Many apologies for the lack of recipe posts…you’ve probably thought I’d abandoned the blog! Fear not, I am still here but have just been exceptionally busy finishing off my course with the Institute of Integrative Nutrition, I am now officially graduated and setting up my Health Coaching business. To learn more about what I am doing head over to my website http://www.rebeccapricehealthcoach.com – and if you have any questions please feel free to message me or leave a comment.
Now, back to the recipe…
Everywhere you look these days there are lots of variations of protein bars and nut bars. Some are great to grab when out and about but some are just filled with nasties, I decided to make my own version and I can honestly say there’ll be no more store bought bars in my house!
I played around with this recipe and my Dad volunteered to be the taste tester – which actually surprised me as he’s a bit wary about some of my concoctions! Anyway this recipe has his seal of approval, so I thought if he loves it then it is definitely a recipe to share with you all! Continue reading
The other day I noticed I had some blueberries which needed using up and thought I would attempt to bake something. I say attempt as whenever I bake something 9 times out of 10 I have a disaster! However, this time I was pleasantly surprised that these cupcakes turned out great.
Happy New Year!!
I know I’m a bit late and I apologise for lack of blog posts but I have been super busy over the festive period in addition to college work and working on my business. For those of you who don’t know, I’m training to be a Holistic Health Coach with the Institute of Integrative Nutrition in New York. I’ve only a couple of months left before I graduate but I can start seeing clients now.

This post is going to be short but sweet (sweet because of the fudge…get it!) This fudge literally takes no time to prepare but you do have to wait patiently whilst it sets in the freezer.
I think chocolate and orange is one of the best flavour combinations and it works well in this fudge, but it does make it very more-ish..you have been warned!
I hope you all have a lovely Christmas with your friends and family and I’d like to thank you all for continuing to support me and my recipes!
-1/2 cup almond butter
-1/2 cup coconut oil
-3 Tbsp. cacao powder
-3 Tbsp. maple syrup
-1/4 cup cacao nibs
-zest of 1 orange, finely grated
-juice of half an orange (approx. 3 Tbsp.)
-pinch of salt
How To Make
Line a small dish with lightly oiled clingfilm or foil (I use coconut oil) set dish to one side.
Put the coconut oil and almond butter in a pan over a medium heat and melt gently, stirring often.
When the mixture has melted, add the remaining ingredients and stir well. Pour mixture into the prepared dish.
Place a lid on the dish or cover well with foil and place in the freezer to set.
Once fudge has set, remove from the freezer and cut in to small pieces.
Serve straight from the freezer.
The fudge stores well in an airtight container in the freezer.
The Christmas tree and decorations are up and it is beginning to feel very festive around here just now. I’ve completed my present shopping but still need to wrap the gifts. Every year I think I enjoy wrapping lots of presents in one go but then once I start, I actually begin to remember how much I don’t enjoy it! Especially when you have gifts which are oddly shaped, maybe I am just not patient enough but I can declare I am not a fan of wrapping presents.
The other day I made myself a fresh juice which I haven’t done for a while now and decided to warm the juice up slightly as it was such a cold day. I love having a warmed juice and I then decided that I’d try the recipe again but this time I’d add some spices and see if that worked well and it does!
Sprouts are a bit like Marmite; either you love them or hate them. I personally love them just as long as they haven’t been boiled forever which makes them soggy…then I hate them! My favourite way to cook sprouts is to roast them or finely shred them for a salad or coleslaw.
