Rice paper rolls – think outside the box with lots of ideas for delicious fillings

I often make rice paper rolls, also known as fresh spring rolls.  Mainly because my kids absolutely love them and they are a quick, easy and healthy lunch box filler or snack.   I also  find them a great way to use up leftovers.  They  replace the humble sandwich which is great for moderating the Read More

Asian lettuce cups

This is such an easy to make,  healthy dish with lots of fresh Asian flavours.  Children also love putting it together so let them choose a lettuce cup, fill and roll it themselves.  I’ve even had children over who generally refuse to eat salad, happily eat this, lettuce and all!

Kind words…

“I downloaded your ebooks after hearing you speak at the Health and Wellness Summit in Melbourne. Love them, life changing… Don’t stop! Thank you for getting the whole food message out there, I certainly heard it.” Melanie

“I love your ebooks, I have all three of them now and they are now my only go to receipe books. They are simple, wholesome and taste great. THANK YOU!!! I have spent alot of money on courses about healthy eating and recipe books but your books have covered it all and my little man enjoys the snacks etc. Wish I would have found you earlier “. Brooke

“I just want to say a huge thank you for your amazing website and information. I’ve never liked cooking and never got excited by my ‘healthy’ cooking. My husband is even worse and if he could, he would just eat beacon and eggs every morning and steak every night. He hardly ate any veggies. Since I found your website I have gone through almost every recipe. My husband is loving every meal as well – even meat free Monday, and he’s taking left-overs to work for lunch (honestly, who thought that could be so hard?!)” Rose

“You have truly helped me and my family to lead a healthier lifestyle. I’ve been referring to your page every few days, very inspiring, so thank you!” Emily

“I just wanted to let you know that you have absolutely inspired me to a better way of eating, I’ve been making my shopping lists based on recipes you’ve shared and am educating my kids with the reasons behind different foods and why they are good etc! This page has become my little bible hehe! Thank you so much for all the detail you give. It’s absolutely wonderful!” Sky
