With temperatures in London soaring into the 30s at the moment, it’s so hard to know what to eat. You need something nourishing, but you’d also like something light, and you don’t want to spend ages in the kitchen preparing it (we’ve got to get out and enjoy the sunshine while it lasts, right?).
So I’ve taken a little inspiration from the Middle East with this dish, after all who better to turn to than the people who are constantly blessed with these kind of temperatures! Tabbouleh is a super healthy and delicious vegan salad, traditionally made with parsley, mint, bulgur wheat, tomatoes and various spices. But I’ve put bulgar on the bench and substituted it in for cauliflower for a seriously light and gluten free salad. Continue reading →
There’s something ever so naughty about cookie dough. Perhaps it’s because you know that you should just put it ALL in the oven, but resisting the urge to eat half the raw mixture is about as easy as a week long juice cleanse. Or maybe it’s because you’re one of those people who likes to pick the cookie dough chunks out of their Haagen Dazs (pardon our French) while no one is looking.
Either way, there’s some very negative connotations around the stuff, but I’m happy to tell you that you CAN have your cake (well, cookie dough) and eat it. My raw cookie dough bites are made of only four ingredients, are super easy to make and are incredibly delicious. And GUILT FREE! Continue reading →
Mr H and I are having building work done at the moment, and although we are so excited for the end result, the last few weeks have certainly been a challenge. We’ve fought (and lost) many battles against dust, we’ve had to wash our dishes in the bathroom sink (gross) and our lounge currently looks like a jumble sale threw up on it. The other day we had a powercut. Mr H tried to fix it by swearing at the fuse box, but this didn’t seem to work. Magically the builders fixed it within five minutes the next day (they have superpowers I swear) but I’m now taking matters into my own hands just in case it happens again. Continue reading →
Here at Mrs Hollingsworth’s, we like all the days of the week, but if we had to choose a least favourite day, it would have to be Tuesday. And it turns out we aren’t alone – I mean people don’t say ‘see you next Tuesday’ for nothing now do they?
I said a BOOM BOOM BOOM, can you hear me say kale…KALE! We’re SO excited to share the yummiest, scrummiest, tastiest marinated kale salad. We literally want to eat it every single day.
Kale is well touted as a superfood, but it’s not always the easiest thing to eat. It can have a bit of a bitter taste on its own, but with the help of a sprinkling of ingredients it tastes divine and it is oh so good for you. Continue reading →
When I started off on my healthy eating journey I was very scared. How would I survive? What would I eat for snacks? I scoured the supermarkets, literally putting my money where my mouth was and spent a fortune on healthy energy bars. It didn’t take long for me to realise I was racking up the big bucks, so instead I started racking our brains as to how I could recreate my fave snacks in the comfort of my own home. After a little bit of experimenting I had the answer. Now I’m bringing you the easiest, yummiest energy balls you could ever wish to taste! And they only have FOUR ingredients! None of this scouring health food shops for oddly-named seeds and powders, your local supermarket should have all of the ingredients (and if not, well aisle be damned. Sorry.) Continue reading →
