Spinach, Chicken and Pomegranate Salad Recipe

Not feeling too inspired by good ol’ Cesar salad, but still want to boost your raw greens with some protein? This spinach and chicken salad, jazzed up with pomegranate seeds can be anything: a great entre, side dish, or a light, but satisfying meal. Rich in potassium, vitamin C, B group vitamins and magnesium, pomegranate is one of nature’s super fruits. You can have it fresh when in season, from November to March, but you can easily find freeze-dried pomegranate arils and enjoy it all year round. Their vibrant colour will make your plate festive and fun and freshen up your day. Here’s how to prepare this week’s yummy treat. Ingredients: For the salad: 4 chicken breasts 200g baby spinach ½ red onion, thinly sliced Handful of pomegranate seeds 1 avocado, chopped For the dressing: 2 tbsp olive oil (extra virgin if possible) 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar 1 tsp honey Salt and pepper to taste For the marinade: 2 tbsp juice of a lemon, freshly squeezed 1 tsp garlic, minced 1 tsp oregano, chopped Salt and pepper to taste Method: In a bowl, mix the ingredients for the marinade and coat the chicken breasts on both sides. Put the meat in a shallow dish with whatever is left of the marinade and leave it in the fridge for at least two hours. (If possible, let the meat marinate longer. This will give it a more intense flavor.) Place chicken on a grill pan on medium-high heat and grill each side for around 5 minutes, or until cooked through. In a large bowl, combine the spinach, red onion, avocado and pomegranate...

How to Plan a Successful Corporate Event in Few Easy Steps

Corporate events are a great way your business or the company you work for to showcase its products and services, as well as its accomplishments, boost the team spirit of employees and foster the relationship with current and prospective clients. One-on-one face time with colleagues, executives, and clients can do wonders for employee morale and creativity, get everyone on the same page, foster workplace inclusivity and improve productivity on the job. Corporate events take all shapes and sizes. The whole company may come together for some fun time and socialisation, a weekend of training and team building, or education on sales and business techniques. Depending on the purpose and activities, options range from a casual party to a posh corporate gala. Planning a corporate event can be a daunting task, but following a few distinct steps will help you get through the whole process with minimal stress. Here are some event planning tips and tricks to help you pull a successful corporate event. 1. Planning and Research The initial phase of event planning requires a lot of research. This is the time you’ll need to make a lot of decisions, so it might be a good idea if you plan the event as a team or gather ideas from your coworkers. Start with the type of event you want to organise and who makes it on the guest list (clients, employees, investors, etc.) and decide on the event goal. Determining whether your event aims at increasing sales, building relationships or promoting corporate culture will make choosing the right time and venue much easier. After you’ve set your budget (or...

Roasted Garlic Cauliflower with Lemon Juice and Olive Oil

Cauliflower. Sounds uninspiring, but seasoned and roasted this bouquet-like plant tells its own story.  With its brown and caramelized edges, it will introduce you to a whole new buttery taste that will sure have you asking for seconds! Need something quick and tasty? Who cares you can’t cook or just can’t be bothered? This side dish goes well with any meal, and it requires no cooking skills. It’s practically the king of lazy recipes. All you’ll need is a few ingredients you can easily find in a grocery store or at the farmer’s market, a decent knife, an oven, and about half an hour’s time. Here’s how to deliver this tasty cruciferous veggie to your table. Serves: 4 Ingredients: 1 head cauliflower, separated into florets (or 5-6 cups) 3-4 cloves garlic, sliced (or 1-2 tablespoons sliced garlic) 2-3 tablespoons olive oil (1/4 cup) 2 tablespoons lemon juice (or about ½ lemon) 2 tablespoons parmesan, grated (1/3 cup) salt and pepper to taste 1 tablespoon chopped parsley, chives, or any other herbs and spices to suit your taste Method: Preheat the oven to 200°C. In a large bowl mix well the cauliflower florets, lemon juice, olive oil, garlic, salt and pepper.

Roasts for about 25 minutes, stirring occasionally and turning the florets to make sure they’re cooked evenly. Remove from the oven and top with Parmesan.
