Tradie's Lunchbox

I made the intention from January 1 this year to do some form of exercise everyday (and so far so good on this one) and to eat more fresh food. I’ve done pretty well on this one too. But...
This easy curried brown rice salad has become one of my favourite salads for lunch because it’s got a lot of flavour and is very filling. One serve filled me up for lunch and I didn't add any extra...
If you're looking for a healthy, hearty salad, this Roast Pumpkin, Feta and Beetroot Quinoa Salad will not disappoint. I had a similar salad at Shingle Inn, which I shared with my mum, and it was delicious. It was very...
If you’re looking for something less salady for lunches, these sour cream quiche tortillas may be just what you’re after. They are so easy to make and are a versatile meal that can be flavoured how you want. I can’t...
This Spicy Chorizo, Tomato, Corn and Avocado Salad recipe is one of my favourite recipes so far for Tradie’s Lunchbox. It's a hearty vegetable salad that keeps beautifully. If you want to add some carbs, add a crusty bread...
If you want a healthy and filling lunch that uses up ingredients from your fridge, you will love these Beef, Vegetable and 2-minute Noodle Rice Paper Rolls. I was going to call these the Fridge Clean Out Rice Paper Rolls...
I love having soups in winter. They’re a great way to get more veggies into your diet and they can keep you warm on a cool day. If you’re looking for a soup that transports well in a thermos,...
This week for Tradie’s Lunchbox I have another salad recipe that is delicious, healthy and can be changed to suit your tastes. We hosted friends over for lunch on Sunday and I served this salad which went down a treat. I...
If you’ve been looking for an easy plate-to-share idea for Easter, you can’t go wrong with these Easter Meringue Nests. This no fail recipe isn’t really a recipe at all, because you just need to assemble the ingredients, and...
Milo and Maltesers Hot Chocolate... could there be anything more decadent? Probably. I've devoured many hot chocolates in my time, topped with cream, ice-cream, caramel sauce, chocolate fudge sauce, Tim Tams and now Maltesers. I came across this delicious treat...
If you've read this blog for a while, you will know that this isn't just a plumbing blog. It's a blog where I share my life and thoughts about all things related to tradies, construction, women working in male-dominant careers...
Whenever I share a salad recipe here, my dad sometimes gives me a dig, saying no one has time to chop up the food to make my recipes. And I understand, we're all pushed for time. But I know...
One of my favourite 4 ingredient recipes is a pumpkin, sour cream and sweet chilli sauce tart. It’s an easy recipe and always tastes delicious when I make it. So I thought I’d get a bit tricky in the...
If you’re looking for a fun baking gift idea, you must bakes these Wookie Cookie Gingerbread for Father’s Day. I cannot claim the creative genius for this – however, I did change the icing dots to silver cachous or as...
If you’re looking for a way to use up bulk Bolognese sauce, these Bolognese Sausage Rolls are a great way to do it. Whenever I make Spaghetti Bolognese, I try to make a double batch of the sauce, to freeze...
The last time I had two minute noodles was when I was pregnant (well actually I lie, I had them recently when devouring this two minute noodle salad recipe). I always had packs on stand-by for when the hunger pangs...
If you’ve recently bought plums and have found them to have no taste or to be a bit sour, you will love them in this Spiced Plum Cake. I recently bought a box of plums from Aldi so Jacob could...
Looking for a healthy and filling lunch idea that can be transported to work or out and about when with your kids? You’ll love these Easy Tuna Salad Lettuce Wraps. I had 2 in one sitting and I felt...
If you love lemon meringue pie, then you will really enjoy this easy mandarin meringue pie. I used a ‘cheat’ recipe to create it based on a Kidspot recipe. The whole family enjoyed this for dessert one night and...
When Esther was 6 months old, we headed to the Buderim Ginger Factory. We did a tour and had taste testings and finished our day with an ice cream in a cone. Jacob got a scoop of the gingerbread ice...
If you are in need of adding more greens to your diet after a bit of excess indulging over the holiday period, you will enjoy this Broccoli, Spinach and Pomegranate Salad. Broccoli is one of my favourite green vegetables to...
If you’re looking for a salad that’s a little different, you need to try my Tangelo, Brie and Spinach Salad. A week ago, when I did my grocery shopping, Woolworths had tangelos in their citrus fruit section. Being adventurous, I...
