Right in time to keep you on track in your New Year cleanse, this vibrant pink smoothie recipe makes healthy living and dieting delicious. It contains kale, a super vegetable which is full of goodness, yet you can barely detect it's presence in this smoothie rich in fruity flavours.
Naturally gluten-free and as near-as-damn-it to a healthy but actually nice tasting, and not entirely made of coconuts, avocados and dates, blondie as one could possibly make. Indeed, they have passed the all-important kid and pensioner test. You are welcome.
Most of us don't eat enough fish. The UK government guidelines say (and I know we don't trust them after they cut our recommended booze allowance, but still) we should eat two helpings per week, one of which should be an oily fish. This is a good place to start.
What's in a name? Well, if the name is 'chicken nuggets', it could be up to 14 different ingredients, according to research published yesterday by the University of Nottingham.
Did you know that's it's national breakfast week? So to celebrate my favourite meal of the day (in fact I go to bed dreaming about what I'm going to have for breakfast the next day!) I thought I'd share some breakfast inspiration...
Have you ever wondered if there is anything you can drink to help prevent breast cancer? Well the latest research shows that there certainly is. Many studies have shown that green tea has amazing anti-cancer properties, which make it an ideal drink for anyone trying to live a healthy life.
Like most women I have navigated most of my life through a smorgasbord of insults and 'compliments' regarding my body - more often than not comments that somehow compared my body to food. I had to learn fast what food types it was ok to be and what were definitely not.
Despite my decision to remain laidback over other people's choices, I've been surprised to see I was experiencing the reverse: Healthy Shaming. In other words, being shamed for my healthy choices, asking to see allergen menus and for well... being 'a bit boring.' So here's the worst 'healthy shaming' phrases I've heard recently...
So this recipe is in spite of everything I've been seeing on my Instagram feed recently of spicing up kale crisps as a treat! This is a treat. A real, pure, unadulterated treat which should be treated with care in the administering and devouring of this delicious baklava (or baklava) recipe.
Many people feel that it is tough to eat clean and healthy while on a tight budget. They feel deprived of nutritious meals that actively contributes to their well-being, as good food has a reputation for being much more expensive than unhealthy food.
Just delicious, accessible food that all generations can get stuck into preparing and eating together. That happens to be sugar free. Oh, and ideally involves only a single mixing bowl or oven dish so very little washing up (you've got to dream, haven't you?)
The reduction in calories is at worst 10%, though scientists (who are these people who go around chucking coconut oil into rice all day?) think they could reduce the calories by as much as 60% with some varieties.
I love the gorgeous green colour from the spinach and peas and you're getting some great nutrients from the iron in the spinach, protein rich peas and the high levels of vitamin C in cauliflower. Better still, it tastes delicious!
Here we go again. Amidst the gloom of a drop in temperature, dark mornings and evenings, we are being pedalled false promises on the back of yet more 'wonder diets' that will magically transform us all from sofa-bound blubbers to lean muscular nymphs. Why are we still falling for this nonsense?
Choosing to eat organic food where we can and making sure that most days we are eating the right fuel for our bodies. Protein, fats and carbohydrates need to feature in every meal without fail to ensure our blood sugars and hormones are really stable. Removing glutens and sugars are really important for optimum health
I like chickpeas. I mean I like hummus. The peas themselves, well they have a very mild flavour. That's why they are perfect to sprinkle them with all those strong, aromatic spices like turmeric, smoked paprika and cayenne pepper. So this is exactly what we are doing here.
