FISH TACOS USING SMOKED BASA

FISH TACOS USING SMOKED BASA

I am a huge lover of fish and try to incorporate it into my diet as much as possible. Whenever I go out for dinner it will always be my dish of choice. However I have always battled with fish, as I discussed with my papa its not an easy ingredient to work with. I have already brought you dishes using hake, sea bass and lemon sole. I thought it was time for a another fish dish. However this time I wanted to spice things up a bit, make the…

ALMOND BUTTER BANANA CAKE RECIPE

The one great thing about going away for a few days is that you come back to banana perfect for baking with.

An online marketplace for natural and organic food that is made and sold by small, independent merchants. Within this box I received a lovely tub of Pip and Nut Almond butter. Nut butters are my fave. So what better…

I admit a frittata is not hard. However when I have a fridge full of food, something this simple is never thought of! Thats probably why I enjoyed it more as it has literally been months since I ate a good frittata. As I said I didnt have much…

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…

WARM BANANA CHOCOLATE PROATS

WARM BANANA CHOCOLATE PROATS

Its that time of year to swap the chilly fruit and yogurt for a big bowl of warm and comforting oats. No lie I used to hate oats for breakfast. I found them overfilling and cloggy. I think I just couldnt make them right. However now I have rekindled my love for a cosy bowl of porridge. I think I just needed to jazz them up a bit. Make them more tastier than the beige bowl I would normally stare at.  Also really oats are the best thing to start…
