Make your friend’s day by “baking it forward” and sharing a treat with them. This delicious health banana bread is a guaranteed crowd pleaser. Indulge by adding chocolate chips or add mixed nuts for an extra crunch.
Here’s a little inspiration for a 15 minute “throw together” option. Just make sure you have a nice balance of the following: Protein, veg, healthy fat, carb and some spice. Salads or “power bowls” are all the rage and perfect excuse to combine and use up left overs.
Sydney is amazing – I absolutely love my new home. The city is so beautiful it almost hurts your eyes. The people are so wonderful I feel like I’m part of their family. And the healthy and active lifestyle is right up my alley. I’ve turned into a coffee snob, built an incredible network of dear friends, became addicted to green brekkie bowls (recipes to come!), and found love on the other side of the world. What more could a girl ask for?
Forget the fact that it’s well past Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas and even New Year’s. My love affair with pumpkin is here to stay. When cooler weather arrives there is nothing better than a big pot of chili. This is the perfect healthy (hello, Vitamin A) and hearty dish with a creamy thickness from the pumpkin that is oh-so-savory!
This is my take on the most traditional meal to eat on New Years Day. I subbed the ham/pork for turkey sausage to keep it a bit healthier, but it is equally comforting, delicious, and a satisfying way to bring on the new year.
This is my version of Indian Garam Masala in the most simplified way possible. If your trying to warm your soul (or clear your sinuses) on this cold winter day than this is the recipe for you!
When I was home for the holidays I found my version of gold tucked away in the cupboard above the microwave – our family recipe box full of stained cards with annotations. Heirloom recipes are treasures in our house. Imitation is the best form of flattery (right?), so I figured it was about time I dug into these recipes from my grandmother’s kitchens…. Classics, some simple, others complex, but most importantly, passed down. I’m starting with Mia Mia’s (mom’s mom) Ham Soufflé.
It’s tradition in the Nelson household to start the carbs early on holiday mornings. For Thanksgiving it’s always pumpkin waffles. However, by the time Christmas rolls around, we are usually craving them all over again. In my mind, the perfect holiday breakfast includes all the delicious flavor of pumpkin pie in waffle form.
