thai salmon with cucumber relish

1969266_1561342357469806_918912065449012438_n

How epic does this salmon dish look? It can easily become a weekly go-to meal because it takes literally less than 20 minutes to make. Also, it’s amazingly refreshing because of the herbs and salmon is a superfood; packed with protein, omega-3 fatty acids, vitamins and minerals (including potassium, selenium and vitamin B12). Best thing, it’s just absolutely yummy 🙂

pineapple stir-fry

I love pineapple but while it’s great on its own, this tropical and sweet fruit adds a delicious addition to a stir-fry. I just used a whole lot of veggies I had in my fridge and a bit of ham for a meal that’s packed with fibre, protein and antioxidants. You can replace ham with beef or anything else you like, or you can just have this as a vegetarian dish.

I can’t get enough of the health food scene in Sydney. But out of all the healthy cafes I’ve tried out so far, I have a soft spot for About Life in Bondi Junction mainly because I randomly stumbled into it after finishing a workout session at Centennial Park and their food just hit the spot.

So there’s lots of versions of this meal idea, but I figured out a quick and easy paleo and dairy-free combo that took me less than 40 minutes to make. It’s packed with natural, wholefood ingredients and because it’s mostly made up of veggies, you’ll be getting plenty of fibre, antioxidants and phytonutrients.

thin and crispy sweet potato fritters

So they’re not the prettiest things on a plate, but these fritters really are the ultimate comfort food that’s packed with loads of zing and crunch! I love that it’s mostly made up of ingredients you can easily find in your fridge or pantry. But if almond meal isn’t handy, you can use oats as a replacement, which works well with my other hearty favourite dish, Asian Chicken Meatballs.

nourishing pumpkin and chicken curry soup

IMG_20140624_134654

As winter digs in, few things make life feel comforting and cosier than a bowl of nourishing soup. This recipe adds a delicious twist on a classic winter favourite. The bulb of garlic and curry powder adds depth of flavour and warmth and the shredded chicken makes this dish more than just a soup – it’s a satisfying meal that’s full of protein.
