Fabulous Foodie Fridays #68

For something a little bit different in this weeks Fabulous Foodie Fridays party, I thought I’d share my favourite light, fresh and healthy spring recipes from last weeks links (and boy oh boy there were lots to choose from!). It seems like we’re all going on a bit of health kick now that the weather is warming up. So here’s 5 of my fave spring inspired recipes…

These Roasted Sweet Potato, Lentil & Poached Egg Bowls with Avocado & Lime Dressing from Thoroughly Nourished Life are my ideal dinner! Light, easy and really, really yummy.


Speaking of delicious dinners, I made this Poached Chicken, Avocado, Broccoli & Brown Rice Salad from Boiled Eggs and Soldiers during the week and it was SO GOOD!!

I’m going to have to take a little break from my usual breakfasts and try this Spinach & Avocado Lassi from Fresh Home Cook. There’s nothing like a green smoothie to kickstart your day.

I love how quick and easy this Angel Hair Pasta with Spinach, Feta & Sun-dried Tomatoes from Green Gourmet Giraffe is. Perfect for a midweek dinner in a hurry.

Finally, these Skinny Raspberry Cheesecake Slices from Dancing Through Sunday are totally my kind of food!!!! Sweet, delicious and only a little bit naughty. Love it!
