Hello, it’s Friday already, yay! It’s really starting to feel like spring here. The sunshine is lifting my mood and although it’s still really cold I don’t mind too much as I’m heavily pregnant now would prefer it cooler rather than baking hot.
I’ve still not been making many new recipes as I’ve still not had the energy but I’m on a mission to save money at the moment and clear out my freezer of old food before the baby arrives so I can make more useful quick meals for that time. So I’ve been eating up a lot of old batches and there are loads of them, weeks worth. It’s surprising how quickly your freezers can be stacked full of homemade food if you don’t keep a regular check on it. Anyway, it’s good I don’t have to make much from scratch at the moment. I think I’ll just make a lot of pasta sauces for when the baby arrives. Let me know if you have any ideas for quick healthy meals that can easily be kept in the freezer.
I just love Healthy Vegan Fridays. I say to myself, I really need to find a particular recipe, and then it appears right on my blog with such perfect timing! This week I wanted to find a healthy easter egg recipe for my toddler and I made Gabby’s Peanut Butter & Caramel Filled Chocolate Eggs which were absolutely gorgeous. I wrapped them in foil and hid them in easy to find places which was so much fun. This was the first time we also gave our little girl shop bought chocolate made with sugar, and she actually preferred Gabby’s Eggs and wanted ‘more more more’!
I of course overindulged in sugary chocolate and ended up wired all night and ill all the next day. I guess I still haven’t learnt how to eat sugar in moderation. I guess I’m just a sugar addict and I probably should just accept it’s not something I’m ever going to be able to have in moderation. Still we had a lovely Easter. I hope you did too. Do you manage to stay healthy over Easter or do you indulge a bit too much too?

Oh how I wish I’d not seen this recipe! With my lack of energy for making food from scratch I often go without treats, but now I have no excuse as this is so quick and easy. White chocolate too, how could you say no!
I’ve actually made a quinoa pizza base before and it works so well, but I’ve never actually had a fruit pizza. It’s time I rectified that. How delicious does this look!
My Favourites from Last Week
Healthy No Bake Chocolate Oatmeal Cookie Nests
Oh yum, I’ve been craving these really badly this Easter seeing them in all the shops. Even though Easter is over my cravings are still there so I’m really going to HAVE to make these!
What a perfect idea, not only is there a pancake mix you just need to add water to, but options for different flavour pancakes too. Mmmm.
Strawberry coconut almond spread
I’m all about easy and simple recipes at the moment and I love that this is so quick and sugar free too. I think this would be perfect as a jam substitute.

Get results like this...Hi Katherine,
I just wanted to tell you I completed the 7 day detox and I feel so great.
I have lost 6lbs, do not feel like I need more my morning coffee, the flushing of my facial skin from rosacea has dramatically reduced and I am so excited to wake up each morning and make a green thickie for breakfast!!
I am a stay at-home, homeschooling momma of 3 littles and at times so busy I would forget to feed myself!
I would go most of the day without eating and then snack on random things.
I gained 60 pounds the last 6 years during pregnancy.
I have lost 30lbs but recently plateaued and have felt so frustrated.
I’ve tried everything from paleo and keto to the point where I didn’t know what to eat or how much and felt like even eating fruit was bad for me which thankfully it’s not!
What a game changer for me. Thank you for sharing a simple but effective program.
I’m so excited to continue another week with this plan! Thankful Stephanie
