Clean meal ideas

If you're a regular reader you'll know that for the past 5/6 years I've suffered with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) after countless visits to the doctors only to be sent away with various medication to control the issue rather than resolve it I'd had enough.

I've tried countless remedies and last week I took the matter into my own hands. After eating clean before my hen do in Barcelona I decided to take it up again. I've still been treating myself occasionally but on the whole I think I've been pretty good. I've stayed away from bread and pasta and have been drinking a lot of green tea & water.

Here are a few meals that I've been enjoying (excuse the picture quality, the lighting is awful in our house and these were taken on my iphone).

Honey roast salmon and spinach omelette with homemade guacamole & green tea.

This one was made on a whim one evening after grabbing some bits of honey roast salmon that were reduced in the Co-op. I made an omelette using 3 eggs and a handful of spinach and cooked it i some coconut oil. The guacamole was simply mashed avocado and a squeeze of lime juice. It was delicious and definitely one I'll be making again

Lemon and garlic chicken with mashed sweet potato and kale.

This one was so simple and packed full of flavour. I simply crushed some garlic that I smothered on top of the chicken breast, popped some lemon juice and coconut oil on top and baked until the juices ran clear. I served it with some boiled kale and mashed sweet potato. I honestly wasn't expecting much from this dish but it was so nice! The chicken was so lovely and tender too,

Stuffed mushrooms with baby spinach salad

I'm afraid these aren't my own creation they are from Aldi but they are amazing! They're stuffed with cream cheese, red onion chutney and topped with breadcrumbs and are only 130 odd calories each. Baked them for 20 mins and I served them with a simple baby spinach and baby tomato salad with balsamic dressing.

Lemon and garlic chicken with Uncle Ben's Mexican rice

This is the same chicken recipe as above but I served it with Uncle Ben's Mexican rice. It such a quick and easy meal!

Fluffy American pancakes

These were a Sunday treat but as they're homemade I still think that their healthy. I love making these pancakes on the odd occasion and I served these with fresh berries and honey.

So there you have it, a few, super simple and tasty meal ideas if you're looking for some healthy dinner (and dessert) inspiration.
