Healthy recipes have never been so exciting and interesting. Whether you’re looking for inspiration to help you eat your recommended 5-a day portions of fruit and veg, want ideas for healthy packed lunches that won’t leave you feeling hungry or searching for lighter pud recipes, you’ll find them all here. You don’t even have to say goodbye to curries, pizzas, pasta and fish and chips, they can all be enjoyed with our delicious healthier versions.

With just a few tweaks to your everyday eating habits you’ll be reaping the benefits of eating more fruit and veg, oily fish, wholegrains, seeds and nuts, and less sugar, processed foods and salt. And, thanks to popular healthy eating food bloggers such as Deliciously Ella and Hemsley & Hemsley, ingredients such as chia seeds, quinoa and agarve nectar are fast becoming mainstream foods.

We’ve got lots of tempting healthy recipes for every meal of the day. Breakfast is always a rush but instead of going without or grabbing a bowl of cereal that’s loaded with sugar and salt, why not make up a batch of homemade fruit and nut granola. It’ll keep in an airtight container ready for sprinkling over yogurt and fruit for a speedy way to kick start your day. For a weekend breakfast or brunch, Davina McCall’s poached eggs with avocado on toast is a satisfying feast.

Healthy lunches, low in carbs and high in protein, such as puy lentil salad with roasted vegetables and goat’s cheese, or our chicken tikka chappati wrap with saffron yogurt, or quinoa salad with chickpeas, soya beans and poached chicken will keep you feeling fuller for longer and help avoid those mid-afternoon sugar cravings.

When it comes to dinner, when time is short, healthy recipes such as satay vegetable stir-fry, lemongrass chicken skewers with spicy squash salad or prawn and coconut balti will soon become favourites. But, for days when only comfort food will do ‘half and half’ cottage pie with root veg mash is completely satisfying and delicious.
