healthy eating my way (allergy friendly)

Plantin and pineapple chicken salad

I was sitting and watching TV the other day. On the kid channel. “Super why!” and they were actually talking about candy and soda, that is loaded with sugar, and fast energy, versus fruit and water. They tried to show to kids what happens when eating loads of sugar versus being healthy. Words like: healthy, healthy snacks, nutrition, good energy and feel great was used over and over.  I think this is a great way to get kids aware of this. Showing that the one that ate loads of candy and drank soda, crashed, getting sleepy. After one minute having tons of energy and in the next minute being super sleepy. Sugar crash.

Over to todays recipe. I had a hard workout today, so I wanted to make something simple, but to give my body some potassium and protein. Plantin is a cooking banana, that my mum uses a lot in her cooking, and everyone know: bananas have a lot of potassium. I can’t eat raw bananas so cooked ones works perfect.


2 plantin(cooking banans)

4 chicken file ( I used Hawaii gourmet: Pineapple teryikai chicken)*

2 cups spinach

1 cup ruccola

Balsamic vinegar

Sea salt

Butter (ghee)


*If you don’t have the Hawaii gourmet: Just make your own marinade:

1/4 pineapple

Pineapple juice


Soy sauce




1. Cut up the banana and add a tbs of ghee to your pan, add the bananas. Cook until golden on both sides.

2. Have a plate ready with a paper towel on. Put the bananas here to dabb of any excess butter. Sprinkle with a little sea salt.

3. Fry your chicken in a pan. I used a teflon pan, so that I did not need to add any oil

4,Divide the salad on the plate, drizzle some balsamic vinegar over.

5.Add the chicken, and the plantin.

    This is very healthy! I love plantain; it’s so comforting for cold evenings! My African friend cooked it a few time for me and it’s soo good! I need to remember to get some of them when I am in a market next 🙂
