Credit has to be given where it’s due and for the first time since they made free fruit bins available to kids, Countdown Supermarkets have another major positive I’m willing to support – their Macro range! It is made up of healthy whole foods in the green pack and organic options in the purple, and…

So I make banana bread almost every couple of weeks. Usually it’s so we don’t waste the ripening banana bunch I always seem to have left over from our organic veg box, and also because my man absolutely loves it toasted up with butter for morning tea while working on the house. If you leave the…

The basic idea behind lactation cookies is to offer ingredients that will promote milk production and let down, called galactagogues. Oats, fennel, flaxseed and brewer’s yeast are all considered galactagogues so have been included in this recipe.

This super simple raw slice is my lazy way of making a healthy treat that I don’t have to roll into balls. I usually make this at the end of a week and store in the freezer for morning or afternoon tea throughout the coming days. I use Ark ‘tailored’ espresso beans and if you…

I definitely agree with snacking! So many of my clients say to me that they enjoy stopping for a snack during their day, or that on the way to the gym they need to eat something so they don’t pass out, and I agree that this is a great time to snack. The old fashioned…

Smoothie bowls, the newest hipster on the block. If a smoothie bowl is simply a smoothie… that has been poured into a bowl… then why do I like them more? When made correctly, I like smoothie bowls better because they force you to eat slower, they’re usually topped with things that require extra chewing, and…

This gluten free, refined sugar free, dairy and egg free bread is absolutely delicious! Recipes sure can make their way around. I’ve taken a recipe I saw posted by the talented nutritionist Emily Hope, that she adapted from medical herbalist Julia Davidson, and now I have some delicious whole nut and seed bread in my freezer for…
