Secondly, […]

The word shrove comes from the word “Shrive”  meaning to obtain absolution for one’s sins by way of confession.

Time is the biggest killer of my love for cooking and trying new recipes. If I had it all my way I would experimenting and trying new foods all the time, unfortunately I don’t prioritise this as highly as I should. I still manage to eat relatively well, but it usually easy meals such as […]

What Does a Balanced Diet Look Like?

When the Fodmap Vegan met the Buddha Bowl!

I currently follow so many fodmap and vegans on instagram, whose food is so beautifully presented, that I spend a lot of my time hungry! One thing I have noticed however, is that this delicious looking food is predominantly presented in a bowl. Aka a Buddha Bowl. I started to ask myself, is this what a Buddha Bowl […]

Aubergine, Spinach & Lentil Bolognese Recipe

I’ve got to say a massive thank you Jo Stepaniak (low-Fodmap and Vegan) for this lentil bolognese recipe! Whilst I’m currently finding it hard to recognise anything tomato and aubergine based as not being a form of Ratatouille; I had to give this Aubergine, Spinach and Lentil Bolognese recipe a go because it doesn’t contain courgette or […]

Food Trackers – Good or Bad?
