Gluten-Free Morning Glory Muffins

Gluten-Free Morning Glory Muffins

Muffins are delicious. There is no two ways around it. But one of the reasons that they are so delicious is that they are effectively cake – not so healthy. The traditional muffin recipe is loaded with white flour and lost of sugar, making it pretty poor breakfast or snack option. The Morning Glory Muffin is my absolute favourite muffin, it’s pretty much loaded with everything but the kitchen sink and makes a real satisfying snack. Legend has it, the Original Morning Glory Muffin &nbsp […]

Chia Smoothie Recipe

Banana Chai Smoothie

Chai is one of my favourite spice mixtures; spicy, rich and warming, it makes a delicious tea, latte or addition to any flavourful dessert. Unfortunately, store bought lattes and smoothies are often made with chai syrup, loaded with added sweeteners and sugars making it a unhealthy option. Fortunately, with the mixture of a few simple spices, you can create your own anti-inflammatory chai blend at home, and this creamy chai smoothie really satisfies a sweet tooth! Chai Spi […]

This broccoli salad provides a nice big crunch while providing a daily dose of greens and satisfies that creamy craving. This recipe can be eaten right away or prepared ahead of time and stored in the fridge all […]

Thai Red Prawn Curry

A little something I like to call – “Curry in a Hurry”. Curry paste is one of the few condiments I like to keep in my fridge for a quick and tasty dinner.

green breakfast bowl

Green Breakfast Bowl

Last February John and I went to Australia for a glorious 2 week vacation. I was really excited about going for a little sun, fun, activity and relaxation, but after visiting I can say that the trip blew my expectation out of the water. (No pun intended, it is an island after all.) I figured it would have a healthy vibe; you know fit surfers walking around drinking Foster’s and BBQ’ing,  but still somehow managing to have a 6-pack!?! Well, it turns out that is only partially true. People we […]
