Our recipes explained
EVERY SINGLE RECIPE is tested by our expert recipe consultant Phil Mundy to make sure it works – and tastes great.
RECIPES ARE ANALYSED by our nutrition consultant Juliette Kellow. Nutrition information is calculated accurately using McCance and Widdowson’s The Composition of Foods, Sixth Edition – the UK’s standard nutrition database – but may vary slightly depending on the ingredients used.
DIABETES FRIENDLY In line with information from Diabetes UK, we encourage people with diabetes to enjoy a variety of foods and aim for a diet that is low in fat, sugar and salt and includes plenty of fruit and vegetables. Our nutritional information helps people with diabetes to make informed choices and indulge in occasional treats, so none of our recipes is off limits.
WE USE STANDARD UK measurements, where 1tbsp is 15ml and 1tsp is 5ml.
OUR VEGETARIAN RECIPES often include cheese. Some of these may contain animal rennet, so check the label and use a vegetarian substitute if you prefer.
WHERE WE USE a ‘gluten free’ or ‘dairy free’ symbol we recommend you check the ingredients list of any manufactured products you use – even if you use them regularly as manufacturers may change their recipes.
IN ADDITION TO BEING CODED with symbols, all recipes include nutritional information per serving for:
