Good Morning Sunshine Smoothie

A hug and a kiss in a mason jar x My love of smoothies came from living with an amazingly inspirational woman in Sydney a while back. I had never been very confident in smoothie making until Sam made me a delicious post swim smoothie on a super hot afternoon in Rose Bay. She whizzed it up in no time…

Quinoa Oaty Bars

If you have a sweet tooth and you are looking for a healthy alternative to those pesky processed packets of rubbish that line our supermarkets then you’ve come to the right place! I wanted to recreate a bar that I had the pleasure of sampling at a cake sale many years ago – I remember they were half flapjack and…

Green crackers

This recipe was invented off the back of a gruelling detox programme that I embarked upon with my friend last week. It was specifically designed to clear the body of stored toxins, chelating and excreting heavy metals from the system. The first bit of the detox was fine because it wasn’t dissimilar to what I already ate. It was dairy free,…

Kale and Coconut Chips

Eating a healthy whole food diet means that I don’t eat processed foods (in the form of shop bought packaged goods). Not because I am depriving myself of these things but because I genuinely don’t see the point in eating them and I much prefer to make my own variations at home. As I mentioned in a previous post, I…

Paleo Chocolate Orange Pancakes

HAPPY PANCAKE DAY Yes. Before you ask, there is such a thing as healthy pancakes and what can I say, chocolate pancakes are a little slice of light, fluffy heaven. They only contain 4 ingredients and are super quick to make. I usually make these little treats at the weekend. Saturdays are my absolute favourite of days. I always wake…

Coconut oil

So coconut oil is pretty much the height of fashion at the moment, its probably over taken kale in the world of the health nuts. (Personally I like the two combined – see my recipe for Kale chips) But anyway that’s another story, lets focus on the coconut oil here guys. Coconut oil has so many fantastic health benefits. Its…

The best breakfast smoothie

I know I should make more time for breakfast in the mornings, and its something I am constantly working on. It features in my new years resolutions annually however most of the time the warm surrounds of my bed are way more appealing than poaching eggs at 6.30am. But hey ho we can’t be perfect all of the time and…

Happy mornings

A healthy morning routine makes your day awesome! I always believe that if the start of your day is good then the rest will be too right?   Smile and take a moment to think about who and what you are grateful for.  A moment of gratitude can really start your day off in a positive way. Start your day…

Super Maca Granola

  After spending goodness knows how much on expensive cereals from health shops {gluten free, paleo, sugar free, organic etc etc, you name it, i’ve bought it} I decided it was about time I created a recipe for my own breakfast cereal that was all of the above and for half of the price. Despite the lack of pretty packaging…
