Nutrient-rich, simple and delicious recipes, using seasonal British produce to nurture gut health

healthy | sustainable | delicious

I hope you enjoy using these recipes as much as we do – quick and tasty food for busy families, easily varied according to what’s in season or what you have or haven’t got in your cupboard! They all promote fabulous gut bacteria through the fibre and/or antioxidants they contain or by using fermented ingredients. Read more here about the vital roles these bacteria play in our long-term health. If possible, and you have the time, try and source some of the ingredients from local suppliers – it doesn’t take long to swing into your local farm shop or use some of the links given for British producers.

Sustainable food choices for people and nature to thrive.

Winter red cabbage and apple

Winter red cabbage and apple

Red cabbage is packed with antioxidants – these are the plants natural defence chemicals and they’re extremely important for our long term health. Our gut bacteria actiavte them for us so they’re great for gut health too! Using these seasonal veg along Hillfarm cold pressed rapeseed oil makes this a truly nutrient-packed dish.

Autumn Apple and Walnut Loaf

Autumn Apple and Walnut Loaf

Autumn is one of my favourite times of the year, not least as we have a bounty of apples! If you’re lucky you can pick them off a tree – this recipe works with bramleys (cooking apples) just as well as eating apples – be sure to keep their skins on for extra fibre!

Spelt and Quinoa warm cheesy scones

Spelt and Quinoa warm cheesy scones

I have to be honest and admit that our daughter Jane created this one – making the scones as a sharing round was her idea too and enhances that ‘together’ feeling that sharing great food should bring.

Using quinoa puffs and spelt flour makes them especially healthy and packed with fibre, and we like to crumble the cheese in rather than grate it, to make more of the cheese in the scone.

Not-naughty Chocolate Fridge cake

Not-naughty Chocolate Fridge cake

We all need treats and I love baking food that tastes amazing as well as being fabulously gut healthy!

This recipe uses Hodmedods organic puffed quinoa and rolled oats, as well as Doves Farm ‘palm oil-free’ digestive biscuits! It’s also much lower in free sugar as I use chopped dates too.

Quick to make and extremely popular in our house!

Easy Family Rainbow Trout Pasta

Easy Family Rainbow Trout Pasta

I’ve worked with the British Trout Association in creating this colourful dish, designed to be quick and easy for busy families and a great way to get everyone enjoying oily fish, and of course those all-important veggies too!

Carrot and Seabuckthorn Smoothie

Carrot and Seabuckthorn Smoothie

As a Nutritionist I’m lucky to work with some innovative British food producers. On their family farm in Essex, David and son, Ben Eagle have been farming seabuckthorn for 5 years. It’s taken this long for them to work out which varieties grow best in our British climate and it’s required a huge amount of patience! But, they believe in their crop which is renowned for its health benefits in over 40 countries with similarly cool, coastal environments. More on its nutrition below but the zingy flavour of these berries is fabulous for breakfast!
