My love of all things wheat probably vouches for my sensitivity to gluten. Thus, one of the main challenges in eating well for me lies in cutting out processed flour products. A while ago, I actually did a detox/reset and cut out all gluten (and all processed foods and sugar) from my diet for about 2 weeks. The day I reintroduced gluten, I remember only too well..

If you are stuck for dinner or lunch (or breakfast), this is an easy and nutritious alternative. You can even make it the night before and take it as an office or on-the-go lunch.
Okay, so this is one of the ugliest dishes I have ever made. Ha ha… I promise though, that what it lacks in beauty, it makes up in taste 120%. This chili is full of rich flavours, warming spices and nutritious goodness that will make you wish you had prepared more.

Wraps are great and so incredibly versatile. Whilst examining the contents of my fridge for something palatable, I often resort to wraps. For breakfast, a wrap works fantastically with a banana and some peanut butter and linseeds in it. And I love a wrap with greens, smoked salmon and avocado for lunch or a light dinner.
Sweet potato pizzas! Why didn’t I think of this before? It is such a simple concept, yet is absolutely delicious and goes down well with the small people too so that is a definite bonus as well!
Part of my new workout routine often has me out doing a session in the evenings after dinnertime with my family. Therefore, I am on a quest for new ways to keep dinner light yet nutritious.
