Smoked Haddock and Sweet Potato Pie

So again I haven't blogged in a while but here we go anyway :)
I have made this dish a few times now and have fallen in love with it!
And its super super easy to make!
It's also not super expensive to make so great for students or for those trying not to spend to much.
This recipe is NOT my own and you can probably find similar on the internet but I wanted to post this anyway!
As I said in my last blog post I have started eating healthier and reading blogs have been a great inspiration and Instagram has also been extremely helpful!
So let's get into it before I bore you all :/
(Heres a cheeky picture from IG I love serving mine with steamed Kale or Savoy Cabbage)
- 1kg of sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into small cubes
- 120g of Philadelphia chives (light!)
- 300g undyed smoked haddock 
-  300g Haddock Loin
(to make this a cheaper meal I have used a frozen fish pie mix from Asda which costs about £3)
- 2 tbsp Almond Milk ~ (you can use any milk you like)
(You can use normal potatoes if you like but sweet potatoes have a lot more health benefits - if you want to read more on this check out this article which was brilliant and showing this)
This dish serves 4 people if your a student I would recommend what I do and have this for a meal for 2 days and freeze the rest for another time!
-Preheat the oven to 190, gas mark 5
-In a large saucepan cover the potatoes with water bring to the boil and cook for approximately 10 minutes or until soft 
(I often cook for a little bit longer to make the mashing easier!)
- Next drain well and mash with 20g of Philly and set aside
(If I have plain light Philly in the fridge then I will use this instead of the chives one)
-Now place the fish in a microwaveable dish with a teaspoon of the milk cover and microwave on high for approximately 5 minutes until just cooked
- Remove any skin and bones, then flake the fish in a large ovenproof dish
-Now combine the remaining Light Chive Philly and milk in a mug and then spoon this over the fish
-Next top with the mashed sweet potato 
-Bake for 20 minutes until the Philly sauce is bubbling around the edge of the dish and the potato is browned.
NOW you can dig in :D
Wasn't that easy?
And guess what!:
Per Serving - 390 Kcal,  34.3g Protein and 5.4g of fat!
I love love love this dish!
 And when I cooked it at home with my mum she loved it too!
This dish is super filling keeping huger pangs at bay and tastes super lush!!
If you have any questions or queries don't hesitate to ask!

Over Night Oats Recipe!!

Okay so I haven't blogged in a long long long time, 
I have recently returned to University and found it difficult to juggle my time!
But I have promised to myself that I will try to find some time to blog at least once a week!
Which for me is a lot!!
I may even blog more but I don't want to promise too much!! :P 

Today I thought I would introduce a very different type of blog post,
this is purely because I have started eating healthier and I have been helping my mum with it too,
When putting up pictures on Instagram, twitter, and Facebook I have been asked many questions about the food I have been eating
So I thought the best way to show everyone was writing it up on my blog

So the first thing I have introduced into my diet is this!
Over Night Oats!!

I absolutely love this for breakfast!!
 I have to admit that I used to be awful and not eat breakfast at all! 
I would try to eat something but would quickly get bored of it and give up and not eat anything :/

However after trying this beaut I would be looking forward to breakfast the next day!!
So here's how to make them::

Ingredients for 1 portion:

1/2 Cup of oats 
1/2 Cup of 0% fat Yogurt (I like to use vanilla flavored)
1/2 Cup of Almond Milk 
Teaspoon of Unsweetened Cocoa 
Teaspoon or a tablespoon of Sweetener (to taste so it depends how sweet you like it)
+ I add a teaspoon of oat bran but this isn't necessary


I add all the ingredients into a beaker because you have to store it in your fridge overnight,  also when putting into a beaker this means that if I run out of time in the morning I can just grab this out of the fridge and take it on the go.

Anyway I start by measuring out the oats then the yogurt then the milk adding them all to the beaker I then mix this all up. I then add the coca mix in and then add the sweetener, lastly adding the oat bran then mixing it all up.
As I have this all in a beaker, at the end I put the lid on and just give it a brisk shake,
now just simply place it in the fridge over night.

The affect of putting this in the fridge over night thickens up the whole mixture which makes it super filling and tastes amazing!

I love topping mine with raspberries!
  (I like to buy a big punnet of frozen ones and just un-freeze a couple over night each time I make the overnight oats just before bed.)
You can use anything you like to top your oats! 
I know alot of people like to add a dollop of peanut butter on theirs.
(if your being healthy though just check out the ingredients of your peanut butter)

-Also I would like to add if I don't use vanilla flavored yogurt then I do use a plain 0% yogurt then I just add a teaspoon of vanilla essence/extract to the whole mixture at the end and mix in - 

I hope that people will find this helpful and will hopefully help to influence and prove to people that healthy eating isn't all that boring and can be truly delicious!!

Thanks for reading!
Hope to be posting again soon :)
