Golden Smoothie & Chia Pudding Parfait

Golden Smoothie & Chia Pudding Parfait If you've seen my golden turmeric milk post, you'll know how much I love turmeric and everything it has to offer. It's an ingredient I try to incorporate in my daily diet as a natural anti-inflammatory agent to help keep my eczema, IBS and inflammation at bay.  So many of you loved the golden turmeric milk so much that I thought it would be appropriate for me to show you another easy way to incorporate this amazing ingredient into your diet. Another thing that I love just as much as turmeric is pre-prepared breakfasts. That's meals that you prepare the night before to take the stress out of breakfast time the following morning. I'm one of [...]

Organic Chocolate Cherry Smoothie Bowl

Organic Chocolate Cherry Smoothie Bowl More and more people are choosing to buy organic produce. Whether that be to avoid pesticides, for environmental reasons or for health reasons, there is no doubt that the UK’s appetite for organic food is growing. You can see it in the ever growing organic section in supermarkets and organic drinks and breakfasts/snacks offered in some cafes. Organic food is best, no doubt about it. Here are a few reasons why: Organic food is good for you and in a lot of cases tastier and more delicious too! They have fewer pesticides and in some cases more nutrients. Choosing organic is better for the animals. Happy animals with high standards of animal welfare and no routine use of antibiotics. [...]

Peanut Butter Brownies Vegan, Gluten-free & Refined Sugar-free

Peanut Butter Brownies Vegan, Gluten-free & Refined Sugar-free Since my cookie dough brownies were such a hit, I thought I would create another brownie recipe using black beans, but this time flavoured with peanut butter. Because we all know chocolate and peanut butter make the most amazing flavour combination :D I also thought we could all do with a bit of comfort seeing that the British weather has skipped summer all together as it's beginning to feel more and more like autumn! It's been throwing it down with rain, windy and the temperature is falling. A good excuse to cosy up on the sofa with a blanket, a cup of tea and a delicious slice of these peanut butter brownies.  Just like the [...]

Vegan Lentil Tacos

Vegan Lentil Tacos Lentils are something I could never imagine living without! They're such a nutritionally dense food and especially important to include in a diet that don't include many animal products like mine.  High in folate, iron, potassium, zinc, manganese, B1, B5 as well as protein, you can see why I would recommend including in anyone's diet. They're also super high in fibre aiding digestion and helping nourish the friendly bacteria in the gut.  Lentils and beans have an exceptionally low glycemic index meaning eating them won't give you a huge blood sugar spike compared to when consuming other foods containing the same amount of carbs such as bread, pasta and rice. Consuming beans and pulses like lentils is associated with a lower [...]

Moringa Lime Chocolate Tarts

Moringa Lime Chocolate Tarts Now that the weather is finally starting to warm up it seems fitting to focus on chilled sweet treats. Expect lots of ice creams, lollies, refreshing drinks and raw desserts in the next coming weeks. Treats like these decadent Moringa lime chocolate tarts!  The lovely Jacquelyn from FERA kindly sent me some of their Moringa powder to create some nutritionally dense desserts. I loved finding out about her story and the reasons behind starting her business. She suffered with chronic health issues, which she was able to overcome naturally by changing her diet and adopting a more holistic lifestyle. Her journey is something I can relate to as a fellow chronic disease sufferer. I always find such [...]

A Full Day of Healthy Eating (Vegan & Gluten-Free)

A Full Day of Healthy Eating (Vegan & Gluten-Free) A few of you have asked me to shoot a 'what I eat in a day' style video and I really liked that idea. So I decided to film a full day of healthy recipes - breakfast, lunch and dinner and finish it off with some snack/dessert suggestions.  I really enjoy watching these kind of videos as they give me new ideas and inspire me to try something different. I wanted to share recipes that are quick and easy to make and are also healthy and delicious. This way you can enjoy nourishing food without feeling like you're missing out or feeling like you're on a 'diet'. As soon as you think [...]

Raw Salted Caramel Brownies

Raw Salted Caramel Brownies A treat to satisfy your chocolate cravings without any processed sugar, processed oils or any other nasty added ingredients.  I'm a huge fan of energy/bliss balls - basically any snack made out of dates and nuts. They make a great snack because they're high in fibre, good fats and they're sweet without the need to add any kind of processed refined sugars. Nothing beats whole dates as a form of sweetener, not even the sugar-free varieties, which we are yet to find out their long-term effects as they're relatively new to our diets.  Instead of blending dates and nuts and shaping them into balls, I added in some cocoa powder into the mix and pressed the mixture into [...]

Vegan Tofu ‘Chicken’ Nuggets

Vegan Tofu 'Chicken' Nuggets I was only exposed to chicken nuggets when I moved to the UK and as you can imagine, I absolutely fell in love with them! Crispy on the outside, soft on the inside and full of flavour. You can easily understand why every kid in the country is obsessed with them!  As delicious as they are, chicken nuggets aren't exactly known for their nutrition content. Unless homemade, they're heavily processed with lots of other unwanted added ingredients. Not only is my version lower in fat, it's also high in iron, calcium, magnesium, selenium, zinc and omega-3, all of which can be lacking in a not so well planned plant-based diet. Tofu is an amazing source of many micro nutrients and is [...]

Healthified Homemade Nutella (Video)

When you think of Nutella, you think 'hazelnut+cocoa', but when you look at the ingredients a typical jar is made up of only 13% hazelnuts! In fact, the first 2 ingredients are sugar and oil! That's not to say you cannot enjoy it from time to time as part of a balanced diet, but if you want to eat it on a daily basis, why not make you own healthy version that tastes equally as good!

Vegan Black Bean Nachos

Vegan Spicy Black Bean Nachos Since it's Friday today and apparently National Tortilla Chip Day, I just had to make a recipe using tortilla chips. Obviously it's not the healthiest thing in the world but it's ok to have every now and then as a treat. I've made it healthier by adding beans (for fibre and slow energy release), avocado (for an amazing source of fats), tomatoes, onions, and vegan cheese which you can leave out or use any kind of cheese you prefer.  Whenever I see nachos on a menu, I'm always so tempted by it. Especially if it's loaded with other delicious ingredients like avocado, tomatoes and jalapenos! But they're always smothered in cheese making them extra delicious of [...]
