Basil & Lemon Bulgar Wheat

Basil & Lemon Bulgar Wheat
Bulgar Wheat is a source of nutrition I consider to be clean; it will also still give you the kick of carb you need every so often. Simply adding some Basil and Lemon can give it some flavour and be a great addition to any meal. It’s quick to prep and cook, which is what […]

Chicken Teriyaki With Rice & Veggies

Chicken Teriyaki With Rice & Veggies
This is the juiciest chicken recipe I have!  Cooking the chicken amongst the different ingredients keeps it flavoursome. This recipe is fairly quick to make, once you have the prep done and if you make enough it can be kept for a couple of days. My suggestion is having it cold for lunch the next […]
