An Update on Blogging…

Don’t worry – I’m still here!

I know my blogging schedule has not been the best recently – it’s always the last minute stress of exams that seem to crawl over me and suddenly bam, haven’t blogged for what feels like a year!

But it’s not that I don’t want to blog, I really, really do! I’ve also been working a lot on my Youtube channel recently, doing little vlogs and other videos.

But now, I’m planning on doing something very exciting and also kind of scary, but a good kind of scary.  I’m going to expand my blog to also doing lifestyle posts.

Now don’t you worry, I’m not going to sit here babbling on about my new favourite lash extending super serum mascara, but just maybe once or twice a week I’ll also put up a post on an interesting exhibition or event I’ve been to.

I mean, this is all new to me so I’m absolutely no expert but I enjoy reading lifestyle blogs and for any of you that travel to London, maybe this will give you a nice idea of something to do, like maybe a gallery to visit?

And I will still be doing a recipe once a week and most of the time, a video to go along with that too but in addition to that I’ll also be blogging about something else too (and of course you have no obligation to read it, but it will be fun – join the parday!)

PLUS, I’ve got a super exciting holiday coming up and it will be so much fun to bring you guys with me and give you an insight!

Ok, so that’s pretty much it, let me know what you think!

Have a great day and I’ll see you soon!

Review: C Press Juice

Review: C Press Juice | Add A Little

I love a good fresh juice, especially in the summer, and I actually LOVE vegetable juices (yes I’m aware that that’s weird!)but I find it so hard to find vegetable or green juices that aren’t 99% apple! C Press is a  juice bar that specialises in cold pressed juices – this means they are not pasteurised and a million times better for you because the nutrients are still kept in (most shop bought brands tend to be pasteurised and also full of sugar – boo!)

They are also organic and certified by the Soil Association so you know that all the ingredients are going to be of the best quality!

I got a takeaway but the interior is quite small but simple and I love the wooden walls.

First up is the Green Angel juice (£8.50) and I must say I felt like one of Charlie’s Angel’s after this! This was the most hardcore juice – filled with greens, no fruit and chlorella – an algae rich in antioxidants. I’m a major green juice fan but I’m not a big fan of chlorella! Luckily, this didn’t taste too strongly of chlorella so I didn’t mind it but I preferred the green juice without the extra superfood bonus!

Farmer’s market (£6.50) was one of my favourites – it’s fully green but I love that and I love how the slight sweetness and freshness of the vegetables come through, as well as the warm and sweet ginger! It’s also milder than some green juice due to the higher amount of romaine which is a nice sweet leaf!

For a first time green juicer, I would recommend Farmer’s Market with Apple (£6.50)! It’s got all the benefits of a green juice but with added sweetness so it’s not too hard to drink! This was delicious too and it wasn’t overly apple-y and you could still taste the fresh herbs and greens!

If anyone’s looking for a sweet juice, the Prime Number (£6.50) is the one for you! My friend tried it and absolutely adored it – the sweetness of the fruit really comes through, especially the orange and pineapple and almost tastes like you’re eating a candy so this is perfect if you get the 4 o’clock slump and craving something on the sweet side! Also, the colour of this is phenomenal – so vibrant!

This Charged Up (£6.50) juice was also great for those looking for a sweeter juice, but it’s not too sweet! Obviously, the sweetness of the pineapple and orange came through but the turmeric gave a really lovely depth of flavour which I really enjoyed (and it’s great for the anti inflammatory benefits)!

Now onto the food! I’m always on the look out for new places to get a healthy lunch and this was delicious! I got a salad called Spring Greens (£5.75) that was filled with good stuff! There was a sweet potato and quinoa falalfel which is right up my street because sweet potato! It’s got a very soft texture because it’s obviously not fried but I really liked this because it went well with the salad! The salad itself was a whole bunch of greens like kale, peppery rocket, broccoli, quinoa, pumpkin seeds, avocado and goji berries that came with the most amazing dressing (definitely recreating this!) – I could literally drink this stuff because it was so creamy and rich! It’s a miso cashew dressing that brought the whole salad together – absolute perfection! I would definitely get this again!

I also got a side of kale chips (£3.75) which are always good! This was the original cheezy flavour that were lovely and crisp and I really liked the addition of pepper which give a slight heat! Very addictive!

C Press is a great place to go, whether you are looking for a healthy lunch (everything is vegan and gluten free), quick snack or a plethora or jucies, smoothies and nut mylks!

I can just imagine myself sitting outside having an alfresco meal with lots of salads like this and ripe tomatoes and basil because if that’s not the epitome of summer I don’t even know what is!

Cauliflower Rice & Grilled Vegetable Salad | Add A Little

Cauliflower Rice & Grilled Vegetable Salad vegan, gluten free, dairy free
Serves 2

This is the perfect summer meal as it’s so light and easy to make yet so full of flavour and works with any vegetable to your taste, I also love adding grilled aubergine to this! It’s also even more delicious if you add dried fruit like raisins or apricots to add texture and sweetness!

1 zucchini, sliced lengthways
10 spears of asparagus, sliced in half
Handful of steamed green beans or peas
Extra virgin olive oil
Salt and pepper, to taste
Handful of raisins
Coriander, to garnish (parsley would also work)
1/2 lemon, zest and juice
Apple cider vinegar
Cauliflower rice, to serve (I keep it raw but you can sauté it)

Make your cauliflower rice and set aside.

Heat a grill pan or you can use a George Foreman grill.

Add oil to the grill and add the zucchini and season with salt and pepper.

Let it cook untouched for about a minute and when the grill marks show, flip it over.

Do the same for al the zucchini and the asaragus and once cooked, set aside.

Plate your bed of cauliflower rice and drizzle with extra virgin olive oil, apple cider vinegar and salt.

Top with grilled vegetables, sprinkle of beans or peas, lots of coriander and raisins.

Serve with lemon wedges on the side.
