Fridge and Pantry Essentials for a Healthy 2017 + WIN a Prezzy Card

I love the start of a new year.  Even though you can start with plans and goals at any time, the start of a new year just seems like a great time to get organised and kick start the year right.  Having a well stocked fridge and pantry with a few essential items can really help with getting into a good routine with healthy eating and meal preparation.  After all, there’s nothing worse than staring into the fridge or pantry and having no idea what to create – I know I’ve been there!

So to help you out this year,  I’ve put together some ideas on key items to have in your fridge and pantry and some ideas of what to create for yummy, nutritious breakfasts, lunches and snacks.  And I’m also giving away a $150 Prezzy Card to help you stock up too. Keep reading for details.   So ‘detox’ your pantry of all those old things you never use, and restock so you’re all organised and ready to go for healthy breakfasts, lunches and snacks. Later on I’ll write a post on essentials for dinners.

Pantry essentials:


Brown rice, or for a quick option instant brown rice cups
Tinned chickpeas
Seeds (including chia seeds)
Tinned salmon
Olive oil
Quality breads/wraps
Herbs and spices – my essentials are smoked paprika, oregano, cumin, ground coriander, paprika, chili flakes, garlic powder


Nice to have:

Other dried fruit for bliss balls, muesli bars and homemade granola
Freeze dried fruit – a little expensive but it does go a long way!
Raspberry balsamic vinegar – tastes amazing as a dressing!
Some bliss ball type snacks for those times when you don’t have anything prepared.

Fridge/Freezer essentials:


Feta cheese and hard cheese
Unsweetened natural yoghurt or Greek yoghurt
Frozen berries (or fresh when in season)
Baby spinach or other greens for salads
Cherry tomatoes
Other fruits/vegetables  – chop some up and store in containers in the fridge for snacks


Cheese, yoghurt and milk are an excellent source of calcium, Vitamin A and B12.  Yoghurt and milk are also good sources of protein to help keep you satisfied.

Fruit and vegetables provide lots of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants and can form the base of many meals.  Frozen berries are super handy for smoothies and to add to cereal and oats when berries are not in season.  Eggs are easy and fast to prepare and provide a range of nutrients as well as being a source of protein.


Nice to haves:

Smoked salmon (you can just use tinned salmon as a cheaper option)

Pesto and hummus can be used as spreads and dips and smoked salmon is a good source of protein and omega 3 fats.


So here’s what you can put together:


Overnight oats


A yummy combination of oats, milk, yoghurt, fruit and seeds, this makes a nice alternative to porridge in the summer.  Here’s the basic recipe:

Soak ½ cup of oats with ½ cup milk overnight. In the morning, stir through unsweetened yoghurt, fruit and top with nuts and seeds plus extra fruit and coconut.  You can make more than one day’s worth too, just double or triple etc the recipe.


Chia puddings


The chia seeds in this recipe provide over 11g of fibre –  that’s about 1/3 of your daily needs! Fibre is great for your digestive system and gut bacteria and also helps keep you feeling full.   Chia seeds are also a good source of a number of other vitamins and minerals and contain some plant based omega 3 fats, so they make a nourishing breakfast.   Here’s how to make a basic chia pudding:

Soak 2 tablespoons chia seeds overnight with 1/2 cup of milk.  Add fruit plus nuts and seeds. If you like things a wee bit sweeter drizzle with a teaspoon of maple syrup or honey.   Top with a dollop of yoghurt.  Here’s another recipe for a raspberry and coconut chia pudding too.


Egg breakfasts


There are so many different ways you can have eggs for breakfast.  Poached or scrambled on toast with tomato and avocado,  omelets with vegetables and feta cheese, sweet omelettes with yoghurt and fruit….   Check out the recipes I have here for some inspiration.


Homemade muesli


A combination of oats, nuts, seeds, coconut and either dried or freeze dried fruit makes a delicious nourishing breakfast.  I’ve got a couple of yummy recipes here cashew, coconut and strawberry and also a recipe for plum, cashew and coconut muesli/granola. Top with a dollop of natural  yoghurt.



Smoothies are a great quick breakfast that you can have on the go.  There’s so many ways you can create a smoothie but my basic formula is a mixture of milk, yoghurt, fruit, vegetables and nuts or seeds.  I’ve created a guide for making balanced smoothies here.


Lunch ideas


Having some quick, healthy lunch options makes life so much easier. With just a few items listed above you can create a range of different lunch options in less than five minutes.  Here’s some options for one serve –


  • Heat one brown rice cup and mix through salmon, feta cheese, avocado, cherry tomato, red onion, red capsicum and baby spinach.  Stir through a teaspoon of raspberry balsamic vinegar and olive oil.
  • Rinse and drain a tin of chickpeas.  Heat a teaspoon or two of olive oil in a pan.  Add the half the chickpeas and sprinkle over 1/2 teaspoon of smoked paprika and a sprinkle of dried oregano. Place in a bowl and mix through a heaped teaspoon of pesto. Add cherry tomato halves, chopped capsicum, and a sprinkle of feta cheese and a tablespoon of cashew nuts.
  • Cook a serve of quinoa as per instructions on packet.  Mix through some smoked salmon, chopped cucumber, tomato and red onion.  Add a dollop of natural yoghurt mixed with fresh herbs.
  • Heat one brown rice cup and place in bowl. Add baby spinach, chopped cherry tomato, cucumber, avocado and chickpeas (if you want, pan fry in olive oil with some smoked paprika first), feta cheese.
  • A range of sandwiches and wraps – you can make them vegetarian with cheese and salad, or do smoked salmon and salad or even mashed feta and chickpea with salad.


Snack ideas

I find I need a snack between meals some days to help tide me over and these are some of my favourite nourishing options that are also delicious 🙂


With the essentials listed you can have:

*Yoghurt with berries or other fruit
*A handful of nuts
*Homemade bliss balls (check out a recipe here) or store bought bars/balls for those times you don’t have anything prepared.
*Roasted chickpeas (recipe here)
*Vegetable sticks, cheese and hummus
* Individual yoghurt containers.  I like De Winkle plain unsweetened. These are great to grab for work when you’re running late!


I hope this helps you to kick start 2017 with lots of healthy meal ideas.  To help you out, I’m also giving away a $150 Prezzy card! To be in the draw to win, simply comment below with what your favourite idea is from above.  Competition is open to NZ residents only sorry and will be drawn on Saturday 14th January.  Winner will be notified by email and published on this post after the 14th January.

WINNER:  Congratulations Maia!  Check your emails 🙂

This post was made possible thanks to Fonterra.

  3. Crissy January 7, 2017 at 9:59 am #

    I really like the overnight oats. It’s something I can make even in my morning rush. I will definitely be trying this out because this is a much healthier option than my store bought cereals.

  4. Laura January 7, 2017 at 10:04 am #

  6. Amy January 7, 2017 at 10:09 am #

    I have never tried a sweet omelette before and excited to try the recipe for Chocolate banana & hazelnut omelette. Sounds easy enough to make & delicious way to mix up usual weekend brunch. Also I have never heard of raspberry balsamic vinegar – do you have a brand you could recommend and store to purchase? Thanks

  7. Bianca January 7, 2017 at 10:12 am #

    I love the overnight oats! So conveniant!

  10. Rebekah January 7, 2017 at 10:28 am #

    So many amazing ideas! I love getting inspiration from your page! Lots of things to try but I am going to be more organised with snacks on hand such a homemade bliss balls or vege sticks with hummus ????

  11. Tabitha Newton January 7, 2017 at 10:33 am #

    I really really crave an avocado omelette now after your suggestions. Delicious!!!

  12. Ange Storck January 7, 2017 at 10:33 am #

    OMG where do I start. You have given me such inspiration ideas for my weight release journey. But if I had to choose it would be smoothies and egg ideas. Thank you for the opportunity. ????

  13. Rachel January 7, 2017 at 10:36 am #

  14. Shannon Simpson January 7, 2017 at 10:42 am #

  16. Diane Davidson January 7, 2017 at 10:50 am #

    Chia puddings: I realize that Chia seeds have been available for a very long time. But I’m only just getting started with them. I also have to confess to having a rather sweet tooth and also to being the sort of Nana that indulges my family in frequent treats. So the way forward is for me to develop a repertoire of nutritious, delicious and healthful desserts. On my To-do list for 2017, is to ditch the diets – quit the unhealthy sugar- trapped puddings and just concentrate on providing simple, satisfying, healthy meals. It’s never too late to learn new culinary tricks – or to cull bad old habits!

  17. Jo Newcombe Cook January 7, 2017 at 11:03 am #

    Loving the sound of the chickpea snacks. Always looking for protein options for the kids.

  18. Frances Martin January 7, 2017 at 11:08 am #

    So similar to my grocery essentials too! Love the homemade muesli and chia puddings! And definitely a good idea to only have healthy snacks in the house to avoid those naughty temptations!

  19. Sarah January 7, 2017 at 11:09 am #

    I like your egg ideas. We always have them in the fridge but my brain just automatically thinks of the same old things for breakfast, these ideas are going to help me change things up a bit! Oh and your smoothie ideas are ???????? too!

  20. Sarah January 7, 2017 at 11:10 am #

    haha that’s supposed to be the perfect emoji!

  21. Robyn January 7, 2017 at 11:29 am #

    We love your idea of wraps with all sorts of fillings, based around protein, a flavoursome spread, and lots of salad veges and greens. Sooooo good!

  22. Alice January 7, 2017 at 12:05 pm #

    I love this whole article! I’ve taken screenshots so I can use them later. So many great ideas that I am definitely going to use. I love the quick easy lunch ideas, I have chickpeas in my pantry but have never really known how to have them! So that’s perfect, also the ideas of other ways to have eggs. Awesome article ?

  23. Nikky Winchester January 7, 2017 at 1:15 pm #

    I want to try using chia seeds – your recipe sounds very simple and easy to individualise to our personal tastes.

  24. V January 7, 2017 at 1:22 pm #

    I like the idea of overnight oats as a summer alternative!

  25. Kathryn January 7, 2017 at 1:38 pm #

  27. Rachel January 7, 2017 at 1:48 pm #

    I’ve mastered overnight oats and chia puddings, so would definitely love to build-up my smoothie-making skills! Easy breakfast for mornings when I’m rushing out the door…

  28. Debbie January 7, 2017 at 2:26 pm #

    So many great ideas here, must admit the picture of the kumara hash egg muffins stood out to me, love eggs for breakfast and needed something else to break up the routine!

  29. Kelsey January 7, 2017 at 2:27 pm #

    Chia puddings for sure! I’ve never done one, but they look so simple and delicious!

  30. Anya January 7, 2017 at 2:31 pm #

    I’m starting the year with a bit of a January gut clean out – so it was great to read your suggestions. I particularly liked the sound of the chickpeas with pesto, cherry tomatos, capsicum, and cashew nuts (will try with feta when I’m back on dairy!). That’ll be my lunch today!

  31. Amanda F January 7, 2017 at 3:17 pm #

    The brown rice cups are a great idea with some salmon or tuna and whatever Vegas you have for a quick and easy lunch.

  32. Rach January 7, 2017 at 3:58 pm #

    Loving the lunch ideas! Some good essentials to stock the work fridge with too for easy lunches!

  33. Madhurya Sundar January 7, 2017 at 4:29 pm #

    I’d have to say your egg breakfasts are pretty stellar. Especially since I’m on a keto diet, the idea of incorporating pesto with my eggs is something I think will really change my typical breakfast combo. Also, using feta in salads is something I’ve heard so much about but I’ll be using your tips to try it out. I’ll let you know how it goes 🙂

  34. Rebecca January 7, 2017 at 4:35 pm #

    The chickpea pesto lunch sounds delicious.

  35. Rachel January 7, 2017 at 5:05 pm #

    Overnight oats. So quick and easy

  36. Marieka Curley January 7, 2017 at 6:44 pm #

    Breakfast looks far easier with your overnight oats recipe! Weekday mornings can often be so rushed that I forget to eat and wind up feeling exhausted by 10am. Will be great to get organised the night before or even make doubles! Thank you!

  37. Cherie January 7, 2017 at 7:07 pm #

    This is amazing ???? love all the ideas! Chia pudding is such a great idea! Thank you! X

  54. Stacey January 7, 2017 at 8:03 pm #

    I love the overnight oats tip – I eat porridge a lot but a good summer alternative is good to try. I am just starting to declutter our pantry and get some better foods into it, so it is always helpful to read what people suggest ????

  55. Stacey January 7, 2017 at 8:07 pm #

    Overnight oats – love that I prepare the night before so that my morning is less chaotic.

  70. Jo January 7, 2017 at 9:02 pm #

    Great ideas and was surprised that the chia puddings have about a third of your daily fibre so that is something I would definately be making.

  96. Erin January 7, 2017 at 11:09 pm #

    This post is just what I have been looking for. Wanted to try overnight oats and chia puddings for ages. Also definitely think your first lunch suggestion could become a favourite in my house that surely will be greeted with some envy at work lunches.

  97. Melissa January 7, 2017 at 11:18 pm #

    The brown rice cups-with a commute of over four hours a day, leaving the house before 7am and not getting back til after 6 at night at earliest- anything that saves a lot of time, is easily transportable or can be very quickly prepared for dinner is extremely helpful!

    Do you have any other quick ideas like this? Thanks

  98. Beckie January 8, 2017 at 12:39 am #

    I love a good break and the muesli tantalises my tastebuds!

  99. Emily January 8, 2017 at 1:16 am #

    All of it looks fab! The egg recipes look really useful as I’m really trying to make an effort to have more protein in the morning

  100. Caro January 8, 2017 at 5:51 am #

    The chickpea + pesto idea sounds like something I’d love to try!

  101. Amy January 8, 2017 at 6:11 am #

    The raspberry balsamic vinegar sounds amazing – will definitely try it in one of your salad suggestions!

  102. Suzannah Newton January 8, 2017 at 6:38 am #

    I loved all the lunch ideas. I get into such a rut and one of my resolutions with my partner was not to buy lunches out anymore so all of these were super helpful. I especially love the idea of the chickpeas with smoked paprika, capsicum, feta and cashews. Yum! We always have tins of chicken peas in the pantry but I never really know what to do with them aside from a curry.

  103. Charmaine willis-Croft January 8, 2017 at 6:38 am #

    Some great ideas. Love the Chia pudding and the quick lunch ideas.

  104. Jan Sumner January 8, 2017 at 7:22 am #

    My new favourite brekkie, overnight oats. Great for energy on a run.

  105. Nikki January 8, 2017 at 7:51 am #

    Those chia puddings look delish!!! Loving the lunch ideas too

  106. Nicole January 8, 2017 at 8:16 am #

    I love the overnight oats idea – so convenient for a busy lifestyle and healthy too!!

  107. Shar January 8, 2017 at 8:21 am #

    I love the smoothie section especially help getting a balanced one. Too easy to create a smoothie that tastes awesome and is FULL of sugar and not much else… or super green but not easy to swallow. Love the whole post really but had to pick one. ????

  108. Christy Meads January 8, 2017 at 8:36 am #

    I need to try the overnight oats. They look scrumptious!!!

  109. Bronwyn January 8, 2017 at 8:40 am #

    I love the idea of the overnight oats, I already soak some for a morning shake, but to make them into a delicious breakfast like that sound Devine.

  110. Courtney January 8, 2017 at 8:44 am #

    I love the smoothies! Mine always look murky because I pack in so much spinach kale and cucumber so I’ll check your smoothie guide out too xx

  111. Angie Gies January 8, 2017 at 9:36 am #

    The snack idea of the Bliss Balls because sadly there are days when I get really peckish between meals and these sound like a good nutritious option for me

  112. Laura January 8, 2017 at 9:48 am #

    I lije the pantry essentials ideas as I never know exactly what I should have in there. This has given me a great list to go off. Now to get sorting!

  113. Juliet January 8, 2017 at 9:54 am #

    I love the chia seed breakfast idea, I didn’t realize how much fiber they have so look forward to giving this a go.

  114. Shireen January 8, 2017 at 10:02 am #

    Yum yum yum – eggs for breakfast!! I’ll be making those bliss balls too for when I need a snack.

  115. Amy Hall January 8, 2017 at 10:04 am #

    I love overnight oats! Such a tasty option and super quick to prepare – no excuses for skipping breakfast!

  116. Tallis Lentz January 8, 2017 at 10:33 am #

    I love the overnight oats/porridge recipe! So easy!

  117. Irene Eades January 8, 2017 at 10:56 am #

    I just brought a Nutra Bullet for Christmas. So I loved your smoothie ideas above.
    I’m loving the Nutra Bellet. My fridge is 75% fruit and veges. The whole family is feeling so much healthier!

  118. Lisa January 8, 2017 at 10:59 am #

    The lunch ideas are my favourite and look so quick easy and yum . I’m going to try cooking brown rice and adding salmon, feta,cherry tomatoes, cucumber and spinach avocado and chickpeas ????

  119. Lisa January 8, 2017 at 11:01 am #

    Bliss Balls look yum too

  120. Jasmine January 8, 2017 at 11:02 am #

    Overnight oats. Have never tried them! Sound super easy for someone like me who’s always on the go with kidsz

  121. Nicole January 8, 2017 at 12:21 pm #

    Love the kumera hash egg muffins so have to try these!

  122. Samantha Meiklejohn January 8, 2017 at 12:27 pm #

    I’m in love with the power packed goodness contained in the wee little chia seeds! And dead keen to try out making the puddings!

  123. JILL AUTRIDGE January 8, 2017 at 12:37 pm #

    Happy New Year EatWellNZ! I am soooooo trying to eat better! But money’s tight and I’ve really got to budget. I’m pleasantly surprised how having eggs for breakfast can really fill you up and keep you going until lunch, so I like your post on “eggs for breakfast”. And surprisingly I’m actually enjoying salads, which I never used to (go figure!). Chia balls good to kill those sugar cravings. Great tips!

  124. Aileen Fleming January 8, 2017 at 3:02 pm #

    Roasted chickpeas sounds good

  125. Caitlin January 8, 2017 at 4:48 pm #

    I really love the lunch and snack ideas! I’m a shift worker and I try to eat well an get all the right vitamins and nutrients with the odd hours I work. Thanks so much for this post!

  126. Jade January 8, 2017 at 6:10 pm #

    The chia seed pudding I already love! And the bliss ball look delicious! 😛

  127. Carla Benton January 8, 2017 at 9:36 pm #

    I love how you use only a few staple ingredients to produce a multitude of scrummy ideas. Sometimes it is quite overwhelming deciding what to eat! I especially like the idea of pan frying the chickpeas with paprika. Will be trying that next 😀

  128. Tania January 9, 2017 at 9:19 am #

    Roasted chickpeas sound like an easy and yummy snack!

  129. Sarah Liu January 9, 2017 at 9:36 am #

    Fridge and freezer essentials

  130. Nathalie January 9, 2017 at 10:30 am #

    Overnight oats are such a clever idea!

  131. Tania Brown January 9, 2017 at 11:04 am #

    I’s going to try the Roasted chickpeas as a snack, these sound nice and easy to make. Also love the lunch ideas.

  132. Alanna Watchman January 9, 2017 at 11:41 am #

    Love being reminded of something so basic and tasty as sticks of carrots or celery with dip.

  133. Kate foley January 9, 2017 at 11:43 am #

    chia pudding! 🙂

  134. Toni January 9, 2017 at 11:45 am #

    Chia puddings look good! gunna give them a go!!

  135. Arna-Rose Hannan January 9, 2017 at 11:50 am #

    Love the lunch ideas. Miss 8 loves salads and often asks for them for lunch and/or dinner. I never thought to make it for her for school lunches until now. Love the idea of rice added to the salad, sure beats a boring sandwich!

  136. Emily kerr January 9, 2017 at 11:55 am #

    Yum love the links to recipes and some great ideas for meals. Thanks

  137. Ida January 9, 2017 at 11:58 am #

  138. Tabitha newton January 9, 2017 at 11:58 am #

    I Cannot wait to try the kumara egg hash, sounds deluxe!!!

  139. Becky Ball January 9, 2017 at 12:01 pm #

    I love your idea for a sweet omelette for brekkie, had never thought of that!! It’s also just great advice to show people what their healthy shopping can look like and how versatile the ingredients are without being expensive 🙂

  140. Fiona Smith January 9, 2017 at 12:04 pm #

    Can’t beat eggs for breakfast!

  141. Theresa January 9, 2017 at 12:04 pm #

    Chai pudding yum yum!!! ????

  142. Mel January 9, 2017 at 12:14 pm #

    Homemade roasted chickpeas as a snack yummy and definitely trying asap.thankyou!

  143. Ellie Gulbransen January 9, 2017 at 12:15 pm #

    My favourite is the homemade muesli, pre made muesli is so expensive in stores and not to mention full of sugar and artificial ingredients so making my own is a great idea that I’m definitely getting into this year!

  144. Norma Mihaere January 9, 2017 at 12:16 pm #

    I have most of the ingredients that you listed in my pantry and fridge/freezer but I don’t really know what to make with them. I really like the lunch ideas that you listed as they are simple and fast to make. I can’t wait to see your dinner ideas.
    Thank you

  145. Kelly Evans January 9, 2017 at 12:19 pm #

    Great ideas Nicola! Love the brown rice, salmon, feta cheese, avocado, cherry tomato salad idea. Nice to have different lunch ideas as I’m always stuck on what to take other than a plain boring salad.

  146. Lisa January 9, 2017 at 12:20 pm #

    Love the home-made muesli!! I am a shift worker and this list is amazing!! Heading to the supermarket now to stock up 🙂 lunch ideas are great, will definitely be pinning this and utilising all your ideas! X

  147. Cate January 9, 2017 at 12:22 pm #

    Love love love these ideas! I always struggle coming up with breakfast and lunch ideas. Looking forward to trying the overnight oats first. But also really like the idea of smashed chick peas with feta for sammies ????

  148. Eleanor Burgess January 9, 2017 at 12:23 pm #

    All of the lunch ideas sound deliicious! I always find it hard to make a quick but healthy lunch so will definitely be giving all of them a try

  149. Ruby Jayne January 9, 2017 at 12:25 pm #

    Over night oats are the best, so excited to try this recipe! thank you for the tips and tricks, so handy when tying to organise a healthy, student flat’s fridge!!

  150. Tracee January 9, 2017 at 12:25 pm #

    those bliss balls you pictured look so yummy, a great snack idea that the kids and ( nut hating) husband wouldnt have a clue were healthy for them.

  151. Carlene January 9, 2017 at 12:25 pm #

    Roasted chickpeas sounds the best, i have some in the cupboard and i wasn’t sure what to do with them

  152. Alannah January 9, 2017 at 12:26 pm #

    The chia puddings look amazing!

  153. Kasey Ward January 9, 2017 at 12:30 pm #

    I love the shopping list!! I’m going to add these to our next fortnightly shop as my husband and I always struggle with what to have for lunch 🙂 the overnight oats sound like a quick and easy breakfast option too for work days.

  154. Kelly January 9, 2017 at 12:31 pm #

    I love all the egg breakfast ideas. I really struggle with eating breakfast but can tolerate eggs. All these new ideas should get me on track with making an effort to eat breakfast.

  155. Helen Hogg January 9, 2017 at 12:37 pm #

    All of the above recipes are inspirational, but homemade muesli is what I will start with.

  156. Mary January 9, 2017 at 12:38 pm #

    The chia puddings look so nice, I’ve also heard of Chocolate Chia Pudding where you use cacao powder. So yum!

  157. Aimela January 9, 2017 at 12:40 pm #

    HNY Nicola Fonterra and eatwellnz I love all of your information and recipes but being disabled it’s often hard to actually achieve normality with simple day to day life. I’m looking forward to trying my best this year to achieve a healthy new balanced me thank you for your wonderful foody odeas and recipes I guess it’s a lot to do with what your keep in your kitchen crossing fingers

  158. Laura January 9, 2017 at 12:41 pm #

    Excited to give it a whirl 🙂

  159. Jacqui Hansen January 9, 2017 at 12:42 pm #

    I love the Kumara Egg Hash! Will be trying that for sure!

  160. Hannah January 9, 2017 at 12:43 pm #

    Homemade granola sounds delicious for a breakfast cereal. Also a much healthier option than the cereals stocked in the supermarket. Thank you for the ideas to help keep to my new years resolution of eating healthy.

  161. Jamie January 9, 2017 at 12:48 pm #

    The Chocolate banana & hazelnut omelette – YUMMO weekend treat breakfast 🙂

  162. Claire January 9, 2017 at 12:51 pm #

    I will definitely be whipping up some overnight oats. I love to have porridge in the winter so this is the perfect summer alternative????

  163. Denise Anglesey January 9, 2017 at 12:55 pm #

    Thank you for this .. love having a big sort out and restock up. Loving the overnight oats.

  164. Prue Young January 9, 2017 at 12:57 pm #

    I like the look of the lunches perfect for taking to work and the roasted chickpeas

  168. Brittany January 9, 2017 at 1:11 pm #

    The kumara egg hah sounds amazing! I love the great ideas on here, it can be hard to eat right on a student budget but I’m trying to make a big effort this year to eat right!

  169. alicia mcdonald January 9, 2017 at 1:17 pm #

    I really want to try overnight oats and Chia puddings! I need to add more grain free products to my cupboards!

  172. Robyn Dent January 9, 2017 at 1:53 pm #

    The raspberry balsamic vinegar as a dressing! Sounds yum. Also love the sound of the chia puddings

  173. trinity January 9, 2017 at 2:00 pm #

    cHia pudding!

  174. Esme Blair January 9, 2017 at 2:01 pm #

    I’m loving the lunch idea of the brown rice cup with all the yummy things like cucumber, avocado, cherry tomatoes, spinach, chickpeas and feta!!
    Sounds bloody delicious and I will be trying this very soon!!

  175. Olivia January 9, 2017 at 2:13 pm #

    Love the idea of using raspberry balsamic vinegar as a dressing!

  176. Gabor January 9, 2017 at 2:16 pm #

    Definitely the overnight oats – something I’ve been wanting to try for awhile now. Close second is the vegetarian brown rice bowl!

  177. Aleisha H January 9, 2017 at 2:18 pm #

    The Snoked Paprika Chickpea salad for lunch is inspiring & sounds delicious! ????

  178. Aleisha H January 9, 2017 at 2:21 pm #

    OMG those chia puddings look delish & I cant wait to try them! =P

  180. Alana Dixon January 9, 2017 at 2:23 pm #

    I love this entire post, but if I had to pick one item it would have to be the chia puddings. So easy to do on meal prep Sunday and to pick up and go on those mornings when you’re running out the door at a minimum of 10 minutes late ????

  181. Serena baxter January 9, 2017 at 2:26 pm #

    Over night oats is a great idea, I am not a morning person and this will help to make me eat breakfast because it is already done

  182. Kylie January 9, 2017 at 2:54 pm #

    ????Love the chickpea lunch dish, always looking for new and yummy ideas to make the night before and pull out to eat at my desk after my lunch time work out. Thank you. Fingers crossed for the New Year competition I would loved to stock our kitchen cupboards with yummy healthy foods????

  183. Stacey January 9, 2017 at 2:58 pm #

    Loving the sound of the brown rice, salmon and feta cheese! Any excuse to fit salmon into my day and I make my own feta so its sounds great!

  184. Corinna January 9, 2017 at 2:58 pm #

    I love them all but especially your lunch idea, it looks and sounds so tasty and definitely something my daughter would eat.

  185. felicity smith January 9, 2017 at 3:04 pm #

    I love the overnight oats. The quick ideas are fab too xx

  186. Alex January 9, 2017 at 3:07 pm #

    Bliss balls! Yum!

  187. Sandra Fuller January 9, 2017 at 3:07 pm #

    The lunch ideas are great, but I’d probably use them for dinner!

  188. Corrine January 9, 2017 at 3:21 pm #

    Definitely the overnight Oats! Going to try it this week! Thanks!

  189. Kimberly Simpson January 9, 2017 at 3:31 pm #

  191. Rebecca January 9, 2017 at 3:33 pm #

    I love the lunch ideas! That’s the hardest meal time for me, and the brown rice salad sounds devine!!!!
    Thank you for this, it will come in handy for my first grocery shop as I’m moving out of home in a few weeks!!

  192. Sophie January 9, 2017 at 3:40 pm #

    Chocolate Banana and Hazelnut Omelette! I love a sweet breakfast and this is perfect 🙂

  193. MaryAnn Thomas January 9, 2017 at 4:09 pm #

    Loved the overnight oats idea. Quick, easy and healthy breaky 🙂

  194. Laura January 9, 2017 at 4:37 pm #

    I love the De Winkel yogurts! So useful. I love to add fruit and oats at work if I’m in a rush.

  195. Nicky Barton January 9, 2017 at 4:48 pm #

    The Roasted Chickpeas – I want to try these in lots of different flavours as a snack or as the base for a salad.

  196. Brittani January 9, 2017 at 4:55 pm #

    Will definitely be trying out the homemade muesli, with some natural yoghurt!

  197. Jane January 9, 2017 at 5:08 pm #

    Great post thank you. Being organised is the key and this really helps. Love the chia coconut and raspberry pudding idea yum

  198. Fiona Kendall January 9, 2017 at 5:19 pm #

    The sweet omelette is so ingenious!! The pic is so beautiful I hope I can do it justice! What an amazing post thank you 🙂 x

  199. Mon Harema January 9, 2017 at 5:21 pm #

    Definitely the Chia Puddings. I learnt that it is high in fibre. And, my hat would be very useful for me. Rather than eating loads of unhealthy, high in fats/salt content food to feel “full.”
    And I love desserts,over anything else. Chia puddings is a must try for me! Would love to actually give it a go!!

  200. Tina January 9, 2017 at 5:23 pm #

    Plenty of yummy ideas! I love the chickpea salad idea for lunch, I’ll be trying it this week!

  201. Isabella hammond January 9, 2017 at 5:29 pm #

    The salad with the salmon, feta and cherry tomatoes looks great!! This would help me out so much as a poor uni student trying to eat healthy and get fit! I’ve definitely saved this post for later x

  202. Ilse January 9, 2017 at 5:40 pm #

    Chia seed puddings! My fav! ???? And this year I’ll definitely be trying some overnight oats to mix it up!

  203. Georgie Bayly January 9, 2017 at 6:04 pm #

    My favourite idea is your Cashew, coconut & strawberry nutty granola – with strawberries in season, this would be perfect for the summer months. And very easy to travel with, as I usually have breakfast at work. Can’t wait to try this recipe out! 🙂

  204. Sam Voss January 9, 2017 at 6:09 pm #

    I really appreciate different, easy and healthy lunch ideas but my favourite recipes were for chia puddings and breakfast oats. They’re something I’ve been wanting to try for aaaages but have never found an easy recipe with flavour suggestions I would actually enjoy. Everything sounds delish!

  205. Isabelle January 9, 2017 at 6:14 pm #

    Chia puddings look like a tasty summer treat.

  206. Riana Te Ngahue January 9, 2017 at 6:20 pm #

    The overnight oats sound yum as ??

  207. Holly Campbell January 9, 2017 at 6:22 pm #

    Homemade Muesli sounds like such a great idea, not only for breakfasts but also for the 3pm slump to keep me energized! Going to try your cashew, coconut and strawberry recipe!

  208. Hayley Mitcheson January 9, 2017 at 6:42 pm #

    Love the brekkie ideas that are quick and easy to follow! Am looking forward to making some of the chia puddings and trying some overnight oats 🙂

  212. Stacey January 9, 2017 at 7:23 pm #

    Smoothies!!!! I’ve made some nasty combos…there’s definitely an art to a good smoothie combo!

  213. Liz McAllister January 9, 2017 at 7:24 pm #

    I love the idea of the overnight oats! Super easy and would help me eat breakfast in the mornings, as often I don’t have enough time.

  214. Kelly Blackie January 9, 2017 at 7:37 pm #

    I’m going to make the overnight oats tonight! My son loves porridge but by the time I make that in the morning I often don’t have time to make myself something ???? This could be a great way to get both our breekies sorted!

  215. Olivia January 9, 2017 at 7:49 pm #

    I love the overnight oats! you can never go wrong with porridge!

  216. Pip January 9, 2017 at 8:02 pm #

  220. Sarah January 9, 2017 at 8:42 pm #

    Egg breakfasts! I’m getting a little bored with scrambled eggs most mornings – these are great ideas to change things up a wee bit! Thanks 🙂

  221. Kelly January 9, 2017 at 8:49 pm #

    I love the lunch ideas. Once I find something I like I tend to stick to it for awhile so it will be nice to add some easy variety to my days! The brown rice recipe sounds yummy and super easy

  222. Trista Milne January 9, 2017 at 8:51 pm #

    Wow!! Love the recipes to go with the prize, very impressive!!

  223. Paige January 9, 2017 at 8:57 pm #

    These ideas seem so quick and easy. I love the idea of a quick smoothie for breakfast. They are so easy with minimal ingredients. Love it!!

  224. Jewels January 9, 2017 at 8:58 pm #

    Certainly not quinoa with yoghurt, ew. I’d like to try the chia puddings though

  225. Greer Dorne January 9, 2017 at 9:03 pm #

  230. Janine January 9, 2017 at 9:46 pm #

    Over night oats and Cashew, coconut and strawberry granola, Delicous and easy.

  232. Tatyana January 9, 2017 at 9:52 pm #

    I love chickpeas but never really know how to use them in a way that does them justice. Your lunch idea for these sounds delightful, can’t wait to give it a try

  233. Dani Balschun January 9, 2017 at 9:56 pm #

    Vegetable sticks with cheese and hummus

  234. Jess January 9, 2017 at 9:56 pm #

  238. Rachel Orr January 9, 2017 at 10:42 pm #

    I like the sound of the smoked salmon, chopped cucumber, tomato and red onion salad. Will definitely add this to the list to try!

  239. Liz Beeston January 9, 2017 at 10:48 pm #

    I’d love to try making the Plum, Cashew and Coconut Granola!!

  240. Lisa January 9, 2017 at 10:53 pm #

    Cashew,coconut and strawberry homemade muesli sounds fab. Will definitely try for my museli lovers!

    Chia puddings, have been wanting try these for ages but keeping forgetting to get the seeds

  251. Collie January 10, 2017 at 7:05 am #

    Got to love a humble homemade muesli 🙂

  252. Katie Beach January 10, 2017 at 7:09 am #

    The Chia puddings look delicious I I love that idea especially since i have a sweet tooth ????

  253. Laura Stevenson January 10, 2017 at 7:11 am #

    I love the idea of using raspberry balsamic as a dressing on many of the recipes! I really struggle with finding healthy dressings/sauces!! ?

  254. Hollie Hauraki January 10, 2017 at 7:14 am #

    That salad looks delicious!! Have saved thins post for future reference….thanks for reminding me that eating healthy is not that difficult or expensive!!

  255. Marree Sylva January 10, 2017 at 7:17 am #

    Bliss balls are defiantly on the to try list! They sound like the perfect balance between sweet and healthy and would be perfect for those chocolate or lolly cravings! As I have a very sweet tooth, these would help me stay on track with my goal of loosing 50+kgs

  256. Sophie January 10, 2017 at 7:39 am #

    Chia seed puddings look so versatile- can add whatever I have in the fridge or to suit the different tastes I our household! Id love to use this prize to customise and come up with some crazy new combinations!

  257. Barbara Brom January 10, 2017 at 7:39 am #

    Thank you so much for your amazing ideas and recipes. Definitely some yummy things that I am going to try. 🙂

  259. Amy mcdonald January 10, 2017 at 7:45 am #

    The sweet omelette!

  260. Jey January 10, 2017 at 7:47 am #

    The chickpea recipe.. love chickpeas I just never know what to serve them with

  261. Emma January 10, 2017 at 8:03 am #

    Vegetable sticks and hummus. And the frozen berries for smoothies.

  262. Katie brown January 10, 2017 at 8:08 am #

    Overnight oats with yoghurt, yum!! So many good ideas in there though ????

  263. Tash January 10, 2017 at 8:16 am #

    I love the smoothie ideas im always making the same old banana and berry ones. I’m currently pregnant with my first child and smoothies are keeping the morning sickness at bay!

  264. Laura January 10, 2017 at 8:16 am #

    Love the homemade muesli ideas! 🙂

  265. Sarah January 10, 2017 at 8:17 am #

    Chickpeas with paprika – I often use chickpeas but this is a great idea for adding a different taste!

  266. Kaitlyn January 10, 2017 at 8:23 am #

    I love the chickpea salad option! I always have chickpeas in the cupboard but never quite know what to do with them, or how to make others excited about having them in their meal ????

  267. Dani January 10, 2017 at 8:37 am #

    Raspberry and coconut chia pudding looks delicious! Have only ever made plain ones so will definitely be trying this one ??

  268. Yarna January 10, 2017 at 8:41 am #

    Wow I have never come across this website before! Lots of awesome ideas I will definitely try this week. Thanks for that!

  269. Mikayla January 10, 2017 at 8:42 am #

    Overnight oats are the best for sure!! So convenient for the morning having a nutritious breakfast already prepared, more time to sleep in ????

  270. Yarna January 10, 2017 at 8:55 am #

    Lots of awesome ideas, My fav is the rice cups for lunch. Never actually used them but making them tasty with some good ingredients sounfs like a go! Thanks

  271. Rebecca McNeile January 10, 2017 at 8:57 am #

    Definitely the chia seed puddings now I can make my own!!

  272. Gabrielle January 10, 2017 at 9:00 am #

    OMG i love them all – i can not choose just one.I think i am going to make them all now.. I need new clean healthy recipes to try.

  273. Kirsten Davidson January 10, 2017 at 9:00 am #

  274. Anna January 10, 2017 at 9:05 am #

    I’m in love with new overnight oat recipe’s! But the brown rice salad for lunch also looks like a great idea!

  275. Ashleigh January 10, 2017 at 9:07 am #

    My favourite idea: the raspberry balsamic vinegar as a dressing, sounds yum!

  276. Tania January 10, 2017 at 9:15 am #

    Chia seed puddings!! They are always my fave.
    But I have to say I like the sound of your lunch ideas too! I have a hard time making a good healthy lunch that will keep me full and is tasty at the same time and that isnt a sammy so I like the sound of your ideas and will definitely give them a go

  277. Alexandra Hilmes January 10, 2017 at 9:23 am #

    Homemade muesli is the best! I find when I make my own, like you have, the muesli has less sugar content and much more healthy! Another favorite from you is the chia seed puddings! I really need to try those. Look so yummy!

  278. Julie-anne Martin/Dunn January 10, 2017 at 9:36 am #

    Love the overnight oats and will def be trying more chickpeas in our diet

  279. Jenny Brears January 10, 2017 at 9:48 am #

    The overnight oats ????

  280. Cathy Philips January 10, 2017 at 10:04 am #

    Heat one brown rice cup and place in bowl. Add baby spinach, chopped cherry tomato, cucumber, avocado and chickpeas (if you want, pan fry in olive oil with some smoked paprika first), feta cheese.

    This looks so yummy

  281. Ella January 10, 2017 at 10:12 am #

    Love the idea of brown rice as a base for adding salad ingredients and salmon. Bit different to eating just salad which you do get sick of easily

  282. Kim January 10, 2017 at 10:18 am #

    I love all your idea`s! I am going to try the overnight oats and chia puddings for starters! Thank you!

  283. Alexia Rae January 10, 2017 at 10:25 am #

    Love the lunch idea! I need to eat more chickpeas 😉

  284. Lucy January 10, 2017 at 10:31 am #

    Love how you have just outlined what the essentials are to have in the fridge/pantry to be able to throw together a quick healthy snack/meal. This will help us stay on track as only good stuff will be in the kithen!

  285. Claudia C January 10, 2017 at 10:42 am #

    Love all your breakfast ideas – especially the chia seed pudding! Have been helping mum with getting her diabetes in check so a yummy healthy breakfast like the ones you suggest will set her up to have a good day. Thank you!

  286. Jenelle January 10, 2017 at 10:45 am #

    Chia puddings, They are soooo good!! There are also alot of other good recipes here im going to try!!

  287. Jamal Peneha January 10, 2017 at 10:49 am #

    Chia Seed Pudding! I loved soaked oats, and the fact that it’s basically the same concept is so easy. The dish can easily be turned into a healthy dessert which is awesome. I also love Chia seeds because they’re really good for your digestive health as well.

  288. Sam January 10, 2017 at 10:50 am #

    Chickpea lunch idea has absolutely sold me! Cherry tomatoes ????

  289. Lisette Montgomerie January 10, 2017 at 10:51 am #

    The homemade bliss balls to have healthy snacks on hand – it’s always when I need a snack that you want to grab something fast so agree that healthy ready made on hand is the key!

  290. Amy Bell January 10, 2017 at 10:54 am #

    They all sound delish! Definitely interested in overnight oats ????

  291. Fiona January 10, 2017 at 10:55 am #

    I like the quinoa salmon lunch recipe! Yum!

  292. Kirsty Hartley January 10, 2017 at 10:56 am #

    Definitely the snack ideas as I am always looking for more healthy options to have between meals.

  293. Alex January 10, 2017 at 11:01 am #

    The smoothies! Such a good way to pack in those vege 🙂

  294. Harriet January 10, 2017 at 11:03 am #

    Love the idea of using chick peas in lunches, cheap and easy to store at work!

  295. Steph McLean January 10, 2017 at 11:04 am #

    I’m looking forward to giving the overnight oats and the smoothie recipes a go, always on the lookout for a easy healthy breakfast 🙂

  296. Janine Joyce January 10, 2017 at 11:10 am #

    LOVE the brown rice and salmon lunch ideas and buying the instant rice cups just makes it that much easier. Cant believe ive never thought about buying them!
    Awesome blog 🙂

  297. Ebonii January 10, 2017 at 11:11 am #

  299. Nadine January 10, 2017 at 11:29 am #

    Chia seed pudding ?

  300. Pip January 10, 2017 at 11:29 am #

    My favourite would be the lunch ideas with the brown rice they both sound delicious. We normally do leftovers for lunch. But there are some days we don’t have leftovers so love the idea of keeping a couple of easy heat cups of brown rice to add with salad ingredients and salmon! Yum!!!
    Prezzie card would definitely help stock the cupboard full of goodness!

  301. Joanne January 10, 2017 at 11:40 am #

    Sweet omelettes, never thought of that before! Will defiantly have to try a few of these ideas out.

  302. Christina Hibbard January 10, 2017 at 12:00 pm #

    My favorite idea is the tin of salmon for the pantry. Such a versital meal maker and keeps for ages

  303. Emma January 10, 2017 at 12:17 pm #

    We love overnight oats!!

  304. Ange January 10, 2017 at 12:18 pm #

    This salad sounds amazing. Will definitely be making it for work lunches. Thanks for the great tips!

    Heat one brown rice cup and place in bowl. Add baby spinach, chopped cherry tomato, cucumber, avocado and chickpeas (if you want, pan fry in olive oil with some smoked paprika first), feta cheese.

  305. Leona January 10, 2017 at 12:19 pm #

    I’d like to share my healthy salad idea :o) …

    Raw Broccoli Salad

    In a bowl throw in all the following….

    1 Head of Broccoli (Wash and break Broccoli down to bite size, not too big – discard the rest)
    1 Red Onion (thinly sliced)
    Cherry Tomatoes (halves)
    Red, Green, Yellow, Orange Capsicums (Sliced 2 pieces of each Capsicums and Dice them together)
    1 Medium Cucumber (Sliced)
    1 Firm Avocado (Diced)
    Sesame Seeds (Toast in a Skillet for 3 minutes stirring well with a wooden spoon)

    For Garnish
    Half Lime and Lemon (Squeezed Juice) *Optional*
    Olive Oil
    Fresh Parsley (Chopped)

    Toss or stir all ingredients until well combined.

    Pink Himalayan Salt and Pepper to taste. Enjoy!

    NOTE: I use Best Food Mayo in my Broccoli Salad but choose whatever dressing you like. Perfect for that Summer BBQ or enjoy as a snack! I always eat this on it’s own.

  306. Rosanna January 10, 2017 at 12:20 pm #

    My favourite is the bliss balls i really like them and like trying new recipes for them

  307. Melissa January 10, 2017 at 12:22 pm #

    Would love to make the overnight oats….would be prefect to take on the go when Uni starts back

  308. Natasha January 10, 2017 at 12:24 pm #

    The brown rice lunch salads – I never think to use rice for lunch!

  309. Shona Robertson January 10, 2017 at 12:27 pm #

    Wow, very helpful! I love the pantry/fridge essential ideas and other options. You’ve put together some really good ideas for all meals and I love them all. It’s one thing having lots of healthy food available which I’ve definitely started doing but having great ideas to follow is a huge bonus. It gets a bit hard being a busy working mum of 3 boys. All of these recipes look amazing and not very time consuming. Thanks for the ideas and inspiration.

  310. Lana January 10, 2017 at 12:32 pm #

    My favourite is the bliss ball snack idea ! I’m a constant snacked especially at work and these will be great I can freeze them and make them in bulk , means the chocolate can be put to rest and these will be so much better for me !
    Thanks for the recipe ????

  311. Courtney Wills January 10, 2017 at 12:39 pm #

    The lunch idea looks delicious!!!

  312. Lizzie January 10, 2017 at 12:44 pm #

    I’m definitely about the snack ideas! I always find that that’s my weakest point and I always end up going for something easy and typically unhealthy. Definitely going to be trying some of these out this year!

  313. Robert January 10, 2017 at 12:50 pm #

    Cashew and coconut and strawberry nutty granola ????

  314. Anita Nola January 10, 2017 at 12:55 pm #

    I love the overnight oats! So simple and easy – perfect for the morning rush. They’re also delicious. I use different fruit and nut combinations so that it always tastes different.

  315. Bella January 10, 2017 at 12:59 pm #

    a holy YES to the chia seed puddings. I need to try!!

  316. Charmaine Shaw January 10, 2017 at 1:04 pm #

    Il be trying a few of these recipes. I love salmon so will try the salmon salad with some roasted chickpeas!!! Yum yum!

  317. Liz January 10, 2017 at 1:47 pm #

    Chia seed puddings look yum and I didn’t realise you only need 2 table spoons per serve! I always thought they were too expensive for a student budget but maybe I will invest seeing as a little going a long way 🙂

  318. Charlotte January 10, 2017 at 1:48 pm #

    The Chia Puddings sound delish! I love that you’ve added single servings. I live alone and often find that I never portion size correctly and end up over eating as I hate the thought of wasting it. Looking forward to trying all these ideas and stocking up the pantry!

  319. Kirsten M January 10, 2017 at 1:59 pm #

    Love the DIY snack suggestions like bliss balls and chickpeas! It’s hard to eat on the go some days but it looks super simple to sort snacks out with your pantry item suggestions 🙂

  320. Rosie Simkins January 10, 2017 at 2:05 pm #

    Chia puddings! I have always wanted to know how to make them! Thanks, I will def be trying those out 🙂

  321. Donna Price January 10, 2017 at 2:23 pm #

    The chickpea salad idea for lunch. I struggle to find ideas for lunch. Because of my diabetes I tend to avoid bread, rice, pasta etc just because I cannot afford to have my blood sugars dropping around 3pm when most of our meetings are held.

  322. Kelly January 10, 2017 at 2:39 pm #

    I love the lunch ideas – always looking for tasty and healthy options both when at home on holiday and also back at work. Thanks for all the great ideas !

  323. Ashlee Fidow January 10, 2017 at 3:02 pm #

    The salad because I’m terrible at coming up with salad ideas

  324. Jonty Wood January 10, 2017 at 3:36 pm #

    Would love to try the chia pudding with my $150 prezzy card!!

  325. Tammy January 10, 2017 at 3:46 pm #

    Overnight oats sounds delish can’t wait to create my own!

  326. Courtney January 10, 2017 at 3:46 pm #

    The chickpeas in smoked paprika sounds great! I’m not normally a fan of them but going to give it a try!

  327. Natalie January 10, 2017 at 4:12 pm #

    My favourite idea has to be the lunch ideas im always looking for fresh new salad recipes as I’m not a huge breakfast eater lunch is usually my main meal for the day, knowing what essentials to have is also a huge help to start a new :).

  328. Adele January 10, 2017 at 4:12 pm #

    Homemade (or bought) bliss balls are always a winner! I love cranberry ones, I’ll be checking out that recipe too! I’d make them more if dates were much cheaper, student budget only allows for the occasional luxury like that.

  329. Jade January 10, 2017 at 4:12 pm #

    Dewinkles Yogurt is the yummiest after dinner snack ever 🙂 Also perfect with muesli, in dips, and in curries.

  330. Bethani January 10, 2017 at 4:15 pm #

    The chia seed pudding sounds interesting. 🙂 I’ve really taken a liking to salmon for quick delicious dinners over the previous year.

  331. Rebecca Deakins January 10, 2017 at 4:18 pm #

    Like the smoothie ideas how you can chuck nuts, seeds and oats to make it healthier with your fruit

  332. Nikita January 10, 2017 at 4:20 pm #

    Mmmm the chickpeas with smoked paprika sound nice!

  333. Natasha January 10, 2017 at 4:34 pm #

    Homemade Bliss Balls!! Yummm <3

  334. Juliet January 10, 2017 at 4:57 pm #

    Favourite idea is definitely the homemade bliss balls. You can never go wrong with them and they’re the perfect healthy snack!

  335. Krystine Bell January 10, 2017 at 5:08 pm #

    I love the chia seed pudding idea. Im going to try it tonight for breaky tomorrow 🙂

  336. Louise January 10, 2017 at 5:13 pm #

    Love the idea of the overnight oats, so glad to see the youghurt I have been eating is on here and have purchased spinach for the first time as well. Spinach with tomato in a cup cake pan with an egg and milk mixture is also very good!

  337. Mikaela January 10, 2017 at 5:13 pm #

    The home made muesli looks so good!

  338. cindy Hughes January 10, 2017 at 5:14 pm #

    The homemade muesli sounds fab ?

  339. Danielle Crow January 10, 2017 at 5:32 pm #


  340. Nicole Nguyen January 10, 2017 at 5:38 pm #

    Smoothies is my favourite idea ????????????

  341. Amanda January 10, 2017 at 5:38 pm #

    The snack idea, looks selfish ?

  342. Amanda January 10, 2017 at 5:39 pm #

    Snack idea looks delish ????

  343. Brooke M January 10, 2017 at 5:42 pm #

  344. Meg January 10, 2017 at 5:45 pm #

    The chia pudding looks delicious and easy!! will def be trying it out 🙂

  345. Ashleigh January 10, 2017 at 5:46 pm #

    I love the idea of homemade muesli!!! My new years resolution this year is to eat my own home grown veggies and too ditch the microwave. Bring on 2017.

  346. Danielle January 10, 2017 at 5:49 pm #

    My favourite idea is the chia pudding – I have been wanting to try make one for ages I didn’t realise it was so easy and I am so surprised with the amount of fibre in chia seeds! I also love the chickpea salad suggestion – I absolutely love chickpeas in salads, I go through several cans a week usually!

  347. Reegan Brown January 10, 2017 at 5:52 pm #

    Your chocolate, banana and hazelnut omelette! I’ve never thought of making a sweet omelette and definitely going to have to try it, let’s hope my uni student grocery budget cuts it hahaha

  348. Rebecca cunningham Rose January 10, 2017 at 5:55 pm #

    I going to try the chick pea lunch idea

  349. Rebecca cunningham Rose January 10, 2017 at 5:56 pm #

  354. Jo January 10, 2017 at 7:13 pm #

    Definitely the Chia puddings!????

  355. Ashleigh January 10, 2017 at 7:18 pm #

    my favourite recipe idea is definitely the chia pudding! i never know what to eat for breakfast in summer when it is too hot for cooked meals, i have a small appetite but need energy for the day, and i have no time before i am out the door. these are the perfect solution!

  356. Stephanie Finnie January 10, 2017 at 7:21 pm #

    The lunch ideas!! Always stuck for them and these sound delish om nom

  357. Kara January 10, 2017 at 7:25 pm #

    Trying the chia seed pudding for breakfast tomorrow, it’s the most gorgeous colour!

  359. Karena January 10, 2017 at 8:06 pm #

    Love the lunch ideas, I always struggle to know what to have for lunch and usually reach for carbs

  360. Brittany January 10, 2017 at 8:11 pm #

    Chiaseed puddings sounds great! Wouldn’t mind trying overnight oats either!! Will definitely try them out!

  361. Sian crouch January 10, 2017 at 8:19 pm #

    I love how many easy and quick lunch ideas there are I’m a nanny so this is perfect to me

  362. Kelly Johnson January 10, 2017 at 8:22 pm #

    Roasted chickpeas ???? Can’t wait to try

  363. Ashliegh January 10, 2017 at 8:30 pm #

    my favourite idea would defiantly have to be the overnight oats that sounds so yummy I’m going to make this before I go to bed tonight and try it in the morning 🙂 even though all the ideas are great this one just stands out well to me. thanks for your inspiration 🙂

  364. Alyssa McGregor January 10, 2017 at 8:33 pm #

    I love the idea of chickpeas for lunch with paprika, pesto,tomatoes etc. Definitely going to try as GF & a change up from my usual salad!

  365. Ellie January 10, 2017 at 8:36 pm #

    My fav is definitely the overnight oats. So quick to grab in the morning!

  366. Natasha Wallis January 10, 2017 at 8:42 pm #

    I’d love to try your homemade bliss balls, I’m forever trying to find snacks that are a little healthier

  367. Hannah Henson January 10, 2017 at 8:46 pm #

    This is so helpful! Definitely going to help me plan out the pantry when I move into my new flat and keep me eating healthy! 🙂
    I am the biggest fan of breakfasts and overnight oats have always been my go-to because they are so easy, healthy and versatile and for someone who’s on hospital shifts regularly now that’s ideal! I’m always looking for ways to spice them up and keep them interesting though 🙂
    Bliss balls come in a close second though, they are so quick, easy and delicious to make and so good to keep on hands during shifts!
    Love your page!

  368. Jordayne January 10, 2017 at 9:33 pm #

    Definitely the egg breakfasts. I love eggs in the morning

  369. Megan January 10, 2017 at 9:36 pm #

    My favourite recipe from above would have to be the plum, cashew and coconut muesli. Now days it’s so hard to find store bought muesli that isn’t loaded with sugar, so this recipe will definitely be made often!

  370. Katie Morrison January 10, 2017 at 9:56 pm #

    Salmon & feta cheese salad sounds delish 🙂 all ingredients that I love!

  371. Erin Firmin January 10, 2017 at 10:05 pm #

    Roasted chickpeas sound yum

  372. Sarah January 10, 2017 at 10:23 pm #

    Mmm chia seed pudding!!

  373. Selina January 10, 2017 at 10:27 pm #

    Home made bliss balls,perfect for when I’m breastfeeding and need a snack

  374. Amanda Crawford January 10, 2017 at 10:28 pm #

    I’ve wanted to try make overnight oats for ages but have never got round to it. The picture looks amazing, I’ll definitely have to get some passion fruit to with it.

  375. Ruby Turner January 10, 2017 at 10:30 pm #

    I love them all, but mostly the overnight oats. Here’s to a healthy 2017

  376. Paigan January 10, 2017 at 11:21 pm #

    The Chia puddings as it is something I have never have, can’t wait to give this a go.

  377. Sophie L January 10, 2017 at 11:25 pm #

    Roasted chickpeas – yum!

  378. Michelle January 10, 2017 at 11:31 pm #

    Overnight oats for sure!

  379. tam January 11, 2017 at 12:00 am #

    Eggs for breakfast! Incredible creation they are. Good source of B12 (vitamin for brain health) and for cholesterol. Yay for nature.

  380. Amy January 11, 2017 at 6:00 am #

    I liked the snack ideas most – something I usually struggle with for healthy ideas…

  381. Reanna leef January 11, 2017 at 6:44 am #

    My favourite recipe is the overnight oats !! Seems so easy for a new mom to have ready for when she wakes as sometimes you get lost for time and forget to eat breaky.

  382. Emma January 11, 2017 at 6:48 am #

    Pesto chickpeas not something i have tried currently doing overnight oats and bliss balls eat brown rice

  383. Allecia January 11, 2017 at 7:29 am #

    I move the brown rice cup idea. I always make my own brown rice so only have it for dinner. I love that there are these scups available so I can easily make a rice salad at work for lunch! Also with using chia seeds, lsa etc how much do you put in a smoothie? Thanks I have saved this post to my favourites and will be using this as my guide!

  384. Allecia January 11, 2017 at 7:31 am #

    I love your brown rice cup idea. I didn’t know these existed. Now I can have brown rice for lunch. Thanks for all of this information. I will be saving this post to my favourites and using it as a guide!

  385. Celeste January 11, 2017 at 7:42 am #

  386. julia January 11, 2017 at 7:43 am #

    I love your snack recommendations, they’re always my downfall! But I think your bliss ball suggestion could be the perfect pick me up when the dreaded 3pm arrives!

  394. Antoni January 11, 2017 at 9:22 am #

  395. Atawhai January 11, 2017 at 9:22 am #

  412. Leonie grogan January 11, 2017 at 10:59 am #

  427. Sarah Davies January 11, 2017 at 12:31 pm #

  436. Rachael January 11, 2017 at 2:03 pm #

    I would love to give the home made museli a go! To save money I am trying to use up all the things we currently have in our fridge/freezer and cupboards so it would be great to whip up a big batch of healthy museli that will keep us full without a tone of added sugars!

  437. Amelia January 11, 2017 at 2:20 pm #

    Bliss balls are the best for a sweet treat. If I don’t have time to make my own I’ll buy the Tom & Luke ones, they’re delish!

  439. Jeanette Gregan January 11, 2017 at 2:27 pm #

    I love the idea of chia seeds, they are fantastic in a smoothie for breakfast, it really helps you feel full for most of the day, and it means that you only need to top up for lunch and dinner.

  440. Fiona Burt January 11, 2017 at 2:34 pm #

    Hi there…we are just reorganising our pantry and trying to get rid of all the junkfood in our life. We are trying to built good habits for our 3 kids. I have started making smoothies everyday and they love it…well baby number 3 cant have any yet but soon…a 150$ prezzy card would last us a long way! Yummy post…now I feel hungry!

  445. Kerri Duncan January 11, 2017 at 3:11 pm #

  449. Jess January 11, 2017 at 3:35 pm #

    These lunch ideas look fantastic. As a student trying to stay healthy – thanks for coming up with some cheap and yummy recipes!

  450. Shannon January 11, 2017 at 3:36 pm #

  463. Emma January 11, 2017 at 5:30 pm #

    Over night oats are one of my favourite breakfasts, they’re also great for early starters and those who tend to skip breakfast. I’ve encouraged a lot of dairy farmers to take a portion with them to the shed during their morning milk.

  464. Kerri January 11, 2017 at 5:36 pm #

    I’m big into smoothies at the moment! Great link to your other article, thanks!

  465. Natalie January 11, 2017 at 5:52 pm #

    Home made bliss balls. I’m great at healthy meals, but getting the munchies really gets me. I used to work at tank and I remember frooze balls, and I’ve made my own ever since. Better in the freezer and having cold with a nice big cup of water.

  466. Ben W January 11, 2017 at 5:57 pm #

  475. Caitlin. January 11, 2017 at 7:24 pm #

    Chickpeas and paprika? I think yes.

  476. Julia January 11, 2017 at 7:44 pm #

  491. Marika Berney January 11, 2017 at 9:36 pm #

    I definitely love the idea of Chia puddings in summer because they’re such a nice cold little treat ! ??

  492. Hine Heta January 11, 2017 at 9:55 pm #

    My favorite in particular was probably the oats! Just because I always tend to skip breakfast in the morning, so this would be a fast way to fuel up for the day????

  500. Megna January 12, 2017 at 1:03 am #

    My favourite idea was the chia puddings 🙂

  501. Savannah January 12, 2017 at 1:51 am #

    The smoothie section was nice (and had a great pic!). I have a medical condition which means I feel extremely sick and almost throw up when I eat solid food at breakfast, so smoothies are what I normally start the day off with.

  502. Yvette January 12, 2017 at 2:44 am #

    I love the chia pudding idea!! I’m going to make one up for tomorrow ???? I struggle to get enough fibre so it’s an awesome idea!

  511. Jamie moar January 12, 2017 at 7:27 am #

    I like the look of the muesli and the fact that i can put my favourite nuts and dried fruits in it. I keep meaning to try making it but when i go to buy all the nuts and seeds i can never justify it.

  512. Melissa Tilbury January 12, 2017 at 7:27 am #

    I love the Chia pudding recipe. I get stuck for ideas for breakast and tend to eat the same breakfast every day. Your chia pudding recipe sounds so delicious and nutritious. My kids would love it too and I love knowing my kids have had a healthy start to their day.

    Yum. Ive decided to try harder to eat healthy in 2017! I love the salad ideas for lunch. I really enjoy delicious salads, but struggle to have the ideas to make them myself. Toasting the chickpeas with smoked paprika is something im definitely going to try out!

  526. Laura January 12, 2017 at 9:18 am #

    I love having snacks for after work and mid work and every other time. Trying those out

  527. Rachael Wilcock January 12, 2017 at 9:22 am #

    Lunch ideas are the best! Brown rice cups with salad and some protein (smoked salmon). Quick and easy 🙂

  528. Marama January 12, 2017 at 9:37 am #

    I love the look of those mueslis. Never thought of using cashews, but YUM.

  529. Pip January 12, 2017 at 9:53 am #

    Definitely the Chia Puddings I am a sucler for them! 🙂 I really like choc chia pudding with berries Yum!

  530. Haidee January 12, 2017 at 10:22 am #

    The lunch ideas are my favourite!

  531. Bonnie Coutts January 12, 2017 at 10:42 am #

    Over night oats!! Yum!

  532. Laura January 12, 2017 at 10:59 am #

    Oh! The chia pudding is a great idea to prep ahead!

  533. Samantha Scahill January 12, 2017 at 11:00 am #

    The link to the chocolate omelette has blown my mind… i’ve never had a sweet omelette before and can’t wait to try it! I’ve just bought chocolate peanut butter as well which I reckon will go perfectly on top! As a university student as well the overnight oats might become a staple for my early mornings.

  534. Gina Stephenson January 12, 2017 at 11:24 am #

    That brown rice and vege lunch thing looks amazing!

  535. Viv January 12, 2017 at 11:40 am #

    The plum cashew and coconut granola sounds amazing! Definitely want to have a go at making it this weekend 🙂

  536. Emma January 12, 2017 at 12:04 pm #

    the lunch ideas sound absolutely delicious

  537. Pip January 12, 2017 at 12:10 pm #

    I am a sucker for the chia pudding – I especially love choc chia pudding with berries Yum!

  538. Eleanor Wood January 12, 2017 at 12:11 pm #

    Loving smoothie recipes at the moment! Got a new nutri ninja for christmas so anything smootie related sounds great to me!

  539. Devon January 12, 2017 at 12:21 pm #

    Chia seed pudding yum yum yum!!! Our local gf/naturals cafe closed down yesterday in town so this article has been amazing! I used to buy the chia pudding most days as it’s so filling and so delicious! Thank you!! Definitely going to try these recipes, the chick peas sounds devine also!

  540. Jess January 12, 2017 at 12:36 pm #

    The overnight oats and brown rice lunch idea sound amazing and fairly easy to do (which is important because I am not a great cook so need all the help I can get)!

  541. John Key January 12, 2017 at 12:36 pm #

    Eggs, eggs, eggs, eggs! Aren’t they just amazing! So versatile and delicious. Brilliant to get some more fresh ideas on what to use them for 🙂 I’ve always been a lover, now I have even more inspiration to fill in my free time.

  542. Erena H January 12, 2017 at 12:42 pm #

    I am a huge fan of porridge but yes the summer does get to hot for a hot bowl of morning porridge. I loved the idea of the overnight porridge! Perfect for those lazy mornings as well 😀

  543. Kate January 12, 2017 at 1:01 pm #

    Definitely the homemade bliss balls, snacking is always hard when trying to eat healthy- especially something sweet!

  544. Aleisha January 12, 2017 at 2:48 pm #

    The lunch ideas section had some awesome ideas. I love crispy, fresh salads during the summer.

  545. Marina January 12, 2017 at 3:26 pm #

    Definitely the Chia pudding… have throughly enjoyed it in the past 🙂

  546. Shannon January 12, 2017 at 3:32 pm #

    Awesome idea with the chia seed pudding!
    Great for my kids to get them eating healthy because its a pudding too!

  547. Bridie January 12, 2017 at 3:34 pm #

    This looks like our pantry, however I need to get on the chia pudding bandwagon.. raspberry and coconut looks amazing!

  548. Mary January 12, 2017 at 3:44 pm #

    I like you section on quick lunches! I’m finding it hard to come up with quick, easy and healthy options.

  549. Cathryn January 12, 2017 at 3:44 pm #

    Eggs for breakfast! I love variety so can’t nail it down further haha

  550. Leilani January 12, 2017 at 3:54 pm #

    I love the overnight oats idea. I’ve recently changed my eating and have been having porridge for breakfast. It’s new for me and I’m not really loving it. I’m going to try the way you suggested tomorrow 🙂

  551. Brooke Swaney January 12, 2017 at 3:55 pm #

    The chickpea salad for lunch sounds delish! Definitely one to try xx

  552. Emily Griffin January 12, 2017 at 4:01 pm #

    I always struggle with ideas for lunches so that whole section was my favourite, but particularly the quinoa, smoked salmon and veges!

  553. Lyn January 12, 2017 at 4:04 pm #

    Keen to give sweet omelettes a go!! Thanks ????????

  554. Vanessa January 12, 2017 at 4:15 pm #

    The chia pudding looks amazing!!

  555. Gemma January 12, 2017 at 4:24 pm #

    the different variations for eggs. love eggs! thanks for the ideas.

  556. Abbie January 12, 2017 at 4:28 pm #

    The chickpeas, vege and feta idea sounds divine and so easy to make for lunch! Especially since I’m always running late and that sounds awesome. Will definitely be trying that

  557. Mel January 12, 2017 at 5:02 pm #

    Definitely chia seed pudding! Never attempted to make before but would love to

  558. Samantha Leigh January 12, 2017 at 5:20 pm #

    All of the lunch ideas sound absolutely delicious! Would love to win the voucher towards ingredients to try some! Thanks 🙂

  559. Rena January 12, 2017 at 5:38 pm #

    Lunch idea! Convenient for those long uni days 🙂

  560. Kate January 12, 2017 at 5:40 pm #

    Love the homemade muesli!! Always a good option

  561. Naziya January 12, 2017 at 5:41 pm #

    Homemade Bliss Balls for sure ! They look really yummy and look really easy to make. I’m alway craving that 3pm snack at work and this would be perfect and its healthy !

  562. Amy January 12, 2017 at 5:43 pm #

    I love the green smoothie recipe, I struggle with making good flavour combinations. This sounds like the perfect mix to get that green into me!

  563. Mackenzie January 12, 2017 at 6:05 pm #

    The lunch ideas! I love salmon but can’t afford to buy it very often. Tinned salmon is a great idea, as is frying the chickpeas with some yummy flavours!

  564. Connie January 12, 2017 at 6:42 pm #

    Love the idea of homemade bliss balls, currently buy them but want to start making them. Love the recipe provided!

  565. Nic January 12, 2017 at 7:13 pm #

    The snack balls.

  566. Sandra Davie January 12, 2017 at 7:22 pm #

    This looks a lot like my pantry and fridge 🙂

    Have never had roasted chickpeas though – awesome idea, can’t wait to try it out!

  567. CHERYL January 12, 2017 at 7:43 pm #

    Lunch ideas look great! So keen to try something new and surprisingly have a lot of the ingredients already in the fridge! 🙂

  568. Kat OConnell January 12, 2017 at 8:00 pm #

    Lunch ideas. I am running out healthy ideas so this is a great ideas for me

  569. Olivia January 12, 2017 at 8:07 pm #

    The chia seed puddings. Amazing idea! I’m going to make some right now for tomorrow’s dessert 🙁

  570. Caitlyn January 12, 2017 at 8:11 pm #

    I would love to try the roasted chickpeas as a snack option, sounds yummy ????

  571. Alex January 12, 2017 at 8:42 pm #

    The bliss balls! They are such a good thing to have on hand, even grab in the morning on my way to work to have something to get my metabolism started and then have my overnight oats at my desk at work. Also grab a bliss ball between meetings or on my way to/from the gym when I’m getting hungry! So good!

  572. Marie snell January 12, 2017 at 8:50 pm #

    I always struggle with snacks and always reach for president packets stuff so the bliss balls took my fancy and looked amazing also loved the idea of the Chia seed puddings I have never had them before as never know how to use them but have been on a weight lose journey and doing so well but needed some new ideas so this will helps helps thank you ???? storing these in the bank for sure

  573. Tori January 12, 2017 at 9:04 pm #

    Home made bliss balls! I suffer terribly from a sweet tooth and these are just what I need to keep the craving at bay!

  574. Evvie January 12, 2017 at 9:07 pm #

    The granola looks like a lovely recipe to try out! Will try out the strawberry and coconut as a breakfast food and a granola bar snack ????????????

  575. Lisa Williams January 12, 2017 at 9:09 pm #

    The first lunch idea with brown rice mix with raspberry vinegarette

  576. Adele Box January 12, 2017 at 9:16 pm #

    I would love the overnight oats or the Chia pudding, I never have enough time in the morning to do a proper breakfast

  577. Tara January 12, 2017 at 9:24 pm #

    Wow those bliss balls look great, they’re expensive to buy pre-made too! Awesome article ????

  578. Tiana January 12, 2017 at 9:33 pm #

    Lunch is my weakness, I struggle to stray from the classic cheese and lettuce sandwich so i’ll definitely be trying the quinoa recipe – because I love it!

  579. Stephanie January 12, 2017 at 9:39 pm #

    Omlette with feta + veges ???????????????????? yuuuum *drool ????

  580. Cheyenne January 12, 2017 at 9:53 pm #

    Love the idea for bliss balls. I always find that I need that little snack to keep me going towards the end of the day so will diffently be trying these out.

  581. Rebeka Wolfgramm January 13, 2017 at 8:56 am #

    Overnight oats are such an easy idea! Thanks xx

  582. Diane Davidson January 13, 2017 at 3:56 pm #

    I like the homemade blissballs concept. Mid-afternoon can be a dangerous trap for me . Even though I’ve done well up until 3.30 I find that I frequently feel hyperglycemic at this time of day. A tasty little treat like these would be a quick pick-me-up!

  583. Michele Mehana-Hansen January 13, 2017 at 6:29 pm #

    Smoothies sound yum. And guess what hubby won a breville ‘boss to go” smoothies mixer from his work this week. Obviously a sign and a good start for 2017

  584. Ange H January 19, 2017 at 12:05 pm #

    Love the chia puddings. So easy to make and so filling.

  585. Helen January 27, 2017 at 3:15 pm #

    The chia pudding is the one for me sounds yummy
