Carribean curried turkey and brown rice with black eyed peas

Afternoon Foodies,

I just cannot believe September is upon us already!? Not that I’m complaining because it’s the start of my favourite time of year! Don’t get me wrong, I love the summertime as sporadic as it’s sunshine may be but there is something about autumn that I find so miraculously magical. The feeling of the first cool breeze and the smell of autumnal rain just fills me with delight – warm socks, knitted jumpers, hot drinks and mulled beverages  will slowly ease themselves so comfortably back into our days – then of course there are the warm hues of the harvest season produce and all those glorious tummy warming edible concoctions that go with it. So for now as we are still amidst the transition of summer and autumn, here is one of my favourite dishes that will warm your soul on those ever darkening evenings but still has the vibrant flavours of sunshine and far away warmer climes. 

Ingredients:

Turkey breast – 400g

Red chilli – 2 chopped 

Onion – 1 diced 

Garlic – 3 cloves,chopped

Creamed coconut – half a block chopped finely 

Thyme – 1 tablespoon

Dunns river All purpose seasoning – 2 tablespoons

Jamaican curry powder – 2 tablespoons 

Tomato – 2 chopped into quarters

Olive oil 

Salt and pepper 

Brown rice – 1 cup

1 tin of black eyed peas 


Method: 

Start by putting the All purpose seasoning,curry powder,creamed coconut,onions,garlic,chilli,tomatoes,rhyme,salt and pepper and a tablespoon of olive oil in a mixing bowl and combine all together until it makes a paste. Seal the turkey in a saucepan in a little coconut oil then add to the mixing bowl of paste and rub into the meat until covered in the paste. Add a little more coconut oil to the saucepan and add the ingredients,  on a medium heat, stirring frequently to cook the spices lightly. Add about 2/3 cup of water, bring to the boil then cover and simmer while you cook the rice. 

For the rice heat some oil in a saucepan, add the dry rice and the other half of the creamed coconut block and stir together. Drain a little of the water in the black eyed peas away then pour the entire contents of the tin on the rice. Boil until the water reaches surface of the rice level then cover and turn off the heat  (the rice will then steam until ready and makes perfect rice everytime) it will usually take around 20 mins and by this time the curry should also be ready.

This dish is perfect alternative for takeout food, it’s so quick and easy and oozing with flavour! It’s more traditionally made with on the bone meat – alternative, more fatty oils would be used and served with bread or fried dumplings but there is now no reason it cannot be enjoyed in all its flavour glory in this cleaner-leaner way.

Enjoy!

Yoga 

Hey guys! So just a quick post to share my daily yoga routine with you all. I’ve always been a fan of a little home self taught yoga from quite a young age and along with the ‘Sun salutation’ I found this online and it’s amazing after a workout to stretch your entire body out! 

  I always feel so aligned afterwards, if that sounds crazy!? But give it a go – if you have a reasonable amount of flexibility to start with then it’s a good routine, if not then maybe start with doing the ‘sun salutation’ once or twice a day for a month and you will be surprised how much of a difference it will make. 


Peace out yogi bears! ✌🏽️

Changes for life.

Anyone seriously wanting to change their health and lifestyle has to start at home, to eat well you need to not only eat healthy but make sure you buy healthy.I know it sounds obvious but alot of people just switch healthy meals on the go and come home to cupboards full of sweet snacks, processed foods and white carbs.

Eating and buying healthy food doesn’t have to be expensive at all, dont be afraid to use several supermarkets and stalls to get deals and everything you need.
People are always asking me how much I spend on food a week and its always half of what others spend buying quick meals and sugary snacks.

Shop around, plan meals,keep it clean and you will be suprised how much cheaper it is to eat healthy! Not to mention the benefits you will feel on the inside!
