My mum used to make the best lemon tarts. Buttery, crumbly pastry cases filled with sharp zingy lemon curd. When I asked for her recipe, I learnt she actually makes it in the microwave. Not my favourite cooking technique, nor was I a fan of the butter and sugar content. So here’s my healthy version, for all you curd lovers out there. Spread on wholemeal toast, dollop on your morning oats, ripple through Greek yoghurt or enjoy straight from the jar with a spoon. Also amazing with a goats cheese salad…just trust me on that one!

This low-fat dressing is one of my favourites – a delicious balance between salty, sweet and sour. Enjoy on days where your good fat intake is already covered (think avocados, nuts, seeds and coconut oil). It’s really important to use good fats to keep you satiated and stop you reaching for more food for later on.
