Recipes for Spring
I don't know about you but the thought of going cold turkey on all those new years resolutions in the middle of winter seems to be a little bizarre. Winter is a time of hibernation and to nourish the body with hearty warming wholesome foods. It is most certainly NOT a time for deprivation and to make grand plans for change. The Spring however, comes with it a new mind set and a time that is a lot easier to set goals and to be a little lighter in what we eat. So i have chosen some of my favourite spring-time recipes for you below.

Recipes for Winter
Winter is a time when it can be harder to eat healthy as we can find ourselves reaching for the carbs and heavy warming foods. So i have found a few "home comforts" and given them a healthy spin so we get the best of both worlds. There are some great winter veggies and fruits in season at this time of year and it's important to eat these seasonal favourites as they are densely nutrient packed. Also check out the blog page for other hints, tips and recipes.

Recipes for Autumn
Its so important to eat seasonally. When fruits and vegetables are in season they taste their best and have their highest nutrient density at that time of year. Autumn sees pumpkin and squash make a big comeback and you can do so much with these vegetables such as stews, soups, roast and even use the seeds to dry out and eat as a snack. I've listed some recipes for this season below but be sure to check out the blog for more.
