Kiwi & Walnut Salad

I never used to be a fan of salad. More often than not, they’re about as exciting as daytime TV; which usually leads to you letting your cheat day slip. You’ll go from cheat day to cheat week before you can shout “take-out pizza”. Let’s be honest, none of us want that to happen. Don’t just plunk a bowl of leaves in front of you hoping you’ll feel satisfied after, that’s almost the equivalent of ordering an exotic cocktail made entirely of water. It’s just not going to hit the spot the way you like it.

Anyone who knows me well knows I’m often test running various diets for weeks at a time. Lately I’ve become more and more interested in the Paleo diet, the ideology behind it inspires me. Now don’t get me wrong, I don’t know if I could completely sack off all the horribly delicious foods that we all regret eating almost instantly, but it’s sure worth a shot for a couple of weeks or so.

Like my dad, I’ve always been a milkshake kinda’guy. It’s always my go-to beverage if I am feeling sorry for myself, although I seem to use that as an excuse more and more to over-indulge on a Sunday, mainly because it’s Sunday (Surely I’m not alone on this…). – Naturally the idea of crafting a health-based milkshake has a pretty solid appeal and after introducing myself to the world of matcha, it opened numerous culinary doors.

Pancake Day: Vegan Caramelised Pear Pancakes

Lets be honest, pancakes aren’t a particularly difficult-to-make delicacy are they? Once you’ve mastered the flip, you’re pretty much a Liam Neeson of the kitchen, just with more pancakes and fewer guns. Sometimes, I like to imagine I’m of the same calibre as Mr Neeson by spinning the pan during a flip reciting the words “I will make you… and I will flip you“; maybe I’m just weird. Don’t judge me.
