Comfort food. This is one of my favourites. Last week I had the worst cold in ages, I could barely walk around for 20 minutes, and I certainly didn’t want to cook anything. Or eat anything. But also, I wanted to eat every single thing on earth all at once. Yeah it was one of… Continue reading Salmon & spinach gnocchi
I love chilli. Hearty and happy, it’s one of those meals that everyone (and I mean everyone, veggies look over here at my vegetable chilli) enjoys eating. We have chilli most weeks in our house – it’s a great weekday meal as usually it’ll do a few meals – and usually tastes better the second… Continue reading Turkey Mince. Lean, mean, clean.
Oh oh oh oh omega-3! This is PACKED with goodness, super quick to make AND if you’re prepared it lasts overnight in a lunchbox for a work-time lunch. Huzzah! Serves 2 2 fillets smoked mackerel, sliced 70g rocket 4 x beetroots, chopped into chunks 50g feta Handful pumpkin seeds Dressing: 3 tsp x olive oil… Continue reading Beetroot, feta & mackerel salad
If I could eat one thing every single day for the rest of my life, chilli would probably be it. It ticks every single box for me: spicy, warm, filling, and really darn easy to make. Recently we’ve been eating vegetable chilli quite often, it’s a really easy way to get extra vegetables into your… Continue reading Vegetable and bean spicy chilli
I could eat ramen every single day quite happily. Takes no time to make, it’s so incredibly healthy, and you feel full and warm and happy afterwards. The best bit is you can add any vegetables or protein that you like. I’m pretty boring and I make it or order it the same way every… Continue reading Chilli chicken ramen
There’s nothing quite like homemade bread. But in all honesty it can sometimes feel like too much effort when you can nip to the shops…but no more! This healthy and clean spelt and seed loaf couldn’t be easier to make; 15 minutes of work, a bit of a wait while it bakes and voila! Healthy… Continue reading Spelt and seed bread loaf
POW. Sometimes you just want a big bowl of meat. This salad is wonderful, and with zero carb it’s on track for you whether you’re paleo, gluten free, clean, or just trying something new. Not okay for vegetarians or vegans though, natch 😉 I love this for a light but still protein rich post gym… Continue reading Beef meatballs and pomegranate salad
I had this beauty in a piazza, in Rome, in the sunshine. It was the best salad I’d ever had. I can’t pick one bit that makes this salad good – it feels like it shouldn’t work with nearly every ingredient having strong powerful flavours, but it just does. The orange plays off the stilton… Continue reading “Rome Salad” – walnut, stilton, orange and pear salad
All hail the bean burger. This is a great weekday dinner; so simple to put together and full of good energy. Now Autumn is drawing in, these are the sorts of hearty meals you need after a long day at work. Serve with peas and sweet potato fries for a great ‘kids dinner’. Happiness.
Ahh Italy, home of my most favourite food. I think I like anything and everything the Italians make; and nothing beats breakfast, lunch and dinner in Italy itself! Back in April we went on a bit of a tour of the country, at one point staying in Sorrento very nearly at the home-town of the… Continue reading Caprese Salad
