Let's Do Lunch

Spicy Salsa Prawns with Courgette Noodles

The main thing you guys tell me over and over when I ask for feedback, is that you are desperate for more lunch ideas. Working from home, I fall in to the trap of a sandwich or realising it is 3pm and I haven’t even eaten. So this year, I have took on the challenge to not only transform the way I eat, but hopefully how you do to. So welcome to the ‘Let’s Do Lunch’ series. This low calorie, punchy salsa’d dish is ideal to pack for work. Ready in ten minutes, you can make it in the morning so it is super fresh. It is so super simple to make, has a fiery kick and although the ingredient list isn’t long, the flavour is all there.

Loaded Parsnip Fries

Happy Friday everyone, thought I would pop up a recipe that is not only quick for the weekend, but super tasty too. If you are anything like me, loaded cheesy fries are an absolute must of a side dish. Along with lobster┬ámac & cheese. But we are just sticking with the fries today, I’ve swapped out normal potato for some parsnips. Now please stick with me, it’s a great way to get some veg and I totally thinks parsnips are a little underrated. You can totally use them in more ways than on a Sunday roast. They are inexpensive, loaded with flavour and a heap of vitamins and iron.

Ok, so I’ve cut out the carbs, but loaded fries are supposed to be an indulgence right? Don’t you worry, my magic cheese sauce will have you wanting to lick the plate. In fact, I’d go as far to say that you will LOVE this cheese sauce. Add in a rainbow salsa and well, you’ve got something to impress at the dinner table. Who needs restaurant sides when you can make epic ones at home, now only if you had a burger to go with them….stay tuned.
