A Very Veggie Breakfast

We all know we should eat more veg – truly we do! And one meal we fall down at is usually breakfast. Maybe we don’t have time, maybe we have more of a sweet tooth, but that just means we’ve got more opportunity to shoehorn some greens in before our day gets underway. This is […]

Beef Nachos

Mexican Taco Bowl

Taco lovers, have you tried a Mexican Taco Bowl? It is a healthy and easy take on the original and much less messy! It doesn’t take too long to throw together, especially if you have rice at the ready. Cook it up for the family for a refreshing summer dinner. Alternatively, prep it on Sunday for a few lunches during the week. These toppings for the bowl are delish but you can change it up with whatever you fancy: substitute rice for quinoa, add some mixed lettuce leaves, or top with vegan cream cheese instead of cheese and sour cream for a dairy-free meal. Let fussy eaters choose their own toppings or eat it deconstructed. It’s a great meal to eat on the back deck on a warm evening and another bonus is that there’s not much washing up. Buen provecho!

Big Green Breaky

There’s nothing like getting a big, delicious avocado in The Organic Place fruit and veggie bag. I love how they can add that extra tasty goodness to almost anything, as well as all those amazing health benefits. Vitamins, folate, magnesium, potassium; you name it, avocado has it. We love it at our place as a […]

Simple Spring Salad

As a busy mum we tend not to not put ourselves and our eating habits first. How many of you eat breakfast standing up, have lunch on the run or skip a meal altogether? It’s easy to let our own health slide and to become rundown. Luckily for us, we can rely on The Organic Place to deliver us fresh, delicious, organic produce and products that can give us the extra boost our tired and sleep deprived bodies need.

Of course there’s a million different salad combinations you can try but I really love this one because as well as tasting great, it is full of super ingredients. Eggs are the most amazing food that keep us fuller for longer and provide us with protein and vitamins. Kehoe’s Kitchen beetroot sauerkraut provides us with probiotics for a healthy gut. Avocado and olive oil are good fats. Feta is a delicious touch of dairy. The greens in the salad, of course, are packed with amazing minerals and fibre.

You can throw this salad together in the time it takes to boil an egg, and from there on, you could even eat it one-handed if need be. Mums with clingy bubs, you’ll know what I’m talking about here.
Celebrate the change in Spring weather and whip up this salad for yourself. Your taste buds, and your body, will thank you.

Baked Eggs in Ratatouille

Baked Eggs in Ratatouille

What could be more fitting for the Easter holiday weekend than eggs in a meal? No, not the chocolate kind, (I’m sure you’ve had enough of those already!), but the wholesome ones, that might balance out all the chocolate eating you’ve been doing. This is one of my favourite ways to have eggs.
