Chewy cookies are the best cookies in my opinion. There’s just something about a soft centre! I am huge fan of nut butters and decided to use tahini and peanut butter in this cookie recipe as an alternative to normal butter/coconut oil which tends to be in every single healthy baking recipe!
My boyfriend always moans that I never follow a recipe word for word but I don’t really see that as cooking/baking if you do- it’s just reading and following instructors. If you don’t have something or don’t like one of the ingredients then change it! If it turns out awful then who cares! For instance- my boyfriend said “why did you feel the need to put raspberries in this cake?” he he but for me- the raspberries totally work! They add a sweet fruity gooey texture to this choccie bake!
I love hosting girls night and this weekend made a healthy nutritious one pan mexican quinoa dish. I am one pan dish queen and this meal is so easy and tasty. All my friends loved it. The combo of the black beans, sweetcorn and qunioa makes such a nice texture and my favourite ingredients in the world to have together is avocado and lime
Easter may be over but that doesn’t mean the chocolate eating needs to stop. Raw cacao is the pure form of chocolate before all the sugar, milk and additives are added and it’s a fabulous superfood to add to your meals. I love having raw cacao at the start of my day
I was honoured to be asked recently along with 14 other health and fitness bloggers to contribute a recipe to a new ebook to raise money for B-EAT (the UKs Eating Disorder Charity). As someone who suffered with food and weight management in my teens
Blogging is one of the best things I ever started doing due to so many reasons, one of which is meeting amazing new friends.
They say you can tell a lot about person from their bookshelf and the fact that mine is pretty much full of recipe books would suggest that they are correct! When I first started eating healthier, I was obsessed with recipe books; they really opened my eyes to the fact that there really is no restrictions when it comes to healthy eating.
I have always had a sweet tooth and have to have something a little sweet after my dinner every night. This is definitely something I’m gradually trying to cut back on but if you’re aware of your sugar intake from all sources then a little night time sweetness won’t hurt. I’ve learnt to try and find healthy quick dessert ideas and they make me happy so I wanted to share them with you if you also crave cheesecake and chocolate pudding at around 8pm.
Baked beans, jacket potato and cheese was one of my favourite school lunches as a child, there’s something so comforting about a jacket potato. This dinner is a healthier alternative and full of amazing nutrients which will also fill you up, I’ve been loving it for dinner and lunch since the weather turned so cold…
I have recently become more aware of the amount of hidden sugar in things I eat especially in my go to snacks! I love to snack on nakd bars, dried fruit and nuts, dark chocolate, oatcakes with honey, bananas, carrots and hummus and all these snacks are actually quite high in sugar. Yes they are healthy snacks and the sugar is natural sugar but it all adds up and I wanted to find some less sugary snacks! I created this Turmeric Cabbage Scramble. Turmeric is the most anti-inflammatory spice and adds a lovely flavour to this simple green high protein snack. This is a nutritious snack you can make at home in 10 minutes or even turn it into a meal by adding some rye bread and avocado!
