Apple, Raisin & Blueberry Pots

I think the majority of my recipes are healthier vegan, or vegetarian versions of my childhood and this recipe is no different: apple, raisin and blueberry crumble.If you are a Brit and had school dinners at primary school, then I’m sure you’d have had some sort of crumble along with custard, as your ‘afters’ too. I loved it. Which is why I decided to make some myself. The apples I used are just standard apples from the store. Although, I can’t wait until the autumn when I can get some fresh cooking apples from my aunties next-door neighbour, to bake with. The crumble topping was taken from my vegetarian protein peach crumble squares here and modified to make it vegan. Ingredients  4 Medium Apples 1/4 Cup Raisins 1 Cup Blueberries 1 Cup Rolled Oats 1/2 Cup Coconut Flour 30g Vegan Butter (koko dairy free spread) 1/2 Cup Sweetener 2 Tbsp Maple Syrup 1 Tbsp Cinnamon Directions  Pre-heat oven to 170c (fan assisted) Blend half of the rolled oats in a food processor, to form a flour/powder, then …

Vegusto Sample Pack

………………………………………………………………………………………………………….. I’m going to start by saying that this product review will be the last review I write for my blog, for a while. While I really wanted to review the Vegusto products, I am just finding products reviews to be very time consuming at the moment and also hard to keep up with. I like to put as much detail in to a product review as I can and as I don’t benefit financially from writing these reviews, they’ve just become a bit of a pain to do. So,  I will only be mentioning products on Instagram that I  like and use, and I will include a short description of what I thought of the product and whether I liked it or not. I’m sorry if this is an inconvenience for anyone! 🙂 ……………………………………………………………………………………………………………

Full Day of Eating: Product Reviews

I love doing these full day of eating blogposts because it’s a chance for me to spam the post with photography and not have people getting annoyed with me for taking over their news feed on Instagram! Plus, it’s a chance for you all to see what I eat in a day and I know some people love that. I know I do. Breakfast – 11am I eat beans on toast probably about four times a week now I’m not counting macros and I just can’t get enough. It’s so quick and easy to throw together. I always eat my beans with onion of sorts; white, red, spring onion, they’ve all gone into my beans at some point and it’s an easier way to sneak in some more nutrition too. I ate breakfast with my sister today and we both added the Dang savoury bacon, coconut flakes to our meals. We were excited to try them because they were coconut flakes that were supposed to taste like bacon, but they were also vegan, dairy free, gluten free …

Crackin Egg Co

G How pretty are these eggs? I received them a few weeks ago from the Cracking Egg company: a company who produce brightly coloured, pre-boiled free range eggs. But, I haven’t had time to sit down and review them properly; until now. I know what you’re all thinking – how do the chickens lay such magnificent coloured eggs? I would first like to start by saying, they don’t. I think if a chicken popped one of these out in front of me, I would be very worried.  The chickens do however, lay normal colour eggs: the standard day to day, beige eggs that you can buy at the store; then the 100% natural colour is painted onto the eggs after they have been boiled.  So, what’s the point in painting the eggs? The trouble is, that when you boil a standard egg, if you don’t eat it within 2-3 days then it’s likely to go funky and stink out your fridge, and nobody wants that rotten egg smell, lingering around and offending our nostrils now …

What Does Social Media Mean to you?

A lot of people join social media for many different reasons; to interact and stay in contact with friends and family, for business purposes, blogging and fitness, etc. And it can be a very powerful tool when utilised correctly, especially from a business point of view; it just opens up so many doors and there are so many different types of social media networks to choose from.When I first signed up for Instagram about three years ago, it was a personal account. I didn’t fully understand the concept and it was far different to Facebook. I was confused. But, after a few weeks I slowly started getting in to it and eventually started adding the odd food post.  I can’t pinpoint a time when it fully became a food account, but I enjoyed Instagram far more when I first joined. I would post whatever I wanted; food, photos of my dog, my gardening skills, random objects; I loved it.  But, for the last year or so, I’ve noticed a huge change in the way people …

Cauliflower Sauce

I have seen recipes similar to this a thousand times on Pinterest and never believed that I would be making it sometime in my future. Kind of like that time I swore I would never make cauliflower rice or cauliflower mash and now I live off both of them. So I thought that it was only fair I should try the cauliflower ‘Alfredo’ sauce too. Most recipes I’ve seen call it ‘vegan cheese sauce’ and I just didn’t have the heart to call it that – if it looks like a duck and it quacks like a duck. It’s a duck. Right? Instead I decided to call my version, cauliflower sauce, as it reduces any confusion and it also doesn’t leave people with bitter disappointment, from the lack of cheese flavour. Although, this sauce was far from disappointing. I didn’t have high expectations for it either, because adding cauliflower sauce without cheese to your pasta, doesn’t exactly scream excitement now does it? But, it was good and got the job done, which was too add a …

Where Do You Get Your Protein From?

What do you do at 12.30am on a Sunday morning, when you can’t sleep? Me. I think of blogposts that I can write and then write said blogposts, even though I have numerous other blogposts that I have a.) Not finished or b.) Finished, but haven’t posted. All done while watching repeat episodes of Gogglebox. Although, my best recipe ideas are often created late at night on a hungry stomach, so hopefully this post will be just as successful on little sleep.
