Jackfruit & Buckwheat Beet Burger

Jackfruit & Buckwheat Beet Burger
Check out this stacked burger! I wanted to create something 'meaty' and delicious. Made with Jackfruit, Beet and Buckwheat it's also brimming with vitamins and nutrients.

Grilled Grapefruit with Cardamon Clove & Ginger

Grilled Grapefruit with Cardamon Clove & Ginger
Rich in antioxidants and vitamins, grapefruit can provide an array of anti-ageing benefits like evening skin tone and fighting off free radicals. When eaten, it provides the body with important nutrients, essential for healthy skin.

Vegan Hash Browns

Vegan Hash Browns
Breakfast is the most difficult meal of the day to incorporate veggies! This is why I usually start my day with a green juice - packed with lots of leafy greens. But at a weekend it's nice to have something a little more indulgent. These sweet potato hash browns are perfect. Golden and crispy on the outside, soft on the inside and there's extra veg sneaked in there too! 

Cranberry and Hazelnut Granola

Cranberry and Hazelnut Granola
The great thing about granola is that it only requires a few simple base ingredients ... then you can add whichever dried fruits, nuts and seeds you have handy.

Savoury Spinach and Vegan Cheese Muffins

Savoury Spinach and Vegan Cheese Muffins
Breakfast muffins are a really great option for a healthy, filling, morning grab-and-go food. I like to bake mine on a Sunday and store in a tin for the week ahead. My favourite savoury flavour is vegan cheese and spinach ... but you could add carrots, peas, grated courgette (zucchini) whatever works for you. 

Beetroot Ginger & Apple Pancakes

Beetroot Ginger & Apple Pancakes
Beetroot is so good for our skin. Drinking a glass of juice purifies blood and eliminates toxins, leaving us with a healthy and glowing complexion. Beetroot tastes pretty earthy and that's why it works so well with lighter, fresh flavours such as apple, ginger and lemon.

Almond Butter Muffins with Choc Chip Cream

Almond Butter Muffins with Choc Chip Cream
I had serious sweet cravings today. There's something about snowy days that make me want to curl up by the fire eating all of the food!! The good thing about these muffins is that they're so big and fluffy and filling ... you genuinely don't feel as though you need to eat all six to be full :) 

Mushroom & Caramelised Onion Gravy

Mushroom & Caramelised Onion Gravy
What is a Sunday dinner without gravy? Dry and miserable is what it is! Most shop-bought gravies contain gluten, potato starch, sugar and E numbers. This is a super simple gravy recipe and much more delicious than the shop bought granules. 

Mac n Cauli Cheese

Mac n Cauli Cheese

I've been asked by a few people today what on earth it's meant to be used for, so let me share with you one of my favourite quick and simple recipes. There's something satisfying and comforting about Mac & Cauli Cheese. And with zero dairy + lots of turmeric, your skin will appreciate it too. 

Katsu Curry

Katsu Curry
I figured I'd take a look through some of my Japanese recipe books and work out how to create a skin friendly alternative - but as it happens I barely need to make any changes to the traditional method of making this awesome Japanese curry.

Autumn Persimmon Porridge

Autumn Persimmon Porridge
Have you tried a persimmon fruit yet?! For ages I called them permission fruit :) genuinely not realising my mistake!! Persimmon is a Latin word - it means “food of the gods.” They've become a bit of an autumn thing in UK supermarkets these past few years and are relatively inexpensive.

Apricot Dark Chocolate Flapjacks

Apricot Dark Chocolate Flapjacks
I'm a big flapjack fan!! These little chewy gooey beauties offer just the right amount of sweetness, topped with my favourite bitter dark chocolate.
