Recipe: Smoothie Bowl and Eggs

Maybe this is the most hipster phase of my breakfast life as of yet, but smoothie bowls… are pretty incredible. I know they’ve been a huge riot on different social media outlets for some time now. However, when you don’t possess a blender – there’s very little you can do to go about making these…

Recipe: Chai Banana Pancakes

In the aesthetic dreams that Pinterest and Instagram fuel, I imagine the perfectly lit kitchen smelling of healthy morning pancakes cooked on a sizzling cast iron skillet. I dream about the quiet mornings where I made breakfast for my family on a Sunday, no one yet awake, leaving me to alone start to fill the…

Recipe: Tzatziki

I’ll give you this – I’m not usually a big fan of sauces. At least making them… it’s a bit of a pain, if I’m being honest. Especially without a food processor – my patience chopping up little herbs and mixing or mashing by hand is practically zero. But in a Greek-fuelled haze, I decided…

Smoothies and Banana Bread (semi-healthy breakfast)

If you’re anything like the rest of the population, the beginning of the new year translates to some level of forced healthiness. Whether it means you work out more or you eat healthier, there’s some vague semblance of “trying” that goes around. I am no exception to this rule. Luckily, because the internet knows what…

Roasted Pumpkin, Brussel Sprouts and Chicken

If I’m being honest, this barely requires a recipe at all. I went with my gut and threw some ingredients on a sheet pan with one vague idea of what I wanted and ta-da: delicious autumnal themed┬ánoms for at least four meals! two 500g containers of chicken Spice mix: Cayenne Pepper, Paprika, Garlic Powder, Turmeric,…

Real Life Photos of Single Food Life

Living alone offers many benefits. Key point: you’re alone most of the time. You don’t have to share your chocolate stash; laundry can happen sometimes never. You can play music loudly and eat what you want. What it isn’t conducive to, however, is cooking photogenic meals. These days I find myself cooking practically – i.e….

The Simplest Stir Fry

If there’s one thing that is perfect for meal-planning and weeknight meals, it’s the simple and classic stir fry. I am fully aware that I have not been exactly on-point recently about posting recipes. In all honesty though, there’s been nothing particularly exciting about pan-frying chicken and boiling vegetables with hummus. I kid you not,…

Your Weekday Chicken & Broccoli Dish

It’s no surprise that chicken and broccoli are two of my favourite foods. In fact, I’d be shocked if I didn’t at least eat one of the two every couple of days. What’s not to like? You get protein and fiber without even trying. In this “normal” dish, I thought why not throw together something…

Stuffed Peppers

Sometimes you just have to go with the flow. If the recipe originally called for ground turkey and all you have is ground beef – that will have to do. If you realise you don’t have half of the ingredients that you need: then that suffice. I’ve been trying to take this strategy out of…

Egged-out Sweet Potatoes

What people often forget about recipes from the internet is that they have the high potential to go “wrong.” Granted, they usually don’t go as wrong as this one recipe did. They certainly won’t look Pinterest official – but there’s nothing wrong with a recipe looking “worn in.” These are things I tell myself at…

Toasted Coconut Pumpkin Oatmeal Porridge

If there’s one thing I know for sure about oatmeal, it’s that it carries with it high standards. We’ve all tasted our fair share of boring and flavourless brands of Quaker oats and brown sugar: so when a blog tells me that I’m going to want to eat this all the time, I’m skeptical. But…

New Years Start.. a teensy bit late

In the days after New Years, the gym is packed. Everyone is determined to complete their New Years resolutions: to be more active, more mindful and actually run a 5K. Usually I am one of those people in the gym, slightly irritated by the influx of new people always using the exact machine that I…
