One of the things I get asked most often by people who are wanting to get a little healthier or lose weight is for snack ideas. Much to my husband’s amusement, I need to snack! He was always a three-large-meals-a-day type of person, so he finds it funny that I have to pack snacks before we go out anywhere, and how I suggest we stop for morning tea whenever we’re out sightseeing. Personally, I find that if I have morning and afternoon tea I can avoid getting to the point

Every healthy foodie has got their signature way of doing homemade granola, so I thought it was about time I shared mine! I love to eat granola with Greek yoghurt and either a grated apple, sliced banana or berries.

I had my first Reece’s Peanut Butter Cup when travelling around America in 2012. It was love at first taste! This healthy version tastes just as yummy as the original, but they are actually good for you! Plus, like anything I make in the kitchen, they are very simple and quick! Due to the high fat content, they are a bit of a

If you still haven’t heard of ‘proats’, let me fill you in. Basically, proats are where you combine oats with protein powder and an endless combination of other delicious and nutrient-packed goodies. Instead of cooking your oats like you would in making porridge, you just soak them in the fridge for at least an hour, or overnight, hence the name! There’s

I love chocolate! It’s definitely my favourite sweet food, so I’ve tried a lot of different chocolate cake recipes!  Here are my favourite three. Enjoy!

  1. Mr I’s “Far Too Easy” Chocolate Cake.

What I like about it? It tastes amazing and is so easy! I can’t imagine how it could be any easier or quicker to make a cake from scratch. I always serve it without icing, but with cashew cream (see the link on the recipe page).

I usually have this for breakfast once a week. You can substitute the fruit for whatever is in season and get creative with your toppings! Chia pudding is a great balance of carbohydrates, protein, fats and vitamins. It will give you a great start to your day and keep you full for many hours.
