Healthy Eating and Weight Loss

Here’s a sample of some of the delicious recipes I share with my coaching clients.

One Pot Taco Pasta

This one-pot dinner combines two family favourites – tacos and pasta.  I’ve even managed to include some legumes and vegetables in it.  And you’ll love the fact that there will only be one pot to wash up afterwards.

Fruity Chia Seed Iceblocks

If you’re feeling a bit stuck in a breakfast rut, I’ve got just the thing to break you out – Fruity Chia Seed Iceblocks!

Yoghurt parfaits topped with fresh fruit and crunchy muesli have been around for a while now.  But have you ever thought about turning those ingredients into an iceblock?

Tomato and Black Bean Salad

This recipe makes enough for 4 serves – so make it an accompaniment to a meal, or prep it to have for lunch all week.⁠⠀Who said including lentil and legumes in your diet twice a week was hard or boring??  

Banana Coconut Muesli

Muesli is one of those foods that everyone automatically thinks of as healthy.  But it’s not always the case.

Commercial muesli can have tonnes of added sugar and fat.  Because I love muesli so much, I decided to share this banana coconut muesli recipe with you that has no added sugar.  Instead, it’s sweetened with… you guessed it, banana!

Slow Cooker Moroccan Lentils

I recommend that my clients aim to include lentils or legumes in their diet at least twice a week.⁠ ⁠

They are an excellent source of soluble fibre, which is very important for your gut health.⁠ ⁠

They are also a great source of protein while being low in calories.⁠  (They are also very cheap!)

You could serve this recipe with Greek yogurt, crusty bread, basmati rice, quinoa, brown rice, tortilla chips or fried eggs.⁠

You can refrigerate the leftovers in an airtight container for up to 5 days (or freeze if you want to keep it longer), so it is perfect to use for lunches.⁠

Black Bean Brownies

I love this recipe!  I know what you’re thinking, “I don’t know how I feel about eating legumes (black beans) in my brownie?”  But just try these and I promise you won’t be disappointed.  They are chocolatey, gooey and full of deliciousness.  They are the answer to getting your chocolate fit while also looking after your gut.

Ginger Salmon Burgers

If you’re sick of plain salmon fillets, give this recipe a try.

Cherry Berry Coconut Iceblocks

With only 3 basic ingredients these low calorie, real-food cherry blueberry coconut iceblocks will keep you cool this summer. Plus, you can have lots of fun and get creative experimenting with different layering methods to create a feast for the eyes as well.

Baked Chicken with Cherry Tomato, Avocado and Baby Spinach Salad

Looking for an easy mid-week chicken meal that isn’t boring?⁠  You know, like something that is as easy baking a piece of chicken, but actually has flavour.⁠  Well, I have the recipe for you!!
⁠This is as easy as chuck it all on a tray, bake in the oven and serve.  Perfect for the mid-week hump slump.

Tomato, Spinach and Feta Breakfast Pizza

This breakfast is low calorie (155 cals per slice) and a great source of protein, fibre and healthy fats. Bound to keep you feeling full and satisfied throughout the morning.⁠
