Summer is a time when we overhaul our eating habits and embrace everything natural, for a time at least… If you’re currently on a health kick, we thoroughly recommend trying some of our favourite healthy summer recipes below. They embrace having a little of what you love and using organic, natural produce where possible. That’s good in our books.
Pasta is one of the things I crave the most when I’m eating healthily, but this recipe lets you enjoy a little of what you love along with a whole host of goodness. A tumble of angel hair pasta, prawns, lemon and parmesan gives you all of the flavour with a fraction of the calories.
