As the days grow shorter and the evenings become cooler my attention begins to turn to the more comforting things in life. Steamy bowls of slow-cooked food and thick and textured blankets to snuggle under. Sparkly mood lighting, fluffy socks and a good book by my side. I have been known to spend hours pouring over Pinterest, getting caught up in a world of hygge and spice to celebrate the season change and this year has been no different. There really is nothing more inviting than a bowl of warm comfort food, however, this year I have set myself the challenge to stay as plant-based as possible. While there are many recipes out there that fit the ‘healthy’ brief I am craving those oozy, gooey and downright drool-worthy recipes that begin to spring up at this time of year! So, here we have it. The beginning of our Autumn plant-based range. I have put together a large collection of plant-based comfort food for you all to enjoy over the coming seasons to keep you, I and all those other fabulous families out there healthy, happy and as nourished as possible. I can’t promise you that on the odd occasion there […]
I can’t believe that this day has finally come. The day when I can say loud and proud that we’ve written a book. A beautiful cookbook that I can’t wait to share with you all. This book has been a labour of love. Hours and hours have gone into these recipes. From the simple ideas in the beginning to the making and taste testing to get each and every recipe just perfect for you all. I am so grateful to my family for all of their support in the making of this book. Without Daddy Journey, the photos and technical side of things would never have been achieved. Without my amazing and very talented brother, we would never have been able to bring you such a creative piece of writing. My beautiful weegans and my super amazing mum have allowed me to spend hours in the kitchen with no complaints eager to taste test every offering without bias. Without them, our recipes wouldn’t have been through such rigorous testing and have pushed me to strive for the best of the best for you all to enjoy. This book is full of over 50, whole food plant-based recipes. They are all […]
I have to be honest. I had a craving at a quarter to midnight last night and you’re now looking at the results. Now, I try and be healthy as much as I can and no, I don’t believe eating cake in the middle of the night comes under the bracket of ‘healthy’ but sometimes the urge just gets too great. And do you know what? I’m not going to beat myself up about it because it doesn’t happen every night and because these are so incredibly delicious I can’t think past the maple, pumpkin and gooey date taste in my mouth. So there! I was clearly in the mood for cake but I thought if I hide it under the guise of wanting to make breakfast muffins as a treat for the kids then hubby wouldn’t mind getting the camera equipment out for an impromptu midnight photo session of our treats and wares. I was a bit nervous about experimenting with a new recipe so late at night, especially when juggling the moisture of the pumpkin but seriously, this is quite possibly one of the best cakes I’ve ever made. (Do you hear the sound of trumpets?) Not wanting […]
Sunny Baobab juice We first heard about the baobab tree when we went to visit the Eden Project in Cornwall. We were enjoying the tropical temperatures of the rainforest zone and had the chance to cool down with a vanilla and baobab ice cream. Baobab has a citrusy taste which was so gentle and refreshing. That was the last I thought about baobab for a while until I saw it in a health food shop and thought I’d do a little research to find out what it was all about. I was quite astonished when I realised it was a superfood. Baobab powder comes from the deciduous baobab tree. You can find it in Madagascar, mainland Africa, Arabia, and Australia. In Africa they call it ‘The Tree of life.’ And for good reason too as it has a whole host of nutritious benefits. Dried baobab fruit powder is loaded with antioxidants, especially vitamin C. It is one of the highest plant food sources of calcium gram for gram and is rich in potassium, magnesium, protein and finer too. It is also classed as a prebiotic too! It is perfect added to smoothies, cereals or just added to water for a zesty […]
Ever have those mornings when you feel you have to make a decision between shower or breakfast? I am all for trying to save time in the mornings but never at the expense of breaking my fast, hell no! I hold breakfast on such a high pedestal that I will happily have breakfast for dinner any night of the week. I really do believe the saying that it’s the most important meal of the day. I feel the kids are more experimental with their meals first thing as they are so hungry and with a good filling breakfast to start the day you have all the energy you need to get through the morning to lunch. Let’s face it though, some days you just don’t have time to watch the kids play catapult the blueberries or eat their toast in nibbles. You need them fed and out of their pyjamas (preferably) and on your merry way to this appointment or that. This is the moment that a smoothie comes in handy. They are so quick to make and if you’re really pressed for time, you can even take it with you! A drink for breakfast I hear you cry? Well, […]
