Who doesn’t love a good no bake chocolate brownie whipped up in 10 minutes, loaded with fibre & full of antioxidants? A pretty good sell if you ask me!
You will need a processor for this so if you haven’t invested in a good one yet and enjoy a good raw treat I recommend keeping your eyes peeled for a good deal on one. I couldn’t live without mine in the kitchen and find raw treats a quick go to for my early mornings on the run.
I love tomato chutney and making a quick homemade ones allows you to avoid any excess sugars, salts and nothing beast knowing exactly whats in your food! And with Christmas just around the corner.. this will make the perfect gift, add it to a cheese platter on Christmas day or serve with your full breakfast Christmas morning!!
We had some potatoes left over from last night and I figured what would make a good seasonal dish so whipped up a quick curry. I always have chickpeas, some spices & coconut cream in the cupboard so this couldn’t have been easier. You can substitute in your cupboard stables!
The silly season is here and if you are anything like me- you will be eating everything in sight & using the line ‘ah sure- it’s christmas!’ so to keep you on track I recommend having some quick grab & go options at hand. This bircher couldn’t be easier & makes a delicious breakfast after a training session.
This recipe makes enough for 2-3 portions (depending on how hungry you are!) so you will get a few meals from it.
When it comes to Christmas I am a huge fan of making homemade gifts for people (not to save me from spending hours in the shops-hee hee) but because I love the personal touch it gives to a gift and have my mother to thank for my love of this as she has brought us up with a household of festive hampers loaded with homemade cakes, chutneys and good wine of course!
This recipe made a huge batch of roasted granola and it will last for up to 1 month in an airtight container. Perfectly served with coconut yoghurt, greek yoghurt &fresh fruit!
Bliss balls are the easiest grab & go treat and I love having them in the freezer as a snack before early training sessions. These little ones are like little truffles- sticky, salty & sweet!
This one bowl wonder is super quick & east to whip up and…. who doesn’t love the smell of fresh bread in the house!
Topped with some pesto, parma ham & parmesan this makes a delicious lunch!
I’m trialing a olive & sundried tomato bread by adding 2 tbsp of chopped sundried tomato, 2 tbsp olives & 1 tsp of dried Italian herbs to the dry mix before adding the water- will let you know how it goes via my Instagram :).
You can’t beat a quick protein ball and what better mix than cocoa & coffee.. 2 of my favourite things! These are super quick, easy and don’t contain a lot of ingredients so get the blender out and give it a whizz!
Note: I keep mine in the freezer in an airtight container as a grab and go option when I need- they will last forever in there.. although you will have them eaten in a few days :P.
Who doesn’t love a big mug of hot tea or coffee along side a slice of carrot cake?? I love sweet treats and am always looking at how to create a healthier option to my favourite treats. This ‘almost raw carrot cake’ is loaded with protein, fibre & good fats so it’s a guilt free treat (at least that’s what I tell myself!).
I love a good bliss ball and have recently started adding some protein to them to help keep me fuller for longer and I’m loving it. I am using whole foods protein powder which is a pea based protein and vegan friendly so I’m loving it (I’m not vegan but a huge veggie fan!). I picked up the raspberry oil in the local health shop and love it as an addition to raw recipes.
These can be whipped up in 15 minutes from start to finish so pop net flick on the laptop and get blending :).
