Vegan Keto – 3 Weeks In

Wednesday the 4th July was the weigh-in day of the 3rd week of my attempt at a Vegan Keto diet. So how’s it going I hear you ask! Are you hungry all the time? Is it working? What are your energy levels like? Are you managing to stick to it? What are you actually eating?  […]

Spiced Apple Porridge

It’s Summer. It’s scorchio (for a change). And porridge might be the last thing you fancy eating. But if you have an oat obsession like me, then porridge goes anytime. This warm spiced apple porridge is my new favourite. You can always bookmark the recipe for the cooler months. Ingredients 40g oats Milk of your […]

5 Ways With Courgettes

Ahhh the humble courgette. This seasonal bad boy of the vegetable world is not only a staple in a lot of vegetarian and vegan foods, but is also low fodmap, low carb and delicious. Spiralised, mixed with goats cheese, a pizza or pasta topping, in a martini and even in cake (I kid you not) – […]

A Vegan and the Ketogenic Diet

Kale and Lentil Salad

I’ve never been hipster or hippy enough (some would argue this) to be into kale. Sometimes I can eat it cooked. And I have hidden it in smoothies but I have just discovered a new way of eating it. I’ve been reading a lot about wilting or tenderising the kale before eating it; I thought […]

Roasted tomato soup

Carrying on with the tomato theme from last week, here is a roasted tomato soup recipe to try. I also think I said that I would share it. But I do have a confession, I don’t really like tomatoes! Not raw ones anyway. I keep eating them though convinced that one day I will like […]

Celebrating tomatoes

Apparently it’s British Tomato Week (21st-27th May) – who knew? This versatile vegetable (or is it a fruit?) is a staple in many diets, forming the base of innumerable dishes. Eaten raw, cooked, sun-dried, blended, as sauce or even drunk (bloody Mary anyone?). The list is endless. There are also more than 10,000 different varieties […]

Sweet Potato Risotto

I’ve always said I don’t like risotto. But it’s weird, when I think about it, I’m not sure I’ve ever eaten risotto. I don’t know if I’ve got it into my head that I don’t like it. Or if I have actually tried it once, didn’t like it and blocked it from my mind. With […]

Guilt Free Tiffin

As promised to our Instagram followers, here is a guilt free tiffin recipe. I was introduced to this a few weeks ago and now can’t get enough of the stuff! Of course if you eat the whole block, it’s not guilt free! It’s also dead simple to knock together; well, if like me you have most of the […]

Warm Green Vegetable Salad

The sun is finally here – for this week at least! For this food blog, I thought of spring and took inspiration from a Deliciously Ella recipe. I’ve not had asparagus for a long time (it’s not fodmap friendly), but I do love it. There really is a healthy feel about an all green vegetable salad – […]

Vegan Carbonara

I’ve just recently discovered nutritional yeast and I’m now a big fan. You can get it fortified with Vitamin B12 which often is difficult to obtain in a vegan diet.  It’s got kind of a nutty, cheesy flavour. Hence it’s use in this vegan carbonara. This may not be the complete substitute for some, but it’s […]

Vegan Comfort Food – Vegan Shepherd’s Pie

There was a conversation during my massage group on Tuesday, about the difference between a Cottage Pie and a Shepherd’s Pie. Just in case you didn’t know – it’s the meat that’s the difference. In a Shepherd’s Pie it’s lamb (shepherds watch their flocks by night!) and in a Cottage Pie it’s beef. Apparently one […]

Caribbean Rice and Beans

We had a team lunch at our neighbours the Northern Monk Brewery a few weeks ago. Inspired by their menu, I decided I would try to recreate my own Caribbean rice and beans. Most people probably think of “I’m a celebrity, get me out of here” when they hear rice and beans. But this Caribbean […]

Roasted Vegetable Soup Recipe

I know what you’re thinking; we can’t seriously be giving you a recipe for roasted vegetable soup?! Surely, you just chop up some veg, whack them in the oven, blitz them in a blender and hey presto, done. Nope. For starters, I’m not blitzing all  of the veg as I’m making a chunky soup. Secondly, […]

Protein Pancake Tuesday

Shrove Tuesday. Traditionally, a religious day preceding Ash Wednesday which marks the start of Lent. The word shrove comes from the word “Shrive”  meaning to obtain absolution for one’s sins by way of confession. After people had repented and paid penance, they would use up all fattening food in the cupboards which were not permitted during […]
