I am looking to get a more varied and healthy diet. I drink a lot on weekends and eat unhealthy. I definitely feel it's toll on my body. Hoping start a healthier lifestyle. Do you guys have any recipes with fresh foods that are spicy/tasty? I have found I like Spanish and greek recipes, but any recipes you guys have?

Green Pulled Chicken

Buy verde (tomatillo) salsa. Whole Foods carries Frontera which is good. Keep in pantry. For a quick meal throw boneless skinless chicken breasts into crock pot and pour over the salsa. Cook 6 hours on low. Break up the chicken (like they do with pulled pork.) Good with rice or as a filling for enchiladas.

If you're eating the salsa rather than cooking with it best to make it fresh. Unwrap, rinse and half tomatillas. Put into boiling water for about 4 min. Then add to blender with a little of the hot water, and cilantro, lime or lemon juice, and garlic or onion, and salt to taste. Blend till smooth and serve with chips or use as enchilada sauce.

Breaded mushrooms are one of my daughter’s favourites! Hope you like too :)

One or two portobello mushrooms per person. Top them with soft cheese/goat’s cheese and bread crumbs and pop them in the oven till warm! Quick and easy lunch or appetiser! Can serve it with peppers or tomatoes on too and maybe some garlic.

Hope this helps! :)

I am looking to get a more varied and healthy diet. I drink a lot on weekends and eat unhealthy. I definitely feel it's toll on my body. Hoping start a healthier lifestyle. Do you guys have any recipes with fresh foods that are spicy/tasty? I have found I like Spanish and greek recipes, but any recipes you guys have?

Ill share a recipe and some basic fairly healthy ideas that I enjoy




Chorizo breakfast burrito - (probably not the most healthy in the world but you could easily add things to get some extra nutrition)

brown off and cook ground chorizo in a pan, save the oils and set cooked ground chorizo aside

dice potatos in small cubes and fry them in the oil, occasionally add small amounts of water after the diced potatos have gained a reddish color from the chorizo oils and cover for a steaming effect as they absorb the water and oil




remove tender spicey diced potatos and set aside


scramble some eggs in the pan adding butter , salt and pepper to your liking then as they finish add the chorizo and potatos to reheat



brown up some flour tortillas , add cheese or peppers or veggies to your liking and tastes and the breakfast filling


_________


search a basic chili recipe and perfect it, i can give my favorite but its fairly basic compared to what most people seem to enjoy but its pretty much just spices, meat and veggies


and you can even make some pretty delicious veggie chilis (you can also google south western chicken tortilla soup)

______


taco salad is always an easy and healthy meal that you can customize to your tastes

also easy enough to just google the basic elements and perfect yourself

_______


blackened salmon is a good choice for people who like spicey fish and its pretty much just putting some cajun on the outside and cooking it in a pan

you can kinda adhere it with oil and maybe add some salt and onion powder or garlic powder to the cajun mixture to fit your tastes


goes well with salad
________

lastly it may not be spicey, but if you get a pressure cooker you can easily make home cooked roasts with healthy veggies as sides without much work

I'll give you the only spicy recipe I know. I fix myself a breakfast like that.

Take an egg and add half teaspoon of salt mixed with half teaspoon of chili powder.

Beat the egg nicely with the salt and chili powder.

Take two slices of bread and dip them in the egg and put it in the frying pan.

In between the two slices of bread or at least on one slice, put a slice of cheese.

Toast the bread as you see fit with the cheese in between.

Once done, you get an egg and cheese toast.

If you add some bacon or sausages, that's a plus.

Voila. Breakfast is served.

Note: you can adjust the salt and chili powder as much or as little as you want.

Experiment with it. Hope you have fun :)

I know it's amateur stuff. But hey, you asked.

Make a sambal (a paste containing tomatoes, red/Thai chilli pepper, ginger, garlic, shallots (not onions, too smelly if kept in the fridge too long), and maybe some lime juice, etc.). You can store this in the fridge for a couple of weeks and use in any cooking/dishes.
