Chicken, Avocado and Chickpea Wrap

tunesa

Ingredients:

1 Chicken Breast (boneless & skinless)
2 wraps or tortillas
1 Can Chickpeas (rinsed & drained)
1 Avocado
2 Cups Assorted Veggies
½ Cup Opadipity by Litehouse Greek Yogurt Ranch Dip
Salt and Pepper

Ingredients to Marinate the Chicken:

3 TS Litehouse Instantly Fresh Ginger
1 Lemon
3 TS Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Salt and Pepper

Directions:

  • Use lemon, ginger, extra virgin olive oil, salt and pepper to marinate the chicken breast. Put it in a Ziploc bag and leave it in the fridge. You can also use other ingredients to marinate the breast.
  • You can heat the wrap or tortilla or you can use it as it comes. The same goes for the veggies and chickpeas. I prefer to eat them raw, but it depends how you like them and if they need to be cooked (usually for 2-3 minutes).
  • Cook the marinated chicken breast on the grill or in a grill pan on the stove until they reach 165 degrees internal temperature. Then, let it rest.
  • Rinse and drain the chickpeas and place in a bowl with the avocado. Mash the chickpeas and avocado together with a fork. Add the chicken breast (diced) to the mixture with a sprinkle of salt and pepper. Add the Greek Yogurt Ranch Dip and mix together. Divide the mixture and spread on two tortillas or wraps and roll up.
  • Place the two wraps in separate containers with 2 cups of your favorite fresh veggies. Serve with 2 TS of Opadipity by Litehouse Greek Yogurt Ranch Dip.

 

Lemon-Ginger Chicken Over Brown Rice and Sautéed Greens

tunessa

Ingredients

2 Chicken Breasts (boneless & skinless)
1 Cup Brown Rice
8 Cups Greens
2½ Cups Water
2 TS Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2 TS Litehouse Instantly Fresh Red Onions

Directions

  • Marinate the chicken breasts as you did in the previous recipe, place them in a Ziploc bag and place them in the fridge.
  • Heat the olive oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Add 8 cups of greens (I use a combination of spinach, bok choy and green chard).
  • Add the Litehouse Instantly Fresh Red Onions. Cover for 2-3 minutes until the greens cook slightly. Sauté for 2-3 minutes more. Add 2½ cups of water and bring to a boil. Add 1 cup of brown rice and stir. Reduce the heat and simmer, covered for 30-35 minutes or until the water is absorbed. Remove from the heat and let it sit for five minutes. Fluff with a fork.
  • Cook the marinated chicken breasts on the grill or in a grill pan on the stove until they reach 165 degrees internal temperature. Let them rest.
  • Divide the brown rice into two separate containers. Top with one chicken breast each.

Sweet Potato and Quinoa Patties

tunesa.

Ingredients:

2 Medium Sweet Potatoes
2 Cups Quinoa (cooked)
½ Cup Whole Wheat Breadcrumbs
1 Egg
6-8 Cups Greens
½ Cup OPA by Litehouse Roasted Red Pepper Greek Yogurt Dressing
Salt and Pepper

Directions:

  • Prepare the quinoa according to the package directions.
  • Pierce the sweet potatoes with a fork several times, and microwave them in 3-minutes intervals until slightly soft and cooked through. You can also cook them at 400 degrees F in the oven for 45 minutes.
  • Remove the skin from the cooked sweet potatoes, then mash the sweet potatoes in a bowl. Mix in the 2 cups of cooked quinoa, breadcrumbs, egg, salt and pepper. Form 6 patties, and cook for 20 minutes on a baking sheet in a 425 degree pre-heated oven, flipping halfway.
  • Place about 2½ cups of your favorite greens into three separate containers. Top with two sweet potatoes and quinoa patties and top with 2 TS of the Opa by Litehouse Roasted Red Pepper Greek Yogurt dressing.

Fast Pizzas

tunessa.

With arabic or sandwich bread cut with a large cookie cutter, you can create mini pizzas to which you will add a little tomato sauce, mozzarella cheese and a little oregano and, if you want, pieces of low fat ham.

If you don’t have prepared tomato sauce, you can opt for canned whole tomatoes with which you can make a quick puree or ripe tomatoes cut into thin slices. These are the basic ingredients you use to make a pizza, but you can personalize it. It will take you 2 hours to prepare and 30 minutes to cook.
Omelettes and Tortillas

.tunessa

Tortillas and omelettes are a resource that is used in many parts of the world. And who doesn’t love them? We only need to make it a full dinner, but we don’t need to work hard for this.

To ensure a balanced meal, incorporate different vegetables into the mixture, such as: onions, mushrooms, sauteed zucchinis, fresh asparagus, peppers and even a more or less dried tomato stew, which will give a juicy consistency. Serve with a slice of toasted wheat bread and a cup of consommé.
Consommés (soups) and light creams

.tunessa

Consommés and light vegetable creams are a good choice that you can prepare on the weekend and freeze in portions for the rest of the week. It has been found that the intake of a hot dish like soup produces satiety and a sensation of wellness. It is also a good way to control your weight.

Beef or chicken consommés needs to be well degreased and then supplemented by adding bits of onion, garlic, sweet pepper and even an egg when serving as well as a little fresh chive, cilantro or parsley to add flavor.

In the case of creams, zucchini or pumpkin creams have less carbohydrates and zero fat; you can also add to this list the mushroom, tomato or chayote creams. And, if you want to add a dairy product, choose skim milk or yogurt, but in the case of the latter, do not let it boil. In this way, you won’t lose the properties of its beneficial bacterial flora.

Vera Sidika is “dark” again

Yes you read that right. The queen of skin bleaching is dark again.

This is how she used to look like before she bleached her skin.

I dont know if it is the insecurity that made her bleached her skin in the first place or the crazy saying: white = beautiful.

And this is after she bleached her skin

Vera posted a photo of her “new self” saying;

” Never be defined by your past. ..it was just a lesson, not a life sentence. Feels good to be back, black dont crack. #BackToBlack #MissedMyMelanin #StillBeautiful #BlackBarbie “

Fans are not having it, some are saying that the only reason why she is dark again is because she wants to have kids and others are still thinking that it is fake, that it is photoshop.

This is her new look.

Vera has always been open about bleaching, 2 or 3yrs back she revealed that she spent alot of money to bleach her skin from dark to light.

She posted a video of her dancing, it’s obviously that she is not comfortable in her skin, yet.

Congratulations Diamond & Tanasha

It’s a BOY 👶🏾🎉🎊🎊. Congratulations to diamond platnumz & his girlfriend Tanasha. On the birthday party, diamond announced that Tanasha is 7months pregnant and that they are having a baby boy, I guess this was the surprise he was taking about (the gender reveal) Everybody thought that he is finally going to bend the knee and propose to her, jokes on us.

Diamond already has 3 kids, 2 with Zari and 1 with Hamisa. He later took it on his IG and asked his followers to help him choose a baby name.

Diamond and Tanasha have been together for 8months now. You do the maths 😉

2. Irene Paul

20190709_132731.jpg
Ladies and gentlemen this is how you dress to a great gatsby themed party. She didnt stick to the code (black,gold & white) & thats why she is on #2, but she nailed the theme.

3. Darleen

20190709_111536.jpg

20190709_133004.jpg
For the 1st time she wore something beautiful and looked good in it. Please stick with the designer who dressed you this time. And about the shoes, lets pretend we didnt see that 😉

4. Sara

20190709_111515.jpg
She doesnt dissappoint

5. Wolper

20190709_111308.jpg
I love wolper because she knows how to dress. She knows what looks good on her.

6. Unkown

20190709_105049.jpg
I dont know her name, but she looked good , her man though, his suit seems a little bit big for him.

8. Unknown

20190709_132755.jpg
I dont know her name, but if only she could have done something with her hair would have been perfect.

For the gentlemen it was simple, suit & tie and Diamond Platnumz is the winner

20190709_133742.jpg
Yes I pulled a Diddy on Tanasha, but I couldnt find a picture of Diamond alone so I had to cut her out.. oepss.

Some took the word simple waaaaaay toooooooooo simple, I mean how on earth are gonna show up at somebody’s party looking like this?

20190709_105003.jpg
I dont care how good we know each other, but you aint coming to my party dressing like this. The fact that the security let him in, it still bugs me.

Lets continue with the ones who didnt stick with the theme. Am talking about dresses with trains, ball dresses & Multi colours & these are just a few.

  1. Lady J dee
    20190709_105024.jpg
    Atleast she got the dresscode right, she wore gold. But girl, whats that? Its like someone text her: “girl there is a party am going, be ready in 5min I’ll pick you up.” and she thought free food? say no more #smh

    2. Tanasha & Mama Dangote

20190709_104805.jpg
It breaks my heart to see the people who came up with the theme dont know how to back it up. I mean for the love of God it is your birthday, your party, how on earth are you gonna show up wearing a cinderella dress? Telling people to stick on the dresscode or they wont allowed in and you the birthday girls show up wearing a red cinderella dress. Does that even make sense? The MUA who did mama dangote’s make-up needs to be sued. 

3. Esma

20190709_111425.jpg
The dresscode was black, gold or white and she showed up with a blue dress smh

4. Irene Uwoya

20190709_111603.jpg

20190709_111622.jpg
It’s a beautiful dress, but not for a great gatsby themed party

6. Harmonize

20190709_132717.jpg
Showed up in orange blazer and that hair colour is just horrible.

7. RC Makonda

20190709_132848.jpg
Yep, he went full denim

8. Aunt Ezekiel

20190709_111359.jpg
She had the gloves, fur and feathers… except the dress. That aint a great gatsby themed party dress

9. Unknown

20190709_132906.jpg
the dress is a no

10. Diamond’s dad

20190709_132820.jpg
We all know that they weren’t on speaking terms, but diamond could atleast try to buy him a suit, it doesnt have to be a custom fit
20190709_132934.jpg
I dont know who did their make-up, but they need to sue them

Anyway that was it, I hope you had fun watching the party, cause I did. Feel free to comment.

The Great Gatsby 707

And the big day is here. What is The Great Gatsby 707? Well for those Who dont know diamond platnumz’s mom & his girlfriend are both born on the same day & month, 7th of july. So, diamond being a “loving humble” son + boyfriend is throwning them a big birthday party and the theme is ” The Great Gatsby” .

It has been “the talk” of the week on IG and am curious about it. And you know what they say; curiosity killed the cat, well this cat is ready.

I’ll be your fashion police for the day 😉

The venue is Mlimani City and it’s an invitations only kinda party. Lets not forget about the dresscode, if you had your “kitenge dress” ready, you better put it back in the closet, cause diamond made it very clear anyone who shows up with a different colour wont be allowed entrance.

So my darlings, if somebody ever told you that you look good in red or yellow or green, you might reconsider that, cause the dresscode is black, white and gold.

Some of us didnt get the invitation, dont worry at all. There is an after party, the entree is not free though.

Happy Birthday to Tanasha Donna & Mama Dangote. Wishing you’all a day filled with happiness and a year filled with joy. 🎂🎉🎊🎊

Vanessa Mdee drops a new song and it’s a hit

While we are waiting for Vanessa Mdee to drop her Ep, here a teaser. She released Moyo today, #1 single on her Ep. Its different from what we are used to hear from her and I love it. And let me tell y’all, it already on the replay.

The song goes like;

🎵 moyo unanikosea moyo unanikosea moyo unanikosea nakaa na wewe natembea na wewe nalala na wewe bado unanikosea, zungumza na mimi mchana lalalaaa, zungumza na mimi usiku lalalaaa, na kama haifai hata ndotoni tu mhh, sishindane na kichwa, tumalizane yakaisha, moyo nirudishe maisha, tuputupu nimekwisha. Moyo unanikosea moyo unanikosea moyo unanikosea moyo🎵

Go to YouTube and listen to the whole song

Song of the week: Feel Me by Sophia Secret

Song of the week is: Feel Me by Sophia Secret ft. Mee Brown.

20190625_210704.jpg

On the 10th of june she released her first song Feel Me featuring Mee Brown, a Tanzania singer. Sophia is an up-and-coming artist from the Netherlands, she was a vlogger back in the days and now has decided to join the music industry. Sophia is one of the rising to watch for, she has something that I cant quite find the right words to describe her,  she is among the gifted, her style of lyrics and voice control for an up-and coming artist its impressive.

20190625_210722.jpg

The song and video are amaizing, but we do have a few tips for the future use. As an upcoming artist you have to work dubble hard in just about every aspect of the business if you want to go anywhere and actually begin to meet those who can help you step up your game. Be professional, patient, humble, creative and on the grind. Add a few skills to bring to the table instead of just singing, any skill you have to offer will help you connect and build your game further. Dont just put your music online or tell all your friends to check it out, because that doesn’t mean everyone will.

Just like Nipsey Hussle said ” The game is gonna test you, never fold. Stay 10-toes down. It’s not on you, it’s in you and what’s in you, they can’t take away.” (may he keep resting in peace). You gotta work hard if you want to be heard, hit up every open mic you find and introduce yourself to everyone. We are looking forward to more songs from you.

And here is the clip. Enjoy & feel free to leave feedbacks in the comment.

The video was shoot in Tanzania, produced by Yogobeats and directed by Travellah.
