Quinoa and Fig Salad

June 02, 2016

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.

Fish Cakes

January 17, 2016

Love fish but don't know how to cook it?


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!


Spinach, beetroot and pomegranate salad

January 17, 2016

A beautiful marriage of rich colours and nutritious ingredients.

This salad will pair well with almost any meal like steak, chicken, burgers and fish.


Choosing dark green, baby spinach over ordinary lettuce adds more nutritents and anti-oxidants to the meal (deeper the colours= richer in nutrients).

Fresh pomegranate adds zing and a flavour burst in the mouth to contrast the full flavoured spinach leaves.

Add some fresh lemon or a dash of balsamic vinegar to finish the salad off.


Raw chocolate truffles

January 17, 2016

These are a great replacement for a commercial chocolate bar.

They make a great dessert option, snack for the kid's lunchboxes or even a high energy boost for runners and high intensity athletes.

The dates, cocoa and goji berries offer large doses of anti-oxidants as well as B vitamins and fibre.

Honey offers a natural health powerhouse in place of granulated sugar, but you can also replace this with xylitol to reduce to total calories (add it when heating the cocoa mix to dissove it).
