The Health & Wellness Committe at AIB Health Fair
- 2 Chicken Breast (diced)
- 1 teaspoons rapeseed oil (any oil)
- 1 Red Chili (finely chopped)
- 2-3 Cloves Garlic (finely Chopped)
- 1 Tablespoon Grated Ginger
- 1 Onion (chopped bite sizes)
- ½ Red + ½ Green Pepper (Chopped Bite sizes)
- 2 Tablespoon Curry Powder
- 1 Tablespoon Soy Sauce
- 2 Tablespoon Peanut Butter
- ½ Can Coconut Milk
- ½ Cup of Water
- 1 Lime Zest
- Salt & Pepper
1.- Heat a wok or deep frying pan on medium-high heat, add a teaspoon of oil. Add Chicken to the pan, chili, ginger, garlic, onions and peppers, salt & pepper, stir fry 3-5 minutes until chicken is partially cooked.
2.- Add curry powder, soy sauce, peanut butter, coconut milk, water and lime zest. Cook for 10-12 minutes at medium-low heat uncovered. (Add a bit of water if the sauce is too thick).
3.- Serve with wholegrain Rice, quinoa or Noodles, garnish with fresh chopped coriander.
• 1 cup light soy sauce
• 1/4 cup honey
• 4 salmon fillets (about 1.5 lb.)
• Kale, Bok Choy or Spinach
•Sprinkle of Sesame seeds
1.- Mix soy sauce and honey. Reserve 1/4 cup of marinade in a separate bowl.
2.- Place salmon fillets, skin-side up, in the marinade. Allow to marinate for at least 5 minutes, (the longer you leave it to marinade the better).
3.Cook salmon under the pan skin-side down and broil without turning until exterior is well caramelized and the fish is just cooked through, 3-4 minutes each side, depending on thickness of the fillet.
4.-Shred the kale finely and wash. Steam fry the kale, (cabbage, bok choy or spinach) on the same pan with 2 Tbsp. of the marinade for 2-3 minutes, medium to high heat, ready to serve with a sprinkle of sesame seeds.
My Nutrition Tips: Serve with soba or wholegrain noodles, quinoa or brown rice. You can use the marinade as a glaze for the salmon. Also, you can add ginger, chili, garlic or 5 spice to the marinade, to make a more flavorsome glaze.
- 1 cup almonds
- 1 cup desiccated coconut or oats
- A Large handful of pitted dates
- 1-2 tbsp. of maple syrup
- Blend almond & coconut/oats in a food processor then add dates slowly, you might need more dates, honey or maple syrup depending on your food processor.
- Work the dough & Make into balls with your hands or melon baller, you can eat them plain or you could roll them on coconut, cocoa powder, sesame seed or dip them in melted dark chocolate.
- Keep in an airtight container or freezer bags, they will last for weeks (as all ingredients are dry fruit & nuts) no dairy, no wheat, no refined sugars. Enjoy!
*Tip: You can add different flavours to this basic recipe, vanilla, orange zest, cocoa powder, cinnamon, chia seeds, honey, hazelnuts, cashew nuts, etc

This Program was designed specifically with Fat Loss in mind. For those of you who have maybe tried and lost some weight but find that you have stubborn fat just will not go away. Having spent years working, researching and looking at every "diet" that has come on the market- I wanted to create something that
1. Actually really worked
2. Specifically targeted Fat
3. Contained recipes which were healthy and delicious
So we came up with "The Code". The foods in this plan are foods which activate the "Sirtuin" pathway. Sirtuins are a type of protein which protect the cells in our body from dying quickly, or becoming inflamed through illness. Research indicates that sirtuins also influence the body's ability to burn fat, boost metabolism and actually help the body stay young. So we have combined these sirtuin rich foods with nutrient dense foods and have come up with "The Code".
The Code also comes with a free Exercise plan, again designed to specifically burn fat. Certain types of exercise help burn stubborn fat. These are all included in the package.
The Code contains recipes, a full 3-week meal plan, shopping list and advice. It also comes with a full corresponding exercise plan.
