So people often talk about the things they pack when they travel, like latops, cameras, headphones, hats & sunnies.. the list goes on right?
Does anyone else prioritise snacks? Or as I like to call it, "BACK UP FOOD"? Sometimes when traveling to certain countries, I find it really handy to pack a few "Cup-a-soups" incase I can't find a nearby deli or get a little hungry in my hotel room.
Plus it's a perfect little bath-time meal too! 😉 #twobirdsonestone
PS. This is not a sponsored ad lol I just loves my bath-time 🛀
What sorts of NON-TYPICAL things do you pack? Do you have any clever SNACK TIPS to share?

• Want the recipe for this nutmeg, honey, lemon and walnut scroll?! Wellllllll you can get it in 65 DAYS because I’ve just decided to force myself to finish my FIRST proper cookbook before my birthday (March 24th). I’m planning to release two e-books, this first one is full of seasonal summer and autumn recipes, the next will feature recipes for winter and spring. They’ll be available as e-books initially but my goal is to print them once all four seasons are complete! The focus is on using what’s in season to make lots of fresh, yummy and predominantly plant based dishes, from ingredients you can easily grow at home. A few recipes I’m working on at the moment include a potato, thyme and caramelised spring onion pizza, beetroot, walnut and goats cheese fritters, and a sumac and berry upside down cake! I’m also trying to offer vegan options for as many of the recipes as I can ☺️ And now I’ll stop going on about it because (as you’ll see if you visit my website) I only have 65 days left to finish it! Argh! •

This pasta alla vodka is all I'm craving today 😍 Who doesn't love a nice creamy tomato sauce? Click the link in my bio to get the recipe!
Peanut Granola with Berries and homemade WALNUT MILK 😍. That was today's breakfast 😋. Haven't done an 'action shot' for way too long 🙊. Swipe to see the splash haha 😂. I accidentally poured the milk exactly into the raspberry so the milk ended up all over the place ✌🏼. Have you ever made your own nutmilk? 😊 It's so easy and tastes a lot better than store bought milk! 😍
All you need for the walnut milk is:
✽ 1 cup walnuts
✽ 4 cups water
✽ some maple syrup or a few dates
✽ a pinch of salt
↠soak the walnuts in water overnight
↠drain them and blend them with 4 cups fresh water, sweetener (optional) and a pinch of salt
↠blend in a high-speed blender for 30seconds to 1 minute, or until it's nice and smooth
↠pour the nutmilk into a nutmilkbag or a cheesecloth and squeeeeze 😋. That's it! You can store it in the fridge for about 3 days. And of course you can switch the walnuts for different nuts or a nut mixture, or add some cacao powder or cinnamon! 😊
Erdnuss Granola mit Beeren und selbstgemachter WALNUSS MILCH 😍. Das gab's heute zum Frühstück 😋. Ich hab schon ewig keinen 'Action shot' mehr gemacht, also wurde's mal wieder Zeit 😂. Ich hab die Walnussmilch ausversehen genau in die Mitte einer Himbeere gegossen 😂 ..das Ergebnis seht ihr auf dem zweiten Bild ✌🏼.
Habt ihr schonmal selbst Nussmilch gemacht? Das ist wirklich super einfach und die Milch schmeckt viel besser als gekaufte 😃. Alles was ihr für die Walnussmilch braucht ist:
✽ 1cup Walnüsse
✽ 4cups Wasser
✽ etwas Ahornsirup oder Datteln
✽ eine Prise Salz
↠weiche die Datteln über Nacht in Wasser ein
↠gieße sie ab und gib sie zusammen mit 4 cups frischem Wasser und den anderen Zutaten in einen Hochleistungsmixer
↠mixe für 30Sekunden bis 1Minute oder bis keine Stücke mehr übrig sind
↠gieße die Milch in einen Nussmilch Beutel oder ein Seihtuch und drücke die Milch durch
↠Schon fertig! 😊 Die Milch hält im Kühlschrank ca. 3 Tage. Und natürlich könnt ihr auch andere Nüsse oder eine Nussmilch gemacht verwenden oder Kakao oder Zimt etc dazugeben! 😊

enter grown up granola!
more like a messy deconstructed brittle but hey it’s delicious😍 takes less than 5 mins, no refined sugars, complex flavour (unlike that stuff in bags😔) and is fancy 💫 I love making this when I am craving granola but don’t have the time to make a fresh batch. this is a single serving but feel free to make more. it’s addictive. >>> all you’ll need is: •1tbsp ish of GOOD quality extra virgin olive oil (v important because good quality olive oil has that fruity smell and spicy bitter complex taste! not to mention the cheap stuff isn’t good for you)
TIPS: find a dark glass bottle, a mid to higher price point, make sure it says cold pressed and read the origin..if it’s from a mix of 3 countries that’s an immediate no. Italy and Greece are your best bets👌🏻 •2 tsp (or more if you like things sweet) raw honey 🍯 •small handful of chopped almonds •1tbsp raw sesame seeds •salt 🧂 of course
In a small case iron skillet (or regular skillet) heat olive oil and honey. once that’s warm toss in your chopped almonds and raw sesame seeds. throw in a generous pinch of sea salt and stir it around for a couple mins until golden. be careful not to burn! shut off heat and transfer to a cutting board/plate to cool and that’s it. full fat, organic greek yoghurt or coconut yoghurt + some fruit is how I like mine but you can even throw this on a salad or on a puréed soup as a nice crunchy element on top✨
Happy Friday folks, it’s very almost the weekend. 🤩
Bring on 3:35pm when the bell will go and I will be off for the weekend. But for now, it’s time for a slice of the most indulgent and simple tart you could possibly make. This Dark Chocolate Tart has gone down a storm in the team room this break time. There is nothing better than a slice of this rich tart, and a Cappuccino to recharge at elevensies.
This recipe is unbelievably simple. It really doesn’t take much in order to get this right. The flavours are sensational and the best part of this recipe is that you can garnish this tart with whatever you like. I’ve crushed yup some Maltesers, as they are one of my faves, to scatter on the top of my tart. Worth it defo! It adds a nice crunch to the silky filling.
300ml Double Cream
250g Dark Chocolate
2 tbsp. Nutella
225g Plain Flour
1. Preheat the oven to 200oc and prep a tin for your pastry case.
2. Crumb together the flour and the butter. Add the sugar and the egg to bring the pastry together into a ball. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
3. Dust the surface and roll out until big enough to fill a pastry case.
4. Fill the case. Prod the pastry with a fork and fill with greaseproof and baking beans. Bake for 25 minutes.
5. In a bowl chunk up the chocolate. Heat the double cream until it steams away. Pour over the chocolate and stir until both are combined.
6. Add the Nutella and stir. Then fill the pastry case and allow to set for 2 hours. Garnish maltsters and serve!
Spent an AMAZING day yesterday in #Chincha at #ViveroTopara plant nursery 🌱. The owner, Stefan Bederski gave @swhitt711 and I a beautiful tour of his farm, where he grows and produces an array of Peruvian goodness from #ají 🌶 to pecans 🥜 to avocado 🥑. He explained the importance of #organiceating and even sent us home with a little jar of his new ají sauce with #aguaymanto. Guess where @andinapdx gets their ají from!?
(EN/ITA) What does "COMFORT FOOD" mean to you? Is HUMMUS a comfort food for you?⠀
When I didn't have a good relationship with food, I was only able to think about comfort food as something bad, and I couldn't even identify which was mine. But then, when food became more than a fuel or a response to stressful situations, I've started to get a much clear idea of what comfort food means from a general perspective and for myself - it's often related to our memories, taste buds, traditions, and habits... it can change during the years, and it has a different meaning for each of us. When I've learned that comfort food is not the "enemy" of health, and it can simply be another way to describe one of our favorite preparations, I knew how much it was important to share this vision with many other people who need to make peace with food, and this is what I'm doing with my clients⠀⠀
Now I know I love a delicious hummus like the one in this 📷 (made with red kidney beans)... or a cozy soup and I will identify both of them as comfort food BUT I also know that sometimes it will be dark chocolate, and other days it will be a huge bowl of ripe tomatoes or pizza ➡ Don't be afraid to question your choices, change your point of view, or listen to your body⠀⠀
🍕You DON'T have to follow a perfect diet, or create the ideal healthy meal all the time, or eat only what is widely recognised as "superfood", or do exactly what you have seen from that famous lady in the magazine⠀⠀⠀
🍉You CAN choose a healthier lifestyle & eat delicious food, become a more intuitive eater, learn to trust your body, choose what is best for you, and support your well-being! Chiara #amatterofnourishment⠀⠀
ITA >> Cosa vuole dire per te "comfort food"? Consideri l'hummus un "comfort food"? Quando non avevo un buon rapporto col cibo, riuscivo a vederlo solo con un'accezione negativa e non ero nemmeno capace di dire esattamente quale fosse il mio. In seguito, però, quando il cibo è diventato per me non solo il carburante per le mie giornate o la risposta a situazioni stressanti, ho iniziato ad avere un'idea molto più chiara di cosa vuol dire "comfort food" da [continua⤵]
