The British chef's favourite flavours include fresh herbs like coriander, mint and basil, and spices such as chili, saffron and paprika, meaning the meals are light on sauces but uncompromising on taste.

Fat free natural yogurt and cottage cheese are also used to keep the balanced recipes low in fat.

TV chef and food campaigner Jamie Oliver has given his support to leading conservation organisation WWF by donating a recipe for this year's Earth Hour. Jamie has chosen this tantalising modern Greek salad with spinach, chickpea and feta parcels dish, which serves four people and contains only 516 calories per person.

Jamie said "I have loads of respect for what the guys at WWF are doing. Our eating habits need to change, not just for the sake of our health, but for the environment too.

We can all make simple changes to help, like always buying as much local produce as possible, choosing higher-welfare meat, and even trying to have a couple of meat-free days a week. Together we can make a massive difference. I'm on the journey of trying to evolve things myself too and I hope you can come with me, and thanks to organisations like WWF, when you become aware of issues, it's hard to ignore them."
