Zucchini Linguini With Spinach + Basil Pesto

I love making my zucchini linguini !  It’s a great alternative to traditional pasta and it has the added benefit of being nutrient dense and kind to the digestive system. What I love about this dish is that you can enjoy zucchini linguini  raw or lightly heated through. The pesto slightly softens the zucchini as the aromatics penetrate right through and you end up with a glorious plate of deliciousness that is irresistible.  I love to serve mine simply with a grating... Read More

Polish Sauerkraut

I was brought up on sauerkraut.  My Great Polish Aunt was a specialist sauerkraut maker and I remember us as kids always having it with our meals. The sour flavour comes from the process of lacto-fermentation, similar to the pickling of cucumbers. But instead of soaking the cabbage in a vinegary brine solution, sauerkraut preparation requires only salt and the lactic acid bacteria already present on raw cabbage. Sauerkraut produces amazing amounts of lactobacilli, a healthy... Read More

Classic Tomato Soup

This is a beautiful classic tomato soup that has been a part of my cooking repertoire for many years. When I make soups in my home, I go for simplicity and freshness, so that I can immerse my senses in the unadulterated flavour of the ingredients. I don’t use a vegetable stock, I use plain filtered water as I find that using stock can sometimes interfere and complicate that naturalness of this soup. Adding 1 red apple adds a wonderful hint of sweetness and a generous grind... Read More

Smashed Organic Eggs with Mustardy French Dressing

One of my favourite all time foods are organic free-range eggs.  We always have a dozen in the fridge at all times as they make a perfect meal for breakfast, lunch or quick healthy dinner. I remember my Great Aunty cooking up lots of egg dishes when I was growing up.  We used to raise our own hens and grow our own veggies, so a lot of our meals were based on egg and vegetable dishes.  I love to eat eggs pretty much any way, but one of my favourites is to smash them with aromatics... Read More

Cashew Cream with Tahitian Vanilla

I  make my lush cashew cream on a weekly basis and love to spoon it over seasonal fruits, add to smoothies or fold through my bircher muesli made from apple, blueberry and a hint of cinnamon. For me it’s comfort food loaded with health benefits. A touch of vanilla takes the cream to the next level of yumminess. What’s great about it: Cashews are high in the amino acid tryptophan which helps to make serotonin – the FEEL GOOD hormone responsible for feelings of wellbeing... Read More

Detox Energy Salad

I was first introduced to a detox diet when I visited an awesome health and wellness retreat called Kamalaya that is situated in Koh Samui, Thailand. I did  a 14 day program especially designed by Dr Karina Stewart to help cleanse the body and nourish the cells.  At the end of my treatment – I felt amazing ! I was energised, rejuvenated and ready to take on the world.  Basically the motto of a detox is: REMOVE – RESTORE – REJUVENATE A detox is a bit like an oil change... Read More

Keeping It Clean + Natural

“I’ve designed my range of Organic Pea Protein & Pure Native WPI to be the purest form of protein supplement available on the market.

Lush Cherry + Coconut Smoothie

Most mornings I start my day off with a smoothie after a workout. I was inspired to create my lush cherry + coconut smoothie purely because cherries are in season and are one of my favourite fruits to enjoy on its own as a healthy snack, or combined with coconut water for a purely delicious power packed smoothie. Make sure to buy the fresh cherries and freeze them yourself.  You can easily pit them using your fingers, much like you would a fresh date. The inclusion of a little... Read More

Kale + Spinach Detox Salad

I’m excited about welcoming in the new year and all the exciting projects I am developing for The Healthy Chef.  But before I weather the storm, it’s important to me that I take a minute to re-evaluate  and reset my health and my lifestyle that will help me get through the busy year ahead. January basically means that my home turns into a health spa, a detox retreat that helps me focus 100 % on my health. I get a full body check up –  fill my fridge with... Read More

Green Power Smoothie

  Today I would like to share with you my favourite breakfast of all time.  It’s my GREEN POWER SMOOTHIE that I enjoy most mornings before I start my day along with a serve of protein like a few eggs or some sardines or wild salmon and avocado. What I love about this smoothie is that it’s not full of sugar and greenwash like other store bought varieties.  It’s the real deal, the get me healthy hard core type of smoothie that will have you bouncing off... Read More

Dukkah – Egyptian Spice Mix

Dukkah is an Egyptian spice blend made from roasted nuts, seeds and spice. I love making my own Healthy Chef combinations so that I can sprinkle onto garden salads, skinny dips and just simply have on hand to accentuate favourite meals. It works beautifully with Moroccan baked organic eggs,  cinnamon roasted sweet potato or veggie burgers topped with beetroot relish and a crunchy salad. I’m not a fan of store bought versions as they are not as moorish like the ones you... Read More

Berry + Coconut Celebration Cake

Today I thought I’d post my lush berry coconut cake that I often make for special occasions such as Christmas and birthdays.  I love the simplicity of this cake and it’s perfect for those on low sugar, gluten free, digestive health diets or primal eating plans. It’s remodelled from the classic Victoria sponge cake that I used to make regularly as a pastry chef back in the day and the simple combination of berries and coconut is just purely delicious. I’ve... Read More

Superfood Muesli

This is such a simple and purely delicious dish that I just had to share it. My superfood muesli with lush summer berries is my favourite breakfast of the moment. It takes just one minute to prepare and what I love about it is that it makes the perfect portable food so you can easily prepare it into a glass jar and take it to work to enjoy at your leisure.  I love to vary my base recipe and use a good organic natural yoghurt, coconut kefir or even a silky cashew cream. To this... Read More

Fisherman’s Board – Sardine Bruschetta

If you want a budget friendly healthy meal that takes just 2 minutes to make – you can’t go past my fisherman’s board  Sardine Bruschetta. I always have a few tins of sardines in the pantry and the secret to preparing it lies in the aromatics you use.

Purely Delicious Cashew Milk

I absolutely love drinking cashew milk.  It’s purely delicious, velvety and creamy white that’s perfect on it’s own, served along side a batch of my chocolate chip cookies or blended into super yummy power smoothies.

Carrot + Ginger Soup

This purely delicious carrot soup recipe comes from my haven of solitude –  Kamalaya Wellness Sanctuary in Koh Samui. What I love about this soup is that it’s quick and easy to make and you can feel the healing benefits just after a few mouthfuls. The most important secret to making this soup is to cook it very quickly to maximise the flavour whilst still keeping the nutritional benefits – it should take about 10 minutes. For more healthy recipes, check out... Read More

Why Native Whey Protein Isolate is better than Protein Concentrate

When you walk into a supermarket or health food store, you are confronted by rows of products and powders promising weight loss or lean toned muscle. It can get a bit confusing picking the best one for your needs, as well as understanding how it’s prepared and the ingredients used to make it. There are some key factors to consider when deciding on the right protein supplement for you. Protein concentrate is derived from the by-products of cheese making. Pure Native Whey Protein... Read More

Minestrone with Vegetables of the Moment

When I make minestrone I vary the vegetables I use depending on what I can get in the market that day.  This wonderful vegetable soup reflects the season – the vegetables of the moment that are clean and pure and that can be thrown into a large pot and simmered to perfection. I love minestrone because it’s a one pot meal that’s simple and nourishing and it can be enjoyed for a few days or until the pot is empty. I’ve used water not vegetable stock to... Read More

Green Pea + Spinach Risotto

My green pea and spinach risotto was inspired by a good friend who just returned from Italy. It’s a simple and nourishing meal that is purely delicious comfort food and makes you feel great from the inside out. When I make risotto my aim is to focus on using more vegetables rather than a lot of rice and the secret is to keep it simple. This risotto is fabulous any time of year and you can use either frozen or fresh peas, when they are in season. I’ve used a lovely... Read More

Pesto

Today I thought I’d post my all time favourite pesto recipe that I absolutely love adding in many of my weekly recipes you see on my site.

Cauliflower + Leek Soup with Parsley Oil

One of my favourite quick soup recipes of the moment is my delicious cauliflower and leek soup. There is something magical when you combine cauliflower and leek and you instantly feel satisfied and nourished after eating it. The most important thing to remember when making this magnificent soup is not to cook it for too long. A brief 5 – 10 minutes is all you need otherwise the freshness is lost. The parsley oil is my little finishing touch to this soup. It marries and... Read More

Healthy Hot Chocolate (awesome recipe using my healthy chef chocolate WPI)

This time of year I start craving hot chocolate.  Something warm, sweet and nourishing that’s healthy and not going to start turning me into a marshmallow during winter.

For the original healthy hot chocolate recipe please click HERE as this recipe is only suitable for my healthy chef chocolate WPI or vanilla WPI... Read More

6 Steps To Eating Seasonally

I love the change of season. Its revitalizing seeing the weather patterns shift and trees change colour, little signs to let us know that a new cycle is ready to begin. What most excites me though, is the availability of a whole new batch of beautiful seasonal produce. Time to experiment with different foods and flavours or rehash old favourite recipes that were enjoyed this time last year. Synchronising your diet with the seasons is certainly not a new concept. It was a necessity... Read More

Roasted Pumpkin + Carrot Soup with Green Goddess Pesto

Over the next few months I’ll be posting some of my favourite winter warming recipes to nourish and heal over the cooler months. A soup that I regularly make is my roasted pumpkin and carrot soup. The roasting intensifies the delicious flavour, allowing a delicate sweetness that comes through the finished dish. I vary how I serve my soup depending on what I feel like at the time or what I have in the fridge.  One of my favourite toppings is a green goddess pesto made from... Read More

Bubble + Squeak

I remember mum cooking bubble + squeak for all of us when we were kids. It was basically all the leftover veggies from the night before cooked up in a hot cast iron pan until lovely and golden with lots of crispy bits that tasted amazing.  Well I love to follow a little family tradition and often make bubble + squeak at home when I want some warm and healthy comfort food.  It’s not leftovers by any means, I make it from scratch 15 minutes from beginning to end,  cooked... Read More

WHITE SAUCE – 10 Ways

I remember making bucket loads of béchamel (white sauce) when I was working as a chef for a variety of dishes such as lasagne, vegetable bakes, fish pie, moussaka, cheese sauces and soufflé.  Typically the sauce was made by making a white roux (equal quantities of butter + flour gently cooked in a pot to a sandy texture) then pouring in hot milk whilst stirring to achieve a wonderful silky smooth white sauce.  The milk was often scented with aromatics such onion, clove and... Read More

Macadamia Nut Milk

Macadamia nut milk is a purely delicious creamy milk that requires no straining and takes about 30 seconds to make.  It’s a staple in the healthy chef househould and I love making mine scented with vanilla bean and a touch of cinnamon. Soak for easier blending and more bio-availability, which is great for sensitive digestive systems. Use as you would regular milk such as in your next power porridge, smoothie, custard or hot chocolate. What’s great about it: There... Read More

Apple + Cinnamon Bread

My favourite fruit this time of year is the fuji apple. What I love about them is that they are wonderfully sweet and juicy to eat so they are the perfect ingredient to make my purely delicious apple + cinnamon bread.  This is the sort of no fuss – one bowl style of bread that can easily be whipped up in around 10 minutes. Your whole kitchen will smell amazing when it’s being baked as the cinnamon apple spice floats through the air.  There is no need to add any... Read More

Power Porridge

  This is my all time favourite porridge that I enjoy most mornings when the weather is a little cold outside. It’s made from vanilla,  flaxseed, chia, fresh apple and a good dose of cinnamon that makes this morning ritual taste exactly like apple strudel.  Adding a little cinnamon has the power to help your body metabolize sugar and reduce insulin levels,  eating as little as 1/2  -  1 teaspoon of cinnamon a day is all you need to feel the benefits. Apple adds... Read More
