I have such a love/hate relationship with cooking. Sometimes, I could spend all day in there making something amazing and other times I want to eat a potato waffle sandwich. I am a bit of a maverick and pretty terrible at following recipes without meddling, I chuck all sorts in thinking it will improve it… Read More Vegan Recipe Boxes: A Mindful Chef Review
Cheese might be the thing I miss the most you know. Bacon is a close second, but cheese is just in all of my favourite meals and it is the thing I have found the hardest to give up. It is also the thing I have had the least luck finding a tasty substitute for…until… Read More Trying Vegan Cheese
I spend a hell of a lot of time searching for information on what is going on in the ‘vegan’ community, things like which restaurants are finally adding vegan options to their menus or which supermarket has started stocking my favourite dairy free milks. I thought it might be useful to do a little monthly ’round… Read More Vegan News Round Up – June 2017
I don’t know about you, but all I want to do as soon as it starts to get a little chilly is to face plant carbs. ALL THE CARBS. So in the interest of a warm chocolatey start to the day, let’s basically have chocolate spread on French toast all rolled up in to a… Read More Breakfast Nutella Roll Ups

It has ribbons of soft… Read More One pan, low carb super healthy fry up.
Whenever my kid is having a particularly ‘difficult’ week, I make muffins. Depending on who is grumpier I make either savoury or sweet.

There are 2 whole bananas in these and they are not too bad in terms of ingredients either so… Read More Tricking a fussy toddler: The Muffin.
Sweeping generalisation alert – All kids think chocolate is a special treat.Therefore what better way to trick healthiness into them than via the medium of chocolate. I LOVE this mousse. It is ridiculously yummy. Really easy and quick to make too – perfect right? Ingredients: 1 banana 1 avocado – shelled (not sure if that… Read More Tricking a fussy toddler – chocolate mousse
Ok, so the title sounds like a bit of a contradiction. How can peanut butter be healthy right? If you buy the natural stuff without all the sugar, salt, palm oil and other crap then it most certainly IS healthy. All nuts make pretty good nut butter, almond is my favourite but it is also… Read More Tricking a fussy toddler – peanut butter milkshake
So after a mushroomy spinach breakfast, for some reason I also fancied them for dinner! Enter risotto! The old faithful. The ONLY thing my toddler will always eat, without fail. My failsafe easy yummy meal. I think the first risotto I ever made was from Jamie Oliver’s 30 minute meal cookbook. I have slightly adapted… Read More Mushroom Madness Part 2.
Today has been a weird one. I feel like all I have eaten is a ridiculous amount of mushrooms and spinach. Breakfast: Creamy Balsamic Mushrooms on Toast with Baby Spinach Ingredients: 2 slices of bread (whatever you want to use, I used the Hovis Chia bread) 1 tablespoon of Soya Butter (or a butter/spread of your choice)… Read More Mushroom Madness Part 1.
