Don’t hold back on milk (I love coconut milk), coconut yoghurt, bananas and goji berries!! 😋 It’s super easy to make and it’s delicious 🤤. 3 tbsp of coconut oil
3 tbsp of raw cacao powder (organic or Dutch premium)
3 tbs of raw honey or maple syrup for vegans
3-4 cusp fo brown rice whole grain rice puffs.
1.) Pre-heat your oven to 110C
2. To a small pot add your coconut oil, cacao powder and honey/maple and heat very gently, just until the coconut oil has melted. Remove from the heat and stir well.
3. Add the puffed brown rice to a large mixing bowl, pour over the cacao mixture and stir gently until all the rice is well coated.
4. Transfer the chocolatey rice to shallow baking trays and bake for 15 minutes (divide to 5 minutes interval) -stir gently with a wooden spoon every 5 minutes, so that the rice doesn’t stick together, and leave to cool before transferring to a large glass jar for storage.

Guys, flank steak is one of my all-time fave cuts of meat. It feeds a lot of people for not a lot of money, and as long as you properly marinate it it’s amazingly tender and flavorful since it has a good amount of fat. My go-to marinade includes (not always all, but always some) of the following:
- soy sauce
- Worcestershire sauce - lime juice - coffee (brewed)
- Apple cider or balsamic vinegar
- Dijon mustard - ginger - spices including garlic, onion, turmeric, curry, cumin, chili powder, ground coriander, cinnamon
Pick a flavor profile and then choose some acidic liquids, and then spices that go with them! .
Usually these steaks are inconsistent when it comes to thickness so decide whether you’re ok having different doneness. If not, consider cutting it in half and cooking the halves for different amounts of time. 7-8 minutes per side will produce a medium to medium-rare steak if left whole. .
Chimichurri is really just chopped herbs, red wine vinegar, oil, chili flakes and salt! It’s so flavorful for meat or fish - try it! I only had cilantro but traditionally it’s heavy on the parsley and oregano too. .

So I have one rule when it comes to polenta, there must be #butter
and lots of it 😜
Tonight I played around with my food and came up with this delicious concoction 🤓
Cheesy Polenta Stuffted Bell Pepper Sandwich 😳 w/ Sunflower Power #veganpesto
+ a #sundriedtomato
marinara 🤤👌🏻 Sandwiched between 2 toasted @alvaradostreetbakery
Onion Poppyseed bagels!
To make the polenta I did the following
• bring 2c of water + 1tbsp of butter to a boil. Next add #pinksalt
and 3/4c polenta! Whisk the polenta on med high until it comes together 👍🏻
• turn the heat to low and add 1tbsp of butter. Mix with a wooden spoon until the butter is fully incorporated!
• let sit for 5 mins then add another 1tbsp of butter. Mix until fully incorporated!
• let sit another 5 mins, add another tbsp of butter, and mix until incorporated.
• after letting it cook for about 10mins, stirring every so often, pour in 1/2c of room temp heavy cream. Mix until creamy smooth!
• finally you’ll add in 3/4c shredded Gruyere, and stir until it fully melted
• set aside but keep warm!
To make the stuffed peppers I sliced thick rounds of green & red bell peppers and placed them into a baking dish with sun-dried tomato marinara on the bottom! I then scooped the polenta into the centers of the peppers until completely filled! Cover with aluminum foil and bake at 400 for about 30-40mins 👌🏻
Ps. My kiddo loved the polenta + marinara but didn’t want much to do with the pepper 🤷🏻♀️ though she did take a bite so that’s always a success in my book 👊🏻
Hope your Saturday has been fun and free my friends 🇺🇸
Have a lovely evening ✌🏻

quick & easy dinner tonight, some @traderjoes
penne, shrimp, and spinach. So easy! When the pasta was halfway cooked, sautéed the shrimp w/ some olive oil, salt, pepper, minced garlic, chili powder, and oregano. Set them aside for a minute to sauté some spinach in the same pan. Add it all in w/ the cooked pasta w/ a little more olive oil and salt and pepper and walllllaaaah! 💃🏻 Jareds pasta was paired w/ my mamas homemade meatballs and sauce ... equally as delicious (prob more delicious 🙈)
Hare Krishna feeds are the BEST! Absolutely delicious and super economical! There’s not many restaurants that you can feed a family of four with nutritious food for under $30 these days!

Alright everyone! You all voted “yes” for my “Skinny Cookies” recipe so here you go:
1/2 cup crunchy peanut butter
1 cup oats
2 tbsp Life’s Good chocolate chips
2 tbsp crushed walnuts
Pinch of Himalayan salt
Pinch of stevia
In a large bowl mash both bananas with a fork until you have reached a creamy and slightly chunky texture. Add peanut butter to banana mixture and stir generously. Once stirred add in oats, chocolate chips, walnuts, salt and stevia. Mix all of the ingredients together with a spoon or spatula. Take out a cookie sheet with parchment paper and spoon out mixture onto sheet into cookies. Take a fork and press into each cookie twice. Put cookies in the oven at 375 degrees for 12-14 minutes. After cookies are baked let them sit out for 5-10 minutes to cool off. Enjoy!
FOOD INTENTION: (Say food intention before consuming cookies.) I intend for these cookies to help me achieve my sexiest self yet. I feel my body tighten, firm, tone and lift in every way possible when I consume these skinny cookies! ——-> For those of you with nut allergies opt out peanut butter for a nut free butter. Enjoy!

A few years back, I tried Brussel Sprouts w. scotch bonnet vinegar & cauliflower cheese sauce at Rasa Bar, downtown Toronto, and I have not stopped talking about them since. Truthfully I wasn’t going to order them as I’m generally not a fan of brussel sprouts, but the waitress HIGHLY highly highly suggested that I order them - I am so thankful she was my waitress that night. I haven’t attempted to make that dish yet (but I will soon!) however, that dish made me realize that if you season brussel sprouts well, they can be absolutely delicious!
I now make Roasted Brussels Sprouts w. Bacon🥓 and it has become a weekend favourite in this house!
1 cup brussel sprouts
5 strips of bacon
1 garlic clove
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp onion powder
1 tbsp butter
Salt & pepper to taste - top with chili flakes!
1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
2. Cook bacon in a large frying pan on the stove.
3. Remove from heat and set bacon aside on a flat plate with paper towel.
4. Remove the bacon grease (but keep about 1 tablespoon worth still in the pan!)
5. Wash, cut and clean each brussel sprout.
6. Add the butter to the pan (mixed into the bacon grease), let the butter melt.
7. Add the minced garlic - Let cook for 1 minute. Add the brussel sprouts, paprika, onion, salt, pepper and chili flakes. Let the sprouts brown.
8. Chop the bacon into small bits and add them to the pan. Cook for 5 minutes.
9. Remove the mixture from the heat and place in a small oven pan. Bake for 15 minutes.
10. ENJOY! 🤗

I could barely keep my hands off of these fiesta lettuce wrap tacos long enough to take a picture! They were just that good!😋 Thanks to a super cool package I received from @peteslivinggreens
, my Friday night was definitely fabulous once I whipped up this healthy and flavorful dinner! 💚🌱🥑 To make the taco fillings, I simply boiled one can of black beans until they thickened with 2 cloves of minced garlic, sea salt, cumin, and chili powder. While this was reducing, I also cooked 1/2 a cup of quinoa according to its package directions. Finally while these two fillings were finishing up, I sautéed 1/2 a red bell pepper and 1/2 a red onion (both sliced thinly) in avocado oil + sea salt, cubed 1 avocado, sliced 1 tomato, and rinsed 12 red butter lettuce leaves from my @peteslivinggreens
red butter lettuce head. Once the quinoa and beans were done, I assembled a scoop of each filling on top of two butter lettuce leaves for a total of 6 fiesta lettuce wrap tacos (this recipe serves 2 people)🤗 I hope you guys love his recipe as much as I do! Let me know in the comments below what you had for Friday night dinner!👇🏻
We count down to fig season all year long, and this fruit is still wonderful to enjoy! Figs are delicious during any meal, and this breakfast recipe is one we can’t wait to try. @bonappetitmag
suggests mixing figs, honey, and pine nuts together with yogurt, and the combination sounds like the perfect balance of sweet and savory, don’t you think? What is your favorite fig recipe? 🍽🍽🍽
So, after the constant jokes from my work mates about my cooking skills (or lack thereof) I decided that I really should start trying to teach myself a thing or two!
Today I brought my first ever cookbook. Though, Together is more than just a journal of recipes. It is a triumph over adversity, a demonstration of the strength of the survivors of the Grenfell Towers fire. Best of all, 100% of the profits from the sale of the book go into funding a community kitchen for the use of the Grenfell survivors! #moneywellspent #cooktogether #togethercookbook #grenfelltower #recipeshare #meghanmarkle #duchessofsussex #duchessmeghan

Saturday: 🥟🥟Prawn Gyozas!!! 🥟🥟 I have to say I’ve never cooked gyozas before & I was slightly worried about how they would turn out but I’m pretty chuffed with these! 🤗🤗
Thank you to the lovely @maegabriel
who is not only my brother’s girlfriend but an incredible cook with a pretty awesome Instagram account too!...go check her out! She cooks the most delicious food..
Now she hasn’t actually got round to writing this recipe up on her website yet so she has very kindly let me share this recipe with you here! Thanks Mae! 😘
This recipe uses pre made wrappers so actually super simple to make but so full of flavour!...I wasn’t actually intending on making my own dough but I stupidly ordered the wrong thing when ordering online! 🤦🏻♀️ (see stories for what I ordered instead!) ~
Anyway here it is...my kids LOVED these so a hit all round tonight! ~
6 large raw tiger prawns
2 tbsp Teriyaki sauce
1 tbsp oyster sauce
1 stalk thin spring onions (finely sliced)
1 tsp finely grated ginger
Salt & pepper
1 tsp sesame oil
Gyoza wrappers (12-14)
2 tbsp oil
1/2 cup water
If the Gyoza are frozen, thaw for up to 2 hours.
Finely chop the raw tiger prawns, place in a bowl, add the sliced spring onions, ginger & the rest of ingredients salt & pepper to taste. Mix thoroughly.
Heat a frying pan with 1 tbsp oil. Fry a little of the prawn mixture until cooked, taste to check for seasoning. Adjust as necessary. Do this until you get the flavours just right.
When ready to wrap, place a heaped tsp of prawn mix in the middle of the Gyoza wrapper, fold in half and pinch the sides to close, forming a half moon. Do this until you have finished the rest of the prawns mix.
Reheat the pan with oil on medium heat. Add the Gyoza to the pan. It should sizzle. Cook one side until it’s golden brown. Then add 1/2 cup of water to the pan & cover to let the steam cook the Gyoza. Cook covered until all the water evaporated. The residual oil will crisp up the sides once more. Take off the heat & serve immediately.
2 tbsp light soy sauce
1/2 fresh lemon juice
Honestly so good!!! Xx
