Satay Sauce- Super easy and quick!

Satay Sauce is such a versatile and healthy sauce, that can be served along any protein or used as a dip. For so long, in the ‘health world’, fats where demonised and yes, there are still folks out there professing the fat is bad myth- yes there are of course some bad fats, but not all fats are bad, in fact a lack of good ones in our diets can be really negative for overall health. I’m not going to get into a list of all the good and bad fats here, and how the low fat era only saw an increase of sugar, artificial sweeteners and salt in our products ( fat = flavour, so if removed from a food/product, flavour has to be replaced and this is what it’s replaced with!)  as this is all about the wonderful and tasty Asian sauce of satay. This recipe is so simple and can be whipped up in minutes. I served it with turmeric chicken skewers, stir fry veggies and a little rice, but it can be easily served along side, beef, pork, prawns, tofu or even …

I love cauliflower and I really love salad. But now the weather has gotten cold here in Melbourne, cooling salads are not high on the meals list. So why not make a roasted cauliflower WARM salad?

Jamie’s Chicken & Herby Sauce

Ok, I know it’s not such a great picture but trust me when I say, if you like chicken and you like herbs, this recipe is the bomb. This recipe is taken from a Jamie Oliver recipe, with a few tweaks and additions, from me! The best part about this recipe, is it is so simple, fresh and only takes approx. 15-20 minutes from start to finish, which is great for those nights when we are getting home from work late and need to get something on the table ASAP. So, apologies for the bad photography, but I was super hungry and needed to eat….when this grounded chic is hungry, well, there is no time for setting up photo shoots!! This recipe is Low Carb, for those who are looking to lower the carbs load and if you remove the feta, it will be paleo friendly. I do hope you enjoy it as much as my family does.
