Hello everyone, I hope you've had a great weekend. It's been a weekend of lots of eating for me with a food workshop on Saturday, Father's Day dinner on Sunday and my husband's birthday yesterday. It's been a lovely time with family but I'm looking forward to some healthy eating for the rest of the week now all the celebrations are over! Today I thought I'd share some super simple plant based swaps for anyone who feels overwhelmed by the thought of switching to a plant based diet. There's so...

Happy hump day to you all. It's been a while since my last post and life has been busy but here I am today sharing with you my first experience of cooking with Miso because I think it's pretty awesome stuff!! For those of you wondering what the fudge is Miso, I'm about to share with you why you want to get your hands on some and start using it. For my first recipe I decided to make something pretty simple and opted for a vegetable and noodle soup.

Good evening everyone, Today I am going to be talking about my favourite vegetables, which are THE greens. I love adding greens to my dishes but it has to be quick & easy. I'm going to focus on the greens I use regularly and always have in the fridge/freezer. There are many others, which I eat when I am out and about but they're not necessarily in my fridge every week. These 3 are my favourite and I find them very easy to make tasty and appealing. 1. Spinach 2. Kale 3. Broccoli Below I've...

As it's now Tuesday and I'm thinking about what to make for the rest of this week, I thought I'd share 3 of my 'go-to' week night dinner recipes. These are all plant based and tasty but nutritious dinners that I make on a regular basis. The shepherd's pie is also one that my son will eat (HALLELUJAH). Two of the recipes are from Jamie Oliver and the last one is from Deliciously Ella. I like these because they require some ingredients that overlap and you don't need loads of fancy things to make...

Being a Scottish lass and having ALWAYS loved porridge, combined with the freezing weather we've experienced due to the Beast from the East, I've decided it's time to talk about our native breakfast again. It's warm, nutritious and the perfect breakie that can be tailored to individual tastes and enjoyed by the whole family!! A pimped version of our good Scottish staple has been tipped as one of the most popular foods trends of 2018. I may be biased but I am not surprised. The restaurant...

I am the GRANOLA QUEEN. I LOVE granola. It is something I will snack on or throw on top of smoothies, in smoothie bowls or serve simply with yoghurt. I used to buy granola all the time until I realised how easy peasy it is to make yourself, minus the added sugar & palm oil, which is contained within many brands of granola. I like my granola a little bit crunchy but with a doughy-ness in the big chunky bits. The great thing about making it yourself is that you can create the consistency you...

Today's post is a super quick recipe, which I created for the first time at the weekend. To be honest I kind of winged it off the back of an idea to combine these two ingredients. In general I'm not a massive fan of citrus flavour desserts or sweets and much prefer chocolate/caramel/banana/nutty type flavours but I'm also not a fan of comfort zones, so I decided to try something different. I was pleased these turned out so well. I liked the taste and you could really get a hint of lemon in...

Merry Christmas everyone... After all my planning for Christmas and ideas of what I was going to do, I ended up keeping it pretty simple but I wanted to share what I made as it was all very tasty. The first essential was the nut roast as I absolutely love nut roast and I followed one of the recipes I shared in an earlier post. With all the crazy rushing about I forget a few ingredients so I had to improvise a bit. It was a recipe from The Vegan Life magazine that I opted for because it looked...

What can I say about Chai....? (pronounced like pie with a Ch). It's a centuries-old beverage which has played an important role in many cultures. My very first encounter with chai was when I had an Indian friend and flatmate at university, who made me some 'special' tea when I was feeling unwell. It was super flavoursome, sweet, creamy and spicy. I think he used condensed milk and a punnet of sugar but at the time I thought WOW, this is amazing! It was years later that I came across chai again...

If it's your first Christmas as a vegan or veggie or maybe you have a family member who has a plant-based diet and you're wondering what the heck to cook, this post is for you. Do not stress! It is really simple to create an extra dish or two that could double up as an accompaniment for non veggies too and make your veggie/vegan diner feel like you've considered them by making some tasty grub. You can substitute most diary products with a plant based alternative, such as veggie margerine...
