Aubergine, Red Pepper & Olive Pasta Sauce

For those of you who have read some of my previous posts, you will know that I am allergic to a zillion different foods and have had to cut out the majority of these from my diet. That unfortunately means that I have slipped into the habit of creating recipes based on the foods I…

Almond and Red Pepper Sauce

No matter how healthy I eat, there is nothing that can stop my hankering for pasta when I’m feeling the effects of an alcohol-filled Saturday night with my girls. This weekend we celebrated the first girl of our group’s Hen Weekend, it’s hard to believe one of us will be walking down the aisle in…

Saucy Spinach & Artichoke

If I’m honest, I actually created this sauce with absolutely no thought process at all. I came home from work last week and just pulled whatever I had in the fridge out and somehow this was the end result. So when a colleague of mine asked me what it was the next day for lunch,…

Butternut Beauty Soup

This bowl of butternut goodness is one of my all-time favourites when it comes to soup. It’s cheap and easy to make, tastes delicious and is very kind to those trying to shift a few pounds. Weight Watchers have been singing the Butternut’s praises for years and I must say I have to agree. I’m…

Spiralized Squash Spaghetti

I have had this recipe in my head for months now and I have finally gotten around to trying it out! I did give it a go a good while back but the way in which I cooked the squash did not turn out so good and I really didn’t like the end result. I…

Innocent Ice Cream

I know this post is a bit late to the party as the weather has already begun to change on us but ice cream is nice no matter what time of year, let’s be honest! I am a big ice cream fan, it’s one of the only deserts I actually considering ordering if I’m out…

Homemade Hummus

When making small changes to your diet to become healthier, another ideal food to add to the menu is Hummus. Hummus is mainly made from Chick Peas that are packed with protein, fibre and omega 3. You can use it as a trusty condiment for snacks or as an alternative dip or side sauce for…

The Slow Cooker Series – Nepalese Lentil Curry

This curry takes a bit more work than most of my recipes but its one I really want to share. I went to Nepal in 2015 and as amazing as the views and the people and everything else that the country had to offer were, the recipe for this dish is one of the best…

Smoothies Any Which Way

Smoothies and Juices are a wonderful way to up your 5-A-Day intake and for the obsessive compulsive in me; they’re quick, clean and are a great way to use up any bits of fruit and veg that are on the way out. The beauty of the smoothie is that you can pretty much combine any…
