Creamy Pumpkin Pasta

Here are 3 reasons to make the most of pumpkin season!

1 – It’s a seasonal veg (eating seasonally is great for the environment).
2 – It’s high in fibre which helps to keep us fuller for longer.
3 – It’s a good source of antioxidants.

Here is a fantastic pumpkin recipe for the pumpkin (and pasta) lovers out there.
This recipe is dairy-free and contains no gluten.

Healthy Almond Flour Cake

I don’t ever calorie count but I am well aware of my daily intake of carbohydrates because a high carb diet causes immediate weight gain around my abdomen. My experience of working with children with diabetes (type 1 and 2) and with women with diabetes in pregnancy, has taught me so much about diet and why calorie counting is pointless and misleading. It also helped me create the 1-2-3 Healthy Eating Approach which I use as a healthy eating tool with children and parents, regardless of whether they have diabetes or not.

Buckwheat Healthy Granola

I believe that if we are to have breakfast (only eat when you are hungry, right?) then we must ensure it is a healthy and balanced breakfast.

I am not keen on cereals. I think they are causing more harm to the population than we want to admit (obesity, type 2 diabetes, pre-diabetes, high blood sugars, sugar cravings etc.).

It is not often I have breakfast but when I do, it’s always a well-balanced breakfast. Like this buckwheat granola.
