Cinnamon Spiced Orange Cake

Our ‘Cinnamon Spiced Orange Cake’ is inspired by Gwinganna Health and Lifestyle Retreat in Queensland. My Mum and I went there in 2012 just before the start of my HSC as a way for me to relax and de-stress prior to my exams. We both have such fond memories of our weekend in Gwinganna from afternoon walks, morning yoga sessions, …

‘Jaffa’ Hotcakes

Sunday mornings have just been that much better since we have really started to embrace ‘Pancake Sunday’. I must say this combination is definitely  up there as one of the best we’ve made so far (Although I feel like I say that after every batch of pancakes we make!) I would like give a big mention to Botanical Cuisine for their …

Sesame Crusted Tuna

This is definitely one of our main ‘go-to’ recipes when we have guests coming over for dinner. The great thing about it is that it can be almost ready before anyone arrives, the only thing that needs to be done at the last minute is grilling the tuna – and if you like it rare (as we do!) this will …

Brown Rice Truffle Infused Mushroom Risotto

Risotto is often one of the few vegetarian options available at restaurants, however it is traditionally made with cream and butter. We find these to be unnecessary ingredients and can easily be substituted with healthy alternatives such as organic cold pressed olive oil, or (as we have done for this recipe) black truffle oil…  You only need a drizzle of …

‘Creamy’ Thai Style Pumpkin Soup

In winter we find there is nothing quite like sitting down to a warm, nourishing bowl of soup… And as someone who has tried their fair share of soup, I can honestly say I am yet to find one as flavoursome and delicious as this! We have served this soup both as an entrée and as a main meal and …

Cumin-Kumera Chips

When I was little my mum would make oven-baked sweet potato chips (among other baked vegetables… so we had colourful chips in our household!). I may not have appreciated it so much back then but I most definitely appreciate them now. For me, kumera chips are one of those foods that bring back many fond childhood memories and for that …

Spicy Walnut Beetroot Dip

Spicy Walnut Beetroot Dip Our spicy walnut beetroot dip is deliciously creamy with a hint of spice… the only problem is that it is seriously addictive! This dip is great served on a mezze plate, combined with our aubergine and tahini dip, grapeseed guacamole and spicy carrot dip (recipes coming soon!) We find that there is something very satisfying about …

Red Spice Soup

  This is a very nourishing and flavoursome soup, filled with essential vitamins and nutrients in their natural form.  At Health Synergy, our philosophy is that the majority of nutrients our bodies need can be derived from our food, rather than relying on supplements for replenishment. The addition of superfood, turmeric, not only adds flavour to this recipe, but it …

Organic Truffle Eggs

Our organic truffle eggs make a simple and delicious dinner, full of nutrients and flavour! Coming from someone who is not usually a big fan of scrambled eggs, I can assure you these are no ordinary eggs… it’s amazing how much flavour is in the smallest drizzle of black truffle oil, combined with a few of our favourite sides including …

Acai Smoothie Bowl

Acai Smoothie Bowl We thought we would start off our nutrition blog by sharing one of our favourite recipes with you… We have tried to simplify our acai smoothie bowl recipe as much as possible considering the cost of all the extra ingredients, but feel free to get creative and add any of your favourite superfoods! We alternate between serving …
