No Meat Monday-Friday Meal Prep

There’s nothing worse than going to school, or uni, or work, and eating the same boring packed meals over and over again. Or, due to saving time, or lack of planning, grabbing something to eat from a cafe or supermarket. On average in Australia, a salad/sandwich meal combo at lunch can cost up to $10,…

Spring Leek and Pea Veggie Risotto Recipe

It is quite often that when I write my food blogs, it is actually the first time I have ever cooked the dish. So, I have to admit, this recipe is no different. Prior to making this, I had never made a risotto from scratch on my own before. I have eaten a lot of…

Cauliflower and Chickpea Burger/Hash Recipe

I was unsure about blogging this, mainly because it didn’t turn out at all as I had planned.

My lunch today was a veggie burrito bowl and it was actually really tasty, I made myself proud. The components were:…

Day 4- Garlic and Broccoli Spaghetti Recipe

I haven’t exactly tried to hide my love of garlic, but this meal makes it the main attraction. Following on from my salad at lunch I was craving some carbs, so I am glad that spaghetti was on my meal plan. My salad was tasty, using my leftover veg and rice from last night to…

Mexican Bean Chilli Recipe

It appears I am sticking with the theme of sauces for the moment as today I made spicy Mexican bean chilli to go alongside chicken fajitas. This bean chilli is so easy, needing minimal effort and only a few ingredients. It is great to have with rice or as a meat-substitute for burritos/fajitas or with…

My first Aussie blog- Homemade pasta sauce!

Since being in Australia one thing I have found out is that everything is very pricey. Food and drink especially, generally because their wages are far higher than ours in the UK, but this means I am having to be even thriftier. One thing that I always find cheap and easy to make is homemade…
