Healthy Spring Recipes
Low Calorie, Seasonal Cooking Made Easy
Spring is in full swing and with it comes loads of amazing seasonal food and vegetables to take your mealtimes and snacks up a notch. Cooking with local, seasonal ingredients is not only delicious, but it also reduces the distance those ingredients need to travel. This not only means they are fresher and have a lower carbon footprint, but it also increases support for local producers and farmers. From quiche and cakes to pizzas and toasties, you can find our best healthy Spring recipes below, with something for both your sweet and savoury tooth.
Artichokes are a great source of fibre and are delicious in your lunchtime sandwich or pizza, like this one here. For this veggie pizza, you can either cook your artichokes fresh or buy pre-prepared.
Grilled, baked, sliced and added to a quiche - it doesn’t matter, we love asparagus and now is the perfect time to make the most of them. This quiche tastes great hot or cold and is a great veggie recipe to enjoy in the spring sun.
Easter is behind us but that doesn’t mean goodbye to carrot cake. Usually super calorific and heavy, we’ve put a Lo-Dough spin on this classic dessert and ditched the unnecessary calories while keeping this spring dessert recipe super tasty.
The mix of earthy and creamy, sharp flavours on this pizza works absolute wonders. Beetroots are also a great source of fibre and have loads of vitamins packed into few calories - the perfect vegetarian spring recipe.
A sweet, comforting slice of apple pie for just 120 calories? You read correctly. By swapping out the normal pastry for an Original Lo-Dough base, you not only slash the calories in this classic dessert, but also cut out the gluten and provide your body with a boost in fibre.
When you can’t quite decide what you want for lunch and don’t have a lot of time, toasties are the perfect idea to turn to. This oozy cheese and spinach toastie is quick and easy to make but is sure to leave you satisfied.
If you’re a meat lover, lamb is definitely best enjoyed in spring. As the weather is also getting warmer, it’s a great opportunity to get the barbecue fired up to get that delicious charred taste in your meals.
Beetroot, goats cheese and walnuts complement each other beautifully in salads - and on pizza, it’s no different. We have used Foraging Fox’s delicious beetroot ketchup for the base of this vegetarian pizza instead of tomato sauce.
