Halal and Healthy

I recently started dieting once again.

What have I had to give up that i love?

Cupcakes, chocolate and diet coke!

I purged my cupboards this weekend so now it is time to come up with a menu that is healthy and halal.

I have been using Theresa Albert’s book Ace Your Health. She emphaizes breakfast right at the begining of the book so this week I am not only planning my dinners but my breakfasts as well.


Breakfast- yogurt ( if you want halal yogurt look for the Balkan symbol at the grocery store here in the GTA), fruit salad (a mix of pineapple, grapes, mango, orange)

Dinner-Timeless Tuna Penne Salad


Breakfast- oatmeal, and blueberries

Dinner-Chicken dijon (in the recipe use skim milk and light sour cream), brown rice, brocolli


Breakfast- I am going to try and make homemade yogurt and fresh fruit.

Dinner- I am making Meatless Chili using this recipe. Too take some of the gas effect off the beans make sure you rinse them.

Meatless Chili


1 can chili beans in tomato sauce
1 can kidney beans
1 can stewed tomatoes
1/2 cup sliced celery
1/4 cup diced onion
1 Tbsp chili powder
1 cup cooked brown rice
Salt to taste
Optional: light sour cream, grated cheese, hot sauce


In sauce pan, cook celery, onion and tomato for 5 minutes. Add everything else but rice, sour cream and cheese. Cover and simmer for 15 minutes. Add rice, put into bowls and top with any or all of the “optionals”.


Breakfast- the homemade yogurt from yesterday  with fresh fruit

Dinner-Salmon Patties, green salad


Breakfast- oatmeal, berries

Dinner-Black bean Quesadillas

Saturday-having a friend over so

Breakfast- Breakfast Egg Casserole, fresh fruit

Dinner- we are going out


Breakfast- leftovers from yesterday

Dinner-Oven baked whole chicken, baked potatoes, mixed veggies

Now what is cooking at your house this week? Now I am off to Organzing Junkie‘s blog to see what is cooking at your house.
