Gluten Free Hazelnut Praline SPONGE CAKE + A GIVEAWAY!!!

March 15, 2019Gluten Free Hazelnut Praline SPONGE CAKE + A GIVEAWAY!!!

As soon as Sponge announced their Gluten Free Hazelnut Praline cake, I knew I would have to find an excuse to treat myself! So when Sponge gave me the opportunity to try out a cake of my choice – I jumped up and down with excitement! (Preemptively burning off calories before the inevitable cake coma.) Free cake – was this a fairy-tale?! Somebody pinch me.

Wild Thyme – Review

March 10, 2016Wild Thyme – Review

Today I’m bringing you a little write-up of one of my favourite places to eat in the city!! Wild Thyme is a vegan and vegetarian cafe nestled right here in the heart of Norwich. It’s located upstairs above Rainbow Wholefoods, and just so happens to be less than a 2 minute walk away from my workplace!

Christmas Menu – Raw Chocolate Orange Tart

December 11, 2015Christmas Menu – Raw Chocolate Orange Tart

So here we are! The finale, the pièce de résistance, the ultimate showstopper! Completing my Christmas menu is this rich, dark and sumptuous Chocolate Orange Tart! It also just so happens to be, a raw, no-bake dessert, that’s free-from gluten, dairy and refined sugar. Wowzas. Who said Christmas couldn’t be both indulgent and healthy?

Christmas Menu – Spiced Parsnip Soup

November 22, 2015Christmas Menu – Spiced Parsnip Soup

I don’t know if you’ve noticed lately, but Christmas Day is rapidly approaching! As much as I love pretty much everything about this festive season, it can be a bit of a fiasco when you have a food allergy or intolerance.

Summer King Prawn Courgetti

July 12, 2015Summer King Prawn Courgetti

So, unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past year, you will have probably heard of a little thing called spiralizing. One day (not so long ago) some clever clogs decided – HELL, let’s make spirals out of vegetables! Since then, it’s become one of the biggest healthy eating trends of recent years. That’s right! Goodbye carbs, wheat and after-dinner bloating – we don’t want you anymore! Now we can make spaghetti, linguine and noodles out of all kinds of veg, and we’re not looking back.

Avocado Chocolate Mousse

I have two things to say to the person who decided to put avocado and chocolate together for the first time.

Coconut Water Refresher

June 12, 2015Coconut Water Refresher

Summer is finally here! I know this because I’m gravitating towards anything coconut flavoured. But the sun is also out, which is another teeny-tiny MAJOR clue that we’ve entered summertime. Could Britain really… actually… be having nice weather? Good lord.

Filmore and Union Review

May 9, 2015Filmore and Union Review

Finding somewhere to eat in an unfamiliar city can feel like a daunting task for those of us suffering with food allergies, intolerances or just wanting to eat clean. Especially when you don’t want to revisit the generic gluten-free menus from the usual suspect big-name chains. I don’t know about you, but when I take a trip to a new city, I want to check out unique independents or local chains, places I wouldn’t be able to find in my local hometown. Sadly that’s become a real challenge when travelling, and extensive planning and research needs to be done. Before a trip to York with my partner, I apprehensively started googling places I could eat. Quite quickly I realised, I need not have worried… I found Filmore and Union.
