Did someone say Bikini-body for summer…?

Well, not really, but we have been eating an awful lot of raw main meals this week. never hurts to try and cut down on unhealthy fats and the uptake of fresh fruit and veg has been great.


Lunch – Coleslaw lettuce wraps with mustard and maple syrup dressing.


Dinner- Raw chestnut mushrooms stuffed with spicy guacamole and cucumber, tomato and basil salad.



Melon, banana, strawberries and clementine.


Lettuce and avocado salad with mustard and maple syrup dressing.  I am just loving this dressing… it is just a tablespoon of dijon mustard, a tablespoon of maple syrup and the juice of half a lesson stirred vigorously. Mmmm…… simple and good.


This was a huge hit in our house. It was simply raw courgette ribbons topped with salsa. I chopped up raw tomatos, crushed one garlic clove, a tiny bit of diced onion and marinated it in olive oil, lemon juice ad fresh basil leaves for several hours. I then made the courgette ribbons by using the vegetable peeler added the salsa and scattered with walnuts. It was really very good indeed!

Lettuce Wraps




This is a favourite summer lunch or supper staple for us. Lettuce stuffed with a mixture of chopped vegetables, avocado, nuts (usually cashews but we only had flaked almonds in the house yesterday), fresh mint, coriander and basil and with a dipping sauce made of soy and sweet chilli sauce.

It is simple, but so so so delicious. You can feel it doing the body good.
