Nutritional guidance & personal training with mentored support from Lisa Michele
As a university professor I hopefully keep my students awake and avoid the definition proffered by WH Auden that: ‘A professor is someone who talks in someone else’s sleep.’ Jokes aside, it is increasingly recognised that sleep is a major issue in today’s 24/7 society where it is estimated that up to half of the […]
So creamy yet so healthy and satisfying. Like most fish, Basa fish is high in protein, low fat and a good source of Omega-3. It is recommended to consume fish 2-3 times a week with similar consumption linked to reduced risk of heart disease, stroke and bowel cancer. Serves 2-3 Ingredients: 2-3 fish fillets of […]
Who doesn’t love Mexican? Here is a simple and healthy burrito recipe full of colourful veggies, protein and complex carbohydrates. Developed by CSIRO and given the 5-star health rating, BARLEYmax wraps are high in fibre, low GI, aid in digestion and may reduce the risk of certain chronic diseases such as obesity, diabetes, and some […]
Are you feeling blah? Feeling like nothing tastes good? Can’t get motivated to make a start with exercise or healthy eating? Are you taking the easy route and relying on go-to take-away? Are you struggling to get into a solid exercise regime? I am sure we can all relate to this in some way or […]

Oats are an excellent source of complex carbohydrates, thiamine, iron, and dietary fibre. Serves 1 Ingredients: ½ cup rolled oats ½ cup milk (of choice) or water […]
A sweet snack or dessert option. Cottage cheese has a high content of casein protein (a longer-lasting protein), while being relatively low in fat. Apples and Pear are good sources of fibre, vitamin C and various antioxidants. Cinnamon is known to have numerous health benefits including a high antioxidant content, anti-inflammatory properties and the ability to lower blood sugar levels, and […]
A creation from my hubby (the king of flavours) – a low-carb/ high protein hearty Bolognese. The zoodles add great texture and you will not even miss the pasta. Zucchini are low in calories (approximately 17 calories per 100 g) and contains significant folate, potassium and provitamin A. Serves 4 Ingredients: 500g grass fed lean […]
The best creation- smoothie in a bowl. Amazing on a hot day and so many endless variations only limited by your imagination. Fresh fruits are generally high in fibre, water and vitamin C. Regular consumption is associated with reduced risks of several diseases. Serves 1 Ingredients: ½ frozen banana (peel before freezing) 1 cup ice […]
