1 handful spinach
1 tbsp rocket
1/2 stick celery, chopped
1 radish, chopped
1 tbsp cucumber, sliced
2-3 cherry tomatoes, sliced
1/4 carrot, thinly sliced
1/4 bell pepper, thinly sliced
1 spring onion, thinly sliced
1 tbsp sweet corn
1 tbsp beetroot, diced
1 gherkin, sliced

Salad toppings

1/3 avocado, peeled and sliced
1 tbsp olives, halved
1 tbsp mixed nuts, you can use any but we like walnuts, cashews, almonds and hazelnuts
1 tbsp hummus

To make the hummus

200g chickpeas, drained and rinsed
1 tbsp sesame tahini
Juice of 1/2 lemon
1/2 tsp garlic paste
Pinch of salt
Pinch of ground black pepper

For the dressing

3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 tbsp unpasteurised cider vinegar

This one couldn’t be simpler as there is no cooking involved. It’s also vegan friendly, high in good quality plant fats and super healthy!

1. Add all the ingredients for the hummus into a blender and blend until you have a smooth consistency. The longer you blend it for the smoother it will become, personal preference here. 
2. Arrange all salad items on the plate, add to that the peeled and chopped avocado, the olives, mixed nuts and freshly blitzed hummus.
2. Pour the oil and vinegar into and bowl, add the salt and pepper and whisk to combine. Drizzle over the top of the salad and it’s good to go.

Recipe - The incredible egg wrap


How to make an egg wrap base ready to roll up your favourite ingredients. For this you will need a good cast iron crepe pan, heated with a little extra virgin olive oil and/or some butter. The bigger the pan the better and we find that a 28cm diameter is perfect for the job and means you will be able to roll up your ingredients no problem.


2 Large eggs – whisked
Extra virgin olive oil
Pinch of salt and pepper


1. Heat up your pan over a high heat and add the butter and oil.  
2. Crack the eggs into a bowl, add the seasoning and whisk well.
3. Add this mixture to the heated pan and allow to cook on the bottom until it starts to colour.
4. Finish under a hot grill to cook the top of the wrap, again until there is some colour to the egg.
5. When finished transfer to a plate resting on some kitchen towel to soak up any excess oils.
6. Put into the fridge to finish cooling.
7. This is a great way to batch cook; you can make multiples at a time and keep them in the fridge ready for you to fill when you need them.
8. They will last up to 5 days if kept refrigerated in an airtight container.

Bone Broth: Nature's Elixir

Bone Broth: Nature's Elixir

 It's a healthy favourite that’s been passed from generation to generation as a cure for everything from a cold to a low mood. Nothing quite beats it when you’re feeling a little under the weather. Bone broth has many benefits and utilises every part of an animal, making it healthy and resourceful. Not only does it taste delicious, there really is something wholesome and restorative about it. Bones are any animal’s structural home on Earth. They quite literally hold us up and root us to every other part of our being. It makes sense then that when we need to go back to our roots and find some healing, a good old fashioned broth is the best way to go. Here’s why you should consider boiling up a broth in order to gain some serious health benefits:

Clears up gut issues

Bone Broth has been shown to assist those who suffer from leaky gut syndrome. It’s full of gelatin which helps to heal holes in the intestines and relieve symptoms of the illness. However, it’s not just those with a leaky gut who can benefit. The research suggests that the benefits on overall gut health are still significant in those without a specific gut weakness. The gut is crucial to helping the digestive system function properly in order to remove waste from the body, so it’s important that we look after it. All the more reason to treat yourself to a warming bone broth.

Skin Elasticity

Don’t bother heading to the cosmetic surgeon to keep you young - bone broth could be the answer! The collagen found in this delicious health food helps keep your skin looking young and fresh without the need of any procedures or products - magic!


There’s no denying how natural it is to reach for bone broth when you’re feeling unwell and it’s not an accident that your body craves it. Your immune system is your own personal bodyguard and defends against any kind of dangerous cells found in the blood. Luckily, bone broth is made of some amazing amino acids which boost the immune system and keep it fighting disease.

Heal your joints

The older we get, the more important it is to protect our joints and bone broth does just that. The natural collagen found in bone broth which keeps us looking lovely, also helps to heal joints by building protein rich cushions that rest between our bones. Our joints often stiffen and become subject to jarring and discomfort as we get older, so it’s really important that we do all we can to ensure the joints have the lubrication that they need to move. Bone Broth is easy to make and amazingly healthy for you, especially if you feel a little weak or under the weather. It’s a healthy comfort food (and how many of those are there?!).

That wholesome feeling that you get whilst sipping on a broth is your body telling you that it’s doing great things for you! We recommend giving it a try and letting us know how you get on. Connect with us on Facebook or Instagram (@lifestylingkitchen) to share your bone broth story!

Fermented Foods: Why we should be eating them?

Fermented Foods: Why we should be eating them?

The term ‘Fermented Food’ can sometimes sound a little scary!

BUT, there’s no need to panic.  Most people consume fermented food without even realising. That cup of coffee you’re sipping on?  Fermented.  The sourdough bread you ate at brunch?  Also fermented.  And what about Chocolate?  You guessed it...fermented!

So, chances are that you’ve probably eaten them before and really enjoyed them.  However, this blog is all about the healthy fermented foods (sorry, we’re not going to tell you that chocolate is the new health food!)  Fermented foods can be added to any diet to aid digestion and contribute to a healthier lifestyle overall.  


What are they?

You’ll be surprised by the amount of foods that are fermented!  The great news is that most of these foods work fantastically with salads and can be added to any of our original salad options.  Great examples of healthy fermented foods are:

  • Sauerkraut
  • Unpasteurised Cheese
  • Greek Yogurt
  • Pickles
  • Soy Sauce
  • Kimchi
  • Kombucha

Why are they so good for you? 

Fermented foods have been touched by the digestive gods.

This is because they go through a process of lactofermentation in which probiotic bacterias are created, which is great for the body.  Probiotics increase the amount of good bacteria in the gut which can reverse bowel disease and improve overall gut health.  Hence, these foods are amazing for your digestive system.  

Alongside this, lactofermentation generates enzymes in the body which aid digestion, as well as Omega-3 and B-vitamins which are crucial to overall health.  Not only do these little guys have incredible benefits for the gut, they are also able to decrease the amount of supplements that you need to take in order to maintain your overall wellness.

The research has also shown that they can even have an effect on your overall wellbeing.  Science has backed the idea that ‘gut feeling’ is real.  Serotonin is a neurotransmitter which is created in the gut and travels to the brain in order to make us feel good and in some cases not so good.  Fermented foods aid overall gut health, which in turn contributes to the creation of serotonin which makes us feel great.

They are amazingly healthy and come at a relatively low cost.  Unlike other health foods which might break the bank, they have been eaten for years across an array of cultures and have been hailed for their affordability and ability to stay fresh.  They last forever and are able to retain their nutrients, which has contributed to their popularity in the past.

Eat your pickles! 

There are loads of great ways to add fermented foods to your diet.  Maybe you want to try and make your own sourdough bread?  Or try fermenting your own vegetables?

If you’re not feeling so adventurous, don’t sweat it!  You can always head to the supermarket to source some pickles, Greek yoghurt and unpasteurised cheese which will make the perfect addition to any healthy diet.  Whatever you do, try and add a couple of portions of fermented foods into your diet over the next week and see if you notice any changes.  You could even order yourself a couple of salads and add fermented foods to help you get stuck in.

Don’t forget to get in touch if you have any questions or requests - we are always on hand to offer nutritional support, advice and encouragement.  Good Luck!
