Raw Apple and Cinnamon Bars

Raw Apple and Cinnamon Bars

Now I’m not going to lie to you, I’m going to be brutally honest. I have not been to the gym in five weeks… Ok I suppose it’s technically six. There, I’ve said it, I’ve confessed. My body is so unused to movement that after…

Blueberry Breakfast Muffins

Blueberry Breakfast Muffins

Happy New Year everyone! It’s been a pretty rocky start for me, having been struck down with flu just after Christmas I then ended up in hospital over new year! It seems diabetes + flu = medical chaos , I wouldn’t recommend it! So, having…

Paleo Nut, Seed, Apple and Fig Loaf

Paleo Nut, Seed, Apple and Fig Loaf

There is nothing more comforting, especially at this time of year, than a slice of bread with a thick slathering of chocolate spread. It is the ultimate comfort food. I have worked hard on this recipe over the last few months, perfecting the texture and flavour…

Creamy Macadamia, Apple and Cinnamon Porridge

Creamy Macadamia, Apple and Cinnamon Porridge

There is nothing more comforting and delicious than a bowl of steaming porridge, especially when you know you aren’t going to end up bloated, lethargic and feeling unwell. Free from anything nasty, this is one of my favourite breakfasts, especially at Winter time as it’s…

Blueberry and Vanilla Pancakes

Blueberry and Vanilla Pancakes

There is nothing more comforting than it being the weekend, the sound of the rain outside and all the right ingredients sat in the kitchen ready to be whipped up in to something delicious. For me pancakes are the ultimate comfort food. They are light,…

Decadent Hazelnut Chocolate Butter

Decadent Hazelnut Chocolate Butter

I was never a huge fan of Nutella, for me it was always too sickly sweet and the added dairy has always left me feeling bloated and unwell. However, I do love the combination of hazelnuts and chocolate so I thought I would share my own…

Apparently it’s World Porridge Day today so I thought it would be the perfect time to share this breakfast post. Now, I don’t meet many people who don’t like chocolate- or for that matter wouldn’t choose to eat it at any given time, day or…

Sandwich Loaf

The weather has well and truly turned in the last week and although I am loving scouring the web for a new winter coat everywhere I go everyone seems to be coughing and spluttering with terrible colds… Me included. I very rarely get a cold but…

Creamy Cinnamon Cashew Nut Milk

Creamy Cinnamon Cashew Nut Milk

I have to admit, I might have a slight obsession at the moment with cashew nuts. In the last few weeks I’ve been eating them in all different forms; butter, porridge, curry, smoothies, energy balls and even milk.  Cashew nuts are so versatile, full of taste and…

Almond Nut Butter

Almond Nut Butter

Growing up my little brother used to adore peanut butter sandwiches, they were his number one choice for any meal. I could never understand why he loved it so much, the mere smell of it made my stomach churn. I will never forget going to…

Cinnamon granola with a mixed berry compote

Cinnamon granola with a mixed berry compote

Recently I have received a lot of questions about what you can eat “other than eggs” for breakfast when following a low-carb lifestyle. Well, for me I believe the options are endless! There are so many different smoothies, muffins, porridges and granola’s you can make…

It’s already the end of the week again and I have been looking forward to the weekend since Monday! It’s one of my best friend’s wedding down in the New Forest so I have my fingers and toes crossed that the sun shines for her. I…
