Chicken & Pumpkin Risotto 

I used the leftover chicken from lunch and added it at the end. Again, grill about 500gms of Chicken breast. 

1 small butternut pumpkin (about 600gms)

1 1/2 cups Arborio rice

1L Chicken Stock (my wife made it - don’t ask me how)

1 large Brown Onion

1 chopped garlic clove 

1 Tablespoon of oil. 

Handful of fresh chopped parsley

  • Heat the oil in a large saucepan on medium heat
  • Combine pumpkin, garlic, onion and rice in a large saucepan, fry until onion turns clear
  • Add a cup of chicken stock stirring until stock is absorbed
  • Slowly add the rest of the stock until it is absorbed by the rice and slightly creamy (you might need to add boiling water if the chicken stock runs out
  • Meanwhile - grill the chicken 
  • Add the chicken right at the end 
  • Top with the parsley 

Throughout the day I just drank water and ate fruit for snacks.

This is funny and I do like me some bacon.

"For every hour spent in front of the tv or on the computer this week I’m matching it with the same amount of time running with weights over the top of my normal exercise routine."
Kill me now.

Work is a killer for me. Most of the time I just bought subway and chinese out of convenience. So in order to change the lifestyle I had to change some bad habits and buying convenience foods was one of them. The trick is to get what you need ready the night before and grab it to go in the morning. 

These actually don’t taste too bad and I just make them up just before I have to eat them.

This is going to be lunch for me. Minus the fish because I hate fish. So I’m replacing it with chicken. Over the next week I’m starting to make things from scratch. Basically if it comes wrapped in plastic or in a box OR it has ingredients in it that I don’t know anything about, I won’t eat it. 
Another thing I’m swapping out from now on is Margarine/butter for Avocado. I can’t eat avocado in slices but as a spread I can probably stomach it.
