Vegan Oatmeal cookies


2 Comments

Cookies are definitely my favourite thing to bake (and to eat)! Ever since my sister and I started baking them at the age of ten I have always preferred the taste of home made cookies. Obviously a little older now but still holding on to that nostalgic memory. I thought I would share my more recent, more grown up and most definitely more healthier version of my homemade cookie.

They are delicious yet substantial, so they fill your tummy up, satisfy you and kill that sugar craving at the same time.

These ones are especially amazing as they are completely vegan friendly, YAY.

Very easy to throw together and only take 8 minutes to bake…

Edamame + Spinach Hummus (Ve)


No Comments

Are you needing more greens in your life but just don’t know how to get them?! We all know the amazing benefits of plants! However sometimes it can be tricky to get as much as we would like into our diet.

By making this spinach and edamame hummus at home you know you are getting all of that goodness and nourishment without having to eat a plate of kale for lunch.

This hummus takes less that 10 minutes to make and is so delicious that you could serve it at a dinner party and people would ask for the recipe…

Warming winter salad


No Comments

As the days get shorter and the nights get longer I have this yearning to cuddle up on the sofa with a blanket, a good movie and lots of comfort food. Staying motivated to exercise is harder too! Going outside to run when its 5 degrees and pouring rain is just not quite as appealing as it is in summer.

This makes it then harder to eat well. I love summer foods. I love to eat salads, banana ice cream and fruit…everything which is definitely meant to be eaten on a tropical island not in London, in the wet and cold!

Then the less I move my body and the more heavy food I eat the less happy and energised I become, so it really is a downward spiral…

However we can’t let winter dampen our spirits and stop us from reaching our goals! So to stop S.A.D. from happening I listen to my body and consciously avoid heavy foods and fuel it with yummy, nutritious meals. I make sure what I eat is still warming and tasty so I feel super satisfied for those colder evening.

So here is my favourite healthy warming winter meal. Trust me you are going to want to try this…

The five a day Soup


1 Comment

Vegetables are good for us + plants are power! The nutrients found in vegetables are vital for a healthy body and can even reduce our risk of chronic disease. This is probably not new news to most of us. However it can sometimes be difficult to get in those five recommended vegetables a day and all of the nutrients we need.

I am very conscious of what I put into my body, making sure I am nourishing it in order for it to stay healthy and energised. When it reaches dinner time and I feel like a need that extra bit of veg in my life I will make this soup!

It is delicious, hearty, contains your five a day and is very easy to make…

Rhubarb Bircher


No Comments

Rhubarb believe it or not is a vegetable, somewhere along the way it has just been treated like a fruit and I love it! I love its tartness, its britishness and for me it takes me instantly back to my childhood, when my granddad would make his homemade rhubarb crumble.

Rhubarb is a great add on for lots of dishes, it makes amazing deserts and one of my favourite things to make is a rhubarb Bakewell tart (YUMMY). However last week I went to a Native Highs Yoga and brunch event and we had the most delicious breakfast from Dust Granola. It was bircher, cacao granola and you guessed it a rhubarb compote!! It was so delicious and such a great breakfast combination that it totally inspired me to give it ago and make my own rhubarb bircher at home.

Taking full advantage of the fact that my mum has a garden full of rhubarb I came up with this ridiculously tasty and healthy bircher recipe.

Healthy banana and chocolate ice cream


No Comments

I SCREAM WE SCREAM WE ALL SCREAM FOR ICE CREAM.

Who said you can’t have dessert for breakfast!?

Well with this ice cream bowl you can have all the yummies of a dessert, eat it at 9.00am and feel completely guilt free…

This healthy take on ice cream is so incredibly smooth, creamy and chocolatey that you would never know it wasn’t the real deal. Apart from everything is wonderfully natural, it’s free of unnatural sugars, processed ingredients, animal products and chemicals so it will leave you feeling energised and glowing from the inside out. Instead of getting a massive sugar rush and crashing 10 minutes later!

This is one of my favourite breakfasts, it is fantastically sweet, creamy and delicious!

It is honestly heaven in a bowl and even if you don’t like bananas, don’t worry, for some reason (maybe the freezing) it doesn’t have that banana taste!

It is super easy to make and you only need four ingredients…
