This is a recipe for one of my favourite salads I've made over the past few weeks. We have so many tomatoes in the garden at the moment so it's a great way to use them up. You can serve this salad as a main at lunchtime or it'll make a great side salad to accompany a BBQ.
Beetroot & Feta Fritters. These fritters are moist and full of flavour. They can be made small or large and are great as part of a meal or a snack. Serve them with pitta bread, humous and salad for a tasty lunch.
Energy balls are so quick to make and great to have at arms reach. Being diabetic, I have to constantly keep control of my blood sugars so if they start to drop an energy ball can boost them back up to where they need to be. They have sweetness from dates and slow releasing energy from the oats so work perfectly as a mid morning snack or a little treat after lunch. If you are gluten free please miss out the oats and increase the nuts and dates a little.
My blog this week is to help you create an exciting green salad rather than just throwing a bit of lettuce and cucumber into a bowl. It’s simple to prepare, tastes delicious and adds a bit of excitement to your salad bowl.
Kale is a great vegetable, full of beneficial nutrients and in season at the moment, but sometimes it can be a little boring. Normally it is just steamed and added to the side of your meal and you may eat it because you know its good for you but really its not your favourite. Sound familiar?
A few weeks ago on my menu were these delicious energy balls. They consisted of a base of cacao, almonds, dates, oats, peanut butter and coconut oil which were blended togther and rolled into balls. I then blitz some freeze-dried strawberry pieces into powder and rolled the balls in this. As well as looking great, they also gave you that dark chocolate hit with the added sweetness and flavour of the strawberries.
Pancake day is fast approaching so I thought that I would share with you a healthy and delicious recipe. These pancakes puff up like American Style ones and are naturally sweet by the banana and raspberries you use. Feel free swop the raspberries with any other berries you fancy.
This salad is really fresh and can be eaten hot or cold. The honey & mustard dressing adds a little sweetness and brings the dish together. Don't worry if you don't have all the ingredients, the kale can be substituted for another green leafy veg and the broccoli for cauliflower or carrots.
