Happy Monday to you! Every year, no matter where I am in the world, I make health-supportive Anzac cookies on Anzac Day… It’s my little nod to the spirits passed, all the beautiful souls who left this life unwillingly, as a by-product of fighting for Australia’s freedom. I’m not a huge fan of war and still live in hope that one day there will be peace on this beautiful, sacred earth… 🌏💗🏻️ Continue Reading…

Smoothie does it!

Indulging in my usual healthy breakfast, sipping slowly after a satisfying yoga practice. Both yoga and the smoothie set me up for a day full of energy and contentment which I’m going to need because it’s all about bread making and baking today at school!

I can’t wait to learn how to make immune supportive scones, pancakes, waffles and crepes, all items I would normally avoid because they are super hard to healthify without proper professional guidance and technique. I have lost count of how many times I have tasted, rock-hard, dense or chewy ‘healthy’ scones….ugh! Super excited for what today will bring.

Oh! And if you’re wanting to try what I’m drinking this morning, simply blend:

  • 1 cup coconut milk (healthy fats)
  • handful of spinach (nutrients, AKA, skin food!)
  • 1 tsp cinnamon (to stabilise blood sugar levels)
  • 1/2 cup blueberries (carbs)
  • 1tsp roobios tea leaves (vitamins, minerals)
  • 1/4 medium cucumber (hydration)
  • 1/4 cup firm tofu (protein)

Have a marvellous Monday friends :)
