Mango Salsa

The perfect accompaniment for the Coconut Chicken. This Mango Salsa will really add to the freshness of the dish and give it a bit of a chilli kick, I would also add a small clove of garlic. This recipe can be tweaked to your taste very easily. This would also go well with fish or […]

Buckwheat Banana Bread

A delicious gluten, dairy & egg free sweet treat. This is very easy to make, uses up the uneaten ripe bananas at the end of the week and can be enjoyed by everyone. Spread with a little butter (if you eat dairy) or some almond butter (if you’re dairy free). The addition of the walnuts […]

Black Bean Brownies

This is one of my favourite sweet treat recipes. It’s moist, light (crumbly) & totally delicious. The best bit is that if you don’t tell anyone that there is no flour or butter in the brownies they don’t know and they will certainly never guess it’s made with beans!! So not only is it dairy […]

Scones

I love a scone and it’s one of the things I miss about following a gluten & dairy free diet. So, I decided that I would have a go at making some myself and this is what I’ve come up with. These are dairy free, gluten free, low sugar scones (suitable for vegans) that are also high […]

Veggie Burger & Tahini Slaw

I wanted a  veggie burger that didn’t use breadcrumbs, included sweet potato and is simple to make.  So here it is Bean & Sweet Potato burger.  These are quite soft so don’t work well in a bun (however you could firm up the mixture with some buckwheat flour (if you are gluten free) or plain flour […]

Lemon Paradise Bars

I love Hemsley & Hemsley’s Paradise Bars – basically healthy bounty bars! I have tweaked the recipe so that it uses less sweetener and put a lemon flavouring through it. I can report it is delicious and thought I would share for you to try.  You could also make ‘bliss balls’ from this recipe if […]

How to be Healthy at Christmas

As Christmas approaches it can become more difficult to maintain a healthy way of life – even for someone like me who’s whole life revolves around healthy eating and maintaining as healthy a lifestyle as possible.  The temptations are endless and everywhere.  From the glossy magazines to supermarket displays, office offerings, Christmas parties and family […]

No Chocolate Advent Calendars

As December approaches the lure of the chocolate advent calendar looms large.  When I was a kid we had to share one calendar between 4 of us and weren’t allowed the chocolate until the end of the day (how mean was that!).  I didn’t realise then what a big favour our Mum was doing us.  […]

Dinner in a Hurry

How often do you get in from work or taking the kids to yet another club, you need to eat, but you just don’t have the energy or desire to cook something healthy from scratch? I know it’s great if you can cook a meal from scratch using ‘real’ ingredients, but let’s face facts, it […]
