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. I won't spoil the surprise but it turns out baking isn't always easy for a pro, especially when you're working without sugar. I'll let Ella tell the story...
I spend a lot of time on Instagram and as a result I spot lots of lovely accounts with stunning food and photography on an almost daily basis. You want to know the crazy thing? Sometimes these accounts have really, really small followings. So here I'm celebrating 10 under 10k that you really must start following.
I don't know what has got into me lately but I am totally chocolate obsessed. I am going to blame it entirely on moving in with my boyfriend who is also more than partial to a bit of the cocoa stuff. Regardless I decided that a seriously indulgent chocolate smoothie recipe was well overdue on the Pantry.
In a new four part series I'm chatting with Coeliac Lea Tierney from Can Eat Attitude. Completely confused about whether gluten is right for me, I talk to someone for whom it really is poison. In this first installment I discover what's Lea's attitude to people going gluten free if they're not Coeliac. And errr... that includes me!
My tiny little blog is just about one year old now and the fantastic thing I've discovered through it is the new people I get to meet and share excitement and interest in health and food with. So I was delighted when Emma Lawson got in touch to see if we could do a guest blog post exchange on topics that really interested us.
Inspired as ever by my explorations online and on social media shakshuka has been appearing on my feeds for months, but I needed a nice free Bank Holiday weekend to give me the time to try it.... and wow, I'm glad I did.
