Spring Time Spring Rolls

Yesssss!!! Blue skies, blossom and sunshine! Have been looking forward to the spring feeling like spring for what seems like too long now. I've been eating very wintery foods still, lots of soups and stews but not today! Today I feel like eating raw veg and so I've made these super simple little rolls with the best peanut butter dipping sauce, ever!! I love listening[...]

What’s with Gluten

I've been gluten free for six years now and have seen this trend picking up momentum ever since. But why and how has this become such a thing, in what seems a very short amount of time? Why is gluten causing so many problems for so many people? Issues such as brain fog, digestive and absorption issues, joint pains, skin problems and fatigue often present themselves[...]

Egg Cups 2 Ways

When it comes to keeping on track with a healthy lifestyle preparation is key. Planning meals and doing food prep in advance is such a great way to always be on top of things, know what your next meal or snack is leaving less to temptation. Making a few of these Egg Cups in advance is great because they keep in the fridge for 2-3 days, are really good for breakfast[...]

Buckwheat and Mushroom Risotto

This is the meal of the moment for me. Buckwheat and Mushroom Risotto, gorgeous and comforting as the days get shorted and the winter sets in. Buckwheat is a staple Eastern European food, an ancient grain with a long history. While many people think that buckwheat is a cereal grain, it is actually a fruit seed that is related to rhubarb and sorrel making it a suita[...]

Baked Sweet Potatoes with Avocado Salsa and Cannellini Bean Hummus

You know those evening when you just want dinner to cook itself... I'm asked all the time about 'what can I eat when I get back from work late'? Often the choice people make in these situations is not the best...  Take out or ready meals or a sandwich is often the choice for many. If this is you and you want a quick dinner without compromising on the healthiness of yo[...]

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[...]
