Dave’s Chilli Con Carne

Dave’s Chilli Con Carne

This dish is simple to make. You don’t have to be rigid in terms of vegetables you can add. Sometimes I just open the fridge and if there is courgettes rather than broccoli, sweet potato carrots chopped into cubes rather than peppers I’ll substitute them. If you have children who “hate vegetables” it is a great way to slip them into their diet.

Parsnip and Haricot Bean Soup

Parsnip and Haricot Bean Soup

Soups are a great option for a lunch or a light dinner when you are not feeling like eating a big meal.  You can make this soup on one of your good days, and then portion freeze it for your not so good days. Even if you feel this soup is too much, simply add half soup and half boiling water. This will lighten the soup and you will still get all that goodness.

Pear crumble

Pear crumble

This is a great option for a dessert or even an afternoon snack. It is packed full of goodness and relatively low in sugar. 

If you are baking a lot at home, one very easy tip is to half or ¾ the amount of sugar in your favourite desserts – try it and see. Unless you are talking about a sponge, most desserts can be just as tasty with half the sugar!
