Cauliflower Fried Rice

Now don’t let this post fool you…I’m not a firm believer that carbs/grains/whatever are the enemy and should never pass the lips, it’s just that sometimes I like to get some extra serves of vegetables into my day and substituting rice with cauliflower is an easy way to up the intake and lighten the load. … Continue reading

Garlic Seafood Pizza

Happy pizza day! Once you get in the habit of making your own pizza dough you will never again buy those store bought ones. These are thin and crispy and taste utterly delicious.

Chicken, beetroot and feta salad

  So I’ve discovered a new product in the refrigerator section of the supermarket. Love Beets have produced a ready to eat beetroot product. Now normally I’m a little against the processing of foods but this small package is quite the time saver and more importantly there has been nothing untoward added to the goodness … Continue reading

Spanakopita

Spanakopita is a Greek classic. Spinach and feta encased in gossamer thin filo pastry. The husband’s grandmother (Yia Yia in Greek) used to make it from scratch, rolling out the pastry herself, a skill I definitely do not possess. As luck would have it though, those lovely whisper thin pieces of pastry are in the freezer … Continue reading

Mussels with White Wine & Chilli

When it comes to omega-3 more often than not oily fish like salmon are the first foods that come to mind but don’t discount the mussel. Shellfish can make a good dent in our necessary intake as well. At 200 mg per 100 g serve, they have the same content as a fillet of snapper … Continue reading

Bean Burrito Bowl

This recipe is my ode to the perpetually busy woman (or man). Sometimes the best way to maintain healthy eating habits is to take the question mark out of the equation….you know those moments, you’re approaching lunch time, your head is in the fridge wondering what to have. It is precisely at those times that … Continue reading
