    Jar Noodles

    This was a slightly experimental lunch but it turned out to be a success! Which is always a bonus. I love a Pot Noodle style thing but this is a great way of getting more vegetables in your system. Also, it’s more filling than a shop bought one as it contains actual protein! I have recently adapted this recipe as I wrote it pre-gluten free. I use dried Rice Noodles instead of egg ones and a gluten free alternative to soy sauce.

    Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

    Roasted Red Pepper Hummus was a little bit of an experiment. I love when my experiments go right though! I’ve never been much of a hummus fan but I decided to give this a go so I’ve got something a bit different for lunch. Now it’s got me thinking about summer picnics down the beach. This is the only way I will ever eat celery. I can’t stand it on it’s own usually! Shop bought hummus can be quite high in fat so this is a healthier alternative. Roasted Red Pepper Hummus is a little bit thicker but still tastes amazing. It also doesn’t take too long to make, as…

    Cherry Chocolate Cupcakes

    Everybody loves cake, I personally don’t think you will ever find an amazing replacement for the real thing unless you go for mini cakes but you can easily eat a whole packet in one sitting (well I can). I have found a filling replacement in the form of Scan Bran again. I have done a chocolate cake recipe before but this is slightly different and it makes 6 of these full size cupcakes. They are so filling that you won’t want to eat more than 1 or 2 in one go anyway!

    Curry Loaf

    Curry Loaf is by far one of the best things I make! Even if I do say so myself. It’s so simple, only uses a few ingredients and it makes enough to last all week. I have mine with salad for lunch or just on its own as a snack when I’m feeling peckish. To make this gluten free you have to check the ingredients. It’s mainly always the rice that you need to check. I used to use the cheapest possible one I could find. Unfortunately, they contain wheat so do be careful.

    Greggs Style Sausage & Bean Bake

    Greggs style Sausage & Bean Bake is a healthier version of a much loved classic! The dieting world has gone mad for “pasty’s” lately and they are bloody lovely so I can understand why!! The humble wrap has become a pastry replacement for slimmers across the country and while in town this morning, smelling the sausage rolls as I was walking past Greggs I wondered what other goodies I could try…. Of course! There’s no reason I can’t make a Greggs Style Sausage & Bean Bake! I have now gone gluten free so I now have even more reason to make things like this as I can’t eat Gregg’s. I…

    Banana Bars

    This isn’t my usual kind of recipe as it’s a baby led weaning one. Most of my recipes are child friendly and don’t contain any nasties but these literally contain 2 ingredients so are perfect for little fingers.

    Homemade Scotch Eggs

    These make a great lunchbox filler and are definitely one of my favourite lunches! Mr takes them to work and his colleagues always comment on how good they look. I try to keep the egg on the soft side as I love having a gooey middle! You can easily make these gluten free by using the right ingredients too.
