Dairy Free / Free-From Haul

  Hello there! Hope you’re doing well, enjoying the weekend ๐Ÿ™‚   This weekend I decided to pick up a bunch of groceries from the Free From ranges at a couple of different shops: Sainsburys, Holland and Barrett and Tesco. Having a problem with milk products, which are in practically everything these days, means there’s…

Cubanos night! A la Chef movie

Happy Sunday folks!! Recently we watched the film Chef with our good friends Gee and Craig, a great choice on their part as I thoroughly enjoyed the film particularly as I love cooking SOOO much. If you’ve seen it you’ll know it’s inadvisable to watch this film on an empty stomach, everything in it looks…

Efforts to clear my adult acne

Hey there people So I’m 27 years old, which I’m sure many of you will think ‘wow that is old to still have acne’ but it’s surprising just how manyย people my age and older still suffer with acne on a daily basis. It’s just not something most people talk about or take pictures of to…

Veggie Omlette recipe

Happy Sunday everyone!! Hope you’re enjoying the day ๐Ÿ™‚ Today I chose to have something nice and light for lunch and I thought I would go for a healthy -ish omelette filled with veggie goodness ๐Ÿ™‚ I wouldn’t normally write up something so basic but it was absolutely delicious so I felt like I had…

Maca Powder – health food alert! :)

Good day to you ladies and gents, I just felt like having a quick chat about something I’ve been trying lately which I’ve been enjoying and have seen benefits from already. My hormones have been all over the place since I was a teenager, causing really bad skin and lots of pain around that time…

Dairy free, syrup-free cinnamon and ginger latte

Morning guys!! I’m getting super excited about Christmas and the festive season so much we actually put our tree up last night ๐Ÿ˜› I know, crazy people. And this morning I decided to try and make myself a festive spiced latte, without using sugary syrups and artificial flavourings. I started out with about 2 tsps…

Lactose-Free Sugar Cookies! Halloween-ish themed

Hi guys!!! So because it’s Sunday (and on Sundays I love to bake) I decided to make some sugar cookies. I’m feeling incredibly festive but having to resist getting too Christmassy just yet so I thought I’d make them Halloweeny. I haven’t got any food colouring but that kind of works to an advantage because…

Comfort Food

Hi guys! So one of my favourite meals as a child was my granny’s mac and cheese. Proper, home made comfort food and I made sure soon as I learnt how to cook that I knew how to make the mac and cheese sauce. I’ve since adapted this to my lactofree diet, because I simply…

Simply, dairy free breakfast

So I just thought I’d share with you a breakfast that I’ve been eating a LOT this past few weeks ๐Ÿ™‚ and maybe it’ll inspire you to try something different for breakfast which is quite healthy. This bowl of loveliness is about three tablespoons of Alpro Soy plain yoghurt, two strawberries cut up into chunks,…

As if you hadn’t seen enough pictures of soup!

So my motto at the moment seems to be ‘if you have too much of it, make soup!’ And that’s exactly what I did with a large can of sweetcorn that had been hanging around in our cupboards for ages with nothing to do. Not paying rent or anything, cheek. So I decided to make…

Fruity, lacto-free flapjacks!

I have been craving flapjacks for weeks and seeing as all store-bought ones contain butter I figured I would just have to make my own. So eventually I gave in and found a dairy-free recipe online which I tried out but found it was too crumbly and didn’t hold together well at all. Then I…
