Most vegetarians and vegans seem to have the whole #cleaneating thing down pat. But no fear if this isn’t you, just up the ante on your takeaway to help you reach your 5-a-day. Because summer bod, we’re coming for ya!
Roasted Vegetable Frittata
Vegetable soup may have been your soup of choice when temperatures were low. Now that you’re out of hibernation, why not get a roasted vegetable frittata instead? The low carb and high protein option is perfect for when the weather has you delayering.

No athleisure look is complete without a breakfast smoothie or green smoothie in hand and when it has super greens and spinach blended with fresh fruits like passionfruit, pear and banana, you might even mistake it for a fresh dessert.

Sweet Potato Fries
Just because the humble spud is your favourite vegetable ever (hello carb-that-is-also-a-vegetable!), doesn’t mean you should ignore it in other colours. When we feel like chips but want to do our bodies good, you’ll find us in the corner as we chow down on the crispy goodness of sweet potato fries.

Set aside chocolate cake, banana cake, and cheesecake for now and let’s talk about carrot cake. A cake that put the spotlight on a vegetable was only ever going to go one of two ways and thankfully, it went well. Does that mean you can have two slices because you’re trying to increase your vegetable intake? We think it’s a valid argument. Let us know how it goes.

Pumpkin Patch Pizza
Just cos you’re shredding for summer, there’s no need to sacrifice on the oh-so-glorious pizza. You could just order a side salad, but where’s the fun in that? This pumpkin patch pizza will make you long for more ‘salad’ with sweet roasted pumpkin, fresh baby spinach, red onions, capsicum and creamy feta.

Thai Green Curry
We all know how tasty Thai food is, with dishes like pad Thai and Thai beef salad. But we’re going to load up on our Thai green curry intake before it gets too hot to order a Thai green curry in 40+ temperatures.
