Secret Model Diet?
In my previous post I explained that I don’t solely live on clean eating brownies, cakes and the such. I know it might look like it, as most of the recipes on my blog are sweet, chocolaty recipes (yay!). BUT .. this is not the case. I think I would grow huge if all my meals would exist of these indulgencies!
So what ìs the case? Do I live off of some kind of secret model diet? Nope, not at all. Actually, my dinners are quite simple and straightforward. Maybe they are too straightforward to share them here with you.
Simple, Lean and Clean
Even though, I am going to share my ‘simple’ everyday recipes here with you, to give you an idea of what kind of clean, lean, healthy, model-proof meals you can prepare at dinner or lunch. 99% of these recipes will also be gluten- and lactose free and all of them will be processed sugar free. I vary between vegan, vegetarian, raw and carnivore recipes.
I Don’t Like Cold Food
I haven’t share my dinners a lot yet, as when I come home in the evening, it is already late and I just want to have dinner quick (hungry model coming your way!). Taking a picture to go with the recipe would reeeeally test my patience.
furthermore: I don’t like cold food! Taking a picture of my food means my food will be cold, right? How the beep do other food bloggers do this?! And how about the lightning? During winter time it is dark 2 or 3 hours before I even start thinking about my dinner! Maybe other food bloggers have dinner in the early afternoon? Swap lunch for dinner? Who knows …
Anyway, here is my recipe for a low carb, low fat, gluten free, grain free, carnivore zucchini noodle dinner (which I had for lunch, so it would be perfect for lunch as well!):
- 1 zucchini
- 4 pieces sundried tomatoes
- 3.4 oz chicken filet, so without skin or bones (equals 100 gram). Tip: use free range chicken that has been fed organic
- 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
- 1/4 teaspoon thyme
- 1/4 teaspoon coriander
- pinch of fine sea salt
- Boil the chicken in water. It's ready when the inside has become white.
- Drain and set aside while you cover the pan to keep the chicken warm.
- Wash the zucchini, cut off the tops and spiralize the zucchini by using the blade with the smallest spacing.
- 'Fry' the garlic in a thin layer of water in a pan and add the zucchini noodles, sundried tomatoes, herbs and salt.
- As soon as the zucchini noodles are steamed and soft, turn down the heat and mix the chicken in.
- Ready to serve!
