What better way to head into Spring than with some lip-smacking dinner ideas to woo your guests?


We’ve put together a week’s worth of light dinner recipes to give you a taste of just how delicious healthy eating can be.

Each recipe has been carefully selected for its bursts of flavour and short preparation time. We wouldn’t expect you to work out for more than 20 minutes, and you shouldn’t have to be cooking for than 20 minutes either.

We’ve also partnered with SA’s favourite dinner-kit service, UCOOK, to gift 3 lucky couples with fresh ingredients valued at R690 each! You’ll get to choose your favourite recipes from 3 yummy categories; Easy Peasy, Health Nut and Vegetarian.

Not only does UCOOK deliver high-quality organic ingredients, but all pre-portioned boxes are prepared using locally sourced produce, provided by small-batch farmers.

Answer the question at the end of this post for the chance to win.
