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
So I started working in Soho and just round the corner from me is the incredible Nordic Bakery. My boyfriend kept saying in the run up to me starting my role that I had to go there, so once I’d settled in I tottered round to see what they were saying. I stuck my head in… Continue reading Nordic Bakery oatcake – made clean and gluten free!

Roka Roka Roka. I’ve been trying to get to you for ages. The other week I finally managed to get through the doors as a ‘Goodbye, thanks for the hard work’ lunch with my boss and it was everything I had hoped it would be: i.e. AMAZING.. Roka is an award winning Japanese and sushi restaurant… Continue reading Roka, Charlotte St, London
It is possible to make naughty treats healthy, or at least make them healthier. I love taking desserts and seeing if a clean version works, or in some cases, tastes even better! Yes, it doesn’t always work (let’s not talk about the Tiramisu saga) but when it does, boy oh boy do I feel smug. Meringues are… Continue reading Clean and healthy meringues
I just started working in Soho, so suddenly I have no idea where to get a week day lunch. I’ve started exploring… Vital Ingredients is a great alternative to Chopped, Eat or Pure if you’re in the Golden Square area of London. The salad bar is really nicely stocked, with a few more ‘unusual’ ingredients; artichoke,… Continue reading Vital Indredients, Golden Square
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 ate this constantly through the summer – it’s the perfect quick meal! My approach to cooking is usually “how long will it actually take to make?”. I love being in the kitchen and making delicious food, but spending hours watching a pot and making minute changes to it (or the dreaded “stir for 20 mins”)… Continue reading Chilli beef 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.
