Vegetarian Tortilla Pizza

Vegetarian

Refined Sugar-Free

This is a simple and quick lunch which is ready in about half an hour and tastes delicious. Although I also love making a traditional Italian pizza, they tend to have a lot more calories, carbs and fat – so this is a much healthier option for during the week! Try mixing it up with different toppings like: spinach, mushrooms, sweetcorn, olives, etc. Or switch out the mozzarella for cheddar or parmesan (however I don’t class a pizza as a pizza without fresh mozzarella)!

Thai Sea Bass With Lemon-Garlic Potatoes

Pescatarian

Gluten-Free

Refined Sugar-Free

If I had to pick my favourite fish it would be one of two – sea bass or salmon. This Thai sea bass tastes fresh from the coriander and lime in it’s marinade, but also spicy (you can however take out the chillies if you don’t like spice, it will be just as tasty!). The lemon-garlic potatoes are a healthy choice of carbohydrates which are also full of antioxidants! Serve whatever veg you like with this dish – I chose asparagus and broccoli.

Spicy chicken sesame Noodles

Gluten-Free

Refined Sugar-Free

Bringing you a super easy week-day lunch or dinner that is simply healthy but still so tasty! I have not been eating great lately (maybe it was all that snacking during early lockdown) so a meal like this is just what I needed! Make it vegetarian by substituting the chicken for another protein source or more veg, and make it vegan by doing the same and taking out the fish sauce.

Pasta with Cashew & Thyme Sauce

Vegan

Refined Sugar-Free

When it comes to pasta sauces, I’m a lover of creamy ones – it’s unfortunate they’re probably the least healthiest (cream being high in saturated fat). I thought I’d try out a vegan cashew sauce as I’ve been seeing this a lot lately and it looks like a great way to help those cravings for creamy pasta! Cashew nuts are high in healthy fats, meaning they include monounsaturated fats which are scientifically proven to be associated with lower unhealthy cholesterol! They are also rich in protein and can help boost your immune system – and they make an extremely tasty, creamy pasta sauce!

Chicken, Mozzarella and Roasted Red Pepper Salad

With Chunky Homemade Croutons

Refined Sugar-Free

I find that homemade salads are so much better for you than shop-bought – they usually have unnecessary ingredients in the dressing and croutons are very high in fat! I’ve made this super easy salad with some tasty herby chicken, roasted red peppers (if you don’t use these in salads you NEED to start) and fresh mozzarella which is high in protein. I also made homemade croutons with wholemeal bread – the good thing about making these yourself is that you don’t use as much oil and can control how crispy they get in the oven!! Give this salad a go and switch some ingredients up if you like!

Fresh Peach & Quinoa Salad

With Cucumber & a Coriander Dressing

Vegan

Gluten-Free

Refined Sugar-Free

I’ve never been much of a “fruit in salad” kind of person but this was such a delicious lunch and made me think how I’m going to experiment more with fruit in savoury dishes from now on! The sweetness of the peaches really worked well in the salad, especially since (in my opinion) quinoa is very bland by itself. Plus, the cucumber added a refreshing crunch and the super easy coriander and lemon dressing jazzed the whole thing up!
