Salted Caramel Brekkie Bowl

Two-Minute Salted Caramel Smoothie Bowl

Salt + caramel. Is there anything better? Actually, yes. A healthy version. This is one of my go-to breakfasts after an intense morning workout. It helps to replenish protein and glycogen stores and build lean muscle (which in turn burns calories – yay!). The Maca is gives the dish a toffee flavour, and works to alleviate anxiety and stress in the body. It’s also high in iron and is great for boosting energy – much needed on a Monday morning. Whip it up in under 2 minutes for a delicious dessert too.

Lemon & Thyme Chicken with Sweet Potato and Greens

Lemon & Thyme Chicken with Sweet Potato and Greens

Even I will admit that trying to eat a variety of nutritious dinners can be a bit of an effort sometimes. Plain protein and greens hits my dinner table ALOT, so I’ve managed to perfect the art of ‘jazzing’ them up in as many ways as possible. This delicious and simple meal is great for busy weeknights and offers 35g of quality protein, along with loads of vitamins and minerals. The addition sweet potato will keep you from reaching for dessert too. Clever {low GI} carbs.

Chocolate Protein Mini Muffins

Chocolate Protein Mini Muffins

*My muffins bring all the (gym) boys to the yard*

Need a healthy pick-me-up? These mini chocolate muffins are where it’s at. These babies are awesome for chocolate cravings, are sugar free (you’re sweet enough, right?) and are totally gluten + dairy free. Not only that, they’re boosted with additional protein, which acts as the building block for your bones and muscles. It’s also one of the only nutrients your body can’t produce itself, so you have to supply it with a steady stream throughout the day.

Biology not your thing? Basically, just eat these.

Chocolate & Cherry Mousse Pots

Chocolate & Cherry Parfait

You would be forgiven for thinking this velvety smooth chocolate cream would wreak havoc with your clean eating goals. However, this guilt free alternative is actually full of anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatory mono-saturated fats. It’s versatile too: try it spread on your favourite toast, use as a clean cake frosting or even fruit dip. Teamed with a layer of simple cherry Chia Jam, this will become a new favourite for entertaining. Impressive, simple and downright delicious.

Simple Chia Jam

Simple Chia Jam

A great way to curb cravings, this simple jam contains much less sugar than the store-bought stuff. It takes about 3 minutes to prepare, and with the help of the almighty chia seed, it will fill you up quicker. Dollop on your morning oats, swirl into yoghurt, use as a fruit dip, or spread on some delicious rye bread. With the addition of liquid, chia seeds swell to 17 times their original size and slow the conversion of carbohydrates into sugar. Clever little things.
