500g chicken- 3 different recipes.


Feeding the fam sure isn’t easy and when it’s a Monday night and the week is long it’s even less appealing!

Throw in a few food intolerances and a fussy teenager and it’s a downright nightmare.

I have been buying Woolworths Organic chicken for a while now and basically anything with chicken is a hit in our house!

I made a chicken snack pack using Taste.com.au recipe and some McCain’s shoestring fries! Squirt on some barbecue sauce and ketchup and you are good to go. Was a hit with Mr fussy teen and a relief for me!

For myself & hubby less is more. I diced the chicken and tossed it in some olive oil (organic of course), chives and thyme add salt as well to taste. Heat up a skillet and melt nut or plant based butter and stir fry chicken, add diced potatoes and cook until tender. Before cooking chicken boil enough water in a seperate pot to cook 1 cup of brown rice & quinoa. Once cooked, drain and add to cooked chicken and potatoes. Stir fry to mix. Portion into plates and serve.

I left some in the pan and added a Masterfoods honey chicken satchet and stir fried until combined. That kept child no.2 happy.

This also kept mum happy because there was minimal washing up! See Monday isn’t so bad after all!

Happy eating!

Sometimes it’s so hard to workout what ti have for dinner. Working long days or studying sometimes we are too tired to even think about cooking. Take away food become our go to choice.

This not only impacts your wallet but has a tremendous impact on your health! I am a big fan of one pot or one pan dinner. They are quick and easy and cleaning up is a breeze afterwards!

Waffles and Fruit Breakfast

Feeding the kids on school holidays can be horrendous. Who doesn’t like this and who doesn’t like that. Cocco Pops were so last week.

I like to keep staples like premade pancakes, piklets and waffles. Although they are not the healthiest choice they are a crowd favourite. Pair it with their favourite fruits and you should have a winner every time!

Woolworths have a great range of pre-made breakfast items to suit every taste.

Light and Easy Lunch Idea


After a couple of weeks of really over doing it. Indulging in all sorts of cakes, pastries, chocolates, Italian food, more Italian food. My stomach is seriously protesting!

Time to put the indulgence aside for the next holiday season! That’s if you can ignore the chocolate chip hot cross buns retailers have decided to bestow on us and get back to clean and healthy eating. Above is quick lunch or snack idea. Using Orgran corn crisp bread and my favourite Liddells Lactose free cheese.

Orgran have a great range is crisp breads to suit your taste and dietary requirements and they are low in calories too! You can find their range at your local Woolworths Supermarket.
