Calling all coffee lovers! We have a frozen mocha treat for you here that comes with a surprising twist. Cauliflower and ice cream!? You bet! It’s the surprise ingredient here. When used frozen it helps to add thickness and gets you closer to that 800 grams of fruits and veggies! If you love crunchy toppings like I do, try adding some cacao nibs as sprinkles. Chopped nuts, granola and coconut flakes would also be super tasty additions to compliment each mouthful of mocha deliciousness.
It’s officially fall and apple picking season is in full swing! This recipe is full of fall flavors with ingredients like butternut squash and cinnamon. It will leave your house smelling oh-so wonderful! This is a great side dish or could even stand alone as a healthier dessert option in place of your typical apple crisps and pies.
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. Although it’s still pretty toasty down here in Florida, as the weather starts to turn, there’s nothing I love more than cranking the AC and enjoying a rich and warming bowl of spicy pumpkin soup.

I love banana bread as much as the next person! It goes wonderfully with a cup of tea on a gloomy day when you need a little afternoon pick-me-up. If you’re in the mood to get your baking on but spend less than 5 minutes in the kitchen then give this zucchini bread a go!
Hurrah it’s Sunday! A day of rest for most of us, either from work or from working out, Sundays provide that smug sense of satisfaction when getting into bed on a Saturday night knowing that you don’t have to set the alarm. But lie-ins and wod-free days aside, my favourite thing about Sundays is pancakes! And I suspect I’m not alone…
Going to the cinema can be a great way to enjoy a night out, free from the distraction of kids, pets and our phones! But it can also open us up to some hard-wired habits and cravings. Movie snacks are typically delicious but also calorically dense. Popcorn, Kazoozles, ice cream, M&Ms – are anyone else’s taste buds salivating? When you’re sat there in the dark it’s easy to let the intoxicating effects of those sugary treats take control.
Protein shakes are a fantastic way to fuel your muscles after a great workout, but simply combining protein powder and water can be pretty boring and bland. By adding ice and a few other tasty ingredients you can turn that boring smoothie into a delicious dessert.
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. Legumes and grains can offer a decent serving of protein as well as providing lots of essential vitamins and minerals. These spicy little sweetcorn fritters are the perfect way to start your day or to enjoy on a bed of greens at lunch.
