A favourite of mine lately and a classic combination when it comes to baking – Cherry Bakewell. I had every intention of making a cherry bakewell pie, when I purchased the almond extract a few months ago. However, my efforts to avoid creating anything with more steps than a pavement, are quite resilient. Continue reading “Cherry Bakewell Chia Porridge”
A few years ago I fell in love with gardening. I grew everything from chilli peppers, courgettes and herbs; to pak choi lettuce and spaghetti squash. It was an effort and a lot of hardwork, which was made harder by the fact that I had to use plant pots to grow my crops. Nonetheless, I persevered and nurtured my plants like a new mother and received an abundance of squash and vegetables that Summer.

One of the most popular chocolate treats today are peanut butter cups. They are highly addictive to many peanut butter lovers out there and I don’t blame them. As a vegetarian I loved them too and I would never pass an opportunity to stick them on my oats or eat them as they were. Continue reading “Higher Protein Peanut Butter Cups”
For a while now, I have been craving a big bowl of ramen noodles with copious amounts of soy sauce and broth for dipping, accompanied with a nice wedge of crusty ‘buttered’ bread – it’s weird because I’ve never actually had ramen before. So, I can only assume that I’ve actually been craving what I grew up on and that’s instant noodles. Continue reading “One-Pot Vegan Ramen.”
I don’t really enjoy porridge that much anymore. I think it’s because I ate it every morning for breakfast, for the best part of two years, when I was a vegetarian and I just slowly got tired of it. Now, I crave savoury food for breakfast and I try my best to keep it as interesting as possible, so that I don’t get bored or fed up of eating the same foods over and over again: like I did with porridge. Continue reading “Thick, Gooey Chocolate Chip Porridge.”
Being welsh, you would expect me to know better. You’d expect me to want to re-create traditional Welsh recipes and make them vegan and you’d likely expect them to still be tasty and delicious -right? For the most part I do try. But sometimes I get it wrong. Take last year for example. Last year I made a massive faux-par and I turned a traditional welsh cake into a bloody travesty – I tried to make it healthier, vegan, low carb, low-fat and also gluten free – the outcome: less than impressive. I’m still reeling today at my failed attempts. Continue reading “Traditional Welsh Cakes.”
If you scroll aimlessly through social media: whether it be Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter; you will likely fall on a post where some fitness freak is spouting tosh about finding balance in their life and everyone should do this, that, and the other to achieve it too. That’s great. Finding balance in life is an incredible thing and it has truly changed me – my personality, my outlook on life, and everything that is involved with the fitness world. Continue reading “What It’s Like To Truly Have Balance: Life After E.D.”
So, it is veganuary: the month where thousands of people take on the vegan diet for a month as a challenge for themselves. Some people go back to their normal way of eating after the month has ended and others decide to continue the vegan lifestyle, whether it’s just for a couple more months or for life. So, I thought now would be a good time as any to share this post, which I wrote back in the summer, as it was something which got me thinking -is there such a thing as cruelty-free eggs?
