Blueberry and Ginger Smoothie

This is my favourite smoothie to make at the moment. Its super simple and uses only 5 staple ingredients. I love to make it in the morning before work when I feel like a lighter breakfast. The frozen blueberries and fresh ginger create such a refreshing flavour and the banana and oats give it a bit of body so you’ll power through the morning.

Immune Boosting Turmeric Cider + Bali

For my most recent holiday, i was lucky enough to travel to the magical island paradise of Bali. Where you eat tropical fruit breakfast lunch and dinner and turmeric is in everything. Naturally, once I arrived I ate my way around the island. Sampling all the local meals and checking out the healthy food spots. My favourite meal was a dish called Gado Gado.

Green Goodness Smoothie Bowl

If you’re new to healthy eating or are just looking for a way to add more fruits and veggies into your diet then look no further!

It’s made with simple ingredients that most of you will already have in the fridge or can pick up from the supermarket. It’s the perfect green smoothie for newbies as it’s not overly green tasting. The crisp green apple and lime cover up the mild flavour of the spinach and the avocado makes it delightfully creamy.
