Have you ever wondered how you can have moments reminiscing with friend, talking about all of the vivid memories from previous years, but then some days find yourself staring into an empty room wondering why you went in there in the first place?! I don’t know about you, but I do. Or, how I can […]

Is It Important To Eat Breakfast?

Breakfast, the most important meal of the day. Right? When it comes to dietary and weight loss advice, being told to eat breakfast is probably one of the most common we get. Usually, with little reasoning too, apart from ‘it kickstarts your metabolism’ but we want to know the truth behind it and why it […]

Good And Bad Foods….Is There Such A Thing?

We’ve all heard or probably even used the term ‘bad’ for certain foods and drinks and ‘good’ for others. But, how do we know what is ‘right’ or ‘wrong’, is there a ‘good’ or ‘bad’ food? Does the meaning even exist? Here’s a short task for you. When you think of a ‘bad’ food what […]

The Basics of Nutrition

Why do we eat? We eat to fuel of course! Without food, our body can not produce an adequate amount of energy to reach the demands of the body and the body’s functions. But, if you asked most people why they eat they would probably also list reasons such as ‘to socialise’, ‘because I enjoy […]

Carrot Fritters with Poached Eggs

These carrot fritters are simply AMAZING! and as it’s National Vegetarian Week it would be rude not to share this carrot fritter recipe with you. For a great main meal serve with two poached eggs and salad, but if you want something lighter then serve with a nice salad and a Greek yoghurt dip. They […]

Spinach And Ricotta Aubergine Cannelloni

Quite a number of years ago I was suffering quite badly with my stomach when I went out for run (that’s all I’m saying about that) and I was advised by a nutritionist to minimise wheat in my diet. It set me on the quest to find alternatives to pasta and this is when I […]

How To Stay Fuller For Longer

Fuelling for the fullness! The temptation to eat more than we normally do is likely to be a lot higher right now, and to be honest its pretty damn hard to control it when we are stuck indoors with left over Easter chocolate, the kids/your partners snacks and hidden gems lurking in the cupboards and […]

Buddha Bowl Recipe

I love Buddha Bowls, they are nutritious, easy to make (essentially I just look at what I’ve got in the fridge and cupboards and create my Buddha Bowls from there) and I love the vibrant colours on the plate once you have ‘built’ your Buddha Bowl. I also think my OCD likes how each element […]

Carrot Soup and Flat Breads

This cooking from my cupboard is getting more adventurous! The other week I wrote a blog about using nutritional yeast and now this! The truth is, soups are easy – and a great way to use veg that maybe isn’t 100% at it’s best (I left the carrots in a warm utility room). The thing […]

Healthy Fruit And Nut Bar Recipe

I made these bars for the first time this week, admittedly they were taken from a weaning book for my son, but hey who cares…they’re pretty tasty and really simple to make. I got my son involved in making these with me but if you want a tidier kitchen at the end maybe stick to […]

Cooking From Your Cupboards – Nutritional Yeast

Nutritional Yeast? Unless you’re vegetarian or vegan, you have probably never come across this before. Well I have a big unopened vat of the stuff in my cupboard and vowed to find something to do with it when my husband threatened to put it on our porridge! Urgh. I’ve never used it before. The stuff […]

Lentil Curry

Yes yes, we have definitely blogged about lentil curry before – but that was when we could get fresh spinach from the shop or we had nice ingredients such as coconut milk at home! There’s going to be a large amount of making-it-up-as-we-go as it’s a little difficult to get all your desired ingredients at […]
