Light Food -
A Tasty Way To A Healthy Life

Is this you?

  • You love food.
  • You love to eat.
  • But you want to be healthy as well, and want/need to watch your weight, maybe lose a little.
  • But you don’t want to be on a fad diet, don’t want to eat bland food and chew on nothing but a lettuce leaf to achieve it. 

If so, then you have come to the right place. This is what Light Food Full of Flavour is all about – really tasty food which is also healthy and of course light.

You will find:

  • Lots of recipes for tasty and healthy light food
  • Nutritional information
  • Weight loss/maintenance advice 

Eating should be a pleasure. A treat, from time to time, should be compulsory!

This is my philosophy, so I have also added some delicious cake recipes.  

Let's get cooking!

A Taste Of What You Will Find On Light Food Full Of Flavour

Did you know that black pepper contain piperine, a phytochemical which helps your body to absorb more nutrients from the food you eat (see Nutritional Information). 


Breakfast tip!

If you don’t have the time or the appetite to eat before you leave for work, try taking something with you as you are less likely to snack on unhealthy things if you’ve eaten properly in the morning.

This Super-Tasty and Healthy Bircher Muesli is perfect  for doing just that.

Tasty And Healthy Pulses 

Pulses include beans, peas, chickpeas and lentils. Pulses are low in fat and saturates whilst being packed with both insoluble and soluble fibre, protein and a variety of minerals.

Food Combining

Yes, you can do it – be healthy and full of energy and still indulge in food full of flavour.

For the best result, aim to eat food that contains some carbohydrates, a bit more protein and some fat.

What you need to know are which carbohydrates, proteins and fats are the best for you – and how to combine them. Add spices and herbs to this mixture and your food will be both massively flavoursome and good for you.

If you eat the right combinations of carbohydrates, protein and fat, you may also lose weight (see Low-GL Carbohydrates).
