You need to try these spicy roasted Chickpeas with Asparagus – hot, crunchy, full of texture and with the familiar flavours of hummus, whilst also being great for your gut health. Delicious! You can’t beat pan fried Sea Bass for flavour and lightness, without being too fishy, and some butter chive New Potatoes is always a solid combo. And to cut through those flavours with some sweet sharpness, shredded picked Beetroot is a superfood winner in my books. All in, a great meal that is light, fresh and sings wholesome healthiness. 😋

For a smaller portion, drop to 1x Sea Bass Fillet, 200g of New Potatoes and 5g of Butter. This would save you 297 calories, without compromising on the flavours or nutritional goodness whatsoever. You could dial back the Chickpeas too if you like, as they count for 154 kcals.

  • Paprika helps with indigestion, cardiovascular health, and circulation; is antibacterial and anti-inflammatory; and contains vitamins A, E, K, and C. Antioxidants include Vitamin A, Lutein and Zeaxanthin. However, some people do not process peppers that well – so good to carefully monitor gut response.
  • Coriander is known all over the world for its medicinal properties. It is a great source of potassium, iron, vitamins A, K, and C, folic acid, magnesium, and calcium. Coriander Seeds have antiseptic properties, can help regulate blood sugar levels and have antioxidant properties and dietary fiber to support better digestion.
  • Grass-Fed Butter is a great source of healthy-fats that promote optimal health and hormone production. Furthermore, Butter contains only trace amounts of lactose.
  • White Potatoes are an excellent source for vitamins C and B6, a good source for fibre and manganese, and have more potassium than bananas. However, Because potatoes maintain one of the highest glycemic index values of any food, they cause blood sugar levels to rapidly rise which in turn cause our blood insulin concentrations to increase. Then of course you get the issues that arise when deep fried in unhealthy oils.
