Serving size: 1 (adjust accordingly)

bircher muesli recipe healthy breakfast
  • pour 1/2 - 1/3c of raw organic oats into a tupperware

  • pour apple juice (or any apple and other fruit combo, my fav is apple & ginger or apple & guava) over, just enough to nearly cover the oats

  • add any extras you desire such as a handful of goji berries; cinnamon; chia seeds (my chosen picks)

  • gently mix with a fork to make sure the juice has mixed with the dry ingredients, cover & soak for at least one hour in the fridge or if making in the morning just put it in the fridge at work when you arrive.

  • in a seperate container add 1/2c of organic yoghurt, this is to mix in with your oats once you are about to eat it.

  • feel free to add nuts/berries or any other fruit to it just before eating...ENJOY! :-)

what's in your lunchbox?

Struggling to make time for food prep to get you through a busy day's work? Often find yourself grabbing something less than nutritious from the corner shop or food van?

Well here are some easy suggestions that will take you no longer than 10-15mins total prep time for a days worth of grazing.

Try and ensure your mid-morning snacks are high in protein as this ensures increased satiety so you won't be reaching for the biscuit jar & increased alertness to avoid dozing off in those 10am meetings! Don't forget to keep well hydrated either so you don't get brain fuzz!

whole food meal ideas

Ever feel lost as to how to create a balanced, tasty meal? Do you lack saturated fats in your diet and not sure how to include them or what they are?

Well here is a little inspiration simply to help you with matching food groups in order to create a balanced meal.

These are ideal for lunch or dinner. I have not specified any portion sizes as there is no one size fits all! Some need more protein to carb ratio; others need more carb to protein ratio and the same goes for the fats.

This is just something to help you get inspired, it's not a prescription. A little tip to help you get your fats into your diet is to always try cook with coconut oil. Also take into account if a piece of meat is fatty then don't worry about adding additional fats to that meal.

gluten free green tea biscuits

 These are super awesome for impressing guests! I re-used the tags from the teabags I had ground.

These are super awesome for impressing guests! I re-used the tags from the teabags I had ground.

Yummy, healthy & gluten free!

Of course fussing over shaping is optional!
I tweaked a couple things: omitted oat flour; xantham gum & matcha powder and used organic wholemeal stoneground flour & just ground up green tea leaves in a pestle and mortar instead. Of course that renders them no longer gluten free (due to flour) but that is up to you...used all organic ingredients and found I only needed 100g of dark choc not 250g ;-).
Try 'em...won't disappoint!

Ingredients:

– 380g gluten-free oat flour (I used organic wholemeal stoneground flour)
– 70g almond meal
– 0.5 tsp salt
– 2.25 tsp xanthan gum (I did not use)
– 15g matcha green-tea powder (I used ground green tea leaves)
– 150g olive oil
– 150g honey
– 1 tsp vanilla extract
– 2 egg yolks
– 250g dark chocolate 70%+, vegan (I used 100g and found it was enough)

Directions:
1. in a large bowl, combine the oat flour, almond meal, salt, xanthan gum & matcha powder. Use a wire whisk to distribute the ingredients together evenly & set aside.
2. in a separate bowl, combine the oil, honey, vanilla & egg yolks. Whisk until it’s combined.
3. add the wet ingredients to the dry & fold together. Refrigerate the dough for an hour.
4. line a work surface with baking parchment & roll the dough out to 1/4inch thick. Cut into squares (or the shapes of tea bags if you’re feeling creative, don’t forget the hole at the top if you do though). Due to a lack of gluten, the dough is a little more delicate than your traditional shortbread dough. I found pushing a spatula underneath the cookie to lift & transfer it to the baking sheet worked best. Alternatively, the shaped can be cut directly on the parchment & then the surrounding dough can be removed. Once baked they are no longer delicate.
5. preheat the oven to 150°C & bake for 25-30 minutes or until starting to turn a little golden. Remove from the oven & after five minutes, transfer to a wire rack to cool.
6. Whilst cooling, melt the chocolate in a heat proof bowl either in a double-boiler or the microwave. Once the cookies are cool & the chocolate is melted, dip half way into chocolate, lightly shake off the excess & then transfer to a parchment sheet to allow the chocolate to harden.

Thanks to @whateversleft for the inspiration and recipe!
