Baked Salmon with Basil & Thyme Pesto
Serves 2 | Prep 15 mins | Cook 12 mins

Pesto goes with pretty much everything and when made in advance and stored in the fridge, can be a time saver for quickly adding some amazing flavour to your meals. While traditional pesto uses parmesan, I've used nutritional yeast for a dairy free option. The baked salmon topped with this pesto pairs beautifully. I also love it over white fish, chicken or roast vegetables. Salmon is rich in omega 3 fatty acids which support healthy brain function and can be supportive in treatment for women with hormonal imbalances such as PCOS as they are anti-inflammatory, and they are also supportive in egg implantation if you are wanting to fall pregnant. Our body is unable to produce them on their own so we must consume them.

Gingerbread Overnight Oats with Stewed Apple
Serves 2 | Prep 10 mins | Cook 10 mins

This is an easy breakfast recipe to make, and you can make it the night before which will save you some time in the morning. In winter I enjoy porridge most mornings, but as we are heading in to the hotter months of the year, I'm swapping warm porridge for cool overnight oats/quinoa. I like to try different flavour variations and in this one I've included stewed apples which has a host of health benefits. Apples are rich in polyphenols which have anti-inflammatory actions and antioxidants. Apples are also one of the highest sources of pectins, which means when you consume them they have the ability to ‘feed’ particular bacteria within our microbiome. So apples are a great choice if you are wanting to support and restore your gut health.

Banana Chocolate Coconut Bread
Serves 8 | Prep 15 mins | Cook 40-45 mins

I'm often asked what my go-to snacks are. For many of my clients I see they get stuck around that 3pm time craving sugar and grabbing the nearest chocolate bar or lollies. Being organised with smart nourishing snacks can change your life. Nutritionally this banana bread makes a great snack choice, it's higher in protein than most store bought / cafe banana breads, it contains complex carbohydrates and nourishing fats. The sweetness in this bread predominately comes from using very ripe bananas, and is delicious served with some butter, or nut butter, or even tahini.

Vegetable Fritter Stack
Serves 1-2 | Prep 15 mins | Cook 10 mins

Fritters are crispy crunchy on the outside and soft within. They are high in protein, and fibre, and delicious on. their own or served with a squeeze of fresh lemon juice, yoghurt or a beetroot hummus.

Caesar Salad
Serves 3-4 | Prep 15 mins | Cook 15 mins

This is my healthy version of a classic. I like to add a bit more than the standard vegetables in a typical caesar to boost the nutrients, so I added to the cos lettuce and rocket some sliced red onion, cherry tomatoes, and cucumber. You could really add any vegetables with this creamy dressing it's delicious! The flavour intensity of olive oil can vary so you may prefer to try a light olive oil in this recipe.

Pumpkin Lasagna
Serves 4-5 | Prep 25 mins | Cook 50 mins

Lasagna brings back a lot of childhood memories of Mum making us her delicious version. While my recipe is not a traditional lasagna, I love that I can still achieve the same flavours, and with all the nourishment in this dish I feel really good after eating it. My version is for those who might get digestive upset from gluten and dairy, so I've exchanged the pasta sheets for sliced pumpkin, and if your health food store has them you can also use konjac lasagne sheets. They are a gluten free alternative. This lasanga stores beautifully in the fridge for up to 3 days or you can freeze for later.

Salted Caramel Bliss Balls
Serves 12 | Prep 8 mins

The best thing about these balls are they are so simple to make as part of your weekly meal prep, and so tasty. They are high in fibre, so you will feel fuller and satisfied for longer.

Pumpkin Chickpea Curry
Serves 2 | Prep 10 mins | Cook 25 mins

When it's been a long day and you don't want to spend longer than 15 minutes in the kitchen cooking, I recommend you try this super quick and delish curry. The colder months of the year are the best for warming us up from the inside out. There are a number of tasty spices in this including turmeric which has tons of benefits including anti-stress properties, improving insulin sensitivity, immune support and the ability to activate the NRF2 gene. Once turned on, this gene can improve our resilience when it is exposed to inflammation, oxidative stress, toxic exposure, poison, allergies and intolerances. Turmeric has very low toxicity at really high doses, so it's hard to get too much of this really good thing!

TIP. I like to meal prep this in advance for those nights when I get home late or have a big day, I think it tastes even better when the spices and sauces have had time to settle. Most curries usually taste even better the next day! So make extra for lunch tomorrow & top with a dollop of yoghurt so tasty!
