Savoury Flapjack Recipe : The Sugar Free Snack

Savoury flapjacks Lottie Murphy

So I have been snacking on these savoury flapjacks every day since coming back from Catalonia, I simply had to share the recipe with you guys. Kimberly Parsons, author of The Yoga Kitchen, gave them to us for our packed lunch for the journey home from her retreat, so cute, and I instantly made a big batch the day after I got back. I’m a huge flapjack fan and I love snacking but most flapjacks, even the healthy versions, can sometimes contain a bit too much sugar for an every day snack. These savoury versions are a fabulous snack on the go as they are packed with vegetables, egg, oats, herbs and a little feta. I’m on to my third batch already…

Perfect Poached Eggs On Seasonal Greens

I bumped into my nutritionist friend the other day and she reminded me of the importance of eating seasonally. With this in mind I decided to create a super simple delicious meal using seasonal greens and my favourite food ever, poached eggs! I could eat this dish for breakfast, lunch and dinner and the sprinkle of parmesan really takes it to the next level. Swapping your standard toast for the seasonal greens a couple of times a week is a great if you looking to keep things light and avoid that sluggish feeling. Whole and in season veg is what you want to be choosing to feel vibrant all year round and I love making eggs the main part of my meal at least twice a week…

Easy Protein Packed Quinoa One Pot

The last month has been so busy that I have slightly neglected my home cooking, my fridge is often pretty sad with half eaten salad bags, some olives and peanut butter lurking in the back. I know this is just for now while other areas of my life take priority and I’m trying not to let it stress me out and still managing to eat healthily. Being busy is definitely not an excuse to get take outs! One evening last week, I had to be creative with store cupboard and freezer ingredients and the finish result was pretty awesome, here’s my leftover protein packed quinoa one pot, it’s an amazing and easy healthy recipe… 

Mission Glow Smoothie

When the sun is shining, a smoothie is my number 1 breakfast choice. Having a healthy glow on the outside is one of my main goals as I know that when my skin is clear, fresh and glowing that it’s a reflection of whats going on inside my body and what I put in my body is so important to achieve this. I feel like in the winter, factors like a little too much alcohol consumption, not enough vibrant smoothies/salads and non existent sunshine made me lose my glow a little and I want it back! So it’s full steam ahead on mission glow, starting with this glow smoothie…

Lemon And Chia Seed Muffins

The Body and Brunch

These muffins were tried and tested by 16 health enthusiatic girlies as the perfect post pilates snack on Sunday at my The Body and Brunch event. Made by the wonderful Faye Saunders and complimented our yummy LiEBES bircher. I thought I’d share the recipe with you as well as some pics from the event. There’s no better way to spend a Sunday morning then with Pilates, healthy food, green juices and lovely company!

I love eggs and know that they are the best thing for me in the morning however I do usually crave something sweet like porridge or pancakes first thing so I decided to create a sweet version of the much loved scrambled eggs on healthy french toast. This breakfast is epic and keeps me fuller for longer compared to my usual porridge, it’s my new favourite lazy Sunday morning treat…

Make Eggs Your Hero Ingredient

It doesn’t surprise me that eggs were at the top of the most instagrammed list in 2015! We all love eggs and know how great they are for us but I think we need to get a little more creative with them and make them the star of the meal! This year I am involved in the #eggcentric campaign with British Lion Eggs and I’ve been bought onboard as an ambassador to create some tasty and innovative egg recipes for you guys including these energising egg slices…

Healthy Christmas Cleanse Soup

So it’s a week before Christmas day and there’s already various tempting chocolate selection boxes and M&S biscuits everywhere I look! Believe me, I don’t turn down the odd M&S biscuit but to balance out an indulgent couple of weeks ahead I thought I would create a tasty cleansing soup that I’m going to enjoy for lunches and dinners over the next week. I would say this could be a healthy spin on a minestrone as I’ve used cannellini beans, courgettes and tomatoes but I also added butternut squash and various spices to give it a seasonal christmas punch!
