Toasted Bread with Quark & Fresh Figs: The Mediterranean Dietitian 

“For a long time now I wanted to create a breakfast recipe a bit different, a bit inspiring so putting together slices of freshly toasted sourdough bread with quark and fresh figs gave me such a buzz of colours that I wanted to continue taking photos forever. Toasted bread is a classic for the mornings but I wanted to add some cheese or spread that would be fat-free but give a good amount of protein to start the day. Together with the sliced fresh figs, this breakfast looks like a version of a very healthy cheesecake so the recipe could be used for a weekday dessert instead.” Read more…

Paprika Three Been Stew: Living Energetically

“This stew is a delicious main meal and is really warming during the cold spell we’re having at the minute. It is jam packed with protein rich beans and so you’re still getting plenty of protein and a big fibre hit. If I can’t completely sway you to try this tasty plant based meal, then it also makes a delicious side dish to have with fish or chicken. I also often make a huge batch of it on Saturday and eat it with different veggie based salads throughout the week. And it freezes well too so you’ve always got something healthy on hand.” Read more…
