Kale and mushroom frittata 🌿 I know it looks very kaley, but it was definitely also very mushroomy, eggy and delicious. Inspired by a post @jamieoliver
put up recently, although I did mine a little differently. Recipe below ✌️
Back home after an amazing 16 days away in Italy 😊☹️mixed feelings! Happy to be home but sad it’s over. First dinner absolutely had to be salmon & salad. Needless to say we ate ALL the pasta and carbs when we were away. Absolutely zero regrets (it was so amazing) but happy to be back to our regular fresh and light faves 🍃 it was a solo dinner tonight as poor Gordo had to fly straight to Mongolia for work 😟 oven baked salmon with dill & lemon, plus a salad of rocket, spinach, baby toms, toasted pepitas & sunflower seeds, cucumber, avo & @meredithdairy
goats cheese, all drizzled with a heap of lemon 🍋 it’s no spaghetti alle vongole (my fave 😩) but it hit the spot 👌
Figgy chocolatey smoothies 🧡it’s going to reach 28 here today with only 2 weeks into spring! Enjoy your day whatever your up too. X #rawbar #coffsharbour
We had the best day today, learning how to make pasta (and other Italian classics) here in Rome 🍝 we shopped at the markets for the produce, cooked (and drank 😏), learnt SO much, and enjoyed the amazing 3 course meal we produced. Feeling so inspired and so excited to get into more Italian cooking when we get home 🙌 also, we would highly recommend @cookwithusinrome
💯 if you have a few days in Rome, definitely do it!
🌟Adaptogenic Popcorn!🌟This is the best, cheeziest, spiciest, punchiest, tastiest popcorn 🍿 and yes, it’s also adaptogenic. The secret herbal tonic ingredient is ‘he shou wu’ powder, a traditional Chinese medicine superstar. Here it’s teamed with nutritional yeast (hence delicious cheeziness), turmeric, garlic, cayenne...and added liberally to freshly popped corn. Yuuuum. This great recipe - and the he shou wu - is from Misty Day Plant Potions @mistydayplantpotions
(Misty’s website tells a cool story about he shou wu’s magical history, involving a dude who lives to 160, sires 19 kids & reverses his grey hair just by chowing down on this herb!)🌟 #veganpopcorn #popcorn #plantbasedlife #glutenfreelifestyle #glutenfree #nzfoodie #healthysnacks #herbalism #glutenfreevegan #veganfoodie #aucklandeats #coeliac #celiacdisease #thrivemags #glutenfreeliving #gfree #glutenfreeforlife #glutenfreefollowme #glutenfreefoodie #plasticfreefoodie #foodiesoftheworld #snackwell #thevegansclub #healthycuisines #iqsjerf #veganfoodporn

Chocolate Fudge Doughnuts with Almond Butter Glaze 🖤we are having the most beautiful rain at the moment...I’m so grateful! #rawbar #coffsharbour
Loving this warming beef & veggie chilli lunch on a wet grey day! Made a triple batch of this last weekend for the freezer so it was a quick tea last night with leftovers for my lunch today #winning
Batch cooking when you can makes it so much easier to eat healthy when your pushed for time. I’ve been adding lots of veggies to chillis recently so that it’s half veg half meat. This time I used grated carrots & courgettes, red peppers, red lentils and kidney beans as well as 2 tins chopped tomatoes. So good 👌

This guy though, Happy Father’s Day Dad, without us it would just be another boring day, your welcome!☺️💕 #fathersday #forthemems
What a way to start the day 👅💦 that colour! I made this for Gordo yesterday when he got home from an overnight flight. The perfect breaky to shake off the red eye dustiness 🙃This fresh little mix is mango, red dragonfruit, banana, peach (all frozen), 1/4 cup oats and a big splash of milk (I used regular cows milk because that’s all we had, but any milk would do just fine). For me I would ALWAYS add protein powder to keep me full, but Gordo is happy with the fruit and oats. Topped with toasted coconut, @loving_earth

Fruit Free Muesli 🔮✨🌺🧡
So, I have a confession, I’ve never made spag bol until tonight. This turned out great, with half zoodles and half pasta. In other exciting news, T won @youtotallygotthis
tote from his Mexican rice dish the other week. I will have to get a promotional shot for Rani 😂 Lots of left over bolognese for the freezer stash too!! Perfect weekend ☺️

Moroccan lamb tagine 🍃💥 I cooked up this go-to feed for my girlfriends on Wednesday night (although the pic is a throwback because I didn’t want to put my hungry pals through a photoshoot 😂). This is such a great recipe to cook for guests, as it’s all done in advance. It’s simmering away on the stove while you entertain, and only a few minutes of your time is needed before plating up. Plus it’s full of flavour and hearty, so it’s bound to be a crowd pleaser ✔️ recipe below 👇🕺
Last day of winter = last soups for the year 🍲
One of the reasons I am pro soup is because the veggies/ foods are cooked through. Yes, some of the nutritional value of veggies can be degraded from cooking (namely water soluble C and B vitamins), however cooked foods are much easier to digest, so the nutrients are then easier to be extracted by the body. We are not what we eat- we are what we digest and absorb! Good digestion is the cornerstone of good health, and if your digestion is sluggish, it may be time to give it some support.
🍎 Vanilla bean cacao chip nice cream with apple crumble 🍏 quite possibly the most decadent, delicious breakfast I’ve ever made 🤤 I had my girlfriends over for dinner last night and made apple crumble for dessert. Since it’s refined sugar free and full of goodness, there’s no reason it’s not breakfast material as well as dessert. What a DREAM ❤️ although, even this was a serious feast for me aka the hungriest gal in the world. The nice cream recipe is below, but I’d recommend sharing the nice cream between 2 and going for a slightly larger serve of crumble on top 👌 I’m still perfecting the crumble recipe - I will definitely post it when I do 👅
Fridge clean out time 💥 we’re off to Italy in 4 sleeps (😱😍) so it’s time to empty out the fridge. I roasted up a couple of sad looking zucchinis, half a yellow capsicum, a handful of random baby toms that were floating around the crisper and a wedge of pumpkin I bought last week but hadn’t found a use for. I tossed the pumpkin with some chopped rosemary (also looking very sad but it did the job), olive oil and S&P. Also boiled some corn that was leftover in the the fridge. I found some chicken tenderloins in the freezer (I’m not even going to say how long they were in there...), tossed them with some paprika, chili & cumin, cooked them in the fry pan. Threw it all in a bowl with some rocket, plus a drizzle of cumin yogurt (leftover from our lamb feast last week), hemp seeds & pomegranate ✨✨✨ plenty leftover, it hit the spot and it basically felt as though it was free 😛
Smoooothie time 🐙🐙🐙 my final wisdom tooth is now out of my life, which means a few days of liquids 😷💦 nice cream for dinner? I’m okay with that 😎 this was “lunch” today - an icy, soothing blend of mango, spinach, peach, red dragonfruit (all frozen), chia seeds, water & ice ✨would love to hear your ultimate smoothie recipes so I can try them over the next few days ✌️👇

500g lean minced beef (we got ours from @themeatclubsg

Salmon zucchetti with sugar snaps, peas, pine nuts, chili & parsley 🍋 a tasty little number I made up back in April (the best thing about insta - it’s literally a timeline of all our meals). I really felt like it on Thursday and I hadn’t made it for Gordo yet. It was one of those moments where the stars aligned and I had all the ingredients without going to the shops 🎉🎉🎉 this very rarely happens! Well almost everything... I made it last time with dill (one of my fave herbs) but didn’t have any so this time it was parsley who was the star 🌟 I also added leftover dill & parmesan peas I had in the fridge from dinner the other night 👌
2 pieces of Atlantic salmon (Singapore based people - we got ours from @themeatclubsg
and it was DELISH)
3 medium sized zucchinis, spiralised
Bunch of spring onions, finely sliced
Big handful of continental parsley leaves, finely chopped
Punnet or sugar snap peas (about 2-3 big handfuls), sliced lengthways
1 red chili, seeds removed, finely sliced
Chili flakes (as much or as little you like. I went about 1 tbsp)
Handful of pine nuts
Salt and pepper
After you spiralise your zucc, lay it out on some paper towels or a clean tea towel and try squeeze out as much moisture as possible. This is important so you don’t have sloppy “spaghetti”. Season your salmon with S&P. Heat a fry pan over medium heat, add a small dash of olive oil, then throw in your salmon (skin down if it has skin). While that was cooking away I toasted the pine nuts in a separate pan cause I LOVE nicely browned pine nuts but you don’t have to do this. Once the salmon is cooked, pop it on a plate to rest. Leave the pan as is (salmon juices and all) and throw in your spring onion, sugar snaps & zucchini, toss it around then add the chili and the zest of the lemon. Combine through and cook for about 1 min. While that’s cooking, slice the salmon. Add the parsley, pine nuts, salmon & chili flakes to the pan, toss through and season to your liking. Voila! Throw it on a plate and give it a big squeeze of lemon juice. After this pic I also gave it a sneaky bit of finely shaved Parmesan to bring it all together. Delish 👌
Smoothie time 🍌🍫 nothing beats an icy, choccy post workout treat 💪 I’ve been making these smoothies lots lately, but this pic is a throw back to when I was home on the Gold Coast with my little Sunny bear, showing me his very best downward dog 🐶❤️ here’s my fave staple smoothie recipe 👉almond milk, ice, 1 frozen banana, 1 tbsp chia seeds, 1 tbsp cacao powder & 1 serve @bareblends
Cacao WPI 🙌 topped with homemade @iquitsugar
friendly granola ✌️
Pizza Night 🖤 almond flour base with artichokes, green bean & olives, sundried tomato, French lentil + shallot. Finished with hummus, seeds, charcoal salt flakes, evoo and of course edible florals. #rawbar #coffsharbour
Last night's spread 🤤 BBQed lamb back strap, marinated in garlic & mint ⚡️sweet potato & goats cheese smash ⚡️ rainbow bulgar salad ⚡️ cumin yogurt dressing ⚡️ what an absolute delight! The sweet potato & goats cheese smash is a specialty of Gordo's which we haven't made in years, and the rainbow bulgar salad was a new invention from me, born yesterday as a result of what was in the fridge and what looked good at the shops 😛 The recipes are in the comments below and they are VERY approximate. I'm still not quite in the habit of writing things down and measuring them. Bear with me, I'll get it eventually! 🕺
SUPER BOWL💥 Super bowl, Buddha bowl, vitality bowl, nourish bowl - call it what you will. To me, it’s whatever is floating around your fridge or whatever you’ve got a hankering for, strategically arranged in a bowl, and then (post photoshoot) mixed and mushed together so that it becomes very unattractive. Doesn’t make a huge amount of sense but it’s very satisfying 🤷🏼♀️ this baby features sweet potato chippies, raw zoodles, mixed rice, baby toms, balsamic roasted brussels, spinach, avo, rocket pesto, peas with dill & parmesan, lemon & hemp seeds ✨ usually I would add some sort of “protein” but tonight my bod was telling me this would enough. I listened and it was ☺️
When I first moved out of home I pretty much lived on bagels...these bagels are plant based and gluten free & seeing as I just inhaled one I can in fact say they are completely delicious! I love them topped with cashew cheese, tomato, flakey salt + italian dried herbs. What is your favourite bagel topping? #glutenfreevegan #eatmoreplants
A few of our favourite things 🤤 we’re back together in Singapore and back in the kitchen after a month apart 👫The “first” supper from last night - Gordo’s famous prawn spaghetti ❤️ Homey, simple and oh so delicious. You’ll find the recipe a few posts back (about 5 rows down)🌶🍋🍅 although, I realized last night that the recipe seems to change every time 😳🤷🏼♀️ it’s all about finding what flavours suit you 👌
My last supper in Aus last night 👉 Spiced whole cauliflower & warm chickpea salad (recipe from BBC Food - online), served with turmeric chicken tenderloins, haloumi & flatbreads 😍 all courtesy of my beautiful Mumma ❤️ The recipe is a definite keeper 🤤 can’t wait to cook it back in Singas! I could bang on all day about what an amazingly versatile vegetable cauliflower is. Salads, roasts, pizza, mash, rice... is there anything cauli can’t do?! Would highly recommend adding this recipe to your to-cook list ✔️
Raspberry + Tahini Smoothie Bowl for lunch 🌼it’s so beautifully sunny today, my edible flower garden looks so happy! #rawbar
