Paleo Lasagne

So I bet you could see this coming a mile off…this week I’ve made bolognese sauce and béchamel sauce…which obviously come together best in a lasagne!  It’s one of those foods that I miss, and to be honest I’ve never cooked before, mainly because I thought it was too time consuming.  Well the answer to…

Fish Cafe, Hampstead, London

90 mins of Power Yoga left me aching in a good way and wanting to do some more exercise.  We had plans to meet Dan’s family tonight in Hampstead for dinner, so we decided to walk there as all in all it would probably be about a 2hr walk and the route was nice one,…

Smoked Salmon & Summer Vegetable ‘Risotto’

Tonight I was staying at my parents’ house, and it was just going to be my mum and I as my dad was away.  We both like to eat the same thing and we both eat a similar diet.  Her’s is the Specific Carbohydrate Diet which is quite a bit stricter than the made-up one…

Caprese Chicken ‘Pasta’ with Courgetti Spaghetti
