As a Personal Trainer with an interest in healthy, wholesome and interesting food I was asked to cater for a weekend country Yoga & Pilates Retreat (New Dawn Retreats). It was a tremendous success and after receiving many compliments and requests for the recipes I have written this cookbook.
I hope you enjoy my healthy take as much as the New Dawn Retreat ladies did.
The Saucy Minx!

Berry Merry Breakfast Smoothie Freshly frozen berries are packed with vitamins and make a thicker smoothie or you can use fresh berries that are in season.

Homemade Chickpea Houmous Serve with hot pitta for lunch or cut up carrots/cauliflower/broccoli & dip away!
Pea & Broad Bean Houmous with avocado oil. A beautiful vibrant green colour packed with flavour and a velvety texture. Sublime.

Spring chicken in a pot Casseroles aren't just for winter - this light, vibrant one-pot is packed with spring vegetables & herby pesto. Serve with homemade bread to mop up the juices.
Foil Baked Salmon Succulent salmon baked in its own juices with a squeeze of lemon juice
Kefir Soured Bread A soured bread made with Kefir. If you like sourdough bread, you'll love this. I've used American cups as the measuring guide. American cups are available from most supermarkets in the UK.
