• Healthy Autumn Spiced Granola (vegan, oil free, sugar free)

    As I mentioned in my last post: autumn is undoubtedly here. I’ve even gone out and bought a thicker coat – something I managed to avoid doing for all of the cold months last year. Another clue to the turning seasons: my posts. Last week, a soup, this week, cinnamon-scented, slightly ginger-spiced vegan granola. Yep: my autumn spiced granola is here.

  • Turmeric, Carrot & Lentil Soup

    Well, I don’t know about where you live but up in Manchester, autumn has arrived with force! It came as a bit of a shock this past week, especially since I ended up in Prague on my birthday where it was 20°C and sunny, then returned to catch the edge of a hurricane. The sudden onset of wind and rain means I’m wanting hot lunches again, after a summer of salads and a few sneaky peanut butter and Marmite sandwiches. And what’s better than a delicious, flavourful turmeric, carrot and lentil soup?

  • Cherry Bakewell Overnight Oats

    Make ahead breakfasts: the saviour of busy people across the planet. On days when I’ve forgotten that I really need to wash my hair, make some lunch and buy a train ticket I am incredibly grateful for the days when at least I know I just need to grab a jar of cherry bakewell overnight oats out the fridge as I dash to the train station ticket office with my hair still wet.

  • Vegan Mocha Chocolate Flapjacks

    Flapjacks – so easy to make, but so rare to find in my house. Generally speaking, when I want something baked and chocolatey, I’ll make some kind of chocolate muffin or cupcake. But, I feel like I’ve done a lot of that lately and this time, I wanted something with the ease and convenience of a tray bake.

  • Gluten Free, Low Carb Fajitas

    Do you ever have those days where you start with something rich at breakfast, end up with something very luscious as a snack, and continue that theme on through lunch? By dinner time you’re kind of hungry, but also kind of aware that really, you don’t need a lot. That happens to me pretty often, especially at the weekend! What to do those days? Well, how about some gluten free, low carb fajitas?

  • Healthy Strawberry Cheesecake Oatmeal (vegan, gluten free)

    Do you ever have those mornings where you wake up craving a really specific flavour? Not a food, necessarily, but a taste. I had one of those mornings a few weeks ago. I was dreaming about strawberries – probably because I picked up the most delicious, sweet, strawberries the day before and we have strawberry cheesecake Oreos in our snack box – and I woke up craving strawberry cheesecake.

  • Healthy Grapefruit & Avocado Salad

    My only memory of grapefruit as a child, is that my mum would eat it when she was on a diet. She’d eat half of a grapefruit for breakfast, every day. I had no idea what it was, other than sour and apparently what was required to loose weight. Not that inspiring, right?

  • My Go-To Green Smoothie Bowl

    I love my morning oats, but sometimes I love other things too. A recent addition to my occasional home breakfasts (I eat most of them at work) is a green smoothie bowl. It took me a few tries before I settled on what has become my go-to green smoothie. The secret? Simple complexity. Simple with just a few (frozen) ingredients, complex with added superfood boosters. Ready? Let’s go.
