Gluten Free Berry & Pear Loaf

Yummy! Moist! Easy! I had a bunch of pears that I’d originally bought for our guinea pigs, but they weren’t eating them fast enough! This is simple & doesn’t take long to throw together.  Pre heat the oven to 180 degrees. Dice up 4-6 pears & 8-10 strawberries & microwave for two minutes. In a…

Bean & Vegetable Soup

Easy, quick & healthy! I love a good soup.  Any kind sits well with me & my belly. It’s easy to throw a bunch of vegies together to make any type of soup. I always have a base in the freezer which I use when making risotto or soups. It adds extra vegies & all…

Lemon Slice

  This turned out better than I expected and is super low in fat & calories.  Next time I will aim for a more biscuity base rather than using the Weet Bix.  The cereal gave the slice more of a soft texture than a crunchy base. You will need: 100 grams of stevia/equal/Natvia- whatever is…

New Year, New You

I’ve made a few bits and pieces the last few days but haven’t had much time to blog. Here’s a selection of foods I’ve whipped up in a hurry. This parfait was fun to make with my son & gave me the much needed protein after a mini workout. I’ve been trying to walk daily…

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…

24 Days of Salad: Tasting Plate

This has to be my favourite type of salad. A bit of everything without the pile of greens!  Usually a plate of lettuce with a few chopped up vegetables isn’t exactly enticing but a small variety of vegies and sauces displayed right, look much more appealing. Try mushrooms, mini capsicums, pretzels (yes pretzels), nuts, mayonnaise…

24 Days of Salads: Egg & Avocado

This. Was. The. Bomb. I love avocado. As written in previous posts, it’s health benefits are amazing. Almost like its the most perfect food. I’m yet to try it with maple syrup as recommended by a friend.  Avo’s are versitile too- add to smoothies, cakes, sweet or savoury dishes & even to your skin & hair….

24 Days of Salad: Mediterranean Mix

Tonight’s salad consisted of a few handfuls of mixed green salad leaves & some marinated vegetables. I was cooking the family some seafood so I added a few prawns to my mix of feta, olives, semi dried tomatoes & anchovies. This was a really quick & easy dish to throw together & was a fresh, fuller meal…

24 Days of Salad: Radish & Apple Slaw

Easy to prepare & comes together in a matter of minutes. Perfect for a 30 degree evening too! Combine a couple of cups of pre-made coleslaw with a handful of walnuts. Cut up two large radishes & add to the slaw.  Slice a medium size apple & add to the mix (I used a Pink Lady).  For a…

Veggie Chips

We had so much fun making these & they were so simple, easy & cheap to create, easily a weekly dish.  We made potato, zucchini & broccoli chips using only salt, pepper, chilli & coconut oil. Start by slicing your zucchini & potatoes thinly- I use a Nicer Dicer- and place each in a bowl…
