1. Chia Lemon Jelly

This is from Gluten-Free, Grain-Free author Tania Hubbard. This drink helps revitalise the body and senses on a hot day, and is a super-hydrating, super-yummy drink to treat yourself to in winter, when your skin is feeling dry from cold air and indoor heating.

4. Spicy Kale Chips

Kale is high in magnesium, calcium and antioxidants, contains an excellent supply of lutein (thought to help prevent macular degeneration) and is packed with iron. You can simply roast kale chips in salt and oil, but this recipe from The Raw Food Kitchen adds extra zing! You can store the chips in zip lock bags to take with you for a healthy snack during the day.

8. Garden Breakfast Wrap

If you like a high-protein, substantial brekkie to get your day off to a good start, these wraps are tasty, light and packed with protein. If you’re gluten-intolerant, swap the flour tortilla for a gluten-free variety, or try nori seaweed sheets for something different. Find the recipe here at Organic Gardening.
