#DETOXJANUARY (Pineapple & Coconut Detox Drink)

If you’re still going strong this detox January or you’re looking to get back on track because you’ve slacked a little,this recipe is designed especially for you! Pineapple and coconut is one of my favourite juice combinations, the taste of these two beautiful fruits reminds me of being on a sun lounger, in a bikini and floppy hat overlooking the Caribbean sea, (A girl can dream! *sigh*) So anyway, this detox drink includes fresh pineapples mint, coconut water and sparkling water. I added mint and sparkling water because it gives the drink an extra kick to it, you’ll love it trust me! Read more for the recipe:

LOVE COMES IN ALL TYPES OF FORMS (HALLOUMI & OLIVE SALAD)

The type of love I’m talking about today comes in the form of a gorgeous salad. It always amazes me what great flavours you can create with the most simple of ingredients. I’m not really one to blow my own trumpet but this salad is GOOD! The tomatoes, halloumi and olives all combined into one is just stunning! I could eat this all day, everyday! You have to try this! Okay, I think I’ve done enough convincing now. Recipe Below: 

THE NEW HAPPY MEAL! (LOW-CARB BACON DOUBLE CHEESE BURGER)

Happy Monday beautiful people! Today I’ll be showing you all how to make a low carb bacon cheeseburger by dismissing a few ingredients that you’d usually find in a burger, like an actual burger bun!  I made this at home a few days ago and absolutely loved it, the flavours are stunning and the dish allows you to be full without feeling overly bloated like you’d usually get from bread. I swear I didn’t miss the bun at all! My family and friends were so shocked when they tried, it’s SO good! It’s also a great option if you’re trying to reduce the amount of bad carbohydrates you take in. So sit back, relax and enjoy this bacon cheese burger! Get the recipe here:

IN JACK WE TRUST! ( JACK DANIEL’S SMOKEY BBQ RIBS)

If you’ve ever been to T.G.I. Friday’s you’ll know they offer a delicious range of meats cooked in a Jack Daniel’s BBQ sauce (and yes it actually contains the authentic whiskey in it, how cool!). It’s very flavoursome with a slight sweetness to it, If you haven’t tried it, I promise you’ll love it! Today I’m going show you how to whip up the Jack Daniel’s Smokey BBQ Ribs. It’s so simple to make and 10x more cheaper than going out to eat it. So, dine with jack at home tonight with this recipe:

PERFECTLY PERFECT (FRENCH TOAST WITH STRAWBERRIES & CHOCOLATE)

I say,”Indulgence, always and in all ways”. Life’s short, so you’ve got to enjoy the sweeter things it has to offer like cakes, cookies and French toast! Now I’m not saying eat sugar all day and everyday (I don’t want you to get diabetes!).However eating a slice of cake, some fries or any indulgent meal every few days isn’t going to kill you. If you follow my Instagram (@BoyinAkinlade) you’ll learn I eat A LOT of not so healthy things, despite all this I still manage to have a flat stomach. You’ve just got to work out! Instead of taking the bus just walk sometimes,balance! I don’t know when I became a life coach!  Hahaha. So what I’m saying is sit back,relax and make yourself some French toast! Get the recipe:

WEIGHT WATCHING WINTER (BEEF & WALNUT SALAD DRIZZLED IN HONEY)

It’s officially that time of the year! The time where everyone trades the cookies and hot chocolate for salad and a green juice. As we all try to get into the spirit of things, I thought I’d help you all out a little with one of my yummy salad recipes. Salads never ever have to be boring, nor do they have to be cold. If like me you live in London (or most other parts of the world right now) it’s bloody cold! So the last thing you want to do is dip into a cold meal. That’s why this salad is warm, meaty and most importantly, filling! Get the recipe here:
