Hummus is something that I eat every single day without fail! I eat it on the side of main meals with salads and cooked vegetables, and it’s also one of my go-to snacks. I like to have some peeled chopped carrots in the fridge so when I’m feeling peckish, all I have to do is open the fridge, take out the hummus and carrots and devour! I also like to have it with rice cakes when I run out of carrot sticks and I’m too lazy to peel more!
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!
I absolutely adore this recipe! This bread is so moist, sweet and really good for you! Baking is my passion, I can easily live on baked goods (breads, cakes, cookies…you name it!), but they have to be healthy, of course! Otherwise the guilt would totally take over, not to mention the bloating and mood swings that follow eating sugary, fatty goods!
This recipe is as easy as they get! You literally only need 3 main ingredients and then you can add whatever else you like. Chia seeds have very quickly become one of my pantry staples that I can’t live without! I’ve been using them particularly in baking as a substitute for eggs, especially when I’m looking for something denser and less spongy. I think chia eggs work so much better than flax eggs, does anyone else think that?
Quest Bar Apple Pop Tart Recipe After making my Quest Bar Berry Tart last week, a few of you asked me to make another recipe using a quest bar. I had a few recipe ideas in mind but then remembered a recipe I had seen on the Quest nutrition YouTube channel of a ‘healthified’ pop tart and loved the idea, …
I tried my first quest bar a year ago instantly fell in love with them! They were all over social media and I was so eager to try them, but they were no where to be found here in the UK! Fast forward a year later and now you can find them in places like Holland and Barrett, Amazon and ebay!
Two raw, soft and sweet heart shaped cookies with a layer of tangy raspberry chia jam sandwiched in between them – The perfect healthy sweet treat to make for that special someone whether it’s for valentine’s day, an anniversary, or just as cute gesture of love and appreciation.
Guacamole goes with everything: salads, vegetables, meat, in sandwiches…I make so many different variations all the time depending on what ingredients I have, but mostly how lazy I’m feeling! Usually, I’ll scoop a ripe avocado onto a plate, mash it with a fork, add lots of fresh lemon juice and a sprinkle of pepper and call it ‘Guacamole’. It tastes so good and fresh simply like that, but if you’re having Mexican food (say Fajitas!) then you have to do it properly.
I’ve been on a massive peanut butter kick the last few days when usually I’m more of a Tahini girl. I go through these phases where I crave a specific food and want to eat it everyday and right now, peanut butter is that food! I’ve been eating it straight out of the jar with a spoon.
Do you ever get a sudden craving for a crunchy and salty snack? I do, especially when I’m watching a movie. I can’t watch a movie without snacks! If it’s not freshly made popcorn, I use this recipe to make healthy roasted chickpeas!
