This is one of my favourite Brussel sprouts recipes! Brussels sprouts are an excellent source of vitamin C and vitamin K. They are a very good source of numerous nutrients including folate, manganese, vitamin B6, dietary fiber, choline, copper, vitamin B1, potassium, phosphorus, and omega-3 fatty acids. This salad is very easy to make at home, and in my opinion the success hangs on the brussel sprouts being cooked just right. Be careful not to over-boil them at the start. They should still be green and only just cooked through.
1kg brussel sprouts
2 avocados cut into cubes
A handful of raw pecan nuts
1 cup Balsamic Vinegar

This is one of my favourite dishes ever! Its very easy to make at home, and in my opinion the whole recipe hangs on the type of green curry paste you use. Be sure to go for a very good brand and add it in gradually, as some brands are more spicy and you will need less.
1 tbsp vegetable oil
2 tbsp Thai green curry paste (according to taste)
1 tbsp soft dark brown sugar
1-2 thick stalks lemongrass, fat ends bashed with a rolling pin (optional)
750g chicken breast cut into strips
6-8 kaffir lime leaves, torn into pieces (if unavailable, use the grated zest of 1 lime)
400ml/14fl oz coconut milk
1 tablespoon Thai fish sauce or light soy sauce
A few basil leaves chopped fine
Small handful of chopped coriander to serve (optional)
1 Zucchini sliced
½-1 lime, juice only
Makes: 6 servings
Brussels sprouts are rich in many valuable nutrients. They are an excellent source of vitamin C and vitamin K. They are a very good source of numerous nutrients including folate, manganese, vitamin B6, dietary fiber, choline, copper, vitamin B1, potassium, phosphorus, and omega-3 fatty acids. Many people don't enjoy the 'sulfur-like' taste, which comes from when you cook them only. You will not have that with fresh Brussel sprouts, especially when dressed as a salad. Enjoy!
For the Salad
1 pound Brussels sprouts
1 medium tart apple (like Granny Smith)
1 medium red onion
1 cup chopped walnuts
For the Vinaigrette
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
2 teaspoons maple syrup
3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
½ cup extra virgin olive oil
Salt and pepper, to taste
Makes: 4-6 servings
This is a great alternative to regular rice for anyone trying to cut down on carbs, or trying to increase vegetable intake. Save yourself a few hundred calories on your meal tonight and to be honest, you'd be hard pushed to know the difference!
one head cauliflower
Tools: food processor or Grater
1- Cut the cauliflower into florets, wash well and dry.
2- Place the Cauliflower in a food processor and whizz until you get a rice-like texture. Do this in batches to get the best results.
3- Grate the cauliflower, you will achieve the same results.
Once the 'rice' has been made, pour hot water and a little salt on top. Allow to sit for a few minutes and drain. I would recommend doing this just before serving so that your rice is warm.

This is the perfect balanced breakfast and one that will keep you full for hours! Avocado and egg pair so well, and the combination of healthy fats and protein will balance your blood sugar perfectly, keeping you full for longer. This is one of my favourite breakfasts and one of the best breakfasts you can have.
1 Avocado sliced in half, stone out.
2 organic eggs
Himalayan pink salt and cracked black pepper to taste
Chopped fresh chives (optional)
1. Pre-heat the oven to 220C or 425F.
2-Place the two avocado halves on a baking tray, and allow them to touch so they are well supported and don't rock on your baking tray. Spoon in the egg yolk slowly, followed by the egg white.
2- Season with salt and pepper.
3- Bake in pre-heated oven for 12mns for a soft egg and 15/17mns for eggs that are more well done.
4-Top with fresh chopped chives if desired and enjoy!

I am an absolute soup junkie and always have one cooking on the stove. It’s a great way to get a big amount of nutrients into your body in just one bowl, and a great way to sooze your digestive system. Mushrooms rank up high on any anti-cancer food list, especially the mighty shitake and reishi. This soup can be made using a variety of mushrooms and provides a wide array of antioxidants, B vitamins, selenium and other essential nutrients.
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 small to medium onion, roughly chopped
1 rib of celery, roughly diced
16 ounces mushrooms, cleaned and quartered (you can use button and crimini mushrooms)
5 cups vegetable broth
1/2 flat teaspoon of dried thyme
3 tablespoons of roasted almond butter
1 cup unsweetened almond milk
2 tablespoons toasted sliced almonds
2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
Sea salt and pepper, to taste
1. In a large soup pot, heat extra-virgin olive oil over medium heat. Cook onion and celery about 5 minutes or until softened.
2. Add mushrooms and cook for another two minutes, stirring throughout.
3. Add vegetable broth and thyme, then sea salt and pepper, to taste. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low and simmer uncovered for about 10mns until vegetables are tender.
4. Add almond butter. Transfer to a blender and puree the whole lot.
5. Put back in the pot over low heat, stir in almond milk, add sea salt and pepper to taste.
6. Serve soup in bowls and garnish with fresh parsley and toasted almond slices.
Tip: This soup is equally nice without the almond butter and toasted almonds. You can also garnish with slices of sautéed mushrooms.

Asparagus is a very good source of fiber, folate, vitamins A, C, E and K, as well as chromium, a trace mineral that enhances the ability of insulin to transport glucose from the bloodstream into cells. Spinach is one of my favourite leafy vegetables and I always have some handy in my fridge. It is Nutritional Powerhouse and packs in lots of iron, Vitamin K, A, C and Calcium and is packed with powerful antioxidants.
350g asparagus spears, stalks chopped, woody ends removed.
3 shallots, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 large handfuls of spinach
700ml vegetable stock (fresh if possible)
1 tablespoon Coconut oil
Olive oil for drizzling (optional)
Himalayan pink salt and cracked black pepper
Tip: You can save some asparagus tips and put them into the soup before serving.

Trying something new this morning with my green mood-boosting smoothie. This smoothie is rich in healthy fats that are essential for the growth and development of nervous tissue, while nutmeg promotes the production of serotonin so I get more of the "feel-good" factor in my body for longer. Spirulina adds protein and lots of antioxidants, making this smoothie a winner on all counts!
250ml light coconut milk (3 teaspoons coconut milk powder mixed with 250ml water) or 250ml almond milk
1/4 teaspoon of spirulina
Cinnamon to taste
Nutmeg to taste
Half to 1 teaspoon of coconut oil.
Put all ingredients together in a blender and blend until creamy and smooth.
