Asian Shiitake Mushroom Fish Parcel

I’m slowly starting to realise that Asian is one of my favourite cuisines to cook. The aromas of lime, lemon grass, ginger and sesame oil are just so beautiful, especially when they hit your nose as the steam escapes this delicious fish parcel. Hake is such an easy, lean and affordable protein to cook with. You could use any other white fish, especially if you prefer

Soy Tofu Poke Bowl

Been posting a few tofu recipes and lately and this one is also a favorite of mine. What I like about this bowl is that you can add anything and everything that you have in your cupboard or fridge. It is a great way to use up some rice from the night before or some cabbage that is lingering in the fridge. It is a great

Gluten Free Brownies

This recipe is just yum! It may not be as super nourishing but its ok to indulge sometimes and it still has some great health benefits too. It has a slightly different consistency to other brownies due to the almond flour and desiccated coconut, but it is still sticky, chocolatey and yum. Raw cocoa is full of polyphenols which act as very strong antioxidants in the body.

Melanzane

 What a delicious recipe to make when you have eggplants lying around. This version is gluten-free and is pretty simple to make. You can also sub out some of the cheese I used and replace it with cashew nut cheese for a vegan version. I love using lots of basil as it amps up the flavor and provides it with polyphenols which increase our anti-oxidant pathways

Spinach, Feta & Tomato Frittata

What a great recipe to use up all your odds and ends vegetables that are lying around in the fride. You can also use frozen spinach, which will work just as well. A combination of fresh , frozen and tinned foods is what supplies us with the most nutrients, as often many frozen vegetables are at their peak nutritional capacity when they are frozen. Obviously some nutrient

Veganism – the low down

It’s the latest trend, the Game Changer’s athletes’ choice, the planet savers’ contribution, and the plant -based burgers’ income. The real question is, what does science say about veganism and do we have enough conclusive evidence about it and its plant-based substitutes?!   Veganism goes beyond the diet. It’s a philosophy defined by a way of living which seeks to exclude all forms of exploitation to animals.

Green Tahina

I always recommend to my patients, when planning their meals for the week, to make one dressing or dip on the weekends - when they might have time - and store it in the fridge. By doing so, you are not only adding extra nutritional value to your meal, but you are also keeping your meals interesting, especially if you vary them from week to week. I

Chimichurri Chicken Breasts

An easy, light chicken dish that will take under 20 minutes to prepare. The herbaceous and spicy chimichurri sauce can even be made in advance and stored in an airtight bottle in the fridge to be used over other proteins, pastas or even salads. The coriander and parsley are high in the bioactive ingredient quercetin, which acts as an antioxidant in the body. They also contain a

Red Kidney Bean and Mango Salad

This tropical salad is wonderful as an accompaniment to a braai or even a casual weeknight’s supper’s protein. The great thing about this salad is that it has both edamame beans and red kidney beans, which are fantastic plant-based protein sources. This makes the salad very versatile as it can be eaten as a meal on its own, when its to hot to get in the
