Warm Veggie Sausage Salad

A daily struggle for people in full time work is prepping meals for your lunch that are both healthy and tasty enough for you not to cave into buying a meal-deal or fast food.  This warm veggie sausage salad ticks both of those boxes as well as being even more delicious warmed up in the microwave to get you…

Veggie Chilli

Today’s fake-away is another of my favourite cuisines, a classic Tex-Mex dish that is both comforting and filling, whilst also staying under 500 calories with sides! This recipe is great to make up in a large batch and can easily be portioned up into food containers with some microwave rice for work lunches or a quick…

Avocado Toast with Poached Egg

Avocado toast is a huge food trend and I can’t lie I’m 100% behind it. There’s nothing better than treating yourself to a fresh and tasty breakfast, especially in these warm sunny mornings. Any time I go out for breakfast or brunch I’m searching for some avocado toast on the menu but its so easy…

Veggie Pesto Pizza

After my first week starting my new job what better way to start the weekend than with pizza. I love to make my own pizza as I can put as much or as little of whatever toppings I like on without getting charged an arm and a leg  at a takeaway! This veggie pesto pizza…

Sweet & Sour with Egg Fried Rice

Chinese used to be one of my favorite takeaways, however, once I became a vegetarian I found that the majority of takeaways were not very accommodating to vegetarians. The mix of vegetables used are usually disappointing and feel as if they’ve been in a freezer for months so I end up just having sauce and…

Beetroot Sliders

I literally can’t get enough of veggie burgers and this crispy beetroot and coriander slider recipe is no exception, especially with my creamy goats cheese dip and moreish sweet potato wedges! The entire meal comes to only 522 calories and is a great source of fibre with almost half your daily recommended intake. These are great to…

Carrot Cake

Who doesn’t love bit of cake? Carrot cake is one if mine and I know many others favourite types of cake so I thought I’d share my recipe so that you can see how it easy it is to make your own at home. It may seem like a lot of steps involved but none…

Fajitas

So I may have got a little carried away with this one… it all started with a simple idea for fajitas but then I thought I should show just how diverse this recipe can be! It all starts with a simple fajita mix, which is great with my Fajita Seasoning recipe (can be made once in bulk…

Goats Cheese & Balsamic Onion Pizza

Who doesn’t love a good pizza night? I certainly do and one of my favorite pizza’s when I fancy something a bit different to the usual is a goats cheese pizza, and at only 542 calories I  can enjoy it without feeling like I’ve ruined my healthy eating. Make yourself some dough and tomato sauce…

Fajita Spiced Veggie Burgers

These fajita spiced burgers are insane (even if I do say so myself- but I do love Mexican flavors and a bit of spice), pair them with my homemade wholemeal burger buns and coleslaw for your next fake-away Friday! You can either have a low calorie and fat veggie burger with no coating or add a crispy,…

Vegetable Madras

A healthy alternative to ordering an Indian take-away, with only 621 kcal in one portion including rice and naan!

Nutty Banana Overnight Oats

As I’ve recently started a new job, with an early start of 8am, I value every extra minute of sleep I can get. Quick breakfasts are not usually the healthiest options as cereal bars and most cereals (any that taste half decent) are full of sugar and don’t keep you full for long at all….

Raspberry & Vanilla Porridge

Today’s Sunday brunch recipe is another porridge recipe for those mornings where I need a quick high energy breakfast to keep me going throughout the day. As usual, this recipe contains one of your 5-a-day and I’ve added some lightly toasted almonds to add a crunch to the texture as well as additional protein. You…

Breakfast Pitta

I’ll be the first to admit this isn’t one of my prettiest recipes but I assure you its one of the most nutritious and incredibly tasty. A breakfast pitta is my favorite way of packing in a bunch of veggies and protein first thing to get me going for the day! It’s just a simple…

Goats Cheese Dip

If you’re a fan of goats cheese like me, then this is the dip for you. It works great as a light & fresh alternative to mayo and the distinctive goats cheese flavour works amazingly with sweet potato wedges and my beetroot sliders. All you need to do is combine the ingredients and you’re good…
