homemade healthy granola

Every healthy foodie has got their signature way of doing homemade granola, so I thought it was about time I shared mine! I love to eat granola with Greek yoghurt and either a grated apple, sliced banana or berries. I tend to find it’s not as filling as having eggs for breakfast but it’s a nice change when you feel like something different, and fantastic to bring when going on holidays where you won’t have the facilities to make a cooked breakfast.

I like to have this smoothie on a really hot day or after a workout. It’s beautifully refreshing and tastes absolutely delicious –  it’s like dessert in a glass! Thanks to the banana and maca powder, it’s quite energising, too.

If you don’t want to buy powdered peanut butter (available from iherb.com), you can use a tablespoon of normal peanut butter.

This smoothie was made with love for my lovely friend,  Christina. She is a hard-working Mum with three active children under five.

I had my first Reece’s Peanut Butter Cup when travelling around America in 2012. It was love at first taste! This healthy version tastes just as yummy as the original, but they are actually good for you! Plus, like anything I make in the kitchen, they are very simple and quick! Due to the high fat content, they are a bit of a

Brownlie-Special-Green-smoothie

This is my husband’s and my current favourite green smoothie. We were basically aiming to create the most nutrient-packed drink possible that was still drinkable! It’s not very sweet, so maybe halve the recipe the first time to see if you like it. We enjoy it as a refreshing and energising start to our day on the weekends, along with some bacon

If you still haven’t heard of ‘proats’, let me fill you in. Basically, proats are where you combine oats with protein powder and an endless combination of other delicious and nutrient-packed goodies. Instead of cooking your oats like you would in making porridge, you just soak them in the fridge for at least an hour, or overnight, hence the name! There’s

My 3 Favourite Chocolate Cake Recipes

I love chocolate! It’s definitely my favourite sweet food, so I’ve tried a lot of different chocolate cake recipes!  Here are my favourite three. Enjoy!

  1. Mr I’s “Far Too Easy” Chocolate Cake.

What I like about it? It tastes amazing and is so easy! I can’t imagine how it could be any easier or quicker to make a cake from scratch. I always serve it without icing, but with cashew cream (see the link on the recipe page).
