    Chocolate Coconut Pistachio Balls

    These little balls are sweet and nutty (pardon the pun) with just a hint of coconut. At only 50 calories per ball, they’re great for a snack or an addition to a bowl of warming oats or even a smoothie bowl. These balls are pretty small, about the size of a teaspoon or a little bigger than your thumbnail. Super cute! The oats in this recipe aren’t essential, you could just use coconut on its own and add more to it but I find the oats give it that nice starchy texture and make them a lot more filling for such a small amount of calories. If you enjoy this recipe you…

    Earth Cakes

    You would think after so many variations I would be fed up with these little potato cakes by now but I’m really not. I keep finding ways to make them even more exciting and more nutrient rich and it all started with that first potato cake recipe. Since then I’ve created the following variations: Zesty Lemon, Banana & Cinnamon, Peanut Butter Matcha with Peanut Buttercream and now these bad boys make it number 5 and it’s certainly a doozy. They taste like a delicious combo of Peanut Butter and Banana as approved by my non-vegan husband. But, they’re so much more than that. As well as the peanut butter and banana they…

    Tofu Meatballs

    For days when you want a meat substitute but don’t want to buy processed foods full of chemicals or pay a large sum. These are perfect and are made simply from tofu, herbs, and spices. They’re slightly spicy but not overly, they have a nice meaty flavor and are super easy to make. Did I also mention they’re low calorie? At only 50 calories per ball if you make ten. If you would like to follow the recipe exactly with the spaghetti and sauce. I made it for two people. Ten Meatballs. 150g Spaghetti and for the sauce: 1 Tin Chopped tomatoes, 2 tbsp Tomato Puree, 1/2 tbsp Nutritional Yeast, 1/2 tbsp…

    Peanut Butter Matcha Cakes with Peanut Buttercream

    Are you as obsessed with Matcha as I am? I recently found a wonderful brand for my plain Matcha Tea or Matcha Lattes. I wanted to do something a little more creative though so I decided a safe bet would be to customise my original recipe for Peanut Butter Potato Cakes. I was surprised with how well they turned out! The Icing is completely optional as these are super tasty without. However, I feel they add an extra element to the flavours and it looks so pretty with the icing. The amount of Matcha in these doesn’t have a super strong flavour but still has all the benefits Matcha provides. As…

    Zesty Lemon Cakes

    The recipe has been adapted from the Peanut Butter Potato Cakes Recipe. They’re just as tasty, a little lower in calories and super zesty. Note – for this exact recipe I added a little icing on top made by combining 2 tsp Icing Sugar with 1 tsp Water and a little Vanilla Extract. Then topping with Lemon Zest.  These Lemon Cakes are dense, moreish, healthy and tasty. They’re Vegan and Gluten-free and super simple to make in just 30 minutes. The combination of the zesty lemon and the sweetness of the Golden Syrup make a perfect combination. If you enjoy these, make sure to try the original peanut butter version or the moreish Banana…

  • Soups and Stews

    Lentil & Bean Curry Soup

    This soup is hearty, nutritious and tastes so good! A wonderful mix of curry flavours comes together with the sweetness of parsnips and the added boost from beans and lentils to make a creamy, delightfully pleasant comfort food. Great for those cold winter nights or as a healthy alternative to a regular meal. Delicious served on its own or with toast, rice cakes or chips of your choice. We love ours with some Avocado toast. This recipe would also make a perfect base for a Curry, just blend a smaller amount of the mixture and add a meat substitute such as Tofu and some peas. If you enjoy this recipe how about…

    Fruity Sweet Potato Oatmeal

    Sweet Potatoes are a little under appreciated. Most people enjoy baking them, frying them, forming them into chips, but, because they are so sweet they make a wonderful addition to sweet dishes as well which makes them a fab addition to Oats, Cakes, brownies. The possibilities are endless. This is a simple, deliciously quaint recipe for Fruity Sweet Potato Oatmeal. The combination of the Sweet Potato Oats combined with the Brown Sugar makes it super yum. The nuts give it a lovely crunch and nutrient boost while the yoghurt and fruit take it to the next level. You have two options when you’re serving this. You can either add your toppings and make…

    Blueberry Delight Smoothie

    Blueberries are a fruit you should try to eat every day. They’re a wonderful superfood. High in fibre and heart-healthy vitamins. Alone, they can be quite tart but with the sweetness of grapes and strawberries and the creaminess of yoghurt, they make a wonderful base for an exceptionally tasty smoothie. At 519 calories this makes a wonderful healthy option to your typical lunch or breakfast. Full of goodness to keep you full and provide you with so many amazing vitamins and minerals.
