Simple Spring Greens with a Citrus Tahini Dressing (& some tips on dealing with anxiety)

Sometimes you just need something super simple that comes together quickly and has all the feelings of the current season. This is one of those situations. I love spring greens and right now there is an abundance of them in all the stores, which makes them cheap and affordable.

I had quite an anxiety fuelled evening yesterday. It left me feeling depleted and upset. After having a good day I went to a yoga class and lasted all of 3 minutes in the room. The class hadn’t even begun when read more

Balsamic Tomato Soup with Butter Beans & Kale

I really used to dislike tomato soup. All the way through my childhood/teenage years, right up until I was 21 and my new boyfriend was making dinner for me. He’d cooked dinner for me a couple of times before (he made falafel for me on our first date and it was insanely good) and the first time we met he was working in the kitchen at the cafe my friends and I popped into everyday post class for a cuppa and a chat.

Warm Tamari & Lime Potato Bowl with a Tangy Tahini Drizzle

My love for salads is eternal and it upsets me that they’ve endured quite a bad reputation. Limp, lifeless, bland. So sad. Salads should be vibrant, colourful, flavourful and awesome.

So far on my ‘to grow’ list read more

Golden Quinoa Falafel

It’s definitely starting to feel more like spring. Little flowers are breaking through and the weather feels a bit brighter. I can’t believe we’re already well into March. This year is speeding by so far. Which is a nice reminder for me to slow down a little every now and then to be fully present and take in everything around me. There’s nothing I hate more than going through the motions on auto-pilot, ignoring life passing by. Be present.

I love spring. The fresh, read more

Spiced Red Lentil Bowl

For the last few days I have been craving comfort. Comfort in all forms. Hot tea, blankets, restful sleep, a good book, lots of cuddles, candles etc. When I recognise I’m in a low place I try my best to look to the simple, little things I know will bring me some comfort and ease the heavy feeling. Today it was a bowl of nourishing, bright food I craved. Something warming, slightly spiced and super easy. This lentil bowl ticked all my boxes and made for a soothing lunch.

It contains two read more
