Black Beans Burger

Spicy black bean burger recipeI have always had an obsession with black beans and now it’s a full blown love affair with this spicy black bean burger recipe! I really suffer with acne and as a 31 year old it’s pretty devastating that my skin is still behaving like a teenagers, so I was doing some research and a few things that came up was that it might be a good idea to cut back on red meat to improve hormonal acne. I am a huge fan of meat especially beef and was pretty worried about giving up or cutting back on beef burgers, but with this spicy black bean burger recipe I can assure you that I certainly have nothing to worry about and I can hand on heart say that I would choose this every time! Black beans are sooooo nice! They have a whole load of health benefits too; black beans are high in protein and fibre so are a great option for vegetarians needing alternative sources of protein, they’re loaded with iron, phosphorous, calcium, magnesium, manganese, copper and zinc which will help to build and maintain healthy bones. Black beans are also naturally low in sodium so they help to lower blood pressure. And finally black beans as a high fibre food will increase satiety and reduce appetite, which will help you to feel fuller for longer so you won’t be reaching for the cookie jar!

Avocado Pancake

avocado pancakeIf you’ve not tried an avocado pancake you have no idea what you’re missing out on! This avocado pancake recipe is quick, easy, healthy, clean eating, paleo, raw and delicious, if you ask me that ticks all of my boxes! If you need more reasons to eat avocado check out this post on all the health benefits.

So to make this avocado pancake breakfast all you need is half an avocado and 1 large egg. Ok so let’s do this! Scoop out half of an avocado and whisk or mash it up in a bowl until it is smooth. Then crack a large egg in to the avocado and mix in until it’s well combined. Heat a small frying pan and pop a small amount of olive oil or coconut oil into the pan, once it’s hot pour in your avocado mixture and roll in the pan to let it spread. As with normal pancakes use a spatula to test the edges and smooth out the mixture and wait for the avocado pancake to start bubbling holes in the top, then flip it and cook on the other side for another 30 seconds to 1 minute until your happy it’s cooked through.

Once your avocado pancake is cooked, pop it on a plate, spoon on some greek yoghurt and sprinkle on some cinnamon and a dash of maple syrup and oh boy you’ve got yourself THE most delicious avocado pancake breakfast you will ever taste!

You can try this with other ingredients too: use 1 banana a 2 eggs, or 1 small sweet potato and 2 eggs. Whichever tingles your tastebuds and it’s so healthy!!!

Chilli

chilliOne of my favourite “stodge” recipes is a chilli, it makes me feel like I’m being naughty and eating something as treat but it’s actually super healthy and the chilli gives a nice fiery kick of heat to warm your cockles! This chilli recipe is quite simply a variation of my previous chilli recipe but with one amazing difference!! Whilst you are cooking the chilli, bake a potato. For best results, pre-heat your oven to 200C, prick your potato all over drizzle with olive oil, himalayan salt and a twist of pepper, then pop in the microwave for 5 minutes, turn and cook for a further 5 minutes and then pop it in the oven to crisp up the skin for 20 minutes. (make it paleo by using a sweet potato)

crockpot chilliNow, back to the chilli! Make sure you cook this exactly the same as my chilli recipe and let the sauce thicken. You can cook this quickly on the hob it doesn’t have to be done in the crockpot. Then once the potato has cooked, split in half and scoop out the flesh and pop in a bowl and mash it up so it’s really smooth. If you want to make it really creamy add a little bit of mashed avocado to it :). Then take your little potato boat and put it on a baking tray lined with parchment paper, then scoop some chilli and put it inside the potato (careful not to overload it!) and then repeat this for the other half of the potato. Finally using a fork or spoon put your mashed potato back on top of the chilli mixture inside your potato. sprinkle a smidge of cheese on it you like and then pop it back in the oven or under a grill to crisp up the potato mixture on top of the chilli, serve garnished with fresh coriander.

So what’s so great about this chilli recipe? Firstly you’re getting a really good mix of fats, proteins and carbs, and secondly by putting your chilli mixture into your potato it’s really helping you to manage your portion control! Double whammy!

Try it out for yourself! I promise you there is no other chilli recipe quite like it!

Salsa Recipe

Salsa recipeSo after a camping trip with some of my paleo buddies a friend of mine made the MOST delicious salsa and I’ve taken her recipe and tweaked it a bit to make my own salsa recipe! This salsa recipe is amazing because it goes really well with fajitas or with salad on it’s own, or with hummus and pitta bread. Honestly the possibilities are endless! So without further ado here are the recipes and method for my homemade salsa recipe (warning; it’s garlicy!)

Ingredients:

  • 1 red pepper finely diced
  • 2 tomatoes deseeded and finely diced
  • 4 cloves of garlic finely diced
  • 2 spring onions finely diced
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • A handful of fresh chopped coriander

Method:

  1. Chop all of the ingredients and mix together (yep it’s that simple!)

Pop in an airtight container and pop your delicious salsa in the fridge ready for consumption! If you want to add more colour and make your own salsa recipe why not add some green peppers into the mix as well? It’s also really nice if you squeeze some lime over the top to give a zesty flavour and make your salsa recipe fit your own tastebuds!

Love Roo xx

Festival Style

What’s your festival style? So my work has decided to have a summer conference and we are all going glamping in Glastonbury and I have to get my festival style nailed! Knowing what my festival style isn’t the issue what I’m struggling to contend with is this miserable British weather we’re having! Yesterday was a glorious summers day reaching around 27ºC, however today as I am writing this post we’ve had non stop rain and I’m hunkered down on the sofa wearing a hoody and wrapped in a blanket like it’s a cold winters day! Seriously?! It’s ridiculous! So bearing in mind that my glamping festival trip will only last 3 days and 2 nights I am having to pack a capsule wardrobe to cover my festival style for every eventuality!

So here’s how I have turned 3 pairs of shoes, 2 tops, 1 shirt, 2 dresses, 1 pair of shorts and 1 cardigan and 1 pair of jeans in to countless outfits to suit any type of weather.
