I’ve wanted to buy an activity tracker for a while. I love all that stuff: quantifying exactly what you’re eating (MyFitnessPal addict), doing, and achieving. There’s no doubt in my mind that the gamification of exercise and setting yourself clear targets and competitions gets you moving that little bit more, that little bit further and… Continue reading What wearable activity tracker should I buy?
I could eat ramen every single day quite happily. Takes no time to make, it’s so incredibly healthy, and you feel full and warm and happy afterwards. The best bit is you can add any vegetables or protein that you like. I’m pretty boring and I make it or order it the same way every… Continue reading Chilli chicken ramen
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
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….
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
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
Clean, paleo spaghetti carbonara recipe.
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
