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 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.

It is the most simplest thing. As well as being a great healthy substitute for ice cream. The fact of using bananas is…

I am a sucker for nibbling and grazing, as well as something sweet. So I needed to try and come up with some recipes, that would sort these habits out in a healthy way. I came up with some Maca choco coco bites. I love eating coconut in the summer, it transports me to somewhere where I wish I could be.

PEANUT BUTTER NICE CREAM RECIPE

PEANUT BUTTER NICE CREAM RECIPE

Hands down this is by far the best breakfast I have ever had. Due to this being insanely indulgent, feeling so naughty but it is super healthy. We all know I love something sweet for breakfast. This one really takes the biscuit. Who knew you could eat like this for breakfast and not feel guilty about it. Yet the best thing about this one is that you can adapt it to any flavours you like. However I went along with peanut butter. Mainly because I love it. Yet also because…

CHICKPEA TOMATO AND FETA SALAD RECIPE

CHICKPEA TOMATO AND FETA SALAD RECIPE

This is by far the most easiest and tastiest summer salad you could make. I spend all summer eating and making salads and I am sick of the same old leafy base. Its boring. So I decided to whip up something different. We are a house of chickpeas and I love cooking with them. However I forget how nice they are on their own. I also forget how good chickpeas actually are for you. They contain super amounts of protein and fibre. So I thought a chickpea tomato and feta…

CHICKEN SAUSAGE CASSEROLE RECIPE

CHICKEN SAUSAGE CASSEROLE RECIPE

I have never been a massive fan of normal sausages and when me and my partner were in Spain, I found chicken sausages and instantly fell in love with them. On returning to the UK I could not find a decent chicken sausage anywhere only frankfurters, that was until I accidentally found the HECK chicken sausage. I picked out the Italia sausages which sounded super yummy infused with basil, tomatoes & mozzarella. I thought they were more worthy of a proper meal rather than a fry up, with them being low in fat we opted…
