Vegan Banana Bread

It’s fair to say that in the first lockdown, banana bread became a thing. In fact, I’m not sure I know anyone who didn’t at least have a go at making it! Now I’m not a massive fan of bananas – unless they are in shakes or cake! So today’s recipe is a vegan banana […]

3 Ways With Sprouts!

Ahhh the marmite of vegetables. I personally LOVE brussel sprouts. And let’s face it, what’s not to love – these high in nutrients (they contain vitamins A, C and K, magnesium, fiber and phosphorus), low in calorie (around 28 calories in half a cup), mini cabbage look-a-likes really do pack a healthy punch. Whether you […]

How to go more Plant-Based

Over lockdown (the first one!) I completed a Vegetarian and Vegan Nutrition Diploma online. I appreciate that this may seem a strange choice given that we have many vegetarians in the team and I have been vegan for 26 years, but I’m always open to new learning!

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 […]
