For Those Indecisive Days

Ever get those days when you just crave everything and anything? No one food will satisfy the cravings so when dinnertime comes about you are stuck? Well... this week I have had a lot of those days! So here are some of my solutions!

A plate of everything. literally. 


zoodles with whole grain mustard, raw spinach, sweet corn, olives, tomato slices, shaved carrot, almonds, beet root and, in the middle, red bell pepper filled with cooked put lentils (mixed with lemon juice and whole grain mustard), spring onion and chopped red pepper. 

.............................................

veg sticks and dip 


Homemade Hummus/ Houmous. This is one of my favourite dips and goes perfectly with veg sticks, in wraps, with salad, pita chips or as a spread. It’s healthy and SO easy to make too…why buy shop bought?! This recipe is adaptable, I’ve made it before without some of the ingredients and it still works well.

You will need:
- 1 (400g) can chickpeas
- 1tbsp tahini
- 1 finely chopped garlic clove
- pinch of sea salt + pepper
- pinch cayenne pepper
- 1tsp olive oil (optional)
- 1-2tbsp fresh lemon juice - some lemon zest
- (opt. add 1-2tbsp 0% greek yogurt for extra creaminess)!
- opt. 1 small roasted red pepper (skin removed)

Make It!
1. Drain chickpeas. 
2. Place all ingredients in a food processor or blender and blitz until smooth! 
(You can also use home cooked chickpeas)

Zoodles



This is my favourite thing just now for a light lunch. It’s summer and I want to be outside and this only takes 3 minutes to make! Zoodles with Tahini! 


- spiralize two courgettes/ zucchini.
- chop 1 small onion, a small handful fresh parsley and slice a few olives.
- thin out 1tbsp pure tahini with 1-2tbsp water.
- mix it all together and top with ground black pepper and more tahini drizzle (if desired).

Greek Salad with a Twist!

Simply spiralized cucumber, diced tomato, pitted + sliced olives and chopped onion topped with a sprinkle of dried oregano, lemon juice, lemon zest and balsamic vinegar (I also added in some cooked puy lentils after I took the photo)...so delicious and refreshing!
