    Healthy Doner Kebab

    Healthy Doner Kebab – Not really words you tend to hear together. But it is possible! I used to quite enjoy a dirty doner after a night out but the diet life put a stop to that… Shortly followed by the Gluten Free life. You just can’t guarantee what’s in one of those huge, rotary lamb slabs. But I’m guessing it’s about 95% fat and the rest is probably breadcrumbs. Even if I could eat gluten, the amount of fat dripping from them now puts me off anyway. I’m just not a fan of proper greasy food any more. It always made me feel rubbish and I refuse to let…

    Chicken Mayonnaise Pasta Salad

    Summer is nearly upon us again… Well it should be but the weather has still been a bit naff! I’m sure this time last year I had the start of a golden tan. But anyway, summer means salads for me. There’s nothing better than nice crisp vegetables when it’s warm out. My only issue is, salad alone just doesn’t fill me up. Which is why I love this Chicken Mayonnaise Pasta Salad. It’s a good mix of stodgy carbs and tasty veggies. I tend to have it with some crispy lettuce leaves too. Mine is made with gluten free pasta but you can make it with normal stuff. Due to…

    Roasted Sweet Red Pepper And Tomato Risotto

    I love a rice dish! They’re perfect for any time of the year and always guaranteed to fill a hungry tummy. This particular recipe is vegan, gluten free and dairy free but doesn’t compromise on taste whatsoever! I’m not even vegetarian but I would like to try a few more veggie/vegan recipes this year. I really enjoy a good veg based meal so there’s no reason to have meat every day. It also reduces calories so win win really! Risotto is one of my favourite rice dishes and speaking of meat, you can find my chicken and bacon risotto recipe here. Ingredients (Serves a family of 4) 2 large sweet,…

    Healthier Lemon and Coriander Hummus

    It’s probably the wrong time of the year to be making a new hummus recipe but I had some while I was away at the weekend and got a real taste for it again. I was on holiday though so keeping an eye on the calories I was consuming had gone out the window. This meant, I needed to make a lower calorie, low fat version of course! I can guarantee I will keep tweaking this recipe as I always do. I thought I’d share it though as this makes such a tasty lunch or snack! You will need a blender of some description to make this. Ingredients 1 Tin…

    Carrot And Coriander Soup With Crunchy Croutons

    Soup weather is definitely upon us. It’s chilly outside, even when it’s sunny! All I want to do is wrap up on the sofa in a big jumper with a mug of something warm. Soup is definitely the ideal food for this time of the year and you can find a couple of recipes for different ones here and here. My croutons have been made with gluten free bread and the soup is naturally gluten free! If you are on a diet plan then this is a perfect recipe for you too!` You will need a hand blender or food processor for this Carrot and Coriander Soup recipe. Ingredients for the Carrot and…

    Fajita Chicken – 2 Ways

    We have a thing for Mexican in our house. Well, apart from the toddler but he’s in the “I don’t like it!” stage. We don’t tend to have roasts on a Sunday, we either have Mexican or a curry. It’s kind of a picky dinner night where things get put in the table and you help yourself. Standard wraps in the UK are made from wheat flour which is annoying for me. Proper Mexican tortilla’s are made from corn which makes them naturally Gluten Free! Can you tell it annoys me slightly? Hehe! So anyway, because of this I couldn’t be bothered to buy GF wraps. I decided I would…

    Taco Mince

    I got asked for my Taco Mince recipe a few times after I posted my dinner on Instagram last week. I don’t make my taco filling overly spicy as the kids both eat it so this is a family friendly recipe… As if I’d do anything but! The toddler has pasta with his though because, well, toddler. It does have a slight kick but it’s definitely not the spiciest thing I cook. This makes enough to fill 12 taco shells so plenty for the whole family. I usually serve mine with some rice too, just to make sure everyone is full. If you want to make this the most amazing…

    5 Healthy Lunches You Need To Have This Week

    This is a bit of a recap post; looking back at some of my favourite, healthy lunches that are perfect  for taking to work! Just make sure you write your name on your lunchbox so no one can use that excuse when they steal it from the staffroom fridge. These recipes are best made the night before and some do keep for a few days so actually, they’ll last for more than one lunchtime. We’ll start with my absolute favourite and the one I personally make for lunch (and snacks) the most often. Curry Loaf This is so unbelievably easy to make as long as you find the right ingredients.…

    Katsu Curry

    I’ve been meaning to make my own Katsu Curry sauce for ages! I have had Katsu since being gluten free but it was a shop bought one from Tesco. Don’t get me wrong, it was beautiful but at £3 for 1 meal it’s a bit on the expensive side! This version works out really cheap in comparison and it served 2 adults and a toddler. A toddler who I never expected to touch his dinner, especially not the sauce. But he did, and had extra sauce! I was more than happy to share mine with him given it’s vegetable based! I make mine gluten free by using gluten free bread…

    Creamy Chicken Pasta

    I normally try making recipes at least twice before I post them on my blog but I had quite a few requests on all my social media accounts for this Creamy Chicken Pasta. It was quite simple to make and it came out really well so there’s no point holding out to make it a second time. Everyone in my house thouroughly enjoyed this and it’s definitely going to be something I make regularly as it’s not much effort to make which is right up my street these days! This does require a slow cooker but it’s not a recipe you can leave all day as it doesn’t take long…
