With summer officially upon us, and the heat and humidity beginning to envelope our days and nights, menus begin changing to foods that are lighter, salads become a staple at every meal, and cooling refreshing drinks are sipped on.
So, for last nights supper I used a recipe which my brother invented, yes you heard that right! My brother! A yummy easy chicken recipe which doesn’t require much prep time.
Since we’ve begun trying to make a lifestyle change with regard to our eating habits, we’ve been avoiding too many carbs and since air fried chips were served as a side, we gave the roti a miss. Sliced cucumber and avocado were also served as a side along with Haloumi. And to drink, my favorite at the moment has been infused water. Every 2 days I make up a new jug featuring different fruits. Last night was mint & watermelon. Refreshing and yummy! And healthy to boot!
