I love nutritious food!! Trying, sharing and making up my own new recipes is a big part of a Nutritionists life. These are recipes I’ve chelated over time, some are mine and some are beautiful recipes I’ve found along the way.

A few healthy savoury’s…

Carrot & Zucchini slice

  • 1 zucchini, coarsely grated
  • 2 small carrots, peeled and grated
  • 1 brown onion, diced
  • 1 cup goats cheese, crumbled
  • 1 cup buckwheat flour
  • ½ cup oil (olive, rice bran or safflower)
  • 5 free range eggs
  • Handful of fresh herbs of your choice- I use parsley, coriander, basil & mint
  • A. Vogel Herbamare salt to taste (bought from health food section of Coles)

Combine all ingredients with a bar mix or stir with a wooden spoon. Place in a lamington tray (or similar). Cook in moderate oven 160 degrees celcius -180 degrees celcius for 35-45 minutes or until set and golden brown.


One of my ultimate inspirations is Theresa Cutter ‘The Healthy Chef’. She makes divine Buckwheat wraps for all the Gluten free foodies out there.

Buckwheat Wraps

  • 100g buckwheat flour
  • 1 tbsp arrowroot powder
  • 200ml carrot juice
  • pinch of nutmeg
  • pinch of sea salt
  1. Pour carrot juice into a bowl
  2. Whisk in the buckwheat flour until combined
  3. Whisk in the arrowroot and season with the nutmeg and sea salt
  4. Check the consistency- it should flow like a crepe batter- you can adjust by adding a little more buckwheat flour or carrot juice if necessary
  5. Cook just like crepes in a pan by lightly oiling with little coconut or olive oil then pouring the batter just enough to coat the bottom of the pan
  6. Cook for 1 minute and flip over with a spatula to cook the other side for a few more seconds
  7. Cool the wraps on a plate and store between sheets of grease-proof paper
  8. Store wrapped in the fridge for up to 3 days. Makes 10 wraps.


Vegan Nut and Seed Bread

I LOVE this recipe by the authors of ‘Green Kitchen Travels’. I make this loaf every week! Such a great alternative to regular break with it being vegan! It’s very filling, so delicious and easy to make. Great for all the vegans out there however if you wanted to, you could replace the psyllium and water with 5 eggs.

  2. Meanwhile, place all the nuts and seeds into a bowl, add the salt, oil and stir.
  3. Add the psyllium gel and give it a good stir.
  4. Set aside for 1 hour (this step is optional but the end result will be better)

  6. Remove from oven and leave to cool completely before slicing

Coconut water kefir

The benefits include: • improved digestion • Improved gut function through beneficial bacteria naturally fermenting • de bloating • improved immunity • improved general health & wellbeing

I have used water kefir grains, 1L of coconut water and 30g of organic raw sugar: mix together in a glass jar and leave to sit in a cool dark area for 48 hours. Make sure the is a gap between the top of the water and the lid so carbon dioxide can form. Then sift out the kefir grains and place water in fridge. The grains are reusable!!
