Farro & Cauliflower Salad with Mint and Pomegranate

  I’m a big fan of meals in a bowl- and by that I mean a dish that contains protein, carbs, healthy fats and lots of veg… something you can toss together in one bowl and take on the go, or dish up for a quick lunch or dinner in minutes. I love whipping up…

This salad is almost too fun to eat! It may come as no surprise, but I absolutely love and am inspired by colourful foods.

Chocolate-Orange-Coconut Truffles

  I’ve recently been experimenting with homemade milks, and so far I think homemade coconut milk might be my favourite! See recipe here if you’d like to try making your own.

Chocolate-Strawberry-Coconut Smoothie + Homemade Coconut Milk

I’ve recently been experimenting with preparing homemade nut milks. I absolutely LOVE the flavour and texture, and the fact that there are no weird ingredients added. The one thing that is important to be aware of, however, is that homemade nut milks are not a good source of calcium like their calcium-fortified counterparts (i.e. store-bought…

Pasta with Roasted Garlic & Tomato Sauce

This roasted garlic and tomato sauce could not be simpler, but the flavours are truly incredible- you’ll have everyone fooled! This recipe is one that does not have measurements. Cooking without a recipe is so liberating and fun- if you’ve not tried it before, I encourage you to give it a go! I used to…

Turmeric-Tahini-Coconut Bliss Balls

These turmeric-tahini-coconut bliss balls make for the perfect snack. I whipped them up for Father’s Day as my dad loves energy balls and is always requesting I make him some. I was sure to feature some of his favourite flavours in these ones, sweetening them with blackstrap molasses (only 1 tbsp. for the whole batch)…

Healthy eating does NOT have to be boring and bland! Actually- healthy eating can be theĀ  complete opposite!

This salad is just that-…
