Why London? Why NYC? These are two places where there is a concentration of English speaking people who are open and curious and in need of tools to get rid of stress, sleep better and have more energy. These are two very demanding environments to live in and it’s so easy to get out of whack when you live in these places.

Who’s The Expert? And Why? “I was fortunate enough to be introduced to Jillian by a friend who knew that I was looking for better ways to manage stress and anxiety. I did a one week one-to-one course with Jillian and have never looked back! She is an excellent, empathetic and discerning teacher, who helpedContinue reading

Wild Rice Purple Salad

This recipe celebrates naturally gluten-free grains. This is a stunning winter grain salad using everything purple and pink with nutty wild rice. If the bitter radicchio or chicory are hard to find, red cabbage works very well here too. Give the rice a thorough rinse before soaking. Eating a rainbow of colours from your food isContinue reading

Amaranth Granola

This recipe celebrates naturally gluten-free grains. Amaranth, used by the ancient Aztecs, is a complete protein source boasting all 9 essential amino acids. Sometimes I make a simple porridge with soaked amaranth, cinnamon, a few blueberries and a drizzle of honey, but I love this nutty granola with apples and a little nut-milk or Coyo. You’llContinue reading

Brown Rice Donburi

This is my own healthy version of Donburi, a traditional Japanese “rice bowl dish”, enjoyed by many in Japan as a staple dish. It consists of a delicious steaming bowl of rice served with one or two portions of protein: egg, fish, meat or vegetables. Donburi has many interpretations, so use your own choice of proteinContinue reading

Martini

I love Christmas. It’s like a shining beacon in the long depths of winter; a punctuation mark of happiness to look forwards to and enjoy. Roaring fires, bracing walks, twinkling lights, pine-scented air, what’s not to love about a day dedicated to gratitude, family and delicious food? I am a fully-fledged member of the Christmas fanContinue reading

Autumnal Health

I don’t know about you, but as much as I adore the run-up to Christmas and all its festive cheer, I find the endless gift buying a rather stressful task.  Whilst it’s lovely to receive a thoughtful and well considered gift, we so rarely need the things we are gifted at Christmas. My boyfriend has set a great example, choosing to bequeath time toContinue reading

smorgasbord_christmas

Taken from Healthy Christmas Leftovers This festive Smörgåsbord Platter has to be the most exquisite way to serve a crowd a feast of colour, flavour and goodness, plus it’s the perfect way to use up leftovers and short-lived fresh produce over the Christmas holiday. No matter how well I’ve planned or how good my intentions, there will always be surplus foodContinue reading

Turkey Green Curry Soup

Taken from Healthy Christmas Leftovers There is something strangely precious about my turkey stock: I think because its flavour is so intense and delicious, I try to save it for ‘best’ (I usually make a big batch of stock in my slow cooker on Boxing Day and then freeze in portions to use at aContinue reading

Clean Eating

Just like fashion, trends in dieting come and go. I’ve been an interested observer of these for well over a decade now, watching each new idea peak in popularity before fading away in readiness for the Next Big Thing. So the enormous rise and subsequent criticism against clean eating comes as no surprise to me.Continue reading

Turkey Pate

Recipe taken from Healthy Christmas Leftovers I love to make little pots of pâté to dip crunchy crudités into, or to spoon generously onto little gem lettuce boats. Here, Ieftover Christmas turkey lends itself to one of my favourite types of pâté; packed full of healthy fats and protein, this makes a super light lunch after the richnessContinue reading

Vegetable Fritters

Recipe taken from Healthy Christmas Leftovers I’m a huge fan of fritters: they are packed full of goodness and taste; make the ideal quick, lazy breakfast/brunch; and are the perfect choice for reincarnating leftover veg. I love to top them with poached eggs or a pile of smoked salmon teamed with a handful of baby leaf spinach or rocket. I’ve used sprouts, peas,Continue reading

Gluten Free Carrot & Caraway Bread

Recipe taken from Healthy Christmas Leftovers This is a sumptuous and festive loaf, perfect for Christmas platters and sharing with family and friends. It keeps really well if you want to make it ahead of time. Makes 1 Tin Loaf 100g gluten free brown bread flour 7g fast action yeast 200ml warm water 400g glutenContinue reading

Turkey Quiche

Recipe taken from Healthy Christmas Leftovers This alternative oat and potato crust which I’ve used for this festive quiche maybe unusual, but its flavour and texture lend a brilliant twist. I have used leftover carrots and parsnips here, but swap in other veg such as Brussel sprouts, leeks, or squash – whatever you have to hand to boost goodnessContinue reading

Shakshuka

Recipe taken from Healthy Christmas Leftovers The smoky heat of a shakshuka works wonderfully with leftover vegetables thrown into the sauce. Here (given the festive time of year), I used leftover chestnuts, crunchy red cabbage, peas and leeks, but do experiment and use what you have to hand. If you are cooking for a crowd, youContinue reading

Festive Mince Pies

Prep 30 mins, plus 30 mins to chill // Cook 20 mins I’m not a fan of baking or making desserts, cakes, treats or sweets (even if they have a healthier form of sugar in them) as they are still going to disrupt our blood sugar levels. The abundance of sweet foods on offer over Christmas can so easily dent our willpower andContinue reading

Festive Red Cabbage

Here is a long-time festive favourite of mine – honestly, I could eat it any day of the year – it’s super simple to cook and authentically festive and delicious. This would make a brilliant rainbow addition to your Christmas lunch or any other meal this December. And best of all, it can be preparedContinue reading

festsive_salmnon_beetroot

This is what I’ll be eating on Christmas morning – I love to start Christmas day with smoked salmon (its something of a tradition for me), so I’ll be making this for all my family this year. This can also be a great appetiser during the festive season. Smoked Salmon is a source of proteinContinue reading

Quinoa Nut Roast

I had never made a nut roast before but, ‘oh my’, I am delighted with this one. I don’t often eat quinoa but I know so many of you love it and it works perfectly here, together with the pistachios, hazelnuts, cranberries and butternut squash. It does take a little prep, but it’s worth it. Plus, it oozesContinue reading
