    Grilled chicken with sautéed Veg

    I recently read a book called ‘The Calorie Myth’ and according to this book I should aim to get at least 30g of protein per meal and at least 10 portions of veg throughout the day. This veg portion seems a lot for me, especially since, after scrutinizing my diet, I realised I was only eating around 1-2 portions a day.

    Chicken with Cashew Nut Curry Sauce

    I’m getting a bit obsessed with kitchen gadgets these days – so far I have Nutribullet, Spiralizer, Food Processor, Juicer, Yoghurt Maker, Slicer Dicer, Mandolin Slicer, Grater… The list goes on and the kitchen gets more cluttered. Anyway – decided to try this recipe for cashew nut curry because it meant I could play with my Nutribullet.

    Ratatouille

    I have always struggled to make nice ratatouille. I used to cut everything in disc shapes and spray with low cal spray. Finally someone told me to stop using spray and use olive oil; once I did this, all was well 🙂

    Courgette & Baking Paper Crisps

    This might sound like a weird title for a post, but you will get it when/if you read on. Not sure what my inspiration was, but whilst staring into space at work I decided I wanted to try and make my own crisps. I figured if it was made with vegetables then I could eat an unlimited amount without feeling guilty.
