Sweet Chilli Glazed Squid Salad

I’ve been lacking inspiration in the kitchen lately; I can’t put my finger on exactly why, but I’m finding it really hard to cook anything interesting! I could lie and say it’s because I’ve been eating my way around Melbourne’s many vegan, vegetarian, raw/macrobiotic restaurants…(which I have) but I think a more accurate and truthful…

Dieting Myths We Need to Stop Believing

I was inspired to write this piece after watching a hilarious segment on Jimmy Fallon. He asked people if they knew what gluten was. Not if they were gluten free, not if they didn’t eat gluten, but simply: “What IS Gluten?” It was fascinating/hilarious/scary to see how many people (everyone who appeared in the video)…

Courgette Noodles & Spicy Peanut Sauce

I remember whipping up this beauty while I was still at my parents place in London. It’s the perfect combination of sweet, spicy and salty – the addition of toasted crunchy cashews, warm broad beans and fresh bean sprouts combine together for an unreal flavour profile and texture. Yummo! I used a spiralizer to make…

The 6 Best Smoothie Bowls of All Time

If you have Instagram and you follow anyone who is even slightly on the right of the health eating spectrum, there’s no doubt that you would’ve seen the hashtag #smoothiebowl. What’s a #smoothiebowl? Think of the smoothie bowl as cereal redux; it’s the plant-based foodie’s update to cereal and milk (which is so 2008). It’s a fun…

Best Bircher Breakfast

Everyone knows that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but I am always so surprised by how many people still skip it. Eating a well balanced breakfast: improves concentration and energy levels, averts cravings and controls hunger, and has been shown to increase your metabolic rate by up to 10%. If you’re on…

Red Lentil and Butternut Squash Dhal

I’m staying at my parents house before I move to Melbourne in a couple of weeks, and as I work from home a majority of the week, have really been able to get creative at lunchtime. My mum said she had a bunch of red split lentils hiding in the cupboards somewhere, and did I…

Coconut Cacao Bliss Balls

Allll healthy food sceptics, PLEASE behold: Cacao coconut bliss balls.  Creamy coconut combined with antioxidant + flavonoid rich cacao powder (raw chocolate powder) all mixed up with healthy-fats queen coconut oil. Ridiculouslytasty. They taste like bounty bars, without the crap. I can’t even really remember the quantities for these bad boys because I made them about a…

Honey Roasted Chickpeas

Chickpeas are a wonder legume in my humble opinion. I love that they’re so versatile – they take to spices really well so can easily be made sweet or savoury. I’ve made soups with chickpeas, salads, falafel, hummus (obviously), and even cookies – the recipe’s not quite perfected on the latter, but it’s getting there…! I’m sharing…

Raw Chocolate Tarts

Mindfulness practice suggests that we live each moment in the present. Cooking de-stresses me, but baking distracts me. So tonight, I decided to be mindful and distracted at the same time. It was almost as if I was on auto-pilot; I was so focused on making the dessert I had in my mind come to fruition. I…

Take A Moment for Your Mind

How often do you take a moment for be present on a daily basis? Until six weeks ago, being mindful was something I thought I could never achieve. I’m just too busy to live in the present, I told myself. I don’t have time to think in the present because I have too many things to…
