Alisha is our new administration officer at The Organic Place but she is no stranger to an organic lifestyle. Very early on in life, Alisha cottoned on to the fact that her body reacted badly to pesticides. Ever since she could cook for herself, Alisha has purchased organic produce. She loves that her family reap […]
When our lives get busy it is easy to fall back on ready made food. Luckily for me we have an amazing local cafe that makes delicious home-style pies and pastries which I often buy and freeze for crazy days. I recently bought the most delicious roast veg and egg pie there as a lunch option for myself and saw that they also sold them in a family size. It was simple to heat up in the oven at the end of a work day and serve with some steamed veg from The Organic Place.
It got me thinking I should try and replicate my own pie to freeze. Whilst there is a lot of cooking time, unless you’re using leftover roast veggies, it was very easy to make. This dish is great for Meat Free Monday or to be portioned out for lunches or even breakfast!
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.
