Salmon and Veggie Muffins

 

Sunday morning is well and truly amongst us which means its time to get started on some prep cooking for the week. Being organised is the key to leading the healthy lifestyle that you want because when you already have food prepared or ingredients purchased its much much harder to ignore and reach for those junk food evils.

 

My instagram post last week of the salmon and veggie muffins for breakfast sparked a bit of interest so I thought it was the perfect time to post one of my most favourite go-to recipes (you’ll probably notice I refer to nearly everything as my favourite!) Continue reading

3min Choc-Hazelnut Pudding

This is my first Sunday morning post but is only the start of many. Sunday is my favourite day, it’s when I’m in my cooking zone which for me is one of the most relaxing activities.

Today I post while enjoying delicious leftovers from last night’s dinner (pictured above, don’t mind my novice photography…)

For about 3 weeks of the year in Brisbane, the temperate drops below 20 degrees and we all start to lose ourshiz, stay indoors and cover up from head to toe. (Piss weak but we’re the first to admit it!) This is the time of year where I crave earthy, hearty, warm meals and when I get home from a long day all I want to do is just curl up on the couch with my uggies on under a comfy blanket.
All of this means it is perfect time to whip out the slow cooker and throw together some ingredients in the morning before work for an easy and scrumptious dinner that is ready for when you get home. Continue reading
