Carrot Cake Mini Muffins

Wednesday, 27 January 2016

There is actually nothing better than homegrown carrots straight from the garden! Not only are they so photogenic and vibrantly coloured (once they are washed of course), they are also so fresh and nutritious! These beauties are straight from the garden, and a little wonky from stony soil, but still way tastier than shop bought! I thought I'd whip up a batch of Carrot Cake Muffins, but with a slight healthy twist. The are really filling so would be great for a snack and would satisfy a sweet craving! 

They are even more indulgent and delicious with the cream frosting.

Deliciously Simple Smoothie

I know lots of us are feeling a bit run down recently, and a boost of vitamins and minerals is just what we need!! After getting some frozen raspberries and cherries in Aldi, along with some kale, I thought I would throw together this simple little recipe for a super nutritious smoothie! It is such a vibrant colour, so sweet and should fill you full of energy. It's a great snack for anyone trying to get on the right track after an indulgent December.

New Year!

Wednesday, 13 January 2016

It's now 13 days into the new year, and unlike other years I have taken a little longer to decide on my goals for this year. I didn't want to just pick a few ideas off the top of my head and almost immediately fall off the bandwagon. My unwritten goal of the year is to become more organised, hence why I bought myself a brand spanking new diary, for only 4 euro in Tesco. I just thought it was the sweetest little diary, and the perfect size for a handbag, so it can come everywhere with me!
