Easy Low Carb Almond Loaf

This is a healthy, quick and easy Almond Loaf. I use almond meal instead of plain flour which reduces the carb content and I use honey instead of sugar, making it so much healthier. If you are new to low-carb baking, using almond meal is quite easy to begin with. But you have to remember that unlike regular flour, almond flour does not hold its structure as well because of the absence of gluten. The eggs added provide that structure, air for fluffiness and some protein as well. I have not used any butter or oil in it. I wanted … Continue reading Easy Low Carb Almond Loaf

Scrumptious Stuffed Omelette

This easy to make fluffy and filling omelette is great for breakfast or brunch. This recipe is ideal if you want to cut down on carbs as it is quite filling on its own and you can skip on eating bread along with it. I made this after church on Sunday for brunch and my son ‘inhaled’ his meal with a glass of milk. I had mine at a more sedate and civilised pace with a lovely cup of tea. Filled with red onions, green peppers and any left-over meat or sausages adds amazing flavour to this dish. You can … Continue reading Scrumptious Stuffed Omelette

Tropical Smoothie Bowl

This smoothie bowl is refreshing and will brighten your day. It is a wonderful combination of fruits, is simple to make and so tasty. I used mango, pineapple and papaya. The combination of the mango and pineapple is absolutely amazing, giving that fresh fruity flavour. Papaya is rich in vitamin C and antioxidants and full of fibre, it boosts your immunity and is great for the skin. You can either buy them separately and cube and freeze them for later use or buy the pre-cut and packaged variety from the freezer section in your grocery store. I also added ½ … Continue reading Tropical Smoothie Bowl

Strawberry Banana Date Smoothie Bowl

Smoothie bowls are a great healthy option for breakfast. They are easy to make and so yum. You do not want your smoothie bowl to be too thin in consistency. The frozen strawberries and bananas give a thick and creamy texture. The dates add a hint of sweetness, they were soaked in hot water for about 5 mins to soften them up and that way they blend easily. The rolled oats add thickness and help you stay fuller for longer. Strawberries are healthy and rich in vitamin C, potassium, folic acid and fibre. Chia seeds are high in vitamins, nutrients, … Continue reading Strawberry Banana Date Smoothie Bowl

Pear and Pecan Loaf

This loaf is easy to make and so tasty. This is a yummy way to use up any extra pears you have at home. The Pear and Pecan complement each other so well. It is great as a brunch or breakfast bread. The cinnamon and nutmeg take the flavours to another level. I chopped the pear into small pieces, but you can choose to grate instead. The Pecans are roughly chopped as I like to bite into bits of pecan. This does freeze really well. And can also be made into muffins. Ingredients Vegetable oil – ½ cup Caster Sugar … Continue reading Pear and Pecan Loaf

Healthy Pear Spinach Smoothie

This is another one of my healthy smoothies. It is packed with fruits, greens and milk that provide vitamins, Iron and calcium which makes this an ideal breakfast for those who don’t have time for a sit-down breakfast. Can also be had after your workout. Any milk of your choice can be added. I use regular low-fat milk as I like the taste and it also contains a decent amount of protein and calcium. I have also made this with Almond milk. Almond milk is lower in carbohydrates than regular milk but it does not naturally contain calcium, so if … Continue reading Healthy Pear Spinach Smoothie

Quick Orange, Date and Walnut Loaf

I love a loaf with some fresh citrusy and fun flavours that I can just eat as is without having to slather something on it. This recipe is so simple to throw together – for starters, a whole orange (with the peel on!) along with orange juice, egg and oil are mixed in your blender. How easy is that!!! The dry ingredients are also just put together in the blender except for the dates and walnuts as we want them as yummy bits in the loaf and hence are added and mixed in at the end. Dates are like natures … Continue reading Quick Orange, Date and Walnut Loaf
