Chickpea Pops!


Today I discovered a delicious, healthy alternative to popcorn! Crunchy chickpea balls that are delicious to snack on, and could be an interesting addition to green salad.




  • If you’re using canned chickpeas, make sure to drain them thoroughly before use, otherwise prepare your chickpeas as per usual.
  • Place your chickpeas in a baking tray and under the grill in the oven.
  • Leave to grill, stirring every 5-10 minutes
  • Grill until chickpeas are golden brown and crunchy. Nyum!

Nectarine and Seed Breakfast Mix


Homemade breakfast mixes are a lot more healthy than store-bought cereals that contain loads of sugary nonsense.

My morning yogurt mixes vary, but this is a great one if you wake up with a sweet tooth or have fruit in the house that needs eating.


  • Plain, low-fat yogurt (or double cream, depending on your taste)
  • 1 Nectarine
  • Sunflower and hemp seeds
  • Raw oats



  • Cut the nectarine into chunks
  • Mix the yogurt, seeds, oat and fruit in a bowl
  • Enjoy a healthy, satisfying start to the day!
