If fibre is what you’re looking for, you won’t want to miss out on these delicious recipes.
Whole Wheat Flaxseed Bread
Many of the healthy-sounding multi-grain and wheat breads on the shelves actually contain only a tiny proportion of whole grain. An enjoyable way to make sure you’re getting at least 50 percent whole wheat flour in a loaf is to make your own.
Avocado Banana Bread
A perfect breakfast on the go or great addition to your lunch box, this nutrient-filled banana bread, made with wholesome whole wheat, high-fibre avocados and potassium-rich bananas, is a satisfying treat you can feel good about feeding the whole family.
Carrots replace the usual cabbage in this recipe to create a simple but delicious year-round salad. It’s also quick and easy to make!
Corn and Zucchini Salad
From Eva Longoria, author of Eva’s Kitchen: I love learning new things every time I eat a dish or step into a kitchen or take a cooking class. I was thrilled to discover Maite Gomez-Rejón’s program in Los Angeles called ArtBites, which combines art history and the culinary arts in classes that begin with viewing a collection at a local museum and end in the kitchen. I took a class called “Dining in the Aztec Empire,” in which Maite taught us modern ways to use ingredients that would have been used in what is now central Mexico during the fourteenth through sixteenth centuries. I learned this recipe, which uses the ancient ingredients corn and squash, in that wonderful class.
