Raw Chocolate & Nut Energy Bites I’ve recently cut out a few things from my diet including added sugar, gluten, processed foods and caffeinated drinks to try and heal my gut and reduce my anxiety levels. There are 2 things I’m really REALLY missing so far – tea and chocolate!  Over the years I have developed the habit of drinking way too much black tea. …

I know I’m not alone when I say this – I’m obsessed with avocados! Another thing that I love is bruschetta – the crispy bread it’s served on, the flavours and the simplicity of the idea! I’ve made simple tomato and basil bruschetta many times, then one day it occurred to me, why not add avocado? It made perfect sense.

Banana ice cream is by far the best, tastiest and healthiest way to cool down on a hot summer’s day, in my opinion. It’s so quick to make, given that you have bananas in your freezer which I make sure I always do during summer in anticipation for such scorching days, and it’s so creamy and delicious without any guilt whatsoever!

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!

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!

These fries will change your life! Well not really, but if you’re trying to be healthier but still want to enjoy chips or ‘fries’ from time to time (or everyday!) then this might just make your life a little bit brighter.
