Linseeds are a fantastic female food. They are full of nutrition and soluble fibre and can support gut health, relieve constipation and aid safe elimination of oestrogen. They are a core part of any breast cancer protocol but… let’s face it… they’re not the most palatable of seeds.

Easy Chicken Tagine
This is a recipe I make all the time but always forget to photograph. It’s incredibly quick and impressively tasty. I remembered my camera today so I can finally share it.

Leeks baked with chorizo and tomato
Leeks, to me, are one of the most underrated vegetables. They are full of valuable prebiotic fibre and oestrogen detoxing sulphur and, cooked well, they become velvety and unctuous, complementing both meat and fish.

Posh enough for supper with friends, just right for a homely, hearty meal when it’s cold outside, and perfect when you come home from holiday and need to top up on your vegetable intake. I often make it on a Wednesday night to use up all my vegetables before my fresh Riverford box arrives the next day. You can really use any vegetables you’ve got hanging around. Swap the pancetta for chorizo, or leave it out altogether if you want a vegetarian version. Continue reading
Vietnamese Chicken Salad
This, for me, is the most delicious and moreish salad I have ever tasted. Slightly fiddly the first time you make it, it soon becomes second nature and easy to whip up in a flash. You won’t regret trying this recipe, I guarantee! Continue reading
