Coconut Strawberry Smoothie Recipe

Coconut Strawberry Smoothie

For the longest time, breakfast was my favourite ever meal of the day. It used to be *the only thing* that would get me out of bed. I'd be so excited to dig into a bowl of muesli or boiled eggs and a hot cup of tea. These days, it's all gone the other way. I feel like the childhood magic of breakfast has worn off, and I've finally grown-up. It's a bit strange but I can hardly look cereal, porridge or cute little freshly boiled eggs in the morning and have to literally force myself to eat something. Here's where [...]
Yummy healthy cookies covered in dark chocolate!

Rooibos Matcha Cacao Cookies

Lately I've had the baking bug and finally got round to making some healthy sweet treats. I don't know why but the last few weeks I've had the munchies really bad especially at work. Healthy bars and packaged snacks from the supermarket aren't cheap so I decided to make my own! These Rooibos Matcha Cacao Cookies are so so so simple to make, you can whip them up the night before work ready to take for tea break. Even better they are good for you and filling - one or two cookies mid-morning keeps embarrassing tummy rumbles at bay until lunch. The [...]
Raw chocolate snack bars

Healthy Raw Chocolate Snack Bars

Firstly, hello I'm still alive! It's been a bit quiet on here lately and it's mostly been down to starting a new job. I always find starting a new job rather stressful, even when I'm trying my hardest not to. I've generally been feeling rather rubbish which hasn't helped. Anyway I decided to try and help myself by eating properly. Healthy Energy I am one of those people that will not eat when stressed so I've lost a little weight. I wanted something wholesome yet high-energy to snack on at work to counteract this, packed full of protein and definitely [...]
A pitcher of good ol' homemade lemonade!

Healthy Honey Mint Lemonade

Summer BBQs and picnics in the park or on the beach aren't the same without a delicious ice-cold and refreshing pitcher of lovingly-made fresh lemonade: and I'm not talking about that fizzy stuff from the supermarket! If you haven't tried homemade traditional lemonade then fear not, because it is actually very easy to concoct and only takes 15 minutes. A tasty treat, I've been whipping up lots of this summertime drink to cool down in this delightful hot sunny weather. Healthy Honey Mint Lemonade Many recipes I have found for homemade lemonade, including a few on the BBC Good Food [...]
Chocolate, strawberry and blueberry porridge

Chocolate Strawberry Blueberry Porridge

This recipe is for my fellow chocolate lovers! I am a big chocolate fan and definitely love sweet breakfasts over savoury: this is the result of my personal mission to create a healthy chocolate breakfast option to substitute my Coco Pops addiction. I actually devised this about three years ago and thought it was about time I shared this mind-blowing recipe with the world! As I'm absolutely not a morning person whatsoever, breakfast has to be simple and delicious to get me out of bed but quick to make to fit into my mad morning rush. This is my favourite healthy and filling go-to breakfast [...]
Creating the Best Smoothie Ever

Green Kale Smoothies

Tried cooking or incorporating kale into your diet but dislike the taste or texture? This is the method for you! Since personally failing miserably to make kale edible on it's own, I have discovered the only way I could ever love kale was to liquidise it and mask any trace of it's bitter taste with a bunch of yummy fruits and juice to transform it into seriously awesome. Why We Need to Make Kale Edible Hailed as a superfood, kale has become a recently popular vegetable for a good reason. An excellent source of vitamins A, C and K, this [...]
