iHerb Haul

I actually love this website, I must admit shipping fees to the UK are so expensive but the items are still worth it I suppose. So my items are quite random ranging from treats, skincare and snacks.

These are now one of my favourite boiled sweets!! There’s 4 different fruity flavours £1.62

This hot chocolate tasted so good but was a little sweet for me £1.62

These eye masks are nice and relaxing, slightly reducing puffy eyes but they don’t get rid of dark circles £1.55

Subtle sweet fruity taste £1.93

I didn’t enjoy these as much as I do normal sour worms, but I still ate them £1.69

These cheese puffs are so different to cheese puffs in the UK but they taste so so delicious 😋 £1.96

£4.09

Chocolate 🍫 

Hello again, hope you are all well 😊

Firstly, cocoa is not the same as cacao, cacao is the bean which comes from the Theobrona tree.

When we think of chocolate we think of cocoa which comes from cacao beans after they’ve been processed or roasted changing the quality and more importantly nutrient content, diminishing some health benefits. 

Flavanols (contain health benefits) are found in chocolate and usually removed by manufactures because of the strong bitter taste, therefore processed sugars and fillers are added to ‘improve’ the taste. 

Cacao is grown in many warmer climate countries around the world including Africa, when choosing your chocolate once in a while opt for fair-trade or organic bars and support the farmers.

Healthy Pasta Salad

Hi guys, I’ve recently been working on healthy, nutritious meals which are also fillings and the first one is a pasta salad, I know the ingredients are quite random but I promise it tastes delicious 😋 
Serves 1

Ingredients 
75g wholemeal pasta
1 small sweet potato peeled and cut into cubes
5 Brussels sprouts cut in half
1 small carrot grated
1 spring onion sliced
1/2 yellow pepper sliced
3 tbsp oil
20g ricotta cheese

Method

1. Prepare the vegetables first then put on a pan of water for the pasta. In a bowl mix the sprouts, potato and yellow peppers with 3 tbsp of oil and a pinch of salt and pepper. Next, place on a tray and bake in the oven for 20 minutes until soft.

2. Once the pan starts to boil, cook the pasta then drain off the liquid and place in a bowl, mix in the carrot and spring onion.

3. Take the tray from the oven and add to the pasta mixture, gently stirring.

4. Lastly sprinkle on the ricotta cheese and enjoy!!

I know there isn’t any sauce with this but it honestly tastes great alone, the sweet potato and brussel sprouts really complement each other and overall the dish is a WINNER!! I love how basic but tasty this meal is and the ingredients are minimal. It’s easy to prepare and you can just double the ingredients if you are cooking for more people.

Let me know if you try this recipe ☺

Dark Jamaican Ginger Cake

Hey guys, Jamaican ginger cake is one of my favourite cakes aside from chocolate 😋 I found this recipe online and I just had to bake it and share it with you guys. There’s a lot of sugar in the recipe from the soft dark sugar, golden syrup and treacle but it doesn’t taste overly sweet. It was also really runny so I did wonder how the gingerbread would turn out and here is the result…

Makes: 1 loaf tin

Ingredients 

175g plain flour, sifted
1 tbsp ground ginger
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp grated nutmeg
1/2 tsp bicarbonate soda
2 tbsp milk or milk alternative
75g black treacle
75g golden syrup
75g dark brown soft sugar
75g butter
1 egg

Method

1. Preheat the oven to gas mark 4 and line a loaf tin with parchment paper.

2. In a large bowl mix, sift the flour and spices then separately mix the bicarbonate soda with milk and set aside.

3. Then, into a saucepan measure the treacle, syrup, sugar and butter with 75ml of water. Heat gently until everything is thoroughly melted. 

4. Next add the syrup mixture to the flour and stir vigorously with a wooden spoon until smooth. Beat in the egg and add the bicarbonate soda and milk. 

5. Mix well and pour into the prepared baking tin, place in the oven and bake for 1 hour. Remove from the oven and leave to cool for 10 minutes before taking out.
