You know, I never really understood the whole peanut butter and jelly thing. It just didn’t really seem like two things that would go together. Maybe it had something to do with the fact that being allergic to nuts meant that I had no idea what peanut butter was like. Or because being in England, I had a completely different idea about what jelly was. It took me a while to realise the whole thing was actually about jam! But since making my own free from butter, I’m obsessed with this strange combo!
I love quick and easy recipes. The ones that you can whip up in about 30 minutes for a wholesome and hearty meal that leaves you feeling full up and satisfied. Food that’s full of flavour and can only be described as delicious. These are without a doubt my favourite type of meals. So today I’m sharing one of those very recipes. An absolute favourite in my house, that goes down well every single time. A basic homemade tomato sauce. I know, you can’t really get more basic than that!
I seriously love sweet potatoes; as a soft mash alternative, fried until crispy on the hob or perfectly roasted until deliciously crunchy. I don’t think I’ve ever found a variation that I haven’t completely loved! That’s why on Plant Power Day, I knew I had to celebrate with a delicious bowl of my favourite sweet potato fries.
I know that a lot of people find them boring, but I honestly love big salad bowls. There are so many different things that you can add to them, the variations really are endless! Swap out the protein, change the healthy fat around, or just add a whole heap of different veggies to the bowl. Whatever you do or however you eat them, I find them absolutely delicious. Today, I thought that I’d share one of my favourite and most eaten salad bowls. Easy to put together, delicious and super healthy. Introducing my lentil salad bowl.
I know that around this time of year most people vow to eat healthier. To cut the sugar, avoid the pizza and skip the extra snack between meals. But sometimes after trying your hardest to make the ‘right’ choices, you’re still left with a little craving.
Whether your weakness is crisps, chocolate or something else all together; I know it can be really hard to resist and head straight for your favourite comfort food. But, you should never cut out snacks completely! What you really need is to find something else that satisfies your craving and keeps you going until your next meal.
