Here is a recipe for chicken wraps with fresh veggies, avocado and herbs I created to make for dinner on Wednesday 🕊🌸 the recipe has quite a lot of fresh fruits and veggies with a lot of nutrients, including carrots, courgette, tomatoes, cabbage, avocado and white onion, and is also quite quick to prepare as just the chicken needs to be cooked. In case you are hoping for the recipe to be plant based, you could include tofu or a different kind of plant protein, and you could also change the mozzarella cheese for a plant based cheese if you can 🌸 you could also include different kinds of fresh veggies and herbs, including lettuce, red onion, baby spinach, kale or parsley if you would like to.
Here is a recipe for an almond and banana smoothie 🌸 the recipe is from the 100 Best Health Foods book, and has just a couple of ingredients, including almonds, plant based milk, bananas, natural vanilla and cinnamon, which you could hopefully find at your local shop. The smoothie is quite quick to make and has a light, creamy and nourishing flavour with the almonds, plant based milk and bananas. The almonds in the recipe from the almonds and plant based milk (in case you use almond milk) are very high in vitamin E, and the smoothie is also quite filling with the almonds and banana.
Here is a second recipe for a healthy smoothie, made with raspberries and blueberries 🕊🌸 I just made the smoothie on Sunday, and added a couple of ingredients we had at home I enjoy a lot and are quite healthy. The smoothie recipe is quite simple and easy to make and you could hopefully find the ingredients for the smoothie in your garden or at your local shop too. The ingredients included in the smoothie include banana, raspberries, blueberries, almond milk, Greek yogurt, ground almonds and chia seeds. I enjoy making the smoothie both in the morning for breakfast, or for morning or afternoon tea as it is quite healthy and filling with the banana and the Greek yogurt.

Here are a couple of recipes with honey, found in the healthy foods and superfoods book 100 Best Health Foods. I have always loved honey on its own or in a warm lemon, honey and ginger drink, and honey is also one of my favourite ingredients to include in baking or cooking recipes. When I was little I enjoyed watching the bees and honey bees in the garden, and was always curious about where the bees would go after gathering pollen from the flowers, and how the honey was made 🌸
I bought a copy of a book called 100 Best Health Foods from a book shop a couple of years ago in about 2012 or 2013 when I was studying at uni. I was at a book shop one day and remember thinking the book cover looked so beautiful with the photos of the broccoli, raspberries and almonds, and the book is full of helpful nutritional information about healthy foods and superfoods, with accompanying recipes to try.
