Easter Eating: 5 Delicious Ways with Lamb

It will come as no surprise to learn that lamb is full of protein and iron, as many red meats are.  What you may not know however, is that it contains some fantastic vitamins and minerals and is super high in Omega-3s and 6s.  It’s also far easier to digest than beef. Gram for gram, […]

Spicy Chickpea Salad (Garbanzo beans for my US subscribers)

Chickpeas are nothing less than fabulous. They are full of fibre, most of which is insoluble meaning that these little nuggets help keep guts clean and healthy, and tummies flat. They are protein powerhouses, great as an alternative to meat, and children tend to love them as they are mildly flavoured and take on the […]

Sweet and Smoky Maple Marinaded Chicken – Weekend Food

The Spring Equinox has passed and the sunny days make me want to eat summery food. The cold evenings however don’t make me want to BBQ my dinner each night.  This sweet and smoky (and very simple) marinaded chicken gets a BBQ type flavour from the marinade, but is cooked in the oven and finished […]

Moroccan Lamb Meatballs

My toddler and I have something in common, we both love meatballs.  I love them for their versatility, to be dressed up with sexy salads and sauces for a dinner party or equally delicious popped in a pitta for a quick dinner, for their make ahead-and-freezability and the endless flavour options.  She loves them as […]

Clean Chocolatey Crispy Cakes (no gluten, dairy or refined sugar)

I love Arabella helping me to cook, she likes to think she is helpful and I like that she has another little bit of variation to her day.  She has made clouds from icing sugar (fun to clean up), chocolate from chopped dates, and crisps from pumpkin seeds.  Her interpretations are nothing less than biblical. […]

On The Pulse: My Top 5 Pulse Dishes

Let’s call them legumes, it sounds so much sexier, and let’s face it, these simple foods need their reputation sexing up a bit.  I wrote a tongue in cheek intro to a recipe a while ago that includes lentils, about how I love Puy lentils, and I am not a hippie, I don’t knit my […]

SpanaNOpita: Greek Spinach and Feta Pie (minus the pastry)

Spanakopita, the Greek spinach and feta filo encased pie, has to be one of my favourite dishes. We eat it alone, with BBQ food, cold from the fridge or as part of Mediterranean feast.  However the crispy buttery filo pastry crust makes it more of an food indulgence and less easy to whip up in […]

Baked Breakfast Eggs

I always feel better when I have protein in my breakfast.  I’m less hungry throughout the morning and my blood sugar level is steady.  I do have a container of the commonly seen protein shake mix in the cupboard, but it’s pretty far from food in its natural state, which is what I try to […]
