Vegetarian Cottage Pie

This is another recipe using Quorn mince in place of beef mince. Cottage pie is a particular favourite of mine, especially in these cold winter months. It makes me feel warm and cosy and reminds me of days gone by where my Dad would slave away in the kitchen making it. Now it’s down to me to do the cooking, so I thought I would share the recipe. Enjoy!

8 Plant-Based Proteins You Should Be Eating

It's a common misconception that in order to get enough protein in your diet, meat is the only way.  So I've created a short list of plant-based proteins and their protein contents for those of you who are vegetarian, vegan or if you're simply thinking about changing your eating habits.

Vegetarian Spaghetti Bolognese

I love a good spag bol (and I know I’m not the only one!) but we all know that you can’t possibly have a great tasting spag bol without the added sugars, salts and fats. Or can we? This is my favourite recipe for a Bolognese, with Quorn mince in place of beef mince. Quorn is high in protein, tastes great and is low in saturated fats so I use it wherever I can.

5 Reasons Skipping Meals Won’t Help You Lose Weight

It's a tale as old as time, skipping meals will help you to lose weight. It makes sense right? You eat less, therefore the fat and calorie content going into your body is lower.

A Workout Playlist to Help You Kick Butt in the Gym

I struggle to workout to the music played in the gym, I much prefer listening to playlists that I've put together. So I wanted to share a playlist with you in the hope that it'll be the same for you.

June Monthly Favourites & Progress

As it's now the end of June, believe it or not! Wasn't Christmas last week?! I wanted to summarise how this month has gone for me. So here they are, my favourite music, netflix shows, book, workouts, food and my body progress alongside my goals for July.

Vegetarian Carbonara

Carbonara is my favourite go-to ‘cheat meal’ – this is the only time I’ll call it a cheat meal. It’s not cheating if it fits your macros! It’s simple to make, but the sauce traditionally contains a lot of cheese. So I thought I’d share with you my favourite recipe minus (most) of the cheese. The great thing about this recipe is that it also contains a good amount of protein!
