Over the past month or so I have took a step back and listened to my body in what it likes and don’t like. sometimes we eat food that we know we shouldn’t time an time again, then deal with the CONSEQUENCES later. for example i love oat porridge but every time I ate it i would get hunger pains after, I ignored these signs and still ate it. now i have officially stopped eating oats and i have been on the look out for its replacement, as I do really miss it. Skipping ahead to last week a fellow foodie posted a green banana porridge, i immediately got excited and ran out to buy some green bananas to get creating. let’s just say I am in love, i won’t be making it everyday but it will definitely be a breakfast staple of mine. I love that it is just a few ingredients and the fact that BANANAS are the main ingredient is awesome. i wanted to share This recipe with y’all, because I feel it is such a delicious breakfast option and so easy to make. so here it goes…..
when you’re an adult turned vegan any chocolate bars that may of been your favourite back in the day are now off the table. I had a few faves like snickers, twirl, flake, time out, boost and bounty to name a few. I know there are some vegan versions on the market currently, but being that I can’t just pick them up in regular supermarkets, they are a tad pricey and still contain a lot of ingredients that aren’t beneficial, i much prefer to create my own. As you know I am a big fan of creating things myself they are so much more satisfying and you know exactly what it contains. Lately I have been craving a “snickers” caramel, peanuts and chocolate is just the perfect match, so naturally I jumped into the kitchen to satisfy those taste buds. So lets show you how you can get a piece of this nutty action.
So I will admit I haven’t been feeling 100% since I got back from my vacay in January, coming back from paradise to cold england doesn’t do wonders for the body. For those of you who live in England or a country with a cold climate will know how rubbish the winters are, dark, rainy, cold and dreary. So we need all the help we can to perk us up, so until the sun arrives I thought I would help you out with a little boost. some liquid sunshine Every morning which I have been taking shots of, this powerful mix contains such amazing ingredients.
First up we have the amazing ginger which can help with many things such as nausea, menstrual pain, muscle soreness, flu and it has anti-inflammatory properties the list goes on. Another bad boy is Lemon these balls of yellow are great for the skin, a good source of vitamin C and minerals, help with digestion and weight loss. Lets not forgot the all mighty Turmeric it has a natural anti-inflammatory compound in it called curcumin, helps to repair damage in the body and helps to fight against many diseases. Lastly we have black pepper which helps with weight loss, skin, coughs, cold and helps nutrients become more available to our system. The black pepper is added just before you take a shot of this wonderful mix to help with the absorption of the turmeric benefits. So let’s show you how to whip up this powerful tonic!!!
so i know y’all have been oh so patiently waiting for this recipe and as promised I have a little gift for you. this dish is a traditional jamaican dish one that mum would cook occasionally, would be served at parties and on the menu at every caribbean food shop. i would typically not be interested in this dish when I was younger and I would always ask for something else. also I have never cooked this dish in my life, but hey I make magic with food so I was confident i could pass with flying colours. i have been a little more experimental with meat replacements this year because it mixes things up a little, I like to create with food so why not. so one day i stumbled across this interesting item in the mock section at my local wing yip (chinese supermarket). The texture is crazy its mostly made up of mushrooms and soya bean protein. i couldn’t believe how realistic the texture is stringy and chewy just like the real stuff. now some people may question why do you want to eat something that is imitating meat when you don’t eat meat. well my answer to that is I used to enjoy meat more so chicken if i’m honest, but i didn’t enjoy the way it made me feel. the purpose of replacements is so that you can get that satisfaction but with no harm to animals or your health simples. anyway that is enough rambling lets get in kitchen and start cooking!!!
So tis almost that time where we give gifts, hang with the fam and stuff our faces silly. Well I’m sure y’all know by now I’m down for anything where good food is involved, so I got a little something for you. Now Ive been making brownies for a hot minute played around with the recipe and done a few variations on flavour but these were hands down the best. These are perfect for Christmas time with the family, Chocolatey moist brownies paired with gooey caramel and chewy marshmallows food heaven at its finest. I used to love me a flump back in the days, so being able to get my hands on vegan marshmallows well I just had to throw it down in the kitchen with them. Right let’s get brownie creating but don’t eat them all save some for Christmas morning at least.
