Ever since I moved south(east) of the River I get very excited when anything new and/or cool comes this way. So imagine my happiness when I saw Blackheath as an option on Time Out’s Local eats competition. Huzzah! We’ve made it guys. I had the same reaction as when we saw our first millennial with a beard… Continue reading Hand Made Food, Blackheath
A while ago I read this fascinating article by David Cohen from the Evening Standard (@cohenstandard) on living on the tight food budget that far too many people face now a days. For seven days he lived off a £20 food budget. Total. That’s seven breakfasts, seven lunches, seven dinners, snacks, drinks, anything. To summarise: it was… Continue reading Dinner money: Could you live on £20 a week?
The other week I won a competition by the lovely Anna at Heart and Bowl for a pack of Booja Booja chocolate truffles. 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
They say the best way to exercise is to find something that doesn’t seem like exercise, but feels just like fun. Well, enter stage right: Rebounding. Rebounding is a low impact cardio workout, where you spend about 30 minutes jumping on a mini trampoline. It’s basically the most fun you can have at the gym.… Continue reading Rebounding – jumping and bouncing into summer
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.
Healthy eating (whether that’s clean, paleo, IIFYM, whatever floats your boat…) really doesn’t have to be that difficult. Eating right (especially if you’re trying to lose a few extra pounds) isn’t just having plain salads and dry chicken. As I’ve taught myself the clean way of eating (mantra: “It’s a lifestyle, not a diet”) it’s just been a case… Continue reading Keeping it clean – 8 rules of healthy eating
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 make these and keep them in the fridge for the week – so easy to grab when you’re on the go. I tend to go to the gym before work which means a horrid start of 5.50am, and there is no way I want to eat at that time of the morning! These are… Continue reading Gym power: ‘Ferrero Rocher’ energy balls
Weekday, workday breakfasts. If I’m being good that morning, I’ve got up at 6am for the gym. If I’m not going to the gym, I’ve usually not got up with enough time to sit down for breakfast at home. Either way, I need something I can grab and go. My ‘breakfast d’jour’ at the moment… Continue reading Apple & Coconut bircher museli
