New Years Carb-Free Cauliflower Pizza

Happy 2016 everyone!

New Year, New Me, New You!

New Years usually means resolutions and obviously the most common one of all is to ‘Get fit and eat healthy’. But how can we do that when there’s so much food, which isn’t necessarily good for you, all around us, like…PIZZA!

Everyone loves, pizza. You’ll be hardpressed to find someone who says they don’t like pizza. However, we also know it’s unhealthy as s**t! So, if you care about your diet but still want pizza, substitute it instead with “Cauliflower Pizza”!

Gluten free, carb free, great for vegetarians and still hella tasty! Oh and did I mention it’s incredibly cheap to make as well? Check out my recipe and give it a go! Enjoy!

Baaaaccooonnn and Chinese Radish Soup

Everyone loves bacon, who doesn’t? But sometimes frying it and grilling it can get boring and I’m ashamed to say, it is quite unhealthy. So why not do something different with it and instead make it into a soup.

This dish is incredibly easy to make, tastes amazing (because there’s bacon in it…duh) and most of all it’s actually quite a healthy dish cos we don’t use stock or anything else really. Just 100% natural ingredients.

Barackoli Obama Soup…well Broccoli really :D

I highly doubt any of us students ever get our daily dose of greens inside us. All we do is guzzle down meat by the dozen washed down with lashings of beer. But vege isn’t as daunting as it looks and you can make something we all find boring (inc me ;D) into something tasty.

Broccoli soup is packed with nutrients, actually a lot tastier than it sounds and it’s ruddy simple to make as well.
