New Leaf Nutrition Chicken Satay

You guys KNOW I love to create healthier versions of YUMMY meals, and this one is a ripper!

Who doesn’t love Chicken Satay?!

I don’t even understand anyone who doesn’t!

Anywho- this recipe is actually from WELL OVER a DECADE ago! (oh my how time flies!)

Way back when Healthy Food Guide Australia was BRAND NEW, I was an AVID subscriber and collected EVERY.SINGLE.ISSUE

I had them all stacked neatly in date order in gorgeous magazine holders and I just LOVED flicking through them to get some new inspiration for the weeks ahead meals (I used to meal plan every SUNDAY with my super simple, yet effective Meal Planner template- if you’d like a copy hit me up at [email protected])

I had this recipe typed up for clients so that they too could enjoy its deliciousness- and BOY did they love it!

One client loved it SO much it featured at her engagement party!

So don’t for a moment doubt how WORTH the (teeny tiny!) effort it will be 🙂

I actually adjusted this slightly as the original had the satay sauce as a separate dipping sauce. I prefer to marinate the chicken with the peanut butter in the marinade AND that way I don’t need to use the oyster or sweet chilli sauces (nothing wrong with them- I just prefer my food and recipes to be as clean and whole as possible!)

If you would like a copy of the original recipe to keep the sauce separated as a dipping sauce, please email me and request it- more than happy to oblige! I’ve tried searching it on the HFG website but can only find different Satay Chicken recipes.

But here for you is my version (tried, tested and TRIPLE approved by myself and my man!)

New Leaf Nutrition Chicken Satay

(Serves 4)

Throw these skewers onto the barbeque and the sweet, spicy smoke will make everyone ravenously hungry. Only costs $4.15 per serve and takes 15 minutes to make

You will need:

  • 500g chicken breasts, skinless (I used Organic, Free-Range from Sunshine Coast Organic Meats)
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce (I used Tamari)
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil (I didn’t actually use any oil)
  • 1 tablespoon limejuice
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1 tablespoon organic peanut butter – 100% peanuts – no added nasties!
  • Pinch of cayenne pepper
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • Lime wedges


  1. Soak 16 bamboo skewers in water to prevent burning (I didn’t bother to thread onto skewers- just pan-fried in strips)
  2. Cut the chicken into 16 slices, about 1cm wide
  3. Lay on a board, cover with plastic and bash lightly to flatten (I didn’t bother with this!)
  4. Mix the soy sauce with the oil, lime juice, ground spices, peanut butter and garlic and garlic
  5. Coat the chicken in the spicy marinade and leave for 30 minutes
  6. Heat up the grill or barbeque
  7. Thread the chicken onto the skewers
  8. Grill or barbeque for 2 minutes on each side or until cooked through
  9. Serve with vegetables, brown and lime wedges 🙂

**For Tim’s lunches I simply microwaved a flavoured rice pack from Aldi, plus some mixed frozen veg from Woolies and BAM! In no time, his lunches were served!

For my own lunches – I sauteed a LARGE serve of mixed greens, placed these on a bed of salad and topped with the satay chicken 🙂

New Leaf Nutrition 30 day New Year Challenge

Written by Bridget on . Posted in Food and Health Education

OK guys!

We did this last year and it was BRILLIANT!

I have been inspired to run another 30 Day New Year Challenge, this time slightly differently!

I am going to give you some guidelines to follow covering nutrition, movement and mindset at the outset, and each and every day I will be coaching you to fulfil each of these!

Following the New Leaf Nutrition guidelines based on the FUNdamentals I teach my clients may lead to the following “side effects”:

  • Massively improved energy
  • Oodles of inspiration
  • High doses of positivity
  • A renewed enthusiasm for healthy food
  • Crystal clear clarity
  • A remission of confusion
  • Effortless weight loss
  • A reduction in aches and pains
  • Improved digestion
  • Up-regulated metabolism
  • Enhanced immunity
  • A quashing of stress levels
  • Inflated sense of humour
  • Fortified confidence
  • Clearer, younger looking skin
  • Better bowel habits
  • and SO MUCH MORE!

Each day I will inspire you to make choices and take actions that naturally, easily and effortlessly lead to a happier, healthier YOU!

More importantly this will set up a fail-safe foundation for not only your happiest, healthiest 2019, it will also offer you a sustainable foundation for LIFE!

The key to any plan working is consistency- but of course consistently repeating the WRONG/NON-IDEAL habits is NOT the answer!

Professional guidance and accountability and will enable consistent implementation of the RIGHT/IDEAL habits!


Too much information, too many changes and too much expectation can lead to inaction, overwhelm and yet another “failed” attempt to pursue your goals.

This challenge will involve zero pressure or guilt trips- just loads of inspiration, education & encouragement!

Many of you know that I was an overweight, unfit and bullied child (see here if you don’t believe me!).

None of this healthy lifestyle stuff came naturally to me.

I was ADDICTED to donuts, fresh bread, pasta, lollies and anything sweet or bread/pastry-based!

I HATED sport and was a committed book-worm, couch-potato.

I had to TEACH myself how to LOVE healthy habits.

How to make healthy food YUM.

How to ENJOY moving my body.

For me it was actually so much fun!

I loved learning how to love this lifestyle!

And after years of watching others struggle through endless diets, fads and programs, it became my passion to teach others how to do this the FUN and SUSTAINABLE way…

26 years later I’m still going strong, loving the lifestyle more than ever and many of my clients have also fallen in love with and adopted this way of living.

Ultimately it comes down to a handful of unsexy habits, repeated daily, or at least frequently.

And that’s what I want to show you, and walk you through.

I will be your daily coach reminding you of what to do to stay on track, to stay true to yourself, to FINALLY achieve those pesky health goals you’ve been wanting to reach for so, so long!

This year though I’m turning up the dial with more specific guidelines right from the outset!

The goal is to tick off as many of these guidelines as possible EACH and EVERY day for 30 days to achieve your specific health, energy, happiness and weight loss goals!

You will know EXACTLY what to do EACH and EVERY DAY to work towards the BEST, most shiny and vibrant version of YOU in just 30 days!

So! Are you ready??

Are you ready to START 2019 RIGHT?

To be shown an EASY, EFFECTIVE and ENJOYABLE strategy for the health goals you want to achieve?

If so, REGISTER BELOW and choose your option!

We start pre-work TOMORROW and dive in to the actual challenge MONDAY 7th January!


  1. 30 Day Challenge
  2. 30 Day Challenge + one 1:1 30 minute session
  3. 30 Day Challenge + two 1:1 30 minute sessions

Included in the challenge:

✔️Private Facebook group where daily tasks will be posted

-I will tell you exactly WHAT to do, WHY and HOW. No guessing. No feeling LOST. Just EASY, step by step guidance on implementing healthy lifestyle habits that will transform how you FEEL, and positively affect how you LOOK

✔️Extra resources for inspiration, information, ideas, education

-Recipes, videos, tutorials, websites, ideas etc that you can use/access to help you make positive changes

✔️Access to me through the group to ask questions, seek encouragement/clarity

-It’s SO frustrating not being able to have your questions answered. No more feeling alone! I will be there to walk you through step by step and you will also have the support of others in the challenge 🙂

The extra 1:1s give you a more personalised plan.

My standard 1:1 coaching is only available in 3-4 month programs and costs $999 a month, so this is an exclusive and INCREDIBLY economical opportunity to get some 1:1 advice. This will NOT be available after the challenge.

Regardless of the 1:1 support, the base challenge is INVALUABLE and I know will get you rolling on the right track for 2019, and IF you are up for it, for LIFE!

So, choose what feels right for you and LETS GO!

See you on the inside!

New Year Challenge

For as little as $1 a day you can be feeling CLEAR, INSPIRED, ENERGETIC, HAPPY and HEALTHY!

I CANNOT WAIT to share this journey with you!!

Lotsa love!
