In Defence of ‘Clean Eating’

I want to preclude this post by saying that I am a lifelong fan of gluten in all its forms. I adore cheese, I can polish off a Five Guys burger like there’s no tomorrow, and chocolate is my BFF. I am a fan of all food generally (except mushrooms, but let’s not get into […]

How to Cook Steak Properly – an Organic Meat Masterclass

Warning to vegetarians – you may want to look away now! I had the pleasure of going along to an Organic Meat Masterclass last week held at my local Whole Foods store. All week in preparation for my 10k race I had adopted a sober, plant-based diet as that’s when I feel at my healthiest. However, […]

5 Ingredient Recipe: Vanilla Chia Pudding

This is hands down one of my favourite healthy desserts like everrrr. It’s so easy to make and really satisfying. You COULD say it’s a healthy cross between jelly and rice pudding (which used to be my favourite as a kid… except when served with a nasty brown skin on top!) Chia seeds are readily available […]

Interview with Mel Wells, founder of the Green Goddess Life

I’m back from holidaaaayyyy! After a rough week of  watching sunsets, sampling local wines and wandering the ancient streets of Santorini it’s a great feeling to be back at my desk with an already fading tan… Hmm maybe not so much. However, I have missed giving For Good Times’ Sake all the love and attention it […]

5 Ingredient Recipe: Raw Almond Butter Treats with Chocolate Icing

Well, this is probably the most unhealthy thing I’ve ever made in an attempt to be “healthy” in all my life. But screw it, these massively rich but decadently moreish raw cakes deserve some fanfare for combining five of my all time favourite ingredients. To tell you the truth, I’m not even sure what to call […]

Belle Gibson & The Backlash on Wellness

This week a sad and shocking news story was reported. Wellness blogger Belle Gibson confirmed that she lied about having terminal cancer, after having built a huge following online for treating her “disease” with a gluten and sugar-free diet. Her book ‘The Whole Pantry‘ has been taken off the shelves, her bestselling app removed from the […]

5 Ingredient Recipe: Smoked Mackerel Kedgeree

All hail mackerel! One of the most underrated fish in my opinion. So oily, so smoky-salty, so good. This recipe is cheap as chips too – though I have bent the five ingredient rule ever so slightly and added the spices as extras. You could get away with just curry powder if you’re on a […]

5 Ingredient Recipe: Courgette, Feta & Mint Fritters

It’s time for another five ingredient recipe! This project is already proving to me that you don’t need many ingredients AT ALL to make tasty meals. Whether it’s a soup, salad, main or dessert, taking things back to basics has really helped me save time and money. I have lots more recipes that I’m mega excited to […]

5 Ingredient Recipe: Buckwheat Blueberry Pancakes

It’s Pancake Day today! To celebrate I’m sharing the recipe for this stack of delicious buckwheat blueberry pancakes that I made over the weekend as a lazy Sunday treat. I felt like I owed my boyfriend a decent breakfast as he made a sterling effort on the Valentines Day front! Buckwheat flour is practically identical […]

Optibac Probiotics Review

Since my trip to the Chuckling Goat farm last summer I’m now much more aware of the power of probiotics. It turns out that giving our tummies some TLC can do wonders for your overall health as well as specific conditions. Probiotics can come in the form of fermented foods like sauerkraut, kefir/yoghurt drinks and […]
