As a general rule eating straight from the garden or fresh food section of the fridge is a winning formula for great health, but sometimes it’s handy to be able to use ingredients stored in the pantry or freezer to whip up a snack that’s not only healthy but satiating too. These healthy gummies are not only healing for the gut and beneficial for your skin but they’re super easy to make, especially if you have a thermomix. In just 10 minutes (plus an hour or two in the fridge) they can be popped out of the moulds and into your tummy!

You can’t beat home made organic chicken broth (and do try to use an organic chicken if you can, even better would be a pasture-raised organic chicken!). Great for anyone with digestive issues, thyroid issues, inflammation and auto immune disorders. Chicken broth is extremely nourishing and provides a vast array of minerals and electrolytes in an easy form to digest. You can simmer your broth for 1 – 2 hours, or as long as 24 hours. Once you’ve made this recipe you’ll be hooked for life!

If you’re a choc-a-holic like me, or you just have a bit of a sweet tooth but like to keep it healthy, you’ll love these choc bliss balls. An added bonus – this is a great activity for the kiddies, they love to get their hands dirty rolling up the balls in the coconut at the end. Plus they get to learn from a young age how to make healthy snacks. My little one has helped me make these since he was 2 years old.

Ever thought about putting carrots in your smoothies? Not only are they full of fiber but they also contain vitamins C, B3, B6, E and K as well as minerals such as iron, magnesium, phosphorus, calcium and potassium. What about turmeric in your smoothies? Yep! Turmeric’s been used for thousands of years as a remedy for stomach and liver ailments. Also turmeric has anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant, anti-tumour, anti-bacterial, and anti-viral properties. Rheumatoid arthritis? Maybe throw in an extra half a teaspoon.

This deliciously healthy smoothie is crafted with all sorts of goodness. The coconut contains electrolytes essential for muscle function. The collagen provides amino acids for muscle, tendon and ligament repair as well as great for gut health, skin, hair and nails. The antioxidants in the blueberries help to offset oxidative stress from a hard workout and adds a great colour. What’s great about this smoothie is that each ingredient helps you, there are no fillers or anything unnecessary.

Here’s my favourite recipe for a post workout smoothie. Ingredients: 1 cup organic coconut flesh 1 cup organic coconut water 1/4 teaspoon of organic vanilla powder 1 raw biodynamic egg

Coconut milk is a great alternative to dairy milk, soy, rice or other processed milks. It’s super quick and easy to make and costs a fraction of what you might pay at the shops for organic coconut milk. You’ll know exactly what’s in it (because you made it) and it will be nice and fresh. You’ll also be avoiding the BPA that’s often found inside of tinned foods. There’s just too many wins here! You can include the coconut milk in smoothies, baking or even your coffee (go on, try it, you might like it!).
