These ideas will help even the biggest meat eater happily include more vegetables, easily, every day. I am not vegan or vegetarian but there are many reasons why I try to include as many vegetables as I can in my diet. I was once a fussy eater, and there have been plenty of vegetables that I claimed to hate over the years. But now I have legitimate cravings for vegetables… seriously (obviously amongst the chocolate ones). Sometimes I don’t know who I am anymore…
This makes for a fantastic grab and go, pre prepped for your morning rush breakfast solution. Yes salad is your breakfast solution. Because it’s acceptable to eat salad at all other times of the day so why not breakfast? I know fruit salad is a breakfast staple but I don’t really like fruit salad. It makes me think of nasty hotel breakfast buffets or syrupy concoctions. This is a savoury salad, full of greens and they typical things you might eat for breakfast – just in a salad.
The first time I bit into these charred and glossy spears I swore, with pure joy. And then I went and boiled an egg because I thought that would be amazing with them and called it lunch. I ate all the asparagus (whoops, that’s apparently not a great idea…). Then I licked the bowl. These are seriously that good. And I do realise I’m talking about asparagus.
This salad makes a delicious dinner when the weather gets warm and an easy lunch. You can make it the day ahead and take it to work. As you’ll see it’s seriously simple to make, simple food is where it’s at for week day lunches.
Chilli and tomato are great friends. And this is a great homemade sauce to add pizazz to sandwiches, burgers, wraps, have with roast vegies or meat. It’s free of nasty additives and full of flavour.
This smoothie is both tasty and pretty. And full of the good stuff of course! You can use your preferred milk but almond or oat would both be delicious choices. The marbled effect is easy to do and makes for a pretty finish. We eat with our eyes first and I find the nice my food looks the more mindful I am when eating it.
It’s true. I have posted A LOT of cauliflower recipes of late. But I keep on finding whole cauliflower at the market for $2 or less and I just can’t resist a good deal! These tacos are a fabulous vegetarian alternative to my usual fish or chicken tacos. The cauliflower florets get all delicious and crunchy on the outside while staying a little crisp on the inside – I’m not a fan of overcooked cauliflower!
If you put risotto in the too hard basket then this one will show you that risotto isn’t as difficult as you think it is. This risotto is amazing, it’s velvety and creamy, without the cream and full of crispy crunchy texture to boot. This recipe makes for a simple and impressive dinner, I promise it’s not just ‘wet rice’.
These are my 3 hacks (+3 delicious quick and easy recipes) for making sure lunch is always brilliant and you don’t get bored or stuck in a lunch rut. They are aimed at those who aren’t going to do a huge amount of lunch prep on the weekend and want something that can be thrown together in 15 minutes or less.
Winter means soup. Lots of root vegetables are in abundance and you pretty much want to fill your body with heat at this time of the year, and soup goes well with both those things. This soup uses sweet potato, pumpkin, fragrant spices and a little coconut to warm and nourish you from the inside out.
