Sunday night smoothie bags

Smoothies are great as a speedy breakfast or post workout snack - you can sneak in a couple of portions of fruit, a handful of veg, some heathy fats and an antioxidant rich spice like turmeric or cinnamon. Despite being easy to throw in the blender, some mornings you don't have time to chop fruit or find the … Continue reading Sunday night smoothie bags

Sweet Potato and Black Bean Hash

Sometimes things with few ingredients work just right, and this is one of them.  The dish is inspired by one of my dear friends in Paris, who made a similar dish for a lazy brunch one weekend. In this version I've added black beans and omitted the squash - although a mix of sweet potato and squash also … Continue reading Sweet Potato and Black Bean Hash

Avocado energiser smoothie

Mornings have been made faster thanks to the arrival of the NutriBullet and I admit, I'm addicted to trying out new smoothie combinations. This week I'm experimenting with plant based proteins - hello avocado energiser! This smoothie has a super creamy texture from the avocado - yes it's higher in fat but the combination of fats, protein and … Continue reading Avocado energiser smoothie

Choco-berry power smoothie

This smoothie is a great speedy breakfast or filling snack. It's rich in protein (which helps you stay fuller longer), plus it packs 3 servings of antioxidant rich fruit and veggies. Prunes might not be your usual smoothie partner, but they provide a burst of natural energy, plus they're a secret bone builder - in one study from Florida … Continue reading Choco-berry power smoothie

Banana Almond Spinach Smoothie

Smoothies are great breakfasts when you're short of time, or like me this morning, when you realise you've run out of oats and bread, but what do you have is fruit and yoghurt. Adding a couple of handfuls of greens to a fruit smoothie is a handy way to boost your vegetable intake - you  won’t notice any change in … Continue reading Banana Almond Spinach Smoothie

Four nut and seed muesli

Breakfast cereals are often high in added sugars - but that doesn't mean you have to stop eating cereal if that's what you like. A better option is to make your own. As you control what goes in you can make it gluten free, sugar free, full of seeds, adding your favourite fruits - the choice is yours. This … Continue reading Four nut and seed muesli

Mexican scrambled eggs

I love Mexico. The music, the people, the colours, the sounds, and the food. Did I mention the food? From mouthwatering mole to sauce dribbling down your fingers tlayudas, tacos and tamales, the food in Mexico is a love affair all of its own. During a 6 month journey across the country I was lucky to sample many a breakfast … Continue reading Mexican scrambled eggs

PB Banana Overnight Oats

This week I’ve returned to eating overnight oats as I’ve committed to a month of 7:30 AM yoga (gulp) which means a speedy breakfast is needed. While eggs are brilliant when you have the luxury of a little more time, overnight oatmeal is great ‘fast food’. Carried to work or eaten as soon as you roll out of … Continue reading PB Banana Overnight Oats

3-Ingredient Banana Pancakes

I'm a fan of simplicity when it comes to healthy eating. Although most of us could benefit from spending more time in the kitchen, busy schedules don't always allow for it, which means healthy food needs to be simple if it's to become habit. Say hello to 3-ingredient banana pancakes. The most basic of recipes, these fluffy pancakes are … Continue reading 3-Ingredient Banana Pancakes
