Chicken Gnocchi Soup – This is a creamy and hearty soup that is pure comfort in a bowl. Plus it is packed full of nutrients.

Chicken Schnitzel – everyone loves a good chicken schnitzel and it is so satisfying on nights when I have the time to make them from scratch. The flavour is just so much nicer. The recipe below has a clever tip to season the chicken before coating in flour.

Asian Beef Rice Bowls – this is a fairly quick and easy dinner to make, and it is full of flavour. The strong flavours of the cooked mince work perfectly with some rice and steamed veggies, all served together in a bowl.

Honey Soy Chicken – the house always smells wonderful after this slow cooked recipe has been simmering away. Served with rice and some steamed greens this meal is delicious and satisfying.
Tacos– it’s not Taco Tuesday but Taco Friday instead. This meal is always a hit with kids, especially if they get to assemble the tacos themselves. Set out lots of fresh ingredients for your kiddos to add to their tacos to up the health factor.

Prawn Fried Rice– Fried rice is such a quick dinner to throw together and everyone always loves it. Switch out the prawns for chicken, pork or make a vegetarian version if you’re not a fan of prawns.

Cheeseburger Pasta Bake – Is it a cheeseburger or is it pasta bake? This dish is a little bit naughty but brings together the best of both dishes. The ultimate comfort food, and goes perfectly with a salad on the side.

Almond & Pumpkin Seed Bliss Balls – these bliss balls are delicious and nutritious! Plus they are full of antioxidants, magnesium and fibre. Perfect for a healthy lunch box treat.
