Butternut pumpkin pasta has long been a staple during the winter months and despite the visuals that spring to mind (Mmmm butter!) this is not a sauce-heavy pasta. In fact, the thing we love most about this dish is that it’s so damn tasty you don’t even miss all that sauce! The whole wheat flavour of the pasta balances perfectly with the roasted pumpkin and salty overtones of cheese, making this meal absolutely delicious! So here it is, check out Naturally Ella’s recipe for an easy prep weeknight pasta featuring savoury roasted pumpkin with butter, parmesan, walnuts, and rosemary.
After a long day at work, crafting a healthy meal may not sound exciting, but realistically, this is when we need quality nutrition the most. Energy levels and stress hormones should be taken care of through a proper, nourishing dinner and the good news is, it doesn’t need to be tricky. So, thanks to Sami Bloom, we have some great tips and tricks to save you time in the kitchen, making sure that by 7pm you aren’t reaching for fast food delivery apps or just settling for toast.
With the weather cooling down, it’s time for us to add some winter favourites to our menu.

Need a hot drink? Our new Fireball elixir is designed to be the ultimate immunity building and flu preventative, fully equipped with antibacterial properties. Read on for a detailed look into all the winter warmers AVAILABLE NOW in all Cali cafes.
Baby it’s cold outside!!! And we don’t know about you guys, but when it’s cold we crave the hallmark of fast food establishments… burgers, fries and soft drinks. But, as our trio below proves, they don’t have to be greasy, filled with cheap ingredients and loaded with sugar! Yep, that goes for the ‘fizzy drink’ as well. Tell you more? Check out this Wholesome Cook recipe that is living proof that burgers, chippies and soft drinks don’t have to be all junky.
With the chilly winter weather on the way, for all of us comes the risk of those unwelcome coughs, head colds and the dreaded flu.

We all lead extremely busy lives and for so many health reasons, breakfast is one of the most important meals of our day. However, brekky can become particularly tricky if you’re trying to be healthy and /or cutting back on sugar, wheat and dairy etc. So when it comes to finding healthy (but still very delicious) brekky substitutes, we decided to put our heads together and compile a summarised list (because we all love a summary) of the breakfasts we should consistently eat to give us loads of energy, help us keep a balanced diet and enable us to feel strong and ready to take on the day, every day…
