Banana Protein Breakfast Bowls

Oh look, another breakfast recipe! These peanut butter + banana protein breakfast bowls are a totally different type of breakfast to my last one (Chorizo Scrambled Eggs) so I reckon it’s allowed. When it comes to breakfast food I don’t discriminate. Sweet, savoury, sweet and savoury – I’ll take them all!

I’ve always been a breakfast lover. I swear I can’t function until I’ve got a belly full of some good food! As much as I love a huge plate of pancakes or waffles, a protein packed breakfast like this always sets me up best for the day. Depending on the specific ingredients you use, each bowl has around 20g of protein plus a load of healthy fats. Perfect to perk you up and keep you going all morning!

These protein breakfast bowls start with one of my favourite all-round ingredients – greek yoghurt. I much prefer proper greek yoghurt (such as Fage Total or Chobani) over ‘greek-style’ yoghurt which tends to have less protein and more sugar, but use whatever you prefer. The yoghurt is then topped with peanut butter and honey (a dream combo!). Feel free to up the amount of honey a little if you’ve got a super sweet tooth – I won’t tell ;) The whole lot is finished off with sliced banana and flaked almonds for a bit of crunch. Yum yum yum.

Blue Cheese Walnut Salad

Happy Friday everyone! I’m currently en route to London for a weekend involving Taylor Swift and plenty of Prosecco so, needless to say, I’m in a pretty good mood! Today’s post is a little collaboration with Florette, who I’m sure you’ve all heard of. They offer a range of salads and have recently started selling smaller, single serve bags which is great if you’re the type Read Post

Homemade Naan Bread

For approximately the past 2 years I’ve been vocalising my intention to attempt homemade naan bread, and every time I’ve decided it sounds hard and dismissed the idea. Well, after yet another mediocre shop bought naan I finally decided enough was enough. Beautifully soft, chewy freshly made naan bread is no longer reserved for takeaways and restaurants, my friends! I’m going to go ahead and assume Read Post

Chorizo Scrambled Eggs

Let’s talk about eggs. Eggs are one of my favourite foods – they’re versatile, tasty and packed full of healthy stuff. And these chorizo scrambled eggs tossed with crispy, crushed tortilla chips are my current favourite incarnation. You might have guessed by now that I’m aaall about breakfast foods. Gimme pancakes for breakfast, eggs for lunch and waffles for dinner. Breakfast food is best eaten any Read Post

Rhubarb Elderflower Gin Cooler

Happy World Gin Day! For once I’ve actually been organised enough to get a relevant post together for it. Although, admittedly, I did spend most of the car journey to Skye yesterday editing photos so perhaps not all that prepared! On that note, as this post goes live I’ll be preparing to run the Skye Half Marathon so there’ll be a fairly large gin on the cards Read Post

Eating & Drinking :: Liverpool

salthouse bacaro liverpool

Last Friday Ricky and I hopped on the train to spend a couple of nights in one of Travelodge’s Liverpool hotels. Our plan for the weekend was nothing more than to eat some good food, grab a few drinks and chill out after a hectic few weeks. As you can probably tell from the photos, we did pretty well on the food front! We arrived in Read Post

Rhubarb Almond Sponge Cake

If you follow me on instagram, you might have seen me posting about this rhubarb that I managed to grab from my grandparents garden last weekend. My papa grows all sorts of fruit + veg and it’s amazing to be able to enjoy seasonal produce fresh out the ground! Since this was an unplanned addition to my fridge, I didn’t have any particular recipe planned. Read Post

Spicy Kale Salad with Chicken + Garlic Croutons

Remember when I mentioned that I wanted to get excited about kale? I wasn’t even kidding! I promise I’m not about to turn into some kind of hipster health food blogger. I did just put gin in ice lollies and encourage triple chocolate cookie consumption, after all. But, I am currently experiencing unprecedented levels of excitement about leafy greens so that should tell you something. Let’s start Read Post

Gin + Tonic Ice Lollies

We’ve been lucky to have some pretty nice weather this long weekend. Sadly, we don’t have a garden to enjoy it in but that didn’t stop me getting some ice lollies on the go. Gin & tonic ice lollies, to be precise. Because if you can’t drink in the sun, you might as well eat alcoholic ice lollies inside. Or something… A classic G&T is Read Post

Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus + Poached Egg

I mentioned how excited I am about asparagus season a couple of posts ago whilst raving about this chopped chicken bacon salad. Well, asparagus season’s still here and I’m still excited! Mainly because I feel like I’ve discovered a food combination that was just meant to be in this prosciutto wrapped asparagus. FYI, food is about the only thing I’ll ever talk about being meant Read Post
