This section is about putting together high fibre ingredients quickly-to create side dishes, snacks & fast meals without putting in to much effort or thought. Time shouldn’t stand in your way of feeding yourself like a frickin superstar with a private chef!!
The following are all short order recipes or food ideas incorporating seasonal produce & everyday high fibre ingredients.
Spicy Zucchini Chips
These are super yummy. A fast side dish to go with anything…or just a quick yummy snack.
Balsamic & Black Pepper Strawberries
Wasabi Avocado Dip
This is absolutely delicious as a side to a roast salmon sushi bowl. Add a shredded carrot & bean shoot salad, sushi rice, the avo dip, pickled ginger & fried shallots for a zingy textural bowl of yummy.
These little beauties are packed with flavour & fibre. The use of fresh carrot rather than the usual seeds, nuts & dried fruits in bliss balls of the ‘now’ is a bit less sugary & creates a softer ‘cakey’ version. It’s also a great way to use a really cheap ingredient like carrots, if you make these regularly.
Quick Cabbage, Fennel & Carrot Salad
A quick & tangy salad to go with any meal or just add some sliced chicken or your favourite protein & a crumble of feta & you have a fast, easy, healthy lunch.
Sprouts, Red Cabbage & Red Onion Salad
A quick salad making sprouts the hero…which lets be honest is difficult. They have a bad reputation for being boring ‘health’ food. Give this a go & see what you think?
Curried Chickpeas on Toast
Baked beans but better for you. Make it yourself in 10 minutes, double the batch and it will keep in the fridge for days ready to whip out when you want a light, healthy, fibre fuelled meal.
Tomato, Red Lentil & Star Anise Soup
If you are in the mood for soup but not the work, try this… it’s so easy to make & has a delightful tangy flavour. It is also full of good fibre & lots of nutrients from the onion, garlic, chilli & ginger.
This makes a yummy, creamy dressing. My favourite use is smeared onto a plate with lots of veggies on top, some sliced chicken breast, a crumble of crispy bacon or feta cheese. Add a soft boiled egg, a drizzle of EVOO, a final sprinkle of salt & pepper, for a healthy, tasty meal.
This is a really healthy substitute for mashed potato…BUT it tastes amazing you will never want mash again. Super fast & easy too.
