A little summer treat, the buckwheat and rice flour make these little cupcakes great for gluten free folk, and are a healthier option than refined white flour, while still giving a soft cakey texture. A 50:50 mix of the flours gives me the same consistency as ‘normal’ flour, and tastes so much better than replacing… Continue reading Gluten free banana cupcakes
It’s April at the end of the week and I cannot believe where the year is going. 2020 (a.k.a The far and distant future where we’ll all have hoverboards) seems not so far away, and that is terrifying. I’ve found since Christmas that I’ve just not quite been on the ‘no sugar’ lifestyle as I was… Continue reading Going Sugar Free
I love a new cookery book. Even better when the cover is a bright happy blue. Jamie Oliver is one of my favourite chefs, I’m obsessed with 15 minute meals (easy and delicious, amiright?) so I’ve been so excited by his latest book Everyday Super Food. After it was released I had my knee operation… Continue reading Jamie’s Everyday Super Food: Green Tea Soaked Salmon
January. If you’re like me you indulged over Christmas. Hell, it’s Christmas after all. And for me, it was my thirtieth birthday so by gum I wasn’t going to worry about eating that extra bag of chocolates. But now it’s the new year, and time to get back on the straight and narrow. Maybe it’s… Continue reading Lean, Clean and Mean January
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!

Quinoa is a whole grain so breaks down slower, giving you more energy for longer and no spikes. Great! Makes 2 pizzas Base: 3/4 cup quinoa 1 large egg Salt and… Continue reading Quinoa Pizza – gluten free!
A HUGE winner for dinner parties. 100% clean and healthy, but tastes like a naughty dessert. Make for guests, a summer BBQ, or just for yourself. Eat it guilt free. ❤ I might keep this up my sleeve for Christmas dinner….
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
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
