Skin Friendly Zucchini 'Pasta' With Creamy Avocado Basil Pesto

Another passion and hobby of mine is cooking! I've been plant based for nearly 5 years and during this time it's opened my mind to exploring and experimenting with many different foods, spices and herbs.

Cooking and baking for me is very therapeutic and soothing. I love turning a traditional 'meat' dish into a more vibrant, healthy and nutritious meal while making sure it's bursting with flavour and colour, because, as I say to many of my clients, if your plate looks like the rainbow, your skin is going to thank you.

See below my favourite all year round dishes that can be whipped up in 15 minutes. I also made roasted caramelised maple carrots as a side dish which you'll find the recipe to below.
