Cashew Cream Spaghetti

By now, I have experienced the benefits of veganism first hand. When done right, a few weeks on a vegan diet can boost your mood, energy levels, and combined with a regular amount of exercise can have you shedding the pounds quicker than you realize. One run-in I’ve had with the diet, however, is how…

Blueberry and Cranberry Chia Bars

I’m a big fan of sweet treats that are easy to throw together, and even more so when they happen to be healthy. Dates are an extremely popular fruit in the Middle East, where I’m currently working because of the huge volume of date palm trees. They’re high in fiber and can be used as…

My Minestrone

Minestrone – a traditional, thick Italian soup – consists usually of many vegetables like beans, onions, celery, carrot sticks and tomato, with added rice or pasta, or sometimes both. There have been many different varieties of minestrone created down through the years, with every different twist as interesting as the other. Most people stick to…

Blueberry Oat Scones

Oats have long been a life-saver for me when it comes to cooking. From using them as an affordable way to start my day as a student with porridge, to blending them into a flour to bake a healthy loaf, to making a bulky and filling smoothie and making these decadent yet super easy scones….

Kale Turkey Burgers

Following on from my previous recipe post using kale, I’d like to share another way to sneak the power green into your meals without really noticing it. Homemade burgers were always a staple for me growing up at home – my mum always preferred to throw them together with fresh mince rather than bring home…

Sweet Potato Fritters

Sweet potato is another favorite healthy carb of mine because of its health benefits and the many ways in which it can be used. I’ve recently snuck it into some sweet baked recipes such as my Sweet Potato Brownies, but this time I’m cooking with it in savory form. These fritters bind well with a…

Chia Bolognese

Chia seeds are a great addition to any meal; a nice inclusion of omega-3 fats, antioxidants fibre iron and calcium. Looking back on some recipes I’ve made with chia seeds has reminded me about their versatility. They’re so adaptable that you don’t even realize they’re there sometimes, like for example in this following chia bolognese….

Sweet & Savory Oat Loaf

Continuing on from my previous discussion about the versatility of oats, I’d like to hand you another example: oat bread! For anybody who isn’t a fan of baking bread the traditional way, or is warming to the idea but just aren’t quite there yet, I suggest trying this recipe, as it holds low risk of…
