My day on a plate + free Chicken Korma recipe!

I am often asked what a 'day on my plate' looks like in my life.

A request that is never easy to answer, as I love variety in my life and follow a flexible dieting approach.

Once upon a time, I would eat the same foods over and over (nothing wrong with that!), however I have since followed a more flexible approach with my nutrition which is truly perfect for my lifestyle. 

This is what an average day on the plate looks like...

A 'typical' day for me always starts with my Snicker Oats, a combination of my favourite protein powder, ancient grain oats, nuts and maple syrup- the perfect way to start the day.

I will usually workout after this and have a small snack or shake- on the run getting the kids to school. 

Around 10am...
I have a coffee with a snack of either banana bread, a brownie or treat of some sort- to get me through the mid-morning meetings. 

For lunch...
I have left over meal prepped food. Either a savoury mince, butter chicken or stir fry. (If I have been slack and not prepared a wrap earlier.)
 
Around 5pm...
We have dinner fairly early (5pm-ish) and I have a dessert around 8pm before bed.
Tonight's dinner happened to be Chicken Korma, which is one of the recipes inside THE BOD's upcoming brand-new recipe book, THE BOD Fuel!

  • 600g chicken breast fillets
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1 medium onion (150g), chopped finely
  • 5 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon ground cardamom
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon chilli powder
  • 1 teaspoon garam masala
  • ½ teaspoon ground allspice
  • ½ teaspoon fine Himalayan salt
  • 200g green beans, trimmed, halved lengthways
  • 1 medium red capsicum (200g), cut into long thin strips
  • ½ cup (140g) Sugar-free Tomato Sauce

  • 270ml can light coconut milk
  • ½ cup (75g) roasted unsalted cashews, chopped
  • ½ cup coarsely chopped fresh coriander
  • ½ cup reduced-fat Greek-style yoghurt

METHOD

  1. Trim chicken of any fat, then cut into 4cm pieces.
  2. Heat coconut oil in a large saucepan over medium heat; cook onion and garlic, stirring, for 3 minutes or until softened. Add spices and salt; cook, stirring, for 1 minute or until fragrant. Add vegetables and chicken; stir to coat in spices.
  3. Add tomato sauce, stock, coconut milk and half the cashews; bring to a gentle simmer. Reduce heat to low; cook for 15 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.
  4. Remove from heat and stir in half the coriander.
  5. Top korma with yoghurt and remaining cashews and coriander; serve with brown rice, if you like.

MIX IT UP
For a vegetarian version of the korma, replace the chicken with 250g tofu cut into 4cm pieces, the chicken stock with vegetable stock, and add additional vegetables such as 350g broccoli, cut into florets, and a sliced carrot.

MEAL PREP
Chicken Korma can be made to the end of step 3 up to 2 days ahead; store in an airtight container in the fridge or freeze for up to 1 month.
