Ever wondered what a healthy pantry looks like? And what exactly should you put on your shopping list? I really pride myself on having a healthy trolley at the end of my grocery shop, so much so that I get weird looks at the 3 bunches of kale, and huge pile of lettuce. So, here is my ultimate summer shopping list!
The reason I have named it ‘summer’ shopping list, is because my diet changes with the seasons. And of course, so does the food that available. In summer my diet is full of lots of lovely salads and fruit, whereas in winter its more hearty soups, stews and root vegetables.
Feel free to download, print and take with you shopping to get inspired to start eating healthy!
Today I invented this light summery salad to keep you nourished over the summer months. I had a bunch of mangoes in my fridge, so decide to use them as inspiration for this salad.
4 large cos lettuce leave, sliced finely
2 handfuls of Baby Spinach
1 small carrot sliced
6 cherry tomatoes cut in half
1/4 small zucchini, sliced and cut into ribbons
200 g cooked chicken breast
1/2 fresh mango
100 g feta
2 Tbsp pine nuts
1 Tbsp linseed’s
3 Tbsp Blueberry Vinegar (Or 2 Tbsp white whine vinegar and 5 fresh blueberries)
3 Tbsp Olive oil
1 Tsp chopped garlic
1 tsp chia seeds (optional)
Salt and pepper to taste
In a large bowl add the lettuce, spinach, carrot, tomatoes, zucchini ribbons, chicken breast, and mango. Toss. Cube feta, then crumble it over the salad. Add the pine nuts and linseed’s and toss again.
In a small food processed (or a small bowl) add the dressing ingredients. Blend until combined (or whisk until combined). Pour dressing over salad and serve.
