Frozen Blueberry & Banana Smoothie Bowl

Frozen Blueberry & Banana Smoothie Bowl

I don’t often eat smoothie bowls. But when I do, it’s partly because I feel like something sweet and ice-cold with minimal chewing requirements (often somewhat hungover when this craving strikes) but also because [...]

Healthy Vegan Muffins

Healthy Vegan Muffins

Who doesn't love muffins? What makes them so great? The name muffin must help. It's a nice word, right? Like mittens or melons or muppets. Nice to say, nice to hear.

I've added a photo of this porridge topped with dried figs, toasted seeds and nut butter to the story so many times. It is absolutely my go-to breakfast as these days [...]
