• 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.

  • Lemon Drizzle Energy Balls (Nakd Copycat!)

    Hi my name’s Luci and I like to snack. There, I said it. If I can’t get my hands on an apple (it’s a real addiction at this point..) then I quite like Nakd bars – especially the “Crunch” ones but recently, also their new Lemon Drizzle bar. It’s like an actual lemon drizzle cake but in a bar. Made of nuts! But, they’re really hard to find (and also.. not cheap)! Ergo, I made my own lemon drizzle energy balls instead. You could easily shape them into bars if you prefer too.

  • Love it or Hate it, it’s Marmite Porridge

    You know what they say about Marmite… you’re either going to love it, or hate it. I’m a “love it” kind of girl. I dip veggies in it. I spread it on toast, on it’s own. I spread it on toast with peanut butter. I put it into oats.

    Wait, what?

  • Mini Peanut Butter Shortbread Cookies (gluten free , vegan)

    Last week, I really wanted some cookies. I know what started it – it wasn’t a random craving. At work there is a tin full of biscuits (similar to cookies, for the Americans among you but smaller, and usually with more of a crisp bite). The problem, as I’m sure you can imagine, was that I couldn’t have any! So there I was, 3pm, hankering for a biscuit with my decaf coffee and denied. Utter dismay! That evening I set about making my first batch of mini delights: these mini peanut butter shortbread cookies!

  • Homemade Vegan Shepherd’s Pie

    Yes, I know. Meatless shepherd’s pie isn’t shepherds pie BUT if I tell my mum or grandma I am making ‘shepherdess pie’ I can just picture the odd look they’ll give me. And, really, this is the pie my mum used to regularly serve for a weeknight tea. It’s got the baked beans and everything! Baked beans in shepherd’s pie seems to be relatively common among mums in England, and yet every recipe I found online neglected to add them. Perhaps I’m making some massive faux pas but… there’s beans in my vegan shepherds pie and there’s no going back now.
