Full disclosure here, I am not a breakfast person. I hate soggy cereal with a passion and skipped breakfast all together as a teenager. During adolescence, I developed a particular love for breakfast when camouflaged as ‘brunch’ (obviously involving smashed avo or shakshuka). But my relationship with breakfast didn’t change until I endured my first round of Whole30 last September. During that month, I discovered Australia’s Own Unsweetened Coconut Milk and it completely changed my breakfast routine.
A couple of years ago, we were inspired by Little Creature’s divine pumpkin salad and decided to make our own at home. The result, was this little beauty. I have to restrain from loading my whole plate with this salad, because it taste so scrumptious!
Since moving out, I make it regularly because it’s the best of both worlds: easy to make and delicious to eat! And not only can you have it as a salad, you can also add it to a wrap for a slightly different lunchtime treat!
Is it just me, or is it incredibly difficult to find a healthy snack? Whenever I feel a bit peckish, I usually spoon a generous amount of peanut butter to keep me going. But as I’m about to kickstart my health journey (again), I’m determined to boot harmful habits, like my bad snacking. One thing I now always have on hand are rice cakes because there are so many ways to enjoy them. As the weather’s been warming up Down Under, I’ve really enjoyed my rice cakes with this refreshing and classic trio: Avocado, Coriander and Lime. These three are a perfect combo because they’re opposite flavours that compliments one other. Zestful, citrusy and smooth. Together, it’s the perfect balance.
While summer is only a couple of months away (for us Down Under), I’m still in love with my soups. This one that I’m rolling out today features three of my favourite things: moroccan flavouring, sweet potato and chickpeas. Because the spices in this soup are so scrumptious and delicious, its hard not to tuck in as soon as it’s ready! Plus, not only does it taste fantastic, it gives you a great dose of Vitamin A and Vitamin C (and it knocks out 2/5 daily vegetables… what more could you want?).
Growing up, I hated soups with a passion. My younger self considered them to be one of the most boring and blandest meals imaginable. However, one of my local go-to lunch spots, Stove Monkey, has inspired me to give soups a second shot. As a result, I’ve discovered three reasons behind my new-found love for soup:
- They taste amazing (if you find a flavour combo that tickles your tastebuds)
- They’re easy to make
- They’re perfect for meal prepping
