My Dad makes an amazing chilli con carne, and whilst I still do eat meat from time to time, lately I’ve been eating less of it.  I’ve recreated this vegetarian chilli loosely based on my Dad’s chilli con carne recipe and it has proved to be successful, even when given to meat eaters!

As the weather has suddenly turned colder this week I decided to make another batch of this and remembered how tasty it is so I knew I had to share the recipe with you all.

Most mornings I have a smoothie after working out when I need something quick before I head out the door.  However, on days when I have a bit more time I love a smoothie bowl.

Cauliflower ‘Rice’

Everywhere you look these days people are talking about cauliflower ‘rice’.  I’ve been making it for a while now so thought I’d share the recipe.

People probably wonder why not just use rice?  Whilst most people can tolerate rice there are others who can’t seem to digest rice too well and this makes a nice alternative and it is so easy to make which always helps!
