Trying to keep a healthy diet is hard, especially if the canteen at work or college tempts you with its smell of greasy chips or fried chicken. (don’t get me started on the chocolate and crisps at the counter!) In this situation, you have to be strong! Its super hard though, I totally understand. So how do we shatter these temptations and ward off those cheeky chips cravings? Simple, fast and healthy food that is whipped up in no time at home and is chok-a-blok full of taste, that’s how! Here is one of my favourite packed lunches, a Buckwheat noodle based cold dish. It is super healthy and delicious. It will make your colleagues a little envious!

A nice way to jazz up some sweet potatoes if you’re stuck for ideas.
A delicious dip, try it with hummus, flatbread and olives in a mezze meal.

A great vegetarian dish that can be served with a chilli-spiced warm tomato sauce if it's chilly out!
When I first moved to Ireland I was baffled and slightly horrified by the coleslaw/ham and coleslaw/cheese combo. In South Africa I'd only ever had coleslaw as a salad with a 'braai' (BBQ). Now I secretly enjoy this mayonnaisey concoction on a crusty roll! A real superfood, cabbage is such an integral part of Irish cuisine that I decided to give coleslaw the ish makeover. Use red cabbage, add another Irish superfood-seaweed- and lots super seeds and sprouted seeds and you have a super slaw. The dressing in this recipe is a lighter, zingier alternative to plain mayonnaise.
