Raspberry & coconut portion balls

I love a good bliss ball and have recently started adding some protein to them to help keep me fuller for longer and I’m loving it. I am using whole foods protein powder which is a pea based protein and vegan friendly so I’m loving it (I’m not vegan but a huge veggie fan!). I picked up the raspberry oil in the local health shop and love it as an addition to raw recipes.

These can be whipped up in 15 minutes from start to finish so pop net flick on the laptop and get blending :).

Sesame bars

These sesame bars are quick, easy & super delicious. I have them in the freezer at the minute as a grab & go option for my morning workouts and I love them!! Loaded with goodness they are a great energy bar or snack option loaded with protein, fibre & natural sugar.

These can be moulded into a bar or bliss ball and stored in the freezer for up to 2 months in an airtight container so there is no waist :).

raw truffles

Raw truffles- that taste like ferrero rocher!

These were whipped up by accident but taste too delicious not to share this quick and east recipe. The secret behind the ferrero flavour is from the Mayvers cocao superseed spread so if you can’t find this use another cocao nut butter and please do let me know how you go and which one you used so others can try the same :).  These were whipped up in 5 minutes and will stay fresh in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days.

beetroot dip

Beetroot hummus

I am loving a good hummus or dip at the moment! I have a huge love for fresh sourdough from our local french bakery these days and always need a good dip, some cured meats, cheeses and olives to go with it so needless to say.. I have a glass of red on the side :P. This beetroot dip is a result of a recent picnic trip to Rottnest for James’ birthday where I was that creep who brought a selection of healthy foods for the weekend instead of just buying them there. I honestly can’t eat pre-bought dips and sauces though, I can taste the additives in them and I mean you’d spend more time choosing a dip in the shop than you will whipping this up.  You do need a food processor for this one and I used the ninja for the first time and got the smoothest hummus ever so I highly recommend that! This will last for up to 5 days in an airtight container in the fridge, serve it with some fresh bread, crackers, crudites and cheeses and enjoy!

broccoli and tahini salad

Broccoli salad with creamy tahini dressing

Broccoli is my favourite vegetable; loaded with vitamin C it makes for the perfect addition to any meal. This salad is a delicious mix of flavours, super easy to whip up and loaded with goodness. We all know we should ‘eat our greens’ and I am constantly looking at different ways to incorporate them into my diet and this 10 minute salad is the perfect grab and go lunchbox salad or side dish to a main protein. This recipe will feed 4 people as part of a side salad or 2 for a main dish.

Tip;  When I am cooking with broccoli I always keep the stalks to juice them as part of my green juice for the following morning or you can thinly slice the stalks and saute it into a stir fry!
