FALAFELS

I haven’t had many falafels in my time as they are usually full of onion, garlic and far too many chickpeas for my stomach to handle. When I have, I love the taste and I love the option of a vegetarian lunch to add to the rotation so I tweaked the traditional recipe a little! […]

TABBOULEH

Is there anything more enticing that a big bowl of fresh herbs and crunchy veg? Didn’t think so. One of my summer staples that may not have many ingredients but it sure packs a flavour punch! Team it with my falafels, eat it on its own or add to your favourite wrap. INGREDIENTS 1/3 Cup […]

TZATZIKI

Store bought dips can be difficult to navigate for us with fructose malabsorption so I always opt to make my own. That way I don’t have to miss out and I find this tzatziki recipe far more tasty and fresh anyway! A few great, simple ingredients go a long way. INGREDIENTS 1 Cup of Natural […]

AMSTERDAM

Kicked off the first day in Europe with some serious jet lag and a blaring body-clock alarm, waking me up at 5am. Considering we couldn’t sleep even if we wanted to, we decided to put on our walking shoes and make the most of our short time in Amsterdam. Exploring at that time of day […]

GUACAMOLE WITH VEGGIE STICKS

There is something very “palm springs in the 70’s” about the way I have presented this dish but I kind of like it. Still yet to meet anyone who isn’t a fan of the humble avocado so why not try out my version of guac next time you’re entertaining? INGREDIENTS 3 x Ripe avocados 1 […]

GO-TO GREEK SALAD

It’s no secret that the greek salad trumps every other salad for me. I have always been obsessed with olives… if they are in my sight, they’ll be finished in seconds! This said, any excuse to add them to my food and I’ll take it. My version of this fresh, crunchy, Mediterranean salad is a […]

MINI QUICHE

Over the years I have made so many variations of these little quiche. As long as you have the base right you can add pretty much any extras you like! This particular recipe was one I made for my 25th birthday where some of my friends were vegetarians so I chose to keep it very […]

ROAST VEGGIE SALAD

I can thank my mum for this tasty recipe! We both love roast vegetables but come summer time we often don’t feel like hot food so this veggie salad was born. Served cold with fresh baby spinach tossed throughout, it’s a more filling option to its lighter lettuce based counterpart. INGREDIENTS 2 x Carrots 2 […]

BOLOGNESE ZOODLES

I have recently found out that I have SIBO! After reading the very restricted and uninspiring diet plan, I was determined to come up with some tasty recipes so I can still enjoy food while letting my gut heal. This soup is the first instalment of many more recipes for my SIBO fam to keep […]

THE FARM – THREE BLUE DUCKS

We had such a nice afternoon at The Farm. Their aim is to educate from a “paddock to plate” level by letting people wander around the farm and look at all of their beautiful animals and veggies. With so many different facets to this place like the three blue ducks restaurant, a produce store, a […]

VACAY IN BYRON BAY

Okay, so I finally got around to writing this post about my unreal getaway to Byron Bay in July! Hoping to escape the horrible Melbourne winter, my boyfriend and I headed to sunny Byron for 8 days.  Happy to say we got the beautiful weather we ordered! Just warm enough to chuck on our bathers […]

BALCONY BAR AND OYSTER CO.

Prime location on a corner in the main strip of Jonson street, this place kept pulling us back in! I just loved the variety of their menu and the low-key seating options. We both found something to eat with ease and the live music really added to the atmosphere. Every time we headed to the […]

THE TOP SHOP

My favourite day in our Byron trip was the day we stopped into the top shop for some fuel and headed to the lighthouse walk. The bright little cafe on top of a hill is the perfect hangout for a lazy sunday morning. All you need to do is pull up one of their picnic […]
