Delicious Nutty Granola Bars

Are you stuck in a rut of either missing breakfast because there is no time in the morning and perhaps grabbing something quick like a Nutrigrain bar or a piece of toast? Do you then feel like you are absolutely starving come 10am? That could be where the importance of eating protein and healthy fats becomes apparent… It’s so important…

Cacao

I felt that cacao deserved a whole blog post of its own to clear up any confusion over whether chocolate is in fact good for you or not. And to explain the differences between cacao and cocoa…. A lot more than just the minor difference in spelling! You’ve probably heard it before but sometimes news this good bears repeating: chocolate…

Healthy Homemade Nutella

I wanted to create this recipe for all the Mums out there, all the Nutella obsessers and addicts who like to eat it from the jar with a spoon… or worse, a finger…(not mentioning any names). I want you to all have a healthier alternative that you can eat without feeling guilty! One that you can feed to your children…

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…

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! I do usually live by an 80:20 rule whereby I eat really well for the majority of the time, allowing myself the odd treat here and there. So…

Gluten friend or foe?

I wanted to write a blog post about gluten free diets. I feel there is a lot of confusion over the topic. People are labelled as ‘fussy eaters’ if they choose not to eat gluten even if they do not suffer from Coeliac disease. Many people believe there is nothing wrong with eating gluten and it’s just another ‘diet du…

Dairy Friend or Foe?

The purpose of today’s blog post is to try and clear up the confusion on consuming dairy once and for all. Many of you who read my blog will be aware that I don’t eat dairy for many reasons. Unless you have an intolerance, then like anything it is a personal choice whether or not to consume dairy produce. However, in…
