Mini Apple, Raisin & Cinnamon Loaves

Sometimes the combination of apple, cinnamon and raisins (or sultanas) is all you need. With a hint of orange for extra zing, this is the base for my latest recipe working in collaboration with Graham’s The Family Dairy using their thick, creamy but fat-free Quark, a staple in my fridge that can be used for […]

Energising Dad-To-Be Superfood Smoothie Bowl

When it comes to supplements, I’ve been religiously taking daily pregnancy-specific vitamins and minerals to make sure I’m getting enough of everything I need for my growing Baby. Although bee pollen is something that is often recommended during pregnancy, some advise against using bee products (even honey) as some worry it could cause allergies in […]

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 […]

Dan Doherty’s Beetroot & Feta Dip

One of my favourite vegetables is super nutritious, vibrant beetroot. I love how versatile it is in both sweet and savoury dishes; blended up to create the most delicious texture for healthy chocolate cakes or brownies, or combined with feta/Goat’s cheese in a big chunky salad…The possibilities are endless! In terms of its health benefits, […]

Keeping Hydrated with Highland Spring

Something we can all do when it comes to making a positive health choice all year round is a very simple one: Drink more water.
