Roast miso and garlic aubergine with tahini sauce

As the fresh chill and bright hues of Autumn creep into our days with the inevitable turn of the year’s wheel, I find myself reaching for heartier foods, bolder flavours and certain nutrient-dense, omega-heavy ingredients that herald the coming inward call. And so, I was reminded this week of the […]

Feta and tomato everything sauce

You might have noticed, from my visible slowing down on the online side of life, that raising an 18 month old is keeping me quite busy. The thing is, though, it’s a different type of busy-ness than I knew before I was a mama. It’s more a presence, a being, […]

Gluten-free flax and almond bread

I’ve written a couple of bread recipes – I’m no specialist and it doesn’t come that easy – and until now the courgette and almond loaf from my book was our go-to gluten-free option, cramming in as it does such a good amount of greens, protein, fats and fibre. I […]

Spiced tahini and cardamom porridge with sautéed banana

Feta and roast vegetable frittata muffins

In nutrition clinic, I so often see that, for whatever reason, many of us aren’t eating enough protein. Protein provides the building blocks for all our bodily systems and it is so important for optimal vitality and wellness. Through recent diet fads and a much-needed move away from constant meat […]

Homemade body butter

Two months into motherhood and now, more than ever, I feel my time is rarely my own; the advantage of this is that it is forcing me to strip away anything unnecessary, unhelpful or less-than from my daily routines and rituals – and where any sort of fuss might fall by the […]

Free-from banana and fig flapjacks

It’s hard to sit down and type anything about the last few weeks now that I’m a mother. The journey has been so all-encompassing, so full to the brim of every emotion, of a love I never knew, of challenges, choices and non-stop growth… and amongst it all has been […]
