Chocolate Coconut ("Bounty") Oatmeal

After a wonderful delivery of some Alpro Coconut Original arrived on my doorstep I knew it was going to make a spectacular appearance in my breakfast somewhere, and seeing as I’m on a chocolate oat roll the combination of coconut and chocolate just seemed logical! It’s delicious and creamy and tastes like a melted bounty bar in oatmeal form. Dessert for breakfast – what more could you possibly want?!...more

Lentil and Kale Dahl

This is my absolute favourite curry at the moment (although my boyfriend would disagree – mango curry is his favourite!), and was also featured on the Organic Burst OB Life page (link here) yay. I like to make a large batch and then eat it over the next few days as it tastes even better after a day or two in the fridge (not for longer though!)....more

Raw Almond Butter Balls

I’m on an almond butter craze at the moment, I think I’ve eaten it every day recently without fail. But when it’s something that is so good for you with so many healthy fats and protein then why not? Over the weekend I was alone at home for a few hours and decided to whip up these almond butter balls. They are so quick to make and so so delicious you will consume copious amounts of mixture while making them, and once you have made them they will disappear very quickly!...more

A basil plant! It cost us GBP1.19, which, we thought was reasonable, but that is assuming it doesn’t wilt within a week and the seedlings do continue to grow. It was an interesting experience for the both of us, primarily because we’ve never consumed anything freshly plucked from a plant, and also because we’ve never taken care of anything else other than ourselves....more

Ants on a log: Healthy snack idea for school or work

It might still feel like summer outside, but there’s no denying that it’s already back to school season.  Cue Debbie Downer music!  Although it’s been years since I last set foot in a classroom, I still get that optimistic, hopeful feeling whenever early September rolls around.  Living in a university town helps fuel that nostalgia and excitement, and I never get tired of it....more

Easy Peasy Peach Tarts

When Aldo saw the shopping list for the week, he got super excited because he saw that cookies were on the list. But the cookies were on the list because I needed to get them for an event at work. The look of disappointment on his face was heartbreaking. So I told him I would make a dessert for us....more

Fuel Your Run: Real Food Alternatives

Amber @ Fit, Foodie Runs: http://www.fitfoodieruns.comAbout a year ago, I had a conversation with my friend (who has achieved many marathons) and she told me they serve the runners pizza, perogies and potatoes throughout her races.
