Summer Water Spritzer

So this drink was in my Antipasti in the Sun post from last week, but this drink is something I make all the time in the summer! I love spritzers and all types of fruity, fresh and healthy cocktails, but this is something I love to have when I don’t want to drink alcohol yet…

Hi guys! I love salads in the summer, especially for lunch or as a side at dinner time. One of my go-to favorites is this simple salad that I always make when I stock up on fresh veg from the Guildford market on the weekends! Even if you don’t have a market nearby, you can…

Fruit infused waters

In this summer heat, sometimes we forget to drink enough water! I don’t know about you, but I definitely feel sick, tired and lethargic when I am dehydrated. I’ve done two other posts about the importance about drinking water and staying hydrated, so I wanted to continue this important topic and make this blogpost all about…

Recipe: Healthy, easy cocoa ice cream

I don’t know about you, but I love ice cream! Who doesn’t?! But with trying to eat healthy sometimes I don’t allow myself to have it whenever I fancy, so I tend to make healthy ice-cream! The base is frozen bananas, which I’ve used in my smoothies and smoothie bowls before, but they can also…

Recipe: Black velvet cupcakes

So for Jonas’ birthday I wanted to make him some red velvet cupcakes, but it’s either me or the food colouring both in Lithuania and in the UK isn’t very good since I can never get the batter to be red- so I made him black velvet cupcakes! They’re exactly the same as red velvet…

Recipe: Healthy, gluten-free, vegan banana bread

This recipe is so delicious, very filling and I love the taste the spices add to it! It was inspired by a vegan banana bread I found online, but I have changed the quantities and the sweetener used throughout the times I have baked it. It’s so delicious, vegan, sugar and gluten free and if…

This recipe is so delicious, healthy and filling! Back home in Lithuania, grikiai (buckwheat) is extremely popular and it’s definitely a staple in everyone’s cupboard.

Recipe: Prosciutto Asparagus

I love asparagus and the amazing health benefits it has such as being a great source of fibre, vitamins A, C, E and K and the fact that it is known to contain minerals that enhance glucose transport via insulin from the bloodstream to our cells . I’ve previously posted  a lovely feta asparagus recipe and…
