Fruit Crumble (gluten & dairy free)

You can use any berries, freshly picked or frozen, depending on the time of the year. Blackberries are my favourite or apple & sultana. I substitute wheat flour for ground almonds, which makes the crumble so much richer. Ground almonds are slightly sweet, which is why I use chopped dates instead of sugar. I use [...]

Stir fried chard with garlic

There’s no excuse not to eat your greens at this time of year – they’re everywhere – chard, kale, spinach, asparagus, Spring greens, etc. My absolute favourite green vegetable at the moment is rainbow chard, which I will eat sautéed, steamed or thrown into salads or soups.  I had stir-fried chard this morning for breakfast [...]

Raspberry flapjack

This is like eating a portable fruit crumble.  The perfect treat for a sweet tooth; it’s dead easy to make and is sweetened naturally with the berries and dates.  Berries and oats are packed with vitamins, antioxidants as well as soluble fibre, which promote healthy gut bacteria as well as increasing feelings of fullness.  The walnuts provide omega-3 fats and antioxidants, which are good for brain and heart health.

Raw walnut cacao protein energy balls

These are a delicious treat as well as being packed full of healthy ingredients.  Naturally sweetened with dates and loaded with protein and omega 3s from the walnuts.  Raw cacao has over 40 times the antioxidants of blueberries and is the highest plant-based source of iron.  It’s full of magnesium and contains more calcium than cow’s milk.  It’s also a natural mood elevator.   A piece of this fudge provides a natural happy buzz. A word of caution! If you are sensitive to caffeine, as I am don’t eat too much in one go or too close to bedtime!

Make your own Almond Milk – it’s so worth it!

Almond milk has been used for years as a substitute for dairy milk. It is easy to buy ready made but home made tastes seriously better – so fresh, creamy and delicious. It’s also free from the stabilisers, sweeteners and emulsifiers found in most shop bought brands. It’s a great option for anyone with a [...]
