I don’t know about you but I absolutely hate taking time off work (unless there’s a holiday or exciting adventure booked and then I’m all for it). I’m the world’s worst sick person as – unless I’m bed ridden with flu and physically can’t move – I need to have something going on to preoccupy… Continue reading Goin’ bananas….
Firstly, can I just state how utterly rubbish I am at keeping a blog these days? Back in my late teens and early twenties I was an avid blogger (possibly verging on serial oversharer but what can you do?) – I’d use my blog as an escape from the real world and as a form… Continue reading Little Adventures – Parbold Hill, Lancashire
Asides from popping them in the freezer to make some ‘nice-cream’, there’s only one thing to do with those overripe, squishy, and more-black-than-yellow bananas that were left over from the week – make some banana bread. I don’t know about you but I absolutely adore banana bread and it’s one of the easiest bakes to… Continue reading Healthy carrot and banana bread [Gluten Free, Vegan, Paleo]

Saying I love breakfast is an understatement… I absolutely adore it. It sets you up for the day ahead, all of those nutrients and vitamins breaking your fast from the night before. With our hectic lifestyles, breakfast is often overlooked. As a student I regularly skipped it. My brain just didn’t function as I hoped… Continue reading FODMAP friendly carrot cake baked oats [Gluten free, Vegan]
As I mentioned in a previous post, I am absolutely 100% addicted to pesto. I don’t know what it is, the vibrance and freshness of the ingredients maybe? Or possibly the fact that it’s one of the easiest and quickest meals you could make without skimping on flavour. Whip up a batch of pesto and… Continue reading Sundried tomato + kale pesto [low-FODMAP, vegan]
To those who know me, I adore pesto. I could quite literally eat the stuff out of a jar with a spoon – tasty but not especially healthy nor good for me (hello FODMAPs). I’ve experimented making a low FODMAP pesto before (except I lacked in pine nuts and used cashews instead which are definitely… Continue reading FODMAP friendly kale pesto [GF, vegan]
