Sydney’s stores and farmer’s markets are brimming full of summer berries – YAY. Some of you will be able to buy berries all year long depending on where you live (not jealous at all). Regardless, make the best of these little jewels while they’re around. They all have so much to offer nutritionally – topping the charts in antioxidant power, protecting your body against inflammation and free radicals (those molecules that damage cells and organs). They’re also loaded with fibre which helps you to feel full and eat less (for those watching their weight).
This simple porridge showcases them perfectly and is packed with protein. A great post-workout brekkie, or perfect fuel for a long day at the office.
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.
These little pots of heaven are so simple to make. No baking and no whisking, just a little stir and you’ve created one light and tasty dessert. Perfect for summers on the terrace post-bbq, the zingy lemon is a great palate cleanser.
The perfect summer mocktail to keep you cool and hydrated. Did you know lemons can also curb your appetite? They contain pectin – a soluble fibre that creates a feeling of fullness, resulting in the suppression of hunger pangs. Enjoy a refreshing glass 30 mins before your BBQ and watch your portion size diminish.
