Summer Vegetables, Chicken and Rice Dish

Regular readers will know that I love creating new meals with leftovers!

That is how this meal came along. I had half a chicken left after a Sunday roast. I normally end up cooking a Leftover Curry but as we are wanting to increase our vegetable intake I wanted to create a healthier leftovers meal.

I have combined the leftover chicken with plenty of vegetables and brown rice.

This is what I did...

Full of Veg Crustless Quiche - Family Favourites

Now that the hot weather and summer has arrived we long for lighter meals. Quiche is great for summer but as we all know pastry is not great for us and contains a lot of fat. But you can still enjoy quiche without the pastry! 

This week for my Family Favourites recipe I thought I would share my crustless quiche recipe. This is a great meal to cook if you need to use some eggs up. Now that we have three chickens we have an abundance of eggs so this really is a great meal! It is also great of you grow your own vegetables!

Not only is this an easy summer meal to make but is also full of vegetables and goodness.

This is what I did...

Sweetpea Pantry Review

Today I am sharing a delicious company, the Sweetpea Pantry.

Sweetpea Pantry have created some amazing baking kits. I am not usually a fan of cake and bake mixes however I did get really excited about Sweetpea Pantry mixes. You may be wondering what makes these mixes different. Sweetpea Pantry are not your regular mixes, they are 100% natural ingredients and contain superfoods!

Yes superfoods for kids!

Since we changed our diets we have been adding a lot of superfoods to our diets and I have been looking for ways to incorporate the goodness into meals and bakes that the children will also like. Sweetpea Pantry keep it simple, they only use 100% natural ingredients, cut down refined sugar and get as much goodness into each pack as possible.

Yumbox Review

We have been fans of  theYumbox since they went on the market. So when they got in touch with me and asked if I would like to review a box and host a giveaway for them I jumped at the chance!

If you do not know what a Yumbox is let me tell you...

Yumbox are lovely bento lunch boxes. The inserts that fit inside the boxes allow you to pack up a variety of foods in ideals portion sizes. The Yumbox is designed with a leak proof lid so you can pack yogurts or dips with no worries that it is going to leak into the other compartments. Therefore there is no need to use cling film or plastic bags or various different boxes. Everything can be packed in the one box. No only is this easier but will also save you money on food wraps and is also environmentally friendly as you will be reducing your waste.

Weekly Meal Plan - Week Commencing 29th June 2015

I will admit to last weeks meal plan going to pot!

I totally underestimated how tired I would be after a busy weekend in London. Unfortunately the tiredness lasted all week so at the end of the week we went for the easier option of eating out and buying meals.

This week I am feeling more myself and am back on it!

As it is such lovely weather there will definitely be a barbecue this week!

This is what we will be enjoying this week...
