I’m taking some much needed time off this summer; it has been a fantastically busy and exciting year so far and I feel honoured and humbled by all that has happened. But I recognise the importance of self-care and how vital it is to slow down, so I am following... Continue reading

Hello summertime! Wimbledon is over and if you are fortunate to be going away, the heady nights of sun, sea and sex (if you are that lucky!) are just around the corner. I joke but, for many, holidays can be a real challenge - the last minute panic to be... Continue reading

Not in my wildest dreams did I imagine that just seven months on from the publication of my first book, I would be announcing the second. Having been busy-as-a-bee in my kitchen these past few months, I am bursting to tell you that in response to your rambunctious calls for... Continue reading

Rhubarb, the outlandishly coloured vegetable (it's not a fruit!), is in season right now. It is a nostalgic, old-fashioned veg with uber-modern appeal. Partner it with meat (lamb or beef), oily fish such as mackerel, cheeses such as goat's cheese, or sprinkled raw onto salads - rhubarb has much wider... Continue reading

Prep time: 5 minutes Cook time: 8 minutes Serves 4-6 I think every fridge should have some frittata slices in it. Possibly the easiest and swiftest meal to make, it stores well and is just as tasty cold as when straight out of the oven. It works for any meal... Continue reading

Prep time: 10 minutes Cook time: 8 minutes Serves 2-4 These kebabs are very simple and I think look so pretty. They are delicious on their own or with a fresh green salad and are also a perfect healthy barbecue option. This recipe works just as well with prawns, chicken... Continue reading

Prep time: 10 minutes Freezing time: 3-4 hours Serves 6 I’m always being asked by clients for healthy sweet treats. It’s something I struggle with, as while I don’t encourage deprivation, I also try not to encourage a sweet tooth or dependency on using food as a ‘treat’. However, the... Continue reading

Prep time: 5 minutes Serves 2 Often I find that my clients struggle to think outside the box with salads and a meagre concoction of lettuce, tomato and cucumber can quickly get boring. For me it’s all about the marriage of flavours, colours and textures, but also what’s in the... Continue reading

Prep time: 10 minutes Cook time: 5 minutes Serves 2 One of the most important aspects of a clean diet is to ensure that we are getting our daily greens! I am forever encouraging my clients to make their diets more plant based (instead of grain based). I always get... Continue reading

Prep time: 5 minutes Serves 2 I like to use a smoothie as a route to packing in as many nutrients as possible. There are so many healthy powders and supplements that I struggle to take as I don’t like the taste particularly, but a smoothie is a great way... Continue reading

Prep time: 5 minutes Standing time: 30 minutes Serves 2 I got into using chia seeds for breakfast as an alternative to porridge a few years ago. It’s quite a magical little seed, a nutritional powerhouse, bursting with omega-3 fatty acids, vitamins, antioxidants, fibre, calcium and protein – ticks all... Continue reading

Prep time: 15 minutes Serves 2 Many of us skip breakfast using lack of time or not feeling hungry as an excuse and opting just for a coffee instead. While I don’t think everyone needs to eat breakfast, they need to have good habits and structure before they remove this... Continue reading

Prep time: 10 minutes Cooking time: 10 minutes Serves 4 When I first started to eat more healthily, I was under the assumption that comfort food such as a burger was out for good. But that’s just not the case. All burgers are not created equally and if you can... Continue reading

Today has been one of those days where I've had to pinch myself repeatedly - I've had quite a few of those sort of days recently, but this has been an especially rare and extraordinary one. I was privileged to be invited to appear on NBC's The Today Show in... Continue reading

I was privileged to be invited to appear on ITV's This Morning with Philip & Amanda. I confess to being a little nervous prior to the LIVE recording but it was enormous fun! It's worth a watch if only to see Philip's response to the taste of chia seeds. The... Continue reading

This is a brilliant (and far more delicious) alternative to pasta. The courgette/zucchini linguine is made using a spiralizer, but you can easily substitute this with a vegetable peeler. It's perfect for spring as we start to crave lighter, fresher meals. I love this recipe and serve it often to... Continue reading

Asparagus, one of the first vegetables of the year to be harvested, is now in season here in the UK. It's a short season, so make the most of them! High in antioxidants, vitamins A and C, potassium, iron and calcium, asparagus are also diuretic, carry anti-inflammatory properties and can... Continue reading

I am quite unashamedly delighted to say that I am now a best selling author! The book raced up the charts and was listed in The Sunday Times Top 10 best sellers. Best of all, it went to reprint in only the second week of publication. This week sees its... Continue reading
