Everybody loves a good pizza, but lets be honest they aren’t always the healthiest option. By swapping out your tradtional pizza base with pitta bread and greek yoghurt for cheese, this pitta pizza will satisfy all of your pizza cravings without all of the unwanted extras.
One of my all-time favourite flavour combos, chocolate and peanut butter. These pancakes are gluten, dairy and sugar free, which means I can enjoy them a little more regularly.
These pancakes are inspired by dumplings I once tried my hand at (and failed miserably). These guys are much easier – no messy filling to contend with, and even better, become a pancake hybrid when fried in sesame oil. Perfect as an appetiser with friends, or as a quick dinner after work.
Nasi Goreng literally means ‘fried rice’ in Indonesian and Malay, traditionally cooked in sunflower oil or margarine, and topped with a fried egg. Whilst a little fried food can work in a balanced diet, the oils used to cook the food are important for your health. Sesame oil gives a great flavour to this dish and contains heart-healthy fats, but you can also use coconut or olive oil too. I’ve also swapped the usual white rice for brown (which contains the nutritious bran and germ) for a nice take on your take-out.
My healthy take on this Tex-Mex favourite, this burrito won’t leave you feeling weighed down. Traditionally loaded with refried beans, rice, cheese and sour cream, for some they can be difficult to digest leaving you feeling sluggish. Next time you’re craving Mexican, make this your go-to for an option your tastebuds and tummy will love.
Buying a whole fish is often more economical than buying the fillet. It also makes it a cinch to prep! Ask your fishmonger or supermarket counter to clean and scale a snapper for you, then throw it on a baking tray, add some simple flavours and you’ve got one tasty, nourishing meal in under 30 minutes.
Just when you thought pizza was off the menu (’cause the healthy cauliflower base ones are WAYY too much effort), I come swooping into your life to deliver this slice of good news. WHOLEMEAL PITA BREADS work a treat. Top them with crisp, juicy Jazz Apples, salty goats cheese, bitter rocket and nutty pecans, and you can kiss Domino’s goodbye. #sorrynotsorry. Healthy pizza in 10 minutes. Done.
Doesn’t sound very sexy, but adding all your leftover veggies and meat or seafood to the bottom of a shallow dish and adding eggs on top makes for one the simplest, tastiest meals around. At the end of the week I often have some greens that are past their best – and they work great in this dish. Gather all your odd-and-ends – reduce waste and get dinner in under 30 minutes. Winning!
Quite possibly the best chocolate chip cookies you’ll ever taste, these mouthfuls of goodness are completely gluten, dairy and refined sugar free – replacing traditional ingredients with more nutritious ingredients. They give a boost to your daily fibre, protein and anti-oxidant intake, and keep your blood sugar levels happy too.
