Natasha wears the Tilia Tee
The Queen of Green, Natasha Corrett started Honestly Healthy as a meal delivery service, before expanding to supper clubs, four cookbooks, an app and a fitness and nutrition plan Green and Lean.
A self-taught vegetarian chef, Natasha introduced the concept of ‘alkaline eating’ to the UK after transforming her own diet (this includes no processed food, meat, refined sugars, wheat, gluten or dairy). Though don’t stop reading there, Natasha is on a serious mission to prove healthy doesn’t have to be boring. Now renowned for creating delicious, vegetarian meals that look and taste incredible, Honestly Healthy has a number of famous glowing fans including Elle Macpherson and Victoria Beckham. To help with recipe inspiration this January, Natasha has shared her go-to breakfast and lunch recipes to keep you green and lean.
Breakfast: Berry Bircher Muesli
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
100ml rice milk
25ml hot water
75g blackberries or blueberries
3 tbsp water
Optional: 1 tbsp of chia seeds
Mix together the oats, cinnamon, rice milk, hot water in a bowl.
Chop the dates and add to the oat mixture. Leave for at least 3 hours – I think it's best left over night and you can then forget about it!
Make a berry coulis by adding the berries into a pan with 3 tbsp water and simmer for 2-3 minutes.
Mix half of the berry coulis through the muesli and drizzle the rest on top. Garnish with some fresh berries when ready to eat.
Lunch: Alkalising Green Soup
1 clove garlic
1 tsp cumin
1 tbsp bouillon powder
1 litre of water
1 tbsp organic rapeseed oil
1 tsp onion seeds
1 clove garlic
1 tbsp olive oil
Chop the garlic, ginger and courgettes roughly. Then add the rapeseed oil into a sauce pan and sauté with the garlic, ginger and cumin for 1-2 minutes.
Add the courgettes, water and bouillon powder and bring to the boil.
Once boiling add the apple and dill and cook for about 4 minutes until the courgettes are becoming transparent. Take off the heat and blend until desired consistency.
To make the garnish sauté the sliced garlic, onion seeds, dill and chopped apple in olive oil until warmed through. Place over the top of the soup and serve.
Three burning questions
Describe your morning routine?
I'm a firm believer that your morning routine can either make you or break you for the rest of the day! I don't have long in the mornings, but I make sure I spend the time wisely to set me up properly. I stay in bed for a few minutes after my alarm to cuddle with my dog, Lottie. Then I always have a hearty breakfast - it's my favourite meal of the day! I've usually prepped this the night before to save time and it'll be a Berry Bircher Muesli or my Sweet Potato Porridge.
Your favourite workout and why?
By far my favourite way to work out is HIIT training! I do the 30 minute HIIT circuits from my Green and Lean Plan three to four days a week, which double as my resistance training to keep me strong. I also walk Lottie every day when I'm in the country which gets me moving. Walking out in nature is the best form of movement meditation, it really refreshes my mind after being inside all day.
Describe yourself in three words?
Passionate. Loyal. Chocoholic!
