d love any feedback on what you’d like to see more of, less of or any changes we can make as it’s meant to be a resource for everyone who makes dinner!

From last week I’m loving the look of this Poached Coconut Chicken & Quinoa from The Purple Ladle

While this next one isn’t dinner it’s a fabulously healthy snack and perfect for lunch boxes Vegan Banana Muffins from Pretty Wee Things.

In keeping with the healthy theme going on here my contribution is a Nearly Peri Peri Baked Fish with Lemon Coriander Brown Rice.  It’s “nearly” because I didn’t use chilli so the girls would eat it but by all means add some hot chilli and make it Peri Peri. It’s not the most glamorous looking meal but it is really tasty, healthy not to mention pretty easy to make too.  I got the inspiration for this from a random cookbook the supermarket was handing out for free a few years ago and I found it again when packing up for the move, inspiration can strike anywhere!!
