Superfood Salad!

Its so chilly here in Sydney that I’m spending most of my evenings trying to perfect a way to drape myself over my portable heater in a way that warms me all over at once. To be honest, salad is really low down there on the foods I feel like eating right now. But then…

Nona’s Gone Crackers! Delicious gluten-free, vegan crackers.

I love Mary’s Gone Crackers, but at $9 a box in Australia they are so expensive. So I got busy in the kitchen this weekend trying to recreate a similar cracker. Nona, my mum, is the genius here, she hit upon an amazing recipe that I actually prefer to the original. I ate about 5 straight from…

Jaffa bliss balls

I have been having some serious chocolate moments lately. It seems I can’t go a day without something sweet passing my lips. It started a couple of weeks ago when someone at work left a cake in the kitchen with an invitation to “help yourself” and all the good snacking habits I had cultivated seemed…

Gluten-free Smoky Black Rice Crackers

Gluten-free Smoky Black Rice Crackers I had a surge of energy a few weekends ago which saw me put my kitchen alchemist hat on and get a bit wild in the kitchen.

One of my pet topics is calcium (I know, I’m such a nerd). I always try to get the recommended serves of dairy in every day. The best source of calcium is from dairy foods such as milk, yoghurt and cheese. I normally have milk and yoghurt as part of my morning foods and in the…

Slow Cooked Mediterranean Lamb

There’s been a bit of a chill in the air these past few mornings, so I decided it was high time I dug the slow cooker out and put it to use. I have seen plenty of slow cooker recipes doing the rounds and knowing that I eat best when I have healthy food to…

Hawaiian Fries and Guacamole

I had a hankering for something hot and crunchy today and thought some homemade fries might do the trick! I had a Hawaiian sweet potato which needed to be used, and half an avocado left in the fridge and Voila! a healthy lunch was born! It was full of flavour and ticked my request for something hot and…

Garlic Tomatoes and Spinach Toast

Whenever I have a hot breakfast, I try to get at least two serves of vegetables in. Whether is baked beans, garlic mushrooms or a grilled tomato, I like knowing I’ve got the day off to a good start by loading up with a few vegetables. I had the morning off work so I thought I…
