The Healthy Evening Meal: Courgetti

Okay so I don't eat pasta (AND I'm Italian - whaaaaat) but I do eat this rather delicious 'courgetti' dish. Topped with herb infused tomatoes and cheese, this dish is perfect if you're looking to eat less carbohydrates, which can often be the reason for bloating. The following evening I had it again - this time with chicken - and it was much better, so I'd recommend cooking up some chicken to have with it! If you have any healthy meal recipes please leave them below!

Date Night: Tapas

I tried squid for the first time the other night. Kinda squishy, isn't it? Not as flavoury as I had hoped. Still, the rest of the tapas Ciaran and I had last Tuesday was delicious. As an Italian, anywhere that gives you a complimentary pot of olives upon arrival has a place reserved in my heart. We went to a local tapas bar and the service was great! We ended up sharing our table with a quirky hippy couple who didn't have anywhere to sit (it's a tiny place) but I happily agreed to let them sit at our table while the Cassidy and I chatted about different countries and where we'd each like to travel (Venice, plz). I wanna go again, just thinking about it is making me hungry.

The Breakfast Club: Poached Eggs and Rocket

Sometimes a bowl of museli just doesn't cut it in the mornings. Yes, raspberries are fruit of the gods and yes, they make my cereal Instagram worthy but a few times a week I wake up in the mood for something a little more savoury.
A little like a brother of Eggs Benedicts, I whipped up this poached egg, rocket and chutney combo on a sliced Subway-style roll. Was it delicious? Yep. And no doubt it had a hell of a lot less sugars too (you have to be careful with some of the museli knocking around...)
Give it a try, see what you think.
