Celebrate Eat More Fruit and Veg Day on 21 May

As winter sets in and the cold weather takes hold, fruits and vegetables often lose their appeal.

However, Eat More Fruit and Veg Day on May 21 is the perfect opportunity to bring these nutritional powerhouses back into the spotlight.

With the right recipes, winter veggies can become the stars of your meals, enticing even the pickiest eaters to indulge in their benefits.

  • Roasted Carrots and Mushrooms – an eye candy side dish for a special dinner. What we love most about this combo is that the sugar content of the carrots is much reduced with the addition of roasted mushrooms making the total dish much lower in carbs. And the more you increase the mushroom ratio the more you reduce the carb content! Roasted carrots are really tasty alone, but delicious roasted mushrooms add a touch of elegance to regular roasted carrots. And if you’d like to take this dish up even another notch, add a sprinkle of thyme, the perfect seasoning for a carrot and mushroom combination!
  • AND Here we’ve got a super healthy and dreamy delicious combo that will take winter veggies to the top of your menu! Mushrooms and cauliflower are two of our favourite inclusions in a vegetable-based soup.Together they also make a quick and easy plant powered dinner or side dish. Roasted mushrooms are simply yummy served on a bed of garlic infused cauli rice and a combination of roasted cauliflower and roasted mushrooms is perfect over pan fried gnocchi! Super nourishing, easy to whip up and insanely addictive!
