Food is essential to our general well being…. It helps fuel our body and also fulfils our cravings.

What better way to start our day right by having the right food and nutrition for ourselves. Here, I will share three of my favourite recipes that are simple and easy to make. We will use simple ingredients to come up with these deliciousness that will leave you wanting for more.

Overnight Oats ala Home

You will need

  • A Jar or a Container with a lid (I usually recycle some old food jars for this)
  • ½ cup of Rolled Oats
  • 1 cup of Milk or Non-dairy milk (soy milk, almond milk etc)
  • 2-3 tsp of honey (depending on your sweetness preference, I prefer my overnight oats a little tart so I tend not to add too much honey)
  • 2-3 tbsp of yogurt (either plain or flavoured, when using flavoured, you may not need to add honey)
  • Nuts, roughly chopped (any sort of nuts that you prefer almonds, macadamia, walnuts etc)
  • Dried fruits (I usually use Cranberries because it’s always available in my kitchen but I find using green raisins super awesome. The raisins absorb the moisture from the milk and pops in your mouth when you eat it)
  • Seeds
  • Bananas, thinly sliced
  • Optional for some zing – Roughly chopped Chocolate bits or Peanut Butter or both

First, layer the oats at the base of the jar. Load the yogurt, honey, dried fruit, nuts and seeds. Lastly, top up with the milk. Adjust the milk portion a little more if your jar is bigger or if the contents looks a tad bit dry.

Give it a good swirl with the spoon and leave it in the fridge overnight.

It makes a great breakfast option which is super easy and healthy.

Tasty Tuna-Chickpea Sandwich

A great lunch time option that is filling and satisfying. Fortunately, no tuna was harmed in preparing this recipe.

You will need

  • 2 slices of Bread (Simple white bread or a fancy Sourdough, your options are bountiful. You might need more if you are famished)
  • A can of chickpeas (rinsed and drained)
  • 1 shallot (finely chopped)
  • 1 clove of garlic (finely chopped)
  • 3 tbsp of mayonnaise/vegan mayonnaise/tahini
  • 1 tbsp of Dijon mustard (optional)
  • 1 tsp of oil (or leave out the oil for an oil free version)
  • A sprinkle of herbs (tarragon and dill works. Or you can leave it out entirely)
  • A swish of lemon juice
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Salad leaves, tomato and cucumbers to line your sandwiches


  1. Drain and rinse the chickpeas. Add the chickpeas to a large bowl.
  2. With a fork or a potato masher, mash chickpeas. Then use a fork to mash chickpeas more finely. Tip: This step can take about 8 minutes to get a good mash. It’s worth taking the extra time to make sure the chickpeas are mashed well. The skins separating from the mashed chickpeas is what gives it a “tuna fish” type of texture.
  3. Once mashed, add all other ingredients and mix well. Adjust salt and pepper to taste.

Optional: Lightly toast bread. Place enough lettuce to cover a slice of bread. Smear a portion of chickpea tuna salad over lettuce. Top with tomatoes, cucumbers and your  bread.

Gobsmacking Avocado salad

I love salsa because of the avocados. The creamy rich texture of a ripe avocado really makes it so satisfying. I can have my salsa with almost about anything; as a side salad, in lettuce wraps or even over rice.

You will need

  • 1 ripe Avocado (diced)
  • ½ cup of cherry tomatoes (diced)
  • ½ stick of Japanese cucumber (diced)
  • 1 shallot finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tbsp of lemon or lime juice
  • ½ a bunch of Cilantro (optional)
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Now, for the fun part. Mix them all together and Voila, your meal is served.

The best part about this salad is that you can add in different items to have different textures. You can add crispy chickpeas, diced mango, olives, some feta cheese or even some grilled prawns or grilled chicken. The options are endless, just need a little bit of inspiration. Try them out and let me know what you think!
