I’ve been storing my top five favourites things to share with you today!

Black or dark coloured grapes! The perfect little gems to snack on when you fancy something sweet. Not only are they tasty and delicious but they are packed with goodness helping with brain function and memory, protection against cancer, preventing heart disease and lowering the risk of developing blood clots. ( Pass me the red wine to please!! 😀 )

Grilled vegetable bruschetta with a fresh herb dressing (Carol Vorderman’s Summer Detox with Anita Bean) – I just adore this dish!!! We had this for the first time this year using all the ingredients that came in our veg and salad box. I love it when that happens, I open my fridge see what I have and then make something special with it.

Spelt pasta. I discovered spelt pasta some years ago after I started baking my own bread with spelt flour. This is a great alternative to refined white pasta. Spelt is an ancient grain that is nutty in flavour. It is higher in protein and fibre and easier to digest than your standard pasta.

Quinoa porridge! This is my new favourite thing at the moment. I’ve used the grain quinoa for years now and it is packed full of goodness and is a true superfood, but I have only just discovered that you can also get quinoa porridge. It is gluten free, a complete protein, it reduces the chances of developing type 2 diabetes and heart disease. If consumed on a regular basis it is said to help strengthen and build stamina and encourage speed muscle recovery. I use the quinoa porridge recipe from the whole pantry app.

Nothing beats a jacket potato!!! This is the moment that my house goes silent, my two boys absolutely love them especially with tuna and cheese. Tin tuna is always handy to have in your kitchen cupboard when your out of ideas and have no time. But what tin tuna are you buying? Shop around and try some other brands and I would always recommend that you buy one that is in organic olive oil rather than brine. The one I use has converted some tin tuna haters!
Cottage cheese is always better to use in replacement of cheddar. It is packed full of protein and can help you feel fuller for longer.
