Buckwheat and Blueberry Pancakes

This feels like a treat, but it’s really not. In fact, if you make a big batch you can have these a couple of days on the trot – the pancake mix will keep in the fridge. By adding Blueberries to the pancake you get a nice antioxidant rich breakfast packed full of vitamin C… a lovely morning boost. You can also munch on one of these pancakes during an afternoon snack. All in all quite a versatile little recipe and let’s face it, who doesn’t like pancakes?! This recipe is a slightly adapted version from James Duigan Clean and Lean Diet Cookbook

Vegetable Risotto with Cashew Nuts

This recipe was created for me by Anita Bean for my residential retreat and is a tasty, tasty treat! I love Risotto of an evening. Something very satisfying about it. Then add the cashew nuts and I’m in heaven. Anita is such a well respected nutritionist who works with many sporting teams, so it’s great she’s been able to add some recipes for me.

Moroccan Style Vegetable Stew with Harissa

An all time favourite because you guessed it… it uses the slow cooker!!! Hooray… an easy recipe you throw in at lunch time (or morning), switch on and enjoy later with little effort. Like a house husband all to yourself only better! This is a tasty dish that can warm you on a cold day. Think Tagine without the cooking! This recipe has been taken from Australian Womens Weekly More Slow Cooking Recipes

Pesto Crusted Salmon

This is such a simple recipe and so easy to do if you’re short on time. The herby flavours of the pesto compliment the salmon brilliantly.  Serve with Brown basmati rice if eaten after a workout or you can serve with quinoa and mixed vegetables.
