Crunchy Polenta Fingers- Chris’ Dips

I love snacking, and I’m always trying to come up with quick and easy foods to create. Especially vegan and vegetarian dishes that are portable and easy to eat on the run. Polenta is such a versatile food which can be made sweet or savoury.  It can be used to make ‘fries’ or sweetened to…

Healthy Pizza Bites- Chris’ Dips

Have you tried the new range of Chris’ Dips? My favourite at the moment is the Spiced Roasted Carrot and Turmeric. It is FULL of flavour and very moreish. It’s safe to say I’ve eaten the entire container. The great thing about the Chris’ Dips range is they taste like you’ve just made them yourself….

Oliver’s Real Food

Oliver’s is the kinda place that you want to see at every shopping centre, every airport & at every servo. These guys are making healthy, quick, nutritious food accessible.  Unfortunately the only downfall at the moment is that it takes an eTag to visit them, something I don’t have… So I bought an east link…

The Nutrition Bar

I love that there are so many more places opening up that are providing real, genuine foods. Nutrition Bar has been at the top of my list for a while & I finally made the visit to Richmond by train today. The two staff members working today were friendly and patient as I perused the menu boards…

Gluten Free Tofu Dippers

I love using tofu. It’s so versatile and comes in many forms. It’s plain and pretty tasteless but adding sauces, spices and herbs can create many delicious dishes. Silken tofu is perfect for use in cakes and to even use as vegan ‘scrambled eggs’. I purchased some Firm Tofu to crumb; and pair with my…

The Lilydale General

I adore this place. It’s always busy (a good sign) full of life and has a gorgeous variety of foods and drinks.  There’s everything from freshly squeezed juices, smoothies to big breakfasts, tacos and burgers.  All their meals are beautifully presented.  There’s a huge variety of vegan, gluten free and dairy free options. I started…

Vegan Cadbury Creme Eggs

I love Creme Eggs. Like I LOVE them. They’re gooey, sweet, messy and only hang around for a few weeks of the year. Due to the high fat and sugar content I decided to create my own healthier version. A standard Creme Egg has about 150 calories, 9 grams of fat & 24g carbs. My…

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…

Raspberry & White Chocolate Cupcakes

I wanted to make something sweet for the weekend, and I hadn’t baked cupcakes in a while. I prefer I play around with recipes and hope they turn out well. I made these gluten free. You will need: 1.5 cups gluten free self raising flour  1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk 1/2 cup powdered stevia 1/2 block…
