Tabouli is a Mediterranean favourite and in my opinion should be classified as a superfood! All the ingredients are packed with vitamins and minerals. One of the key ingredients, parsley, has double as much iron as spinach and contains more vitamin C than most vegetables. It also boosts immunity and cleanses the liver, kidney and gall bladder. Quinoa, the other key ingredient is packed with fibre and protein and is also high in calcium and iron.
Besides this it tastes delicious and can be eaten with a variety of proteins or on its own with some avocado, hummus and pita bread!
SWEET POTATO BROWNIES
If you are looking for some warm comfort food that is healthy and packed with nutrients, from antioxidants and vitamin A in the sweet potato, to monounsaturated fats in the olive oil, to protein and amino acids in the mince and vitamin C in the zucchini and eggplant. Try this hearty recreated moussaka dish. You won’t be able to stop at one piece!

DECONSTRUCTED VEGETABLE AND SALMON OMELETTE
This is a culinary favourite. Straight from France, the home of deliciously, humble food. Fish stew is a warming and nutritious food. Fish and seafood is loaded with omega-3 fatty acids, which help reduce inflammation and protein for healthy muscles and bones.
This is one all your guests will enjoy, as well as your gut!

SPANAKOPITA (Spinach and cheese pie)
For most of us life is busy… whether it’s work, kids, friends, family, and generally trying to live we have less and less time to prepare nourishing meals that are suitable for everyone. This is where slow cooked meals come in. They usually only require a one step cooking method and are ready for you when you get home from a long day. Slow cooked meals are an easy way to eat a delicious and healthy meal. This one is packed with superfoods from lentils, to buckwheat and brussel sprouts!
LUNCHBOX FRIENDLY BANANA BREAD
This spanakopita recipe is a simple healthy crowd pleaser. It is filled with loads of nourishing vitamins, antioxidants and minerals. It is a sure way for you to get your kids to eat some greens and their daily dairy intake!
It can be chopped and stored in the freezer, to be reheated at a later time or be a perfect part of a lunchbox.
We all love banana bread, we all love to go to a cafe before work, get a coffee and match it up with a piece of banana bread topped with melted butter, but the trouble is that it is full of ingredients that seem to be healthy but unfortunately aren’t if we are having them nearly everyday. This recipe is your alternative, it tastes delicious and it actually works to fuel and nourish your body with its nutrient content.
QUINOA CRUSTED FLATHEAD
Greek seafood staple, octopus is sure to appear on the menu at any family event. I love the charred flavours of the octopus after it has been soaking in this delightful marinade. Finish this dish off with a drizzling of peppery olive oil, tangy white wine vinegar and lemon for the ultimate Greek dish!
TRADITIONAL ROAST LAMB

Both flathead and quinoa are super foods, packed with protein, vitamin Bs, magnesium and other essential vitamins and minerals.
JOHN DORY WITH CAPSICUM SALSA AND PAN GRILLED GREEN BEANS
A traditional lamb roast will always be a crowd favourite. This mouth watering lamb leg roast, infused with garlic, rosemary and olive oil is satisfyingly delicious, and an excellent source of iron and vitamin B’s for improved energy, strength and immunity.
BBQ KING PRAWNS
I absolutely love a good piece of fresh white fish, especially a nice John Dory. While it might be a less oily fish, it is still packed with omega 3, magnesium, iodine, selenium, and DHA and EPA. John Dory is also light in taste (if you don’t like an overly ‘fishy’ tasting fish!) and super easy to cook.
This recipe Mediterranean dish is one of my favourites because it is zesty, healthy and quick to cook any day of the week.
BANANA AND RASPBERRY MUFFINS
Looking for a quick and easy, yet delicious dish to change up your weeknight dinners? Something that feels like you are eating at a restaurant but you get to enjoy in the comfort of your own home?

You can pack them in your lunchbox and enjoy them anytime of the day, and they are the perfect compliment to your tea or coffee.
GREEK CHICKEN BURGERS
Lentils are a staple legume in the Mediterranean diet. Lentils are low GI and contain significant amounts of dietary fibre, which means they help control blood sugar levels. They are also a great source of protein and vitamin B9, folate. These little round buttons are a superfood on their own, and when combined with all the other vegetables to make this stew all your necessary nutrients can be found in one bowl!
This can be eaten on its own or served with a piece of grilled white fish and a slice of crusty sourdough or gluten free bread.
Burgers are always a crowd favourite, especially when you can put them together yourself and make them to your liking. These burgers are made with a twist and are easy on the waistline. The hidden vegetables in the chicken mince not only add to flavour to the patties, but also are a sure way of adding extra nutrients to your meal. The yogurt dressing and halloumi help create the delicious balance of salt and tang. You’ll be scraping the plate for leftovers!
