Blueberry Lemon Breakfast Bars These breakfast bars are perfect to have in the fridge for super busy weeks. You know, for those days when you have no time in the morning for a sit down breakfast or even enough time to prepare anything to take with you. Packed with antioxidants from the blueberries as well as fibre and slow releasing …
Maple Pancakes – Vegan & Gluten-free I’ve made a few variations of a ‘basic’ pancakes recipe before (like my strawberry choc chip pancakes and English pancakes), but this recipe by far is the easiest! Pancakes shouldn’t be complicated and they definitely don’t need loads of ingredients and additions to make them taste good! With pancake day around the corner, …
Beans and lentils don’t get the credit they deserve. Many avoid them because they have a bad reputation of causing digestive discomfort, but just like with any food, a few people can’t tolerate them but most can! If you’re a vegetarian or a vegan…
Baking is my therapy. Whenever I’m feeling stressed or agitated, I always find that baking makes me feel better. The whole process of sifting, measuring, mixing, then knowing I’ll have something yummy to enjoy at the end of it. It also leaves the house smelling so homely and inviting 🙂 my house definitely smelt good when making these Chai Spiced oat bars.
Autumn is here and it’s time to bring out the festive spices. Cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, ginger and of course not forgetting my favourite spice of all…cardamom!!
Sometimes all you need to lift your mood and energy is a nice, cold and refreshing smoothie! And what’s more refreshing than a tropical mango banana and coconut smoothie?Even the colour is bright and cheerful! Naturally sweet from the mango and banana with a hint of coconut.

Smoothies are one of the easiest ways to get some fruit and veg into your daily diet. It’s also one of the easiest ways to create a balanced meal with sufficient amounts of carbohydrates, proteins and fats!
If you’re familiar with the concept of overnight oats, buckwheat porridge is similar but with a slight twist. Buckwheat is one of those ingredients that not may people are familiar with, outside the health community of course! You can now easily get hold of buckwheat as it’s available in most supermarkets and online. I’ve also noticed more and more brands adding it to their granola, muesli and snack bars.
I filmed a short video showing you how to make healthy porridge – all you need is oats, some form of liquid and a pan! Typically when I make porridge I would add some cinnamon to flavour, a mashed banana, some dried fruit (dates and raisins are my favourote!) for some natural sweetness and some nuts, seeds or nut butter for some healthy fats and a bit of crunch. To top it off, i like to add some fresh fruit, berries and whatever else I fancy on that particular day.
