SALTED CARAMEL CUPCAKES WITH POPCORN SHED *

SALTED CARAMEL CUPCAKES WITH POPCORN SHED *

A few weeks back you would have watched me make the most delicious cupcakes inspired by Popcorn Shed’s gourmet flavours. Yes, those salted caramel popcorn cakes that made you want to lick you screen! I love being in the kitchen and find baking really therapeutic and calming so it doesn’t take much for me to get the whisk out. One thing I used to love was my nana’s fairy cakes but instead of butter icing I thought I could make them far more indulgent by filling them with sticky salted…

GARLIC CASHEW CHICKEN

GARLIC CASHEW CHICKEN

As I’ve been trying to get healthier recently, I am forever seeking some quick, tasty, healthy meals to cook up once I get home. Forcing myself for a run in the morning before placement meaning I can get home, cook and actually relax in an evening. However I don’t want to use all that time I’ve freed up cooking. I love cooking but so love relaxing too. When I get Thai or Chinese I love having chicken with cashews, so thought I could probably make something pretty similar at home and…

ON THE GO MATCHA GUMMIES *

I am always on the go and forever searching for new ways to get that all needed energy boost! One that’s not full of rubbish, loaded with sugar or high in carbs! One thing that always worked as an energy booster for me, was a shot of matcha before the gym! I could run for hours! Indigo Herbs sent me some goodies and I was inspired to try my hand at some homemade matcha gummies – this way I could get me sweet fix and an energy boost at the…

SPRING PRAWN SALAD

SPRING PRAWN SALAD

The weather is brightening up which means when it comes to food there is always one thing on the top of my list… salad. Yep that’s right – those people who say salads are boring, are seriously just not doing it right. I love a good ol’ leafy green on my plate! I mean honestly salad is made for sunny days especially my spring prawn salad. This month I’ve been big on meal prep – so want to save money for all of the good things in life and buying…

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…

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…

HEALTHY BOWL CAKE RECIPE

HEALTHY BOWL CAKE RECIPE

The other week  I mixed up some warm banana chocolate proats, and boy it was good. I thought the combantion of warm banana flavour flowing through my oats was divine. I made these oats in the pan as I am old fashioned like that. However I got the inspo from Rachel over at Healthy&Psyched who popped hers in the microwave. This got me thinking about this whole mug cake faze. If you could whip up a mug cake in the microwave, and banana oats in the microwave. Then maybe if…
