I don’t even think there is enough words in the english language to express the love and obsession I have for salads. A salad that’s full of healthy, fresh ingredients, that not only satisfies the tastebuds but fills you up and gives you energy - SIGN ME UP!
I’ve always felt a little weird about sharing my salad ‘recipes’ though; I think my brain doesn’t agree its a recipe because it’s so simple and just random things thrown in a bowl together, but now that I say that out loud, I see that I was being silly because these salad recipes are too good not to share.
I have a few go to salads lately, including this super easy, super tasty asian inspired crispy tofu and pickled ginger salad. I’ve become obsessed with the convenience of pre-shredded/julienned (matchsticks) vegetables because they make salads like these so easy to make. If you’re not a fan of pre-packeted vegetables (which I totally understand) but you want to have the convenience of being able to whip up a salad like this in no time, I recommend prepping a large amount of whatever vegetables you want at that start of the week so you’ve got them ready to go in the fridge every time you make a new salad - aka, everyday, sometimes twice a day in my house.
There is something so perfect about a bowl full of so many different flavours, textures and colours that makes this human oh so happy! This recipe is really easy to make and full of really healthy ingredients which I love!
The toppings I've listed are my go-to's, but as with most of my recipes you can tailor them to add any ingredients you like. Enjoy the little extra colour this dish will add to your day beautiful humans!
I always consider and refer to myself as a 'savoury person', so the thought of baking or making sweet treats doesn't usually appeal to me... however, I have recently embarked on a self made life makeover challenge including eating a paleo-based diet (I've documented every day how I feel on my YouTube channel which you can see here). With this new way of eating, I have found myself craving bread-like foods (not sure if that makes sense, but in my head it sounds right), so, the idea of having some bread-ish fluffy pancakes all of a sudden sounded like the best idea. I've used Clean Lean Choc powder in this recipe, which is a healthy chocolate powder full of the good stuff! Perfect for when you want that chocolate-y flavour but still want to kick your health goals.
With no refined sugar, only five ingredients and being vegan friendly, these protein balls will be lucky to last a few minutes in anyones household! You can change the flavour depending on what flavour protein you use and by subbing out the cacao for a different flavour. I've used cacao and salted caramel in these photos to get two different flavours and they were both amazing!
I’m loving creating meat free versions of my old school fave recipes and this is another delicious winner! I serve mine with zucchini pasta since the lentils and beans are so filling but you could easily serve yours with pasta if you want more of a traditional spag bol. Another amazing bonus about this meal is it is unbelievably cheap to make, so going meat-free won’t break the bank with this one!
There’s no denying crispy skin salmon is one of the greatest things in life, like, ever! I wanted to create a summer salad that is light and refreshing but still filling and super delicious. For me, salmon was the perfect option for this. Now just add this easy-peasy salad to whip up and you’ll be the star chef at every family gathering.
Crispy skin salmon is one of my favourite things to eat for so many reasons. I only started eating salmon a few years ago and the first way I tried it was with crispy skin and I was hooked straight away! Since then I have converted non-salmon eaters to die-hard salmon fans with this simple recipe. One of the best things about crispy skin salmon is you can serve it with almost anything! My favourite ways are in an Asian style soup or with a plate of lightly sautéed vegetables.
There is something so fun about rolling up delicious, healthy ingredients to make a flavour packed roll. I have a real obsession with rice paper rolls, but one day I thought to myself ‘what else can I use instead of rice paper?’. This thought combined with an old favourite of mine – ginger chicken mince – made this creation.
Let's be honest, who doesn't love a good platter these days? I know I am a sucker for a good platter paired with the perfect wine and these three dips - olive, beetroot and roast pumpkin hummus - are perfect for any platter. They are also great to use as a dip for carrot/celery sticks as a healthy snack during the week.
This healthy version of spaghetti meatballs is packed with so much flavor and so easy to make! The kangaroo is a great way to get some extra red meat in your diet, while the zucchini allows for more veggies and less starchy-carbs that you would get with traditional spaghetti meatballs.
