Written by Lee on . Posted in Blog, Blog Breakfast, Uncategorized

Hey kids,

Make sure mum’s not near the computer screen; I’ve got a secret for cu!

Mums – no peeking!

Now that we’ve just got the kids here (I hope), I’ve got something special for you; something that'll make your Mother's Day a little easier. 

Are you still thinking about what to get your mum for Mother’s Day? Isn't it hard to decide where you’ll eat on the day and how to make her feel as special as she is?

Skip the long queue at the cafe and make her breakfast in bed instead!

There’s no better Mother’s Day present than having someone finally cook for you. Trust me on this one: I can totally relate. 

Breakfast in bed is a classic winner. You can let mum have a sleep in and you get to be creative in the kitchen. It's win-win! 

I’ve got the easiest recipe for you to make and I just know mum will love it.

Mother’s Day Breakfast Bowl in Bed

You can either buy her favourite store-bought granola or, if you’re feeling a little adventurous, get someone to help you make your own granola like this Cranberry and Walnut Granola. You can make some for the whole family to enjoy!

The more creative you get with her breakfast, the better. Nothing says I love you more than a pretty bowl in bed. 

So to get started, here are the ingredients you need to make mum's day special. You can print out this page and take it with you to the supermarket so you remember to get everything! 

Mother’s Day Breakfast Bowl in Bed

  • 1 cup store-bought granola of choice or my cranberry and walnut granola if you want to make your own
  • 1 cup of full fat yoghurt or coconut yoghurt if mum doesn't have dairy
  • 1/2 cup fresh or frozen berries, thawed
  •  2 tbsp coconut flakes or desiccated coconut
  • 2 tbsp pecans or almonds or any nuts mum likes

Line up the breakfast bowl on the counter.

Pour or scoop the yoghurt into your bowl.

Sprinkle the granola evenly across the bowl on top of the yoghurt. 

Scatter the berries, flaked coconut and nuts across the bowl. 

Serve without delay on a tray with a cup of tea. Get help with this if you need.

So go on, make mum’s day this Mother's Day!

Ten Herbs for a Healing Kitchen

Written by Lee on . Posted in Herbal Medicine, Uncategorized

Grow Your Own

Next time you are planning a trip down to the chemist for an over the counter drug, why not try a herbal alternative to bring relief to an everyday ailment?  Here are ten herbs that you can use in your kitchen everyday and incorporate into your menu planning...

Mint - Peppermint is both a stimulant and a relaxant and can be used to aid digestion, as it works to increase the flow of digestive juices in the stomach whilst at the same time relaxing the main muscles in the gut. It’s lovely and soothing for the lining and muscles of the colon, calming issues in this area as well as aiding diarrhea. The healing properties of peppermint are also prominent when using the herb in an oil form. Once processed into an oil, the antispasmodic properties work to soothe stomach and menstrual cramps. Due to the presence of thymol and eugenol in peppermint oil, it works effectively to balance oral and intestinal flora, reducing fermentation of undigested food and assisting in the treatment of colon issues and Irritable Bowel Syndrome. Drinking fresh peppermint tea is a wonderful way to add the benefits of peppermint into your diet. Use in salads, vegetables and lamb dishes.

Sage contains rosmarinic acid which acts as an anti-inflammatory within the body. Sage is known to help women suffering from excessive sweating due to menopause, and sage tea is a good way to incorporate it into your diet. Sage can help to regulate menstruation and is good for all female gynaecological problems. It is often used by herbalists as a remedy for respiratory infections. The oils and tannins in Sage have astringent, antiseptic and irritant properties, helping to loosen up congestion, treat coughs and soothe sore throats. Flavour meats, roasts and vegetables with fresh sage.

Tahini and Chocolate Mousse

Tahini and Choc Mousse

Dig in… It’s all good. 

What’s that word when you’re busting loose? Mousse Mousse.  There’s nothing like a little old school hip hop and chocolate to boost your mood. Hip hop and chocolate just seem to go together like Grandmaster Flash and The Furious Five.

Speaking of chocolate, have you noticed how often it’s accompanied with bucket loads of the white stuff, sugar, it can be a real downer in the health department.

So, for all you hip hop fans and chocoholics out there, I’ve created a pop-locking recipe (a concoction of all-things-good-for-you), that tastes delicious so you and your crew can dig in guilt-free.

Banana Ice Cream

Written by Lee on . Posted in Uncategorized


This is the easiest banana ice cream recipe you’ll ever make. Said me.

And because it’s so simple, why not rope the kids in to lend a hand. After all it’s an intrinsic part of their nature to learn and explore the world before them, so let’s begin their inauguration slap bang in the central hub of the home, the kitchen.

Empowering kids to make their own healthy choices and filling them with healthy, nutritional food, that will energise and revitalise them during such an important time of mental and physical growth, will benefit them not only now but also in the years to come.

The main element of this recipe is bananas; child friendly because of their lofty dose of potassium – an essential ingredient to keep pint-sized nervous systems in good shape. Without potassium, no new brain cells can be created.

The potassium and carbohydrates found in Australia’s number one selling fruit are the ideal brain food to help children stay alert. Potassium enables muscles to contract and expand efficiently during exercising, helping to prevent cramping. So don’t expect any Jungle Jim or rope swing misadventures any time soon.  Bananas contain plenty of essential nutrients like fibre, vitamin C and B6, as well as natural sugars glucose, fructose and sucrose, providing children with natural energy.

Cacao contains high levels of antioxidants and being rich in flavanol, it helps to boost brain function by enhancing blood flow to the brain, perfect for growing, active minds. The cocoa bean is especially high in magnesium converting into calcium and iron by the body, essential for growing strong, healthy bones.

My favourite benefit of this recipe is that the combination of banana and raw cacao allows children a natural sweet treat whilst ensuring they are still receiving essential nutrients that their growing bodies crave and are reliant upon.

Banana Ice Cream

2 bananas frozen and cut into chunks
1 TBS raw cacao powder
6 drops liquid stevia or sweetener of your choice
1 TBS almond butter

Pre-peel bananas cut them into chunks and place in a freezer bag in the freezer
Once frozen, place them into a food processor with the cacao, stevia and almond butter
Puree until creamy stopping to scrape the sides when needed
