Meal Prep Protein Pancakes

Have you gotten around to trying Instagram-famous protein pancakes? If you haven’t, I’d advise you to drop everything and quickly whip up this super easy and macronutrient-balanced breakfast recipe! And if that’s a little inconvenient at the present moment, I’d suggest pinning it for later (and follow my page while you’re at it!). Protein pancakes are almost too good to be true. They have the same texture, feel and taste as the ones made with white flour, chunks of butter and refined sugar. Sure, traditional pancakes make a fantastic treat, but they probably contain a few too many empty calories…

Sweet potato crusted quiche

Were you under the impression that quiche is an “unhealthy” meal? Although I don’t like to label many things as strictly healthy or unhealthy, for a long time quiche was something I wouldn’t eat a lot of. If I was eating out and saw quiche on the menu, it would automatically fall into my mental list of foods to be eaten only in moderation. Quiche is a bit of a family affair for me. It was probably one of my first introductions to the idea of meal prep as a child. Both my parents made variations when I was growing up.…

17 recipes to sneak more vegetables into breakfast

In my personal experience, I’ve come to realise that just about every aspect of your life improves when you begin to eat more vegetables. Not only are vegetables usually low in energy (calories) and super filling, they also offer a myriad of nutrients including micronutrients and fibre. If you’re one of those people that loves to have giant salads and green smoothies for every meal, you might find it easy to eat plenty of vegetables. But you are definitely the minority. Although there are a number of delicious vegetable types (sweet potato omg), they’re rarely people’s favourite thing to eat. One handy…

Healthy blender banana pancakes

Pancakes have to be one of the best breakfast foods around. My fond memories of pancakes go back a long way. It was my favourite breakfast to eat at my grandparent’s house when I was a kid. My grandma would cook the most fluffy, melt-in-your-mouth pancakes that were almost dripping in butter. While they were sizzling in the pan and defusing their delicious smell throughout the house, my brother and I would walk out into the paddock and pick lemons to juice. I think the only nutritional saving grace from this story is that the lemons were homegrown and organic,…

21 healthy breakfast recipes that are good enough for dessert

Busy mornings can make it easy to get stuck in a breakfast rut with the same routine meal losing its appeal after you eat it day in, day out. For an entire year of high school, I ate Weetbix (or Weetabix for my British friends) cereal before school. Every. Single. Day. Without fail, I started the morning with two Weetbix, milk and brown sugar. It’s been 7 years and I’ve only just been able to start enjoying them again. I must admit, 2009 was a breakfast rut for me. But it was the year I began eating breakfast for the first…

Banana Probiotic Smoothie Bowl

If you’ve ever been on social media or to a trendy cafe (or even visited this blog), you’re probably well aware of the concept of a smoothie bowl. Basically, you make a thick, icy smoothie, pour it into a bowl, and decorate it with various goodies, think nuts, fruit, grains, coconut flakes, seeds etc, to improve the flavour, appearance and nutrition. The combinations are endless! Before I began studying nutrition, my smoothie bowls were delicious, but not overly healthy. I would copy a recipe for a beautiful smoothie bowl I found on a random Instagram page that called for 3…

Pumpkin Cinnamon No-oats 

Grains: a food source that has kept the population fed and satisfied since the beginning of agriculture. They’re basically the reason humans have been able to survive and prosper for as long as we have. Because let’s be honest, the poor and huddled masses in history weren’t surviving off grass-fed organic rib-eye steak. They ate bread, potatoes, legumes and whatever else was easy to farm. History aside, there appears to be a whole lotta’ mixed opinions emerging about grains. Some people can’t get enough grains (the vegetarians) and others refuse to touch the stuff (looking at you Paleo folk). Personally,…

31 healthy breakfast ideas you can eat on the go.

Constructing a healthy day is kind of like building a house. You have to start with a good foundation. A house with a crappy foundation isn’t going to last long, just like a healthy day with a not-so-healthy breakfast. But if you fuel your body with the good stuff right from the start, you’ll find it much easier to make healthier eating choices all day long. But sometimes, finding the time to fit in a healthy, balanced breakfast can be a struggle for busy ladies such as ourselves. This is where meal prepping can make the difference between starting off…

Apple pie oatmeal

I think I’ve finally found a breakfast recipe that I could eat every day. Day in, day out, I’m down for this apple pie oatmeal recipe. The combination of apple, cinnamon, and maple syrup has to be one of the best I’ve found. Constructing a healthy day is kind of like building a house. You have to start with a good foundation. A house with a crappy foundation isn’t going to last long, just like a healthy day with a not-so-healthy breakfast.

No-fail homemade cashew butter.

I was always too afraid to make my own nut butter. I thought it would unnecessarily messy, expensive and would take hours. I mean, nuts aren’t the cheapest ingredient in the first place, so I wanted a no-fail way to make nut butter before I even considered giving it a shot. Then I read about other bloggers making nut butter with blenders, and I figured surely it couldn’t be that difficult. After a few batches, I found cashews were by far the easiest of the nut types to turn into butter. I found pulsing the nuts into small pieces to…
