Delicious Sugar Free Dessert: Cinnamon Peaches & Mascarpone

Just because you want to get in shape and eat well doesn't mean that you'll never have a delicious dessert cross your lips ever again. 

In fact, it can be the opposite!  Rediscovering some sugar-free, lower calorie desserts that aren't loaded with processed foods is a fun way to get inspired in the kitchen. 

These grilled peaches with mascarpone are something I tried out on my husband last night (he wasn't impressed with the idea because he's a salted caramel and chocolate fondant kind of guy, but then he tasted them and things turned around FAST - because they're so yummy.)

Skinny BBQ Recipes We Love

If you’re like me and you’re trying to create healthy food for your family as well as food that you actually look forward to eating then sometimes it feels like a struggle to balance tasty food with fat loss food.  My hubbie also loves a great British BBQ, but the sausages and steaks can be a bit of a healthy habits killer. Can you relate?To solve that problem we’ve rounded up our top easy BBQ and burger recipes that are fat loss friendly and that your whole family will enjoy.  Relish your meat dish with lots of green veggies or a salad or, if you’re already at your goal, add a nice wholemeal roll or roast sweet potato on the side.

Let’s bust a myth: You don’t need to be eating grilled chicken and greens ALL the time to stay fit and healthy.  

We don’t believe that your plate has to be boring or bland if you’re looking for easy weight loss. Instead, reaching your goals becomes easy when you truly enjoy your meal times! Eat like a queen, you’re worth it.

(Clients of Corio learn how they can eat all of the foods that they love, even chocolate and chips and still get amazing results - of course everything in moderation, right?)

How To Make Kale Pesto

Here’s what I love about making your own pesto. It’s fresh, it’s fast and it tastes like the bomb.  You can pop it onto kids pasta, or throw it onto a chicken breast and bake it, or whop it into a salad.

Since it’s not going to last as long as a store bought version I don’t tend to make a lot of these, however since my son was diagnosed as being allergic to dairy, I’ve had to make my own pesto to cut out the cheese. (This version isn’t dairy free though.)

In honesty, when I can I buy a nice store version to save time, but if you feeling oh-so-smug and want to enjoy kale (yes really.. or you can make this with spinach or parsley leaves) then here’s a great little recipe that’s a whizz in the blender.

Roast Mushrooms, Garlic, Thyme, and Tomato-Stuffed Peppers

Feeling like you need a hit of veggie goodness? This is a great little recipe that’s easy to make and goes as a delicious vegetarian side dish or flavorsome main. I like to add some protein to create a balanced meal, steak is good, or even some roast lamb, or seafood.

Ingredients:

  • 3 ripe Roma tomatoes
  • 3 large yellow bell peppers
  • 2 tbsp garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp fresh thyme leaves, chopped
  • 12 anchovy fillets

Egg-Free Higher Protein Breakfast Ideas

Want to know how to get enough protein for breakfast without eggs?  We’re sharing a few of our fave higher protein egg-free breakfast recipes so you can get your protein fix in a flash. One of the things that Rebelle clients transform over the 10 weeks they work with our coaches is how much protein they are getting. Most ‘normal’ people are eating protein in sufficient amounts but if you want to lose weight and keep your metabolism on overdrive then the chances are you need to up your intake to more than you’re used to.  

Why does protein rock?

The power of protein is pretty amazing if you’re a woman trying to lose weight.

Protein keeps you fuller for longer, wards off cravings and helps balance the hormones that cause fat storage. It helps regulate your blood sugar and gives your body the essential building blocks for a healthy amount of lean muscle that’s going to keep you looking toned and your metabolism revved.  It’s rarely stored as fat on the body and it burns a heck of a lot of calories just digesting protein.

#WTF is Detox Water and Does it Make You Skinny?

Detox water.  Seriously? We literally had no idea that was a thing until I was researching how to cure a hangover (because this weekend was my birthday and sometimes you need practical help not the smug “just don’t drink too much” advice...right?).

So what is detox water and will it make you lose weight?

Some health coaches and gurus will claim that detox water has cleansing and flushing properties that help rid your body of toxins and gunk which allows you to release fat faster.

Shredded Sesame Chicken and Cabbage Salad

Fed up of the same boring salads for lunch? If you want to keep things fresh without having to prep something new each time then it’s simple to batch cook some protein that can be added to any salad and create a huge bowl of chopped veggies.

You can simply grab a portion of salad, add a different lean protein and make it taste interesting with a variety of dressings.  With this in mind, I set out to beat nutritional boredom by trying something new this weekend.

I’ve never poached a chicken before but I had to road-test this Asian chicken cabbage salad recipe from Ching-He Huang’s ‘Eat Clean’ which I picked up to get some inspo while trying to healthify some of my Asian clients' diets.

How To Learn To Cook

You already know that eating good food is key to getting a body you love but you’re eating pizza, again... There’s nothing in the fridge and even if there was you don’t think you’d know what to do with it.

Sounds like you’ve got a case of the can’t cook won’t cooks, something Rebelle founder Elle Kealy suffered with herself for years until she realised her lack of confidence was affecting her figure and her family’s health. (If mom guilt + vanity isn’t enough to spur you into action we don’t know what will!).

Try on our can’t cook won’t cook mindset shift and solutions to help you get out of the rut.

Recipe: Cauliflower Couscous With Black Lentils and Heirloom Greens

We don't often post purely vegetarian foods up in our recipe section, simply because it's tricky to get enough protein for optimal fat loss results, so our own plates are a bit heavier on the fish and meat, but you can absolutely can lose body fat and sculpt a fantastic body you love eating plant-based foods.

In fact, we'll be sharing more variety in future because  we don't subscribe to one way of eating, we get it, it's individual, just like you.

(We now have the vegan option for all the women on our nutrition and lifestyle program, Rebelle too with tons of chef-created recipes and guides.)

Accidental Awesome Turkey Chilli

So I was digging around in an empty fridge (been doing that far too much lately!) and thought I'd whip up a turkey and bean chilli. Minus the crackers if you're doing the no processed foods thang....you can chuck extra veg into this chilli to make it as exciting as you like.

About halfway through I realised I'd made a fatal error, I was missing almost all the ingredients that are supposed to give this baby it's flavour!  (A recent use-by-date cleanse has cleaned out my spice draw. Duh.)

The Ugliest Recipe I've Ever Made

Happy Halloween! I thought today was a good day to share my ugliest recipe ever. (You might have guessed by now that I’m not known for my Pinterest-worthy culinary skills, I’m more about getting it done fast and efficiently and having food that tastes amazing AND helps your fat loss goals - to hell with food styling and spending hours taking pics for social media, we’ve got stuff to do, right?)

This recipe is a slight adaptation from one of the Hemsley and Hemsley recipes, of course in their book it looks picture perfect. In reality it’s just a big green mess… BUT…
