On most evening, I like making quick and simple recipes, like these healthy tuna patties. All you need to do is chop a few ingredients, mix everything in one bowl, shape into patties and shallow fry for a few minutes and you’ll have a tasty and satisfying meal. You can eat these tuna patties on their own with a side salad and sweet potato fried, or you can turn it into a burger with layers of tomato, lettuce, a slice of cheese and a drizzle of Sriracha…perfect!
If you’ve never tried, or even heard of chia pudding then you’re in for a treat! Some may say that chia seeds have been over-hyped the past year or so, which may be true but with good reasons.
I know quite a few people who wish they could have cake all day everyday, including myself. I must admit it is nice knowing I’m not the only one out there with a cake obsession. But let’s face it, this is a healthy food blog and I am trying to promote a healthier lifestyle so cake for breakfast is out of the question, but no one said anything about not eating cake flavoured oatmeal!
There are so many dairy free milk alternatives out there nowadays and although I’m not vegan and I do consume dairy, I still like to play around with dairy free milk alternatives like almond milk which I use in a lot of my recipes.
Since the weather is fast becoming colder here in the UK, I’m slowly turning away from my beloved overnight oats and towards more warm and comforting breakfasts. Oatmeal/porridge is always a good breakfast option for those cold, gloomy mornings. But what if you don’t even have time to prepare that?
heesy crackers…and vegan? How could that possibly be? Well the combination of the ingredients for these crackers give it a lovely cheesy flavour. That accompanied with a few aromatic herbs and spices make these crackers perfect to eat with hummus, spreads or just simply by themselves!
If you have never come across the words ‘nutritional yeast’ then I can imagine hearing it for the first time will be somewhat off putting. The word ‘yeast’ isn’t exactly associated with delicious food. Even I was hesitant to try it initially, but I soon changed my mind when looking it up and finding its flavour described as ‘cheesy’ and ‘nutty’.
It’s no secret that I’m a massive fan of overnight oats. It’s just so convenient, tasty and filling. Whenever someone says to me “I don’t have time for breakfast” or “I’m too rushed to make a healthy breakfast” I always advise them to make overnight oats.
Applesauce is a healthy, low calorie and low fat baking substitute for oil, butter and eggs. It’s also a great option for vegan baking. It works better for some recipes than others and you may need to adjust baking time when using applesauce.
These protein bars take no time to make and only require 4 ingredients, a bowl and a spoon! They’re also gluten free, high in protein and low in carbs, great to have in the fridge for when you need a quick snack.
