Simply delicious Vegan Breakfast ideas

After nearly two months of eating a plant-based diet I thought I would share my favourite vegan breakfast recipes so far. I’ve really enjoyed trying different recipes but it hasn’t always gone well. I tried quite a few vegan pancake recipes that really didn’t work! I had a particular disaster making vegan ‘crepes’ that I just…

Pip & Nut *Reviews-Cookbook-Recipes*

Are you a nut butter lover? Then you need to read this! Plus, I’ve also got some amazing recipes to share from the new Pip & Nut Cookbook. I came across Pip& Nut when I was looking for snacks for my ‘Healthy Snack Boxes’. I was interested in their squeeze packs and thought these would…

Crab and Prawn Linguine

  Just over a month to go and we will be changing seasons! This week we had some nice sunny days that made me long for Spring. I’m looking forward to going outside without hunting down everyone’s hat, scarves and gloves. The gloves are the worst, we have lost so many the kids have had to wear odd gloves on…

Healthy 3 Ingredient Cookie

These are the easiest cookies ever as you only need three ingredients; Oats, Banana and chocolate chips. You could even make them for babies from 6 months old, just omit the chocolate chips. I made these chocolate chip cookies again the other day (with the help of my two year old) , as I quickly needed to prepare a after…

Pear Turnovers

September is a special month for us now as it’s my little boy’s birthday (he just turned two) but this year has also brought a lot of change: the start of school for my (big) girl and my youngest has also just started going to playgroup which means a bit more time for myself. Autumn also brings a lot…

Blackcurrant & Almond cake

I think this cake looks quite impressive but it’s in fact really easy and quick to prepare. It’s one of those recipes that I keep making again and again so I just had to share it! I make it with blackcurrant as I get loads at this time of year from my allotment but you could…

It only just came out on 12th May and you can win yourself a free copy! (To enter the competition all you need to do is comment…

Lentil Spaghetti bolognese

Cooking this lentil spaghetti for dinner today made me reflect on how my life has changed in the last five years. Life couldn’t be more different. We have moved from a busy London to ‘the countryside’ with the addition of two children who have become the centre of my world. One thing that hasn’t changed so much…

Avocado, Tuna, Sweetcorn & Cheddar Quesadilla

Right now is such a nice time with the kids. My 3 1/2 year old has grown up enough that I can have a conversation with her, she asks questions, wants to learn & help but still retains a cute innocence. My 18 month old is just starting to talk and hasn’t quite got to the tantrum…

Healthy Granola

I had planned to post this recipe just before Christmas as I thought this would be the kind of breakfast I would love to wake up to on Christmas day. We were away staying with family and in my head I thought I might make a batch of this granola to take with us and…

Creamy Courgette & Coconut Soup

Every year I seem to plant way too many courgettes. I don’t know why I do it, I think I just forget how much each plant produces and I like to have different varieties. So, I always have to try to think of new ways to use my courgettes. This year, one of my favourite recipes…

Almond, Honey & Blueberry Overnight Oats

I don’t know what mornings are like in your household but if they are anything like ours, they are often hectic with trying to shower, get everyone dressed, fed and ready to go out & start the day. Breakfast with my two year old daughter seems to take forever at the moment! She hardly ever…
