Roasted & Stuffed Pumpkin

I personally feel that no Halloween is complete without pumpkins. I find them completely magical and nostalgic, probably all thanks to Mr Walt Disney and his epic creation of Cinderella. Their form, their colour and their twisty vines are so beautiful and mysterious. I think they set the tone for autumn and Halloween perfectly. This means one thing for me:…

Caramel Apple Pie Porridge

I’ve got a little bit of an obsession with porridge at the moment. I think now that we are well and truly in to Autumn and nearing Winter it is just the perfect comfort food to warm me up in the mornings. This recipe was dreamt up after I had made an apple crumble the other week, it was so…

Blueberry & Chia Bircher Muesli

It was my birthday last week so with all the different celebrations going on I ate and drank lots of things that I wouldn’t normally, including birthday cake and lots of cocktails!

Unless you have an intolerance, then like anything it is a personal choice whether or not to consume dairy produce. However, in…

  Turmeric has risen to fame over the last year or so, making its way in to lattes, biscuits and even porridge on the health scene. And it’s no wonder people are cramming it in to anything they can because of it’s awesome set of health benefits! Curcumin is the main active ingredient in turmeric and there has been extensive…

Matcha Green Tea Energy Balls

    Do you ever get to about 4pm and have that real slump of energy where you are desperate to grab a coffee or reach for the biscuit tin? Did you know that doing this is the worst possible thing you could do for your energy levels? Biscuits are pure sugar and cause a huge spike in insulin followed…

Raspberry Chia Jam-Jacks

Today’s post is actually 2 recipes in 1. There is first the recipe for the sugar free chia jam (which honestly tastes just like a real jam but way less sickly sweet). So you could just take that away from todays post and spread it on your toast or in-between a sponge cake or you could go the whole hog…
