Nutritious Oat and Nut Bars

I love a filling and healthy bar that can be eaten for a quick and filling breakfast or a snack. This bar is filled with healthy goodness such as nuts (walnuts) seeds (pumpkin and sunflower), some fruit (banana) and some dried fruit (Raisins) The walnuts add a lovely crunch, packed with nutrients such as monounsaturated fats and omega-3 fatty acids and helps keep you fuller for longer. The raisins are packed with energy, full of fibre, vitamins, minerals and they add that lovely natural sweetness. Although they are rich in calories, eaten in moderate amounts is good for health.

Turkey Mushroom and Spinach Meatball Curry

We were sitting at home and watching a cooking show, the chef made some meatballs and my son turned to me and said “Can we please make some meatball curry and maybe some Naan to go with it”. So, that is how I ended making this over the weekend. I usually make meatballs with beef but this time I thought I would do it a little differently and the family loved it. The meatballs are a combination of turkey mince, mushrooms, spinach, red onion and some lovely spices. I like to incorporate some veggies into the meatballs so that way … Continue reading Turkey Mushroom and Spinach Meatball Curry

Healthy Low Carb Carrot Walnut Loaf

This loaf is super healthy and delicious. Great for breakfast or a snack and its tastes amazing with a smear of butter on it. This can also be made into muffins. The addition of the yoghurt gives that lovely moist consistency and the butter can be completely eliminated but I find the addition of that bit of butter does add to the flavour. Honey completely replacing the need for any refined sugar making it so much healthier. And the addition of almond flour reduces the amount of plain flour needed making this lower in carb content. This is a healthy … Continue reading Healthy Low Carb Carrot Walnut Loaf

Tandoori Chicken

An easy and simple recipe made with accessible ingredients. The chicken is infused with spices and yoghurt and baked until golden with some charred bits. This tandoori is tender, moist, juicy and so YUM. The yoghurt makes the chicken tender and moist. I made this in my pizza oven this time but have made it many times before in my regular oven. But broiling it is necessary to get the desired charred results. This is quite a healthy dish and keto friendly for those on a keto diet. The traditional tandoori has a deep red colour that can be achieved … Continue reading Tandoori Chicken
