After a long week, don’t we all deserve a little indulgence? Our health shouldn’t be the sacrifice as we dive for the fried fast food. There are ways, though a little more difficult than pulling up to the nearest drive through, to recreate your favorite indulgences at a fraction of the calories. My go-to recipe comes from Serena at Domesticate Me for her crispy baked chicken nuggets. Girl has tried and tried and figured out how to create the perfect crispiness while cutting the calories and fat.
Gone are the days when I could mumble something about not feeling well and, with a snap of my fingers, my mom shows up with her delicious chicken noodle soup as the cure. Nope, now it’s city living where if you’re sick, you can either call your mom and hope she makes the 2 hour drive just for soup, go to the closest grocery store and pick out a can, or invest 45 minutes and create days’ worth of your very own sickness curing soup.
They say the Mediterranean diet is your one way ticket to health and happiness. So, on my adventure of becoming a healthier eater (note: Double Coconut Bars) I decided to dive into my heritage and create a dish with no carbs, lots of protein, lots of flavour, all using Mediterranean inspired ingredients.
