High Fibre Fig Protein Smoothie
I usually whizz this up when I've a glut of figs to use up at this time of year.  The blueberries add a lovely colour and taste but you can use banana if you're not watching your carb levels or need the extra energy.  If you need to boost the calories and protein, add whole milk instead of water.  Unless your lactose intolerant, avoid almond or soya milk which will boost the sugar content - not ideal if you are trying to lean out.   2 fresh figs 150g Total Greek Yoghurt 150ml iced water 1/2 cup blueberries 1/2 tsp stevia  Read more

Pomegranate Protein Smoothie

Great post workout or as a quick breakfast.  This is brimming with anti-oxidants and just bursting with Vitamin C. I always have frozen summer berries to hand as they're an amazing source of vitamins.  Containing red currants and blackcurrants they add a gorgeous tangy to my favourite protein smoothies and available all year round.  The Greek Yoghurt contains plenty post workout protein to fuel muscle repair and growth and adds a wonderful creaminess without the need for a whey protein powder.  

 

This is very low carb - with a little fructose from the berries and pomegranate and a tiny bit of lactose in the yoghurt.  I always avoid 'added' sugars like honey or agarve nectar and chose Stevia which has zero impact on blood sugar levels.

Seared Tuna Salad

This recipe is so super simple that I can hardly call it a recipe.  Many of my favourite meals are assembly jobs and they're a hit with clients too who want delicious, elegant, quick suppers without the effort.

I usually make this whenever I see big fat tuna steaks - as the recipe does work best on thick cut filets so that the centre is left rare.
Simply brush the tuna steaks with sesame oil and season well with Malden Sea Salt and ground black pepper.  Then simply roll in sesame seeds or a mixture of Nigella seeds and sesame.
Then add a tablespoon of sesame oil to a flat frying pan and sear on high heat for a minute on each side, before removing from the pan and resting.  Then slice and add to the top of a salad or serve with warm winter veggies.
At home we either have this with...

Vanilla and Apple Bircher

This breakfast bircher is an absolute family favourite and a real hit with our clients.  There's something comforting about doing the prep the night before - which literally take 2 minutes - and waking up to beautifully prepared pots of gorgeousness.  This mini meal will really set you up for the morning and tide you over until your mid morning snack.  The Total Greek gives it a wonderful dose of protein and just a tiny amount of soaked oats some very gentle and soft slow release carbohydrate.  

 

I'd consider these a moderate protein, low carb meal so add a slice of toast with peanut butter or eggs if you're not trying to lose body fat.  If that's too much, add my sugar-free hot chocolate which you can even decant and take on the school run or walk to tube.
