Salmon with Mango and Pomegranate Salsa

I once ordered a salmon dish when having a catch up with a friend and it was served with a mango salsa. I thought it was so delicious and the flavoures complemented each other so well. I thought the mango was quite a nice alternative to add to salsa. I decided I would soon recreate the dish, this was two years ago! I recently remembered it and suddenly had a strong urge to make it!

I know I’m not alone when I say this – I’m obsessed with avocados! Another thing that I love is bruschetta – the crispy bread it’s served on, the flavours and the simplicity of the idea! I’ve made simple tomato and basil bruschetta many times, then one day it occurred to me, why not add avocado? It made perfect sense.

Smoothies are one of the easiest ways to get some fruit and veg into your daily diet. It’s also one of the easiest ways to create a balanced meal with sufficient amounts of carbohydrates, proteins and fats!

These fries will change your life! Well not really, but if you’re trying to be healthier but still want to enjoy chips or ‘fries’ from time to time (or everyday!) then this might just make your life a little bit brighter.

As some of you already know, I like keeping my recipes simple. To make this gluten free vegetarian spaghetti I’m making a simple tomato sauce using canned tomatoes and tomato puree and flavouring it with garlic, basil, chilli flakes and lemon jucie. I’m adding peas for some extra colour and texture but feel free to use minced meat or prawns for some protein.

Banana ice-cream is probably one of my favourite healthy/clean eating discoveries. The first time I made banana ice-cream (AKA nicecream or nana ice-cream) I was blown away by the simplicity, and the results were close to perfect! How can a humble frozen banana equal a creamy, sweet and decadent ice-cream? Nothing added – no sugar, no cream, not salt…NOTHING!

This recipe is as easy as they get! You literally only need 3 main ingredients and then you can add whatever else you like. Chia seeds have very quickly become one of my pantry staples that I can’t live without! I’ve been using them particularly in baking as a substitute for eggs, especially when I’m looking for something denser and less spongy. I think chia eggs work so much better than flax eggs, does anyone else think that?

Last week was actually warm enough for a frozen treat, looks like summer is finally here (even though it’s raining now as I’m writing this!!) I’ve really been craving some banana ice cream (nice cream, nana ice cream…or whatever you want to call it!) lately, which is basically frozen bananas blended into a thick ice cream like consistency. If you haven’t tried it, it’s definitely something you NEED to add to your ‘recipes to make’ list.

The secret ingredient in these blondies and what makes them healthy is – you’ve probably already guessed it – CHICKPEAS! Most of the healthy blondie recipes out there include some sort of nut butter. I wanted to create a nut free recipe for those of you allergic to nuts, and this is the result! Healthy, nut free, vegan, gluten free, dairy free and refined sugar free.
