Chicken-baby/malabar spinach tomato stir-fry

This stir-fry is so quick that you won’t want to make eggs anymore! Have it over boiled quinoa and peas as a high protein meal after weight-training. This is an auto- immune friendly meal. ( peas can be omitted if you can’t tolerate them.)

You need:

  • 250g chicken breast julienned, defrosted.
  • 2 tbsps of tomato paste/pasata
  • 1/2 an onion chopped
  • 150g if baby or Malabar spinach chopped
  • 1/2 tsp pink salt
  • 1/2 tsp’s each of black and white pepper
  • 1/2 tsp cumin powder
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp ginger powder
  • 2 capfuls of balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tbsps sesame oil.

A little water.

In a wok, heat 2 tbsps of sesame oil for 30 seconds. Add the onion and let it brown on a low heat. Once the edges start to turn golden, add all of the spices and salt. Give it a good stir and add in the washed chicken julienne. Stir around to coat with the spices. You will notice that the oil is drying up. In that case, add a little water so chicken doesn’t burn and cooks to be tender. Keep flipping and storing the chicken till it changes colour. Add a little more water if needed. Once chicken is cooked through, add 2 tbsps of tomato paste and 2 capfuls of balsamic vinegar. Give it all a stir again. Now add in the washed and chopped spinach. Stir and flip around so it mixes into the chicken, and cover on a low heat and let cook for 2 mins.

That’s it! Turn off the heat.

Enjoy 4 serving spoons of boiled quinoa-peas with 4 serving spoons of the chicken spinach stir-fry.

Is there such a thing as super-food?

Dear Reader,
You will have noticed that I haven’t put many pictures of fruit and vegetables on my website. Albeit: I’ve pictures up of delicious desserts and flamboyant, fancy coffee!

Depending on the occasion, they all are superfoods! Fruit and veggies, cake and coffee. Super food can be subjective.

Yes. Of course wellness and well-being are all about eating whole foods first. The primary sources of nutrition that are always superfoods are those grown in the sun, soil and on trees; that have been made with the help of birds, butterflies and bees.

If you sign-up for coaching sessions for any of of the problems mentioned on the mind-map, natural superfoods are what you will be eating.
No doubt.

However food is medicine. The poison is in the dose. And we are more than just a body. Coaching through a Being-Well lens means knowing when to have your cake guilt-free, because I know how hard it is to make switches in your diet when you eat for health’s sake. Giving up on your daily biscuit at tea time can be depressing. It weighs on your mental health. It can even lead to a tantrum.

If you learn not to gratify your desires instantly, and know the occasions of when you can have creamy, dreamy pudding, then temptations won’t govern your mind. Our sessions together will help train your mind to be patient by recognising your triggers and eat with intention to heal.
