DITCH THE GUILT THIS EASTER

With the Easter weekend only one sleep away the first thing you have to understand is that being healthy and fit isn’t about restrictions or depriving yourself of things. Especially Easter Eggs.

COURGETTE + BACON PIE

This is a little healthy spin on an old classic. I say courgette but we all know the real name is zucchini! However to make it different to my zucchini pie recipe already on the blog which contains sweet potato too, I call this the courgette bacon pie. Sounds tasty! Quick, simple and very nutritious – you will want to bake one this week for lunches or quick dinners. You can make it with almond meal or oats depending on your dietary requirements. I used oats and it turned out a treat. Continue reading “COURGETTE + BACON PIE”

HOT BIRCHER MUESLI

There’s no denying the mornings are getting colder and darker (in London) but that’s no reason to throw in the towel with healthy and quick breakfasts. Make a batch of this bircher which will last you 4 days in the fridge and you can have it prepped and ready to eat on the run or quickly heat in the morning. That’s right heat. Hot bircher is the new HOT thing. Otherwise if you are more of a play it safe gal and don’t like change, simply eat it cold. It’s just as delicious plus the cheeky spices will keep you warm inside.
