Favourite recipe inspiration...



Eating the  same foods day in, day out gets a little boring. Therefore, I am always on the hunt for new ideas particularly for work lunches as I like to have something fun to look forward to.

Some of my current favourite inspirations are as follows:

Crumb - Ruby Tandoh:

Crumb is perhaps the best baking book that I own: inventive and full of yummy treats. This is one that I refer to particularly if I'm looking to make a yummy treat for my work colleagues. You can find my full review on the book here 

Deliciously Ella/Deliciously Ella Every Day:

I am a massive fan of Ella and I really wished that I lived much closer to visit the Mae Deli. Full of healthy recipes that all your family can enjoy, Ella has made people connect with eating healthily again. Out of the two books, I prefer the 2nd one (Deliciously Ella Every Day) as I find that the recipes are much more accessible and more to my personal taste.

Hemsley Hemsley:

The Hemsley sisters book that I have is packed full with delicious, healthy recipes but they do seem to require a lot of ingredients. Amount of ingredients aside, the recipes are very tasty and there are a huge variety to pick from. I particularly like the Feta and Black Bean Burgers and someone I know swears by the bone broth. The Hemsley sisters actually have another book out which I have not yet picked up but it looks amazing! On a side note, they have a tv show and the final two episodes are still on 4OD if you want to catch-up. It's a must-see!


This book literally has all bases covered: from Sunday lunches to picnics and to work lunches. Admittedly, I haven't made anything from this one yet but I have bookmarked a lot to try. Up on my current list are: Puy Lentil, Brown Rice & Sweet Potato Salad; Peach & Butternut Salad and Rainbow Salad  with Roasted Vegetables.
