Nutritious Dishes for Ladies who are carrying’ Precious Cargo’ (new series) - Day 83 of 100 Food Stories.
This week it is all about Nutritious Dishes for Ladies who are carrying’ Precious Cargo’.
I will be doing dishes that are high in iron, folic acid and essential nutrients to make sure that bouncing bunnies arrive full of 'Joie de vivre’.
Of course the food is not just for these beautiful ladies, it is nutritious food for everyone - a diet full of lean protein, oily fish, as well as plant sources including dried fruit, green leafy vegetables and pulses.
Today I am kicking off with a powerhouse of wellness in Smoked Mackerel & Apple Fish Cake in an Oatmeal Crumb on a Beetroot & Orange Salad.
Normally we just put this oily fish on a salad and it can be quiet boring. A pkt in the fridge can transform a tasty, nutritious lunch for you.
