AUSSIE LUNCHBOX WITH KRAUT AND FETA MEATBALLS
Fuelling the diet consistently with a variety of wholefoods will provide the right balance of nutrition for when we need it most and for all the challenges life presents us – big or small. For me, being prepared for the challenges in life means ensuring I have an abundance of nutrients available to me in every meal. In this yummy lunch box I’m going with…buckwheat bread, yellow capsicum, carrots, cucumber ribbons, steamed broccoli, apple, kimchi, beetroot hummus, kale and red cabbage slaw, heirloom tomatoes, avocado and pepitas, fresh herbs and beetroot. To top this all off, my kraut and feta meatballs to up the protein, iron and zinc from beef. Recipe awaits you…
