Plant based meals or #meatlessmonday are a great way to add more nutrients in to your diet and help reduce the carbon footprint. Most people either don’t like tofu or have never tried it but it is honestly one of the cheapest and easiest forms of protein to cook. It doesn’t really have a taste so it absorbs the flavours it’s cooked in. This is what makes the satay tofu so damn delicious! Even if you’re not vegetarian and just want to try a new meal for your meal prep this week, give this recipe a go because trust me, you can’t help but LOVE it! Even my meat eating partner loves it and begs me to make it for his lunches! Give it a go and I promise you won’t regret it! Ps.. it freezes really well too so make extras
This is my go-to easy, nourishing breakfast recipe. I make it for 2-3 days then leave it in the fridge overnight/ for a few days. You don’t need to cook the oats, just eat them cold in the morning. As the oats soak for an extended period of time, they are soft enough to eat uncooked in the morning. You can easily play with different flavour combinations such as chocolate protein and banana instead of the berries. Sometimes I grate a carrot in too and add some nutmeg and it tastes like carrot cake oats! The base I always use for my overnight oats is the oats, milk, chia and protein powder. The oats are wonderful carbs for energy and also a good source of soluble fibre, I try to keep the chia seeds in for healthy fats and fibre and the protein power provides additional protein to help support my muscle mass and keeps me feeling fuller for longer.
This has been my morning tea snack option for the past 2 weeks. I must admit, I’m obsessed! My slice is packed full of nourishing ingredients and has the perfect amount of fibre, protein and healthy fats to keep you feeling full all morning long. It makes quite a lot (32 slices in fact!) so perhaps half the amount the time first time if you don’t want that many slices. I really hope you enjoy it and if you do, please tag me on Instagram: @the_fitness_dietitian
I love nothing better than a warming curry but I hate how most takeaway versions are very high in calories and contain very little vegetables! My delicious and nourishing chicken turmeric curry is ideal for a healthy waistline, gut friendly and also packed full of extra fibre and nutrients from all my vegetables. This freezes really well for a quick and healthy dinner too! Leave me a comment and let me know what you think below!
I LOVE Mexican food and tacos are probably the highest on the list! I’m hoping you guys are just as excited about this delicious taco salad bowl as I am because not only is it healthy, it’s packed full of lean protein, fibre and healthy fats too which will keep you full for hours afterwards! I’ve made a few healthy subs in this recipe such as sour cream for natural YoPRO, beef mince for chicken mince and guacamole for plain avocado. Ask me any questions below and if you make it, tag me on Instagram @the_fitness_dietitian
You would all know from following my social media accounts that I am a HUGE fan of nuts as a snack, on top of meals and added into my baking. You simply can’t go past the healthy fats, fibre, protein and other vitamin and minerals contained in nuts. I get so many questions around which nut type is best however so I thought I would do a post below for you guys detailing the benefits of all 10 nuts. Hint: They are all brilliant in different ways so variety is always best.

Watch this space as sign ups will be opening VERY SOON but we just wanted to clarify a few things for you guys and get you as excited to launch as we (Angie and myself) are!
I have a rule that I live by: travel over seas at least once a year and this Bali was my destination. I have been to Bali a number of times before, but I was younger and I never took the time to travel the island, see the sights and take in the culture. This time I did the entire island, north, south, east and west.
For many years we thought that if you eat fat – you’d get fat. So we limited all types of fat, including the good ones. The latest research not only shows us that healthy fats are good for us – it also shows us that the heathy fats in nuts are associated with preventing weight gain. So to put it simply, yes nuts are high in fat but the good kind which can help manage our weight! Read on to find out how…
You may or may not be aware that I’m a bit of a travel bug. Most recently I took my partner to Melbourne for his birthday. We were only there for 4 days and made it our mission to pack as much of Melbourne as possible into that limited time. So without further ado, here is my Melbourne guide featuring my tips for the best Melbourne food and Melbourne’s must see places/ things to do.
