Chai Coconut Chia Pudding

After many weeks of festivities and overindulgence, it’s time for this Noosa Foodie to clean up her diet. Whilst I’m a fairly healthy foodie at the best of times, I will be giving up a few of my favourite things for a little while – cheese, wine, coffee, chocolate to name a few – and following a paleo eating regime minus the meat. This Chai Coconut Chia Pudding is a perfect breakfast solution as it’s super healthy, tasty and satisfying. Flavoured with chai flavours of cinnamon, ginger, cardamom and cloves, it’s delicious served with seasonal fruit (I also like to serve it with a homemade grain-free granola). It’s easy to make too – you just need to be a little organised as it’s best made the day before to allow the chia seeds to gel and the pudding to set.  It will keep up to 5 days in a sealed container stored in the fridge.

Brownie Balls

Apart from the pristine environment, plethora of activities and fantastic facilities, one of the highlights was the food.  There was no going hungry in this health retreat as we were spoilt with breakfast, morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner each day – all nourishing and balanced, lovingly prepared and definitely delicious. Creating nutritious food that tastes amazing is one of my favourite challenges, and with this in mind this week I share with you my recipe for Brownie Balls. If you are endeavouring to clean up your diet and fill your body with healthy foods, these scrumptious little morsels will hit the spot if you have a chocolate craving.

Recipe: Barbequed Barramundi with Pineapple Salsa

The Sunshine Coast is pineapple country and locals and visitors can enjoy the sweetest of pineapples at a fraction of the price that city dwellers pay. Because they are readily available all year round, I normally have one sitting in my fruit bowl and enjoy using them in my cooking in a variety of ways.  This recipe came to fruition because I am currently on a fairly strict eating regime (a Spring detox) and wanted something fresh and tasty for dinner, as an alternative to the heavy lentil curries and brown rice dishes I have been eating for the past week. Pineapples are gorgeous in a salsa, and marry really well with fresh chilli and mint.
