    Zucchini and corn fritters

I like to serve them with a salad, and some tomato chutney. Serves 4-6. Ingredients:  1 large zucchini 1 can corn, unsalted 4 eggs 2 tsp curry powder Salt and pepper to taste 1 handful parsley, chopped 1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese 1 cup gluten free flour (Or almost any other flour you…

    Paprika spiced sweet potato and ham salad

    It’s been awhile since I posted a recipe on Nutrilly Nutrition, and this salad I came up with for lunch today was a winner. I was super hungry after a mammoth gym session, and I knew some wholefood carbohydrates was the best way to go. I also wanted something fresh, filling and nutritious. I added some rice noodles too, but you could omit them and it would still be a great salad! Ingredients: 2 medium sweet potato 1 tsp olive oil 1 tsp paprika 1/2 tsp cumin 2 large handfuls mixed lettuce leaves 10 cm piece of cucumber 1 handful cherry tomatoes small bunch parsley 1 Tbsp pine nuts 3-4…

    Surviving a Buffet: Your guide to Christmas parties

    It’s the time of year when weekends are filled with Christmas related events: Family things, work Christmas parties, kids Christmas parties and Christmas events with friends. Sadly this also means huge amounts of unhealthy food. Generally Christmas means chips, dips, sausage rolls, sweets, pastries, meat, desserts, pudding, and all the trimmings. Nutritionally – not so great for our health. I recently went to my partners work Christmas party, and it turned out to be my worst nightmare – a seafood buffet. Firstly, I have a huge aversion to seafood (due to a bad bout of food poisoning from some bad seafood a few years ago) and secondly, buffets are crazy.…
