We can’t believe it’s 2019 already! We’ll be continuing to share recipes this year, but what we’re even more excited about is that Michelle Harvey, a Nutritional Therapist, is going to guest blog throughout the year and help us to understand how some simple changes to our diet can have a huge impact on our well-being. Look out for her first blog article in the coming 10 days. We think you’re going to love her just as much as we do!
It’s been a while since we posted a recipe on our blog, but we’re back! This time with a delicious home made granola recipe, which is much better than any store bought granola that often contains added sugar, palm oil and non-gluten free grains. Once the granola is pre-prepared, it is very quick breakfast you can put in a jar and take with you to work or as a post-workout snack. In our jars, we’ve paired the homemade granola with apple compote and yoghurt, but you can get creative with just about any fruit! This time of year pears are some of our favorites, for instance.

It’s been a few weeks since we posted our last recipe and with the first day of school around the corner, we wanted to give you some ideas to start the year on a healthy and happy note.
So have you heard of the old wives’ tale that you should eat your colors? Then you’ll love these green pancakes!
Pancakes are traditionally thought of as an unhealthy breakfast, but these are actually gluten free, sugar free, dairy free and paleo. In addition, they are great way to get spinach into what is otherwise a “treat” type meal especially for kids. (more…)
If your kids are anything like ours, they’re always asking for muffins, but it’s not easy choosing a healthy recipe that they’ll still like.
Today’s apricot muffins are made with almond and coconut flour making them far more nutritious, but without compromising on taste. Win for mom and dad, win for the kids!
Instead of muffins, you could also bake this as a sweet loaf and enjoy with butter and jam in the morning. Either way, we’re sure you’re going to love it!
In Ramadan, we always try to do something special with our discovery boxes to celebrate the Holy Month. For those of you who are customers, we hope that you have been enjoying the extra nuts, seeds, and dried fruits! If you haven’t tried our discovery box yet, this is one of our favorite time of the year not only because of the extras, but also because stone fruit season has just started and that means lots of yummy fruits like cherries, plums, nectarines, and apricots.
Today’s smoothie bowl recipe is perfect for Suhoor or even if you’re not fasting something to keep you going for a little longer. In particular, coconut and Read More
With Ramadan fast approaching, we are committed to sharing as many recipes with you as possible. Whether you’re fasting or not, these recipes are easy to make ahead and fuel you for the day. Today’s recipe is a lemon and grapefruit curd, which is delicious on toast, hot cross buns, or even as a tart filing. Best of all, it is free of any refined sugar!
A word about grapefruit, admittedly it’s not the most popular fruit in our boxes, but it has so many health benefits it’s still important for us to include! To begin with, a grapefruit contains the average adult’s full daily vitamin C requirement. Several studies Read More
We’ve been a little quiet on our blog as we’ve been busy preparing for Ramadan! We have been working on the most beautiful Ramadan platters that are the perfect hostess gift for Iftar or a healthy dessert option if you’re planning a function at your house. Take a little sneak peak of one of our platters here.
Anyway, with the beauty of the Holy Month around the corner, we were inspired to include a healthy breakfast influenced by the flavors of Ramadan on our blog. Overnight oats with pistachio, rosewater and pitaya stained yoghurt is literally one of the most beautiful recipes we’ve ever featured, but what makes it extra special is Read More
Between Happiness Day, Mother’s Day, and end of term, it’s been another busy week here at Fruitful Day HQ! We’re looking forward to spending some extra time with the kids over the next couple of weeks and if we’re perfectly honest getting some extra hours of sleep too. These down periods are hugely important to building our immunity as we give our bodies a change to rest and recharge.
Our banana pancake recipe today is the perfect breakfast for after you’ve gotten your 7-8 hours of sleep!. It is simple, healthy and fun to make with the kids.
Generally speaking pancakes aren’t thought to be a ‘healthy’ breakfast, but by substituting a Read More
Hello February! This month we're focusing on foods that can help you boost your energy levels and keep you feeling strong and motivated throughout the month of February. Our first recipe of the month is an yoghurt, apple compote with homemade granola. Next time you’re eating what you might consider a ‘healthy’ breakfast, take a look at the ingredient list on your yoghurt tub and granola box. It’s likely you’ll find ingredients such as processed sweeteners (corn syrup, fructose), sugar, thickeners (xanthan gum, corn starch), artificial colors and flavors. Even the granola’s marketed as “healthy” will be predominantly grain based and will almost always contain sugar. These ingredients Read More
Last week, we launched detox January here and promised to share a new #fruityfriday recipe with you each week. This week we're continuing our focus on breakfast with a delicious and healthy recipe for chia pudding. Most of the work can be done the night before so it's ideal for those busy mornings before work and school. We love the idea of topping the chia pudding with different fruits each and every time to keep it fresh and interesting!
