Warm Kale & Brussel Sprout Salad topped with Crispy Chickpeas & a Nutty Sprinkle

In our home lunch is almost always one of two options; a bowl of leftovers or a salad. Both super easy, quickly throw it together meals. In the warmer months I tend to gravitate more towards a fresh, crunchy, fruit studded affair but we’re still in the midst of winter (and the end of January?!) so something warmer is needed because I’m not completely sure if it’s colder outside or inside our home!

One of the things I seriously love about winter (there’s a long list

Soft Almond ‘Cheese’

You know that sad, lost feeling you get after finishing a really, really great book? I was wrestling with that all last week.

Apple & Ginger Juice (with lots of greens!)

Happy Monday! I thought a tasty green juice would be a good idea to kickstart another cold January week. Trying to instil all the calm, productive vibes around here just now and this juice is a winner (as is Laura Marling’s new music. YES GIRL).

Sipping on this juice feels so nourishing and refreshing. Heavy on the nutrients as well as good vibes. Have this when you’re feeling a bit sluggish or make it into a fab breakfast by blending up a frozen banana or half a frozen avocado
