Christmas Pomegranate Salad

Christmas Pomegranate Salad

Gluten Free – Low Carb – Dairy Free – Diabetic Friendly – Vegetarian In keeping with the true colours of Christmas, I created this delicious recipe that will really brighten up your table on Christmas day.   But the best thing about this salad (aside from the beautiful array of colour) is that you will be eating your way to better health, thanks to the bountiful nutritional benefits of pomegranate!  Pomegranate is renowned for being rich in antioxidants, which can help to prevent LDL (bad cholesterol) from oxidizing, helping to prevent atherosclerosis and reduce the build of plaque in the arteries, whilst increasing levels of HDL (good cholesterol).  Research has indicated that the compounds in pomegranate may

Goat Feta & Toasted Almond Quinoa Salad

Goat Feta & Toasted Almond Quinoa Salad

  Vegetarian, Gluten Free, Sugar Free, Cows Dairy Free , Diabetic Friendly, Anti Candida This recipe is so easy and absolutely delicious thanks to combination of fresh ingredients. It can be adapted to be vegetarian or you can add some organic chicken for added animal protein if you fancy. I love using quinoa as a lower carbohydrate alternative to rice and other grains. Quinoa is actually a seed and comes in red, black and white varieties. It’s higher in protein than many grains, which enables your body to burn it up more slowly, leaving you fuller for longer. To make life easy for yourself, make up enough to last 2

Mango, Macadamia & Snow Pea Salad

Mango, Macadamia & Snow Pea Salad

  Summer’s fast approaching and that means mangoes! I have whipped up this delicious salad to spice up your next lunch and the toasted macadamia’s add an amazing flavour with the snow peas and mango. I must admit, I do not eat a lot of fruit, aside from grapefruit, lemons, strawberries, blue berries and raspberries with the odd banana in a protein shake, because I don’t like to over do the fructose (the naturally occuring sugar in fruit) so I go for the lowest sugar fruits. So mangoes are a bit of treat for me and I really enjoy them
