Three Healthy Snack Ideas

I’ve always been a snacker! I don’t understand how people can go long periods of time without eating. I turn into a slightly irritable unfocused mess when I am hungry so you will always find me with healthy snacks. Many of us feel guilty about snacking and we really shouldn’t. I mean, unless it’s a danish pastry, a bag of Doritos and full sized Easter egg you’re snacking on- naming no names (mum)…

Sweet Potato, Tomato and Pine Nut Salad

sweet potato salad lottie murphyThis is pretty much all my favourite foods in a salad and I would totally add feta too but today I’ve opted without it making this salad a vegan option. I also didn’t have any! Remember making your plate as colourful as possible is what you are looking for. I’ve dressed the base of watercress and quinoa with lemon and dried oregano to make it super tasty and then topped with roasted sweet potato, cherry tomatoes and red pepper. The whole thing is then finished off with pine nuts, sun dried tomatoes, avocado and a crack of pink himalayan salt…

A Supergood Greens Smoothie

On a sunny day last week I took a visit to The Good Guru headquarters in Surrey to meet with their in house nutritionist Simone. I’ve dabbled with supplements for the last few years and was really interested to talk with Simone and find out a little bit more about The Good Guru range as well as why she is so passionate about supplements and superfoods, my favourite so far is the the Good Greens from their Superfood range and I thought I’d share this delicious Supergood Greens smoothie with you plus a little bit more about my take on supplements…

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…

Sweet Scrambled Eggs On Healthy French Toast

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…

This Week Eat Turmeric

When we think of super foods, it’s normally spirulina and cacao that come to mind but there’s so many superfoods that are likely to be in your kitchen cupboard already and turmeric is one of them. Turmeric is often used in curries and mustard as it has that fabulous golden orange colour but I don’t typically have a curry every day surprisingly so I wanted to start adding it to recipes

Healthy Chocolate Raspberry Bake

Raspberry Bake

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! 

My Skincare Routine | VIDEO

I get asked a lot about my skin and what I use on it so thought I’d share with you the products I use and my general outlook on skincare. I am lucky to have quite a glowing complexion naturally but my skin isn’t perfect, I do still get some spots around my chin and jaw which is hormonal and I get little dry batches if I don’t keep on top of drinking enough water and moisturising.
