Last weekend we headed off bright and early to the Sydney Markets to purchase lots of fresh fruit and vegetables...the car was filled with lots of goodies and we set off home to begin the "cook-a-thon".
Lucky we had lots of wonderful new cookbooks to inspire some tasty dishes! Gwyneth Paltrow's great book "Its All Good" was a Birthday present, "The Happy Cookbook" by Lola Berry has become a family favourite and last week I picked up "The Chef Gets Healthy" by Tobie & Geogia Puttock and we have already fallen in love with their healthy twist on a few old favourites - definitely a good find!
A yummy breakfast (or Sunday night dinner in our case).... snow pea, pea and feta salad (yummy)....raw beetroot and pine nut salad (there were no leftovers) and lots of marinated yellow peppers (and we still didn't make a dent in the box we bought)!
Healthy sweet potato muffins (divine, they are amazing hot and almost didn't make it into the lunch boxes)....ricotta pancakes which we served for dessert with a honeycomb butter....and plant of protein balls for when we need a pick me up or healthy snack!
The fridge is full, the freezer overflowing and still there are half boxes of vegetables sharing my office space, I can see I am going to have to have another cook-a-thin on my day off tomorrow...hmm back to the recipe books I go to find more delicious healthy creations!
