Skinny Soup!

I think half of Emerald are eating this soup at the moment! With Hoffy’s Intensity Weight Loss Challenge No. 1 on its last week,  most of the challengers are having this regularly, plus some of my clients always tend to go back to this recipe as it’s so damn easy, plus tasty and super healthy….

CHICKEN, LEMON AND COCONUT SOUP (with Thermomix adaptation)

This is an adaptation to Quirky Jo’s soup, but I’ve made it FODMAPS friendly and added in the brown rice/almond meal blend that is an awesome, nutritious way to thicken soups, increase their protein and make them more manly! Coconut milk, especially the organic brands, have anti – viral properties, so are a good food…

Turkish Delight Bliss Balls

  I’m a bit obsessed with rosewater at the moment, since adding it to my Berry Kombucha so  I thought I’d make up a Turkish Delight Bliss Ball recipe. These balls didn’t last very long in our house, even my girls loved the rosewater flavour. Rosewater is good for the skin too which is a…

Best Pumpkin Soup Ever

I know its a big call, but this is a seriously good soup and super easy to make. Like most people, I’m a pumpkin soup lover, especially when the weather turns as it has. My problem with pumpkin soup, is that it has very little protein in it, so I find I’m hungry an hour…

Choc Banana Mousse

This recipe seriously takes 5 minutes; it’s got 2 x serves of fruit in it and is refined sugar free. I got it from the lovely Kat, and it’s a great one to use for overripe bananas if you don’t have time to make banana bread.  My kids inhaled it which is good, as I am…

Chicken, Sweet Potato and Turmeric Soup

  We’re officially more than half way through Winter, sing alleluia to that, especially on a day like today! This soup is actually quite high in protein with the chicken, almond meal and coconut milk. It’s gluten and dairy free and absolutely delicious. The almond meal also makes it quite thick and a little bit…

Caffeine Kick Start

I love caffeine….the stronger the better! It gets me pumped for the day, it makes me think clearer, plus surprisingly its good for blood pressure in the right moderation. This is one of my breakfast options in my new spring cleansing weight loss and wellness program. It’s easy to make, and kindve like breakfast and…

Festive Salad with lemon dressing

This salad looks festive with most ingredients in it red and green and the golden nuts. The prefect salad to have at the Christmas dinner table with either meat or seafood, and the lemon dressing helps cut through the fat of the meat. It looks impressive and is pretty healthy too. I made it for…

Toasted Pumpkin, Avocado and Mint salad

High in fibre and B vitamins, combined with the protein of the walnuts,  this salad is filling. The dressing is what makes it though; hardly original, but this dressing goes with everything! If having for dinner, serve with a bit of grilled fish or chicken for a low fat, healthy meal. 1 cup brown and…

Gut healing Chicken Bone Broth
