It's my weakness). Anywho, I thought it was time to create something different for you guys so I created this delicious red rice, avocado, and haloumi salad. I'm not completely against dairy, some people tolerate it well, others don't, it really comes down to the individual. I personally do not tolerate it well which is why I never post any recipes containing dairy. I took dairy out of my diet 10+ years ago, but on the odd occasion, I can enjoy small amounts of it.

Using thinly sliced zucchini is the most fabulous way to increase vegetables into yours and your children's diet. They are of course gluten free, wheat free, fresh and incredibly nutritious.

This recipe is bursting with beneficial nutrients and is easy and quick to make. It's also a great recipe to make ahead of time, you can make the chicken and broccoli mixture up in advance and store it in the fridge for 2-3 days until you are ready to use it. It's also gluten and dairy free. Depending on your appetite you could get between 2-4 meals out of this recipe.

Salmon Quinoa SushiThese sushi rolls really have it all, and taste incredible! Quinoa is a nourishing alternative to white rice and is a good source of protein, fiber, and minerals. The salmon is high in omega 3's and the avocado is full of delicious good fats.

These are great for a light lunch or dinner, and if you double up on the quantities you can pop some away and enjoy them for lunch the following day.
