Recipes

Colourful. Simple. Tasty. Medicine.

Food can be all of that and more. It is about nutrition, but it also about much more than that. Like creativity in the kitchen. Gratitude for the produce and the connection we experience when sharing a meal with others.

Cooking is about creating. Eating is about pleasure, joy and satisfaction. 

Honour your hungers. Fill your heart.

Feast on your life!

Salads

Weekday Chickpea Super Salad

What about a quick nourishing meal that doesn't take time or effort to make? Or cost the earth? This dish is one of my all time favourites. If it wasn't for the simple fact that my body seem to crave the odd bit of meat, I could easily and happily eat this kind of...

A Colourful Detox Salad

A New Year, a New You. This seems to be the message every you look at the moment. It is all about new year's resolutions, detoxing and diets. If you, like most people just enjoyed the holidays a little too much and feel like it is time to get back on track, then how...

Kale Salad with an Orange-Tahini Dressing

Kale is one of those super foods. Not as fancy as inca berries or maca or something else that we may get from the South American continent. The mighty kale may actually just travel as far as from your back garden to your plate. It is a perfect vegetable for winter...

Lemon Poppyseed Muffins – Celebrations & A Giveaway!

We're turning one! A little over a year ago this food blog was born. It all started with an idea that it would be so much more fun to cook, photograph and blog about the food I cook in my own kitchen and the type of food I recommend to my clients. Getting a brand new...

Easy Peasy Raw Peanut Butter Chocolate

Have you ever tried raw chocolate or even better still, tried to make our own? It isn't half as difficult as you may think. I can still remember a few years ago when I ordered my first ever bag of raw cacao powder from the internet. I was soooo excited! Because I have...

Better-For-You Peanut Butter Chocolate Bites

Are you on the "Quitting Sugar Train"? There's so much hype and information around about the dangers of  sugar these days. It feels a little overwhelming at times. Not to mention confusing! The science of nutrition seems to be forever evolving and changing. Eat this....

Strawberry Nana Icecream

We are still enjoying some warm weather here in beautiful co. Cork, so this week I am going to treat you to a really simple yet healthy "ice cream" recipe. And not too many words, promise! I'm currently writing this from my temporary outdoor office. God bless the...

Raw Lemon “Cheese” Cake – with Summer Berries

  This raw cake is surprisingly easy to make, tastes amazing and is naturally gluten, dairy  and refined sugar free. I kind of wish I could take credit for the recipe, but at least the pictures are all mine. Which of course means I had the pleasure of both cooking and...

Fruit & Nut Truffle Cake

Just incase one Christmas treat recipe wasn't enough, here is a second one. I'm still making a few give-away treats, so just so glad I got all my presents bought early. Apart from making the last few presents I am all set for the holidays now. Just have to pack my...

Date Truffles Three Ways

So Christmas is almost upon us. Again. Carols and jingles on the radio. Shiny lights in the streets. Santa ads on the telly. Minced pies and mulled wine. Smells of ginger, cloves and cinnamon. It's the same story every year. You think you have lots of time to get...

Raw Chocolate Fudge Brownies

Chocolate! Who doesn't love chocolate? Well one thing is for sure, I certainly do! The thing is though, it is usually full of refined sugar, cheap vegetable oils and not a whole lot of goodness, so it it hard to justify eating it if you are trying to eat clean. The...

Hemp & Quinoa Protein Bars – And a warm welcome!

So here we go... The very first blog post on Straightforward Nutrition's new shiny website! I am pretty excited to begin this new part of our journey. I've been thinking about it for months now. How lovely it would be to create a space that would be dedicated to food....
