Dairy free, gluten free, and soya free, they promise to be a guilt free treat option. I try not to eat too much dairy so I was so excited to try these. I LOVED… Continue reading Booja Booja chocolates
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
I make these and keep them in the fridge for the week – so easy to grab when you’re on the go.

These are… Continue reading Gym power: ‘Ferrero Rocher’ energy balls

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!
