I hardly used to eat any vegetables so the fact that this salad is made up of kale of all things means it had to be pretty tasty! This is now one of my all time favourite kale recipes that I go back to again and again...

I like to pop these in the freezer for about an hour and then take them out for a few minutes before serving. This recipe doesn't make too many but they're rich and moreish and you could always double the recipe if you're craving more!

Shaved Asparagus Salad

New season English asparagus is naturally sweet and grassy and is just as good raw as cooked. Try it this way with fresh, raw broad beans and peas in a lemony, creamy vinaigrette and sprinkle over a handful of quickly sizzled smoked pancetta as I did, or dollops of soft goats' cheese.

Devotees swear that a ten-day stay at a Mayr clinic leaves them several kilos lighter, fresh-faced, well-rested and miraculously rid of any rashes, bodily aches or stomach rumblings, but there was a resounding complaint: the decor.

When dividing the base and top chocolate layers, make sure you have equal amounts for top and bottom. Use a serrated knife to cut when ready....Keep in the freezer, to prevent you from eating too much, and the chocolate melting!!!

Keep in the freezer so you can always have a healthy treat on hand when unexpected guests descend on you! Once set in the freezer, I like to cut into slices, so its ready to serve when needed. If you don't like sultanas you could add dried pineapple pieces.

There's absolutely nothing wrong with having a sweet tooth or looking forward to a delicious dessert to complete a healthy meal but with science now telling us sugar may actually be worse than salt for raising blood pressure, it makes good sense to try and find recipes that deliver healthier but still delicious desserts, some of which may even be completely sugar-free.

I love tiramisu. Seriously...it's the perfect not too sweet, light and creamy treat - dessert does not have to be a guilt-ridden pleasure. This one is delicious and full of precious nutrients and it's wonderful as it's dairy free, with no added preservative or additives.

Serve however you like - I eat mine by the spoonful. But you could add on top of some banana "ice-cream", on top of muesli or nuts, onto raw desserts, onto some sprouted toast, just however you take you jam you'll want it be as good as this!

'Lather on the sunscreen if you want to be safe in the sun' is the word on the street and yet I beg to differ. I have rather controversial views on sun protection and really believe that we need a fresh approach.

We've all heard the old adage "You are what you eat" but how often do we really stop and think about what we are fueling our body with? It is so easy to grab the nearest snack, and fill up on junk to fill our hunger without really being conscious of what effect that food is having on our body.

Plodding away on that treadmill may leave you thinking only of the destination of loosing that stubborn five pounds/that muffin top etc; but you can lose a whole day biking in Epping Forest or the South Downs, or kayaking in Snowdonia and not realise how many calories you've burned through.

As we veer into an age of hyper-awareness, the ethics of how we use such knowledge is more pertinent than ever.

I am a huge fan of chia seed. Chia is an ancient superfood staple of the Incan, Mayan and Aztec cultures which means means 'strength' in Mayan so it is not surprising that they have earned the nickname 'Indian Running Food'.
