I love using red cabbage to make an Asian style slaw and add all sorts of ingredients depending upon what is in season. My favourites are the long Mooli Radish (also known as Diakon)  I get at the Indian store on the outskirts of Leicester, fresh carrots and Kohlrabi which seems to keep turning up in our Riverford organic box and now comes in both a purple and a white variety.

The sweet and salty combination of honey and Gluten free Soy sauce is a classic in many Asian dishes. Here I’ve teamed it with courgetti and rice noodles. It’s an all time favourite in our home which means if there’s salmon in the fridge we get excited! Always try to buy wild salmon that’s been ethically sourced if possible and if you can only get farmed salmon check that it is naturally farmed and where possible in conditions close to what nature intended i.e. ocean farmed.

What to do when you have a supply of amazing nut butters? Well for me there’s nothing for it but to get into the kitchen and get baking. Here’s the first of what will be a few recipes using the deliciousness that is Pip and Nut’s nut butters. 

These are delicious little snacks. Packed with healthy ingredients and nutrient dense they are both filling and delicious. You want to bake them until they’re crunchy on the outside but still soft on the inside. Don’t leave the kitchen in the last few minutes or they will be too crisp.

Ingredients

I got into Matcha last year after discovering Matcha Latte (made with almond or coconut milk). It made a refreshing change from peppermint tea when I wanted a warm drink that felt more indulgent than a herbal tea. Having given up caffeine 4 years ago I don’t miss the taste or the ritual of it (or the headaches I used to suffer) but I do sometimes miss the warmth of a creamy drink.

I love a home made granola where I know what’s gone into it and how much healthier it is than the shop brought stuff. This is the king of Granolas. It’s gluten free and made with coconut so is great for those who are oat intolerant too. Coconut is a fantastic source of good fat and helps you metabolise bad fat. Cocao, the purest form of chocolate without any added sugars is packed with anti-oxidants and carob, a relatively new ingredient for me, has many health benefits including being low in fat and high in fibre.
