Your go-to brekkie is…

I have two… One for winter and one for summer! My go to winter breakfast would have to be a homemade apple crumble! I have been totally loving this recently and cannot get enough. I throw wholegrain oats, seeds, ground almonds, cinnamon, coconut, maple syrup and coconut oil into a blender, blitz it up then scatter it over apples and bake it. I have just started turning it into a Breakfast Bar that I make in advance and can reheat without much effort. I like to eat it with greek yoghurt. Summer, I am all about the smoothie bowls. The more toppings and crunch, the better. I usually try and keep a batch of my muesli around to scatter over the top so it is quick and easy.

Breakfast BarYour go-to lunch is…

I find lunch is the hardest meal of the day. Often leftovers are what I find easiest but that never happens much as my partner, Mark, gets them all before I get a chance. I often throw a salad together with chicken or just vegetables, such as kumara and greens. My favourite would have to be my chicken, kumara and corn salad topped with parmesan shavings. I usually try and keep a loaf of sourdough in the cupboard for the days where there is nothing much left. I top this with basil, onion, greens, cherry tomatoes and any vegetables I have on hand, along with some olive oil and/or feta. I would also try and have a smoothie or some fruit and almond butter, as while I am breastfeeding Indie it is important that I have a substantial lunch to keep my milk supply up.

Chicken SaladYour go-to dinner is…

I love cooking dinner! In fact I love cooking most meals. I am that person who changes what they have for dinner every week. I always browse through recipe books for new ideas. I am, however, very partial to Thai and Vietnamese flavours so will usually be known to make these kind of dishes each week. Some of my favourites would have to be:
Satay – I make this with fresh peanuts, coriander, ginger, coconut cream, honey, lemon and a few other ingredients whizzed up in my blender. We either have it over a salad or with a big vegetable stir-fry and rice.
Thai curry – this is one of my go-to meals when I am in a rush. I simply throw a whole lot of vegetables, including kumara and pumpkin, into my wok with some curry paste and coconut cream and let it do its magic!

SatayDessert or no dessert…

Always dessert! I have a massive sweet tooth. I also find that since I am breastfeeding I get extra hungry later at night and of course this is reason to have dessert, right?! I usually try and stick to healthier options such as my Apple Crumble (it strikes again!), some of my Bliss Ball Bites (my fave is the Cookie Dough Bites) or a couple of squares of dark chocolate.

Caramel Cookie DoughWhat you reach for when a snack attack hits…

My go-to snack would have to be apple with Poppy + Olive Almond Butter. It is my favourite thing ever! If I am feeling extra hungry I will make a smoothie or top some of my Seed Loaf with almond butter and chia jam. I am also always sampling the baking that I make for The Wholesome Co. I am quite partial to these Peach and Almond Muffins at the moment and have been making them every week!

Indie and BreadYour fave foodie destination…

I will admit, I loved Italy with all my heart. So much that if our next child is a girl I want to call her Florence! It is not all pizza and cheese, there are so many other delicious salads, olives and more. I also lived in Barcelona for a year and fell in love with Spanish food, such as tapas. I dream of visiting Thailand and eating my way around! My favourite local food spot is Demo Deli; it has the best cakes and baking around for when I am all out of my own. They also have a great array of fresh juices and coconut yoghurt to take home!

Three foods you can’t live without…

Only three?! Haha. Chocolate would have to be number 1. It is so cliche but I love it. I am not a coffee drinker so instead chocolate wins my heart. I am always baking cocoa-flavoured things too. Almond butter comes a close second; I use it in so many things. And of course apple comes in as a third. I eat these things everyday so they must be my favourites, right?! I think I could also eat potatoes everyday! The old potato has such a harsh rep but I’m a lover.

Your ultimate foodie indulgence…

Pizza hands down. I love a good homemade pizza with fresh basil and tomato. A real comfort food that I always crave when I just want to put my feet up and relax.

The recipe that’ll always get you drooling is…

I love looking at all the Donna Hay fresh and light recipes but in particular I always drool over anything chocolate or caramel. I really want to make this Caramel Fig Cake!
