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…

Apple and Cinnamon Porridge

Another of my quick day-to-day porridge recipes. Although I normally just use fruit to sweeten my porridge this one needs a lil’ extra help from the honey (or vegan alternative) as the sugar doesn’t diffuse out of the apple chunks as well as other fruit but that means you get juicy chunks of apple to…

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…

Guacamole

No Tex-Mex would be complete without the vibrant, creamy, scrumptious dip that is guacamole. Made from nutrient-dense avocados which contain omega-3 fatty acids (the good fats), vitamins, minerals and fibre. I love spicy food so this recipe has a bit of kick to it – if you don’t like spice (or just want it a…

I’ve used black beans in my recipe as I love the earthiness and colour of them in contrast to the colourful…

Fajita Seasoning

Soooooo much money is wasted buying sachets of fajita spice mix or ‘fajita kits’ when its the easiest thing in the world to just do it yourself! This is a very simple recipe thrown together using some basic store cupboard spices and even if you don’t have the spices already I promise you it’ll work…

Veggie Full English

For this Sunday brunch, the recipe is more of an assembly job than cooking all out from scratch. So when I’m hungover and craving a full-English this is my go-to as it only takes about 20 minutes to prepare, is a great source of protein and is less than 500 calories! Serves 1 Ingredients 1…

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…
