It's Easter Weekend. I want to start this by saying I intend on spending the weekend eating hot cross buns, destroying easter eggs, hopefully enjoying a roast dinner (I'm looking at you, Mum), and probably drinking too much (let's be real). Nothing about this post is going to imply otherwise or suggest you don't do … Continue reading Why you don’t need to diet this Easter Weekend.
I'm not too sure what I would consider this recipe, somewhere between tiffin, rocky road, bark and a chocolate bar. But whatever they are, they taste great. And they look cute. It's really easy to make at home, with kids (or by yourself, like me) and have in the fridge to grab. Making your own … Continue reading Fruit and Nut Easter Egg Bark

I got asked this question in one of my workshops this week and it upset me for a number of reasons. Firstly. Enough with the bread shaming. I'm not sure exactly when bread became the villain of life and health but it's delicious and everyone needs to back off. If you follow my instagram (which … Continue reading ‘Do you eat bread?’
It doesn't take the most observant person out there to realise I enjoy food. A lot. And it hurts my soul every time I see a food group get demonised. Let's take carbs for example. You don't need to spend long on the internet before you find someone telling you how great it is to … Continue reading Why we don’t have an ‘Obesity Crisis’.
I've never understood the term healthy cake. Even when I was younger I remember questioning the concept. 'Surely it's still just cake that doesn't taste as good as cake?'. I was right. Any one food within a diet cannot be deemed healthy or unhealthy. Where it sits within the rest of your day is far … Continue reading Healthy Cake.

Melt 1 tbsp coconut oil, 1 tbsp honey/maple syrup in … Continue reading Next Level Flapjacks
Today I played a game of how many great tasting things can I put in one cookie. I had a some old bananas that needed using and instead of making my usual banana bread I wanted to try something a little different. These little cookies are soft and chewy, they're sweet without being sickly and … Continue reading Banana Oat Tahini Cookies
