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 readingΒ 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…)

SWEET POTATO FRIES

I’m a bit obsessed with sweet potato fries at the moment. Baked on a high heat and swiped with a layer of coconut oil, they will be just as crunchy and delicious as if they were deep fried…and WAY more healthy!!

All you need to do is wash your sweet potato and slice it into your desired fries size (more…)

EASY, PALEO MEATBALLS

I love to play around and ‘secretly’ add some veggies into well, everything!! This yummy meatball mixture are literally half vegetables so they are a perfect way to add in some extra serves of vitamins (especially for the kids or partner that rolls their eyes at the look of anything healthy haha!) Super easy, super quick, organic, healthy and WAY more than enough to meal prep for every lunch this week! (more…)

ADAPTOGENS

What are adaptogens? Why are they important? How can we incorporate more herbs and spices in our lives to benefit our bodies?

These days, life can be ‘hard’ and stressful. You may not feel stressed, but is your body telling you otherwise? Are you abnormally snappy, cranky or emotional? Do you suffer from headaches? Do you have skin rashes or itchyness? (more…)

PINEAPPLE SALSA

The weather is heeeeating up over here in Australia! Time for a healthy and Summery take on the tomato salsa classic…perfect as a dip, tossed through baby spinach leaves for a nice salad or added as a side to chicken wraps!

 

INGREDIENTS
500g pineapple (you can use fresh if in season, or canned…but make sure you look for the canned variety in juice NOT syrup!) (more…)

SUPERFOOD VEGAN PESTO

So one is the things I miss the most about being dairy free is pesto sauce and dip (apart from missing chocolate too!)
I found a few different recipes for pestos, so I played around with ingredients and made my own! Packed with broccoli and spinach for lots of magnesium, protein, vitamins, zinc and calcium plus yummy parsley and basil. (more…)

LEMON CHICKEN ‘WRAPS’

I’ve been trying to mix up my lunches at work so I don’t get bored and spend way too much money on over-priced and over-processed salads. I used to love wraps before I found out I was gluten intolerant and I really haven’t found a gluten-free wrap brand that I like that’s not too processed and doesn’t have too much added sugar, so I’ve been substituting with cos-lettuce leaves! Yum! (And no carbs!) (more…)
