Salad Of Endive & Chili Chicken

 

Salad Of Endive & Chili Chicken

This was such a pleasant salad to enjoy early in the day.
The colors, flavors and lightness of its ingredients brightened the rest of my day and gave me a wonderful, guilt-free lunch. (I am still working on losing some of the many pounds I added while in Argentina.
So far it’s going well, 13 lbs in about one month, while always eating good and plenty. 🙂

P.S.
Update after my own completion of Week Three :
 >
So far I have lost 19.5 lbs of weight in three weeks of  “Hans’ Lighter, Healthier Comfort Food”  meal plan.
I feel much better, sleep much better and on top of all the benefits of living a bit more on the sensible side of life, I eat as much as I want. (Except on the two days of the week which allow me a dinner of anything I crave, although in much smaller portions).
I have to admit that I fell off the wagon twice:
– Once in Week One: I had a pizza for lunch 😦
Once in Week Two: I had a couple of strawberry-filled doughnuts after dinner 😦

This  beauty of a salad will conclude Week One of “Hans’ Lighter, Healthier Comfort Food” meal plan. (There will be an initial 4 week plan)
For everybody not yet interested in a bit of a healthier lifestyle, I suggest you try this salad anyway. Healthier and lighter food in my case does certainly not mean tasteless and boring. 🙂  (As is the case with so many other lifestyle food suggestions out there) 😦
Now, I understand that sardines are not everybody’s favorite seafood, but as usual, feel free to replace them with the seafood of your preference, such as shrimp, lobster, sole, salmon, clams, mussels, scallops, crab meat, etc.

Sauteed Red Beet Leaves With Steamed Swai Filet, Aji Amarillo Sauce, Parmesan Shavings & Scallions

Who would have thought that red beet leaves are so yummy? !
Definitely not me, having never even considered cooking them before. But now that I have been looking into a more balanced, healthier diet, I have discovered a number of ingredients I will use in the future which will both expand my repertoire and at the same time improve my nutritional values.
Some of you might wonder why I have added cheese to this dish, since parmesan and fish does not usually end up on the same plate, but here , in my opinion, it just goes perfect with the vegetable, so in this case it won against  traditional restrictions.
And as far as the Aji Amarillo Sauce is concerned, because of its versatility, the bottled version has become a bit of a go-to condiment for me, convenient and oh-so-good 🙂 .
