Mexican Chicken and Lime Soup
We discovered this recipe last year in Mexico...and have been making it at home ever since! The fresh, light and healthy ingredients make a gorgeous combination of flavours, it's very filling, and it's super light and healthy to boot! Better yet, it only takes 20 minutes to cook, and since you lay out the ingredients for everyone to add to their individual bowls it can please the most fussy of eaters! It's a total recipe success! Here's what you need to know to make it. Recipe: Serves 4 2 skinless, boneless chicken breasts 16 cups of water 3 cups rice (brown if you want to be super healthy!) 1/2 cup thinly cut cilantro 1/2 cup thinly cut red pepper 1/2 cup thinly cut zucchini 1/2 cup thinly cut green onions 1/2 tbsp thinly cut jalapeño pepper 1 lime cut into 6 wedges Directions: Place 3 cups rinsed rice and 6 cups of water in rice cooker - close lid and don't re-open until the buzzer goes off letting you know it's done. Approx 10 minutes after closing rice cooker lid start cooking soup base. In a large pot place the chicken breasts cut into bite sized pieces and 10 cups of water. Boil for approx 10 minutes, and add salt and pepper to taste. On a plate arrange the cut vegetables in separate piles. Put in the middle of the dining table.

delicious vegetables to add to the soup
When the rice cooker let's you know the rice is done place four heaping spoon fulls of rice in each bowl, then cover with chicken stock and pieces of chicken. Place each of these bowls on the table with spoons and then invite everyone to add their own veggies and enjoy!

A light, healthy, and delicious tilapia dinner

Here's an amazing fish recipe that we recently tested out. It's light, healthy and delicious! And since we are getting married in less than one month we're looking for all the healthy, light meals possible. Ingredients 1 tilapia fillets 1 tbsp olive oil 1 tbsp anchovy paste 2 tbsp fresh squeezed lemon 1 cup parsely 3 cloves garlic Instructions Preheat the oven to 350°. Place the fish in a baking dish. In a bowl, mix the olive oil, garlic, lemon juice, anchovy paste and parsley, and pour over the fish to coat it. Cover and marinate in the refrigerator for 20 minutes. Season with salt and pepper, and bake in the oven for 10 to 15 minutes. In the last three minutes of cooking feel free to add some spinach or asparagus to your baking dish for your vegetables. Now, sit down and enjoy! I really, really, really wanted a glass of wine with this but since I was going to work out later in the evening I couldn't. But...if you have a free evening to relax this would be even more divine with a glass of Pinot Grigio. Ah bliss!
