Recipes

This recipes page is a super healthy recipe compendium that will be regularly updated.

The focus of the recipes in this compendium is to make healthy food really delicious whilst also optimising the nutritional value of the ingredients.

This usually means making really simple food, quickly and inexpensively, but not compromising on quality.

*Tip: we can save a lot of money in energy, as well as saving our precious time, by not over-processing our food. By this I mean, over-cooking or over-combining etc… If we save money on the energy used for cooking then we can afford to buy better value ingredients!

How to use this page:

You can check the ‘Contents’ section below for a list of recipes, but if you want to home in on a particular health benefit of a recipe, or to focus on a specific food, or nutrient, then using the ‘Find’ function is essential.

Also, as the compendium grows it’s going to become increasingly difficult to find what you’re looking for. So the best way round this problem, as well, is to use the ‘Find’ shortcut.

To open ‘find’ is simple, but differs from Apple Mac to PC, as follows:

PC: Ctrl F (Press Control (Ctrl) and the F key simultaneously)

Apple Mac: Cmd + F (Press Comand (Cmd) and the F key simultaneously)

Here’s a video that shows you how to use the F command.
