Eating healthy can be quite tricky when you have a busy lifestyle , as a chef i don’t really have time to cook between my shifts ( i get a 2 hour break between 9 in the morning to 10 at night), so it is very often that we buy frozen pizza or get takeaways . But i am trying to stop this bad habit , for for a financial reason as takeaway food is expensive but also for the health as i put on a few kilos over the past few years . I am trying to cook ingredients like quinoa or bulgur wheat as it is healthy and quite filling because diet food doesn’t fill me up and when working with food , you get the temptation to pick. So the yesterday i had a lunch using what i found in my fridge and it is very healthy and filling . So try the recipe and give any feedback.
