A simple, tasty snack full of nutritious nuts and seeds.

I used walnuts, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, chia seeds and chopped dates in this recipe. You could also use other nuts, seeds and dried fruit like cashew nuts, sesame seeds, dried apricots, raisins, etc.  I recommend using chia seeds if you can though. They help the flapjacks stick together.

1 tablespoon chia seeds

1 tablespoon honey

about 50g mixed nuts (almonds, cashews, walnuts, etc. I used mixed nuts I got in Lidl)

3 tablespoons almond butter

2 tablespoons cacao powder

a drop of vanilla essence

Step 2: Put ground nuts in mixing bowl along with almond butter, cacao powder and vanilla essence. Mix everything together well.

Cacao Chia Yogurt Pudding

This pudding makes a great healthy breakfast. You prepare everything the night before so in the morning you just take it out of the fridge, add your toppings and eat.

When left overnight chia seeds expand and absorb a lot of the yogurt creating a thick pudding.

You can add whatever toppings you like. I put strawberries, raspberries and blueberries but you could also put banana, mango, pineapple, nuts, honey, etc.



2 tablespoons chia seeds

4 tablespoons yogurt of your choice (I used Greek style coconut yogurt but you can use any type of yogurt. If you would like to make it vegan you can use a non-dairy yogurt)

1 teaspoon cacao powder



Step 1: Put chia seeds, yogurt and cacao powder in bowl. Mix together well. Cover and put in fridge overnight. 


Step 2: In the morning take the pudding out of the fridge and add toppings of your choice. Then you can eat! 


Healthy Chocolate Bites (Raspberry Flavour)

I made healthy chocolate bites today following my usual recipe – I just added in some raspberries to make them raspberry flavour.  Tastes really good!

I love my usual chocolate bites but it is nice to try a different flavour for a change. Lidl sells a nice raspberry dark chocolate. I got the idea for raspberry flavour from that.

I mashed up about 10 raspberries and mixed in with all the other ingredients.



Pear Soup for Sore Throat


My throat was a bit sore so I made this pear soup. According to Chinese medicine pears are good for the throat. They are supposed to get rid of excess heat in the body or something.

To make the soup I just chopped up some pears and put them in a pot with some water and boiled for about 15 minutes. I added some ginger and honey.

After eating this soup my throat felt much better. I highly recommend trying this if you have a sore throat.
