Ginger Christmas Bundt Cake from Ella Rose Cakes

This Christmas it felt only right to invite back once again the baker I know best in my life to bring us a festive recipe: my sister from baking kitchen Ella Rose Cakes. After the success of her courgette cake in the summer I tasked Ella with making The Flourishing Pantry a Christmas centre piece, with lots of lovely spices and a little less sugar than her more typical bakes might include! 

Food and yoga: a match made in heaven

Food and yoga: a match made in heaven

This week I've got another guest on the blog for you: the lovely Rachael O'Hegarty from Yoga Sound System. I'm teaming up with Rachael in January for the second of my Health Bloggers Community events in Dublin to host a supper club, with yoga, live DJ and a delicious three course meal. I ask Rachael a few questions ahead of the event to find out more about her, what got her into yoga and her relationship with food. 

Breakfast stuffed sweet potatoes

Breakfast stuffed sweet potatoes

We've probably all heard now about the trend for sweet potato toast which I am pleased to say I've never tried.

I think we're all in agreement that there's a lot of nutribabble out there. Knowing who to trust is something I've talked about a lot on the blog and is one of the reasons I keep writing and sharing.

Here are my top 5 which really help explain complex or confusing topics in the world of nutrition.

Chocolate and raspberry chickpea brownies

Chocolate and raspberry chickpea brownies

Following on from the outrageous success of my Ultimate Chocolate Smoothie Bowl which is basically now the biggest hit on the blog thanks to huge re-pinning on Pinterest, I have concluded that the world is indeed, completely and utterly chocolate mad. So I knew for my next snack recipe in the Pantry I wanted to include chocolate, and I thought brownies was the way to go.
