Roasted Brussels Sprouts - This is just a basic recipe, but there is a reason — it’s just plain good. These pint-sized cabbages take on a nutty flavor when roasted. It’s the difference between a boiled or baked potato.

Cold Soba Noodle Kale Salad with Chilli and Soy Dressing

I’ve been in love with soba noodles since the first time I had them in Toronto several years ago. Any Torontonians that frequent the incredible Fresh restaurant know the pure joy of getting one of their Buddha Bowls on top of soba noodles, but the truth is that they are far more versatile than that.

Soba noodles are made from buckwheat, which as well as being fantastic for you is very easy to cook. Dried soba noodles take just a couple of minutes to cook in boiling water, meaning that they’re a great inclusion for a quick lunch or dinner like this one. There’s nothing I love more than quickly whipping together something stunning, because it makes people think you’re the culinary version of Mary Poppins (I am English, after all).

Kale, soy, lime, garlic, sesame – this dish has it all, AND it’s healthy. What more could you ask for?

Pumpkin Cake with Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting

Really nice recipes. Every hour.


"I am a big girl. A voluptuous, curvy, dress-wearing lesbian. I love my body; it’s the only one I’ll ever have. I eat a lot of greens and work out and drink gin martinis and put M&Ms in my froyo and sometimes I don’t do anything but watch Project Runway. I am allowed to look sexy, feel sexy, and be in love. I am worthy of all of those things, and so are you. Own your good and bad, and all the scary parts that you’ve been covering up because it is yours and no amount of judgement can tell you how to love your body. In the words of Sonya Renee, the body is not an apology. You are magic.


Yoga Guide: Yoga for the hips! (New post up on!)

Hip flexibility is something that is so important but yet so overlooked in our daily lives. Our daily routines can create a lot of tension in our hip joints without us even realising it. 

Therefore, today’s practice is a very yin style of practice, that can help to gradually open up our hips, gain greater range of motion, and help to prevent injuries!

my life seems to be a never ending cycle of “i’m gonna start working out again!” and “nah fuck that i’m gonna take a nap instead”
