Chickpea, avocado and chicken salad – 265 cal

Well, I’m a huge fan of chicken combined with pomegranate seed! You should try it now if you haven’t yet! It’s sure a delish combo! Here’s a recipe for a quick and light summer salad that can be made with whatever you have at hand – the really important ingredients is the chick peas, chicken and pomegranate.

1/2 cup or 1 dl chopped red bell pepper
1 cup or 2 dl (150 g) chick peas
1 huge skin- and boneless cooked chicken breast á 200 g (mine was already marinated)
1/4 cup or 1/2 dl (40 g) pomegranate seeds
1 cup or 2 dl (250 g) chopped cucumber
1/2 (50 g) chopped small red onion
1 medium-sized (100 g) avocado
2/3 cup or 1,5 dl (170 g) halved cherry tomatoes
1 cup or 2 dl (200 g) chopped green lettuce
1,5 T (20 g) green basil pesto
Herbal salt, pepper, parmesan spice, apple cider vinegar and other spices to taste

Finely dice everything and just blend in a huge bowl. Put in the fridge and let the flavors sink in while you do a sauce. I strongly recommend aioli made with quark (greek yoghurt or whatever you have at hand works), honey, one garlic clove and spices.

Fluffy protein pancakes for 244 calories

The best part about being an adult? Protein pancakes for dinner or whenever. These babies are gluten free, relatively low in calories and packed with proteins and fiber.

21 g coconut flour
5 g almond meal
1/3 tsp baking powder
11 g casein
11 g whey
7 g (1 T) gf rolled oats (regular oats)
Salt and sweetener to taste
3 (80 g) egg whites
1 tsp vanilla essence
1 T unsweetened applesauce
A dash of milk of choice (I used unsweetened pistachio milk)

Blend all dry ingredients in a roomy bowl. Add the vanilla and applesauce and whisk the egg whites a little in a separate bowl. Pour them in and stir GENTLY. Add a desired amount of milk but keep in mind that the batter should be pretty thick. Cook on low heat and cover the pan! Volià! I topped of mine with a chocolate sauce made with quark, cacao powder and a little pistachio milk, some bananas and chocolate chips.
