There's nothing quite like a McDonald's

Sometimes there is nothing just quite like a McDonald’s. The secret is knowing which burger will do the most damage – and which will do the least. We are here to tell you a few facts and figures to help you make that decision a good one.

Lemon ricotta cake

Any seasonal berries complement this mouthwatering creamy dessert. Try juicy strawberries or redcurrants and serve with a little low fat fromage frais on the side.

Lamb meatballs with fruity couscous

Couscous is a traditional North African dish that has become popular in many countries. It is a versatile ingredient and can be used in anything, from a light salad to a hearty family recipe.

Spiced apple muffins

Apples give a delicious flavour to these low fat Christmas muffins.

Christmas pudding - with half the fat!

No Christmas meal is complete without a traditional plum pudding. But this year, you don’t have to sacrifice your Christmas pud if you don’t want to pile on the pounds. This scrumptious version is full of flavour and has less than half the fat of a traditional recipe.

Sausage casserole with greens and beans

Tinned beans are a great staple to have in your kitchen. They are a fantastic alternative carbohydrate source to use in place of potatoes and pastas and work exceptionally well in soups and casseroles, as this easy and delicious sausage casserole shows.

Chickpea & lentil curry

This recipe originated when I had a lump of ginger to use up and decided to combine it with lentils, onions, chickpeas and spices. It is a fantastic curry, easy to make, satisfying and tasty, perfect for winter evenings and freezes excellently.

Pesto chicken with roasted Mediterranean vegetables

A really simple dish to make and although the cook time is 45 minutes, that’s mostly in the oven, so this dish cooks itself as you spend your time doing more enjoyable things. If you prefer you can replace the chicken with white fish for an equally delicious and healthy meal for all the family.

Turkey tikka masala

Tantalising flavours make this healthy tikka masala a winner on all levels.
