Banana Bread (Gluten-Free)
This recipe is from my cookbook Purely Delicious. It's probably one of the most downloaded recipes on The Healthy Chef website and it makes a nice change from the typical store bought banana breads that are generally high in refined white flour and sugar. I love using macadamia nut oil and olive oil when baking, both are a delicious source of monounsaturated fats that can help support good health and wellbeing. It's yummy on its own or topped with a little ricotta + honey or almond butter…
I've been in a baking mood for the last week and thought I'd share another one of my favourites from the 80/20 eBook. These high protein blueberry muffins are practically a meal in itself and are lovely for breakfast on the run served with your favourite cup of tea or long black. Each muffin has just over 7 grams of protein which will help fill you up, keep blood sugars stable and support a healthy metabolism. I've made them with almonds which are kind to the digestive system and won't bloat…

Here is my delicious lemon and yoghurt cupcake recipe. Almonds are loaded with protein + good anti-inflamatory fats that help promote health. Eggs are a great source of protein that can promote a healthy immune system. The addition of lemon helps to activate the bicarb, that makes them rise + yoghurt gives these cupcakes a wonderful flavour. 3 cups (300 g / 10 ½ oz) almond meal ½ teaspoon baking soda 2 organic eggs juice and zest from 1 lemon ½ cup (180 g / 6 ¼ oz) raw honey 1 teaspoon…
Lean Beef Stroganoff
What I love about this stroganoff is that it's a one-pan dish that's easy to cook. I like to vary the depth of flavours and use earthy herbs such as thyme, that marries perfectly with the mushrooms. Beef is a delicious form of complete protein that supplies amino acids to build and repair, as well as sustain lean muscle. A protein-rich diet can also naturally increase levels of GH and testosterone when combined with nutrient-rich vegetables, quality sleep and regular exercise.
Roast Pumpkin + Spinach Lasagne
This lasagne gives your body a massive hit of antioxidants. Pumpkin is high in immune-boosting vitamin A, which is important for eye health, protein synthesis, reproduction and a healthy immune system. It's also high in fibre to help lower cholesterol and has good amounts of potassium which helps to regulate fluid and mineral balance in the body. I normally make up a big baking dish and enjoy for lunch or dinner the next day with a large salad or steamed green vegetables, as it keeps well…
One of my favourite things to do when the weather gets a little colder is to get into the kitchen and bake apple crumble. I love it how the whole house gets filled with the sweet aromas of vanilla and spice. I love to use red pink lady apples or golden delicious apples as they are naturally sweet so you don't have to add any sugar.

Pumpkin Pie With Macadamia + Coconut Shortcrust
What I love about this pie is the simplicity of the macadamia nut crust and how it marries effortlessly with coconut and vanilla bean. I've used jap pumpkin to make this pie as it's so naturally sweet, so it doesn't require much work when it comes to sweetness. I also wanted to keep this pie whole food and plant based so I've used agar agar in place of the traditional eggs that are used to set most pumpkin pies. A little goes a long way and only small delicate portions are needed to satisfy.
