I've teamed up with Unbeelievable Health to design this recipe to boost the immune system ready for winter. Packed with ingredients containing Vitamin C and antioxidants, this lovely sweet elixir also makes use of those leftover bits from your pumpkin carving. You know I hate waste!
I've recently partnered up with Asquith London to write a few posts for their #AsquithWorld blog. The first of these picked out 5 of my favourite Nutrition & Wellness podcasts. But I wanted to go one step further for the readers of my blog and give you an even wider selection of the stuff I listen to.
Wow. What a night! Last month I was absolutely honoured to be awarded Best Free From & Illness Recovery blog 2017. The whole experience has really made me reflect on my place in the blogging world over one year on from starting The Flourishing Pantry. Here are a few of my thoughts and photos from the night.
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.
It's far too easy these days to rely on Google for answers. But you cannot guarantee that the results you find on the first page are actually authored by people who are qualified to answer your query. So I took a course run by the highly regarded Monash University through Future Learn called Food As Medicine. Here are a few things I discovered.
When I posted pictures of this recipe on my Instagram Story I got several people asking how to make the tahini dressing. It's the classic thing of having something in the cupboard that you only use for one dish and then don't know what to do with the rest of the jar. This is a brilliant way to use it and the dressing is so versatile.
Slipping from healthy eating blogger to crazy hippy girl is exactly the sort of worry I might have had when I started changing my diet and focusing more on my health. And until this month I really believed that yoga was more about relaxation than exercise. But the universe has conspired to change my opinion...
I've been exploring recipes together with Yogi2Me recently all with the theme "What does a yogi eat?" and this week's recipe is one of the rather tasty results of that exploration which I wanted to share with you all. Regardless of whether you interpret your yogic diet to include animal products or not this recipe is very much a vegan friendly and one for all to try. You can use any berries you want...
I'm always looking for new breakfast inspiration and first came across baked oats thanks for two lovely Irish ladies - Ciara from The Irish Balance and Super Healthy Steph. They did a collaboration showcasing baked oats, billing it as "cake for breakfast" so naturally I was interested! I'm building on that great inspiration and going with my own baked oats Flourishing Pantry style with sweetness from a fruity source.
Last year on the blog I wrote an article very proudly sharing with you all that I’d managed to lose a stone on a ‘yeast free’ diet and that I was keeping it off.So now I feel like a statistic about people that can't keep their weight-loss off when I tell you that one year on from writing that post I have in fact put back on all that weight.
This week I am bringing you a BBQ special! I was looking at my main course offerings and thought it was about time I gave you guys something for the grill which would be perfect for the summer. We've just had the hottest day of the year so far here in Ireland and the smells of other people's BBQ's has definitely got me inspired.
We're back for a final installment chatting all things gluten with the lovely Lea from Can Eat Attitude. This week we're finishing up with a bit of science and talking about whether bloggers need to be responsible for the messages they are spreading on whether or not to eat follow a gluten-free diet.
Now we all know how much I enjoy baking. That's right.... not a lot! But in order to give you guys a brilliant cake recipe I asked my sister Ella of Ella Rose Cakes to write me a recipe.
