Beetroot courgetti with crispy cheese

A delicious and colourful plate of food…in I promise 5 minutes! This was the result of some leftovers. Using my beetroot dip recipe which with the courgette works as a perfect sauce. I always like to add some kind of flavoured sauce to courgetti otherwise it can be slightly bland. Beetroot and cheese are such a…

Uma Retreats Treats

Here are couple of recipes from our healthy eating and fitness week Uma Retreats in Lake Como! I prepared some healthy snacks to accompany our exercise from post cardio energy balls, to protein bars for our mountain hike. A few of the recipes are listed below, the most loved was for sure the Coconut Balls, so few ingredients…

Beet Tart with Turmeric

I have made my coconut fennel tart sooo many times now I decided it was time to experiment with a new one. The base for this is slightly different, I have used quinoa flakes combined with the flour which gives a really nice chunky texture. It is really important to cook the base alone without…

Turmeric recovery smoothie

I made this smoothie today, I’ve been off work and sat at home ill, feeling fluey and full of cold. I’m not a fan of taking medicines, and I had kinda lost my appetite (great news for the waistline!! haha) so for lunch I decided to make a smoothie. One that would not only fill…

Cosy Miso Aubergine Stir Fry

This meal was unexpectedly so comforting, it really is true that the best meals are made from scrounging around in your fridge. The only fresh ingredients we used for this were the aubergines and the pomegranate, everything else was from the store cupboard. As you can probably tell from my recipes I’m a little bit…

Carrot banana and walnut loaf

Another accidental recipe. A quiet weekend at home, with not much in the fridge so I made this loaf with what I had…carrots and bananas. A kind of mash up of carrot cake and banana bread, and it actually turned out to be delicious. The carrots combined with the banana mean that it is not…

Broccoli juice

Yes you did read the title correctly…I know it sounds disgusting, thats what I thought too! But wait until you’ve tried it to judge. The combination with the fresh lemon juice makes it a really refreshing and filling juice. I made this during my homemade juice cleanse and had it for my dinner. Ok so…

Carrot cake bircher

This really tastes like you are having desert for breakfast! Sounds pretty great doesn’t it…plus of course its all healthy, no sugar or dairy. Carrot cake is definitely one of my favourites, and this tastes just like the raw cake mixture! It is best to make this in the evening and by breakfast time the…

Beet-utiful juice

  In November I decided to do my first juice cleanse…a day without food sounded tough, a few hours without food usually leaves me grumpy! But it was surprisingly easy, drinking a juice every two hours stopped me from getting hungry, although I did go to bed super early just so I didn’t think about…

Green balls

The perfect way to get a hit of superfoods and power you through your day. Even if you don’t like the taste of wheatgrass but feel like you should be eating it, this recipe makes it much easier to hide the flavour of your least favourite superfood powders, also try it with the nasty green spirulina!…

Green Superfood Smoothie Bowl

Some mornings you just want your breakfast to appear in front of you with no effort…and this recipe does just that. You can experiment by adding different fruit to the blender, but a banana base makes it thick and creamy. Its always useful to have banana frozen in chunks in your freezer so no matter…

Cashew Mylk and Cashew cream

Cashew milk is one of my favourite types of nut milk, it gives a creamy texture and is naturally sweet. The cashews have soft outer skins so if you are just making the milk you don’t need to pass it through a cloth to get rid of the bits. The milk is perfect for making…
