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 Lemon and Lavender protein balls. They are super easy to make and absolutely delicious.

When it calls for a really super quick supper I can prep before I go out of the door In the morning, or even the night before, and have on the table in less than 10 minutes these are my go to favourites.

 

We all love Salmon in our house and it’s so good for you too. It’s a high source of protein, one of the body’s building blocks, is packed with omega 3 fatty acids as well as being full of vitamins and minerals especially Potassium, Selenium and Vitamin B12

This vegan chilli is gluten free and packed full of protein!

As a family we make an effort to eat vegan two or three days a week but with a very sporty teenager in the house I like to know we’re keeping up with our protein intake too. When I was vegetarian in my early 20s and 30s I had such a low protein diet that over time I became quite ill. I was living on carbohydrates and sugar and it really wasn’t healthy or energising.

I love soup and it’s a super filling soup for the coldest of days.

Lentils are really healthy and a great source of protein so I often add them to salad, soups and make them into pates. The soup is especially good if you’re not much of a cook or just want something really quick and simple but that tastes delicious too.

Ingredients:

1 tablespoon coconut oil

1kg carrots peeled and chopped

120g red lentils

1 onion, finely chopped

1 litre stock made with filtered water. (I use this as it is gluten free)
