Mother's Day Breakfast Inspiration

So, as I am sure everyone is fully aware by now... It's Mother's Day tomorrow (Sunday 26th March 2017) and what better way to show your love to Mum by serving her a delicious breakfast in bed to start her day off perfectly. I have included not 1 but 2 delicious recipe ideas to inspire you on what to serve; whether she likes a sweet or savory breakfast.

Crepes With Pear & Coconut*

*What you'll need:
-100g gluten free plain flour
-2 large eggs
-300ml coconut milk
-Coconut oil
-2 small pears
-1/2tsp ground cinnamon
-1tbsp agave nectar
-Coconut yoghurt
-HeyBoo Coconut Caramel
-Sunflower seeds

How to make:

> Simply combine the flour, eggs, milk and a pinch of salt in a large bowl and mix thoroughly until combined into a smooth batter. Heat a large frying pan and add a tsp of coconut oil and allow to melt before adding a dollop of the batter mix - cook on each side for about a minute until golden a crispy.
> For the filling - peel and cut the pears and place in a pan to sautee with the agave nectar and cinnamon until soft.
> Serve up by filling the pancakes with a dollop of coconut yoghurt, the sauteed pear, sunflower seeds then drizzle all over with some coconut caramel (alternatively, make some plain caramel sauce).

Baked Eggs, Ham & Kale**

**What you'll need (serves 1):
-1 large egg
-A handful of curly kale
-1/2 punnet of mushrooms
-A handful of cherry tomatoes
-1/2 tsp ground turmeric powder
-1/2 tsp chia seeds
-Sprinkling of sunflower & pumpkin seeds
-2 slices of parma ham

How to make:

Start by slicing up the mushrooms and cherry tomatoes and placing into a small frying pan with a little oil, once both have softened add in the kale leaving a space in the centre of the pan to crack the egg into. Sprinkle over the ground turmeric then cover with a pan lid for around a minute (or 2) this will allow the egg to poach and the kale to steam and soften. Remove the lid, add the parma ham and sprinkle with seeds to finish. Serve up as it is or add some fresh slices of bread (gluten free) to dip into the egg.

I hope this has given you some inspiration and make sure you spoil Mum tomorrow - it is her day after all!

Love as always,

Well & Truly Gluten Free Snacks

Having already tried and tested previous Well & Truly products (previous post here about their Gazpacho) I was intrigued to see what their gluten free crisps were like. So, here's the verdict:


Pea & Spinach Fritters

I love breakfast and that's no secret really... So, when it comes to the weekends I see it as a real opportunity to cook up something different and tasty. Unless you are fortunate enough to work from home or have a canteen at work, it's tricky to not get stuck into a bit of routine of having something quick and easy - my go to option is usually some dairy free yoghurt with fruit and granola, but that can get fairly boring to say the least. You can even make these the night before to take into work with you... so here's the recipe:

Octochocolate - RAW Chocolate

Octochocolate reached out to me recently to see if I wanted to try out some of their products... Which for me was a no brainer*. For anyone who knows me well, knows that I am a massive chocolate lover and admittedly have quite a sweet tooth. One of the first things I noticed when I came across Octochocolate was how unbelievably beautiful all the products were. The packaging is also extremely beautiful, you know you could feel confident to give any one of Octochocolate products to a friend or loved one as a gift (Hint: Mother's Day & Easter are coming up soon - thank me later). The second thing that makes these chocolate bars so special, is the fact that they are all raw and are vegan friendly too! Bonus! - I'm not sure about you but I totally interpreted that to mean that these chocolates are good for you?... Okay, so maybe not one of your 5 a day, but they are a heck of a lot better for you than some other chocolates out there.

Now, let's get into the real detail... The taste test!

We Are Tea

There is nothing better than a nice hot cup of tea so when We Are Tea contacted me to see if I wanted to try out their products, it wasn't a tough choice*.
