Its here! My FREE plant powered meal plan. Switching to a plant-based diet has really helped me feel amazing in my body. I originally started to eat vegetarian because it was cheaper but as I got more and more into this way of eating I realised it was having a profound effect on my health. I’ve always had a problematic digestive system. Nothing really helped it until I eliminated gluten and started eating a whole food plant-based diet. Now I’m not saying everyone has to become a gluten vegan, I just think everyone can benefit from adding more wholesome fruits, veggies, beans, nuts and seeds to their diet. You never know how it might help you until you give it a go. I’ve created this 7-day meal plan to show you guys how easy and delicious eating a plant-based diet can be.  Not vegan? You don’t have to be. I’ve designed it so anyone can follow the plan, whether your a vegan looking for some exciting recipes or a newbie who just wants to cut down …

5 Grain Free Breakfasts for Winter

Porridge is usually on high rotation in the cooler months for me. Its the perfect morning comfort food, easy to prepare & cheap to make. Not to mention the flavour combinations are endless! But having oats for breakfast day in day out can get a bit dull & because variety is the cornerstone of a healthy diet I’ve come up with a few grain-free breakfast ideas to brighten up your winter mornings. Quinoa Breakfast Bowl Quinoa is usually lumped into the same category as grains but its actually a seed and is naturally gluten-free. Its a great source of protein, fibre, iron, magnesium and b vitamins so it will help you power through your morning. For a delicious savoury breakfast mix, leftover cooked quinoa with pesto and serve with sauteed mushrooms, cherry tomatoes and baby spinach. Teff Porridge This is a great one for celiacs or people who can’t digest oats well but are still die-hard porridge fans. Teff, like quinoa, is actually a seed about the same side as a poppy seed and is native to Ethiopia. …

Apple & Chai Breakfast Jars

There’s nothing I love more than fresh juicy fruit in summer but as the temperature starts to drop I start to crave warming cooked foods and these baked apples are perfect for autumn breakfast. They are slowly baked in a warming mix of chai spices and coconut suger until soft then served with creamy oats & coconut yoghurt. I love using tart green apples for this recipe to balance out the sweet chai spices. This is a great make-ahead breakfast as it keeps well in the fridge and the flavours get better over time. It’s delicious with the porridge served hot topped with warm baked apples. If you want it warm just heat the oat mix on the stove and top with the apples straight from the oven. I’ve also put a basic chai spice mix in which you can make a bulk batch of then use it for chai lattes or tea as well, alternatively cinnamon will work great as a replacement.
