Celebrity Family Recipes

COOKING for the family can be a challenge.

If trying to keep dinner time varied, healthy and filling leaves you reaching for the ready-meals, this new stress-busting celebrity recipe e-book might make you think again.

Salford-based children's cancer research charity, KidsCan, and its patron, scientist, author and TV expert, Jeannette Jackson, has teamed up with a team of celebrities to develop StarBites – revamped alternatives to traditional recipes that will help boost energy, reduce fatigue and support restful sleep in kids and adults alike. Oh and they taste great too.

Local celebrities featured in the e-book include Catherine Tyldesley, Nick Grimshaw and Lisa Riley.

Jeannette said: “There can be nothing more stressful in life than finding out your child has cancer and the first thing to drop off your priority list is eating well. With the help of our ten celebrities we’ve compiled StarBites, which provides tasty, healthy meals that work to reduce stress levels.”

StarBites Recipes:

Lisa Riley RecipeHenry Holland – Spaghetti Bolognese

Andrea McLean – My Mum’s Fix Everything Soup

Lisa Riley – Tofu Thai Green Curry

Glynis Barber – Prawn Stir Fry

Emma Forbes – Fridge Salad

Ross King – Sausage, Mash And Beans

Catherine Tyldesley – Monkfish in Parma Ham and Asparagus

Kolo Toure – Salmon Risotto with Lemon and Lime Drizzle

Nick Grimshaw – Beef Bourguignon

Christopher Biggins – Beef Wellington

Jeannette’s traditional meal adaptations included adding kombu (a type of seaweed) to Andre McLean’s soup to increase iron intake and produce boosts of energy. Jeanette also incorporated brown rice to Glynis Barber’s prawn stir fry, which helps the body to manufacture a neurotransmitter called GABA, enabling it to ‘mop up’ cortisol, a hormone released in the body when under stress.

To find out more healthy twists on traditional meals, the StarBites e-book is available to download from jeannettejackson.com/starbites, priced at just £1 with all proceeds going to KidsCan.
