Chocolate porridge? Count me in!

I love chocolate. So chocolate for breakfast? In a form that’s healthy? Sign. Me. Up. I have followed NutritionStripped on instagram for a little while and have been bookmarking a few recipes to try. Well today was the day, but it wasn’t one I had bookmarked! Seeking breakfast inspiration, I just went to the website…

The Bliss Balls that Really are Blissful

How good are bliss balls? They really are the perfect snack. Portable. Easy to make. Tasty (well, usually). Nutritious (again – usually). What’s not to love? We are a bliss ball house. My husband makes a batch every fortnight. I don’t like his ones – he adds protein powder and to me it tastes like…

Could I be a Rice Pudding Convert??

I have never been a rice pudding fan. It’s not one of those “comforting dishes that mum used to cook” for me. She was more a packet mix chocolate self-saucing pudding mum. Or ice-cream wafer sandwiches. So when I was advised to start having more brown rice in my diet, rice pudding certainly wasn’t what…

Chocolate mug cake

I think making a single serve cake is a necessity for me. My appetite gets way out of control some times, so if I made an entire chocolate cake with all the best intentions of only eating one slice – there’s no way I’d stop at just one slice. I know full well that by…

Cauliflower pizza bases – say wha…???

Yes you read that right – cauliflower pizza bases! Hard to believe right? To be honest, the first time we tried these I was very skeptical. Who wants pizza that tastes like cauliflower? Not me… Don’t get me wrong, I like cauliflower as a vegetable. Or it makes a great alternative to rice. But pizza?…

Fluffy Paleo Pancakes

YUM. I think these are the best Paleo pancakes I’ve tried. And I have tried a LOT. These ones are from Lexi’s Clean Kitchen. She’s a bit fabulous and I’m enjoying trying a lot of her recipes at the moment. I had heard of her a while ago but for some reason she kind of…

“Best ever” fluffy waffles – are they or aren’t they???

As you know, I’ve been reviewing a few waffle recipes since I found my waffle iron hiding at the back of the cupboard a couple of months ago. You can read about my other waffle experiences here and here. My next review in my great waffle trial (or whatever I’ve been naming it? I think…

“The best pork I’ve ever eaten”

My brother is a bit of a foodie. Any visits to his house always include some kind of three course gourmet meal which never disappoints. So when he and his wife came to our place for dinner, I knew I had to serve something fabulous. Only catch was, my husband’s family also came for dinner,…

The great waffle showdown, round 2

So, I posted about my rekindled love affair with waffles here. I’m trying to make my way through all of the waffle recipes on paleOMG.com – man that girl loves waffles! These are the second waffles I’ve tried from her website. The first ones were a hit! So my hopes for these Paleo Kitchen Pumpkin…

Crispy Paleo Chicken Nuggets

Why do toddlers insist on building up their parents’ sense of security, only to tear it to shreds the next day? My 2 year old will eat everything put in front of him – veggies, fruit, fish, chicken, beef, pork. Some days… Then other days, all he wants is toast and sultanas. So, I make a…

My waffle journey begins…

I bought a waffle iron about 15 years ago, and I haven’t used for about the past 10 of those years! On the weekend we had a garage sale to get rid of some old furniture and baby items, so I went through the kitchen cupboards to see what appliances I could sell. Well, there…

Spiced Breakfast Muffins

I’ll be honest, pretty much everything I’ve cooked from http://www.wellnourished.com.au has hit the mark. And these spiced breakfast muffins are no exception! Firstly, they are healthy. A big tick for me, considering I’m studying Nutritional and Dietetic medicine. These muffins are grain free, gluten free and dairy free. But they certainly are not lacking in flavour,…
