Here I have put together an absolute banger for you - Tomato Mussels and Baked Whole Snapper.

Here I have put together an absolute banger for you - Tomato Mussels and Baked Whole Snapper. It's super-healthy, super-easy and in fact quite affordable to make given this type of meal would probably cost you about $60-70 at a seafood restaurant. Here, you can make it at home for about $35.

Veggie Omelette

Eggs and breakfast! It's a combination that men salivate over and rightly so. Not only do eggs cooked any way taste the tits, they are little protein powerhouses that in my humble opinion, are one of the healthiest, most nutritious foods you can eat!

And that makes sense right? The purpose of an egg is produce a chicken so all of the good stuff contained within that shell must be sufficient to create a new life!

Healthy Apple Oats

I am a dessertasarus! This is someone that loves and mows down any dessert within eyeshot. As such, I go on the front foot and try to prepare healthy desserts before I am tempted by the sugar-filled ones.

This one here is an example - Healthy Apple Oats. 

There is ZERO added sugar in this recipe so all that you are getting is that from the apples. The flavour comes when the apples stew and are combined with two of my favourite spices and a splash of vanilla extract. 

When I enter the chill zone at night and sip on herbal tea, this is the perfect accompaniment. A dollop of low-fat yoghurt and your night ends on a very content note!

Salt and Vinegar Roasted Chickpeas

When you have nothing at the ready and a hunger kicks in, you snack right? The problem is that often for blokes trying to manage their weight, it's their snacks that let them down. They grab for quick convenient foods often not knowing that they are high sugar, high fat and thus high calorie. 

With a little bit of preparation however, you can prepare excellent snacks at home and take them to work so you have them ready when the hunger kicks in. These Salt and Vinegar Roasted Chickpeas are an example of that.

Home-Made Hummus + Pita Wraps

When I am sitting down to a Sunday beer or just relaxing with mates, I've got a go-to snack that the lads love. They're happy to rip me about it - "Jase, mate let's just gets some chips or some crackers and cheese"

But when I blend up this simple, little dip and throw it on the table with some pita bread and green olives, the troops dive in!

Home-Made Nut Granola

As we come into summer, we start to move away from hot breakfasts. I always find my hunger drops when it's hot and that's the main reason I tend to be leanest at that festive end of the year! That's despite the beers!

So rather than egg-based breakfasts, I love moving toward cold options like chia bowls or granola and yoghurt. Yet the issue is that many commercial options are loaded with refined sugar and are not that healthy. 

With that in mind, I've put together an awesome, tasty and simple Home-Made Nut Granola recipe just in time for summer.

Banana Pancakes

If you like pancakes, this recipe is your friend. It makes delicious, tender and fluffy pancakes and takes only minutes to make. 

My favourite topping is a drizzle of maple syrup and a tonne of sliced strawberries. And if you want to get fancy, a sprinkle of muesli, coconut and cacao sends the taste and sexiness through the roof.

Easy Green Smoothie

Smoothie's have become the rage for healthy types but are they really healthy? Well, the short answer is 'yes' but it is absolutely conditional on how you make them. Firstly, the primary ingredients of your smoothie need to be vegetables. Veggies contain loads of fibre, vitamins and water and not much sugar. As such, they are not as calorie-dense as smoothies based on fruit. 

Second, you need to make the smoothie up on a low-calorie liquid like coconut water or even plain water. Adding juices or full-cream milk will send the caloric density through the roof. Of course there will be plenty of nutrition in the smoothie but from a caloric point of view, you may as well be drinking Coke.

San Choi Bau

Here's a real favourite of mine! Super-cheap, quick and easy to make. The perfect Thursday night meal. 

But instead of the fat-laden Chinese fried style, try my healthy san choy bau recipe. It's messy, juicy and will spill over the place. But when you start munching it down, happy days will be upon you!

Seafood Marinara

This is a Sunday special and will go down a treat with a glass of wine! I've substituted regular white pasta with black bean spaghetti which is loads higher in protein and fibre. I love the texture of bean pastas and I've got to say, the black pasta looks delicious when served with a tomato sauce. Try this one tonight!

Baked Salmon and Stir Fry Green

If you live in a small apartment, cooking fish can be a pain in the butt. It’ll leave your house smelling like a co-op and your clothes smelling even worse!

Baking salmon instead of grilling it on the hotplate is the answer. No smoke, no smells, grand taste!

BUT, remember this little tip! Once the fillet is cooked evenly through at about 180-200 degrees (usually 12-15 mins), flick the knob around to grill on high. After two mins, flip the fillet over and give it the same time on the reverse side. This will both crisp up the skin and brown off the fillet and the result is delicious!

Pink fish like salmon and trout is super-high in Omega-3 healthy heart fats and lean protein. Whether you’re looking to pack on muscle or trim down on body fat, salmon with either a summer salad or some wintery veggies is the perfect plan!
