    • Happy Friday everyone! 😘 National Vegetarian Week is drawing to a close, so to celebrate I thought I’d make a delicious, meat-free pizza with my friends at @solgar_1947! πŸ˜‹ This vegan pizza is made with a wholegrain spelt crust and is topped with homemade pesto, then layered with mushrooms, Jerusalem artichokes and rocket. All in all, about as healthy and as nourishing as pizza can get! πŸ™ŒπŸ»πŸ™ŒπŸ»πŸ˜‹ It is also the perfect creation to serve up alongside one of my favourite supplements of Solgar’s. The Omnium supplement is a complete multivitamin and mineral complex and is rich in both antioxidants and phytonutrients. It’s perfect for anyone who lives a stressful, urban life (that’s me!), thanks to its antioxidant profile which helps to render free radicals harmless. πŸ’• Happily, it’s also vegan-friendly and is packed with nutrients to support a veggie or vegan diet - think energy releasing B-vitamins, which only naturally occur from meat.

Anyway, this pizza is a great Friday night alternative - and I hope you love it as much as we did! You can find the link in my profile! 😘 #pizza #veganpizza #pizzaπŸ• #vegandinner #nationalvegetarianweek #veganuk #healthypizza #eatyourgreens #vegetarianrecipes #veganfoodporn #healthyfoodporn #veganrecipes  #beautifulcuisines #bestofvegan #letscookvegan #feedfeed #feedfeedvegan #bbg #sweatwithkayla #plantpowered #plantbased #instafood #foodblogger #befitfoods #foodstyling #foodfluffer #veganfoodshare #thatsdarling #f52grams #eattherainbow
    • Hands up all my fellow chocolate lovers πŸ™‹πŸΌβ€β™€οΈπŸ™‹πŸΌβ€β™€οΈπŸ™‹πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ Who wants a slice of brownie?! There’s a new recipe on the blog for these gorgeous, fudgy Black Bean Brownies. They are rich, indulgent and oh-so-decadent and I promise that you won’t taste the beans at all! My kids devoured these without even knowing - and I love them so much that I made them three times in one week. 🀫🀫 They are also flourless (save for a touch of @coconutmerchant coconut flour) and topped with an avocado ganache - my fave choc to make them with right now is @benefitchocolate 😍. So...that’s brownies with two of your five a day. What more of a reason do you need to make them?! 😍😍 Recipe link in my bio.

    • Happy Friday lovely friends! πŸ’–πŸ’– How are you all doing? I am fresh off my retreat, and feeling SO good, inspired and motivated! I met the most incredible women, heard amazing stories, learned a LOT and left feeling uplifted. The power of women coming together, right?! 😍 Thank you to @karen.newby.nutrition for organising such a fantastic retreat at @tilton_house. If you’re looking to go on one yourself, I couldn’t recommend her highly enough! 
Anyway, today I am still trying to maintain that sense of calm, so I’ll be treating myself to tea and a slice of this no-bake Carrot Cake, topped with cashew cream β€œcheese” frosting. Who’d like the recipe?! πŸ’–πŸ‘‡πŸ»

    • Who else over-indulged a little over the Easter weekend? πŸ™‹πŸΌβ€β™€οΈπŸ™‹πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ I am not ashamed to admit that I ate ALL the chocolate, so I’ve been eating healthier, more nourishing options the last few days. πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹ These delicious Miso Roasted Aubergines With Turmeric Dressing are one of my absolute favourite lunches - deceptively easy to prepare, full of flavour, and SO good for you! πŸ’›πŸ’›πŸ’› The dressing was made in collaboration with my favourite @solgar_1947 Turmeric Root Capsules, which also happen to be one of favourite supplements around. They have been used for centuries in Ayurvedic traditions - and perfect for anyone else who suffers with occasional aching joints like me! πŸ™ˆ Anyway, if you’d like the recipe for this delicious dish, the link is now in my bio.

    • #ad Happy Tuesday lovely people! 😘😘 How is your day going? With the Easter holidays still here for us, mine has passed by in a blur, so I’m about to dig into to a fast, healthy, delicious meal - Fifteen Minute Flatbread Pizzas, topped with @violife_foods amazing Original Flavour vegan cheese slices 😍😍 I just whipped up the flatbreads (five minutes - no need for rising. Hurrah!), then topped with tomato and pepper marinara, cheese slices and baked. I then scattered over some roasted tomatoes, rocket, avocado and chilli flakes. I’ll blog a recipe this week if you like? SO good and so simple - that β€œcheese” melts like a dream. πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹ Every last bit as good as normal cheese. Plus, not only is it vegan, but it is also suitable for people who suffer from food allergies, since Violife is 100% allergens free! Go buy it for yourself and give it a go πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹ #dairyfree #freefrom #easyrecipes #veganpizza #pizza #flatbread #vegandinner #foodpic #foodstyling #plantpowered #heresmyfood #veganrecipes #eattherainbow #feedfeedvegan #vegansofig #plantbased #happyfood #foods4thought #bestofvegan #veganfoodshare #thatsdarling #instafood #foodblogger #befitfoods #f52grams #feedfeed #onthetable #bbg #sweatwithkayla
