Me, I just want to keep doing what I’m doing, my diet has seen me well through 2013 and apart from […]

BBQ Lentil Chilli with Guacamole and Mexican Rice

Back to Zumba again this morning, I was told there were a few new tracks in the routine so I thought I’d go have a looksie and get in on the new moves, I liked it, a little more high octane than the previous couple of classes which I quite like especially when it’s to The Black Eyed Peas “I got a feeling”, I’m dancing away as I type! Then a nice stretch out with Body Balance straight after, so feeling suitably worked out for the day. I’m really looking forward to Sunday this weekend as I’m heading to the […]

Curry Chickpea & Potato Pie, ideal comfort food.

I think I might have pie on the brain at the minute, so much so I think I may have dreamed about them last night. I made this curry pie as I wanted something spicy and had just bought some lovely Indian pickles that I wanted to get into. I was originally going to do something with mushrooms, but that can wait until next week. It is pie season after all and I can’t ever pass up the opportunity to make spicy food. I’m sure when I was falling asleep I was thinking about making almond croissants from the remaining […]

Sri Lankan Sweet Potato & Pea Curry served with Saffron and Turmeric Basmati Rice and topped with Coconut Sambal

Another day, another curry, it should be ZERO surprise to you by now that I eat a lot of curries and spicy food, I can’t help it, I’m addicted to spice! This was going to be a sweet potato and cashew curry but I realised when I served it that I’d forgotten to put the cashews in, I’m so scatty sometimes! No matter, I’d been flinging other bits and bobs in the curry as I went along, peas, green beans, toyed with the idea of spinach but then decided I had plenty of green colour in there and to save […]

Fusilli Pasta with Tangy Cherry Tomatoes & Wilted Spinach

I’ve been loving spinach recently, I’m throwing it into pretty much all my main dishes, it’s great for you and so easy to incorporate into a recipe, so it was a simple decision for me to add it to my pasta and had the additional bonus of adding a nice contrast in colour which I really like. This pasta dish took all of half an hour, maybe a little less, so it’s quick, easy and taste-tastic. Adding the mustard was a spur of the moment thing, I was looking at the pasta and thinking of ways to jazz it up […]

Veggieball Spaghetti Bolognese served with Avocado Toast

I’m trying to catch up with the recipes I’ve done in the last week and somehow forgot all about the leftover veggieball bolognese that I made, so thought I better get it on quick smart before I completely forget about it and send it to the archives never to be seen again! I used the left over mexican veggie burgers I made last week, but you can use whatever veggie burgers you can get your hands on, alternatively, if you’ve no burgers then I say just buy some big portobello mushrooms, slice them up nice and chunky and add them […]
