+ Healthy Savoury Snacks

Rainbow Cheese Crisps

Cheese and veggie crisps

I’m a sucker for good quality cheese. I really believe that like many whole foods, cheese is a victim of the food processing industry which has traded the natural ageing process (necessary to produce a food that supports digestion and health) for a ‘faster’ food which has come to cause problems for many. I especially Read More

Healthy Instant Noodles

Last week I wrote about snacking and listed some of my kids favourite after school snacks. You can catch up here. So this week I thought it appropriate that I share their absolute favourite snack – my healthy version of those awful, fake instant noodles (or noodle cups). Instant noodles are a perfect example of not Read More

Toasted Seaweed Chips

I was doing a bit of shopping after school a few months back and even though they’d had afternoon tea, my kids were moaning that they were still hungry. My kids tend to do this every time we’re shopping and they spot something they fancy. This time they’d spied some Nori Chips and seeing as they Read More

Homemade hot chips with salt and vinegar aioli

Today’s recipe is a simple one, but a goodie – it’s my take on hot chips with a little twist.  It is one of my kids favourite treats and I often cook up a batch for a snack on the weekend or to accompany the main meal mid week. Why are they healthy? I like Read More

Best Basil Pesto (and the healthiest)

The best basil pesto recipe going, and the most nourishing!  A bold statement I know but it is rather delicious and definitely has a more extensive nutritional profile than its (also healthy) traditional version.  It is gluten and grain free and I have also included dairy and nut-free variations too. So what makes this pesto Read More

Almonds – the ultimate snack (and three recipes)

Almonds are a delicious and highly nutritious food and you’ll see them feature in many of my recipes.  The health benefits of almonds are many.   Several studies have concluded that including almonds in your diet is protective against heart disease and diabetes.  Recent research has found that including a handful of almonds in the Read More

Hummus – much more than a dip!

This is my recipe for a deliciously healthy hummus, of course with some interesting variations and colours too.  There’s more to hummus than just a dip, so check out the variations below.  I like my hummus to have a creamy consistency, but if you prefer it a little course, then just process it less. What’s Read More

Coriander and lime pesto

This pesto is the best I’ve ever made, so I just had to share the recipe.  I found myself with a lot of coriander in the garden and my lime tree heavy with fruit.  So here’s what I made… a very seasonal, extremely healthy coriander and lime pesto. Whilst coriander pesto is a delicious, nutritious Read More

Sweet haloumi, lemon and hazelnuts

This haloumi recipe is a super fast, easy to make, nutritious snack or light lunch.  I always have a packet of haloumi in the fridge for a last minute lunch or a quick snack.  I sometimes make this for my kids for an after school snack too.  It’s so delicious and pretty, you can even make Read More

Cheese and seed crackers

This healthy cheese cracker recipe is  a really delicious,  savoury addition to any nourishing lunch box.  It’s impossible to buy a savoury cracker with this much nourishment and protein – add a few carrot sticks or other raw veggies and you have a perfectly delicious and nutritious morning or afternoon tea. So what’s so good Read More

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

“Thank you very much for your awesome website & facebook page posts, you have motivated & inspired me heaps!” Fiona

“Just discovered your site 3 weeks ago, its been a great help with kids lunches for back to school, thanks so much!” Ange

“What a fantastic blog filled with so many great recipes and information!” Carla

“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
