Summer Food Inspiration

With summer now in full swing, something slightly lighter and healthier always hits the spot.

But it can be difficult to make a simple salad look as good as it tastes. Spiralizing your fruit and vegetables is one way of making a delicious salad really come to life. And what better way to transport you to the white cliffs and sandy beaches of Greece than an all-time favourite – Greek Salad with Roasted Feta? Why not give it a twist of sprialized cucumber to spruce it up?

If you’re looking for something slightly more hearty, but still want a little health kick, swap out your spaghetti for courgettetti to create a quick and easy carb substitute. Courgette Spaghetti and Tomato Sauce is the perfect mid-week meal that you can cook in 20 minutes.

When it comes to breakfast, try swapping out your normal breakfast cereal for a smooth and creamy Chocolate, Coconut and Hazelnut Bowl that’s full of antioxidants and will fuel you for the day.

You can create this delicious breakfast bowl in just 10 minutes.

And it wouldn’t be summer without a new healthy and energising smoothie to try out. The Avocado Banana Shake only takes five minutes to make and is perfect after a morning workout and will help with digestion too.
