Berry Crumble Bars (GF, V)

Back when I first cut gluten and dairy out of my diet, I was on a major mission to find the best sweet treats that would satisfy my sweet cravings. I made something similar to this back then, but then found a juice bar that also had a gluten free and vegan bakery section producing…

Banana & Walnut Muffins (GF, DF)

I was talking to a friend the other day about “healthy” treats to replace the sugar filled ones so readily available as she’d asked for any recipes to curb sweet cravings on a new low sugar thing she’s trying. I sent over a bunch and suddenly realized that if you’re on that train and don’t…

Lemon Polenta Cake (Gluten & Dairy Free)

This is one of my go-to cakes when I’m craving a bake for myself. It’s gluten and dairy free, so full of moisture, only a little bit full of guilt and so tasty. I’ve made a version of this a handful of times and tweaked the recipe ever so slightly each time, but think I’ve…

My Favourite Dairy Free Alternatives for Savoury Dishes

As I’ve said before, I am not “vegan” and I don’t pretend to be. I am, however, lactose and gluten intolerant which stemmed my love for getting creative with food in the first place and have since grown a love for all things plant-based. I’m not the biggest advocate for replacing cheese with “cheeze” as…

Amalfi

We’ve all heard about it. We’ve seen photos and we’ve got an idea of what this coastline is all about, but in reality, we have no idea until we actually visit. It was one of the first places I heard about when I met my husband. He told me all about his job, his life…

Thoughts for Tuesday

Before I get started with this little ramble from my brain, I’m just going to first say that if you’re expecting a pretty coloured salad or some food inspiration, this isn’t the right post. Scroll down and check out my last two posts for that. This, is a little bit of raw reality from the…

Spicy Salmon, Broccoli & Rice Dish

Those days you want something nourishing but without the fuss can be frustrating. It’s easy to just reach for something unhealthy in a rush and I know that feeling all too well but I’m on a mission to change that. Quick and healthy don’t often go together, unless you’re grabbing an apple to snack on….

Filled with Greens

Although I’m very health conscious and all about getting my daily fix of vitamins through food, I’ve never really got into the juicing trend. Don’t get me wrong, I love a fresh juice and will often order one along side my breakfast if I’m out or will make myself a smoothie for breakfast, as a…

Keeping busy

I’m sure nobody’s been missing me, but I’m going to go ahead and apologise anyway for going awol the past couple of weeks. As I mentioned before, we were moving the boat from Greece to Italy and had friends with us. We were enjoying our two weeks of downtime and exploring a little & then…

Black Rice & Sweet Potato Salad

I’m a big fan of salads, especially when I’m in a bit of a rush to eat something fast, but I’m also conscious of making a salad interesting and thinking outside of the box. A salad doesn’t have to be a bowl of leaves. For me, it’s the chance to throw a bunch of goodness…
