Bangin’ Chicken




1/3 cup coconut oil (or ghee)
1/2 kg chicken thighs, chopped

2 rashers bacon, diced

1 red onion, diced
6 garlic cloves, crushed
1 capsicum, chopped

good handful of baby spinach
1 tbsp cumin powder
1/2 tsp cinnamon powder
1/4 tsp ginger powder
1/4 tsp cloves powder
1/4 tsp cardamon powder
Juice 1 lemon
1/2 tsp salt

Heat up the oil in a large frying pan that has a lid over a medium heat. If you don’t have a lid you can use a sheet of alfoil to act like one. Add the chicken, bacon, garlic, onion and salt and allow to brown. Add all the remaining ingredients, aside from the capsicum & spinach and mix well. Cover, reduce the heat to low and allow to cook for 20 mins, stirring occasionally. Add the capsicum & spinach, stir though and allow to cook uncovered for another 5 mins before serving.

You could substitute the chicken thighs for some pork or beef too if you prefer.

I have a passion for pure, unadulterated food; food that is good for the body and the soul, food that makes you feel good from the inside out.

It’s my goal to help people to get comfortable again in the kitchen through cooking classes, workshops and easy recipes and empower people to take back control of their own health, starting with food. Did you know we are now one of the fattest nations on Earth?
I want to help create a nation of people who are nourishing themselves and their families so that they can thrive not just survive and that start with the concept of JERF- Just Eat Real Food.

Every time you eat is an opportunity to nourish your body. 
Let’s be honest though, some days adulting is hard and you really have neither the time nor the inclination to go getting all “Masterchef” in the kitchen and you’re fresh out of fermented-sprouted-activated- supercharged-unicorn dust to rustle up any kind of magical super food extravaganzas.
I get it and I want to help you nourish the little (and big) bodies in your life with as little fuss and as much nutritional bang for your buck as possible because eating healthy food doesn’t need to be time-consuming or expensive and it absolutely doesn’t require always incorporating the latest super food on the market. It all starts with real food. The stuff you find at the fruit shop, or the butcher, or the fish market. The stuff that doesn’t come packaged with an ingredient list a foot long. You know, that stuff that your great grandparents would recognise as food? That’s the stuff that makes you feel good from the inside out and when it comes to fuelling all the bodies in our lives we all want them to feel and be the best they can and that starts with food. Here’s a couple of my favourite go-to recipes when I need minimum fuss but maximum taste & nourishment.
