Eat The May Way….I’ve got you!
Enjoy these fresh menu ideas that you can mix and match with your regular favourites.


This week, I’ve suggested some recipes to help you improve the health and integrity of your gut.

Fibre; both insoluble and soluble are key to ensuring a healthy gut microbiome; specifically, the microorganisms living in your intestines. A person has about 300 to 500 different species of bacteria in their digestive tract. While some microorganisms are harmful to our health, many are incredibly beneficial and even necessary to a healthy body.


    • Mediterranean Za’atar Mushrooms with Pan-fried Halloumi
      Here’s a fabulously simple Mediterranean mushroom breakfast/brunch you must try!! Sauté mushrooms in a little olive oil until they are slightly crispy. Meanwhile, separately, pan-fry (no need to add oil) or griddle halloumi. Serve on toasted sourdough, with a generous sprinkle of Za’atar and an even more generous drizzle of olive oil (it makes it!)Za’atar is a delicious middle eastern seasoning; use it in salads vegetables or sprinkled as a tasty garnish as I have here. No need for extra salt as both Halloumi and Za’atar are naturally salty.
    • Healthy Protein Packed Granola Bars ***
      These scrumptious protein-rich granola Bars are SOOOO good! A delicious and far healthier homemade alternative to the shop-bought energy bars, that more often than not, although high in protein, are also very high sugar. They’re an ideal snack for slow afternoons or even better, post-exercise!Do let me know how you get in the comments below the recipes! Enjoy!
