Recipes & Tips

Healthy living at its best

Lately we have been lucky to have some lovely fresh Limes in our Organic Seasonal Fruit & Vegetable Boxes. We've had to put them in a labelled paper bag, because the ripe Limes actually look a lot like lemons.  I've always found cooking with Limes gives my meals a light and refreshing flavour, so I thought I'd share a couple of our family favourites, that are very quick to throw together, with most of the ingredients...

My family seem to eat boxes and boxes of pre-packaged muesli bars each week.  They are gluten intolerant, so of course the only brands available to eat are usually quite expensive.  You can buy pre-made Energy Balls, but at $3.00-5.00 each, that's a bit too steep for the amount my family would go through! So I decided to come up with a quick snack they could have with their afternoon tea, after a hard day at...

This week's new Shopping Checklist is quite handy when it comes to working out what you are in need of, when planning your shopping. Rather than pour through pages on the website, and possibly skipping one that has something you need, simply run through and check this list and it will make life even easier. Once you have checked off your list, pop onto the website and you'll find filling in your requirements is a breeze. Don't forget...

We tried hard not to indulge over Christmas, but with so much good food around it was hard.  Fortunately, Secret Santa gifted me with Teresa Cutter's The Healthy Chef cook book and it is full of healthy, light recipes. This salad has been a regular feature on our menu since Christmas and everyone we have shared it with has really loved it.   Superfood Green Tabouli 350 g raw broccoli ( 1 large head broccoli) 6 spring onion finely sliced 100 g (1...

Pikelets are such a hit in our household. They're the one breakfast that small and large people agree on, so we do our best to make sure they are a nourishing start to busy days. If you don't have all of these ingredients you can easily sub with different flours and sweeteners and omit the egg without compromising the consistency of the pikelets. Ingredients: 20g butter or coconut oil 140g wholemeal spelt flour 1/4 tsp salt 30g rapadura sugar 3 tbs...

Chia seeds are ace. They're a powerhouse house of nutrients and we certainly power through those little seeds. I know, I know, Chia Seed Puddings. They are everywhere, there is nothing original about them. But we are here to remind you that these little pud's are such a quick and easy breakfast not to be overlooked. These are the basic recipe of the pud's we make regularly, perfect for summer mornings.   Cinnamon Chia Seed Puddings Serves two Ingredients: 1 cup of...

Even for those who aren't regular supermarket shoppers, there are occasions when venturing into the supermarket is necessary to pick up some bread or last minute essentials. Supermarkets, backed by a powerful food industry, increasingly attempt to win consumers through ad campaigns that use the labels of 'fresh', 'Australian Made' and 'Australian Grown'. But how do we accurately interpret food labels and what about pesticide residue?   Is it really made in Australia? For anyone who is concerned...
