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 […]

Stress & Health Part 3: Immunity

Why is it that the moment you take your foot off the gas you become ill?  Or perhaps infections – of one kind or another – keep returning with frustrating frequency?  Perhaps you just can’t shake that feeling of malaise? Your immune system is a marvellous thing. In fact, it’s […]

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 […]

Stress & Health Part 2: Digestion

A well functioning digestive system is essential for optimal health and wellbeing. Most of us have some basic awareness of how we feel digestively, and who hasn’t felt bloated, a bit gassy or suffered from heartburn from time-to-time? For some, digestion isn’t on their radar much, yet for others it […]

Stress & Health Part 1: Anxiety

Stress. What a huge subject. It’s something that impacts most of us – to varying degrees – a lot of the time. While the majority would agree that a feeling of stress isn’t a pleasant one, there are some situations when stress helps push us beyond our normal abilities or […]

The Quickest Mackerel Pate

I’m often found searching for something to eat raw crunchy vegetables with, and this very quick mackerel pate is a real winner.  It’s also very easy to adapt and personalise you your own tastes.  I mix between using peppered mackerel fillets and plain, and choose to heat the pate with […]

Sardine Linguini

If you are unsure whether or not you like fish, or if you don’t feel confident cooking with it, then this recipe is a good one to try.  It’s very quick and simple and the flavours are rich and intense, but not too fishy.  I use tinned sardines, a rich […]

Tips for Increasing Fruit & Veg

We have all got used to the 5-A-Day message, although I’d question if many people consciously reach for this. However, the recently published findings from researchers at Imperial College London suggest that eating closer TEN fruit and veg a day is a better goal if you are serious about keeping […]

Is Something You Are Eating Making You Ill?

Many of my clients strongly suspect that something they are eating is not agreeing with them.  They report digestive problems, headaches or migraine, eczema or other skin complaints, low energy or fuzzy head, period or joint pain as examples of symptoms they think are linked to particular foods. It is accepted that […]

Eating to reduce pain

At the weekend we ran one of our Healing Foods workshops, and I discussed food that helps pain management. In my clinic I often work with clients who experience pain on a regular basis. This may be in relation to arthritis, headaches, period pain or aches and pains from training […]
