INGREDIENTS

Serves one

2 medium chicken fillets (1 for dinner, 1 for lunch tomorrow)
1/4 fresh pineapple

For the Marinade
Juice of 2 limes or 1 lemon (keep limes or lemons to grill)
1 tablespoons of olive oil
A small handful of coriander, roughly chopped
A small handful of mint, roughly chopped
1 clove of garlic, finely chopped
Salt and pepper

Serve with:
1/2 avocado, sliced
1/2 tablespoon sesame seeds
2/3 of the Broccoli Rice Tabbouleh

Suitable for:
Breakfast | Lunch | Dinner | Snack

Vegetarian and other options
You could swap out the chicken for other animal proteins such as fish or lean red meat. Tofu is another option. Alternatively, you could add other vegetables to your skewers such as mushrooms, capsicum and zucchini. 

METHOD

Place the chicken fillets in metal or glass dish or snaplock bag. Put all marinade ingredients in a jar and shake well. Pour over chicken and leave overnight to marinate – alternatively leave for 30 minutes minimum.

Cut the pineapple into rings and then pieces. Cut one of the chicken fillets into pieces.  Thread the chicken and pineapple onto bamboo skewers. Cook over BBQ or grill.

Grill lime pieces to caramalise and use the extra juice to squeeze over chicken.

At the same time as you cook your skewers, BBQ or grill your remaining chicken fillet. Once it is cooked and cooled, shred and place in an airtight container for the Goodness Bowl on Day Two.

Serve with Broccoli Rice Tabouli, sliced avocado and sesame seeds.

NOTES

We like to use organic, free range chicken where possible. If you choose to change the protein option to fish, lean read meat or tofu, marinate as we have done with the chicken. Alternatively if you choose to use extra vegetables such as mushrooms, capsicum and zucchini then you can skip the marinating  and instead use the marinade to pour on after cooking the skewers. 

Pineapple is high in vitamin C, an essential skin nutrient, and in anti-oxidants, which help fight free-radicals which can cause premature ageing.

 

CARRY-OVER NOTES
The Bestow way is to make once and eat twice!

Use one chicken fillet for your Chicken Skewers. Cook the second fillet at the same time as your skewers, then cool, shred and place in an airtight container in the fridge for your Goodness Bowl on Day 2.

INGREDIENTS

Serves one

1/2 medium sized sweet potato, cut into chunks and roasted
1/2 to 1 cup of spinach, lettuce or kale leaves
75 grams of smoked salmon
A dollop of Creamy Avo Sauce
1/2 cup of brown rice, cooked
1 tablespoon of sauerkraut
1/2 cup of broccoli florets, blanched
Himalayan Salt
Cracked Black Pepper

Suitable for:
Lunch

Vegetarian and other options 
We have used salmon today, however, any other animal or plant based protein works well in a bowl. Black beans are a particular favourite plant-based protein alternative of ours.

METHOD

Arrange the ingredients in a bowl and add a dollop of Creamy Avo Sauce to serve. Season with salt and pepper.

NOTES

These bowls are a delightful way to eat and as the week goes on you will become experts at creating them! They really are easy and make for an interesting and colourful meal that provides your body with loads of vitamins and nutrients to support your body through the cleanse. This one in particular is full of healthy fats, with avocado and smoked salmon being the heroes here.

Remember, Goodness Bowls lend themselves to a range of dietary requirements and although we have served it with salmon you can easily exchange this for a plant based protein option to create a delicious lunch bowl suitable for those who are vegetarian or vegan.

INGREDIENTS

DRY INGREDIENTS
1 cup of buckwheat groats (or 1 and 1/2 cups if you are not using quinoa puffs)
1/2 cup of quinoa puffs (optional)
1 cup of coconut threads
1/2 cup of sliced almonds or other nuts (not cashews or peanuts)
1/4 cup of sunflower seeds
1/2 teaspoon of Himalayan or sea salt

LIQUID INGREDIENTS
1/4 cup of coconut oil, melted
1-2 tablespoons of rice syrup or honey
3 tablespoons of cacao powder
1 tablespoon of tahini
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
1 teaspoon of cinnamon

TO SERVE PER PERSON
1 golden kiwifruit
1/2 cup of blueberries, fresh or frozen
1/4 cup of dairy free coconut yoghurt
1 teaspoon of Bestow Berry Beautiful
Serve with your favourite nut or seed milk

Suitable for:
Breakfast | Lunch | Dinner | Snack

METHOD

Preheat oven to 150 degrees celsius.
Place all the dry ingredients in a large bowl and stir to combine.
Melt the coconut oil by placing a smaller bowl into a larger bowl of hot water or by gently heating in a small pot over a low heat.
Mix together all the liquid ingredients in a medium sized bowl. Pour over the dry ingredients and mix well. It will be sticky, chocolatey and clumpy.
Line a baking tray with baking paper and spread out your granola as evenly as possible.
Bake for 20 minutes, remove from the oven and allow to cool completely.
Break up the granola with your hands and place in an airtight container or lidded jar to be used when needed.

Serve 1/2 cup of granola with your favourite milk, yoghurt and fresh fruit such as golden kiwifruit and blueberries.

NOTES

These Buckwheat Granola Clusters also make a great snack, especially as a mid-afternoon pick me up! This is another ‘bressert’ and feels so treaty but it is super nutritious and skin friendly!

CARRY-OVER NOTES
The Bestow way is to make once and eat twice!

You will use 1 cup of granola this week (1/2 cup for breakfast on Day Three and another 1/2 cup for breakfast on Day Four) and then the rest is for you to use either for breakfasts after the cleanse or as a snack option. It will keep in a sealed container.
