This blog post contains a paid advertorial with Quaker Oats I joked recently that I should really write a blog post all about my love of porridge and it seems that the universe heard me! In all seriousness though, I wanted to write about my love of oats because they are just so versatile. When Quaker Oats got in touch, I jumped at the chance to create three of my favourite oaty breakfasts to share with you all. A lot of you will know that I eat porridge a lot, and all year round, and as we’re coming into the… View Post

I’m so excited about this blog post, as I’m not even that much of a fan of bananas, but this vegan banana bread recipe with chocolate chips creates something just so darn dreamy and delicious, so I’m typing at 100mph, wanting to share this recipe with you ASAP! First though, here’s a little story about how my love affair with vegan chocolate chip banana bread begun… I actually give thanks to the lovely Shona Vertue, who when I caught up with her for brunch last year I ate my first ever slice of banana bread and it’s had a little place… View Post

I’m a snacker. There, I’ve said it. I always have been and always will be. And there’s nothing wrong with that. Not since I swapped sugary snacks for healthy snacks a long time ago. I’m sure many of you snack like I do, whether when we’re a bit stressed, maybe you’re bored at work, or maybe you just ‘fancy’ something. Whatever the reason, I think it’s important to pick nourishing snacks that are good for our insides – please note, I’m not against chocolate, I just live by an “everything in moderation” rule and love healthy foods. Here are my… View Post

There aren’t many things I love about winter, as I’m such a sunshine and water baby, but if I could pick only a handful of things, this homemade roasted tomato and red pepper soup recipe would definitely be in there, actually any homemade soup and a warm, thick slice of bread would make it into the list. This one is so simple and is a recipe my mum has been making for years. It’s the perfect started before a Christmas dinner party or just as a healthy lunch to have throughout the colder months. I usually make around four servings… View Post

After thinking about what I’m going to write, I’ve realised that this isn’t technically a recipe, as I’m not really one for measurements! The great thing about this healthy granola recipe is that it’s really up to you as to what you like more or less of. It really is just a case of mixing it all in a large bowl together and popping it in the oven for 15mins. Easy peasy! Most granola you buy in the supermarket is packed full of added sugar, so yes they can lure you in with nuts, oats and dried fruit, but you… View Post

In the past I’ve made pancakes without eggs and even though they taste great (perfect for vegans), for me, this recipe is just that bit tastier and has the bonus that eggs give you a little boost of protein. The thing I love about breakfast food is that it’s not really exclusive to breakfast. I for one still get a bit weirded out at the thought of having dinner food for breakfast, but eggs, protein pancakes, granola, all of those sorts of things are very welcome in my day at any time. Rob and I often have pancakes as a post-workout… View Post

Ok, so I admit this isn’t technically a recipe but I wanted to go old school with my next collaborative post with British Lion Eggs. I might be a fitness blogger and love the healthy lifestyle, but that doesn’t mean I don’t eat things like bread and I love coming up with healthy sandwich ideas. My Dad has always loved an egg-mayo sandwich and used to make them for me when I was in school. Because of that, it’s pretty much always been my go-to sandwich. Nowadays I don’t eat sandwiches very often, but when I do I always go for… View Post

My followers on Instagram and Snapchat (catmeffan) will know what a fiend I am for a smoothie and that’s not something that is about to change. I used to have a green smoothie regularly, but after having it so much I just went off the taste, so have been having a berry one recently. I feel like that could be about to change again, thanks to The Good Guru Good Greens powder and this green smoothie recipe. I’ve tried many green powders in the past and I have to say that since working with The Good Guru, I have finally found… View Post

These sweet potato baked egg cups are so delicious! I have created this recipe as part of my collaboration with British Lion Eggs and it really is so simple and can be adapted in many way to add different flavours. Despite the fact that I over did my eggs a little (ooops!), they still tasted great and I plan on making them again and again. If you missed my previous egg recipe, then find out how to make my spicy kale baked eggs here. Not only are these egg cups yummy, but they also look really cool, so if you’ve got… View Post

I seriously love a good pizza. It’s by far one of my favourite meals, so even though I love healthy superfoods and colourful smoothies, nothing beats that round plate of cheesy, doughy deliciousness. As much as going to the local pizzeria is great, there’s something to be said for a healthy homemade pizza, enjoyed in the comfort of your own home. This can very easily be made as a healthy vegan pizza recipe by just removing the cheese or made for meat-lovers by adding some freshly cooked chicken. As part of my lifestyle I get to enjoy meals like this… View Post
