I love No Bake Energy Balls, they are super easy to make and grab out of the fridge, they travel great and they taste like a treat. What I love the most about them is that you can mix it however you like to suit your taste, but in general, they are made from just a few simple ingredients that you always have on hand. I have been trying a lot of recipes with oats recently because they are high in fibre and keep you fuller for longer and this recipe for healthy oat energy balls is a winner. All the ingredients were mixed together in just a few minutes, and as someone with a sweet tooth, they are a great, healthy snack. read more
My favourite thing to eat at Pizza Express is their Pollo Pesto Pasta, I’m obsessed with it. It has Chicken, mushrooms, red onion, mozzarella, Gran Moravia cheese and pesto sauce, absolutely delicious but it will definitely leave you with a whole lot of regret afterwards. So the other day I decided to try and make a slightly healthier version (by that, I mean using a healthier Pasta and without the cheese) at home and it tasted almost exactly the same. So here is my take on a healthy chicken pesto pasta.
I love rice, I eat some type of rice every Sunday (if you’re Nigerian, you know what I’m talking about) so after reading an article on how white rice is overly processed and should be cut out or limited, I was gutted and I started trying to limit how much rice I ate. However, for the past few weeks I started the Whole 30 process (more on this in another post) and I have cut out rice completely from my diet so it has been a long process trying to find alternatives for rice. But fear not, I have found a really good way to substitute rice in fried rice. So if you are looking to cut down your carbs or give up rice, then this cauliflower fried rice recipe is the one. It is guilt free, paleo/ whole 30 compliant, easy to cook and it is really tasty too.
I have found the ultimate banana bread recipe, it is low fat, extremely moist and best of all Vegan. I decided to play around with some of my recipes and challenge myself to create a Vegan cake that actually tastes good. I first tried it with a Carrot cake and it turned out so well that when I put it to a taste test, none of my tasters (the kids in the house) knew the difference between the vegan version and the non-vegan version. So it only felt right to try it once again with one of my favourite recipes, Banana bread. And it turned out amazing! So enough talking, I will share my banana bread recipe, let me know how it turns out for you.
