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…)

GREEN ESPRESSO SMOOTHIE BOWL

Smoothie bowls are available at every second cafe these days, so why not try making your own! This one is packed with nutrients from the bananas, spinach and chia seeds…but don’t forget that all fruit contains fructose which is still sugar, so enjoy your smoothie bowls but make sure you are adding (more…)

LEMON COCONUT MILKSHAKE PROTEIN BALLS

OH.MY.GOSH
These are SO amazing and literally smelt like a vanilla/coconut milkshake when I was making them…I had to hold myself back from eating all of the mixture!! Plus, they are plant based, gluten free, dairy free, soy free, sugar free and if you want to make them nut free you could substitute the almond meal for coconut flour or gluten free oats!  (more…)

CHOC-PROTEIN VEGAN PANCAKES

Continuing on my Candida diet, I wanted to treat myself over the weekend after sticking to it alllllll week! So, I got to researching and edited a few healthy protein pancake recipes I came across to suit the Candida requirements. I do have to say, I think the cinnamon was a game-changer!

INGREDIENTS:
4 tbsp coconut flour (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…)

SMOOTHIE BOWLS

I have a new obsession…smoothies in a bowl.

They are popping up everywhere. Check out your local healthy cafe and they are sure to have an assortment of flavours. They are SO easy. Here is my fav recipe at the moment:

Berry Protein Smoothie Bowl:
1 frozen banana
1 -2 cups frozen berries
1/2 cup milk of your choice. I use almond & coconut
Scoop of vanilla protein powder
1 tblsp BSC greens powder (if desired)

Put all above ingredients into a blender or thermomix and blend until smooth. I do 45 seconds on speed 10 in the thermo. If it’s still a little lumpy I scrape down and repeat for another 45 seconds

Then top with whatever you like! I like to use strawberries, a sprinkle of oats or granola/muesli (try my apple & cinnamon quinoa deeeelish granola here), almonds, chia seeds and coconut.

Get creative! I’ll post some new fun smoothie bowl recipes soon!

APPLE CRUMBLE

Oh.My.God

Apple Crumble

Kayla Itsines has created the most amazing healthy Apple crumble recipe EVER and I’m telling you it tastes exactly like the naughty store-bought version!
Easter has left me craving sweet food and all I wanted last night was a hot cross bun, so I figured I’ll try this instead seeing as it’s similar flavours. I died.

INGREDIENTS
1 Apple
10g desired nuts (I used almonds)
30g oats
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tblsp water

METHOD
1. Set oven to 130 degrees C and core Apple (not all the way through or your crumble will come out the end!)
2. Put all other ingredients in a blender and blend to desired consistency (I used the thermomix on speed 9 for 2 seconds)
3. Spoon the crumble mixture into the Apple and put the Apple in the oven to cook for 30 mins

I had left over crumble, so am totally using it tomorrow night for dessert! I also added a scoop of Greek yoghurt and a teaspoon of date paste once cooked. Seriously…yuuuuuum

 

* I wouldn’t normally post a Kayla H.E.L.P recipe, as it’s from her paid and copyrighted recipe book, but I saw she has actually posted the recipe herself a long time ago so figured if she has shared the yummi-ness already then why not
