Keeping It Clean + Natural

“I’ve designed my range of Organic Pea Protein & Pure Native WPI to be the purest form of protein supplement available on the market. Everything I tried was full of junk and cheap fillers that caused bloating and weight gain, the total opposite of what I wanted, so I was compelled to create a protein supplement that really was good for me and provided the perfect nutritional support I needed”.

Teresa Talks Healthy Menu Options

This week, I sat down with the team from taste.com.au to talk all things healthy eating… When it comes to the dietary demands of customers, chef Teresa Cutter has seen it all. She initially trained in the classics, with French chefs, but ended up running her own café. She now concentrates on creating food with recipes that use fresh and unprocessed recipes. “At one stage I had three banana breads,” she says of what was on offer at the Avalon cafe, which she has since... Read More

Kale, Spinach + Feta Pie

This is a delicious meal that I often make for my weekday dinner or as a portable healthy lunch. Preparation is effortless and the final result is beautiful as the fresh subtle flavours of green dance in your mouth. I love to serve mine with a large garden salad made simply of leaves from a variety of lettuce – tossed with the finger-tips ever so lightly and drizzled with French Style dressing just before serving. Enjoy ! What’s great about it: Kale is part of the... Read More

Margherita Pizza With Almond + Sunflower Crust

This is a delicious vegetarian classic of roasted tomato sauce, milky Buffalo mozzarella and sun-ripened tomato on a thin, crisp pizza base.  I’ve also added a light  spread of pesto to the almond base that gives the pizza a delicious basil aroma and flavour when eating it.  What I love about this crust is that it’s the perfect use for leftover almond pulp from making your home-made almond mylk. For a crisp base to a pizza crust I always recommend using a pizza stone for... Read More

Roasted Carrot With Almond Dukkah + Labne

I absolutely LOVE this salad !  It’s a staple in my home and it’s delicious warm straight out of the oven or cold the next day for a delicious healthy lunch.

Steamed White Fish In Ginger + Turmeric

This is a delicious immune boosting recipe that I regularly make at home. I loved the simplicity of the dish and the extraordinary flavour that marries so well with any type of seafood, especially delicate proteins such as fish.  You can choose to steam the fish in the classic French style en papilotte, that basically means “cooked in a bag”.  This method allows the food to hold in moisture and flavour as it steams inside it’s little pouch and it’s a clean and healthy... Read More

Warm Roasted Pumpkin + Apple Salad With Goats Feta, Walnuts and Apple Balsamic

This is a beautiful marriage of seasonal flavours that evokes a hint of sweetness and spice. Rounds of pumpkin are roasted with olive oil and a touch of cinnamon which intensifies the delicious flavour.  I’ve also sliced red apple into generous rounds and pan roasted them until golden – the secret is to also squeeze over a little orange juice just before removing the pan off the heat which takes the flavour to another level and add extra freshness and aroma. I love... Read More

This is a wholesome nourishing soup that I love to make when I need extra goodness for my body. It’s very economical and fuss free to make and I always cook up extra to last several meals.

Zucchini Linguini With Spinach + Basil Pesto

I love making my zucchini linguini !  It’s a great alternative to traditional pasta and it has the added benefit of being nutrient dense and kind to the digestive system. What I love about this dish is that you can enjoy zucchini linguini  raw or lightly heated through. The pesto slightly softens the zucchini as the aromatics penetrate right through and you end up with a glorious plate of deliciousness that is irresistible.  I love to serve mine simply with a grating... Read More

Classic Tomato Soup

This is a beautiful classic tomato soup that has been a part of my cooking repertoire for many years. When I make soups in my home, I go for simplicity and freshness, so that I can immerse my senses in the unadulterated flavour of the ingredients. I don’t use a vegetable stock, I use plain filtered water as I find that using stock can sometimes interfere and complicate that naturalness of this soup. Adding 1 red apple adds a wonderful hint of sweetness and a generous grind... Read More

Smashed Organic Eggs with Mustardy French Dressing

One of my favourite all time foods are organic free-range eggs.  We always have a dozen in the fridge at all times as they make a perfect meal for breakfast, lunch or quick healthy dinner. I remember my Great Aunty cooking up lots of egg dishes when I was growing up.  We used to raise our own hens and grow our own veggies, so a lot of our meals were based on egg and vegetable dishes.  I love to eat eggs pretty much any way, but one of my favourites is to smash them with aromatics... Read More

It works beautifully with Moroccan baked organic eggs,  cinnamon roasted sweet potato or veggie burgers topped with beetroot relish and a crunchy salad. I’m not a fan of store bought versions as they are not as moorish like the ones you... Read More

Why Native Whey Protein Isolate is better than Protein Concentrate

Minestrone with Vegetables of the Moment

6 Steps To Eating Seasonally

I love the change of season. Its revitalizing seeing the weather patterns shift and trees change colour, little signs to let us know that a new cycle is ready to begin. What most excites me though, is the availability of a whole new batch of beautiful seasonal produce. Time to experiment with different foods and flavours or rehash old favourite recipes that were enjoyed this time last year. Synchronising your diet with the seasons is certainly not a new concept. It was a necessity... Read More

WHITE SAUCE – 10 Ways

I remember making bucket loads of béchamel (white sauce) when I was working as a chef for a variety of dishes such as lasagne, vegetable bakes, fish pie, moussaka, cheese sauces and soufflé.  Typically the sauce was made by making a white roux (equal quantities of butter + flour gently cooked in a pot to a sandy texture) then pouring in hot milk whilst stirring to achieve a wonderful silky smooth white sauce.  The milk was often scented with aromatics such onion, clove and... Read More

NATURAL PROTEIN – Why Healthy Chef Pure Protein is so good !

Protein is considered by many to be the most important macronutrient for humans because of the numerous roles protein plays in the body.

They are found in your skin, bones, muscle and all your organ tissue. In addition, they are used to produce hormones, enzymes and haemoglobin that carries oxygen in the blood. The main function of protein is to build and repair, as well as sustain muscle. Good... Read More
