Pancakes or crepes as they are known in France are one of my favourite things. You can have them as sweet or savoury, for breakfast, lunch or as a snack. Traditional pancakes made with refined flour are a high glycemic food as they will spike your blood sugar pretty quickly. This recipe is made with buckwheat which is actually a fruit seed and not a grain.
Try out this alternative to those sugar laden little chocs that come in the gold wrapper, I promise you will feel truly spoilt ;o)
Courgetti is a great way to get kids and adults alike to eat more veg. It tastes great and you won’t miss the pasta at all. Avocados and cashews add a great source of healthy fats which will make this dish thoroughly satisfying.
This non alcoholic take on the classic Pina Colada cocktail tastes so good you won’t even miss the alcohol. Mint and pineapple are great for digestion and the coconut milk is a great source of healthy fats.
This daal is full of sweet and sour goodness. Lentils are a great source of protein and fibre making them a great choice for a filling and satisfying meal. The pineapple gives this recipe a lovely tangy twist as well as being great for digestion. Bromelain is an enzyme found in pineapple that is a great digestive aid.
These savoury muffins make a great breakfast on the go or a healthy snack.

These wholesome and delicious butternut squash and quinoa bites are so easy to make. They are great for snacking and make a great alternative to greasy deep fried bhajis but you can also add them to wraps and salads or to a homemade tomato sauce as a great alternative to meatballs.
Millet and cauliflower make a great alternative to rice and are super nutritious. Millet is high in protein and fibre, easy to digest, is gluten free and is high in B vitamins. It also contains the amino acid tryptophan, that can help you get a good night’s sleep.
