Courgetti with Rocket & Cherry Tomato Salsa

Spiralizing veg has been a big trend now for a few years, so today I want to share with you my favourite courgetti recipe. As most of my recipes are, it's quick and easy and if you don't have a spiralizer, you can use a julienne peeler instead. Courgettes are a wonderful vegetable, containing  significant levels of potassium to control blood pressure, vitamin C to boo[...]

Pumpkin, Kale and Black Rice Noodles

This year is absolutely flying by, I can't actually believe it's already Halloween... and pumpkin season! I bought a beautiful little pumpkin last week from which I will be enough to make two or three dishes. The first one I'm sharing with you today, is a very simple dish of roasted pumpkin, kale and black rice noodles - you can use any pasta or noodles of your ch[...]

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[...]

Quick Lunch Ideas - Black Bean Quinoa Salad

As I write this I am juggling the kids homework, washing is waiting to be hung out, updating social media and emails coming in about work. Let's face it, life is busy for all of us, and a quick lunch is often what's needed. I do my best to have breaks from it all (technology & multi tasking in particular) but a lot of the time I feel like a whirling dervish. As a [...]

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[...]

Quinoa Tabbouleh

Studying for my end of year exam at the moment and sadly haven't got much time for fun experimenting with new dishes in the kitchen.. As a result all I want to eat is this trusty quinoa tabbouleh! It's fresh, crunchy and zingy, great on it's own, with a leafy salad or with a side of roasted veg, for breakfast {I love dinner leftovers for breakfast}, lunch or dinner!  [...]

Miso Noodle Soup

Today's food choice was mainly determined by whatever was left in the fridge and the grey weather making me want to eat something warm and comforting. When this is the case soup is always the answer. Miso paste is a staple in my fridge, as a fermented food it's full of good bacteria for your gut and it's so easy to use as a base for soups and stir fries. Along with th[...]
