Tomato Mussels and Baked Whole Snapper

Summer means many, many things to us men. Sunshine, outdoor activities and seafood! Or is the seafood just me? 

When the temperature soars, I love to lighten up my food choices so seafood and salads really seem to fit the bill. There's nothing worse than feeling heavy and bloated when you're at the beach. 

Here I have put together an absolute banger for you - Tomato Mussels and Baked Whole Snapper.

Summer means many, many things to us men. Sunshine, outdoor activities and seafood! Or is the seafood just me? 

When the temperature soars, I love to lighten up my food choices so seafood and salads really seem to fit the bill. There's nothing worse than feeling heavy and bloated when you're at the beach. 

Here I have put together an absolute banger for you - Tomato Mussels and Baked Whole Snapper. It's super-healthy, super-easy and in fact quite affordable to make given this type of meal would probably cost you about $60-70 at a seafood restaurant. Here, you can make it at home for about $35.

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!

Coffee-Infused Chia Pods

I love coffee and I'm an advocate of the benefits of caffeine in moderate amounts. Pair it with the delicious texture of chia seeds and you've got the perfect snack or dessert. 

So what are chia seeds? Derived from the South American plant Salvia Hispanica, chia seeds give true bang for their buck in a nutrient sense. In fact, 30g of chia provides around 12g of fibre, nearly 5g of protein and 5g of Omega-3 healthy heart fat! Add to this the fact that they are a super-antioxidant food and at only a moderate calorie contribution, there's a reason why the popularity of this innocuous little bugger has spiked. 

When you see chia pods in a supermarket being charged at around $5 a small tub, it would be right to assume that there's a fair bit to making them. NOT SO! I want you to try making this simple recipe! The chia forms a gel when soaked in a liquid and takes on the flavours of whatever you submerge it in. GET AMONGST!!!

Berry Bash Bowl

I remember the first "bowl" I ever had was in Bali at the famous Nalu Bowls near Single Fin in Uluwatu. I'd always thought of these as kind of 'girly' but one taste got me hooked. I'd joined the "superfood rebellion". Haha! Not...

I've got to say, I don't really believe in the concept of superfoods being magic silver bullets to health as that little magazine in the Sunday paper may have you believe. I do however believe in nutrient density and the fact that some foods are just packed with goodness if you eat them in their rawest state. 

The thing about acai, chia and other bowls is that in Australia, they cost you and arm and a leg to buy. Interestingly though, when you have the ingredients, they are super easy to make and the PERFECT anecdote for a hot summer day. 

To demo what I mean, check out this simple recipe below...
