There’s nothing wrong with craving comforting, baked goods first thing in the morning, and if you whip up a batch of our breakfast muffins this weekend, you can have just that. And they’re healthy too.
We are throwing it back this Thursday to when we featured the talented Lungi Nhlanhla in MyKitchen and she shared her bright and beautiful anchovy and sweet potato salad with us. Check her out at Lungi’s Corner for even more deliciousness.
We know what mornings can be like, and that’s why we always like to be prepared. This is one brekkie that only requires 10 minutes of hands-on time and can be prepped in advance so that you can enjoy a bowl of grab and go gourmet oats the next day.
Did you know that oily fish such as tuna contain omega-3 fatty acids that may keep headaches at bay. Not to mention a whole host of other health benefits. Serve our healthy tuna ceviche on top of a baked potato with a side of dressed leafy greens for added magnesium which will assist in brain functioning.
We bring you our version of the gym rat’s favourite healthy, protein- and nutrient-packed meal: chicken and rice. Swap plain old rice for a scrumptious spinach risotto. It may take you a bit longer in the kitchen, but you’ll learn a new skill in the kitchen. A risotto is an impressive dish every home cook should have in their repertoire. Pair it with some lean roast chicken breasts and you’ll have a wholesome mid-week meal you’ll go for again and again.
Packed with iron, vitamins A, C, E and K, niacin, folate, calcium and potassium from the baby spinach, heart-healthy monounsaturated fatty acids from the avo, and all the healing, antioxidant powers of green tea, sweetened with raw honey… This is a superfood smoothie bomb in a jar!
We all love a piece of batter-crusted fish, but we took ours to the next level and whipped up this parsley crumb to perfectly accompany the taste of the sea, and add a bit of freshness too. And instead of serving your dorado with fries, pop some peppers, baby marrows and red onions onto your plate for a healthier meal.
It seems that the health world has found yet another way to surprise us by making sneaking veggies into food a trend. Remember the days when adding spinach to a smoothie was the in-thing? This year it’s all about creamy cauliflower smoothies!
That satisfying pop when you bite into an ice-cold grape or that gentle sip of red you take after a long working week, there’s something pretty special about these little round fruit that beautifully dots our country’s vineyards. But besides it’s aesthetics and ability to be turned into a beloved alcoholic beverage, we want to explore the wonderful ways in which we can cook with it. So, get your grapes and we’ll meet in the kitchen!
Caralishious says: ‘One thing that I often miss on this healthy journey of mine is none other than the good old waffle. There is just something about a hearty crisp waffle that really gets my taste-buds worked up…even the thought of a waffle can trigger cravings second to none. And so off to the kitchen I went to work on a healthy waffle recipe (obviously…wink wink). What makes my heart sing even more is that this particular recipe is low carb too. Such a win! In this recipe I do use caramelized bananas as a topping which may increase the carb content, so for those of you who are watching your carbs, you can leave out the banana and just use the nut butter and strawberries as your main toppings. I hope you love this one as much as I do.’
