It’s ingredients are supportive of health from a number of angles, including digestive wellness, hormone balance and immune support. I love the nuttiness of this dish; it makes it so […]

Beetroot & Horseradish Coleslaw

This abundantly flavoursome coleslaw is my new food addiction.  I can’t get enough of it a the moment, and it’s finding its way into everything.  I love the nose-watering tang of the horseradish against the earthy beetroot. It’s wonderfully succulent yet also has great texture and the lovely crunch that […]

Creamy Coconut, Banana & Pecan Porridge

This creamy sweet porridge is both filling and comforting, and adds an element of indulgent luxury to the morning routine!  Porridge makes a good breakfast option. For many people, the fibre in oats is helpful for the digestive system, especially due to its ability to seemingly modify the gut microbiome […]

Golden Turmeric Paste

Turmeric has been used for centuries as a healing food, but modern science also recognises it’s amazing protential for supporting the immune system and improving detoxification processes. Such is turmeric’s power, it can sometimes be contraindicated (meaning it may interfere) with medication. For this reason, it’s always worth checking before […]

Slow-Cooked Roast Chicken Broth

Chicken broth or stock has been used as a healing food for centuries.  There are lots of health related recipes for chicken (or bone) stock available online, but I’m afraid many of them are not pleasant to drink, and certainly don’t look very appetising!  I think much of this has […]

Chocolate Brownie Balls

These sweet brownie-like balls are so quick and easy to make, and their tasty chewiness hits the spot when you fancy a little sweetness.  For recipes like this one I find it quickest and easiest to measure things out in cups (the size of a tea cup).

Simple Tasty Courgetti

Getting courgetti right can be tricky, and giving it an extra oomph of flavour is exactly how I like to enjoy it.  Using vegetables to replace regular foods, including spaghetti, is a great way to both optimise the diet and make vegetables the hero of your meals.  This simple recipe […]

Asian Summer Salad

I love the contrasting colours in this tasty salad.  The black of the rice against the red radishes and green soya beans is stunning, especially on a sunny summer’s day.  Radishes and summer go hand-in-hand for me, but they are available most of the year meaning this recipe need not […]

Chocolate Fruit & Nut Bars

This recipe was inspired by my love of Cadbury’s Fruit & Nut bar. There is nothing quite like that feeling of melting chocolate, chewy raisins and crunchy hazelnuts. The maple syrup and raisins do mean this is quite a sugary treat, so my suggestion would be to enjoy it after […]
