Chicken broth with sweet potato and parsnip dumplings

Chicken broth with sweet potato and parsnip dumplings

  I’m not vegetarian, but I don’t eat much meat. When I do, it’s usually an organic chicken that I roast on a Sunday. I try to eek it out as much as possible which means that I’ll get more than one meal out of it. Soup is one of my favourite things to make...
A healthier take on gingerbread men

A healthier take on gingerbread men

My eldest came back from nursery with a biscuit and I knew there would be trouble. His 18 month old sister doesn’t take kindly to not having the exact same thing that he has, no matter what it is. To avoid toddler Armageddon, I stalled him from tucking into it while I looked around for...

Chill out

Chill out

Quite a few of the conditions that I see regularly in clinic are stress related. Most diseases, if not caused by stress, are exacerbated by it.  This is why I make a point of trying to ensure that people who come and see me for nutrition have strategies in place for managing day-to-day stress in...

Fluffy, gluten-free, American pancakes

Fluffy, gluten-free, American pancakes

I haven’t made pancakes for a while now. I don’t know what was so special about this morning. Perhaps it was the fact that this week had been gruelling; I probably needed to draw a line under it by acknowledging the difference between gobbled bowls of porridge or granola and a leisurely weekend feast. Whatever...
Chickpea crepes

Chickpea crepes

These were surprisingly good. I’ll be honest, I thought they would be rather odd because they contain so few ingredients and no eggs! Shame on me for lacking faith, particularly as they are from this wonderful book, The Voluptuous Vegan by Myra Kornfield. I made these as an experiment for the children. I thought the...
Cheesy cornbread

Cheesy cornbread

This recipe was the love-child of Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall and Claire Patak. Both cooks write for the Guardian, but they each took very different approaches to the humble cornbread. Hugh, as you would expect, adopted a no-nonsense approach with very few embellishments. Claire, took an apologetically Southern approach to it – adding egg for a...

Super quick banana cake

Super quick banana cake

When my bananas are so ripe they can get out and walk from the fruit bowl I figure I need to take action. That action is usually to bake something but if I don’t have time I stick them in the freezer in their skins. At any given time I usually have 3 or 4...
Hayfever hell

Hayfever hell

So many people are struggling with hayfever right now including me. I’m not quite at the stage where I’m locking myself in darkened rooms with the windows closed but it’s still a war I’m fighting on a daily basis. Hayfever, is an over zealous histamine response to pollen, moulds, grass and a whole host of...
