You may think you are eating different plant foods when you are eating the same one different ways, so read on to see how you can reach 30 or more per week for health.
Hands up if you love crisp golden pastry? These spinach, ricotta and corn parcels are just delicious, perfect for a cold autumn or winter’s night. You could experiment with adding different vegetables, herbs and spices. If you are looking to reduce your meals with meat being the feature this one ticks that box, with the ricotta cheese, eggs, tasty cheese and ham providing the protein. If you wanted to go meat free you could leave out the ham. As the ham is salty and so is cheese I don’t add in extra salt into the mix.
Muffins are tasty and versatile, enjoyed for snacks or meals. How easy it is to make a batch and pop extra in the freezer for another day. These veggie muffins go well with a hearty bowl of soup for lunch or as a great way to include some vegetables at breakfast time or a pre or post workout healthy snack. Throw in what ever vegetables and herbs you like with some of your favourite tasty cheese. Everyone in the family could be baking and eating these!
