    1 week ago by brownpapernutrition All about the fruit in salads at the moment, adds delishhhhh flavour plus quality carbohydrate sources, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, fibre - all the good stuff! This is one of my fave chickpea salads made with the obvious ingredient - chickpeas - and crunchy sprouts, celery, herbs and a scrumptious tahini yoghurt dressing.

Aromatic red pepper, bean and egg curry

So imma spicing up the menu with this scrumptious aromatic curry. Yummmmmm!!! Veggie curry is a fab way to up the ante on nutrition throughout the week, adding valuable nutrients from culinary spices (turmeric, ginger, chilli) to fire up your immune and circulatory system, making you warm for the winter, and keeping hunger at bay with a vitamin, mineral and protein rich egg.

Takes no time to put together either – gluten, dairy, sugar free, vegetarian and paleo.

1 white (170g) onion, peeled and finely diced
