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 […]

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 […]

Crispy Ginger and Sesame Tofu

If you haven’t already guessed based on previous posts, I love tofu. It is a staple in my household. As a vegan it is a great source of protein. Of course there are lots of varieties of tofu out there; but you don’t need to buy pre-flavoured stuff if you can flavour it right. This […]

Quinoa For Breakfast

I know what you’re thinking. Why is Kate obsessed with breakfast? The last food blog I wrote was about oats, now quinoa. To be fair, I’d eat my oats recipe for pudding too, not just breakfast! The truth of the matter is that I’m struggling with food at the moment. My IBS is particularly bad. […]

Get Toned With Tuna

In the name of protein variety, I’ve been experimenting with alternatives to the same old chicken breast. As I delve deeper into incorporating seafood into my diet, I’ve settled upon a regular daily servings of either prawns or tuna. Whilst tuna is a pretty staple fish source, it’s fun to experiment with different ways of […]

Creamy Overnight Oats

Ok, I know what you’re thinking – I’m a little late to the party here. Ieuan posted a blog about overnight oats ages ago (and I’ve borrowed his picture here!). Emily is always blogging about how much she loves porridge. Joe uses oats as a pre-workout boost. And here I am, finally getting on board! […]

All About Beans

This week’s blog comes to you courtesy of a member’s suggestion (thank you, Lee). It’s all about beans. I took the time to investigate our favourite beans and compared their nutritional contents.  Beans are a great source of protein, especially for non-meat eaters. They also have high fibre levels, B-vitamins as well as other nutrients essential […]

Thai Prawn Stir Fry

When I think about making a protein-rich meal to have after my workout or for tea, my mind usually wanders to the popular sources such as chicken and beef. In my quest to write my food blog I decided to try something different. This is something that I haven’t really cooked with before. Here’s my […]

Sri Lankan Jackfruit

I’m not sure whether I should call this Sri Lankan Jackfruit or a Curried Jackfruit to be honest. I’ve never had proper Sri Lankan food but I’ve used a Sri Lankan spice mix so I’m going with that! I’m still experimenting with Jackfruit, and the truth be told, I haven’t moved on much since my […]

Chorizo Style Beans

I’ve never actually had chorizo. I turned veggie before it became “a thing”. I’m also not a big “fake meat” fan; it’s generally processed and tastes like plastic. However, having it once every so often is a great way of getting some protein in my diet. There’s been a whole new vegan range from Iceland […]
