SPRING RAINBOW RADISH SALAD

Ok this one has become a bit of a favorite of mine as it's so insanely easy (I'm talking it's going to take you all of ten mins) but looks like an actual dream. Ticks all the health boxes too ! INGREDIENTS:

2 cups spinach

1/2 cup egg whites  

3 x rainbow radishes (we are aiming for this to be as colorful AF so the more diff types the better!)  

1/4 cup flaked almonds  

IMG_3714.JPG

HOW:  

 - Let the slicing begin! Take a mandolin slicer and set it quite thin (watch those fingers!) and start slicing you radishes. Once done set aside. 

 - slice avo with a knife, also quite thin. 

- roughly chop spinach and place in a bowl. Add avo, almonds and radish and toss ever so gently.

- pre heat fry pan, spray lightly with coconut oil and pour in egg whites. Keeping these moving around with a wooden spoon while cooking is key for these bad boys. As they start to cook and fluff up take them off the heat and add to the salad. 

- toss all ingredients in the bowl together, serve the salad naked or add a touch of lemon juice and you are good to go!

UNICORN PEANUT BUTTER BALLS

An adaption from my Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Balls, these guys are not only delicious but magical too. Because everyone needs some sparkle in their life, right?!

Using beetroot powder and blue algae to flavor and color the balls with their superfood goodness and edible glitter to make them shine, these are one of those instagrammable treats that are good all around.

UNICORN PEANUT BUTTER BALLS

INGREDIENTS:

1/2 cup cashews
1/2 cup peanuts
1/2 cup pb2 powder
1/4 cup coconut oil
3/4 cup apple sauce
1 tbs lacuma powder
3/4 cup vegan vanilla protein
2 tbs desiccated coconut
1/4 cup almond meal
2 tablespoons beetroot powder
2 tablespoons blue algae


HOW:
- Take the peanuts and the cashews and give them a quick 5 Sec whiz in a bullet Bullet blender. The idea is to keep them rough and chunky, this will keep your balls texturally exciting. Transfer them to a medium sized mixing bowl.
- Add the remainder of the dry ingredients to the mixing bowl and stir until combined.
- Add the apple sauce and get mixing! The mixture should start to be getting a little dough like. You want this to stay on the dryer side but still mould-able. If it's too dry add 1 tbs of water and stir again.
- It's now time to be a baller and get Rollin'! Divide your batter into three bowls, adding the beetroot powder to one batch, the blue algae to another and keeping one third of the batter plain. Mix well.

- Aim for balls about 1 inch or so in diameter. The mix should make around 15-17 balls depending on size.

-Mix up your glitter and roll the balls through it! More glitter, less bitter!
- Store in an air tight container in the fridge and enjoy!
 

RAW SALTED ROSE CHOCOLATES

Roses and cacao, does it get any more loved up than that?! Whether it's for a loved one or just to show yourself some serious selflove these collagen filled, super food chocolates are where it's at this Valentine's Day. 

IMG_6437.JPG

INGREDIENTS:

1/2 cup Cacao butter

1/2 cup coconut oil

1 &1/4 cup Cacao powder

1/4 cup collagen peptides

3 dates soaked (optional)

8 drops rose oil

1/4 tsp cinnamon

Garnish:

Cacao nibs

Pink Himalayan sea salt

HOW:

- Soak dates in 3 tbs of hot water and leave to the side.

- Melt cacao butter and coconut oil together, I would do this Bain marie style, (sauce pan of boiling water, with a bowl of the cacao & coconut floating on top) This technique will gently melt the ingredients without spoiling them. Once melted transfer to a bullet blender.

- Drain the dates, add to the bullet along with all other ingredients. Blend until this is thoroughly combined and looking super glossy.

- Pour mix into choc molds or you can do what i did and use a rubber ice cube tray. Sprinkle with cacao nibs and a touch of pink Himalayan sea salt and these bad boys are ready for the fridge.

- depending on the thickness, these could take anywhere from 20-60 mins to set.

- Once set pop them out, give them to your loved ones or give yourself some love and enjoy this decadent treat. Store in the fridge in an airtight container.

RAINBOW VEGGIE PLATE:

Fall has finally hit, which means we are in search of more nurturing and comforting things to eat. We are start to cook a little more, start to introduce those delicious fall flavors, roast things and really embrace alllllll the delicious things more than ever. So what better time to ditch the beige food and embrace all the colorful things and give your metabolism a boost along the way. This dish can be a side for any lean protein shared for two or an entire meal for all those plant based foodies out there. Studies have shown that eating "rainbows" or colorful foods is amazing for your metabolism, so don't be shy, get experimental if you like, the more color the better with this one.

IMG_1074.JPG

INGREDIENTS:

1 1/2 cup cauliflower rice

4 rainbow carrots

20 asparagus spears

1/2 pomegranate

2 tbs tahini

Handful of fresh dill

35 g dry roasted almonds (handful )

1 pinch chilli flakes

 

HOW:

  • Pre heat the broiler on high.
  • Cut the bases off the asparagus spears and set aside
  • Peel carrots and cut into spears length ways, I would try and keep them a similar size to the asparagus, this will ensure things all cook at a similar rate.
  • Take two pans and spray lightly with coconut oil, place the asparagus in one, carrots in the other and lightly spray with coconut oil again then place under the broiler. Set a timer for 5 mins, once timer is up turn veggies over and repeat. The goal here is slightly roasted looking veggies so if they need another min or two on each side depending on the strength of your broiler.
  • While this is cooking get started on the rest of the Prep and the cauliflower mix. Start by chopping the almonds and taking the seed pods out of the pomegranate. Set these aside and now move on to the cauliflower.
  • Lightly spraying a pre heated fry pan with coconut oil, add cauliflower and chili flakes and lightly sauté for a couple of mins. Transfer to a small bowl, add the tahini, dill and stir throughly until combined.
  • Take the carrots and asparagus out from under the broiler and now you are ready to putting it all together!
  • Take the cauliflower mix and spread it about 1/2 inch thick on a plate to create a base, follow this with a layer of the carrots and the asparagus, followed by almonds, pomegranate and some fresh dill annnnnnd you've got yourself one impressive looking side for two or main meal.

SWORDFISH CEVICHE

Summer may have come to an end however my love of fresh meals that leave you feeling oh so good will never die. Ceviche will always be a favorite of mine; it's healthy, it's super simple but impresses friends and lovers and tasty AF. What is it? It's originally a Latin American recipe for raw fish and seafood marinated in citrus juice, mainly lime and lemon juice. The acid in the citrus juice "cooks" the proteins in the fish, it appearing opaque and cooked but essentially it's raw. This is another recipe that can be an entire meal if made for two or served as a pre dinner snack to impress friends with corn chips and a killer sangria, I mean there's just so many options!

image.jpg

INGREDIENTS:

1 lb raw swordfish

Juice of 2 limes

1 jalapeno finely sliced

1/2 cup freshly chopped cilantro

1/2 cup freshly chopped mint

7 oz lite coconut milk

1/4 cup shaved coconut

 

HOW:

- Take a super sharp knife to the swordfish fillet and slice it as thin as possible, cutting into pieces roughly an inch in length and 1/8 of an inch thick. Place in a medium sized bowl.

- Cover the swordfish with the lime juice, add the sliced jalapeno, stir and leave for 20mins.

- While this is "cooking" in the lime juice , take a frypan heat to a medium heat and "toast" the coconut. This process is actually quite quick so keep an eye on it. As soon as the coconut flakes start to change in color and lightly brown take it off the heat and place in a bowl to cool, this will also insure that it won't continue to cook in the hot pan even though the heat is turned off.

- Once the 20mins is up, add the coconut milk, cilantro and mint and make sure it is all stirred through. Yup this bad boy is ready to serve- how easy was that?!

- Serve in stemless wine glasses or drinking glasses (this has a super impressive effect while portioning it perfectly) Top the ceviche with the toasted coconut and you are ready to rock! This can be served with alone in a glass or with a side of tortilla chips and eaten together.

GLUTEN FREE COOKIE DOUGH CUPS

This one doesn't need any words except GET IN MY FACE. I was on a mission to create something insanely delicious yet still keeping me on point with my eating, I mean we are in our last weeks of summer, why ruin the beach body now?! After playing around in the kitchen who knew the answer was chickpeas and protein powder and believe it or not but these tick all the healthy boxes; Sugar free, vegan, gluten free, raw, dairy free, grain free so yes I have literally made magic happen haha. Oh and did I mention that this is another easy bendable thing too?! 🙈 So now there's no excuse to not make these immediately.

 

image.jpg

INGREDIENTS:

Paper/foil Cupcake trays X 8

1 can of chick peas

1 scoop vanilla or choc protein powder (this can either be vegan or whey and which ever flavor you decide on will just slightly flavor the cookie dough so this can be whatever give like!)

1/3 cup almond meal

2 tbs flax meal

1 tsp baking soda

1 cup almond milk


Chocolate:


1/3 cup cacao powder

1/4 cup melted coconut oil



HOW:

- Rinse and drain the can of chick peas and add to bullet blender.

- Add almond milk and blend until smooth.

- Add all other ingredients and blend again.

- Sample this bad boy, assess if you need to add more protein powder or not. If you need a slightly sweeter taste then add another tbs and blend again (you could also use stevia if needed),  then praise me for being a genius and then put the container in the freezer while you start on the cups. 

- Combine the coconut oil and cacao in a small bowl until a smooth chocolate is formed.

- Lay out paper cupcake trays and start to fill one at a time with the chocolate. Use 2 tbs of the choc per tray, swirl the choc around the tray so the base is covered and it runs up the sides 3/4 of an inch high. Set the other half of the choc mixture aside, you'll need this for the tops in 5 mins.

- Place choc moulds in freezer to set for 5 mins

- Take out both the choc moulds and the cookie dough. One mould at a time spoon 1 tbs of the cookie dough into the cupcake mould patting it down as flat as possible, continue this for all 8

- Now for the tops! Take 1 tbs of the choc and drizzle on top of the cookie dough, spread it around to create a "lid" on your cup.

- Place in the freezer for 5 mins, then transfer to the fridge until ready to eat. Enjoy!

GLUTEN FREE SAVORY SWEET POTATO PANCAKES

Pancakes are something I could literally eat for breakfast, lunch, and dinner erry damn day. So as this obsession of mine has continued I've become quite creative with variations but this would by far have to be my savory favorite and once again like the theme you see in most of my recipes SUPER EASY!

IMG_0890.JPG

Pancake mix:

1/2 cup egg whites

1 cup sweet potato purée

1/4 cup nutritional yeast

2 tbs coconut flour

Pinch of Himalayan pink salt

Pinch of Black Pepper

Pinch of baking powder

1/4 cup of freshly chopped Dill

1/4 cup freshly chopped Chives

 

TOPPING:

4 Brussel sprouts quartered

4 mushrooms sliced

1/4 cup sliced almonds

4 chicken tenders poached and shredded

2-3 tbs of your Fav hot sauce

2 tbs tahini mixed with 2 tbs of water.

 

PANCAKE BATTER:

- start with the sweet potato purée. You can buy this pre puréed or do it yourself, I like to do it myself because it's simple but either works. If DYI it's as simple as boiling the sweet potato pieces in water until soft, draining and blending in your bullet /blender

- To the bullet/ blender add all the ingredients for the pancake mix minus the dill and chives and blend.

- Take half of the dill and chives and add to the mix but only stir through.

- Set aside.

 

While that is resting, this is where you prepare your toppings for these glorious pancakes. Remember you can have WHATEVER YOU LIKE on them, I went with the poached chicken option but your options are endless.

 

TOPPINGS:

- Pre heat pan and lightly spray with coconut oil, Cook mushrooms and sprouts until golden

- Add sliced almonds and cooked chicken to the veggies in the pan and cook for two mins, I like to add a couple of splashes(or more depending on how adventurous I'm feeling 😉) of my fav hot sauce to this bit for some extra kick, it also works to lightly coat all ingredients nicely.

- Set pan aside.

 

Cooking your Pancakes:

- Pre heat pan number 2, lightly spray with coconut oil and begin to cook your pancakes. spoon 3 tbs of batter per pancake, I usually try and do three pancakes per pan. Cooking time will vary from 5-7 mins

 

Putting it all together!

- It's all about the layers! I have a bit of a system.... Pancake, spread tahini, spoon Veggie and chicken mix, sprinkle with chives and dill, place pancake two on top and repeat!

Serves 6

Remember this guy is super dense so it serves 6, I love making mini single serve cheesecakes in ramekins or cupcake trays because I love individual portioned desserts and it makes presentation and serving sooo much easier when having guests over for dinner.

INGREDIENTS:

2 cups raw cashews

1/2 cup apple sauce

1/2 cup frozen blueberries thawed - save a couple for topping

3 tbs lemon juice

4 tbs coconut oil - melted

4 tbs of grated lemon rind

1/2 Pinch of Himalayan pink salt

 

Crust:

1/3 cup golden flaxseed

2 tbs coconut oil

1/3 cup raw almonds 

2 medjool dates

1 tbs lacuma powder

1/2 tsp cinnamon

 

HOW:

"Cheesecake Filling":

  • Soak cashews in water for a minimum of 20mins, ideally 1 hr. The longer you soak them the creamier they will be.
  • Take soaked cashews (make sure you've drained them) and place them in a bullet/blender. Blend til smooth.
  • Add the blueberries, apple sauce, lemon juice to the cashew mix and continue to blend until creamy.
  • Add all other ingredients to the mix and that's right you guessed it, BLEND AGAIN.
  • Your "cheesecake" filling should be super smooth by this stage, place it in the freezer to cool down while you start the base!

Crust:

  • Once again, all ingredients in the bullet (different cup to the cheesecake mix, that would just be weird and ruin the magic that's about the happen!) Blend until the mixture becomes bread crumb like.

 

PUTTING IT TOGETHER:

  • Take cheesecake mix out of the freezer, try a bit ahhhhh talk about delicious right?!
  • Take a ramekin about 2" wide and 2" deep or a glass and press 1/6 of the crust mix into the bottom for your base.
  • Spoon 1/6 of the cheesecake mix on top and spread the top smooth.
  • Top this bad boy with anything you like! I went with the semi lazy yet effective blueberries and lemon rind twist
  • Repeat this X 6
  • Place cheesecakes in the fridge for at least 30 mins and BOOM ready to serve. Prepare to have to have your mind blown.

FUDGEY BERRY PROTEIN BARS

Ok so you all know I'm a huge fan of a protein ball and over the weekend I thought woaaaaaah what if I mix it up and made my own insanely delicious dessert like FUDGEY BERRY PROTEIN BARS!! Mind blown annnnnnnnd it got the huge thumbs up from all the family.

INGREDIENTS:

1 cup vanilla vegan protein

2 cups of defrosted frozen berries (don't drain them as the juice works really well in this)

1/2 cup almond meal

1/2 cup cashew butter

1/4 cup melted coconut oil

1 vanilla bean pod

1/2 cup freeze dried raspberries


HOW:

  • Blend the berries in a bullet blender until smooth. Add the cashew butter, coconut oil and the inside seeds of your vanilla bean and blend again. Pour contents into a medium mixing bowl.
  • Add almond meal and protein powder to mix in the bowl and stir through.
  • Take half of the freeze dried raspberries and gently fold through your mix, this looks a lot better chunky and works as little flavor explosions in the slice. Set mix aside.
  • Line a medium sized brownie baking tray with waxed paper
  • Add mix to the tray, spread about 1 inch thick.
  • Sprinkle the remaining freeze dried raspberries on top, place in the freezer for 20mins
  • Once hard, cut into squares 2x2 inches and these bad boys are ready to rock!
  • Store in an airtight container in the fridge or freezer, I kinda dig the frozen vibes on a super hot day but either option is pretty god damn delicious.
