The BEST 10 minute Brownie Bites (Gluten Free & Vegan)

You know those moments where you open the fridge and stare for a few minutes in search of something, but find nothing so close it again, only to open it again five minutes later in hope of either some unexplained miracle appearance of the special something or noticing something that was previously unnoticed? This process…

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…

Morning Rituals

Isn’t it so beautiful that every time we wake up, we are faced with a brand new day? A new opportunity and a new page in our book to write whatever we please. Sometimes we take that very blessing for granted. We often just get up and continue our lives like clockwork and roll with…

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…

Fuel for the Day – Chia & Coconut Overnight Oats

When I was in England this winter, I reluctantly had to trade in my favourite morning ritual for something more winter friendly, so I stopped buying bananas in an (unnecessary) abundance and bought only enough for the few days ahead. I no longer had a need to keep a stash in the freezer for my…

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…

Fresh & Fruity Fennel Salad

I’m not going to lie, I’m not a huge fan of eating fennel myself. I don’t like that aniseed flavour in anything, especially not in Turkish Raki or Greek Ouzo that I was recently introduced to through my travels. Perhaps it has something to do with a whole bottle of Sambuca I drank on 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….

The Travel Bug

Traveling is something I’ve been lucky enough to have in abundance since I was a little girl as my family live all over the world. My mother is South African and my father English, so I grew up in England but my mum’s side of the family is large and all of her siblings dispersed…
