Healthy and Balanced Family Recipes

‘My recipes are colourful, pretty, balanced and designed to inspire happy & sustainable eating habits’


3 ideas to mix up your morning routine.

  1.  Peanut butter banana smash.
    1 tb of 100% peanut butter on 2 slices of whole grain toast, topped with 1 banana, sliced. Or try 1 slice as a nourishing and satisfying snack.
  2. Smoothies
    Easy, yet slightly fancy breakfast idea for the family; cocoa berry smoothies. No super foods or special ingredients, add 250mls milk (of choice), 1/2 cup frozen berries, 1/2 banana, 1.5 Weetbix, 1/2 cup Greek yoghurt. Blend the ingredients well and dust with cocoa for the kids. Use up any leftovers to make smoothie icy-poles for an after school snack.
  3. Overnight oats
    In the spirit of Spring, try colourful, flavoured overnight oats. The bonus is you can whip up a few batches whilst you’re making your morning porridge. I try to halve cooking time by making double batches of meals where I can. The children can help or request their own special variations.

Per serve:
1/3 cup rolled oats
1/3 cup milk
2 tb yoghurt
1/2 banana (to add fresh tomorrow)
Additions: nut butter, honey, cinnamon, seeds, flaked nuts.
Combine in a jar for easy transport, refrigerate.
