Cook Up a New Healthier Body.
Cooking from scratch is the foundation of healthy eating. But most of us stick to the same handful of recipes. Why not ring the changes by trying one of Lowri’s exclusive new salad recipes?
This is a quick and easy, but incredibly nutritious midweek supper. Salmon, avocado and pumpkin seeds are all packed full of healthy omega 3 fats which are great for your heart, skin and brain. The crisp, pepperiness of the radishes are a great contrast to silky texture of the salmon and avocado. Plus, if you use a good non stick pan and a spray oil, you keep the unhealthy saturated fat down and the salmon stays succulent
Quinoa is a whole grain, similar to rice, but it has a higher protein content and a lower GI (glycaemic index), meaning it releases its energy slowly. So, rather than white pasta or rice, both of which are high GI, quinoa makes a much better base for a super-healthy but still filling salad. Quinoa is pretty bland, though, so adding herbs and an ingredient like flavourful radishes, really peps it up. This salad can be made in advance and will keep in the fridge for 3 – 4 days. It’s ideal for packing in a lunch box or a fast lunch at home. You can serve it with grilled chicken or halloumi, both of which are coated in herbs to really pack a punch flavourwise..
