Falafels in Lettuce Wraps with Tahini Dressing

A middle eastern street food staple, falafels are absolutely delicious and one of those things I absolutely love but don’t often get to eat… Although they have become popular on street food stalls in the UK, they are rarely gluten free. So.. time to make my own vegan and gluten free falafels! Chick peas, the main ingredient of falafels, are one of my favourite food[...]

Healthy Green Socca Pizza

Who doesn't want to eat pizza? We all do, so get ready to have the best healthy pizza ever.

Warm Lentil & Butternut Squash Salad

I am so happy I managed to grow this beauty in the garden without the slugs and snails getting to it first. In the end it took over a little as it trailed across the lawn but I ended up with this lovely looking butternut squash. It's always good to grow the foods you love eating and I sure am a big fan of butternut squash! I love it roasted, in stews and curries or in[...]

Autumnal Broccoli Mango Salad

I usually tend to throw things together with whatever's in the fridge, especially when it comes to salads, so it was really by accident that this salad happened. And what a lucky accident this Mango Broccoli Salad was! This is an incredible taste sensation of earthy broccoli with sweet juicy mango and crisp red onion, topped with a creamy tahini and hemp seed dressi[...]

Healthy Lunch Bowls

It's October already and here I am back at college for my final year as a Naturopathic Nutrition student. I am absolutely loving getting down to the nitty gritty of the effects nutrients have on our body. In particular I'm finding it fascinating learning about how certain nutrients play a role in switching on or off certain genes which may be the catalyst in the progr[...]

Slow living in Transylvania

The art of slow living has not been lost here high up in the Carpathian Mountains. I've been away from blogging and the likes for the past couple of weeks , but I've brought back a bit of my transylvanian holiday to share with you. As I was born and lived in Romania until the age of 12, every year for the summer holidays I make the pilgrimage back to my mother land t[...]

Simple Roast Veg

I cleared out some of big the shrubs in my garden earlier this year to make space for growing more veg and the first thing I put in were potatoes. They are just the most jo[...]
