Someone asked me for a good home made muesli bar recipe this week and I think this one looks pretty good. Commercially produced muesli bars can be loaded with sugar and saturated or even hydrogenated fats and often don’t contain any natural fruit. Homemade muesli bars are a healthy snack you can put in your kid’s lunchboxes each day. You can be sure of the ingredients and you can add your own touches. Have a go at this recipe.

Sitting here on a cold and rainy day and thinking of comfort foods? Feel like a pudding? Its always a good idea to include fruit in your puddings. That way you can at least ensure your treat is also packed with a few good vitamins. Charlottes can be served hot or cold. Individual portion sizes, using individual ramekins, are good for portion control if you are watching your weight.

Kids don’t like courgette or zucchini? Have some leftovers in the fridge? Here is a great way to get the kids to eat more vegetables without even knowing it. It’s also a nice way to use up your leftovers. Courgettes are called zucchini back where I’m from. People tend to love them or hate them but they are a super vegetable when it comes to nutrition. They are low in calories, a source of folate, potassium, and vitamins A and C. See if your guests can guess the secret ingredient in this tea cake.

I love to discover new traditional foods. Simnel Cake is a new one to me. It’s a traditional British Easter cake, to celebrate the end of Lent and has been eaten since medieval times. Im obviously a bit slow catching up with this one! I found a lovely recipe to try. Sure, its a cake but a little bit of treat as a celebration now and then is fine. After all, food isnt just about health, its about family, tradition and celebration as well. This recipe serves 12. Happy Easter.
