As temperatures continue to drop you may be having a harder time sticking to your healthy lifestyle. The solution may just be as simple as a delicious, boosting meal full of vitamins, colours, and asian-inspired flavours accompanied with a huge side of daylight. Your best bet? Jusu Brothers in Notting Hill! With dishes ranging from vegan sushi to chicken sandwiches and juices in every colour of the rainbow, you won’t be disappointed.
It’s the weekend! What better to treat yourself with than with a delicious stack of vegan banana pancakes? I have tried a million different variations, but this one by The Pretty Bee is definitely my favourite!
Adding fruit to your salads- you either love it or hate it. You might have noticed I tend to add the craziest ingredients to my salads; from toppings to fruit. This recipe serves as the perfect light lunch. With a side of sweet potato or warming grains you will be good to go!
Sometimes all you need to get off to an amazing start of your day is a super green smoothie bowl bursting with vitamins! After your meditation session that is 🙂 If you’ve had a long night out or ate too much in the evening, treat yourself to this easily-digestible bowl of blended goodness. This is not to say you shouldn’t have this every day!
There’s no reason you should just have smoothies as breakfast or as a snack! Smoothies- if made ‘responsibly’- are a great way of packing TONS of essential vitamins and minerals into one meal. Many of us, myself included, tend to prefer sweeter smoothies. The bad news being that usually this also means we’re taking in a LOT of sugar without even realising it.
In case you hadn’t noticed, one of my favourite things to do is transform classic dishes into super easy vegan versions! Of course, I’m not trying to kid you and tell you this tofu scramble will taste exactly the same as the milky, gooey scramble you’re used to. However, it is a great alternative- a bit of variation never hurts. Pssst, it’s also a great of getting in some more protein.
My favourite comfort dessert will almost always involve cinnamon, one way or another. From traditional Belgian Speculoos to a deliciously warm apple crumble- I can’t get enough! So without further ado, here is my (slightly) healthier version of the traditional apple and pear crumble.

Everytime I get back to London I find myself having to whip up a meal using anything I can find in my pantry and freezer. I usually don’t end up with anything too exciting, but this time I made a super easy, wholesome, and delicious plate of pasta requiring very few ingredients! Give it a try and let me know how it goes 🙂
Here’s a golden tip: whenever you make the perfect smoothie (not easy!), write down exactly what is in it. It’s what I did for this one, making it ready for you to try out! The large portion makes for a filling breakfast, alternatively, you could have half of it as a snack.
