Oozing chicken & bacon quesadilla with sour cream, guacamole and tomato salsa

chicken bacon quesadilla sour cream guacamole tomato salsa

Crispy creamy deliciousness

I came up with this recipe when I came home after a workout and was just looking for something nice, balancedΒ and easy, and had some tortillas left to use. I ended up liking the quesadilla so much that I made another one the day after and finally decided to also share it with you πŸ™‚

In this case, the bacon really adds a little something to the whole dish and works perfectly with cheese, green peppers and chicken. Top it with sour cream and you’re close to food heaven. I really think you can never go wrong with creamy guacamole and the tomato salsa just adds lightness to the whole dish.

As I said, this is quite balanced, you have lots of proteins from chicken and cheese, good fatty acids from guacamole and the plenty of veggies in the quesadilla, salsa and guacamole. Also, I used a whole wheat tortilla to make the whole dish even more wholesome. If you want to step it up further, serve with salad on the side.

Ultimately satisfying, quick, super seedy rye bread with carrot

rye bread super easy

Super healthy, super quick, super delicious

So it’s been pretty busy at work lately which is why I didn’t manage to post any new recipes in the past weeks (that doesn’t mean I didn’t keep on trying new recipe ideas of course!).

I went to see a friend one weekend and her mum was talking about a super quick and easy bread baking recipe which didn’t require sourdough nor time for proving, which got me interested in the first place, because while I like baking and making food from scratch, baking bread always seemed like something for which you need a whole afternoon or so, which was quite deterrent. Also, when looking at the ingredient list on store-bought bread I always wondered why so many stabilizers, colorants etc. had to go into it. I admit to being a bit overly concerned in this respect, but I don’t want any of that stuff in my food.

This bread is the solution! It’s no-frills, just clean and good-for-you ingredients. Flax seeds, pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds provide plenty of omega-3 fatty acids, proteins and nutrients, like magnesium, manganese, Β copper etc. while carrot (well hello, vitamin A and friends) also ensures that the bread doesn’t dry out. It tastes absolutely delicious, will last for a week or maybe even longer and, that’s the best part, it’s so satisfying that you won’t have the desire to eat anything more for the next few hours (at least that’s how I feel).

I’m sure you can tell I’m really into this bread recipe and I’ve been baking it around once a week lately. If you don’t need the whole loaf at once, just slice the bread, freeze it and just toast it until crispy when needed πŸ™‚

The greatest thing: it takes you only 15 minutes to prepare the dough, no proving or similar required.

Now that I’ve finished my hymn of praise for the bread, let’s go in medias res πŸ™‚

Incredible sake sashimi salad with sesame, avocado and mango dressing

Sake sashimi salad avocado mango dressing

Incredibly fragrant, healthy and amazing

Guys, I’m super psyched about this recipe! It’s been on my mind for quite a while but I never managed to try it out until this week for a date night. To be honest, it’s even better than I had imagined. The marinated sake sashimi is amazing by itself, but combine it with crunchy veggies, creamy avocado and this incredible fruity mango dressing and it will lead you right into food heaven! The mango dressing is so delicious that I ended up eating some of it without anything else because it’s so delicious πŸ™‚ Needless to say, this is super healthy too, as you have your lean protein and ton of veggies. Perfect for a light lunch or dinner (may want to make a bit more in this case) or (as I did) serve as a starter.

There is not much that could possible go wrong here, just make sure you have enough time to marinate the salmon properly (i.e. at least 1.5 hours in the fridge).

Ok, I’m so excited about this recipe, I just want to get started! πŸ™‚
