- Family Nutritionist has a recipe for green and orange ribbons with fettucine, a lovely way to balance out the vegetable to starchy carbohydrate ratio. If you can’t get mustard greens you could use silverbeet.
- I wouldn’t recommend this approach to anyone, but here’s what happens when a meat addict goes hard core vegan for one month.
- I love the sound of these Turkish Red Lentil Balls – I think I’ll be cooking them this weekend.
- Chew On This blogs about eating organics on a budget. Given most of us can’t afford to be 100% organic, what are the best buys for your health and the planet.
- I’m currently reading Animal, Vegetable, Miracle by Barbara Kingsolver – one family’s year of eating foods either grown locally or from their backyard. They have a website, including a seasonal tour of what’s happening in their garden – I particularly love the photo of asparagus emerging from the ground.
- DietMotion lists the small steps you can take to lose weight and improve your health. You don’t have to do all these at once. Instead, pick a few and adapt those into your daily and weekly routine. Once you’re used to doing them, add a couple more in. In that way you are edging your way towards being healthier.
- I’ve been coming across beetroot recipes all week. It’s my favourite vegetable and I’m always happy to find new ways of cooking it. My personal favourites are Lucy’s beetroot soup, Well-Seasoned Cook’s yellow beets with walnuts, a baked beetroot and chickpea salad with a dash of pomegranate molasses and every child’s nightmare, roasted beets with rice, greens and brussel sprouts.
