Cranberry and Orange Bread

Half my problem with sticking to clean eating is finding the right kinds of foods to snack on. Often I won’t fancy digging in to some salads/vegetables. I’d been wanting to make some fruity bread for a while when this recipe came about. It’s sticky, sweet and perfectly filling. Whilst the ingredient list may seem long, its…

Roasted Pepper Homous

Clean eating has its benefits. That’s a slight underestimation perhaps, but in general, eating clean is great because you get to have so many snacks! Homous is basically a staple snack because you can pile it on top of anything, or just use it as a tasty dip. This recipe, like last week’s Pepped Up…

Pepped Up Pesto

Pesto is one of my favourite things ever. Whilst it is delicious mixed into pasta, it also tastes great as a marinade on meats like chicken and beef. I just think it is a really versatile thing that can be added to so many meals. When I started eating clean, making my own pesto was…

Pulled Pork Sandwiches

When I posted a picture on instagram (my username is palindromepoppet) plenty of people were saying how delicious these sandwiches looked. Now, I’m not going to lie… they are delicious. They’re ridiculously juicy, packed full of flavour and bursting with succulent meat. The main difference from non-clean pulled pork is that instead of being smothered in bbq,…

Minty Chocolate Ice Cream

If you’ve read my blog for a while you’ll know that I have such a sweet tooth. When I started eating clean my main thought was … but what about all those sweet treats that I love?! I read about making ice cream with bananas ages ago on a vegan blog, so I thought I’d…

Luxury Bread & Butter Pudding

Valentines Eve fell upon us last Thursday, and I’d been promised a tapas feast. The responsibility of dessert, however, fell into my hands. As I’ve given up high sugar cake, biscuits and sweet treats for lent (I’m a slave driver to myself – just watch me cave), I was a bit stuck for what to…

Low Calorie Carrot Cake.

I’m just going to throw it out there. A slice of this cake has: 151 calories, 8g of fat, 3g of protein, 9g of sugar, and 136mg of salt. All in all, it is one of the lowest calorie carrot cake (and cake in general) recipes I’ve ever come across. I have, over the past few…

King Prawn and Smoked Salmon Spaghetti

Literally the yummiest 300 calories you will ever consume. It’s light yet still filling, has a few flavours that compliment each other well. Can be made in around 20 minutes too, so go go! You will need (serves 2): White sauce (I bought this but I usually make my own with a little bit of…

Low Calorie Slow Cooker Curry

I’m not a curry kinda girl. I don’t particularly like spicy food and the only curries that I like have millions of calories in. The average curry at a curry house that I would consume has about 1,000 calories in it (including chapatti). Matt absolutely loves curries and so often I find myself having to…

Avocado Eggs

Eggs are fantastic to have at breakfast. Full of protein, low in fat and really tasty they are great to fill up on in a morning (especially if you’re watching your weight). This recipe is fairly simple but a really tasty change from the usual scrambled eggs. It has a slightly different flavour and the…
