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…
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!!
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.
You all know how much I LOVE overnight oats. It’s the most convenient breakfast ever! And at the same time it can be the most delicious breakfast as well. Over the past couple of years I’ve made a few different variations of overnight oats and I’ve listed below my 10 favourite combinations.
This banana blueberry baked oatmeal is vegan, dairy free and can easily be made gluten free. You could add some protein powder, nuts or seeds to make it a more well rounded breakfast.
Are there any Terry’s Chocolate Orange fans in the house? If you live in the UK, you’ll probably be getting one in your Christmas stocking next month, but for those of you not familiar with Terry’s chocolate orange, it’s an orange flavoured chocolate that’s a festive staple in many UK households. Round in shape with separated segments, just like an orange!
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.
