Step 1: Place all ingredients into that little beast of a blender and securely fasten the lid.
Step 2: Blend thoroughly for around 15 – 30 seconds while gradually adding water (if necessary) to create desired consistency.
Step 3: Pour into a glass for a smoothie that will take you on vacation!
Simply multiply all ingredients if you wish to bulk cook!
Step 1: Start out by placing your rice in a saucepan to cook over a medium heat with 1 part rice to 2 parts water.
Step 2: Allow to gently simmer for about 15-20 minutes until all of the water has been absorbed.
Step 3: In the meantime, take out a bowl and combine the chicken breast with the brown sugar, paprika, cumin, garlic powder, salt, and pepper.
Step 4: Take out your most loved frying pan or skillet and bring to heat over a medium-high temperature.
Step 5: Add the olive oil and then the chicken to this desirable pan and cook for around 5 minutes per side.
Step 6: Once the chicken has developed a nice browning colour on both sides, turn off the heat and allow the chicken to rest for a further 5 minutes.
Step 7: While the chicken is taking it easy, bring a pot to boil over a high heat and add the broccoli florets. Allow to blanch for 1 minute.
Step 8: Slice the chicken into bite size pieces and then (if meal prepping) pull out your meal prep containers. Divide the portions evenly among your meal prep containers.
Step 9: If meal prepping- cover and refrigerate for up to 4 days. To serve, reheat in the microwave on a high setting for 2 minutes (adding spicy sauce is a treat!).
