Packaged Right: My Top Ready-Made Picks

It goes without saying that we all have busy lives these days. So when it comes to preparing meals, sometimes we… well… just would rather not do it. Supermarkets are a godsend to the 21st century in that some of the ready-made meals and products they stock can save us minutes and hours in the kitchen;…

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,…

Pressure King Pro; Taking the Pressure out of Cooking

As somebody with as much as a veggie spiralizer and a few tupperware containers to my name when it comes to owning kitchen gadgets, you could say I was pretty chuffed when my very own pressure cooker came my way recently. Being able to take advantage of all kitchen appliances  in the family home is an…

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…

From Seeds to Feeds: A Chia Bia Collab

Hey guys, I hope you’re all keeping mighty! 😀 What an exciting past week I had sharing my Chia Bia inspired recipes with you all; I felt they turned out a lot better than I expected them to and I put this down to a lack of exam stress in the end. 😛 I figured…

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. 😛…

Quick Pitta Pizza & Mild Curry Nachos

Hey guys, I hope you’re all keeping well and enjoying this weekend’s mini heatwave while it lasts. 😛 So, I was up at the late a.m. this morning with my coffee and thinking cap on, in an attempt to get some good recipes in before Sunday gets hectic and heavy like always. 😀 Even though blogging involves…
