Vegan Shakshuka Recipe
FEATURED

I know, its probably, like, a crime to call something ‘shakshuka’ if it doesn’t contain eggs. Literally, the dish is egg. But, no matter. Imma just go ahead and do it anyway 🤷‍♀️ This recipe makes a one pot fancy AF brunch, with no animal derived foods. How do you make vegan eggs taste eggy? The vegan egg replacement in this recipe is basically a riff on tofu scramble – not quite the baked eggs you’d normally find in Shakshuka, but the taste is definitely not far off. Black salt is the secret to that slightly sulphuric ‘egg’ taste. I

Simple Tofu Scramble
FEATURED

I’ve said before that brunch is my favourite meal of the day. Brunch out with mimosas & friends, brunch to share with morning-after-the-night-before gossip, lazy brunch in my pyjamas with coffee and a book. Brunch is the best. However. A really good plant-based and gluten-free brunch can be kinda hard to find. Even if you do track one down, vegan & gluten-free food is often also super healthy food. Don’t get me wrong, I love a good smoothie or a bowl of granola with almond yoghurt but after one too many (gluten-free) pints, mega healthy is probably not at the top

My go-to smoothie recipes
FEATURED

I started having smoothies for breakfast on-and-off a few years ago, and its a habit I’ve adopted into my weekday routine. Before I started having breakfast smoothies, I worried they wouldn’t fill me up, but you’d be surprised. I make my smoothie before I leave for the office (on days when I’m not working from home) and drink it at about 9, once I’m settled in for the day. A mid-morning snack (usually a piece of fruit) is enough to keep me full until lunchtime. And how else could I have (usually) 2-3 portions of my five a day before

Vegan frappe iced coffee smoothie
FEATURED

This vegan frappe is really my ‘treat’ smoothie. It’s definitely not breakfast – more like an iced coffee (though the addition of oats does make it very filling). Coffee & chocolate are a perfect match for oats, and it even manages to include a portion of fruit. You can get more breakfast smoothies here, like this classic tropical green smoothie or this pink smoothie with berries & almonds. This vegan frappe recipe is perfection on a hot day – drinking blended, creamy iced coffee reminds me of long, hot summer days on the beach. The first holiday I took with

Recipe for pink smoothie
FEATURED

I’m definitely an advocate of smoothies for breakfast (when the weather is warm enough to leave my porridge behind). A pink smoothie like this one though, makes a great snack, too. I often work on my blog and freelancing in the evening, after I get home from work, and a smoothie at 5:30 when I get in sets me up for a few more productive hours before a late dinner If its the ‘green’ that puts you off smoothies, berry varieties are the way to go. This one is such a bright, jewelled pink, it looks more like a dessert

simple recipe for green smoothie
FEATURED

I often have smoothies for breakfast (especially in the warmer months). I know a green smoothie isn’t real breakfast (in the way that a bowl of hot porridge or a couple of rounds of buttered toast are). But sometimes I’m in a rush and I just want to kneck a few of my five-a-day and get on with my morning. It literally takes me about 3 minutes to get breakfast sorted when I start the day with a smoothie. This (or some variation on it) is my ‘standard’ day-to-day smoothie. I’ll usually take a green smoothie into the office with

Simple banana pancakes
FEATURED

Who doesn’t love pancakes for breakfast? Since going gluten-free I’ve missed pancakes on lazy Sunday mornings. Needless to say, I’ve done a bunch of experimentation to come up with this gluten-free pancakes mix. My best-ever gluten-free pancakes are super simple (and – bonus – laden with peanut butter). Just like last weeks’ recipe for a simple homemade hummous (plus three awesome variations), this recipe for banana pancakes can actually be made way more simply using a personal blender (like an (affiliate link) ActiveBlend). Little blenders like this completely cut out the faff of washing and drying all the parts of

Learn how to make homemade gluten free granola, with this super simple granola recipe So, first post of January! There is something about the start of a new year that is just exciting, isn’t there? Though I’m not one for setting resolutions, exactly. I hate the pressure people put on themselves to overhaul their whole lives in January and, for me, setting high expectations for a million different things that just NEED to change right now is a recipe for tears come February, when I haven’t managed to keep up with my #BrandNewLifestyle. I have started making a few changes

Make up this breakfast the night before, for an energy-fuelled and productive morning Ever feel like there just isn’t enough time in the morning? Especially in the winter, when getting up for work feels like you’re rising in the middle of the night, the morning struggle is very much real. All too often I end up grabbing a banana and a cereal bar on my way into work because I didn’t get up early enough to make a proper breakfast – and now, when it is cold and grey and gloomy is when you most need a good breakfast, to
