Hi, I'm Elle

December is here, the supermarkets are filled with festive food, and while Christmas plans may look a bit different this year, food guilt can be one festive regular that just won’t budge. The Christmas period can negatively impact our relationship with food. A 2019 YouGov survey found that a quarter of people felt Christmas made […]

5 tips to enjoy Christmas without food guilt

Kombucha has really exploded onto the scene as a healthy drink option -quite literally if you’ve ever opened a bottle that’s been shook up! It’s on the more expensive side to buy, as with so many products in the wellness market, and you’re potentially limited in your flavours. Whilst I still enjoy buying bottled kombucha, […]

Kombucha home brewing guide

This week has brought me back to uni, which means fresh stationary, a new timetable and packed lunches. As well as a savoury meal, its lovely to have a box of sweeter snacks to choose from. Fruity, nutty muffins are deliciously satisfying, and a bit of Sunday baking will have you set up for the […]

Almond Butter and Blueberry Muffins (vegan)

There’s nothing like a comforting curry for winter evenings. The flavours are an alternative to more traditional Christmas fare in January. I’m especially fond of coconut curries at the moment. The creamy, rich coconut pairs beautifully with spice and heat of the curry. A serving of this curry contains at least three of your five […]

Food waste accounts for 8% of carbon emissions according to a UN study*. I’m always seeking to reduce my food waste, from being savvy when buying veg to making use of leftovers and making stock from scraps. I do however like to make juice at home, which produces a not unreasonable amount of pulp that […]

If you watched or read my kitchen tour last week, you might have spotted an unusual looking tin in one of my cupboards. Jackfruit is an ingredient that is becoming increasingly popular in both home cooking and restaurant menus. A plant-based alternative to pulled meats, jackfruit is a tropical fruit related to figs and mulberries. […]

Walnut and jackfruit tacos

One of the things I was most excited about with moving into a flat with Stuart (other than finally moving in together after nearly six years!) was having my very own kitchen. I had had four years of kitchen sharing, sometimes with people I didn’t know, plus a year back at my parents’, so I […]

Blueberry Oat Crumble

These cookies were made after struggling to get a hold of Prets dark chocolate and almond butter cookies. Due to risk of contamination with non vegan products, the cookies have jumped on and off Prets menu for the last year and have recently been reinstated without the vegan label. If you cant get the cookies […]

Vegan chocolate almond butter cookies

If you’ve never had a blondie before, sit down because you are in for a treat. Named for their similar texture to brownies, but not necessarily needing to be made from chocolate (hence the lighter colour and subsequent name), which gives you more versatility in flavour. I’m going through a bit of a coconut phase […]
