Lemon & Poppy Seed Muffins

I love a good lemon cake, something about the tanginess combined with sweetness, and Lemon & Poppy Seed is one of my favourite combinations.  The poppy seeds add a kind of savoury nuttiness which just works so well with the lemon.  These Lemon & Poppy Seed Muffins are made without any refined ingredients so they…

Lemon Cauliflower Rice with Coriander (Cilantro)

Looking for a light and refreshing side dish to pair with my Asian Style, Sweet Chilli Salmon, I was immediately drawn to something citrussy and decided to create a Lemon Cauliflower Rice to cut through the sweetness of the salmon.  I love the flavour of Lemon & Coriander (Cilantro) so I decided to add that…

Chicken in a Lemon, Rosemary & White Wine Sauce

After a heavy red-meat type of weekend with Slow Roast Beef Brisket and my Paleo Lasagne we’d decided on chicken tonight as a lighter option for dinner and I wanted something fairly healthy without too much fat.  I find that if you use herbs right then they add all the flavour you need to food and you…

Salmon Nicoise Salad

Last night I wanted something light and fresh but still filling and full of good fats and protein to fuel me after my BODYPUMP class.  I settled on a Salmon Salad Nicoise – or my version of one – topped with a gooey poached egg and some avocado and dill salsa.  Fats from the oily…

Roasted Cauliflower with Pine Nuts & Tahini Dressing

I was having a few friends over for dinner tonight and my friend Josephine was bringing over a traditional Swedish dinner of herring and caviar to start followed by Salmon and Potato Salad as a main course. Knowing that I wouldn’t be able to eat the potato salad I decided to create myself a side…

Kale, Roasted Broccoli & Almond Salad with Lemon Dressing

Tonight I decided to give the new-to-me method of massaging kale a go.  Loving other people’s food blogs and keeping up with the foodie world, it’s something I’ve seen talked about a lot recently but never had a go at myself.  My go-to method of using kale is to roast it in the oven on…
