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…

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!

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

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. Those lovely overripe squidgy bananas, that I get to whisk them into a nice comforting Wintery bake. Recently I was offered to choose a box of products from TheFoodMarket.com. 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…

EASY SIMPLE BREAKFAST FRITTATA

EASY SIMPLE BREAKFAST FRITTATA

Its a Sunday. One of those days where there is not much left in the cupboards, and a big shop is due. Its funny that I always end up making better meals when I just have to bang some stuff together. 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…

CARROT CAKE NICE CREAM RECIPE

CARROT CAKE NICE CREAM RECIPE

I have always been a sucker for ice cream. That smooth, cold creaminess has always got to me. I always have fond memories of being able to create these super glorious sundaes. Made with my nana’s fresh fruit, then again grandparents always let you over indulge. However now I am on a healthy streak I have become a huge fan of nice cream. I mean who wouldn’t. It is the most simplest thing. As well as being a great healthy substitute for ice cream. The fact of using bananas is…

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…

SMOKED PAPRIKA HAKE WITH BEANS AND SPINACH

Fish is one of my favourite things to eat. Its light, its fresh and it have amazing health benefits. Fish to me is the best when I am in the middle of a fitness regime. Its provides a nutritious and filling dinner or a nice light lunch. There are so many different fishes out there and so much you can do with it. For some reason I have always been scared about making fish. I am not sure why, maybe I am worried about overcooking or under cooking. I also dont…
