I haven’t made a buddha bowl in what feels like ages and this was just what I needed. Golden coconut coated tofu, roasted kale and lightly pickled carrot with a creamy avocado and peanut sauce or piled on top of quinoa – perfect.
This is the instant sweet treat you’re after. It’s full of fibre and antioxidant rich ingredients, and can be made on the stove top in a matter of minutes. The perfect solution to your winter cravings. All the ingredients are pantry or fridge staples. One of them is water…
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.
Let the Christmas ‘baking’ continue! So there’s probably some sort of copyright problem with me calling these Bounty balls. But they are so reminiscent of a bounty, and it used to be my favourite chocolate bar as a kid so that’s a huge compliment. These little chocolates are ridiculous easy to make and way healthier than the original.
Well these were a happy accident! I wanted something sweet and had limited ingredients lying around, was thinking something with raspberry, something with chocolate, something that would take less that ten minutes to make. And tah-dah!
An easy weeknight dinner with a super simple no cook satay sauce. This tastes great hot or cold and uses raw sweet potato. Yep, raw. Actually all the vegetables are raw (or almost) so it’s super quick to make which is always a win.
I love the mix of soba noodles and vegetable noodles in this salad. The soba noodles are filling and if you use the buckwheat variety, some what nutty, the xoodles are tender and fresh and the carrot noodles (coodles?! nope, probably not) keep their crunchy. They’re all then dressed in the delicious creamy dressing and finished off with more vegetables and that vibrant pesto. Yum.
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.
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 muesli is light, crunchy and great for anyone who wants something for breakfast that is a little lower in fat and sugar than muesli loaded with nuts and dried fruit. It’s also a great muesli if you can’t eat nuts or dried fruit which sums up my new housemate and I perfectly. Instead of nuts the crunch comes from toasted seeds, coconut and puffed grains, the flavours are warm and lightly spiced and served with some fresh fruit (hey berries, so glad you’re fructose content is so friendly to me) and yoghurt/milk it makes for a quick and easy breakfast.
