Garlic Mushroom, Thyme & Goats Cheese Toast

I could almost always have a cheese and Marmite sandwich for lunch, especially when I’m on my own.  No brain power required.  Fills a hole.  No further thought until supper time.  But when I jolt myself out of my rut and start pulling ingredients out of the fridge in a ‘ready steady cook’ style challengeContinue reading “Garlic Mushroom, Thyme & Goats Cheese Toast”

Pink Potato, Fennel & Leek Soup

The temperature has dropped again and it seems like everyone is poorly… Mine included.  So we’re bundled up with sniffs and snivels and only hot soup and toast will do.  That along with chamomile tea and ginger biscuits!  No problem though, snuggling on the sofa and reading back to back Roald Dahl is a treat…Continue reading “Pink Potato, Fennel & Leek Soup”

It’s a tropical winter warmer… Sweet & fruity, but wonderfully warming on a cold winter’s morning… Porridge sets me up until lunch, providing there’s enough protein in it.  I definitely couldn’t get by on oats and milk, but the addition of coconut milk, and or nuts and seeds keeps me going.  I absolutely love thatContinue reading “Papaya & Coconut Porridge”

Mighty Minestrone & Other Winter Warmers

In the thick of this cold snap, bundled up in chunky knitwear and just as I was gloating that I haven’t been ill since I can’t remember, it hit me.  The worst cold virus I’ve had since I can’t remember… hot & cold, aching all over, 3 days on the sofa and counting and mostContinue reading “Mighty Minestrone & Other Winter Warmers”

Raw Winter Slaw

This is a lovely accompaniment to a hot buttery jacket potato.  Is there ever a time when a jacket potato isn’t a good meal option?  OK, so I recently found out that it’s not one of your five a day (sad face), but they’re full of fibre, vitamins and are a healthy source of carbohydratesContinue reading “Raw Winter Slaw”

Spinach & Red Lentil Chilli, Guac & Coriander Cashew Cream with Baked Sweet Potato

This is a feel good supper.  It’s filling and hearty without being bloaty and guilty!  I’ve been reading a brilliant book recently called ‘Gut’ by Giulia Enders, its really accessible for unsciency types like me, and really insightful when it comes to understanding how we digest food, how long it takes and what a powerful,Continue reading “Spinach & Red Lentil Chilli, Guac & Coriander Cashew Cream with Baked Sweet Potato”
