Paleo Chicken & Coriander

For relish:
– 1/4 cup chopped coriander
– 1/4 cup of chopped red or yellow or combo of capsicum.
– just under 1/4 of olive oil. Your pick
– salt/ pepper
– crushed garlic
– a few tsp of lemon
– lemon zest
Mix all together and let sit for half hour.

Coriander aioli;
– make a mayo with a handful of coriander and roasted garlic.
When done, add quarter cup of chopped coriander some additional lemon zest and roasted garlic. Let sit and always taste for flavor.

For chicken;
– 2 tsp of cumin, sweet red pepper, garlic, salt, cardamon, oregano, honey
– 4 tsp of coconut aminos
– a gentle pour of EVOO or olive oil
– rough chop of coriander
– crushed garlic.
Mix all in a zip-lock bag and massage bag occasionally. I used 6 chicken legs and pocked with fork all around so we get flavor in. Or you will need two days to sit in bag.
Heat oven to 190 and bake for 25 min then turn legs and cook for 10 min, turn again and cook for 5-7 min.

To plate
Four aioli across plate, add chicken legs or whatever you like (I cut breast and thighs in half), pour relish across top and finish with some slice tomato in between. Voila and enjoy!

 

Give Some Love To Tania!

Signing up with Tee was my last ditch effort before getting a Gastric Lap Band.
Tee was the first person that made me believe that I could lose weight, get healthy and fit. I learnt how to eat and exercise and together with tee’s enthusiasm and patience I reached my goal of losing 28 kg and without a lap band!

Ps. Serge and I love you Tee for the beautiful generous person you are and for what you have taught me. Don’t ever change gorgeous lady xxoo

I’m on the cusp of turning 50 next year and yes, my metabolism is slowing down. My waistline naturally wants to expand with some of the food and beer I love and have loved for years and was putting on an average of 1kg a year. By the time I am 60 I’ll be 10-15kg heavier….in the waistline no doubt.

I’m fortunate to have a wife, Jacqui, who keeps reminding me of my diet and through the Geofit family we both started the Fat Flush 2 months ago. We lasted the month and both lost 5-6kg! Such joy and so rewarding after the hard work of resisting all the temptations of everyday life. It’s a great feeling when my pants get too big and the belt buckle tightens up a notch.

So since we finished the first month we sort of indulged with the beer and wine lifestyle but you know the great thing is we are still aware of what food we are putting in our mouths. Our meal plans and portions were somewhat similar so I guess we picked up the habit from the Fat Flush program although some of the favourite stodgy food creeps in, but less of it.

Now this week I have somehow been convinced by Jacqui to start another month so I jumped on the scales yesterday and was surprised I had only gained about half a kilo since we finished the first round. Jacqui had remained about the same so onwards to the next 5kg reduction for us.

Thanks Tee for introducing us to this way of thinking and thanks Sharon for the fun fitness program.
