TOP 5 TIPS FOR RECOVERING FROM A BINGE

Hellooooooo Christmas! (wtf how is 2017 nearly over!!?)
And also a hello to lots of food, lots of drinks and LOTS of fun spent with friends & family!
Now, lets just all take a moment to appreciate all of the delicious food we have eaten over the past few days (or weeks if ya know what I mean…Christmas parties, lunches etc). One of my biggest achievements over the last 12 months has been improving my relationship with food so I want to jump right on in to my very first (and what I would consider most important of all) tip:

1 – APPRECIATE THE FOODS YOU HAVE EATEN. ENJOY THEM!

PIÑA COLADA VEGAN SMOOTHIE

Omg you guys this is actually amazing!! I’m getting a little bit sick of chocolate protein as I’ve had a bit of an overload the past few months, so this is a refreshing change away from the standard ‘berries, spinach and chocolate’ smoothies.
A delicious, protein and healthy fat packed smoothie perfect for breakfast or a snack!

INGREDIENTS:
4 tablespoons of dessicated coconut
Half a banana (more…)

VEGGIE-FILLED FAJITA BOWLS

You all know I’m obsessed with sneaking veggies into ANY meal that I can and these Fajita bowls are no different! You could even leave out the chicken and opt for a Vegan meal choice! Just add some extra mushrooms and maybe even some cabbage and eggplant instead! Super quick, super easy and super yummy! (more…)

DAIRY FREE, GLUTEN FREE CARBONARA PASTA

My version of a deeeelish carbonara pasta packed with protein from the chicken and quinoa pasta and also a wholeee sneaky bag of baby spinach (that I mix through and trick my boyfriend into eating hehehe)
Oh, and the best bit…it literally takes 15-20 mins depending on how quickly your pasta & chicken cooks!

INGREDIENTS:
Your desired serving of gluten free pasta (I use Orgran brand from Coles or your local Organic shop)
2 tablespoons coconut oil (more…)

CREAMY PROTEIN OVERNIGHT OATS

I love overnight oats! (the organic kind, obvi! Read more about why it’s SO important to eat organic grains here) they are so easy to get a good dose of nutritious carbs, healthy fats and protein for a nourishing meal!
I’m also going to be a little controversial and say I don’t reeeeeally eat overnight oats as a breakfast meal like most people do, but I will explain why & the effects on your body and hormones after the recipe, just in case there are people reading that just want the recipe already!

INGREDIENTS:
1/2 cup organic oats (I like Bills organic oats or Woolworths Macro oats)
3/4 cup coconut milk (I love coco-quench from Coles, but you can use any milk you like or even water!) (more…)

GRAINS – WHY IT’S IMPORTANT TO EAT ORGANIC

Ok, so this might be a little controversial & I know so many people roll their eyes when the health industry pushes eating organic produce…but I want to explain exactly WHY it’s important to eat organic – when you can. And ESPECIALLY with grains.

I’m sure we are all aware of the huge gluten free movement over the last few years. This has reared it’s head due to hundreds of thousands more people showing symptoms of intolerances just in the last 10 years. But why has this happened? (more…)

DOUBLE CHOCOLATE MUFFINS

An old recipe of mine that I have re-hashed to make gluten free & a little more clean

INGREDIENTS:
1 cup applesauce
1 teaspoon coconut oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract (more…)

IMMUNE BOOSTING CHICKEN & VEGETABLE SOUP

There’s a reason our parents, grandparents and great-grandparents would feed us a warm chicken soup when we were sick. Allllllll of those nutrients!

So, so many amazing immune boosting, anti-inflamitory properties of this soup…all which I will detail after the recipe, for those that don’t really care about all of the ‘nutrition’ side of things and just want the recipe!

BREAKFAST MUFFINS

My work/life balance has been WAY out of whack lately, so I’ve had to focus a lot on food prep on the weekends to make sure I’m making the best food choices I can, quickly, during the week!

I’m not normally one to promote packaged and processed foods, but I think Sarah Wilson’s I Quit Sugar range at  Coles and Woolworths does a pretty good job of cutting out preservatives and additives and it’s a really good option if you’re on the run.  (more…)
