Healthy recipe of the week

Yes, another glorious week has yet again arrived rather quickly. My weekend was quite interesting, I went to a lecture on re connective healing and volunteered to have it done to me. I must say it was quite a strange sensation, I lay on a massage table, eyes closed, while the teacher held her hands over me, I felt like electricity was running through my body, it was quite amazing. This healing technique is meant to aid in healing ailments you might have and has been said to have fixed bad backs, depression and even addiction. I wonder if it will fix anything for me? I'll let you know if it does.

This weeks healthy recipe is one from my favourite healthy Australian Chef, Teresa Cutter. If you like the meal suggestion, be sure to check out her website at the bottom of the post for many more healthy meal ideas :)


185 g (6 ½  oz) tin tuna in spring water, drained
1 egg
1 spring onion (scallion), sliced

Combine the tuna, egg and spring onion, then season with freshly ground black pepper.
a non-stick frying pan over medium heat and spray lightly with a little olive oil.
spoonfuls of the tuna mixture into the pan and cook for 3 minutes each side, or until golden and cooked through.
with a green salad or steamed green vegetables drizzled with a little lemon and cold pressed olive oil.
