Asian Chopped Chicken Salad

Now, I know its been a while between posts. Study, work, and family have certainly kept me busy the last year. 2017 is shaping up to be no different.

I started this year with so many commitments eating up my time, that I have to look at being more efficient where I could. I have started meal planning to make sure that I’m not wasting foods (pet hate of mine) and that I’m not spending more money on groceries than I should be. After our mortgage, food is our biggest expense in my household.

So, I got busy planning, and coming up with some new recipes. This one was one of them…

Lemon Balls

Today I was given a bag of lemons, so of course I was going to come up with something ‘lemony’ right away. I love lemons. If I was choosing a dessert its always got to be something made with lemons or berries.

A Nutty Snack – Paleo Cinnamon Macadamia’s

Thinking of different meal options and snacks can be the hardest part of any eating style, dare I call it…diet. Not only have I chosen to make a healthy choice by following Paleo for my body, but I must make that same choice each time I prepare food.

This can often be the hardest part for most of us when we make such a big lifestyle change, maintaining the strength to keep making that choice every day. I hope that by me sharing recipes and advice with you it may make each healthier choice easier for you.2 Continue reading

Banana Balls – A Great Paleo Snack

Wanting a simple snack idea, you can’t go past balls or bites. I’ve done a few ball recipes now; Dried Fruit Balls (nut free), Choc & Fruit Protein Balls, Apricot Bites, andย Chocolate Avocado Truffles. They are a favourite in our house, perfect for a healthy snack on the go and for the lunch box.

Today’s version I wanted to use a banana for something different. I had one that really was ripe and needed to be used up quick. So I came up with this little recipe.

Paleo Challenge Day 9 – CADA

Before I bought my Thermomix I hadn’t even heard of CADA. Basically, it is a gluten and grain free version of muesli. CADA stands for Coconut, Almonds, Dates and Apple.

Breakfast time can also be one of the harder meals to find alternates to grains. This is the perfect alternate. It is one of the best things you can start your day with, giving you a great boost of natural energy and filling up your tummy for the busy day ahead of you.
