This is my go-to smoothie when we’re rushed and my kids need quick nourishment and energy. Perfect for an after school-snack, pre-sports snack, or breakfast on the go. It seems to please all ages and it’s super simple to make. Sounds good, right?

It wouldn’t be Christmas without eggnog, but traditionally it is loaded with milk, double cream, eggs, sugar and alcohol – a lethal combination for the waistline and the morning after. Here’s my trimmed down vegan version that is packed with plant-based goodness and is still equally delicious and warming.

This is one of my favourite go-to smoothies. It’s so easy to throw it all in the blender and whizz together. Don’t feel you have to buy everything on the ingredients list – mix and match, use what you have in your fridge and just keep this recipe as a base for whatever combination you create. Have fun!

Lentils are a great base when making a nourishing meal and you can make extra to keep you going throughout the week too. This salad is really quick to put together and can be prepped ahead of time. It’s full of flavour and crunch, while the dressing gives it a lovely tangy burst that cuts through deliciously.

Crunch, crunch, crunch – this salad defines fresh! It’s hearty enough as a main meal, especially if you want to add some baked tempeh, marinated tofu or grilled chicken breast on top.
