After enduring the constant nausea of the first trimester, I’ve been able to go back to eating pretty normally throughout weeks 14-24+. […]

Goodlife: Making Vegetables the Star of the Show

Ahhhh, vegetables. From sweet potatoes and carrots to courgettes, tomatoes, peppers and aubergines, I love pretty much all varieties (although sprouts will NEVER be included, soz!). It can be so easy to transform them into delicious, creative and interesting dishes but for some of us, veggies can appear to be dull, boring or unadventurous. That’s […]

Not-So-Indulgent Chocolate Easter Cake

I think out of all the Easter-themed recipes I have created and posted on my blog recently, this is my favourite Easter #IndulgingInnocently creation. To coincide with International Sweet Potato Week (from 1st – 13th April) in collaboration with American Sweet Potatoes (you may have seen my other recipes over here) I’ve created a wonderfully delicious […]

Vegan Cream Eggs

One of my challenges was to try and re-create a healthy kind of Cream Egg alternative this Easter.

They are frozen little goodies rather than a chocolate shell encasing a gooey centre, […]

White Chocolate Easter Bites

A while ago you have have seen these Superfood White Chocolate Bites I made working with the wonderful health food brand, Indigo Herbs, using a range of their organic products. With Easter coming up it only seemed right to create another chocolate-based recipe especially for this sweet celebration! We wanted to keep the homemade white […]

Vegan Chocolate Caramel Hobnob Biscuits

Time for another recipe using Tiger Nut flour, and with it’s deliciously nutty flavour, I thought it would work amazingly well in a biscuit combined with caramel and chocolate – remember those Hobnobs? Yep, like that. So I attempted to make a healthier, vegan, dairy and gluten-free and no refined sugar version and they turned […]

One of my favourite vegetables is super nutritious, vibrant beetroot.

In terms of its health benefits, […]
