These egg and vegetable muffins are packed with courgette, carrot, peas, eggs and feta cheese. Make them for your toddler as a high protein snack, or for lunch.
They are also fantastic for mum too if made in larger muffin holders, and can also be eaten for breakfast with some cucumber & carrot sticks or cherry tomatoes.

These overnight oats are best served the next day but keep well in the fridge for up to 3 days. Why not double/triple this recipe to keep you going for multiple mornings?!
Gluten-Free: Make sure that your oats are certified gluten-free.
Vegan: Use maple syrup rather than honey and plant-based milk and yoghurt.

This little dish can be substituted for potato salad. You can jazz it up by adding some toasted sesame seeds, chopped chives and gherkins. You can eat it with rye crackers or wrap it in lettuce leaves or nori sheets. If you wrap it in nori sheets you can add some grated carrot before rolling... just use your imagination ! :))
Yield: Makes 2 servings
*A thicker cottage cheese works best here. If yours contains more liquid, let it drain in a fine sieve before mixing.

This a summer pudding which I invented. It can be eaten as breakfast or as a refreshing afternoon snack. It is also high in protein so works well as a recovery snack after a workout. The chia seeds supply some protein and omega-3's ! It can be enjoyed by the whole family.
450g Yogurt --> I use goat's/sheeps a brand which is not so sour in taste.
2 cups fruit (my favourite are strawberries, cherries, mixed forest fruits, apricots, peaches, nectarines)
3 Tablespoons chia seeds
2 Tablespoons raw unprocessed honey or other sweetener of choice
1 Tablespoon Stevia powder
2 Gelatin sachets (about a tablespoon each) dissolved in warm water
Add all the ingredients in a food processor. Blend for a minute. Pour the mixture into a bowl or mold, place in the fridge for at least three hours to set. Enjoy !
3 Tablespoons fresh lemon juice
2 teaspoons mustard
1 Tablespoon apple cider vinegar
Sea salt to taste
3 Tablespoons tahini
3 Tablespoons water
2 heads butter or other green lettuce, shredded
2 green onions, sliced finely
1 cucumber, grated
1 small bunch red radishes, grated
4 cups cooked black beans (or use canned or from a jar )
2 Tablespoons minced fresh corriander OR 1 teaspoon ground corriander
Blend lemon juice, mustard, vinegar, tahini and water together to make the dressing. (For more Mexican dressing, use 3 Tablespoons salsa, 1 Tablespoon sesame oil, and 1/2 teaspoon salt or 1 teaspoon tamari). Assemble all other ingredients in salad bowl and toss with dressing.
6 chicken breasts
6 pieces parchment paper
1 stalk celery, minced
1 onion minced
1 teaspoon thyme
1 teaspoon marjoram
1 teaspoon herb salt
Black pepper or cayenne pepper
6 Tablespoons lemon juice
6 Tablespoons dry white wine (optional)
parsley to garnish
Preheat oven to 190C.
Season chicken breasts on both sides and place on paper squares. Place celery, onion and herbs on the chicken, add lemon juice, pepper, and wine, and fold ends of paper upward to form a little package.
Bake for 30 minutes. Before serving garnish with fresh parsley.
Note: You can use a covered pyrex baking dish for baked chicken breasts not "en chemise."
Note: I sometimes swop walnuts or sunflower seeds for the pine nuts and feta for the parmesan. Use your imagination ! :))
