Beans are a fantastic way to add more fiber and protein to your diet. I might come from the land of baked beans on toast but beans are actually pretty versatile in the kitchen! One of my favorite ways to prepare them is by throwing them into soups and stews. Whether you’re vegan or just looking to add more nutrient dense meals into your day then a bean soup has to be one of the most economical and convenient ways of doing exactly that. Soup is so easy to make in bulk and transport with you to work or reheat at home after a long day at the office.
The end of September is in sight, which means people are already eagerly planning their Halloween costumes and enjoying a reprieve from the scorching sun.

Just because you’re a vegetarian, it doesn’t mean that you have to resign yourself to quorn and tofu day in and day out in order to meet your protein needs.

Curry is something I came to associate with being unhealthy at some point in my life. Probably not long after I left university where Curry night socials were a regular weekly feature! It’s usually high in fat, high in carbs and impossible to track accurately if you’re eating out.

So I thought it was about time I cracked the case and figured out how a delicious curry could be perfectly healthy & macro-friendly. This turned out super low-fat and easy to portion out so that you can be confident you’re hitting your macros accurately. I was so happy with how it worked out!
