My apologies that the meal planning posts have been absent lately. I decided to stop the meal plans for a little while because I am making a big change to my health and that includes my diet. I had a reality check when I went to the doctor a few months ago to talk about […]

    Corn fritters are a great healthy go-to recipe and stupidly cheap! We have them with a yogurt dressing and salad probably once a fortnightReplyCancel

    • usually I make chicken and corn fritters, I might try a batch of just corn, and love the idea of a yoghurt dressing. Thanks for sharingReplyCancel

  • Tess Thomson

    I just wanted to wish you all the best and good luck with your new goals for your diet, exercise and a better life! Keep it up :)ReplyCancel

  • Hi Kat,

    You may not remember me, but I have met you at a few Problogger conferences. I was actually embarrassed to talk to you because I could write a blog called “The Disorganized Housewife”. However, you might like to check out my healthy living blog – lost 35kg and kept it off – under the recipe tabs – meals the entire family should enjoy!

    Best, Liz N (www.lastchancetraining.com.au)ReplyCancel

    • Hi Liz!! Wow that is extraordinary, congratulations on such a great loss. Are you coming to the next ProBlogger conference, I will be talking there!! I’m off to have a look for a few recipes and follow your blog!!ReplyCancel

      • Hey Kat, just realized that they’re all under “nutrition”, not recipes (told you I was organisationally challenged!). I sure am coming to the next PB conference as it’s in Qld and I’m from Brisbane. I really think that meal planning is half the battle – I know how much easier things were from a weight loss perspective when I was organised and knew ahead of time what was for dinner – so in my humble opinion, you’re on an excellent path!ReplyCancel

    • Liz I can’t find your recipes tab, can you share a link??ReplyCancel

  • Emma Mitchel

    Yes Corn fritters are delish, i have them with an avocado and tomato salsa and some mayo… now i want them, lolReplyCancel

    • my mouth is watering for the avocado and tomato salsa, yummo, great ideaReplyCancel

  • Amie McIlroy

    Well done Kat on starting your journey to a healthier you!ReplyCancel

  • Nicola

    My son was born 7 months ago and I have had the realisation that Ineed to loose the baby weight to fit into my work clothes! I’ve been using an app called MyFitnessPal (I’m in no way affiliated!) and its great to help track food and exercise. It has Aussie foods in its database and links in with a whole host of other fitness apps. I’ve lost 4kg so far :)

    Good luck with your efforts – you CAN do it!ReplyCancel

  • Nataasha Torzsa

    Hi Kat,

    Well done on starting your journey. At only 23 I am doing something similar. I come to your site for recipe inspiration sometimes. My favourite healthy meals are zucchini slice, fritters, stirfries, chicken & home made sweet potato fries. I love quinoa but it makes me sick in the stomache :-(ReplyCancel

  • Kat I think that it is wonderful you are taking steps to change your health and life. Well done to you.ReplyCancel

  • SNAP! I’m doing chicken, leek & blue cheese pie tonight ;) I think the cooler weather just gets me in a pie making mood. Love the mexican layered dip too, yum!ReplyCancel

  • Suzanne

    During cooler weather, VERY early in the morning or after the sun has gone down is when I make meals the require oven cooking. I have become handy with the slow cooker and even hubby, who HATED it, has become a convert. It uses less energy (money), less effort and it’s so lovely to have a meal ready at the end of day surrounded by a clean kitchen.

    It’s only 26*c at the moment so I did Greek theme: Greek salad, Spanikopita, Dolmathes with Avgelemono Sauce. Salad is a jiff to make. Spanikopita were made ahead then baked out of the freezer. Dolmathes were made ahead already cooked so just needed warming in the micro. Avgelemono Sauce was fresh. From start to finish (freezer to finish for some items) in about 1 hour. Left overs? Sorry, none :)

  • I LOVE cooking with panko – sooooo yummy!ReplyCancel

  • That fish dish looks really good Kat. Reading your post I think a little spice would be work really well with it. A little chilli or cayenne maybe?ReplyCancel

    • I agree, cayenne is a good idea. My hubby added some Chilli seasoning in his after I served it and he said it helped. The kids didn’t mind it so bland, but we adults need a little more of somethin’ReplyCancel

    That cheesecake slice looks too, too good! Would kill for some of that right now :)
    Thanks for linking back. That frittata is really yummy and really easy to make. Even Mr Monkey liked it! :)ReplyCancel

    • Ooh that slice is yummy, you should make it, great way to use up the easter eggs :)ReplyCancel

      • flyingdrunkenmonkey

        I would except I have Gestational Diabetes so wouldn’t be able to eat it anyway! Plus, for the same reason we don’t have many Easter eggs. I’ll have to keep it in mind for next year :)ReplyCancel

    I love white chocolate and macadamia as a cookie/muffin combo, this sounds delicious. Thanks Kat!ReplyCancel

  • Becci Sundberg

    Hope you enjoy the Corned Beef. These days I tend to put it in frozen too. Have found that it’s the best way to have a very moist piece of meat. I pop mine on no later than 10am though to make sure it’s cooked through and tender.ReplyCancel

  • Lynelle

    I like the sound of the coconut poached fish but think the price per serve can not possibly be accurate – where can you get 600g of fish PLUS all the other ingredients for less than $12?ReplyCancel

    • Good luck Mary, hopefully you can find some great tips through the website. My biggest tip for you would be to take little steps eg drawer by drawer, tabletop by tabletop, rather than making it a huge job like room by room.ReplyCancel

  • Trish

    The slice looks good Katrina – what a fabulous competition.ReplyCancel

  • Tracey

    Your slice recipe appeared at just the right time yesterday, as I was about to look for something to whip up for some last minute guests. Was super quick and easy to whip up, and as my 7 yr old “Masterchef judge” proclaimed…”You are the best baker ever!”ReplyCancel
