That time of year has rolled around again in Australia, where we start piling on the layers, pressing snooze for a little longer and start reaching for those comfort meals that keep us warm. Winter doesn’t mean that you need to stop eating healthy, but there’s nothing better than curling up with a hot cup of soup and getting warm from the inside out. With that in mind, I’ve put together some of my favourite Winter Warming Recipes so you can have your comfort, without the side of guilt. Anti-Inflammatory Coconut Fish Curry This speedy one pot curry is bursting with all of those delicious curry spices that we love, including our favourite anti-inflammatory turmeric and fennel! Dished up and on the table in 30 minutes, this winter-warmer is the perfect midweek dinner! Coconut Curry Pumpkin Soup This Coconut Curry Pumpkin Soup uses roasted pumpkin to add a sweet, depth of flavour. You might like to serve it with a slice of buttery, toasted sourdough. Banana Bread Breakfast Muggin This breakfast hack is the ultimate time saver. So, if you’ve slept through your alarm (and pressed snooze a few times more than usual), this two-minute banana bread in a mug is a tasty and super easy way to get back on track! Keep in mind that all microwaves are different! Keep and eye on it to make sure it doesn’t spill over and cook in increments if it is rising too much! If it is too liquidy, keep going in 30 second increments until cooked. Best Ever Skillet Lasagne is one of those dishes we often save for a special occasion, dreading the aftermath of dirty pots and pans spread from one end of the bench to the other. With seven hits of veg, this super healthy family favourite is the perfect solution to your midweek cooking dilemmas. Baked Rhubarb Oatmeal Easy gluten-free, sugar-free baked rhubarb oatmeal. Perfect for those cold winter mornings! Sticky Spiced Pear Crumble Congee This Sticky Spiced Pear Crumble Congee will send you back to toasty winter nights eating rice pudding by the fire! Pudding for breakfast? Yes please! We’ve teamed up naturally sweet coconut milk, cinnamon and pear to make a seriously filling brekkie without the sugar spike! Anti-inflammatory Hot Chocolate We’re slightly obsessed with turmeric and use it as much as possible, sprinkled on top roasted cauliflower, mashed through potatoes and stirred through scrambled eggs. So we’ve added it to a warm winter drink for an anti-inflammatory boost. Yum! Let me be the personal trainer in your pocket! G’day, Sam Wood here! Join me every day for a different 28 minute workout.
