HEALTHY CHOCOLATE EASTER TREATS

HEALTHY CHOCOLATE EASTER TREATS

I absolutely adore Easter and I wanted to make some healthy chocolate Easter treats. Just love it. It is a sign of Spring, a fresh start and new life. The sun comes out, flowers are in bloom, little lambs are being born and of course it is my Birthday! I have two super fond Easter memories.. My nana’s sister and her husband came to our house when I was around 8, with HUGE baskets full of eggs. We were never ones to really indulge as children. Chocolate and sweet things…

CAPSICANA COOK SAUCES – REVIEW

CAPSICANA COOK SAUCES – REVIEW

I am one who loves added a burst of flavour to my food. I guess my influences have come from the food I was brought up with and the places I have travelled to. From classical French, to prickly North African, and although I have no yet been the Far East. The best ways to make these dishes stand out, in my eyes, is to cook everything from scratch! However there are some nights, getting in when I am just not feeling it. This is where cook sauces come in….

OLIVE AND PESTO ENCRUSTED FISH

OLIVE AND PESTO ENCRUSTED FISH

By now we all know that I am a fishy fan. Yet I still find it difficult to incorporate into my diet at home. The problem is I always find great deals on fish and would love to feel more confident to cook at home. Anyways I had a couple of cod fillets lying around so wanted to take the plunge. I wanted to make something unusual and not the boring old fish dish with two veggies or pasta. I was sent over a load of products from the lovely…

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…

With their first birthday fast approaching, with that I mean tomorrow, we have to seriously congratulate Kettlebell Kitchen on their huge success. Having not even been open a year, this fantastic new concept for fast food is  quickly becoming THE hot spot for healthy clean eating.

I hope they have some confetti canons ready!…

GRAND PACIFIC – SPRING GARDENS – MANCHESTER

GRAND PACIFIC – SPRING GARDENS – MANCHESTER

For a foodie Manchester is a dining heaven. Full of bustling hotspots offering delectable’s to tickle the taste buds. However last night in the prosperous area of King Street a new rival opened it doors, to give guests a taste of the far East. The Grand Pacific, the latest venture into fine dining and exotic cuisine. When we received an invite to be the first to taste what this place had to offer. My mouth was watering and tummy was already rumbling. Having seen pictures of the Grand Pineapple cocktail…

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…
