Healthy eating challenge (transform in 30 days) requires a total bust from eating processed food, wheat, dairy…. and a focus on the best freshest wholefood available, whilst supporting the nutrition needs with wholefood fruit and veg capsules, and veg protein specially designed for use in smoothie type shakes.
Generally, my eating during these challenges is simple. Using everyday ingredients I have in the cupboard, and preparing by filling the cupboards and fridge with fresh wholefood ingredients.
To spice things up a bit, I also like to find some new combinations in taste, and family dinner ideas… juice recipes etc.
I found this seasons ‘taste magazine’ (local irish by the rte guide) on the shelf of my local shop, and after a quick browse noticed some tasty options I could try that aldo adherred the rules of my eating challenge.
Today I tried the chick pea and mango salad. I threw a quick glance over the ingredients before I did my food shop…. nearly remembered them all!!!.. except the broad beans, so I compromised with some baby salad leaves.
Anyway …. was a quick recipe, tasty and a little different. I would recommend you give it a go. It is also featured in Derval O’Rourke ‘food from the fast lane‘. I intend to review a few recipes from this springs taste magazine. Heres todays chickpea and mango salad!!
