This winning Vegetable Kugel made with eggs and broccoli is a tasty and nutritious recipe for the whole family. 🥦 🥚 🥦 It’s quick to rustle up so perfect for a mid-week meal too. I made it today after hearing that it’s Hanukka, the Jewish Festival of lights and thought I’d experiment with one of the traditional dishes. It’ll be a regular on the menu in our house from now on for 5 good reasons: 1️⃣The five eggs it contains are like nature’s own little multivitamins – packed
The top favourite dinner in our house right now is this rough and ready Spanish meatball dish served with turmeric rice.
It’s not just made with any old tomato sauce – the recipe has been tweaked to be extra nutritious with home-made chicken stock, lots of garlic, peppers and herbs thrown in and blended together so even the fussiest of eaters won’t complain.
Top with chopped parsley to bump up your vitamin C levels and grated manchego for the final tasty touch.
This colourful salad makes use of quinoa, one of my top store cupboard ingredients. Quinoa is a pseudo grain which means it’s actually a seed. If your children like cous cous like mine do, then they’ll probably love quinoa. On its own it has a bland slightly nutty taste, but you can easily pimp it up with some colourful additions. Quinoa is a good source of protein containing twice the amount rice does, which means it will keep you fuller for longer and help with blood sugar
Preparing nourishing food can be as simple as boiling an egg. Complicated recipes aren’t a prerequisite nor are expensive ingredients. In fact the humble egg is nature’s version of a multivitamin and mineral. Don’t be put off by scare stories about high cholesterol, instead consider what you are serving eggs with. For example a traditional fry up is high in saturated fat. See eggs as an easy nutritious win packed with an amazing array of nutrients including: ⭐️ All the esse
I don’t know about you, but on a rainy day like today, I’m in the mood for comfort food and polenta seemed like the perfect choice to base dinner around this evening.
Polenta is a delicious and cheap ingredient that only takes 10 minutes to prepare. It’s made of cornmeal and as a complex carbohydrate will help to keep blood sugars stable. It a source of fibre and protein and also boosts the diversity of plant foods I’ve eaten today to help my good gut bacteria.

Curry night I love a good curry and I introduced my children to spices from an early age, so that they could eat my favourite foods with me. Today, I’m experimenting with my new Instant Pot. We’re having beef and chickpea curry, with loads of vegetables thrown in for a one pot meal. The aim is to achieve the intensity of flavour you gain from slow cooking, but in a speedy 35 minutes. This recipe ticks all the boxes for me:
⭐️ quick to prepare
⭐️ highly nutritious
