Lime and Chilli Chicken With Black Rice

I don't know what it is, but the combination of lime, chilli and coriander gets me juicy! It smells like summer, feels fresh and healthy, and tastes the tits. 

The cool thing is that these three ingredients go so well with any "meat dish" - pork, lamb, beef, chicken, prawn or fish! I even had it with kangaroo a few nights back. You just marinade whatever meat you choose in these three ingredients plus some garlic, olive oil, salt and pepper and BANG, you're on! 

In this recipe, I've used chicken and matched it with an avocado and tomato salad and some deliciously healthy black rice! Gosh, I guess this is a sign I'm getting old! Saturday night in with a meal for one?? haha!

Paleo Nutty Bread

Is this the sexiest thing you've ever laid eyes on? Yeah, I think so. Judging by the instant "Give Me That Now" response that I got through Instagram when I first posted it, I know you've been hanging for this one...

My inspiration for this recipe is an AWESOME cafe in Newcastle, Australia called Talulah Bar where I recently had breakfast and after tasting their one, I came up with my own take on it! Here you go!

High in heart healthy fats and protein, put simply, you need this in your life!

Monday night, I'm home late from work, my mind switches to dinner. I'm exhausted and looking for a quick meal. And then I dream up this bad boy - Grilled Chilli Lime Chicken! In the words of Borat... "Great Success!"

Laid over a simple, green salad consisting of kale, spinach leaves, cherry tomatoes and avocado, it took only 15 minutes to do up and tasted a dream. 

PLEAASEEEE try this one next time you're feeling take-out but want to keep on "the health train".

Why 'Weight' For Good Sleep?

In my eBook, 'The 14 Non-Diet Fat Loss Hacks', I discussed how being tired and under-slept can cause you to gain weight. The disturbance to both our physiology and psychology when we are fatigued often leads to us craving high-energy junk foods and feeling super-sluggish. This is the perfect recipe for weight gain and all the associated lifestyle conditions that flow from there. Yep, diabetes, heart disease, arthritis and many more. 

But it turns out that that tiredness not only causes weight gain and a bursting belly, but the reverse it also true. Weight gain actually causes tiredness, more specifically, fatigue directly due to poorer sleep. That's a classic definition of a vicious cycle.

100 Things To Do Instead Of Watching TV

Television Viewing: So What?

What's the issue with a little relaxation? Short answer is... nothing. The issue is when relaxation is synonymous with watching television for hours on end. Why? Because:

  • 62.8% of Australians are overweight or obese; that's close to 2/3 of us;
  • 27.5% fit the 'obese' category;
  • The prevalence of overweight and obesity is increasing steadily, up from 56.3% in 1995;
  • Men struggle with weight management at higher rates than women: The latest stats show overweight and obesity affects 69.7% of men compared to 55.7% of women.

It's fairly well known that the build up of body fat, particularly around the abdomen where men store it, is linked with many diseases including heart disease, cancer, diabetes and arthritis. This concerns me...
