I’m back from holidays and not loving reality. Such a positive start to a blog post right? I feel like I could have extended my holiday for twice the length at least if money hadn’t have been an issue. If money wan’t an issue so much of life would be different wouldn’t it? But I had the most amazing time, and have so many experiences to share with you all…soon. For now let’s start with a recipe that was influenced by Morocco, where couscous is king.
I love snacking, especially when you’re watching a movie or sharing some drinks with friends. This popcorn takes a simple snack to the next level, making it very grown up and even more addictive than the original. Look out.
Who doesn’t love a good sausage roll? We do these so well in Australia and I’ve been branching out occasionally recently and doing something I never thought I would. Eating vego sausage rolls. Sorry, ‘sausage’ rolls. I’m still calling them that as they’re the right shape and the same idea but just filled with veggies! Super nourishing and filling and all encased in flaky puff pastry.
Kale chips, yes yes I’m a bit late jumping on this bandwagon but I swear I’ve been making them for years now. It’s just that I didn’t think my kale chips with just olive oil, sometimes chilli, and salt were ground breaking enough to share with anyone. Not that every recipe I share is always groundbreaking! Clearly not! But these kale chips are next level. I ate 2/3 of a bunch of kale in one sitting because of these. That’s a lot of kale, who does that?
This is a green smoothie that packs a punch in the antioxidant and good for you departments. There’s matcha for those antioxidants, a good dose of omega 3’s, potassium, vitamins A, C and K to name a few, fibre, protein it’s like a powerhouse. I love serving it in a bowl over some muesli for hidden crunch and topped with fruit for contrasting flavours. And because it looks pretty tbh.
A super simple make ahead breakfast that will put a smile on your face in the morning. I love peanut butter in both sweet and savoury dishes, and this slightly sweet dessert is given a nutty protein kick with a good dollop of roasted peanut butter.
My current obsession. It’s the perfect breakfast in a hurry (or post work out snack) and you don’t have to make it look all pretty. Just pour it into a portable cup or bottle and run out the door. It’s the quickest way to get your morning coffee and breakfast in one go.
I love choc mint, it’s a child hood favourite of mine. Whether it be in mint choc chip ice cream or a mint slice, or after dinner mints it’s always been a favourite combination of mine.
I’ve posted a cookie dough bliss ball recipe before. Those one’s were a nut free version and they were yummy but I’ve got to say, roast almonds make these so much better! Both are vegan and refined sugar free.
I’m sort of obsessed with coconut based treats. I always have been. Bounty Bars and Cherry Ripes are two of my favourite chocolate bars. So having already tried my hand at a healthier version of the Bounty Bar I thought it was time to to tackle the cherry ripe.
