Simple Sunday: Toad in a hole Simit, baby cucumbers & perfectly cooked bacon! Happy Sunday 😘 . I love living so close to a Turkish market. They bake Simit fresh every morning. On the weekends my flatmate and I take turns going to get them fresh for breakfast 😏 I missed #worldeggday so this is my catch up!


Chilly nights always have me craving a bowl of squash soup. Today- Roasted Butternut Squash Soup with fennel & ginger. Topped with yoghurt, harissa, crispy chickpeas and pul biber! What is your go-to autumnal soup?


Ahhh Sunday’s. Comfort food and comfy pants day! These low-carb, semi guilt-free Bolognese stuffed eggplants are SO delicious and the perfect comfort food. Recipe is on the blog! 🤤


I’ve already started to crave chewy Ginger Molasses’s cookies 🙈. I spiced these with a hint of cardamom and used treacle instead of molasses because I can’t find it anywhere here! (🇬🇧Pls tell me if You know where I can find molasses!!). I also coated them in granulated as well as Turbinado sugar for extra crunch! 🍪


Doing what I love on a daily basis is a blessing but it sure is a lot of work. We all need some downtime; a moment to reflect and take it all in. Catching up with friends over a cup of coffee and tea is what it's all about, especially with these new @Mcvitiesofficial Moments. With three different #McVitiesMoments flavours: Salted Caramel Billionaire, Honeycomb Crunch and Choccy Rocky Road, we’ve got plenty to snack on. Lucky to be able to share these moments with friends. . . . . #SweeterTogether #Ad #McVitiesMoments @mcvitiesofficial


Swooning over these blooms 😍


I love this time of year, pomegranate season!!!! 😀Going to be devouring this salad tonight and many nights ahead. Tahini Kale Caesar with spiced crispy chickpea “croutons” and pomegranate arils! 😁


Happy Friday!! Hungry? Me too! You gotta add this one to your recipe repertoire! For everyone who asked the recipe for these Low carb - Easy Bolognese Stuffed Eggplants is up on the blog! Just in time for the weekend too 😀 link in bio 🔝


What’s a birthday without cake? Rose & Vanilla, floral adorned cake for my lovely aunt! Would you love a cake like this?


Low carb dinners are on the menu these days. My skin has been SO irritated from crap bread, sugar and junk. So I’m back on track to eating better again. ➡️ Bolognese stuffed eggplant “parmigiana”! They’re quite easy to make and there’s no frying needed! Do you guys want the recipe?


Healthy meals are a must after such an indulgent summer. Cauliflower Steaks with Chimichurri and a side of sweet potato fries hit the spot! The recipe will be in @veggieeboxuk and bonus, the veg is already cleaned trimmed and ready to cook!


I love the UK and their love for pies! I’m enjoying the new global flavour selection from @ginstersofcornwall ! This is their flavourful Katsu Chicken slice. Filled with a coconut milk based Katsu Chicken Curry using 100% British farmed chicken, wrapped in a tender and golden puff pastry. I like mine served hot and straight from the oven but they can definitely be eaten cold too. It’s a perfect quick and a #ProperlyTasty solution for a meal on-the-go, at the desk or at home. Try their other global flavour, rich and spicy Piri Piri Chicken as well. #ad #TasteofCornwall @ginstersofcornwall


Who else loves wraps & sandwiches?? I’m obsessed with making and eating these Lettuce Wraps. They’re basically a salad wrap! This one has iceberg lettuce, rocket, ham, red pepper, avocado & Dutch cheese. I tested making it the night before and it held up really well! Just don’t put any condiments on it until you eat it!


Carrot cake vs. Cheesecake. Why not both?! Cheesecake topped carrot cake! Which would you chose? 🥕🎂🧀


This delicious and creamy Cauliflower and Mushroom Risotto is coming to @veggieeboxuk soon! Paleo, gluten free & the prep work is already done for you!


Raspberry cheesecake 🌀 buns pre-bake! 😍 #baking


Who wants a slice?? 🍕There’s nothing like homemade pizza! 😍. Testing several pizza doughs at work and I’ll never get sick of it! Dough is so fascinating #foodnerd.


Yes, I ate both of them. No, I don’t wanna Taco ‘bout it! 😅. Who wants to come over for the next brunch? Homemade Kale tortillas, @brindisaspanishfoods Spicy Bravas sauce, seared halloumi, avocado 🥑, pickled onions, cilantro and @clarence_court fried 🍳!
