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.

Start your day with a super nutritious celery, cucumber and ginger juice. Click on Ginger-Root - A Fiery Healer for recipe. 

Tips for healthy breakfast bread toppings. This photo is of avocado and soft-boiled egg on sourdough bread which is both filling and healthy, as well as very tasty.

Vegetarian Chilli Recipes

I get a lot of requests for vegetarian chilli recipes and I am more than happy to oblige.

Click on the photos below for some of my hot&spicy vegetarian dishes.

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).
