What Kelly says

Kelly's favourite recipe

"Skinny Bacon Carbonara. Almonds, lemon, garlic…this recipe is full of nutritious and tasty ingredients. I love this dish because it’s so easy to make in just 15 minutes and you can still have a delicious tasting pasta dish."

If you want to try a new pasta dish with the kids, give this creamy but healthy Trout Pasta a try. It’s ready in less than 20 minutes and feeds four for less than £6:

Kelly's top tips

"Do your main food shop online.  I prefer to do online shopping as I know exactly what my total bill is at the end of the food shop and it prevents me from impulse buying. When you shop online, you’re not as tempted to buy chocolate and biscuits that are on offer."

"Instead of giving my daughter crisps or other unhealthy savoury snacks, I like to give her chickpeas, baked with a blend of spices."
