There are days where my palette craves decadence but the time I have left in a day does not allow for intense culinary perfection. This inspired me to come up with a range of recipes that are not only time effective but restaurant worthy too 

Quick food does not always have to come from within a box or the Woolworths cooked food section. It is as simple as knowing what ingredients cook the quickest and what to pair it with!

I especially found this recipe worthy on those days when you are particularly health conscious and refined carbs is out of the line up

To get the most flavour, marinading the chicken over night ensures that the flavour is soaked into the meat, allowing more tenderness and a smoother texture.

And there you have it, a delicious home made and avo dinner minus the carbs 😉
