A gorgeous shot of my #glutenfree orecchiette with #cimedirapa (broccoli rabe) being served (and enjoyed!) in #Puglia during our most recent #wellness retreat
Photo cred: @marcelabantea
This is one of the rare times I am not posting one of my own photos. During the week-long retreat in southern Italy, I was so busy cooking, teaching and creating- that I had no time for #foodphotography
Luckily, my wonderdul friend and photographer, Marcela, was present to document moments like these.
Being that we were hosting our retreat in Puglia, I decided to incorporate a typical and regional Pugliese dish into the menu.
Instead of serving the pasta with anchovies or bottarga (as it is traditionally presented) I toasted some #almonds and sprinkled them on top.

ESSENTIAL EGGPLANT LASAGNA 🍆🍆🍆
I’m not going to lie. I don’t love eggplant (unless it’s cooked to perfection or pureed into baba ghanoush). I’ll eat it, but I don’t actively seek it out when cooking or dining out.
But I’m all about eating the rainbow, and the deep purple colour is hard to find in other foods.
I was actually preparing myself for disappointment; I wasn’t even excited about cooking or eating it, to be frank. But when it came out of the oven I nearly squealed in delight… and after my first bite, I did!
I have never doubted a recipe as much as this one, yet proven so very wrong (I expected basic, boring, bland). But… THIS DISH IS SENSATIONAL. Seriously!
It’s SO GOOD. It’s SO SIMPLE. It’s INFALLIBLE.
So please, please, please, make this recipe.
Hi, it’s been along time between posts but I am back after much needed time out.
I apologise for disappearing without a word.
It is said that to become a healer you have to heal yourself first and that is a journey I am still on. To cut a long story short I had an asthma attack and ended up in hospital and felt a bit hypocritical of talking about eating healthy when I was far from it. I don’t usually share personal information but felt that I needed to offer some explanation for my absence . Anyway I really wanted to thank the people that reached out to me, you know who you are, I really appreciate it. X
Food comes in a whole package. However - if we had to break it down - It is without doubt that the bulk of my diet is carbohydrate. And would represent 60/20/20 (C/F/P). Sources of carbohydrate I eat most would be oats, potatoes, rice, quinoa, pasta, bread and fruit. Sources of fat I would mostly come from avocado, nuts such as walnuts, Brazil nuts, almonds, cashew nuts, and a mixture of seeds such as flax seeds, sunflower seeds, hemp seeds, chia seeds and pepitas. Protein comes in the form of all plants and I encourage to eat whole as much as possible. Examples of high protein foods in the plant kingdom that I regularly consume can come from beans, lentils, legumes, tempeh, tofu, and of coarse whole fresh veggies. Together - let's destroy the myths and make the Vegainz! If you need help destroying the myths - get in touch and I would love to answer any questions 💪🏼🐨🌿
‘To avoid criticism do nothing, say nothing, be nothing’ - love this quote which came with my coffee last week @magicferrars 🙌🏻💕 Hard work is key, and unfortunately there are frequently people who love to criticise. Since you can’t escape it, embrace it. And keep on working! Happy Tuesday peeps!👌🔑 💪🏻

Don't mind me over here just setting new porridge standards for myself! Made a little apple, pear and cinnamon "compote" (I think) and mixed it through and used it as a topping! So warming and comforting. Have you all checked out my new post on being kind of yourself when you're facing a hormonal battle? This kind of breakfast is one way that I'd show myself a lil self love ❤️link in bio babes!
-I ♡ You So Matcha-
So I've gone a little matcha cray 😆 at the moment! It all started with the matcha latte, 🍵then the matcha clay mask & now the @fit_mixes matcha cheesecake protein ball mix 🍡 that has been staring at me on the health food store shelf for months! I'm sooo glad that I finally gave in because they're the most DELICIOUS protein balls that I've ever eaten. They actually do taste like matcha AND cheesecake even though they're dairy free. Howww did you do this??? ☺️They're definitely going to be one of my new go to snacks from now on.
I usually make my own balls, however I can easily go overboard with my fat consumption. This way I know exactly how many fats I'm getting per ball. Plus, it will stop me from buying snacks while I'm out.
Confession: I actually put aside two balls as part of today's snack but was too excited when I woke up this morning & all I could think was MATCHA CHEESECAKE 😳 so naturally, I went straight for fridge 🏃🏼♀️& inhaled them both! ... well done, Vanessa! 👏🏽 Lucky I had a backup plan. 😂
NEW 🎉 OATMEAL CHOC CHIP ICE-CREAM SANDWICHES 😍🤤 Thick, chewy + full of choc chips oatmeal cookies (these are the best you’ll ever try! 🍪) Sandwiched together with a huge scoop of @hellococofrio Vanilla Sticky Date Pecan 🍦 Did you know that this ice cream is gluten-free, vegan and refined sugar free + doesn’t taste like dirt!? Get in ma belly! 😋 (LINK in bio ✌🏼)
We love Mexican. My little 4yo daughter begs for tacos every night. So we at least have it once per fortnight. For many years I've been making the taco mince with my own seasoning and not that packet of preservatives and additives that comes from the shops....it's a winner ...will share that recipe soon.
Tonight I'm sharing this recipe....it's based on Pico de Gallo (with a Katie twist). I don't usually follow a recipe... I go by gut feel and taste but tonight I did try and pay attention (during witching hour which means I tried extra hard) so I could give you the recipe! It's sooooo yummy my dad savoured our fresh Mexican dinner one night and my husband loves it too. These men consider themselves fine food critics....so that's good enough for me 💕 🍀Pico de Gallo
3 Roma tomatoes diced
1/4 red onion diced fine
2 avocados diced
2 - 3 tbls Jalapeños (from a jar) - optional - I LOVE them
Liberal sprinkling Himalayan salt
coriander leaves to taste
10 drops Young Living Lime essential oil
8 drops Young Living Lemon essential oil
Amazing flavour! I love Young Living's culinary oils as they are super economical and even when lemons and limes are out of season I always have them on hand - they are packed with flavour and did you know that Young Living have 33 oils approved by Food Standards Australia for ingestion, including these two 💕Young Living also has a culinary oils starter kit should you wish to play around them and enjoy them for yourself. You can grab them in my profile 💕
I haven’t shared much about me so here goes... Born and raised in regional Victoria on a small acreage, I spent much of my childhood foraging. Foraging for natural materials to make weeping willow cubby-houses, daisy chains, homes for tadpoles and rose soup for dolls. In my early teen years, I spent any spare time I had, helping in Mum's health food shop. Those years created an innate yearning to embrace natural ingredients.
I have always been a keen cook, selecting wholefoods and cooking from scratch as often as possible. My aim to reduce the chemicals in my family's food has always been of great importance to me.
That desire to connect to ingredients from nature has extended beyond food, resulting in the arrival of JOY, simply. JOY, simply is about creating opportunities to find joy in the simple things. Shifting one's mindset to see daily rituals, such as bathing, as a time of joy. JOY, simply encourages you to create time to enjoy gifts from the earth in products for skin, hair and home. The less ingredients the better, as nature intended - JOY, simply. So that’s how it all started. I’m learning so much. At the moment I’m loving the benefits of essential oils. They are in my soaps, but I’m also learning how I can use them to support the specific health needs of my family. If you want to join me, send me a message. Let’s do this together! #safetyinnumbers#naturalliving#lowtoxliving#giftsfromnature#joyfulpeople#nourish#nurture#botanicals#wholefoods#joysimply 📷Pinterest #yleo#oilylove#oilylove
When dinner looks this good! I’ve always got a stash of overnight oats in the fridge for a quick no fuss meal. Tonight I added banana, coconut flakes, cacao nibs and peanut butter. All natural all whole foods 👌🏽🌱 Make sure you’re using the most cleanest options. My oats are whole grain so they’ve at least got the best parts of the grain, black chia seeds, coconut flakes are organic (found a cool brand at Woolies), cacao nibs are organic as well and of course the peanut butter is only peanuts. Oh and the almond milk to soak the oats with is organic almond milk. So there are no preservatives in this bowl at all 😳👍🏽 Being back in Melbourne now I’m adjusting to all the different brands and options here. So need to do all the research again to make sure I’m putting the best foods in my body. Yes I’m that one that stands in the supermarket actually reading the labels. People seriously we should not be eating things that have numbers in them! It’s just wrong ✖️🤦🏽♀️
