So it seems to be all over social media at the moment. Cauliflower recipes. But not your usual, pop it in water and boil the life out of it recipes, but actually as a healthy replacement. The main two being a replacement for rice and pizza dough. But why?
This is the sort of breakfast that gives me the get up and go. My Island Granola brings a little sunshine and warmth to your morning breakfast; the combination of spices, dried fruits and nuts makes for a delectable and exquisite breakfast.
It's magic in the veg patch at the moment. Actual magic. Every time you visit something new is sprouting. It's a time for firsts: first batch of green beans, first bowl of strawberries, first purple-podded peas, first courgette (though after last year's un-scalable courgette mountain I meet that one with a certain amount of trepidation).
These creamy, rich and decadent raw vegan salted caramel crème brûlées taste even better than the real thing - fact. And as an extra bonus, they contain no refined sugar, eggs or dairy, so you can enjoy these little pots of heaven guilt-free!
Perfect for those cold, dark mornings.
Let’s be honest here: we can all use a little brain boost from time to time. The days are long and busy ― it’s easy to feel
The idea of mac and cheese without the cheese is hard to wrap your head around. The cheese is pretty much the whole point
To make the base Step 1- Line a cake tin with grease proof paper. I prefer to use a push up cake tin. Step 2- In a food processor/blender, add in the hazelnuts, de-stoned/pitted dates, cacao powder, melted dark chocolate, coconut oil and salt.
Yes, it's possible. And delicious.
Fortified cereals and red meat are good sources of zinc - and you can get it from shellfish, poultry, beans, nuts, whole grains, and dairy products. One of the best sources of zinc is oysters, but sadly oysters are definitely a food to avoid during pregnancy as they contain potential toxins!
Halloween is upon us again, the yearly sugar fest that is matched only by Easter and Christmas. It's a treat or treat bonanza, with a big payday for retailers and families stocking up on cheap candy weeks ahead as if their lives depend on it. Newsflash: Stores do not run out of sweets. And we all know what happens to a stash of goodies at home
Tofu can be prepared in so many inventive ways to create different flavors and textures, from sweet to savory and from smooth to crispy, it's one of the most versatile and healthful foods!
This vegan pâté recipe substitutes walnuts and mushrooms for the meat protein and olive oil for the animal fat. The result is rich and delicious without the artery-clogging saturated fat calories!
Turmeric is a very powerful spice, a popular spice in India, used for thousands of years. It contains curcumin, which is the substance with powerful anti-inflammatory and is a very strong antioxidant.
I have a sweet tooth so I'm always trying to find new ways to indulge without grabbing a chocolate bar, and this recipe is my latest creation. I'm so proud of this one! It's a gorgeously rich chocolate orange avocado mousse. Perfect as a treat! Oh, and it's really quick and easy to make!
If you enjoy cooking it probably does take you out of yourself, and immerses you in a constructive and productive activity. You mix up a batter, pour it in a pan, whack it into he oven and, et voila, a cake. Of course that's good for your brain - if not your waistline. But I think it is more than that.
Naturally gluten-free and as near-as-damn-it to a healthy but actually nice tasting, and not entirely made of coconuts, avocados and dates, blondie as one could possibly make. Indeed, they have passed the all-important kid and pensioner test. You are welcome.
Many people feel that it is tough to eat clean and healthy while on a tight budget. They feel deprived of nutritious meals that actively contributes to their well-being, as good food has a reputation for being much more expensive than unhealthy food.
Just delicious, accessible food that all generations can get stuck into preparing and eating together. That happens to be sugar free. Oh, and ideally involves only a single mixing bowl or oven dish so very little washing up (you've got to dream, haven't you?)
