Travel Diary: The Whistling Frog Cafe

Sometimes there is nothing better than jumping in the car and going on a day trip somewhere. And now that we live in such a pretty part of the country, there are so many different and scenic places to explore. If you haven’t been to the Catlins before, then it really is a must do. The area is so picturesque…

How I Broke My Coffee Addiction

While I wouldn’t say I was coffee addict per se, it’s definitely something I used to have quite a lot of. I would enjoy 2-3 cups a day at my peak coffee drinking times, which I know isn’t much compared to some people (I used to know a guy who had 11 cups by lunchtime!). But caffeine does have quite…

Chocolate Bliss Balls That Are SO Easy!

For the past few months or so, the boyfriend and I have been very particular about what we are buying when we visit the supermarket. Instead of leaving with a trolley full of fizz, chips and chocolate, like we used to, we are only buying healthy foods. We’ve dropped a lot of snack foods from our diet and we no…

Dairy Free Chocolate Chip Cookies

Chocolate chip cookies are one of my favourite indulgences, and when I went dairy free I wanted to still be able to enjoy this delicious baked treat…. but without having to break my no dairy diet. I did a little looking around on the internet, but some recipes contained ingredients I either didn’t like (such as peanut butter), or ingredients…

Chai Protein: Masala Chai Review

Chai Lattes have been my go-to drink for years now, often so in the place of coffee. I love the spicy warm taste, and I could seriously drink a few of them in a day! I was quite excited to discover Chai Protein, a protein powder that tastes like a chai latte. It can be consumed hot or cold, so…

Changing My Diet and Dealing With Hormonal …

For the past couple of months I’ve been doing some trial and error with my diet. The reason for this initially was that I was always feeling heavy and bloated in the tummy, and my stomach would gurgle continuously. I knew there must be something in my diet that was causing this issue, as it hadn’t been happening forever, and…

The Best Berry Protein Smoothie

I’ve never been much of a breakfast person. I don’t really enjoy eating cereals and toast on a regular basis, and while I do love a cooked breakfast, that’s more of a weekend thing. For years I’d miss breakfast completely, and as a result I’d just end up eating filler foods like muesli bars or muffins mid-morning as I was…

Double Chocolate Oreo Truffles

These double chocolate Oreo truffles, are pretty much my idea of heaven. I love Oreos, and I love chocolate, so combining the two together, I knew was going to be good!  I adapted this recipe from this one for Easy Oreo Truffles, and just added my own twist to make them a whole lot sweeter. While this recipe isn’t something you’d…

GO Superfood Green Spirulina Tablets

For the past few months now I’ve been taking the GO Superfood Spirulina Tablets. I used to avoid spirulina at all costs as I’m really not a fan of the taste. I’ve always known how good spirulina is for us, so for a while there, I’d force myself include it in a smoothie and would absolutely hate every second while trying…

The BBQ Chicken Burger

Quite possibly one of the tastiest and easiest meals we’ve been enjoying lately are these BBQ Chicken Burgers. They take no more than 20 minutes to cook and they are a much healthier alternative to takeaway burgers.  Of course there are a million combinations for burgers, but this is the combo we are really loving at the moment. It’s quick,…
