The temperature is rising here in Sydney. Spring is finally here and the longer nights are rolling in. What better way to celebrate than with this delicious detoxing bowl of goodness? Packed with antioxidants, minerals and nutrients for glowing skin, it’s the perfect way to start the season. Lather up in sun lotion and take this out on your patio with a good book.

The healthy stuff: Shrimp (or prawns if you’re from the UK!) have fewer kilojoules, more protein and way less fat than beef, skinless chicken, pork and lamb. With zero carbs and less fat than all land based animal protein sources, it’s easy to see why they’re awesome for the waistline. Shrimp are naturally high in Omega 3 and 6 polyunsaturated fatty acids, better known as the “good” fats – earning them a rep as ‘brain food’ too. A fantastic addition to a healthy diet.



To get beautiful skin (I’m looking at you, Scarlett Johansson*), healthy fats should be an essential part of your diet. Your nutrition is paramount in achieving supple, hydrated, wrinkle-free skin. The recipe? Essential fatty acids, which irritatingly your body can’t make on its own. This dish is sure to boost your natural glow – chocked full of EFA’s with avocado, mackerel and caviar.

*Disclaimer: this meal does not guarantee an overnight transformation to Scarlett.



Berries rock my world. They’re mother natures’ own sweets…juicy, tart, and perfectly bite-sized. Bonus: they’re packed with vitamins that your body will love. Blackberries are among the top ranked antioxidant-rich fruits and contain high levels of fiber, manganese, copper and vitamin C. Urggghh….too much science?! Translation: they’re great for weight control, clear skin and energy. With just 61 calories a cup, blackberries make a great snack or addition to your morning smoothie, just like this one.



Crumbles are one of my favourite desserts. Hot, sweet and deeply satisfying, theres just something about that oaty topping against juicy seasonal fruit. It’s a dessert I grew up with and ate at least once a week, although admittedly they were full of white sugar, butter and a whole heap of custard to boot. In typical fashion I had to recreate it, and what’s better than dessert for breakfast? Not a lot. One healthy ‘Bressert’ coming your way…

Amp up your breakfast with antioxidants from these dark berries and you’ll benefit from clearer skin, improved digestion and a stronger immune system. #winning.
