Capricciosa Cauliflower Bake

Capricciosa Cauliflower Bake

My absolute favourite pizza topping is ‘Capricciosa’, usually ham, olives, mushrooms, artichokes and tomato. I’d been wanting to try this using the Fathead Pizza base, but because I forgot to defrost any, decided instead to make it into a baked dish, bulked out with cauliflower […]

Cabbage Soup

Cabbage Soup

I very nearly didn’t post this, because who’s interested in cabbage soup?! Then I changed my mind, because it really is lovely – a proper winter warmer and fantastic if you’re not feeling too well. I make mine with a little pre-made carrot and swede […]

Keto Week 12 – Review

Keto Week 12 – Review

Still feeling the after effects from my cold so still not on peak form this week and food was generally a lot of meals that are quick to prepare, or that I had kept frozen portions of in the freezer. Whilst I was roughly tracking […]

Chinese Minced Pork & Prawn Salad

Chinese Minced Pork & Prawn Salad

I’m currently working on some variations to my favourite Taco Beef salad, to help mix up lunchtimes a little! This is a really yummy take on ‘Yuk Sung’, using Chinese 5 Spice powder and sweetener to approximate the flavour of hoisin sauce. Water Chestnuts and […]

Cheesy Roast Broccoli Pasta

Cheesy Roast Broccoli Pasta

This is a great, quick meal that requires pretty standard fridge ingredients and works well if you’ve used up a lot of your protein allowance for the day! There’s loads of variations that can be made as well – add fried bacon or prawns, use […]

Kedgeree

Kedgeree

This is one I’d been meaning to try for  awhile but kept forgetting to buy smoked haddock… In any case, it was worth the wait. Really simple and I didn’t miss the rice at all. Caulirice was a fine substitute and I added green beans […]

Lemon Shortbread Biscuits

Lemon Shortbread Biscuits

Not going to lie, these are horribly addictive but fortunately sweet enough that I can only really manage a couple at a time! They have the dry, crumbly texture of shortbread and the lemon brings a beautiful tartness. Seriously good with an afternoon cuppa and […]

Chicken & Egg Drop Broth

Chicken & Egg Drop Broth

Last week I caught the cold from Hell (is that a contradiction in terms?), so in my attempt to feed my body ALL the good things that might help it fight the bugs quicker, I made up this superfood chicken and egg broth. Jam-packed with […]

Keto Week 11 – Review

Keto Week 11 – Review

Definitely not my best week as on Monday I came down with the mother of all colds with a fever that pretty much laid me out until Friday. Food was often a mishmash of what was in the fridge, or Chinese takeaway, and although I […]

Keto Week 10 – Review

Keto Week 10 – Review

Not going to lie – I’m a fair weather runner so I’ve not been out this week… Have also been late home from work a lot, so meals tended towards the quick and easy side of things.  I had liver and bacon a couple of […]
