Vibrant Mediteranean Salad

Posted on Sep 17, 2017 in Food, Lunch/Dinner

Ingredients : 2 tbsp of refined coconut oil 2 garlic cloves, crushed 1 medium zucchini, chop into 1/2 cm slices on the diagonal 1/2 red capsicum sliced 1/2 large yellow capsicum sliced 200g cherry tomatoes 1 celery stalk, sliced thinly 2 tbsp of thinly sliced fennel 1 teaspoon of capers, rinsed 1 large handful of parsley, chopped 1...

Turmeric Cauliflower Rice

I love this bright cauliflower rice. It gets its vibrancy from turmeric, which is a great super-nutrient.  It has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties which is really useful whether trying to improve your fertility or enhance your overall health.  Cauliflower is also rich in antioxidants and folate.  It also contains compounds that may help balance hormones. And on top of that it is so easy to make and to use leftovers to make a great base for a meal the next day.  Add some grilled chicken and a side salad and you’ve got yourself a tasty meal. Ingredients 1/2 medium cauliflower...

Rhubarb and Apple Crumble

One of my all-time favourites is rhubarb and apple crumble.  It’s the perfect comfort food whilst being (relatively) healthy! This recipe is gluten-free making it a good choice if you’ve decided to give your body a break from gluten. The fibre in rhubarb is great for helping with constipation and keeping you regular; it’s really important to have good digestive health when you’re trying for a baby as you need to ensure that your body is absorbing all the nutrients it needs to support not only yourself through the demands of pregnancy but also your baby.  It’s...
