Pad Thai Edamame Noodles

My newest favourite food is Organic Edamame Spaghetti. It is made with only edamame (green soybeans) and water. No weird stuff added that I can’t pronounce, which is always handy. I must say that I do have a stronger love for these than the black bean spaghetti; they have a much more of a starchy-rice-noodle consistency and […]

I go for wild because it’s more nutritious; it has half the amount of saturated fat, contains more calcium, Iron and zinc, and less salt. So when I do lay […]

Beetroot & Lentil Greek Salad

A couple of weeks ago I tried out a new restaurant, “The Real Greek” and I had the most amazing, bursting in flavour beetroot salad that inspired me to make this recipe. (Sidenote: their entire menu was incredible and you will be left lost for choice.) Some people aren’t down with beetroot; a bit like […]
