Baked Indian Curry Spiced Falafel

ow I know to some people this will be an absolute crime against Middle Eastern cuisine, but in my eyes rules are meant to be broken and when the results are this good it’s totally worth it!  I am a huge lover of falafel, and I’m a huge lover of curry and Indian food, so why not combine the two?...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

Quinoa Avocado Sushi

Most of the time I’m too lazy to put a lot of effort into my lunch, so I generally go for a (mostly) raw salad that takes 5-10 minutes to put together. But sometimes it’s nice to have something a little more fancy, and so enters my quinoa avocado sushi. I prefer to use quinoa as it’s quicker to cook than brown rice plus it contains a lot of protein, and adding mashed avocado to it really helps it all stick together just like sushi rice would. For the fillings you can use anything you like! In the images below I used cucumber, orange pepper, and purple cabbage....more

Blueberry Chia Seed Pudding

Blueberry Chia Seed Pudding! So good news, I am currently on my couch in yoga pants watching Parks and Rec. Bad news I woke up at 5:30 AM....Since I work out at 5 AM, Monday through Friday, it is really hard for me to sleep in. I use to be so envious of all those kids in high school who could sleep in until 1 every weekend....more

How to Cook the Perfect Pot of Quinoa

I love quinoa, I really do.  Even though some foodie websites proclaim that this mighty grain has jumped the shark, I can argue with zeal that quinoa's day has yet to come. Quinoa is a whole grain, high in protein, GMO-free, gluten-free and a superior plant protein.  It doesn't get much better than that when it comes to the food we need to be eating to stay healthy and well....more
Great suggestions, I hadn't thought about it as a breakfast option, so I'll try it out. We just ...more

Healthy Vegan Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

I have a real weakness for baked goods. Nothings says comfort to me like a cup of tea and something warm from the oven. Even though I now avoid flour, sugar and dairy, I still crave a cookie now and then, so I've been working on recipes for healthy alternatives. The family was skeptical that I could come up with a cookie that would be both healthy and tasty, but I won them over with this recipe....more

Healthy blueberry and apple jam recipe

I am sure many of you love jam, I certainly do. But the ones we get from the supermarket are loaded with added sugar, colorings and preservatives, which aren’t good for your health or your waistline. I decided to make my own and that way I am in control what ingredients I use. And I try to go for the healthiest options.Today I am making a blueberry and apple jam.  And trust me, it doesn’t last very long, as I “destroy” it in a matter of days :) I have it with my protein pancakes, toast or porridge....more
