chocolate mousse

I have always seen people post about healthy chocolate mousse and every time I do I make a mental note to try it myself! It has taken me a while but today I finally got around to making it. There seemed to be two key ingredients in all of the recipes I have seen around, […]

chocolate coconut roughs

These are one of the first things I ever made with coconut oil, it’s the perfect ingredient because it melts down to help mix all your ingredients together and then when chilled it solidifies and holds everything in place. These are the perfect little chocolate treat to curve your cravings without the guilt. I choose […]

traditional chinese medicine

If you follow me on instagram, you probably already know I’m having issues with my back at the moment. I have managed to quite badly sprain some ligaments in the top of my back/right shoulder. At first I was unsure how I had done this to myself, but then in talking with the physio I […]

out of action

Sorry for the repost of an old photo but I’m definitely not in a photogenic state right now – I am currently hauled up in bed (in my trusty onesie) with a heat pack and some pain killers. I’m not sure how I have done this to myself but I think I have managed to […]

banana oat and raisin cookies

Personally I find these to be the perfect warm treats in winter, they taste like a charming, chewy cookie version of cinnamon porridge that’s been topped with banana, raisins and a drizzle of maple syrup. This recipe has been based of the ‘two ingredient banana and oat cookies’ that are floating around at the moment. […]

Now as patriotic as these cookies might be, they’re also just generally delicious so I make them even when its […]

last friday night

When it comes to a social life… I don’t really have one. I would prefer to spend my Saturday night at home watching the lastest ep of criminal minds than at some club, listening to average music with sore feet because a friend convinced me to wear heels. No thank you. However smaller gatherings, catch […]

breaking up with bread

Bread. I have such a love hate relationship with bread that its not even funny. Since starting my new healthy, and usually low carb life style, I have been doing really well to wake up every morning and fight the urge for some fresh bread with butter or my trusty old friend, vegemite toast. However […]

watermelon, pineapple and strawberry granita

If you’re from Melbourne, like me, you’ll know that when it comes to the weather you can experience up to all four season in one day. The weather is so unpredictable people say that ‘if you don’t like the weather, just wait 5 minutes’, this couldn’t be more true. Yesterday was horrid, raining non stop, […]
