One of the jobs that put me through uni was working at a hairdresser. Which mostly involved making coffee, giving head massages and sweeping the floor.
But one of the most memorable parts of that job was Helen’s famous mini Christmas puddings. People would always “just drop in to say hello” from the 1st of December in hope of taking home one of the absolutely dense, decadent mini puddings.
In my group nutrition programs, I help people ditch the sugar and processed foods and transition to a real-food approach to eating. Without a doubt, the number one question I get asked as people are going through this process is "what on earth can I eat for breakfast?!"
It's cold outside in Sydney but a steaming bowl of this curry will warm you right up! I love my slow cooker, and this is one of my favourite easy recipes to whip up. Pop it in the morning before you leave home, and voila, a beautiful meal is waiting for you when you get home!
Satay sauce is so delicious! But while peanuts and peanut butter may be ok in moderation, they aren't the healthiest choice. There are a few reasons for this, including the susceptibility of peanuts to aflatoxins (a toxic fungus), along with a few other factors...
Winter is fast approaching, so when you're chopping up kilos of pumpkin for soup or roasting, don't hoik the seeds! These pumpkin seeds are perfect as a snack, or on top of salads or warming pumpkin soup.
Gelatin is all the rage at the moment, and for good reason! It plays a role in gut healing, promoting healthy skin, protecting your joints and improving sleep quality. Plus, it makes delish desserts and snacks!
If you're not big on veg for breakfast or looking for a healthy snack at work, a green smoothie is a great option! I make my smoothie the night before, store it in a glass jar and sip on it in the morning at work.
Beef pho is one of my absolute favourite meals. It is light and fresh, super healthy and an awesome soup for any season. Its also a sneaky way to incorporate nutrient-rich bone broth into your diet (if you're not into drinking it by the mugful).
