Banana porridge with blueberry compote – creamy banana flavoured oat porridge topped with a tangy blueberry compote; get two of your five a day in with this healthy, delicious and easy to make breakfast! Post sponsored by Arla.
Milk is one of the main staples of grocery baskets across the country and it is easy to see why; it is such a useful product that is consumed for so many different reasons throughout the day. You might pour it over your cereal at breakfast, have it in your tea and coffee, add it to smoothies, cook with it at dinner, or even bake bread with it. Because it is used so frequently, I think that it is important to make sure that the milk that you buy is of the highest quality. (more…)
Red lentil dhal with roasted cauliflower & butternut squash – an easy, healthy, delicious vegan meal that is good all year round! Post sponsored by Appletiser.
Dhal (or dahl or dal) is one of my go-to meals; it is easy to make, satisfying and very healthy. It is just as delicious eaten outside in the sunshine as it is when eaten wrapped up in a blanket on a cold day. Which is perfect for this awkward time of year, when the weather could go either way.

Raspberry almond overnight oats – get prepared with this super simple recipe for a tasty make-ahead breakfast of creamy almond flavoured oats with raspberry compote. Also learn more about fibre and how much of it you should be eating! Post sponsored by Arla.
Last week I took a trip to London courtesy of Arla to have a lovely lunch and learn a bit more about fibre and the newly launched Arla Fibre yogurts. Despite government recommendations that we should each be consuming 30g of fibre a day, the average UK adult only eats around 18g – nowhere near enough! (more…)
Vegan chocolate chip cookies – crispy round the edges, chewy in the middle, loaded with chocolate chips and really easy to make; these cookies will become your new favourite recipe!
I had one of those days at the weekend where you just don’t know what you are doing with yourself. I didn’t want to do any of the things that needed to be done round the house so instead I was just faffing about doing nothing at all. To pull myself out of the mood I decided to bake some cookies; and that ended up turning into a testing session to perfect my vegan chocolate chip cookies recipe. (more…)

Ratatouille risotto – a creamy, flavourful vegetarian risotto loaded with ratatouille vegetables. Post sponsored by Essential Cuisine.
It seems strange that this is the first risotto recipe that I have shared on here as I make it a lot and it is one of my favourite meals. As a vegetarian, risotto used to be ‘the’ (as in, the only) vegetarian option on most menus. Thankfully, the majority of restaurants have become a lot more accommodating towards vegetarians and vegans and the options are much more plentiful nowadays. The years of having risotto as pretty much my only choice when eating out haven’t put me off it however and I still eat it a lot at home, if not quite as often when eating out anymore. (more…)

I have come down with a stinking cold. I don’t get ill very often, maybe about once every five years; so when I do catch a cold it really hits me hard. I have been struggling to do much at all but I have work and diy to be getting on with and Ringo to walk so I’ve spent a lot less time resting than I would like to. It has meant that I really haven’t felt like cooking but I still need tasty, nourishing food, fast! These prawns in an easy Thai coconut sauce are ready in about half an hour and are very low effort but big on flavour. (more…)
