I hope everyone’s had a good start to the week!
It’s nearly Super Bowl which means SNACK. If you want to find me, you know I’ll be around the snack table 😉
These are a super easy and healthy snack to put together – you can make the tuna in advance and just serve it in chicory cups (butter lettuce would also be delicious) before serving!
Tuna Salad in Chicory Cups dairy free, gluten free
This is a perfect light recipe for a light lunch or snack – the tahini gives it a delicious creaminess whilst the lemon juice and zest lifts the whole dish! Perfect with celery and red peppers too!
1 can tuna in olive oil
Handful of plum tomatoes
1/4 cucumber, finely chopped
2 spring onions, finely chopped
Chicory, to serve
optional: peppers, courgette, coriander or parsley
Mix the tuna salad ingredients with the tahini dressing.
Serve immediately in chicory cups.
For the dressing
1 tbsp tahini
3 tbsp water
1 tbsp lemon juice
salt and pepper, to taste
Extra virgin olive oil (optional)
Stir the tahini with the water and lemon juice until smooth and creamy.
It may separate at first but keep whisking and it will become smooth!
I am a snackaholic.
Seriously I can’t stop!
You may have seen my previous roasted chickpeas post but I thought I’d reshoot the photos and I’ve seriously been eating them every.single.day. Like a whole can. It’s kind of embarrassing but they are just so good! Seriously, once you try them, they’ll be your new go to snack: easy, tasty and super addictive. YES.
I’ve also got a tutorial video here if you want to check it out! 🙂

Massage oil, salt and other seasoning into chickpeas.
I hope everyone’s had a lovely start to 2015 – I’ve got to say mine’s getting progressively getting better! The start of the year was a bit rocky, but sometimes it’s ok to not be ok – sometimes you have to have a bad day to have a good day, but just remember it all gets better! Trust me.
Ooookk that escalated quickly! Didn’t mean to get all deep up in here!
Moving on, this technically isn’t a juice per say, but it’s a thin smoothie, so ya know, same difference!
It’s super refreshing and light and as usual, feel free to add any more fruit if you want it sweeter, I’m sure oranges would be amazing in this!
Green Juice vegan, gluten free, dairy free
The perfect drink to have in the morning along side your breakfast or to have as a snack to hydrate yourself. You can of course make it into a more smoothie consistency by adding yoghurt, banana or milk.
2 handfuls of spianch
Handful of mango
1/2 cup water, or apple juice
Squeeze of lemon
Add all ingredients to blender and blend until smooth.
