Verbena Harissa Roasted Chicken, Sweet Potato and Spinach One Tray. You know how we like to minimise on washing up?! This family chicken dish is prepped in 5 minutes, cooked in 30 and uses just one tray. No flavour compromised however! The Verbena Harissa Paste (you can make your own but we used Belazu’s) is fragrant and lemony with a mellow hint of chilli. This dish was created with a nearly empty fridge. What to do with some chicken thighs? Keep staples like the Verbena Harissa, chicken and sweet potatoes in your fridge and it’s easy peasy to knock up a healthy family dinner. ⠀
8 chicken thighs, skin on⠀
300g cubed sweet potatoes⠀
3 red onions quartered⠀
3 tbsp Verbena Harissa (Belazu’s is excellent)⠀
3 tbsp pomegranate seeds⠀
100g fresh spinach⠀
2 lemons sliced⠀
Coat the chicken thighs with the Verbena Harissa and season.⠀
Toss the red onion quarters together with the sweet potatoes and some olive oil in a large roasting tray.⠀
Place the chicken thighs on top and season the whole dish. ⠀
Place a slice of lemon on top of each thigh and put the tray in the oven for 30 minutes.⠀
Stir the spinach around the sweet potatoes so that it wilts.⠀
Scatter over the pomegranate seeds and coriander and serve!⠀
What do you mean I can’t have a #glutenfree toastie?! Hold up, the @makerandmonger alternative is toasted melty raclette on top of fresh Sunshine Coast shiitakes and kipfler taters, served with pickles?!? I’m MORE than okay with that!!! Check out my excited hands in the second pic hehehehe
Even though I couldn’t try them, my fellow staff members and students confirmed- ‘Best Toastie Ever’! Thanks for your time and tasties, new cheese friends (everyone should have some cheese friends!)!
I'll be making this in the morning! I am loving my complete shakes and so do my kids. I love adding them into smoothies like this ❤️ the plant based protein powder is so smooth and tastes fantastic. I have tried some other out there and they do not even compare to this goodness. My littlest comes running when she heres the vitamix or me shaking the belnder cup- she will sip half of my drink. It makes me feel so good to get all these nutrients into my family's body in the morning.
It’s a cold, wet, miserable day here... perfect for chicken noodle soup!
I have a big pot of soup bubbling away on the stove for dinner!
What’s for dinner at your place tonight?

The burning question ❔ it is a combination of things to look out for. Loss of tongue thrust (when you pop something near a babies mouth, automatically their tongue will thrust forward to protect them from choking), genuine interest in food - you’ll just know! Babies at different ages will become more curious so it’s important to differentiate if they’re being merely curious with anything you’ve got and they’d be happy with even just a spoon at the table or if they’re genuinely desperate to eat what you’re eating, sitting up unassisted and around the age of 6 months, not prior to 4 months, closer to 6 months the better! Blog post coming on the timing of food introduction soon and the WHY.

Check out this colourful stack! in the middle there is a little steak...cooked to perfection of course. It went perfectly with my pile of beetroot relish, blue cheese and shredded greens from the garden.
The littlest has been on a bit of a mushroom strike lately 🙅♂️ 🍄 🙅♂️. Being #plantbased I sometimes get stressed when a vegetable becomes a ‘no’. Tonight I decided to use his veggie budd plate to make things fun @veggiebudsclub
He started off with a little resistance but warmed when we reminded him mushrooms had been his favourite, and explained they had healthy super powers to help him run fast 🏃, play ⚽️, fight off velociraptors 🦖 ... (we are parents of a toddler, forgive us 💁🏼♀️🕺🏼). He had a few and I was relieved he remembered he liked them 😅. It’s a #veggiewin tonight 💪🏼//
Dinner tonight was simple but tasty 😋:
My mom’s homemade gnocchi with her tomato sauce 🍅 (I added a few diced mushrooms and nutritional yeast)
Broccoli and mushrooms sautéed with a little soy sauce 🥦 in my cast iron.
Happy Monday ✌🏼 ☀️ 🌱 💪🏼
✨“Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.” ✨. We’ve all heard it a thousand times but do we actually register the message? 💡 The more I study, the more I research, and the more I experience, the more this age old quote resonates with me and becomes an even greater inspiration for the way I choose to eat, drink and nourish myself and my family 🥦🥑🥥 Does that mean I spend all my time and all our family budget at health food stores? No, it doesn’t. It means we load up on plants with as many colours as possible, good fats, and protein. Our bread 🍞 is sourdough, we eat whole grain, and leave everything else for sometimes. It doesn’t have to be time consuming or expensive, it just has to be real 🍏💚🥦
Was it just me, or was the first week of June quite the whirlwind? I’ve had three photo shoots in the last week (another one today!), the opening of my family’s restaurant last night (post to come!)…MoreMore
