Favourite Salad: Sweet Potato, Spinach, Feta and Pine Nuts

I thought it was time I mixed it up and shared with you my favourite salad recipe. For a long time I was very stuck in my ways when it came to food, but as I grew older I explored different flavours and boy have I never looked back! When I first was given this salad to try I was extremely hesitant. Not only had I never tried sweet potato before, I never really liked spinach.  Well, my thoughts were wrong, it was delicious, and it has been my favourite ever since so I just wanted to share it with you. Hope you try it out and like it just as much as I do :) 

(Just a side note: don’t forget to enter my giveaway as it closes on Wednesday)

Method

Pro Tip: Dress your food. Keep it interesting.

I know it can’t be just me who gets bored of eating the same food day in, day out. So todays post is about keeping your diet interesting. DRESS YOUR FOOD!

The better health channel tells us, “Eating many different foods helps maintain a healthy, well-balanced and interesting diet that provides adequate nutrition.”

Ok so the ultimate goal for anyone is to eat as much junk food as possible whilst maintaining a Miranda Kerr figure. Am I right? But let’s be honest, that is NEVER going to happen!

So my pro tip for you to keep motivated whilst on your diet/clean eating journey is to mix it up. Make your breakfast so deliciously appealing that even if  the choice for fast food was available you would still pick your healthy meal. Its honestly as simple as taking a bit of extra time and dressing up your food. Sick of a boring fruit salad? Put them on skewers. Sick of boring porridge? Cover your bowl with seasonal fruit and nuts. It’s so simple!!!

And what’s better? You will be able to proudly upload a picky of your creation to instagram and hashtag healthy eating and watch the likes roll in. :)

Eating healthy can be challenging. Just remember to mix it up and keep things interesting. Dress up your food, your body (and your instagram followers) will thanks you for it :)

Current Obsession

Surely it’s not just me who late at night wants that naughty snack. So I thought I’d share a quick and easy snack with you that’s half naughty, half good – strawberries with melted milk chocolate!!! Ok, if I am honest it is definitely still naughty… but what the heck, it’s delicious!

What you’ll need:

–          Strawberries

–          Cooking chocolate (I use cadbury’s chocolate melts – YUM!)

–          China bowl

–          Teaspoon

And it’s as easy as popping this in the microwave for 30 seconds at a time – taking it out, stirring – popping it back in until its melted (this all depends on how much chocolate you are  wanting to melt).

Voila! Easy, yummy snack! Enjoy :)

Here’s a pick of one I had a while back (best study snack ever!)

How to spice up boring oats/porridge

Eating plain oats every day is boring. Don’t get my wrong it’d be full of fibre and extremely nutritious but zzzzzzz… So to spice up my boring oats at breakky I decided to start playing with the flavours a little. I now add cinnamon and green apple to my morning oats and it just gives it that bit of punch that takes oats to the next level. The warmness of the oats with the crunchy green apples, yum! This morning I tried it with crushed walnuts as well. Will keep you posted if I come up with any other great flavour combos.

Yummy, healthy, sugar free biscuits

A healthy cookie made with just four ingredients, is that even possible?!? Yes it is! Mashed bananas, rolled oats, crushed walnuts and cinnamon to taste. Healthy and delicious HASHTAG winning!!

You could have these as a snack or with breakfast, best part – completely guilt free!

First step get yo ingredients together. For this we will need 3 small bananas/2 medium ones (SUPER RIPE! I CANNOT STRESS THIS POINT ENOUGH, HENCE THE CAPITALS!!), 1 cup of rolled oats, ¼ cup of crushed walnuts and cinnamon for flavour.

Image

Step two, line two trays with baking paper and turn your oven on to 180⁰ (fan forced).

Next, get out a bowl and mash the bananas.

Image

After these are mashed add 1 cup of rolled outs and combine.

Image

Add in your crushed walnuts.

Image

Lastly, add your cinnamon – in the end I think I used a whole teaspoon (love that shiz!).

Image

Roll these into small balls (should make about 16) and pop these in the oven for 10-15 minutes or until brown.

Image

And you sir are done! Easy as that!
