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”
Baked beans are a staple in my diet these days and I didn’t actually start liking them until around three years ago. Now, I eat them most days and I don’t care what time of the day it is. Continue reading “Spicy, Smoky Beans”
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?
I created quite a few recipes for Christmas last year and I enjoyed every minute of it. When I first started my Instagram page and blog two years ago, I never went out of my way to create recipes to share. I made them because I was either craving the food at the time or wanting to try something different to mix up my diet and if it was good, then I’d post the recipe here. I had a lot of fun last year and I couldn’t wait to get started on writing more recipes this year. Continue reading “Bacon Wrapped Roast with Sage & Apple Stuffing”
Now I’m sure most of us would agree that it’s incredibly important to be healthy right? That’s kind of a no-brainer.
But what happens when we focus so much on eating the “right” foods and doing the “right” workouts, to the point where we are extremely stressed out about what we put in our mouths and how often we workout.
You see there is so much more to health than just food, exercise, and our physical body. Health includes ALL kinds of health – physical health, mental health, emotional health, and spiritual health. However, most people now-a-days only focus purely on the physical side: trying to cut back on their calories, restricting certain macronutrients, while spending hours every single day “killing” it at the gym.

I posted a similar avocado on toast recipe not so long ago, but this whole combination is my go-to meal, especially if I’m after more fats and protein. Sometimes i’ll only have the chickpea version and other times I will only have the tomato version, and when I’m feeling especially creative, i’ll go for both. I love it. It’s filling, full of fats, protein and omegas, and it’s good for you. Continue reading “Avocado on Toast with all the Toppings.”
I’ve always wanted to try and make my own nut butters. It started four years ago when I first started to lose weight – I became obsessed with everything coconut and coconut butter was something that I really wanted to make. Next thing you know, my blender is spitting and spatting, and it gave up the ghost – too weak to handle the heat. Continue reading “Chocolate Crack Cashew Butter”
It took me a while to name this sandwich – obviously I didn’t want to name it after an animal. Plus, it’s made from vegetables instead of flesh, so it tastes nothing like pulled pork. However, while I was writing the recipe for this spicy BBQ slaw, my intention was to recreate a ‘pulled pork’ style meal which was slow-roasted in BBQ sauce. But, of course, without the death. Continue reading “Shredded BBQ Slaw Slider”
I don’t know if this is only a British thing, but as a Brit I can say that we do love our custard here. It was a main condiment, for me, as a child and I would slather it over all of my Nannas’, homemade pies and tarts.
After I went vegan, I started to crave apple crumble and custard all the time and I quickly started to feel jealously towards my younger-self, who would hungrily pour it over everything. Continue reading “Basic Vegan Custard”
