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.
Quick, easy, healthy, delicious. Chia puddings are the best. Chia seeds are one of those superfoods that you should just have in your cupboard at all times. I add them to nearly everything for a quick boost. They are packed with nutrients, antioxidants, protein and fibre, and by soaking them you bump up their size, making… Continue reading Vanilla Chia pudding
There’s no better thing in life than finding a way to ‘healthify’ naughty treats. I’d been craving chocolate/chocolate cake/sweets/anything that resembled a cake for a couple of weeks and no matter how many “totally clean” things I nibbled on, it just wasn’t going away. Sometimes you’ve just got to scratch that itch. Don’t give in and… Continue reading Gluten-free Brownie
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
Gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan friendly choco-banana cake, in honour of The Great British Bake Off starting tonight.
I fell in love with Ethiopian food recently, after a friend took me to a little place on the Caledonian Road, London. It’s wonderful; deep flavourful curries and stews which you eat with (and on) an Injera. An Injera, if you’re like me and never heard of the food before, is a sourdough-risen flatbread. To… Continue reading Turmeric pancakes
If you’re like me, you wince every time someone eats shop bought granola thinking it’s healthy. It’s filled to the brim with sugar, that’s why it’s so wonderfully tasty! Nice as a treat breakfast, yes, but don’t be under any illusion it’s not got lots of added naughties in it. So instead….make your own! It’s so… Continue reading Home-made Healthy Granola
As I’ve grown more confident in my clean cooking skills I’m finding the ‘first attempt’ at new recipes is working. Hooray! It’s a special kind of joy when you find you’re getting good at your hobby – I feel like I’m quite a good cook now! 🙂 Turn the clock back even two years ago… Continue reading Experimenting in the kitchen
I love taking a naughty meal and finding a clean and healthy way to cook it instead. This delicious chicken makes a simple stir-fry full of flavour and beats any take-away meal. Make some gyoza, or lemon chicken too and you’ve got a home-made healthy and clean Chinese Fakeaway!
This is such a great dish. The other week I made us my sesame chicken (recipe coming soon!), and just didn’t want anything carby with it. Noodles were off the menu! It was also a week night, so I wanted to avoid cooking up another side dish if possible – if I can make it… Continue reading Chinese leaf salad and warm sesame dressing
