Thai Basil Chicken with Cashews

I was also inspired by our good friend Crystal’s “Haters Not Allowed” healthy lifestyle Facebook group for this wonderful recipe. Skinnytaste.com is one of our favorite go-to sources for healthy recipes, so when I read that Crystal tried their Thai Basil Chicken and loved it I just had to try it myself. We both added some yummies to it to enhance it even more while still keeping it light. It’s wholesome enough with the added veggies and cashews that you won’t even feel like you need rice. Cheers to a fresh 2017!

Thai-Style Halibut with Coconut Curry Broth

Thai coconut curry is one of my favorite exotic comfort food dishes, so as soon as I came across Ellie Krieger’s recipe, I just had to try it! It’s so simple and so delicious. I added a few of my favorite flavors like garlic, ginger and Thai basil, but pretty much kept it as it was written. The recipe is also very flexible. You can swap any type of seafood with the Halibut or if you’re not a seafood fan, can also use chicken. Either way you will really enjoy this!
