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!!!
