Hi Guys,

So if you followed the power smoothie challenge you will be feeling pretty good right now ! Here is part 2 of my pre Christmas challenge, you should continue with the smoothies for breakfast but now add a power salad for lunch. If at your work place you are surrounded by the likes of Pret a Manger, Mac Donald’s and Pizza Hut you will need to prepare this salad the night before and take it into work with you.

Ingredients: Spinach, red, green or yellow pepper, clove of garlic, herbs fresh basil, tarragon, parsley and coriander just use what ever herbs you like, squash, olives, avocado, 20g quinoa, 20g lentils, 40g brown rice, celery, extra virgin olive oil, salt, pepper and green or red chills.

Directions: Add brown rice, quinoa and lentils to 300ml of cold water bring to the boil then simmer for 30 minutes or until all water has evaporated, then add a lid and let sit for 5 mins. In the mean time chop up all the other ingredients except the spinach and place in a bowel, once  brown rice, quinoa and lentils are ready mix together and add extra virgin olive oil and salt and pepper to taste not too much salt though.

Simple as that eat and enjoy, the extra fat you do not need will start dropping of you, good luck please post your comments.
