Another successful flavour bursting dish without nasty oils or gluten PLUS the recipe uses lots of hidden greens and is pretty damn easy. I have made this both with oat flour and flavourless protein powder from Neat Nutrition. Great way to incorporate whey protein into savoury dishes. Just make sure its Non flavoured and not vanilla !!

So my mate is newly vegan and was coming over for dinner. I suggested I would whip up something using her favourite ingredient… coconut, and of course keep it vegan. Continue reading “VEGAN SPIRULINA PROTEIN BALLS”
Scones …. mmmm. Who doesn’t love a classic scone? I whipped these up in 20 minutes from start to mouth and they are top top! We don’t have sugar in the house at all so naturally they are sugar FREE!!
Sunday night and you are craving take away? I get it. You don’t have much in the fridge, you don’t have much energy and you can’t be bothered cooking anything other than scrambled eggs… cook this pad Thai in ten minutes instead!! Continue reading “PAD THAI IN TEN”
Came home the other night craving carbonara. Whipped this ‘clean’ version up in no time. Mum used to make a cheesy mac for us when we were little and I remember the secret ingredients being tomato paste and worcestershire sauce. Trust me; its secret!
I went to Beany Green in Paddington for brunch (on my top 5 London smashed avo’s post >> here) and it was phenom.com. I thought that I would recreate it, so this morning did exactly just that. I winged it, as usual, and they turned out a treat. Super filling and wholesome, healthy with minimal ingredients and maximum taste. Do yourself a favour or woo someone with your breakfast skills.

Super easy and pretty quick take on a noodle laksa which I whipped up in no time last night. You might even have all the ingredients in your pantry/fridge. Continue reading “CHICKEN PUMPKIN LAKSA”
London is known for its vast busy city but also its gorgeous parks and green spaces. With Hyde Park, Green Park and Regents Park in the city center just to name a few, there is always a chance to get your dose of mother nature just a skip hop and jump away from the main roads and tube stations.

The other day I caught myself out by saying “oooo if you are feeling sick eat white foods… they are apparently good for your immune system” and then followed by listing off all of the white coloured foods I could think of… Onion, garlic, mushrooms, leeks, cauliflower… and then I stopped realising that I had only ‘heard’ this once and had NO IDEA why or if it was true.
So here is the dirt behind why certain food colours mean certain things to our body and why.
WHITE = IMMUNITY (beta-glucans); Immune system. Ok so I was right here. White foods activate our natural killer cells and reduce cancer risk whilst strengthening our immune systems
RED = HEART (lycopene); improves heart and blood health, supports joints and increases circulation.
ORANGE = VISION (beta-carotene); boosts eye and skin health and may decrease your risk of developing cancer
YELLOW = BEAUTY (carotenoids); stimulates digestion and promotes collagen growth for radiant youthful skin and strong bones
BLUE/PURPLE = AGING (anthocyanins); powerful healing antioxidants for retinal health and vision, assisting with healthy aging and improving memory
GREEN = DETOXING (chlorophyll); powerful detoxers, improves oxygenation and normalises digestion
So now when mum says “eat your greens” you can turn around and say “but what about my reds and whites too?”
