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 […]

Sausage & Veg Roast

This is an easy to make family meal (although any leftovers can be frozen for another day if there’s less of you), gives you loads of veg in one meal (I tend to serve with a green salad on the side or a green veg such as broccoli – you can’t have too much broccoli!). […]

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 […]

Creamy Dairy Free Soup

One of the things I miss following a dairy free diet is creamy soup. I tend not to use dairy alternatives as they can have a lot of added extras, so I am always on the lookout for cream alternatives.  Watching Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall’s new series I saw him use hummus in soup.  Hmmm, interesting, what would […]

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 […]

Healthy breakfast ideas for kids

Breakfast is definitely the best meal of the day. After a long night it is designed to do exactly what it says – break your fast. After 10-12 hours without eating we need something to get us up and running again. Today there is such a wide range of options on offer it can be […]

Healthy Soup Bowls

As the autumn weather starts to get colder thoughts turn to comforting warm bowls of homemade soup (well in our house they do!).  However, soup is, well soup, however tasty it is, so I thought I would try and improve on a bowl of Soup by adding toppings (this does only work for thicker soup).  […]
