Mexican Minestrone

Loaded with vegetables and plant powered fibre, my next twist on Jamie Oliver’s “10 recipes to save your life” is a Mexican Minestrone. It may be a soup, but trust me this is no starter!

Zucchini, Mint, Feta Soup (in just ten minutes)

Zucchini mint feta soup

One vegetable my kids really dislike is zucchini (or spew-kini as they like to call it). For those of you who have followed me for a while, you’ll know that my kids have a great appetite for whole foods and genuinely love a wide range of vegetables. One of the reasons this is the case is because Read More

Beetroot, Coconut and Ginger soup

I find the human palate an amazing thing – some people just eat anything that’s put in front of them and others are a little more discerning (sounds so much more classy than ‘fussy’). You might be surprised that I actually fit into the second category here. With age, I’ve certainly broadened my culinary horizons – Read More

Simple Sweet Corn Soup (a nourishing twist on this favourite)

As a kid, one of my favourite takeaway meals was Chinese. It was the 70’s and Chinese food was as fancy as it got in my young world. Even though it is probably my least favourite cuisine nowadays, one dish that conjures up all sorts of childhood memories is Sweetcorn Soup. It just so happens Read More

Cauliflower Cheese Soup (with a dairy free option)

This is a delicious creamy soup – a real taste sensation! Whilst the main recipe does contain cheese, I have also created an equally delicious dairy free version too (below). “Cauliflower is nothing but a cabbage with a college education” Mark Twain Why is it so good? Like it’s other cruciferous cousins, cauliflower is a rich Read More

Winter Minestrone soup

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
