Everything is healthy in moderation
Eating one thing that is deemed ‘healthy’ does not in turn make you ‘healthy’. Just like one workout will not make you thin and one piece of cake will not make you fat.
Eating a balanced diet of 80% whole, nutritious foods (think foods NOT in a packet or packaged) with 20% treat yo’self type foods is my general rule – this allows your body to function at a healthy level whilst enjoying the amazing foods us humans have created – because, well, balance.
This is a great HIGH PROTEIN snack that the kiddies are sure to enjoy. Maybe just go easy on the tomato sauce (or make your own) as sauces are just as sugarful as chocolate – real story.

Nutrition: 10g Carb / 6g Fat / 33g Protein
What you will need:

- 1 tbspn dried herbs of your choice
Set oven to 180C.
Prepare a baking tray covered with baking paper and evenly spread out the cooked quinoa.
Bake for around 20 25 mins , checking often and stirring to avoid burning. Once quinoa is crispy, set aside
Increase the oven temperature to 200C.
Chop the chicken into chunks. Whisk the egg in a bowl together with the parmesan and herbs. Prepare a
separate plate with the quinoa. Dip the chicken first in the egg, then coat with the quinoa. Place the chicken nuggets on a baking tray covered with baking paper and bake for about 15-20 minutes, until chicken is cooked through.
Have as a snack or with a side salad.
