Jennifer along with her chefs and nutritional experts have spent time creating some loved dishes here at Balance Box. Here are some below that you can try yourself at home.

Rhubarb and banana crumble in a dish all cooked and ready to eat.

Rhubarb and Banana Crumble

This is one of the easiest ways of cooking fish. En papillote translates as ‘in parchment’  By enclosing your ingredients in a parchment pouch moisture is trapped within resulting in tender, juicy flesh that is part steamed, part-baked. The fragrant wine and herbs infuse the fish with wonderful flavours. It’s a fantastic healthy way to cook as very little oil is required.

I love fruit crumble, but often find it quite heavy and stodgy.  So I started playing around with the idea of a granola-esque topping, and came up with this. It’s got a wonderful bite and all the flavour and comfort of traditional a crumble.
