  • BLUEBERRY POWER SMOOTHIE

    The NHS Choices website calls blueberries “The grandad of the superfood trend”, valued for high levels of antioxidants and other nutrients. Indeed, some nutritionists believe that if you make only one change to your diet, it should be to add blueberries. I’m not going to argue with that, I eat them almost every day when […]

  • RUNNER’S PORRIDGE

    Whilst I try my best to avoid all refined carbohydrates, every runner needs a good base of carbs to power (or recover from) any form of long distance running.

I served with black bean and tomato salad (see previous recipe) plus avocado and mixed green salad with some lemon juice and olive […]

    PALEO COTTAGE PIE We often think of people of the paleolithic era as cavemen, which is pretty harsh as they likely lived in wooden huts and other structures that simply didn’t stand the test of time. Cottages, even. So there’s no reason why they wouldn’t have loved a paleo cottage pie of an evening, after […]
