Mediterranean Vegetable Rice Halloumi Bake

Mediterranean Vegetable, Halloumi and Rice Bake | Recipes

Hi guys! I’ve been really struggling to think of good lifestyle posts in lockdown because everything I would usually write about seems so irrelevant. I was chatting to my dad on Father’s Day and he mentioned a meal he’d had recently that I thought I might enjoy. We looked for the original recipe but we couldn’t find it, so in the end I made up my own version of it. This is a super customisable recipe: all the vegetables are swappable, and so is the seasoning, so you can tailor it to your tastes, but this was what I did to make my version. It’s so simple and easy to do, so this is going to be a pretty short blog post, but no shame in that! Let me know if you try this, or if you’ve made a similar version of it before! I didn’t realise it was even possible to cook rice in the oven before I made this, but it was super easy and delicious.

Recipes I’m Loving!

I was really struggling to think of a topic for this post! I’m doing so little in lockdown that I’m starting to wonder what a lifestyle even is! I’ve got my Baby Steps series, but I still don’t feel like now is the time for product reviews, so I didn’t want to go down that route, and I’ve not been able to make many other changes I could talk about in lockdown. The Couch to 5k series is helping me with some inspiration for my lifestyle posts, but I didn’t want to make that a weekly feature! But then I thought what I have been doing in lockdown is baking and cooking! I thought I’d share some of my favourite recipes that I’ve been practising in lockdown.

Baby Steps Lent Goals Revisited

Lent Goals Revisited | BABY STEPS

Well, a lot has happened since my last post in the Baby Steps series. I’m not really continuing it at the moment because when people are very limited to what they can buy, and are having to buy whatever they can find, I don’t think encouraging sustainable choices is a very helpful option. Of course, if you’re able to still make the more sustainable choice I would advocate for taking it, but equally, when the supermarkets are carrying much smaller selections, and availability generally has decreased, it can’t be a priority. Having said that, I did want to do a follow up to my last post, my Lent Goals post, as Easter has now happened.Read More »

Baby Steps Lent Goals

Lent Goals | BABY STEPS

CW: food, diet.

Welcome back to my Baby Steps series! Today, I’m going to be talking about what I’m doing for Lent to try to be more sustainable. I know Lent is already underway, but I took a bit of a break while I got caught up on university work. Still, I’m back now, and we’re only a few days into Lent. If you want to check out my broader goals for the year, you can find my most recent post in the series here.Read More »
