Salads don't have to be a cool treat in spring or summer, they can also be served warm for autumn and winter.
Try this ADSA certified Quinoa and FIg Salad, a great way of combining a great whole grain like quinoa with a sweet, high fibre fruit like figs.
Add extra sundried tomatoes, pomegranate rubies or swap out the regular quinoa for red quinoa, for a colour burst. The Dijon mustard dressing can also be swapped for a lemon juice based dressing or vinaigrette.
I get this comment quite often from my clients and here's an easy solution, homemade fish cakes!
The fish filling can be changed depending on what you have at home, from salmon, sardines or hake to tuna and much more.
Fish cakes are a great way to get in your healthy, omega 3 rich, oily fish allowance and they do not have to be deep fried, you can cook using Spray and Cook, minimal amounts of olive oil, or bake them in the oven.
This recipes also comes with a handy salad and lemon sauce for ultimate flavour.
ADSA (Association for Dietetics in South Africa) have some really lovely and healthy recipes!
