Fruitilicious Smoothie

I have got another yummy, cool and colourful smoothie that I would like to share. This is a fruit rich smoothie and what I mean by that is that there are just 4 different fruits in it with a dash of honey and nothing else. Very simple isn’t it, and the taste is just absolutely lovely. This is just great for breakfast. I made this for myself, but hubby had a taste and decided that he would like to have one too, he is usually not a big smoothie person so that was a yay for me. The four fruits … Continue reading Fruitilicious Smoothie

Zucchini Carrot Pancakes

This recipe is tasty and super simple to make. It is a great way to incorporate some veggies into your meal. It can be had for breakfast, brunch or even a snack. For this recipe, I used one large zucchini and one large carrot. You can easily double up the recipe of you want to make more. I had one zucchini left in my fridge that needed to be used up and this was a great way to do just that. After I grated the veggies, I put them in the microwave for about 2 minutes, giving them a bit … Continue reading Zucchini Carrot Pancakes

Delicious Coffee Smoothie

You all know by now that I love smoothies. This is another one that is so simple to make and delicious. This is a great way to combine your breakfast and coffee. The addition of coffee in it is ideal for that wake up we need either in the morning or when we are in that afternoon slump.

The addition of cinnamon adds a lovely flavour and has health benefits like anti-inflammatory properties, lowers blood sugar levels and is … Continue reading Delicious Coffee Smoothie

Citrusy Green Smoothie

Smoothies are my favourite way of ensuring that I have my daily intake of healthy fruits and veggies. I wanted to have a smoothie rich in vitamins and drinking it made me feel like I am feeding my body such goodness. The weather here down under is colder and as such it is a good time to load up with some extra vitamin c and other nutrients. This smoothie has just five ingredients – two fruits and 2 greens with milk. I love banana and they are such a good addition to any smoothie, in addition to the health benefits, … Continue reading Citrusy Green Smoothie

Nutritious Oat and Nut Bars

I love a filling and healthy bar that can be eaten for a quick and filling breakfast or a snack. This bar is filled with healthy goodness such as nuts (walnuts) seeds (pumpkin and sunflower), some fruit (banana) and some dried fruit (Raisins) The walnuts add a lovely crunch, packed with nutrients such as monounsaturated fats and omega-3 fatty acids and helps keep you fuller for longer. The raisins are packed with energy, full of fibre, vitamins, minerals and they add that lovely natural sweetness. Although they are rich in calories, eaten in moderate amounts is good for health. Pumpkin … Continue reading Nutritious Oat and Nut Bars

Healthy Low Carb Carrot Walnut Loaf

This loaf is super healthy and delicious. Great for breakfast or a snack and its tastes amazing with a smear of butter on it. This can also be made into muffins. The addition of the yoghurt gives that lovely moist consistency and the butter can be completely eliminated but I find the addition of that bit of butter does add to the flavour. Honey completely replacing the need for any refined sugar making it so much healthier. And the addition of almond flour reduces the amount of plain flour needed making this lower in carb content. This is a healthy … Continue reading Healthy Low Carb Carrot Walnut Loaf

Watermelon Banana Smoothie

I know that for those living in cooler parts of the world, having a cold smoothie may not be what you are feeling right now.

And this smoothie is a very tasty and refreshing drink that is ideal for warmer weather. This is one of those smoothies that is not much to look at but tastes so so yum. It is quick to make, great for a quick breakfast or an after-school filler. It just needs four ingredients – … Continue reading Watermelon Banana Smoothie

Pumpkin Loaf

Although thanksgiving is not an Australian celebration, I still love making recipes that incorporate pumpkin around this time. A few years ago, my neighbours were from America and they introduced me to a lot of thanksgiving foods and so I always think about making some pumpkin related recipes around this time in memory of the wonderful time I had with them. Homemade pumpkin bread has become a family favourite. It is so easy to make and is packed with pumpkin flavour. I have always made this using homemade pumpkin puree. I use butternut pumpkin which is chopped up and cooked … Continue reading Pumpkin Loaf

Easy Low Carb Almond Loaf

This is a healthy, quick and easy Almond Loaf. I use almond meal instead of plain flour which reduces the carb content and I use honey instead of sugar, making it so much healthier. If you are new to low-carb baking, using almond meal is quite easy to begin with. But you have to remember that unlike regular flour, almond flour does not hold its structure as well because of the absence of gluten. The eggs added provide that structure, air for fluffiness and some protein as well. I have not used any butter or oil in it. I wanted … Continue reading Easy Low Carb Almond Loaf

Scrumptious Stuffed Omelette

This easy to make fluffy and filling omelette is great for breakfast or brunch. This recipe is ideal if you want to cut down on carbs as it is quite filling on its own and you can skip on eating bread along with it. I made this after church on Sunday for brunch and my son ‘inhaled’ his meal with a glass of milk. I had mine at a more sedate and civilised pace with a lovely cup of tea. Filled with red onions, green peppers and any left-over meat or sausages adds amazing flavour to this dish. You can … Continue reading Scrumptious Stuffed Omelette
