Turmeric Chai Bliss Balls + Happy New Year

Hello there,  I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and relaxing holiday season.  I love this time of year between Christmas and New Year, where everyone seems to take a big sigh after the Christmas festivities and life seems to slow down to normal pace again. In our house we have completely lost track of what day f the week it is and are just letting our days unfold without any planning, which is an enjoyable novelty. The number one offering for guests dropping into our place at this time of year are my Turmeric Chai Bliss Balls. I love these little morsels, not only...

Raw Matcha and Peppermint Chocolate Crunch

Hello there, Ah, finally I am back in the kitchen creating again (very much my happy place). It feels like such a long time since I've posted a recipe but life just got really busy for a while. You may have seen over on Facebook that my youngest little love India (now nearly 22 months) started daycare 2 days a week very recently. For the first time since she was born I now have a window without a child being by my side 24/7. As much as I treasured this time, I now feel I can breathe again and finally start to climb my mountain of 'things to...

12 Immunity Boosters That Will Keep You Healthy This Winter

Hello Lovely Friend,  You may have noticed I've been a bit absent on the blog recently, I've been enjoying some time out with my family and had wee break in Byron Bay and Bali. I had limited internet on my travels (largely by circumstance) and I actually enjoyed the much needed mini technology break. I wrote about immunity boosters a few weeks ago - ironically my 2 little ones got sick in Bali, so boosting immunity has become even more of a priority in our house.  If you live in the Southern Hemisphere like I do, you're no doubt enduring the chillier temperatures and shorter days (which thankfully are now getting longer)....

How Blue And Purple Foods Can Transform Your Health

Hello Lovely Friend,   "Eat your greens". It’s probably something we have all heard many times growing up. Without a doubt green foods are wonderfully nourishing for our bodies; they are nutrient dense and excellent for alkalizing the body (read more about  alkalizing in a previous article  here  and  green algaes here )……BUT did you know about the incredible health benefits of blue and purple foods?                          Last month I came down with flu like symptoms and my whole body ached. The thought of getting sick made me see red….and...

December Newsletter - Christmas Bliss Balls, Gifts, Health Tips, Specials + More

December is a great month to... Recharge your energy this silly season!December can be a fun filled month of socialising, Christmas parties and entertaining. It can also be a month where we get pulled in many directions, finishing the working year, trying to fit in Christmas shopping, catching up with loved ones, as well juggling the demands of day to day life. All of these factors can be a drain on our energy. In our house with a new baby in tow we are doing less of socialising than usual, but plenty of juggling. The combination of a bit more stress, a little less sleep...

Drink Your Greens

So who likes to eat a big bowl of spinach and wild weeds? Yes, I do enjoy a good salad most nights, but sometimes, just sometimes, I can't face a bowl of greens. So whats the alternative? Drink them instead! I've been experimenting with putting loads of fresh young greens in my smoothies (just seasonal fruit and whatever 'superfoods' I feel like putting in). And I reckon its the easiest, tastiest way of getting your greens. The most nutrient dense too, as the greens are raw. My kids will drink it too, as it just tastes like fruit and has...
