There’s something divine about lemon and pepper together. The zesty flavours are awesome on both seafood and chicken. Here I’ve added a bit of extra spice and paired it with a low-carb rice option for a lean and green dinner.
To get beautiful skin (I’m looking at you, Scarlett Johansson*), healthy fats should be an essential part of your diet. Your nutrition is paramount in achieving supple, hydrated, wrinkle-free skin. The recipe? Essential fatty acids, which irritatingly your body can’t make on its own. This dish is sure to boost your natural glow – chocked full of EFA’s with avocado, mackerel and caviar.

These little pots of heaven are so simple to make. No baking and no whisking, just a little stir and you’ve created one light and tasty dessert. Perfect for summers on the terrace post-bbq, the zingy lemon is a great palate cleanser.
The perfect summer mocktail to keep you cool and hydrated. Did you know lemons can also curb your appetite? They contain pectin – a soluble fibre that creates a feeling of fullness, resulting in the suppression of hunger pangs. Enjoy a refreshing glass 30 mins before your BBQ and watch your portion size diminish.
Honey and Lemon serve a much better purpose than just a cold remedy, dontcha know? This amazing flavour combo works as a delicious ‘cheesecake’ (minus the cheese) in this dairy and gluten free recipe. Perfect for a special occasion, or just a weekday – with ingredients to healthy, who needs an excuse?!
These muffins are perfect for breakfast or brunch, as well as afternoon tea! Dairy and gluten free, your tastebuds and tummy will love them. Swapping flour for almond meal provides a natural source of protein, dietary fibre and vitamin E. It is a great substitute for gluten containing flours and won’t cause tummy bloat. Yippee!
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!
Brussels sprouts aren’t amongst the most well-loved of veggies, but definitely worth a place in your fridge. Not only are they are a good source of protein, iron and potassium (which offer a range of health benefits), but are also high in fibre, keeping you fuller for longer. The lemon in this recipe takes them up a notch from your usual sprouts – adding zing to their earthy flavour.
Don’t miss out on a tasty easter because you’re avoiding the toxic high-sugar fat bombs that line the shelves of every store. You can whip these up in 15 mins – including bake time!
Try this perfect summer salad to fill you up, without weighing you down.
