How pretty does this look?! And it tastes so so good. This could be a post run pick me up or breakfast, the smoothie is full of fruit and chia seeds for an amino acid boost. You could also add some protein powder if you’re that way inclined.
This is a nourishing bowl of goodness. The sweet and sticky carrots, bright green peppery rocket, creamy labne, spicy za’atar mix and filling quinoa and lentils make for a delicious lunch or easy to throw together dinner. Everything can be prepped early and be waiting for you in the fridge to grab and take to work.
The creamy caramelised pumpkin that tops this bruschetta can easily be prepared the night before for an indulgent week day breakfast or just add a poached egg and you’ve got a delicious weekend brunch. Sweet pumpkin, fragrant thyme and salty feta is a pretty classic combination, but perhaps you’re yet to eat it for breakfast?
I know that an ANZAC biscuit holds a very special place in Australia and New Zealand’s hearts and I shouldn’t muck with it too much. And I haven’t! This is just an alternative, and macadamia nuts are super Australian. And white chocolate is super New Zealand. Follow my logic carefully on that last part… the Maori name for New Zealand is Aotearoa, meaning the land of the long white cloud, and white chocolate is white like a cloud! Makes total sense. Much Australia. Much New Zealand.
This week’s Friday finds is quite the mixed bag. Basically, as per usual, it’s what I’ve been into for the last week.
This green goddess noodle bowl makes for such a delicious lunch. It can be eaten warm or cold, is full of green veg, buckwheat noodles and a tasty immune boosting ginger laced dressing. Plus it can be vegetarian, vegan or filled with whatever choice of protein you’re into. Versatile, easy food that works just as well for lunch as it does for dinner is what I’m all about.
You probably won’t believe me but these muffins have no added sugar. They don’t use dried fruit, only whole fruit. They’re also gluten free, light and fluffy. And yep, they’re filled with peanut butter and raspberry. Other than the peanut butter there’s also no added fat. Oh and they taste REALLY good.
Because there can never be enough cheese. This flat bread uses 2 of my favourite cheeses: buffalo mozzarella and goats feta. Both have such a great creaminess to them but I love the combination of sharp feta and gooey mozzarella against the mushrooms on this flatbread. It’s perfect.
This week it’s all about fitness. Plus a podcast and Netflix recommendation… and what I’m cooking/eating. This is a food blog after all.
This salad has a lot going for it, such as a whole rainbow of colour. Not to mention it’s super filling, full of protein, complex carbs, fibre and all the vitamins from that pretty array of vegetables. Speaking of pretty it also has that and I do think eating pretty food makes it taste better… we eat with our eyes and all that?
