TRIPLE CHOCOLATE COCONUT PANCAKES

TRIPLE CHOCOLATE COCONUT PANCAKES

Chocolate has to be my biggest weakness, especially when trying to lead a healthier lifestyle. Yes I can make raw brownies with cacao powder, and eat nibbles of dark chocolate. However place anything chocolatey in front me and it gets immediately devoured. My problem is self control, therefore I do not buy these sorts of foods for the house. Out of site out of mind. Yet I am currently at my nanas. What it is about grandparents wanting to fill you full of sugar? Even when your 25 they still…

GOOD GREENS MATCHA OATS

GOOD GREENS MATCHA OATS

We have been told all our lives to eat our greens, it will make us strong. Here you go watch Popeye an be brainwashed. Though it does hold truth and greens have amazing health benefits for our body. Lucky for me I have never been a fussy eater and always eaten my veggies. However with 5 a day a thing of the past and 10 a day moving forward, I wonder how we can all incorporate more veggies into our diet. So when The Good Guru sent over their Good…

HEALTHY BERRY PROTEIN MILKSHAKE

HEALTHY BERRY PROTEIN MILKSHAKE

This Saturday I needed a big pick me up. Having had an indulgent night and the odd glass of wine. I woke up feeling groggy and bloated. As you do. Now I am older even a glass of wine makes me suffer for hours. I remembered why I rarely drink anymore. So with my mouth feeling like ghandy’s flip flops and my stomach like a washing machine, I needed some goodness in my body! I have recently received a lot of goody parcels. Considering I was planning a long walk…

INDIGO HERBS REVIEW AND EXCLUSIVE RECIPES

INDIGO HERBS REVIEW AND EXCLUSIVE RECIPES

As you are probably well aware by now I live in the middle of bumfluff nowhere. A worn down town that lived its hay days during the height of the slipper industry. That being said it means I am surrounded by beautiful countryside, countless reservoirs and open fells. It is pretty easy to lead a healthy lifestyle here. We always walk to do our Tesco shop, which is six miles. There are amazing places to go bike riding along with stunning walks. Having all those joys does not come without…

JUST BEE HONEY WATER – REVIEW

As you are all aware by now, I am a HUGE fan of flavoured waters. They go over tap water, fizzy drinks and squash hands down!

Last year so far I my taste buds got tingling with POW energy water, OmegaWater, JF Rabbit Veg Water and Flo Drinks. Now I get to add another one to the list. Just Bee honey water. Now before their Dragon’s Den fame (We will…

BRITISH LEEKS – RECIPE REVIEW – LEEK WHITE BEAN AND SMOKED HADDOCK STEW

BRITISH LEEKS – RECIPE REVIEW – LEEK WHITE BEAN AND SMOKED HADDOCK STEW

This year I made a promise to myself. This was to experiment with more foods, and follow more recipes so I can gain better skills in the kitchen. I mean you do not learn out of nowhere, and following recipes allow you to learn more skills and give you a better understanding of food pairings. Leeks are a vegetable that I rarely use in my cooking. I adore leek and potato soup, however that is as far as my leek usage goes. So when I got chatting to British Leeks…
