Perhaps it is the warmer weather or perhaps it is the packets of Purely Elizabeth and Perfect Provender (made by my lovely friend Jodie!) that have been in my pantry recently, but I’ve been on a granola kick of late. I’m always chasing that perfect crunchy granola and my latest go-to recipe includes coconut, dried […]

Many times over the last few years I have written out an “ideal” weekly workout routine. They’re usually quite aspirational, assuming that I have limitless motivation and discipline, and little to disrupt my routine. Or, they’ll be a bit of a fantasy, based on the studios I’d attend if only I lived in the correct […]

Should you do training other than just yoga?

I’m really enjoying making cookies at the moment. Over the years, M&S all-butter almond and pistachio biscuits have made a frequent appearance in my parent’s house.

White spelt flour gives a subtle nuttiness whilst still being light and fluffy, and dark chocolate matches that rich flavour. They went down an absolute treat both at work […]

Vegan spelt chocolate chip cookies

If you’ve been on Instagram or certain wellness sites recently, you may have noticed a trend for drinking celery juice. ┬áIt is claimed to aid in digestion, be anti-inflammatory, cure chronic pain and clear up skin conditions. That’s quite a lot of powerful properties from one single juiced vegetable. So where has this trend come […]

Whats up with celery juice anyway?

I’m perhaps still running on Bake Off fever from a few weeks ago, but I’m definitely feeling the the need to make comforting desserts. This fondant recipe uses a filling to create a gooey centre rather than being a “true” fondant that keeps the centre unset. Both are delicious, but this version allows you to […]
