Edamame & Avo Mash

Difficulties:  /  /  /  /  /  /  /  /  /  /  / 

Jazz up your regular avocado on toast with this super nutritious, plant protein-rich spread. A lot of people complain that avocado on toast isn't satisfying them, so why not up the protein, fibre and nutrient value by adding in this sneaky little legume to the party. The use of raw miso lends a bit of gut-loving probiotics to the equation too. It also tastes amazing and is great if not just for variety, without leaving out the avocado (because avocado should never be forgotten entirely!). 

Red Lentil Pasta with Mushrooms, Silverbeet & Bechamel Sauce

Difficulties:  /  /  /  /  /  /  /  /  /  / 

The main source of protein for this one is in the pasta! That's right, if you haven't gotten your hands on some legume-based pasta you are seriously missing out on an easy and delicious way to consume gut-loving beans/pulses. In fact, this whole meal is good for your gut rich in fibre, antioxidants, prebiotics and starch. The béchamel sauce is made creamy without dairy, but instead using pumpkin which is not just a filler ingredient, but rather offers its own nutritional benefits - vitamins A, C, E, potassium, and particularly good for eye and heart health. The coconut milk is a nice whole food source of fat that can help the body absorb some of these fat-soluble nutrients. Coupled with silverbeet, mushrooms, garlic, lemon, nutritional yeast and any other spices you desire - this is an extremely nutrient-dense meal that won't leave anybody hungry 😉

Green Beauty Blend

I’m shocked I haven’t shared this with you sooner! Although I constantly post about it on my Instagram and Insta-stories… but here is the full recipe to my new favourite green drink to start my day. It comes out a little darker than your typical green smoothie, but that is because it is full of the good stuff! Fibre, selenium, b vitamins, potassium, magnesium, plant-based omega 3 and protein to keep our cells healthy and happy and help us radiate from within 🙂

1, 2, 3 Curry!

Difficulties:  /  /  /  /  /  /  /  /  /  /  /  /  / 

This is quick, it is easy, it is adaptable, it is nutritious – which is why it is a weekly staple for me. The combo of tomatoes and coconut milk plus the water thins it out so it is not too heavy/fatty per serving. The veggies can be swapped for your favourites, and added in accordingly to how long each takes to cook but not overcook! Lastly, curry powder and other spices are the perfect seasonings to give it flavour, no fancy or expensive pastes or methods required. A bay leaf or two can always be added, but are not crucial. Everyones a chef with this warming bowl of goodness! There is no need to cook a starch, as grains are also suggested – and for a lighter version stick to just legumes/tofu/tempeh and the veggies.
