Healthy Beetroot dip – two ways!

On Wednesdays we wear pink… ummmmm actually, most days I wear grey and black much to my mums disapproval, “you’ve got your whole life to wear black” she used to say. I’m not entirely sure what she meant by this, so I’m going to eat pink and colourful food instead…does that count?! Whenever we buyContinue reading “Healthy Beetroot dip – two ways!”

Hands up if you love ice cream! If like me you love the stuff then I think you will also love this sweet and salty peanut butter sauce.

Snack Idea: Crispy Cajun Chickpeas

You’ve got to try these, seriously, they are so good and super moreish.

Maple, Pecan & Almond Granola

For some strange reason, despite loving all things breakfast I have waited until now to make homemade granola.

Mexican Inspired Quinoa Bowl

I’m a huge fan of Mexican food…pretty much anything with coriander and lime gets a thumbs up from me…add avocado into the mix and I’m in heaven! However I used to always associate this type of cuisine with heavy, carb-rich foods such as fajitas or quesedilla’s which are so yummy but not something I wouldContinue reading “Mexican Inspired Quinoa Bowl”
