Some things are just better when they are home made. For me, hummus is at the top of the list. It is super easy and quick to make if you have a decent food processor, and the best part is that you know exactly what is in it without scouring the label and finding things you would prefer not to eat.
Served with carrot sticks or snow peas, hummus is the perfect after work snack for us, bridging that gap of hunger between lunch and dinner time.
Recently we have made a pretty significant change to the way we have been eating. After reading The 4-Hour Body I had a realisation that as vegetarians we tend to rely on carbs for a majority of our meals.

If you are a new vegetarian, or have other specific dietary requirements (particularly if they differ from your family), Christmas can be a challenging time.

Yotam Ottolenghi is such an inspiring chef and in my eyes her really can do no wrong.
His new cookbook, Jerusalem, is a work of art, full of stories of his home city (which is very topical in the current political climate) and stunning recipes. Though it has sections for meat and fish, as usual he takes good care of us vegetarians with beautiful dishes based on the freshest of produce.
Do you ever get stuck for ideas for easy or healthy dinners, breakfasts or snacks? I am so excited to share with you a FREE downloadable e-book full of easy and nutritious recipes (with plenty of vegetarian options) that I hope will help to inspire you to get into the kitchen and cook yourself a healthy meal.
