7 Gourmet Nut Butter Recipes

Gourmet Nut Butters-02

Honestly, I think nut butter may be my favourite food group. We’ve had our ups and downs (for a while we had to break up entirely because I became too reliant on our relationship. NB saw other people. I saw other fat sources…) But today, we’re in a very happy place. I know what I […]

Peanut Butter & Jelly Protein Bowl

Peanut Butter & Jelly Protein

  I remember a time when I didn’t like peanut butter. It disturbed me – how a peanut butter sandwich* would stick to the roof of my mouth, rendering me speechless and not in a good way. *We didn’t add jelly – or jam – because the concept was literally foreign in our Anglo-Irish household. […]

Chocolate Chip Coconut Pancakes (Gluten-free)

Chocolate Chip Coconut Pancakes

Chocolate chip coconut pancakes sound like something I would have fantasised about as a child. But no, mum was more inclined to make us dainty ‘crepes’ filled with sugar and double cream. Not that I’m complaining – they were bloody good. But now – I can make all the chocolate-filled delicacies I ever dreamed of! Mwahaha […]

My Quest For… A Homemade Quest Bar

Quest Bars - New British Dessert Flavours!

Don’t get me wrong; I love living in the UK. Free healthcare (for now…), grass fed cows, not having to drive everywhere (oh, I’m a Londoner if you hadn’t guessed). But… it has it’s down sides. Namely, when oggling the particular food stuffs I see my American blogging friends show off. From Justin’s nut butter […]

Chocolate Chia MUGG Muffin For One

Paleo Muffin

I suck at following instructions. This week I’ve had my personal trainer try (as best he could bless him) to teach me how to clean and press a kettlebell. I’ve also attended a half day course ‘Crochet for Beginners’ at my local adult learning centre. In both cases, I gave it my all. But I […]

Cat Cookies v2.0 (More Chocolatey Than Ever!)

Low-carb cat cookies

I don’t bake for pleasure. Does that make me a bad blogger? A bad potential grandma for sure. I bake for practical reasons. To make others happy. To have something to snack on that isn’t as boring as fruit or as expensive and crap-filled as buying pre-made baked goods. Oh, and of course, to instagram. […]

DIY Dairy-Free Vegan Protein Powder Recipe (For Cheap)

DIY plant protein

If you read my elegiac post earlier this week about my battle with adult acne and rosacea, (firstly, well done for getting through it) and secondly, you’ll know about my current ban on whey. NO WHEY? Yes way. Erm… Now, I’m not a big protein powder supplementer (word?) but it is just something I like […]

Pre-Workout Green Apple Gelatin Gummies

pre-workout gelatin

Other than my beloved coffee, I’m not the biggest fan of drinkables. I much prefer to chew, basically. Smoothies, soups, shakes… I’ll take mine spoonable, preferably. The lumpier the better 😉 But getting my pre-workout BCAAs in wasn’t too bad – the green apple flavour that I’m currently toying with is delicious. Mixed in with […]

Paleo Pumpkin Superfood Truffles

truffles cat food is good for you

Yeah I played with this recipe name a lot. Pumpkin Coconut Balls? Maca Pumpkin Fat Bombs? The Healthiest Truffles On Teh Interwebs? But that’s ok, because these bad boys speak for themselves… I was never a huge fan of the spherical-shaped food phenomenon, but then I found myself in the kitchen with a load of […]

Bulletproof Pumpkin Spice Latte (#BPSL)

pumkin-th

When I googled ‘bulletproof pumpkin spice latte’, I expected to be bombarded with a load of great recipes I could whip up that morning. Ok, ok, I got some. But not quite what I wanted. I don’t want to use a pumpkin spice syrup. I don’t want coconut cream in it. I want MY bulletproof […]
