One of those dishes you can SET & FORGET – for at least 6 hours! As we run our own Box (Hilltop CrossFit), we work odd and long hours and are daily stretched for time – not that we’d give that up for the world because we love love love our community at Hilltop! But it does mean that we’re always after quick and easy meals to prep that are healthy and can freeze well. This recipe makes up four meals (two of them quite large). This recipe is not brain science, it’s one for the guys (not being sexest – but your cooking skills are generally pretty limited) or perfect for those recently moved out of home and are eating Lean Cuisine every night.

The first vegetable that Coles has introduced to it’s customers in over ten years – that is saying something! You know from my posts that I’m not a big supermarket shopper, I prefer to but from farmers/wholesalers – more of a direct source. Well, I can say that you can’t get much more direct – as we are lucky enough to coach three members of the Samwell family at Hilltop – the family that produce these vegetables, we not only know where they come from, we know who grows them and they are awesome people who care about the land and what goes into our bodies!
Kalette – a cross between Kale and Brussels Sprouts. No, don’t stop reading now – they are amazing, incredibly flavoursome, are super green, and beautiful and delicate! So this is what I did with them for breakfast. Continue reading
This is my version of Laksa, it’s probably not very authentic, especially since it’s by an Aussie chick with Irish and English heritage but I love it and wanted to share it with you.
The key to this breakfast is the quality of the sausage! If you’ve recovered from your fit of giggles I”ll continue….
All jokes aside, we get our sausages from a small business called Wakefield Grange who sell ethically raised free range, grass fed beef, and they are delicious! Don’t use supermarket thin bbq sausages if you can help it! It is worth finding a good butcher This is a perfect breakfast for winter and this freezes really too and can be reheated. Food prep heaven!
The Macadamia nut is well known for being a high energy source and a fantastic source of protein. Pairing this with the sweetness of mango and coconut flour you get a nutritious tropical snack that you can take to work, … Continue reading

We may have watched The LEGO Movie on the weekend – and now in our heads all we can hear is “Everything is Awesome”, which particularly relates to this Black Forest and Coconut Ice Cream Sandwich! If you’ve seen this movie, think of the recipe coming from Cloud Cuckoo Land, a land up in the clouds where there are no rules, no limits, no bushy mustaches, no bedtimes, and no consistency. Reached by traveling up a rainbow, and home to the sweet and plucky Princess Unikitty, Cloud Cuckoo Land is built from every kind of piece using every type of LEGO imagination. I’d like to think that I was channelling Princess Unikitty when I put this recipe together! Anyway – enjoy! Continue reading
Hello delicious and nutritious breakfast! You can eat this hot or cold, but heading into the winter months I’m going to suggest that you eat it while it’s hot. Continue reading
Most Australian guys have a problem with eating quiche, and are much more comfortably calling it an Egg and Bacon Pie – so I’ve called this Beast Quiche, because they’re not a pie as there is a clear lack of any kind of pastry in these recipes. The first quiche I made was sweet potato and bacon and now I’ve branched out to a couple of different flavours, I’ve also learnt some lessons along the way! So the hard work has been done in the taste testing (yes this involved putting the vegetables in raw and no before you ask this did not work!) – so fingers crossed you’ll enjoy these!
