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…)

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…)

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…)

DRAGON FRUIT

So we all know fruit & vegetables are good for us…but there are some more than others! One that’s been on my radar the last few months is Dragon Fruit (or Pitaya) and I’ve been researching just WHY it’s so good for us and why it’s classified as a Superfood. So, here we go… (more…)

BOOTYLICIOUS

Ready for a new booty workout?!
I’ve been trying to incorporate a new range of workouts and exercises to shake up my workout routines. I generally rotate between a mix of Yoga and Boxing as my faves and throw in some BBG from Kayla Itsines and Booty Challenge by Ashy Bines.  (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…)
