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.

Thai Beef and Veg Curry

As we struggle to stay warm during the coldest part of the year, this dish is a welcome addition to your meal plan. I was inspired to make a Thai curry after seeing the coriander in The Organic Place bag this week and I’m so glad we did. With one pot for the curry and the rice done in the rice cooker, not only was it a delicious and hearty meal at the end of a frosty day, there also wasn’t too much to clean up once it was all demolished.

Vegetarian Lasagna

Vegetarian Lasagna is a great family dish for so many reasons. Firstly, you can disguise a plethora of vegetables between that familiar bolognese and cheese sauce combination that most children love. It is also an excellent meal to prepare in advance to keep in the freezer for a busy day. Even better, the longer you […]
