Breakfast / Lunch / Dinner

Quinoa, Coconut & Pear Bircher Muesli

Breakfast is THE most important meal of the day and often the most difficult to organise in the morning rush. Breakfast not only  breaks your overnight fast, it refuels you for a busy day, it gets your metabolism going and it provides you with energy.  It is really critical to get […]

Chickpea Flour Pancakes

Sundays are Pancake Days.  I love theme meal days!  I grew up with a mom that had a meal for each day.  In fact, the meal plan was up on the fridge so we all knew what to expect for dinner.  My personal favourites were Pizza Fridays & Pancake Sundays. […]

Un-Real Burger

Who says you can’t eat amazingly tasty, wholesome, healthy food? This Burger is exactly that, and more! With South African Heritage Day just around the corner (24 September), I thought I would post this recipe as this occasion is usually celebrated around a fire and meat (known as a “Braai” […]

? “Berry Much” Smoothie

Why Berries? Berries are like little, great tasting tablets.  Although small, they are nutrition powerhouses!   They have extremely high levels of phytochemicals —  naturally occurring nutrients that help protect cells from damage. Berries are loaded with antioxidants which neutralise free radicals and can help with prevention of cancer and cardiovascular […]

Vietnamese Rice Paper Rolls

Summer is on its way, and the pressure to don the bikini is mounting!  This is the start of a few summer recipes that will help you on your way to feeling great.  Remember its not how you look that’s important, its how you feel.  When you eat deliciously fresh […]

Quinoa Salad with Snow Pea Tendrils.

Another one of my protein-packed salads (blush). So after 3 weeks in South Africa eating on-the-go and eating out combined with a lack of hard training (other than burpees in my room!), I feel a little more “padded” than I did 3 weeks ago.  So, its back to lots of […]

Another Soup for the Soup Lovers

Its no secret, I am a fan of soup.  And, the funny thing is, my kids love it too.  Even my little man (who isnt the biggest fan of vegetables), loves any soup I put in front of him, as long as it is smooth!  There really isn’t too much to […]

Chia Pudding

Chia: (chi-a) and not (CHAAI!) The latest superfood to actually make it to the mainstream retailers shelves, and thats saying something!  It means Chia has managed to step out of the small superfood niche and into most households. Chia is an incredibly nutritious seed and is probably going to make […]

Spicy Bean Soup – Winter Warmers

Just took the kids out for a Sunday Arvo walk and we got caught in the rain.  Instead of running for cover, we decided to have some fun and get drenched.  So after jumping in puddles and racing leaves down the street in the small streams (took me right back […]

Quinoa, Coconut and Coriander Salad

So I am quite a salad freak.  Love salads and when I say salad I dont mean lettuce, tomatoes and cucumber…I mean protein packed deliciousness and plenty fresh ingredients on a plate!  NEVER be stingy with a salad. Suggest increasing quantity and keeping leftover in fridge for up to 3 days. […]
