Christmassy French Toast!

That time of year has rolled around again and what greets the Christmas season better than lights, trees or snow? It has got to be food! 😛 I’ve never had the confidence to cook for my family around such a traditional time of year before, but for the next few weeks I’m going to try my best to…

Cocoa and Lime Energy Balls

Be it to keep yourself going between shower time and meal time after an intense run, or just to ease the sound of  a rumbling stomach in the office, energy balls are an incredibly versatile and tasty way to keep you going when cooking time isn’t such an option. 🙂 A super @endorphinstew energy ball recipe…

Sweet Courgette Bread & Homemade Nutella 

Finally, a guiltless place to run to on a Friday night when I feel like binging on a big tub of Nutella after a hard week’s work. Okay, maybe my Homemade Nutella isn’t completely guiltless, but it is made from wholefoods and is a lot less likely to do you harm over the original. 😉 …

Avocado Protein Porridge

Sounds strange? I know… But if you think it tastes strange, I beg to differ. Avocado for me is  a smoothie staple and with the right amount of added sweetness, it also enhances their taste, and especially their texture. Since I like my avocado smoothies and usually include oats in them, I thought I’d leave…

Sweet Potato & Soya Mince Fritters

The variety of fritter recipes circulating in our cookbooks and the online nowadays is so extensive that comparing any random two must be like comparing chalk with cheese sometimes. Don’t get me wrong, this isn’t a bad thing… I’m all for putting twists on traditional recipes, so hopping on this bandwagon was right up my street. For my version,…

Gymtime Doughnuts

It goes without saying that having the words doughnut and protein in the same blog post may seem like a bit of a paradox; I mean, how wise would it be to reach for one or two after a madly intense gym session? Yet, even though the word doughnut conjures up vivid images of greasy…

Teriyaki Courgetti

Fan of the classic Chicken Teriyaki dish? Here it is and without so much of the Saturday-Night-Takeaway or Unhealthy-Convenience-Food guilt. 😉 Note: this one requires a courgetti maker which is available in places such as Argos or Tesco – well worth the small investment if you’re hoping to swap refined spaghetti carbs with wholesome courgette/cucumber spirals. 🙂 INGREDIENTS:…

Smoked Chicken Scones

For me, a whiff of smoked paprika brings with it some old culinary memories. Most notably: the times I tried to cook as an eleven or twelve year old. On certain occasions back then, I remember volunteering myself to cook dinner for everybody in the house – even though it would mostly be a dish…

Chia & Chocolate Goji Berry Clusters

Coconut Chia Porridge

If there was ever a great canvas for working with in the mornings, it’s just got to be porridge. Even when you’re following a porridge recipe, I feel it’s hard to not want to change a couple of things up each time, because there is just so damn much you can do with it. 😛…
