Ali’s Super Green Juice

I love a green juice mid-morning or mid-afternoon if I’m feeling like I need a break in the office or am just back from a dog walk. They seem to pick me up and provide a spring to my step. All that green goodness is a real energy boost. Although I’ve added so many greens I like to get a scoop of the Arbonne Greens Balance in there too as it has a broad spectrum of fruits and veg in it so you’re ...

Ali’s Beetroot Hummus

I love beetroot but no one else in the Hutchinson house will touch it. I’ve tried adding it to smoothies, chocolate brownies, soups but they still detect it so I’ve now given up and have to eat a whole bunch to myself. Shame! This beetroot hummus recipe came out of necessity. I had cooked some beetroot that had arrived in our organic box but had far more than I needed so was wondering what to do ...

Ali's chia puddings

I love Chia Pudding. It’s amazing how it soaks up liquid to become a gloopy, sticky mess. You need to get the consistency right or it can be a bit frogspawn-ish! So do experiment. Chia seeds are super hydrating, and are bursting with four times more iron than spinach! You can add any fruits that are in season to create a breakfast bowl or supper dessert. I like to add coconut flakes and seeds and ...

Ali’s Lemon and Lavender Protein Balls

I came back from 10 days of glorious sunshine in Italy to a wet and cold UK summer! Burr… where did the beautiful weather I left behind go too. I even lit the wood burner on Monday evening it was so chilly! I also returned home to a lavender hedge which is nearly over but for a few fresh flowers. Not wanting my lavender to go to waste I’ve been cooking up some treats in the form of these luscious ...

Christmas treats – the healthy version

It’s sometimes really difficult to be good and stay off the wheat and sugar at this time of year. Having a few healthy treats in the fridge or cupboard for when the munchies strike or to divert your focus when the Quality Street start to circulate will help. Here’s a few of my favourites: Ali’s Coconut Lemon Meltaway Snowballs I love having tiny treats available for when the munchies strike and ...

Raw chocolate Bites

Miss H has a chocolate habit. She rows 5 times a week so she can afford to have it but I still don’t want her eating cheap chocolate and ending up diabetic like Olympic Rower Steve Redgrave. I often make a batch of these delicious raw chocolate bites to keep her going. At this time of year they are great in her rowing bag but in the summer it’s a no-no as they melt too quickly and are best eaten ...

Almond Fudge Protein Bars

I made these as a treat when our Danish friends and neighbours came round for coffee last year and they are the one of those treats that gets asked for again and again. She has the recipe now but more often than not I get asked to make them! Sadly they are about to move to London so I can see me having to take batches down to them…It’s a hard life but someone has to do it and any excuse for a day ...
