This is a healthy, fast and delicious breakfast that a friend of mine invented when we had no bread or cereal in the house, and we've all been hooked on it since! You can use whatever fruit and flavour of yoghurt you want, anything goes - my personal favourite is made with apple and banana with coconut yoghurt.
FOG stands for Full of Goodness and it uses all the 5 vegetables that you need for your daily allowance. I made up this soup after I found a few odd veggies in the fridge. It's great for lunch with a bit of bread. This recipe is for one, but can easily be doubled, tripled, etc. for more!
This is an easy recipe for those who want to stay in shape, but want to indulge in a sweet treat every now and then.
A healthy, light smoothie ideal for having as a substitute for snacking. A great option for getting in your five a day.
This super thick and creamy fruit smoothie is a firm favourite in my home and with friends, and is a great way of ensuring your contributing to your 5 a day. Full of flavour and packed with vitamins, antioxidants and fibre. For an extra healthy boost, sprinkle in some flax seeds. This was a firm favourite of mine in the summer months to drink after working out.
This great smoothie is easy to make and uses simple everyday fruit! All quantities are equal e.g. 100g of apple and 100g of grapes.
I make homemade yoghurt, and also have tried making home-tinned peaches in syrup (the recipe is on the site). I put half of a very ripe peach into yoghurt with some syrup from my homemade peaches. There is no need to add sugar - it is delightfully sweet.
Strawberries blended with lemon curd yoghurt for a deliciously rich smoothie.
This creamy pilaf incorporates the fluffy, nutty-flavoured grain, quinoa, with a decadent and delicious hard goat cheese. This has an amazing flavour and texture. Try serving with steamed salmon. I think this would work well with pine nuts as well as a variety of other cheeses.
When it is hot, and you'd like something quick and nutritious, here is an ultra-easy recipe, made in 5 minutes, that offers a different flavour.
