Summer Salad

Green Goddess Salad

It is hard to remember that it was just a mere four months ago that we had a foot of snow here, when we are currently enjoying days upon days of sunny weather and temperatures in the mid 20°Cs. To me, who quiet like the heat, this current spell feels like true soul nourishment. A way to fill up my …

Summer Salad with Whole Spelt Grains & Slow Roasted Veg

Ok, so straight up I am going to admit that when I made this Summer Salad first, I didn’t intend to make it as a potential blog recipe. I was just trying to come up with some new meal ideas, as I was working on improving the variety of foods that I am eating.

However, when I sat down to …

Basic Oat Cookies

As I am striving to simplify my life with less stuff, I also feel a draw to create recipes that reflects that. Amid the current hype of “50-fancy-ingredient-lattes”, what I want is something tasty and comforting made from just a few store cupboard ingredients.

Maybe it is my shift towards digging deeper into the social justice side of health, or …

Fennel Roasted Carrot & Chickpea Salad with Orange & Mint

Don’t be fooled by the simplicity of this salad, it really packs a punch and is fairly substantial due to the chickpeas which provides plenty of fibre and some protein. It is fresh, warm and a perfect dish for going from colder weather to warmer days.

I know that the weather is something that is beyond ones control but it …

Lentil & Mushroom Casserole

Finally… Can you smell it? Spring! I am so excited for warmer weather and brighter days. The fact the days are longer now, after the clock’s recent change has helped my mood a lot. The other weekend I got inspired and cleared out a space for some vegetable growing, and then the following day (in the pouring rain) I drove …

Cumin Roasted Beetroot & Puy lentil Salad

Do you what is really challenging? Taking photos of red and dark coloured foods! I don’t know if it is just my camera that is struggling with the light / contrast or if there’s something else contributing, which I don’t know about… It just feels a little unfair as the pictures doesn’t truly do the dish justice.

This salad is …

Beetroot Latte

Normally I post new blogs on Sunday afternoon, but with this recent spell of snow(!) and winter weather I decided that I might as well post this as I write it.

And after a little hiatus I posted this blog earlier this week, so there you go. I know I’m not the greatest at consistency. I think variety is more …

Curried Cauliflower Stir-Fry

For the month of January I partook in a “Buy Nothing but Consumables Challenge”.  Considering that my finances put a natural constrained on any purchasing desires, it wasn’t a massive task to get through, but even so I still found it an interesting experience and it did give me some insights and a new awareness.

This challenge was headed up …

Hot Chocolate for Cold Days

This year I have decide to try something different. Rather than focusing on moulding my life into the way I “think it should be”, I have decide to “take action without attachment to outcome”.  Only a few weeks into the year and my life is already giving me plenty of opportunities to practice this intention. In reality letting go of …

Fig & Walnut Salad

I feel like I’m behind with writing blog posts… Again!

I had another post idea lined up but since it hasn’t been written up yet, I think it will have to wait until the New Year. Who wants to think about batch cooking and meal planning at the moment anyway, right?!

It can be a challenge to balance out all …
