Dashboard Cookies

It’s going to get to around 40 degrees celsius today but we still wanted to bake. I tossed around no-bake ideas but we then decided to experiment with using the hot car as an oven.  Guess what?! It worked! You will need: 3/4 cup mixed grain cereal or muesli 1/2 cup wholemeal flour 1 egg…

Eggnog Pancakes

So easy to make & only three ingredients. These are rough measurements so have a play with quantities.  In a bowl I mixed, half a cup of eggnog, half a cup if self raising flour & one egg.  Once a smooth texture I fried piklet-sized cakes on a non-stick pan for about a minute on each…

Chocolate Mint Truffles

These were a bit of an experiment but they resulted in a tasty, minty truffle that’s soft & fudge-like on the inside!  Completely UN healthy but ’tis the season to be jolly & full.  Rather than eating them yourself, make them as a gift! These are so easy to make & literally include a handful…

Vegan Eggnog

I came up with this recipe as I was stunned that I could not find a vegan or dairy free eggnog anywhere in stores. Even the health food stores have me blank stares. This has a similar consistancy to eggnog without the egg part! You will need:  1 avocado 1 cup coconut milk 2 cups…

Stuffed Mini Capsicums

Made a light snack today, super easy and quick with some things I had in the fridge. This was easy to do with some mini capsicums and about two tablespoons of light cream cheese.  I added a teaspoon of honey & 10 crushed pistachios. Mix and then stuff each capsicum. This made four little bite…

iHerb

Everyone is shopping online, for everything! Clothes, shoes, baby goods & foods. I work in retail & I really should be doing the whole ‘supporting the economy’ but when prices are high for everything we are all trying to save a few bucks. I adore shopping online for products that cannot be purchased in Australia…

Coconut Yoghurt Smoothie

I think this is the best smoothie that I’ve made so far… It is completely dairy free, gluten free & vegan.  I had some coconut yoghurt in the fridge so I popped it in a blender along with two frozen bananas a tablespoon of chia seeds a teaspoon of agave syrup and a handful of frozen…

Vegspiration

Knowing ‘who, what & where’ is a plus with any kind of produce or product. It can make a huge difference to what and who you’re actually supporting. And as they say, is it another car for a big CEO or is it next year’s school uniform for a local school boy. It’s great to…

Duck Duck Mother Goose

Just like Coolstore Fresh, there’s history in small business, or history in the making for some… Duck Duck Mother Goose Here’s a rundown on these two beautiful ladies & their exciting idea that has now come to fruition. Made in Mandurah, Western Australia. We use sustainable, locally grown produce and we create a scrumptious fine…

Smoothie Time

A quick smoothie for the morning- spinach, banana, raspberry, agave & unsweetened almond milk. Smoothies are super easy & anything can be blended quick & smooth & sweetened to your liking. A good way to get a dose of vegetables too!

@Halfway2Healthy on Instagram

Before my blog, I was posting my food inspirations, ideas & recipe attempts on Instagram.  It’s just amazing how much social media influences people & the variety of information that can be shared.  Reputable websites with references or those endorsed by medical or nutritional practitioners are always best.  I would always double check what people…

All Wrapped Up!

And by that I don’t mean Christmas! Wraps are a great alternative to bread and are quick and easy to create. I’d cooked some salmon for dinner so I added a few pieces to some salad greens and wrapped it all up in a light rye wrap. Be aware of the calorie content of wraps…
