This is a really easy recipe to make and in a few minutes you have created a tray of healthy snacks for the family! I’ve added a link to a short video below for the recipe if you would rather watch it.
Sesame Seeds x 2 Cups
Medjool Dates x 1 Cup
Organic Cacao (powder) – 1/2 cup
Vanilla Extract – 1Tbsp
Pinch of good quality sea salt
Agave Syrup (raw or the best quality you can find)
Superfood Toppings (optional)
Add the sesame seeds to the food processor and grind on high for a minute or two, add in the medjool dates and blend again on high for about 5 minutes. Add in the cacao powder, vanilla, salt and a squirt of Agave syrup if the mixture is too dry. You should then have a slightly sticky dough consistency (not too sticky).
Roll the mixture into balls or shape in a chocolate tray as per the video. Add superfood toppings of your choice if you have available.
I hope you enjoy this super easy recipe. Please subscribe to my Youtube channel for future recipes and holistic health tips and ideas.

4tsp of ground cumin seeds
2 tsp of coriander seeds
4 Large tomatoes grated
Tin of carton of cannellini beans or other beans of choice
Additional chopped greens of choice
1-2tsp of Garam Masala
Salt & Pepper
Melt the coconut oil in a large pan, add in the cinnamon sticks and cook lightly for a minute or two. Add in the cardamon pods for a few minutes and then the onions, garlic cloves, chopped ginger and chopped vegetables.

Add in the beans and some additional greens like spinach or kale and simmer lightly for a few minutes, add the garam masala and season with salt and pepper.
I cook my bulghar wheat in my rice cooker on the white rice setting with a little vegetable stock and sometimes some extra greens. You can also cook it in a pan of water similar to how you would cook white rice.

Oh this was soooo yummy! Lots of fresh colourful vegetables with a little tofu cooked in a Goan Curry paste and coconut milk. This has got to be one of my new favourite recipes, its so easy to make (as most of my recipes are) and is really delicious and nutritious. I had a wholemeal flatbread on the side with this dish and it was perfect for dipping in the coconut sauce mmm. You could also serve this with some brown rice and a few salad items.
Coconut Oil 2 x tbsp
Chopped garlic cloves x 3-4
Fresh Lemongrass (tbsp of chopped)
Galangal (thumb piece of)
Sliced 2 x small red/green chillies
Goan Curry Paste 3-4tbsp
Coconut Milk x 1 tin
Tofu or marinated tofu pieces
Coconut Sugar (Optional)
Stir fry the garlic, lemongrass, galangal, chilies and onions for 5-10 minutes on a medium heat. Add the remaining vegetables and cook through with some additional water until almost tender, add in the Goan curry paste and stir. Add in the coconut milk and a little soy sauce and tofu pieces. Season with salt, pepper and a dash of soy! You can also add a little coconut sugar for sweetness if you like. Cook through until tofu is warmed up.
Serve with rice, breads, salad and smiles!

I love this dish, the sauce is light but with a good flavour, you could also use this recipe to make a speedy lasagne! I like to top mine with chopped chilies for some heat and some red onion or other salad ingredients but you could add chillies into the main cooking stage if you prefer. I added some beans into this recipe but they are not essential, I was just using up some fridge ingredients.
Carrots chopped into small cubes
Celery chopped into small pieces
Green Pepper chopped into small cubes
Tomato Puree x 4 tbsp
Oregano (dried or fresh or parsley)
Chill powder (optional)
Salt & Pepper
Cook the wholewheat spaghetti in boiling salted water for around 15 minutes until cooked through. Meanwhile cook up the chopped garlic, onions and chillies (optional) for a few minutes then add in the rest of the chopped vegetables and a little vegetable stock to simmer away until cooked. Add in the lentils, tomato puree and tinned tomatoes and simmer away for a few minutes then add in the herbs (oregano). Add in a little chilli powder to spice it up if you wish at the end. Add in extra stock to create enough sauce and simmer to thicken. Serve with the cooked pasta.

I love Mexican food and especially easy mexican recipes! I made this really quick meal tonight for myself. You could mix the veggies up a bit and use your own favourite vegetables. It’s basically some garlic curly kale with mexican flavoured peppers and mushrooms with refried beans, homemade guacamole and homemade salsa. I love using shiitake mushrooms, not only are they super nutritious but they are really meaty and a good replacement for the meaty meals! 🙂 I’ve broken the recipe up as follows:
Red onion finely chopped
Chilies (optional, I left out as the kids were eating it)
Salt & pepper
Chop up all of the cherry tomatoes, blend very lightly if you wish, add in a squeeze of lime, finely chopped red onion, sliced chilies, and chopped coriander and season to serve.
A spoon of salsa
Salt and Pepper
Mash up a whole avocado or more if your making a bigger quantity. Add in a squeeze of lime to your tastes, a spoon of the salsa, chopped coriander and season to serve.
I used tinned mexican beans…mmm…you can make your own by mashing up pinto beans with stock garlic, water and seasonings.
3 Garlic Cloves Chopped
Cook the kale up in a little water with the chopped garlic and onions and simmer until tender. Season to serve.
Mexican Spiced Peppers & Meaty Mushrooms
Red Peppers Sliced
Shiitake or other meaty mushrooms sliced
Mexican Spice Mix
Fry up the peppers, onions and mushrooms in a little olive oil or water and add the spice mix to your tastes. Season and serve.
Serve everything up in a warm wholemeal wrap and enjoy! If you enjoyed this recipe please subscribe to this website for future recipes and my youtube channel for further recipes, holistic health and wellbeing ideas!
Love and Meaty Mushrooms
This curry is super easy to make and so delicious and creamy! There are loads of colourful vegetables and greens in this recipe and you could mix the vegetables up a bit depending on what you have available. I served it with some brown rice or you could also use white or some cous cous.

1 super hot sliced Chilli
Small bunch of Green Beans
1 Red Pepper
Mushrooms ( about 6)
Cannelini Beans ( half a tin)
Sweetcorn ( 4-5tbsp)
Two handfuls of chopped spinach
Curry Powder (4-5tbsp or to taste)
Cream (dairy free – oat or soy)
Salt & Pepper
Chop up all the vegetables in small pieces, cook the garlic, onion, and sliced chilli in a little water or use some olive oil. Add all the chopped vegetables apart from the spinach and simmer down for about 15-20 mins under everything is cooked through. Add in the spinach, curry powder and seasonings and cook for about 5 mins. Add in the dairy free cream of choice until the recipe is nice and creamy.

Ok I know the colour is absolute yuk…but not all of my smoothies come out in beautiful pastel colours! lol! 😉
Super easy to make, simply blend all of the ingredients in the list and add in some of your own if you wish.
Handful of Blueberries
A few tbsp of live coconut yoghurt
A tbsp of Cacao Powder
A tsp of Super Mushroom powder (you could add in a Superfood Mushroom supplement of choice)
A splash of almond milk and Water
This is a super nutritious blend combined together. Check out some of the links below for further research and information on these superfoods.
Cacao powder is chocolate in its raw and natural state, its super nutritious. Click below for access to a really interesting article on the benefits of Cacao Powder. There is loads of information online regarding the health benefits of Cacao, I would recommend doing further research in this area. You can also make your own Raw healthy Chocolate with cacao powder…yes chocolate can be healthy. You can buy Cacao Powder in the supermarket but I find its better value to buy it in bulk. Check out the brand below for a high quality raw product.
Super Mushroom Powder
I use a blend from Indigo Herbs, I absolutely love their products and find their powders deep in colour and very high quality. They are a Uk company. I’ve added a link to the super mushroom powder that I use below. There are instructions provided with how much to take, do your research and go easy, its very powerful!

I used some Lemon Coconut yoghurt to make this awesome and super quick fruit salad with chia seeds and walnuts. Me and the boys shared this after lunch and it was divine!
Chopped up fruit of choice
Coconut flavoured yoghurt or other dairy free yoghurt
Chopped nuts of choice
Maple Syrup (optional)
Basically all you need to do is chop up all of the fruit you wish to use and top with the yoghurt, sprinkle with some chia seeds and chopped nuts of choice and its ready to serve! You could also drizzle a little maple syrup over the top if you wish for that sweet tooth family member.
Chia Seeds are super awesome and have been used for thousands of years. Check out the link below for some further reading!
They are pretty easy to purchase in most supermarkets these days. I bought mine from Tesco but you can get them online also. Click below to buy them in bulk. I find this particular bulk option is cheaper and obviously lasts a lot longer.

I made a really simple organic beetroot juice this morning! It was divine! This was a great choice for me to drink before my Step Aerobics, I felt so strong and energetic after this powerful antioxidant packed juice!
(I did share this massive glass with the kids) 😉
1 whole pack of celery
2 large pieces of tumeric root
Chop all the pieces and put through the juicer, it sometimes helps to add the softer items with the hard. Drink immediately or store in a tightly sealed jar. Check out some of the awesome ingredients below.
Tumeric is a powerful ingredient and is thought to be a great anti inflammatory. You can purchase it in powder format but if your juicing it I would recommend getting the fresh root. I’ve included some links for the powder and the root format, you can use both in smoothies but I would personally recommend the fresh for juicing. You can also juice with a little pineapple to create an awesome tumeric shot! 😀
Beetroot is also thought to help the body in a variety of ways during exercise. I have included a link to a good blog post I have read for some further research you may wish to read. https://www.endurancesportsnutritionist.co.uk/blog/using-beetroot-juice-to-boost-endurance-sports-performance/
