Chestnut and caramelised apple and pear pancakes

I’ve been on a massive pancake kick recently. It’s probably because I associate pancakes with the comfort food of my childhood and right now, I seem to like the idea of getting a bit of comfort through food. Analyse that how you will. Other foods […]

Don’t forget about your gut.

Remember what Hipprocrates said so long ago: All disease begins in the gut. In our modern world, we’ve forgotten a lot of this and rely on band-aid solutions to get us through whatever ails us. Our gut and the bacteria within in are so important. […]

Clean eating? Healthy eating? What about nutritious eating?

There’s been a lot of chatter in the media this week about the end of ‘clean eating’, with many disavowing this term, saying that it has led to a rise in disordered eating and anorexia. The denouement of the majority of these pieces tend to […]

Have you tried seed cycling?

I first heard about seed cycling a couple years ago on a natural health podcast and found it very intriguing. The basic principle of seed cycling is that it is possible to use the primary micronutrients in a few seeds to help balance female sex […]

Foodie things I’ve bought, foodie things I want 

I love my Instant Pot. I got it on Prime Day earlier this year and it has become an amazing addition to my kitchen appliance arsenal. My bone broths are so much more gelatinous because of it and my pulled pork is so flavourful. Get it! […]

How can we create a better food culture in the UK?

On our trip to Rye, we ventured over to Camber Beach a few times, excited about the prospect of warm late summer days of sand and surf. It definitely felt weird to be on the beach in England (I grew up with summer holidays visiting […]

Sweet Potato & Dukkah Crisps

We’re into the dog days of summer and the weather has gotten exceptionally warm here in London. No complaints here – I adore hot weather and any opportunity to spend some time getting some vitamin D. Happily, my enforced furlough at work has coincided with […]

Cinnamon, Date & Cashew More Balls

I made these very moreish date, cashew, seeds and cinnamon balls on Saturday and needless to say, they were almost all gone by Monday morning. Hence the name, more balls – you know, because you want more! They’re a really nice variation on the date […]

You and your gut.

What is gut bacteria, the gut microbiome and why are people talking about it so much lately? There has been a huge surge of interest recently, off the back of a lot more research into this area. Here are some of the key terms that are worth […]

Refreshing Strawberry and Mint Ice Lollies

It’s FINALLY summer here in London and I’ve been experimenting with some fun warm weather recipes. You know, the type of food that you want to eat when the temperature rises and you desperately need to cool down. I made this ice lollies at the weekend […]

Simple Baked Wild Salmon and Vegetables

I threw this together early this week after a long day of clinics when I knew we needed to eat well and I couldn’t justify the expense (both caloric and monetary) of ordering in. From start to finish, the meal took me 30 minutes, including […]

Courgetti Bolognaise

This is truly one of my go-to dishes. I love making a big pot of the bolognaise on a Sunday and then having it as a part of easy meals throughout the week.  I like to eat the sauce with spiralised carrots or courgettes or […]

Frittata with Sauteed Peppers and Courgette

I’ve been itching to make a frittata for a while now. The opportunity struck today when I massively over ordered eggs (accidentally!) in this week’s Ocado grocery delivery. I’ll admit that I’ve never made one before, so I relied on some advice from my husband […]

Roasted Broccoli with Avocado Oil & Za’atar

I’m a huge fan of Middle Eastern food, especially the seasonings and spices. Dukkah, which is actually more of a spice blend than a spice, is on constant rotation in my kitchen and I’m starting to use za’atar a lot often more too. What is […]

Green Smoothies For Beginners

  Since last August, I’ve been on a massive smoothie kick. It started when I got a bit of food poisoning after eating some dodgy mangosteen that I brought back from Jakarta. I had having omelettes for breakfast most mornings, but just couldn’t stomach them […]
