I only recently came to realise that salads can be hearty, filling and satisfying. Before starting my clean eating journey, I always viewed salads as something you have on the side of your main meal. When going out to restaurants, I wouldn’t even consider looking at the salad section of the menu. “How can a few leaves and some tomatoes fill you up? Salads are boring” I was so wrong!

I feel that Brussels sprouts are neglected all year round apart from Christmas. I can only find them locally around this time and it makes me sad, because I LOVE BRUSSELS SPROUTS! I realise not everyone shares my passion for the humble sprout and I guess I can understand why. I always used to boil or steam my Brussels sprouts which I must admit did get boring after a while. That’s before I discovered roasting them instead!

Traditional Shepard’s pie can often be on the fatty, starchy side what with all the meat, thick layer of potato mash mixed with generous amounts of butter and cheese. This healthy vegetarian Shepherd’s pie is much lighter and full of vegetables and pulses packed with nutrients and mineral, and the best thing about it is that it tastes just as delicious and satisfying as the traditional!

If you think salads are boring, then you more than anyone need to try this recipe! There was a time when I thought salads were boring, but that was mainly because I never experimented. My salads always consisted of tomatoes, cucumber and lettuce…that’s it! And even though there is nothing wrong with that combination but as you can imagine, it did eventually become so boring!

On most evening, I like making quick and simple recipes, like these healthy tuna patties. All you need to do is chop a few ingredients, mix everything in one bowl, shape into patties and shallow fry for a few minutes and you’ll have a tasty and satisfying meal. You can eat these tuna patties on their own with a side salad and sweet potato fried, or you can turn it into a burger with layers of tomato, lettuce, a slice of cheese and a drizzle of Sriracha…perfect!
