Healthy Vietnamese Food - Goi Ga

Looking for a QUICK & HEALTHY lunch or dinner?! Then you can’t go past this awesome vietnamese chicken salad…

To be as healthy as possible and achieve a lean and toned body you need to have a nutrient based diet.

Most people have a cultural based diet – eating foods pushed by food industry advertising or historical situations without any real thought to what effect the nutrients have on the internal system. For example in the ‘West’ food industry developed and pushed the consumption of cereals, pop tarts and sweets as snacks. Asia has more historical roots of pork and rice, baguette with eggs (french influence) for breakfast. This eating culture just becomes the accepted.. Whether it´s the best for us or not.

Is your food giving you the nutrients to thrive?
Is your food going to provide you with sustained energy throughout the day?
Is your food the best to help your body drop fat and look amazing?

Here is one of my favourite vietnamese dish…


It will achieve all of the above!!!
