Sunshine Breakfast Smoothie

Drinks + Smoothies The Healthy Chef - Teresa Cutter

This time of year I start craving hot chocolate. Something warm, sweet and nourishing that’s healthy and not going to start turning me into a marshmallow during winter. Buy good quality cocoa powder for this one. I vary from raw varieties such as loving Earth to quality cocoa powders...

Protein Power Balls

Protein Power Balls

This is a power packed protein ball recipe from my new cookbook. It's loaded with protein at 10 grams per serve and also high in superfoods, therefore bursting with antioxidants. I normally whip up a batch at the beginning of the week because it's a fantastic grab and go snack if I'm rushing around and need a little sustenance, or purely just to satisfy any sugar cravings when the afternoon munchies hit.

Cauliflower Cheese

Use whatever milk you prefer - but the real secret is to have extra hot…

Ribolita

Ribollita - The Healthy Chef - Teresa Cutter

A delicious and warming main course style soup that originated from Tuscany - but somehow found it's way onto our Polish dinner table. As a young girl I remember my great Aunt cooking large pots of this soup from ingredients sourced from her back yard garden. It was a staple Cold weather dish that was more like a stew than a soup and consisted of a heap of vegetables slowly simmered with beans and fresh garden herbs. Sometimes Savoy cabbage or Silver beet was used in place of the tuscan…
