These pancakes are inspired by dumplings I once tried my hand at (and failed miserably). These guys are much easier – no messy filling to contend with, and even better, become a pancake hybrid when fried in sesame oil. Perfect as an appetiser with friends, or as a quick dinner after work.
My healthy take on this Tex-Mex favourite, this burrito won’t leave you feeling weighed down. Traditionally loaded with refried beans, rice, cheese and sour cream, for some they can be difficult to digest leaving you feeling sluggish. Next time you’re craving Mexican, make this your go-to for an option your tastebuds and tummy will love.
Quite possibly the best chocolate chip cookies you’ll ever taste, these mouthfuls of goodness are completely gluten, dairy and refined sugar free – replacing traditional ingredients with more nutritious ingredients. They give a boost to your daily fibre, protein and anti-oxidant intake, and keep your blood sugar levels happy too.
One of my favourite ways to start the day, spirulina makes it into may of my smoothie bowls. This blue-green algae is extremely nutritious and acts as a powerful antioxidant. If you’re not ready to try it alone, peppermint covers up the taste perfectly!
If you’ve never tried a black sapote, you’re missing out. A relative of the persimmon fruit, they are also known as chocolate pudding fruit, and don’t disappoint! They have four times as much vitamin C than an orange – great immune boosters when you’re feeling a little under the weather. Chocolate is just what the doctor ordered.
I love to start my day with a cup of matcha green tea. Giving you a morning boost with the rollercoaster of coffee, its an awesome way to get your energy and concentration levels up. Being a little bit obsessed with all matcha-related things, I whipped up these delish greenola these bars – a great morning or 3pm pick-me-up!
So you’ve over-indulged a little. An extra piece of pie, a bar of chocolate, or a few too many vinos. That’s cool – it’s totally human to let loose once in a while. Bring yourself back to balance with this deliciously nourishing smoothie. Packed with vitamins, hydrating coconut water and potassium, this one is sure to make you feel fabulous again in no time.
Acai berries are said to be amazing for your ticker, improve weight loss, promote pretty skin, boost digestion and more. Pretty special for a tiny berry! Acai is not only hailed as a superfood for it’s antioxidant benefits, but it also makes one amazing smoothie bowl for morning when you need something quick and nourishing. Throw it all in a blender, whizz, top, done. It doesn’t get much simpler (or tastier!) than that.
There’s a place in this world for healthy ice-cream. Dairy-free, sugar-free ice cream without a churner (because who owns one of those?!). While Gelato Messina (a Sydney Institution) makes my boyfriends top treat list, I literally get the shakes from the sugar content, syrups and moreish cookie pieces.
This is my answer to a cup of Messina, minus the medical issues. Packed with healthy fats and zero refined sugar to keep your tastebuds and waistline happy. Skip the wattle seed if you can’t lay your hands on it, and you’ll still get one hella-tasty coconut ice-cream.
Tigernuts are not actually nuts – deceptive little things. They are however, just as delicious, and their flour makes crumbly, delicious cookies that you won’t be able to leave alone. Consider this your warning, tiger.
