Millet PorridgeThis gluten free, dairy free and sugar free millet porridge has been my go-to breakfast over these cooler winter months. Every year I seem to find a new fave breaky, last year I was obsessed with buckwheat porridge, but this year millet porridge has won my heart. Millet is actually seed (like quinoa and buckwheat) which packs a nutritional punch and is 100% gluten free. It doubles in size so for females I recommend 1/4 cup which will make 1/2 a cup, and for males I recommend 1/2 cup which will make 1 cup. Millet is a good source of some B-vitamins, and some minerals such as magnesium, zinc, copper, phosphorus, manganese. Furthermore, it's also contains 6gms of protein per cup and is a good source of fiber. I like to pair the millet with chia seeds for extra fibre, coconut oil for a healthy fat source, maca powder for hormonal health and energy and protein to help stablize my blood sugar levels.
My Go-To Buckwheat PorridgeThose who have been following me for a while will know that I'm a huge buckwheat lover (sorry about all the instagram posts about my buckwheat porridge, I just love it so much). There's nothing quite like a nice warming bowl of porridge on these cold winter morning! A few reasons why I love buckwheat... buckwheat is actually a seed, which is gluten free, low GI and is great for cleansing the intestines! Buckwheat groats are an amazing superfood, they are really nourishing to our nervous system, as they contain a range of B vitamin’s which is crucial for nerve function, as well as the amino acid tryptophan, which helps to make serotonin, the FEEL GOOD hormone. Buckwheat has a light nutty flavour, it's high in amino acids, fiber and essential minerals manganese, magnesium, zinc and copper. It’s also rich in anti-oxidants and is anti-inflammatory. This is a really nice, warming and grounding way to start that day. It's important to soak the buckwheat overnight to help make the seed a lot more digestible. It also shortens the cooking time.

Easy Paleo Granola (Nut Free, Vegan Friendly)Here is a delicious, crunchy granola that is gluten-free, grain free, nut free and refined sugar free. It's delicious in so many ways, serve it with some unsweetened almond or coconut milk, top it with fruit, yoghurt, or enjoy it on top of smoothies (my favourite way) or you can eat it on its own as a yummy and crunchy snack. This granola is high in protein and healthy fats from all the different kinds of seeds, coconut flakes and coconut oil. It comes together quickly by mixing the ingredients together, coating it with melted coconut oil, cinnamon and brown rice malt syrup for a little sweetness which makes it rich and adds to the nutty flavor, then baking it.
Easy Zucchini FrittersThese fritters are unbelievably easy to make, containing only 7 ingredients (mostly spices). It’s the perfect lazy weekday dinner meal for 1, or weekend breakfast or lunch meal. They are wonderfully nutritious, vegetarian and paleo friendly. The trick to making these zucchini fritters work is by making sure you drain any excess moisture from them by squeezing the living daylights out of the zucchini once grated. Another trick is if you salt the grated zucchini and let it drain in a sieve in the sink, the salt will help draw out the excess water. Play around and have some fun with this recipe. You could easily add 1/2 green onion to it, sliced up bacon, or sliced red capsicum for something a little different.

It's jam packed with nutrients to make you glow from the inside out. Pineapple - rich in vitamin C, important for skin collagen. Banana - Also contains vitamin C as well as B6 which plays a vital role in maintaining the integrity and elasticity of the skin. Spinach - rich in antioxidants, specifically lutein which is important for eye health and will help to make your eyes sparkle! It's also loaded with B vitamins, vitamin C, E, potassium, iron, calcium and magnesium. Protein - A key nutrient for ageless beautiful skin! Skin hair and nails are all made up of protein so it's vital to include protein in your diet in order to maintain beautiful skin, hair and nails. Coconut water - Very hydrating. If you want beautiful skin you need to be hydrated! If your skin is not getting a sufficient amount of water the lack of hydration will present itself by turning your skin dry, tight and flaky.
