Day 5- Burrito Bowl Recipe

Dinner tonight failed, mainly because I spent the afternoon eating chips and dips… oops. But… my lunch was delicious, and it took a while to cook so it makes up for this evenings laziness! 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…

Day 3- Tuna salad and Roasted Veggies and Rice Recipe

This is only going to be a very short blog today, mainly because both my lunch and dinner were very simple. Delicious, but simple. I mostly just want to add a few pictures and a note here or there about my day. My breakfasts haven’t been planned, but I have: gluten free porridge oats, fruit,…

Barramundi and Veggie Rice with Homemade Lemon Aioli Sauce Recipe

All the elements of tonight’s dinner were not only simple, but also low cost. I had already purchased the barramundi- a white, meaty fish- from Aldi. The fillets are sold skin-on, frozen in bags of 1kg. It’s really rubbish of me but I can’t remember an exact price, as it was last week that I…

My weekly shop at Adelaide Central Market

Food shopping since I have been in Australia has mainly consisted of constantly trying to work out the exchange rate, desperately remembering ingredients and figuring out how to carry everything home on the bus. I decided I had to make a change, become more organised with both my time and money, and stop eating like…

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…

Raspberry and White Chocolate Gluten Free Cheesecake

I have taken a little break from cooking and blogging over the past couple of months, mainly because of exams, but also because I have recently become gluten free, due to my IBS. As someone who loves bread, cake, pasta and basically all things gluten, this has been hard, and I have found it challenging…

Asian-Inspired Grilled Mackerel

Mackerel is an oily fish that’s also rich in omega-3 fatty acids, the kind of fats we want in our diet. As well as being beneficial health wise, mackerel is also a very affordable fish and I managed to get mine on sale in Sainsburys for next to nothing. I have never cooked mackerel before…

Spicy Turkey Bolognese

Once again, I found myself sifting through my freezer, before I finish Uni for the year, and I came across a pack of lean turkey mince. Not only is turkey mince far cheaper than beef or lamb mince it is also far healthier. I really enjoy treating myself, but it is great finding healthier recipes…
