My herbed ricotta and lentil penne pasta is oh so creamy and delicious! It’s a recipe that’s not only healthy and good for your gut health but also one of my favourite vegetarian meal prep recipes. It’s packed with protein, fibre and wholegrain, healthy carbs to keep you nourished and full all afternoon long. Comment below if you make it and let me know what you think!
Who loves pasta night?! Well you guys are in for a treat today as I have a super delicious and gut healthy recipe for you!
This recipe is not only super easy and healthy but it’s packed full of plant based ingredients to nourish your gut! I used the spiral chickpea San Remo pasta range which is packed full of gut loving fibre & protein but you can honestly use any type of pulse pasta (eg. chickpea pasta, lentil pasta). I love using the pulse pastas in dishes as they are super high in protein and fibre compared to regular wheat based pasta and they are also gluten free for anyone with Coeliac Disease.
Hop tip: Did you know that when you cook & cool pasta it creates resistance starch which feeds the good bacteria in your gut and can help strengthen the lining of your gut too! This is the same for any type of pasta (including wheat pasta) and also rice and potato! Listen to Leanne’s podcast for more gut health knowledge bombs.

I whipped up this easy, healthy meal prep friendly Mexican chicken lunches on the weekend to show you guys that healthy eating doesn’t have to be boring or tasteless! They took less than 30 minutes to make and are packed full of protein, fibre and complex carbs to keep you feeling full and nourished! If you don’t like chicken, sub it for tofu, fish or another protein source. Definitely don’t skimp on the lime, it honestly makes this dish SO good!
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.
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.
