I am often asked why I love my air fryer so much and I generally only use it for air fryer chips and roast potatoes but should use it more so I have been investigating other recipes using the air fryer so I can play around with them, adapt them and be more confident in using my air fryer for fun recipes from hash browns to popcorn chicken!

Planning for a healthy summer

If you want healthy food for a relaxing summer where you don’t put on the pounds I have some great summer recipes to help. Be sure to get out the BBQ and put rubs on meats, marinate tofu or get that charcoal in to ensure that you have a great time.

Whatever you do be sure to plan ahead because we all know that when the weather is nice no shops have BBQ foods in anymore and the whole of the supermarket is full of people with trolleys of bread rolls and beer.

A healthy summer means a little planning ahead to ensure you can stay on plan and still have tasty summer foods. That way you can always save calories or syns for favourites, mine are chocolate or Jaffa Cake gin!

If you hate meal planning then check out my summer meal plan or for cooler days my late summer/autumn plan.

An air fryer is a pretty useful small appliance, have you seen my article of 5 small appliances everyone needs in their kitchen?
