THE REAL IMPACT OF JUNK FOOD

As part of a series of talks, I’ve been speaking to the lovely members of Soho House. Whenever I go with friends or to present, I think about what a wonderful and beautiful space to spend time in.  The casual-y-hipster vibe certainly reminds me of why I love London.  Some of my past workshops have…

How and Why to Give Tofu a Try!

I’ve had some insanely busy past few weeks but I always enjoy preparing delicious and easy Buddha bowls – this time it’s with Tofu!   Many people don’t like tofu mainly because tofu on its own has little to no taste.

I’ve been so excited to see all the autumn vegetables and fruits!

Sweetened drinks are the single largest source of sugar in children and teenagers, one of the largest in adults,…

A brunch friendly warm salad…

I recently went for brunch at one of our local pubs with my family. Looking at the menu, I immediately gravitated towards the classics – fluffy scrambled eggs with chilli lime avocado toast or with smoked salmon toast (even though the toasts are daily regulars on our M&F menu). Torn between the two, I had to…

Stronger together, not alone

I have been helped by so many amazing people to get Maple & Fitz to where it is today. The advice and support I have had from my mentors is invaluable so when I was asked to be a part of the Mentor MatcHER campaign, supported by the UK Minister for Women and Equalities, I…

Loving Lululemon

In case you hadn’t already noticed, sportswear is having a moment. Gone are the days where gym kit consisted of your ex’s baggy T-shirt and that pair of faded tracksuit bottoms you also wear to do the housework in. Both luxury and high street brands like Lululemon (a favourite of ours here at Maple &…
