Banana crumpets with cream cheese, pistachios and rice syrup

These banana crumpets with cream cheese are dressed in pistachios, seeds and lashings of brown rice syrup.

Healthy homemade chocolate, fruit and nut trail mix

I’ve started buying little packets of trail mix this year because I promised myself to only nibble on healthier snacks. I’ve been going through indecent amounts, so it’s high time for me to prepare some of my own homemade trail mix. You can play around with healthy ingredients, but keep in the chocolate.

Chocolate and Clementine Popcorn

Making homemade sweet popcorn is super easy and fun. Holding the lid down as the hard little kernels loudly pop and bash against the sides of the saucepan never gets old.

Kicking Chicken Lickin’ Salad

Think of this as the best spicy healthy Coronation Chicken Salad recipe. It is an easy recipe and makes a delicious and healthy lunch, picnic salad or alfresco supper. It’s a great recipe to use leftovers, whether it’s chicken or turkey. The textures are wonderful with soft chicken, bites of juicy peppers and sweetcorn snuggling…

My favourite quinoa salad with pomegranate and pistachios

This started life as an Ottolenghi recipe, but over the years this quinoa salad with pomegranate and pistachios has been adapted time and time again. I’ve now settled with this quick and healthy version. It’s a perfect side salad to have up your sleeve for bbq’s and family get-togethers. It also makes a brilliantly healthy…
