Here is my recipe for a super quick and easy veggie-packed family meal which is also very budget friendly if you’re trying to cut back on your weekly grocery bill. I make it gluten free by using gluten free pasta, breadcrumbs and plain flour.

Turkey Chilli Con Carne

Updated June 2018.
Originally first published July 2015.

I’ve now been home from my North America holiday for three weeks and if there’s one thing I miss it’s Chilli Con Carne! It was available everywhere in Canada and America! This recipe is how I like to make my turkey version of Chilli Con Carne. I love to make it for dinner served with lots of steamed veggies. The leftovers are delicious for lunch the next day. It’s a lovely hot comfort food, perfect for us Aussies who are right now in the heart of winter.

Choc Berry Yoghurt in a Jar

This is a delicious and nutritious snack I really look forward to. I love how low calorie this is yet so satisfying and filling. When I first came up with this winning combo, I ate it every single day at work for three weeks straight! I also ate it a lot in the weeks leading up to my bikini competition as it kept me full despite being in a calorie deficit.

Roasted Vegetable & Chicken Pasta

This recipe is a much healthier version of pasta. It is packed with vegetables and lean protein with just a small amount of pasta. I believe if you are exercising regularly it is not necessary to exclude pasta and other starchy carbohydrates such as bread from your diet all together. They just need to be eaten in moderation. This is a lovely quick weeknight dinner and the leftovers are perfect for lunch the next day (hm I tend to say that a lot on my recipe posts, I am a clear fan of time efficiency!)

Clean Moussaka

Hello! 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 program ‘Lean & Well’. All my new recipe creations have been going into the recipe section of the program. 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,

Ideas for Rice Cake Toppings

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

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

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.

Spring Rolls

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.

Prawn and Chorizo Salad

Prawn-and-chorizo-salad

Unfortunately, one of the food aversions I have developed since being pregnant is salads. I really don’t find them appealing at the moment! So, I have been trying to find ways to make salad more exciting so I can get some antioxidant and vitamin rich vegetables into me (and my baby)! My sister recently told me about a delicious salad she had at a cafe so I tried to recreate it and it turned out pretty tasty!
