This yummy sweet potato recipe is one of my favourite healthy meals, because not only is it extremely delicious and the perfect warmer for the cold weather, but it’s just so easy to make. This is my go-to lunch or dinner when I’m not cooking for Rob too, as it’s great for an individual portion. I can have the potato cooking in the oven while I get on with my work or do a bit of yoga, which is great for me. INGREDIENTS: 1 x medium sized sweet potato (or large if you’re super hungry!) 1 x small red onion 1/2 x bell… View Post

Last month I went along to an event with AO Life and Naturally Sassy, where we made these delicious Cheeseless ‘Cheezy’ Tomato Quesadillas, which I have to admit I demolished about three of! Whilst demonstrating how to make the ‘cheese’ sauce, Sassy used The Boss super blender from Sage Appliances and at that moment I decided it was time to turn my back on my £25 Russell Hobbs blender (which has been a wonderful kitchen companion) and get The Boss in my life. The lovely team over at Sage Appliances very kindly sent me one, so to test out The… View Post

A mug of tea and a cookie on the sofa pretty much sums up a perfect evening in my book and now it’s even better, as these healthy cookies are so damn delicious. I no longer crave sugary and greasy cookies, which is such a great feeling. These cookies are filling and sweet, making them the perfect snack…. AND, as there are no nasties in them, you could even enjoy one for breakfast if you’re in a rush. INGREDIENTS 2 large ripe bananas 3 heaped tablespoons cashew butter 1 tablespoon coconut oil (I used Vita Coconut Oil) 2 tablespoons manuka honey… View Post

This is my go-to healthy flapjack recipe for a treat that isn’t full of sugar. When Rob hasn’t eaten the whole batch in one go, I use these as a sweet treat after dinner or even a post-workout snack if I’m on the go. They’re so quick and easy to make, meaning that you can even rustle them up in the morning before a hectic day… If you’re willing to get up about 20-minutes earlier than normal that is! This recipe is inspired by Deliciously Ella’s one, but I’ve made a few changes to make it suit my tastebuds a little… View Post

I make a green smoothie for breakfast every morning, but until this weekend I hadn’t really thought about trying a smoothie bowl for heathy chocolate pudding purposes. Like everyone else, I get cravings for a sweet treat after dinner sometimes, so this is my new saviour… meet your new healthy chocolate pudding! If you’re wondering where the chocolate taste comes from, it’s the cacao ingredient. Raw cacao is made by cold-pressing un-roasted cacoa beans. The process keeps the living enzymes in the cacoa and removes the fat (cacao butter). Unlike cocoa powder, which is raw cacao that’s been roasted at high… View Post

You may have seen on my Instagram a couple of weeks ago that I went paddle boarding with Nike at the London Aquatics Centre and it was awesome! It was so great seeing lots of friendly faces from the Sark Island trip last year. Anyway, before we took to the water, the lovely Zoe Stirling (CPRESS Juice Nutritionist) shared her favourite healthy snack recipe. Nike really do think of everything! The recipe for Zoe’s protein balls couldn’t be easier and are perfect to give your body what it needs after exercise. Here’s how to make 3 balls: 1 tablespoon hemp… View Post

Once again the news is full of stories about cutting sugar for a healthier, balanced lifestyle. This is something I’m totally on board with and one of my biggest bugbears is cereal and how some of the big brands can get away with advertising health, when in actual fact the products are full of sugar. I’m going to share with you a few healthy breakfast ideas. I was the same as any other child; my parents bought Coco Pops, Special K, Crunchy Nut Cornflakes because, well, we wanted it and back then they were non-the-wiser about the sugar content. Plus,… View Post

Before I get into the details of this quick & easy chia seed pudding recipe, I wanted to go through some of the benefits of these little wonder seeds. No doubt you’ve heard people talking about chia seed pudding and have seen photos of the gooey mixture, but let’s just take a moment to appreciate it. Two tablespoons of chia seeds provide approximately 4g of protein, 5g of Omega 3 fatty acids (food for your brain), 250mg of calcium (for luscious hair and strong nails) and 10g of fibre. And if that hasn’t persuaded you, chia seeds are said to have… View Post

Readers of my blog will know that I love my morning green smoothie and I’m not sure anything will ever be able to take its place, BUT on Christmas Day I’ve decided to have this little tasty, gluten free treat for brunch! It kind of tastes bit like gingerbread! 1/2 Zico Coconut Water 1/2 cup homemade almond milk 1 and 1/2 bananas (it’s best to freeze them and then let them thaw slightly before you make your smoothie – this will make it nice and cold) 1 and 1/2 teaspoon fresh, grated ginger 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon 1 teaspoon molasses 1… View Post
