Eggvocado Recipe

Eggvocado you might ask?! Well, eggvocado is something I’ve seen floating around the internet and have been keen to try for myself.  Turns out, it makes for a delicious, healthy and different breakfast or brunch dish. Eggvocado is pretty much what it sounds like; an egg + avocado but the basics of it is that you bake the egg inside a slightly hollowed out avocado. Clever huh? So, I made this little treat of a breakfast for Father’s Day the other weekend and it sure was a hit!

Comparison Is The Thief Of Joy

“Single people want relationships, settled people wonder if they’re missing out on something, travelling types miss stability, stable ones are restless, old friends want new friends, new friends miss old friends, and basically everyone my age has some dangling worry trailing around after them that they’re somehow not doing everything, that what they’re doing is not altogether the right thing, that they are missing out….Do not be ashamed. The doubt is natural, and everone you know – yes even that person – carries it sometimes too. Allow yourself to be peaceful. Allow yourself satisfaction in what you have. And if you really don’t like it, allow yourself permission to make changes.”

My new specs!

Hello all. As you know I have recently changed jobs, and one of the benefits of my new job is that I get to wear some pretty awesome specs! I actually do need glasses to be able to see properly (long distance) but I used to be quite lazy in wearing them and instead I just squinted a lot or couldn’t see properly. Why? Well mainly because I just didn’t really like my old glasses. But, now that I work for Bailey Nelson London I am surrounded by cool glasses all the time and I have already got myself 3 new pairs (woops)!

Zesty Bulgur Wheat Tabbouleh Salad with Roasted Chickpeas

Summer is upon us. Well kind of anyway, as I still live in London ;) However this means BBQ season has kicked off. I often get asked to bring a salad or dish to a BBQ and this Zesty Bulgur Wheat Tabbouleh Salad has been a go-to for me for years!

It’s refreshing, healthy and goes perfectly with any type of grilled meats or fish. It’s super simple and quick to put together, the longest part being the chopping of the ingredients. I added some extra crunch to the recipe this time by sprinkling over my favourite roasted chickpeas. It’s so yummy and love how colourful and fresh this salad looks. Click below for the full recipe and instructions.

I want 2

I want..

It’s that time of the week again. I came across this quote on instagram last night and I just fell in love with it; it just perfectly describes how I feel about love. I have been single for quite some time now and, trust me, I am really happy on my own but obviously I wouldn’t mind meeting someone special at some point to be part of my life. Dating in London is so complicated and I am really over it some days. People seem to have so many ‘wants’ and requirements for the people they date. For me, it’s about the simple things. This is all I want…

Wild Food Cafe in Neal’s Yard, Covent Garden

Healthy food lovers; listen up! I recently discovered a gem of a health foodie spot that you need to visit. The Wild Food Cafe is tucked away in the colourful courtyard that is Neal’s Yard. I love that place, it’s such a hidden little treat in buzzing Sevendials. For a not so healthy spot there go to Homeslice (review here), it’s pretty bombdiggity! Anyway, back to the Wild Food Cafe. Now this is a raw-centric, vegan and vegetarian hot spot using local and fresh organic ingredients.

Getting Beach Ready with Bootcamp Pilates

The last month for me has been about getting healthy! Summer is not far away now so I thought I better kick myself into shape so I feel healthy and good. After indulging a bit too much this winter I definitely was feeling a little bit more ‘padded’ than usual… So time to fix it & embrace the 80/20 diet again by healthy eating, limiting alcohol to weekends only and getting myself into a fitness routine!

I have always liked doing the occasional reformer pilates classes to tone up so when one of my friends mentioned she does the Bootcamp Pilates Beach Body package every year, I thought I’d join her to get my bikini ready. The package includes 16 classes to use in six weeks which means you have to do about 3 classes a week to ensure you get the best results.
