Welcome to Day 2 of Lucy’s Clean Eating Guide

Today’s recipes are bursting with colour and flavours – we love to ‘eat the rainbow’ – enjoy!

I start each day with oil pulling as soon as I wake up (I usually manage to do this for about 5 minutes) before having my ritual of warm water and lemon juice.

 Ingredients (serves 4)

Lunch today is using up leftovers but in case you haven’t already made the chicken mix, here’s the recipe again…

  • 4 chicken breasts cut into bite size pieces
  • 2 tsp. sweet smoked paprika
  • Pinch of ground cumin
  • 1 tbsp. Lucy Bee Coconut Oil, melted
  • Juice of one lime
  • 1 red pepper cut into thin strips
  • 1 red onion finely sliced
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 8 lettuce leaves, whole

Method

  • Put the chicken pieces into a bowl or plastic Ziploc bag. Add the paprika, cumin, lime juice, black pepper and melted Lucy Bee Coconut Oil and stir to coat. If in a bag, it’s easier to “massage” into the chicken. Leave to marinate for 10 minutes or longer if you have the time.
  • Melt 2 tbsp. Lucy Bee Coconut Oil in a large frying pan. Add the chicken and fry until the chicken is cooked. Put the chicken into an oven-proof dish and keep warm until ready to serve.
  • Fry the onions, then the peppers until cooked.

To Serve – Make up your fajita by adding chicken, onion and peppers along with grated cheese, tomatoes, guacamole or natural yoghurt to suit your taste.

Ingredients  (serves 4)

  • 1 medium butternut squash, peeled and chopped
  • 2 tbsp. Lucy Bee Coconut Oil
  • 1 yellow onion
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 180g risotto rice
  • 1 small glass of white wine

  • 1 bay leaf
  • 3 slices of pancetta (optional)
  • 1 tbsp. dried sage
  • Nutritional yeast (to taste)
  • Lucy Bee Himalayan Salt, to season

Method

  • Preheat oven to 180C, 350F, gas mark 4.
  • Place the butternut squash into a baking dish and toss with 1 tablespoon of Lucy Bee Coconut Oil.
  • Roast the butternut squash for 30-40 minutes or until soft, flipping them halfway through.
  • While the butternut squash is cooking, melt the remaining tablespoon of Lucy Bee Coconut Oil in a pot on medium heat and add the onion. Cook until the onion turns translucent.
  • After 2 minutes, add the garlic cloves and cook for a further minute.
  • Add the risotto rice and coat it evenly in Lucy Bee Coconut Oil.
  • Add all of the white wine and stir continuously until completely evaporated.
  • Add 200 ml of vegetable stock on a low heat.
  • Stir the mixture to ensure the risotto rice does not stick to the bottom of the pot.
  • Once the rice has absorbed the stock, add 200ml more and stir again.
  • While doing this, if your butternut squash is ready, remove from the oven and replace with pancetta for 5-10 minutes. If the squash is not ready, add the pancetta in with it.
  • Add the remaining stock and simmer until the rice has absorbed it all.
  • Add in the dried sage and nutritional yeast and stir.
  • Can put more nutritional yeast on the top if preferred.
