Clean Moussaka

It’s been a while since I’ve posted a recipe on the blog – sorry! The reason is I’ve been working very hard on my fitness and wellness guide ‘Lean & Well’. All my new recipe creations have been going it to the recipe section of the guide. However I thought it was about time I shared a new recipe with you all, plus this moussaka has had a lot of requests when I’ve posted me making it on social media.

I’ll warn you that this takes a while to make, about 90

A Powerful Message for Anyone Seeking to Become Healthier and Lose Weight

Recently I had a friend, let me call her Ruby, who shared with me something I found very inspiring which I just had to share with you all. Ruby has recently turned her life around. Over the past year she has lost 50 kilos! When Ruby had a health scare and decided enough is enough, it’s time to change once and for all, she didn’t take the gradual, gentle approach to changing her lifestyle. No. she took the way-out-of-her-comfort-zone, make some dramatic and hard changes approach. A lot of trainers (myself included)

Ideas for rice cake toppings

For me if lunch is not leftovers from dinner and it’s not a simple salad, then its usually rice cakes. I like that compared to a sandwich you can get into your body more ‘good bits’ like veggies, protein and good fats and less starchy carbs (three rice cakes contains the amount of carbohydrates equivalent to one slice of bread). Here are some of my favourite combos:

  1. Cream cheese,  tomato and avocado
  2. Cream cheese, tomato and basil leaves
  3. Avocado, turkey and tomato
  4. Roast beef, crisp lettuce and cheese
  5. Ham, cheese and tomato
  6. Smashed avocado, cheese

The Problem with the Meal plans in most bikini body guides

As it is the beginning of the year I have observed a lot of people following an online fitness and nutrition plan, usually a downloadable ebook or an app. I think this is great! For the cost of one personal training session you can buy an entire 12 weeks worth of workouts. I have personally over the years enjoyed trying programs by Kayla Itsines, Ashy Bines, Jamie Eason and Emily Skye. Even though I’m a trainer I always love trying a different trainer’s

If you’re eating healthy, exercising regularly and living a healthy lifestyle but still can’t lose weight, chances are that your portions are too large. If tracking everything you eat in an app isn’t something you’ve got time for, here are some tips to help you be less hungry and eat less:

  • Drink a minimum of 3L water a day. Thirst is often mistaken for hunger.
  • Exercise at a moderate to high intensity three times a week. This intensity of exercise regulates your appetite control hormones (gherlin and leptin). It only needs to be

Quick & Clean Fried Rice

Quick and clean fried rice

This is a great meal to make for your weekly meal prep. I love to cook this up for dinner one night and then divide the leftovers into containers for my me and my husband to eat for lunch for the next three days. Eight meals is definitely worth spending 45 minutes in the kitchen for! Traditional Chinese fried rice can be a bit of a fat and carb bomb, so I designed this fried rice recipe to have plenty of vegetables and protein, and only a moderate amount of

Vanilla Latte Smoothie Bowl

This is the perfect pick-me-up for breakfast, morning tea or afternoon tea! The banana and coffee gives you a great energy boost. You also receive a good dose of protein from the protein powder to keep you feeling full for longer. The cinnamon will help stabilise your blood sugar levels and the chia seeds and greek yoghurt give you a nice healthy serve of good fats.

Healthy Spring Rolls

Spring rolls are such a light, healthy and fresh lunch or dinner. I used to be daunted at the thought of making them, thinking they would be too time-consuming and fiddly. They’re actually quite simple and don’t require much effort. I absolutely love eating them, so that’s strong motivation to take the time to make them, too! This recipe makes four serves so I love to make them up at dinner time and have the leftovers for lunch the next day.

My Top Healthy Eats in Perth & Surrounds

I’ve realised after doing a lot of travelling overseas that we’re quite lucky to have so many healthy options for eating out in Perth. It is rare to find a cafe that doesn’t have any fresh juices, smoothies and a few raw treats available, therefore, I had to be quite ruthless with this list. It contains only the cafes that I think strive to offer the majority of items on their menu as ‘healthy’, rather than just having a small selection.

1. Health Freak Cafe, Mount Lawley, Scarborough and Joondalup

Price for breakfast: $10.50 – $23
Price for a smoothie: $10
