REJUVENATING CHERRY CHOCOLATE BREAKFAST MUFFINS WITH ONE EARTH

However now I am back in the office and I gym it before work I must have my morning meal! Unfortunately I can not head home and whip up myself a tasty omelette. Therefore I love to get experimental wit my breakfast, so I was thrilled to receive a new ingredient to play with One Earth Blends. I opted for…

GARLIC CASHEW CHICKEN

GARLIC CASHEW CHICKEN

As I have been smashing the gym recently, I have forever been seeking some quick, tasty, healthy meals to cook up once I get home. I have forced myself to the gym in the morning before work, 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…

HEALTHY HARISSA CHICKEN

HEALTHY HARISSA CHICKEN

Whipping a tasty healthy meal together is not as hard or as daunting as it may seem. There is always countless meal ideas flying around, however many contain some sort of fancy ingredient or piece of equipment. I want something that I can pull out of the fridge and throw together in 30 minutes, but still have flavour! Don’t get me wrong I love a good salad every now and then but I enjoy something that is going to fill me up for the evening. In my kitchen there is…

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.

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…

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…

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.

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…
