While the odd spell of hedonistic feasting is a delightful thing, there comes a point where our bodies finally catch up with our minds and begin craving fresh, simple, healthy food. Whether through choice or necessity (there's nothing like the post-Christmas waistband wake up call . . . ) we seek out dishes to absolve our sins with nutrients and vitamins. With the health food movement only growing bigger every year, fortunately these days reducing fat and calorie intake no longer has to mean reducing the flavour along with it.
There are plenty of healthy lunch ideas to be found in this collection, from savvy salads for lunches on the go to simple soups and low-fat snacks. Becca Pusey's Curried bulgur wheat salad is a cheap lunch recipe inspired by a month of vegan eating, while Bruno Loubet's easy Avocado salad recipe is enhanced with the zesty tang of lemon and orange. For a simple low calorie soup recipe try Adam Gray's Detox tomato soup, full of fiery flavour and packed with nutrients, and virtuous enough to justify a healthy snack or sweet treat afterwards – whip up a little of Victoria Glass' Beetroot hummus, or try Madeleine Shaw's Raw chocolate brownie recipe.
Andy Waters' healthy Baked fish recipe, served in a delicious tomato sauce, makes the perfect midweek dinner dish, while similarly cooking salmon, haddock and a host of other meaty fish using the en papillote method results in tender, flavourful fish without the need for much (or, indeed, any) oil or fats used in the cooking. Looking for low-carb recipes? Monica Shaw's Cauliflower rice recipe creates a delicious biryani from just vegetables and spices, while Vivek Singh's easy ceviche recipe combines scallop, tuna and salmon with a gloriously tangy dressing for a low fat, no carb dinner packed with flavour.
