You’ll be wanting to try these healthy recipes ASAP.
We’re coming off the back of Christmas, New Years, Australia Day and summer in general. We’ve all over-indulged and it’s now our mission to squeeze back in to those jeans from last year.
We want to be healthy (without cutting out all food groups) and we still want to enjoy mealtimes and getting creative in the kitchen.
So sure, salads and fruit and green smoothies will all be high on our grocery lists in the coming months – but that also just sounds plain boring (who wants to be munching on celery sticks for the rest of summer?) Nope, I’m out.
But I don’t want to be out, I want to be in – I want to kick-start some healthy habits without sacrificing my enjoyment of delicious food and drinks. I want you guys to be in this too.
So, I dug around and did a little research and discovered there are some delicious health food combos out there that you’ve probably never thought of, but will want to whip up right away.
So without further ado, here are some strange, amazing and delicious healthy food combinations that you never would’ve expected.

1. Vegemite and avocado.
This combination is simple but effective. It’s great to have for any of your three meals during the day (yep, it works for breakfast, lunch and dinner) and can also be a really solid filler in between meals to stop you snacking on bad things.
This combo is an absolute winner because it combines salty with creamy (and squeeze a little lemon on top and you’ve got zest in there as well).
I recommend putting the duo on a slice of multigrain bread. Avocado is a much healthier substitute for butter. Simply get your slice of bread (or toast) and spread a thin layer of Vegemite on the base. Then spread a healthy dose of avocado over the Vegemite. And if you’re feeling fun (and lemon is close by) squeeze a tad of lemon juice over the top.
Tangy, salty, creamy goodness.
2. Sparkling water and orange juice.
While we continue to be blessed with Australian sun and warm summer days we will continue to crave cold, refreshing drinks.
Fizz will always amp up a drink – seriously, fizz can turn the blandest of drinks into something you’ll want a whole jug of to yourself.
