I’ve made several different green marinades on my channel, from Spinach to Coriander or Cilantro, by itself, mixed with Yogurt or Coconut it is a delicious and healthy way to flavour your protein. A little over a year ago, I decided to lose weight and eat healthy and while I cheat ever so often(life is too short), I like to eat clean during the week with a good side of protein and a tasty salad.


Every week I try to come up with new marinades so I’m not eating the same ol thing week after week! This week I had a ton of Spinach left over from another recipe, so I decided to pair it with Cilantro and other aromatics like Chilli, Ginger and Garlic to infuse some serious flavour into the Chicken. I’ve recommended a minimum of 30 minutes to marinate the Chicken but the longer you marinate it, the more stellar the flavour will be.

Every week I meal prep about 2 – 3 pounds and stick any extras in the freezer. This also comes in handy when I send food to my older son who is in University. Just bag in in a freezer safe bag and mark it and you will have something exciting to look forward to when you don’t have the time to cook.
