PIÑA COLADA VEGAN SMOOTHIE

A delicious, protein and healthy fat packed smoothie perfect for breakfast or a snack!

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

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…)

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…)

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…)

BANANA CHOC MOUSSE 

 

Yummy and healthy!! I’m a sucker for chocolate so I’m always up for trying new mousse recipes! (My other coconut cream choc mousse is also delish!) this recipe is from Ashy Bines’ kittens in the kitchen YouTube episode and I’ve changed it up a little to add in some extra protein AND (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…)

GLOWING GREEN

I’ve stumbled across a few amazing Podcasts in the last 6 months. I’m really into Podcasts as I commute an hour to and from work every day, and I find it a really easy way to soak in some extra Health & Fitness knowledge without having to be in a class! Plus, I feel like I’m actually doing something interesting with my commute and using my brain!

One of my favourite newest additions is Kimberly Snyder’s Beauty Inside Out which I listen to through iTunes. (more…)
