    • Hairy Bikers' Thai chicken and coconut curry

      Hairy Bikers' Thai chicken and coconut curry

      Hairy Bikers' Thai chicken and coconut curry recipe is the perfect quick and easy dinner from The Hairy Bikers' show, The Hairy Dieters. This delicious recipe takes a classic dish and reduces the calories to turn it into a healthy family meal. Serving 4 people, each portion of this delicious curry works out at only 283 calories per serving without rice. If you'd like to serve this curry with rice, we'd recommend jasmine rice or basmati rice. Aim to cook no more than 50g per person, so 200g in all. Press the freshly boiled rice into a 200ml metal pudding basin mould that you’ve oiled lightly and lined with cling film, then turn out into the bowls before adding the hot curry. You only need 1 basin or mould as you can reuse it for all the servings

    • Raw apple doughnuts

      Apple doughnuts are the latest healthy food trend to hit social media and we’re fully on board. You’ve probably seen them all over Pinterest and Instagram, but you won’t believe how easy and fun it is to make them at home. Made with just raw apple slices and coloured cream cheese or yoghurt, they’re a great way to get the kids eating more fruit and increase their five-a-day in a fun way. This fruity snack is also a much more nutritious alternatives to normal doughnuts without the sugar crash, and we promise they’ll love them just as much. The natural sugars in the apples are a great source of energy for little ones, so it’s a good option for a healthy breakfast or a delicious snack in between meals. With only four ingredients, you can make these delicious apples doughnuts in just 5 minutes, and the best part is that because it’s such a simple and easy process, the whole family can get involved. Let the kids make the holes on their apple slices, and then watch them get creative with their favourite toppings. We love yoghurt and granola for breakfast time and cream cheese with a dash of sprinkles for a yummy afternoon snack, but you can use anything you’d like to top your apple doughnuts – just combine a creamy spread with a crunchy topping on top of an apple slice and you're good to go. For a more indulgent version, why not cover the apple doughnuts with nut butter and sprinkle with chocolate chips?

      FODMAP passion fruit cupcakes

      Fancy a sweet treat but on the FODMAP diet? There's no need to give up cake thanks to cook book author Emma Hatcher, who specialises in FODMAP-friendly recipes. These passion fruit cupcakes will give tea time that sweet fix, without it having to contain any FODMAP foods. Emma says: 'These cupcakes are light and delicate with a charming, tropical tang. Every few bites you get a little crunch from the passion fruit pulp, and when topped with the rich whipped coconut cream icing you've got a stunning flavour and texture combination, if I do say so myself. Don't skip chilling the coconut milk. It is this process that allows the coconut fat to separate out and solidify, giving you creamier, thicker icing at the end.'

    • Dinosaur salad

      We all know getting little ones to eat lots of fruits and veggies can be a bit of struggle sometimes (for some reason chips always look more appealing!) but with this recipe for a fun and easy dinosaur salad you’ll have the kids munching through their 5-a-day in no time at all. This is just one example of fun ways to get children interested in a healthy plate of food, but the general principle can be applied to almost anything – faces on pizzas, animals made out of fruit salad, sandwiches cut into shapes – anything you can do to make their plate more appealing is a winner. If you’re feeling particularly patient you could get little ones to build their own dinos. Simply lay out all the ingredients cut up into shapes and let them go wild, we bet you get some inventive species!
