I’m a BIG breakfast fan. As an early riser I seriously enjoy preparing myself a strong cup of tea and a healthy and delicious breaky to fuel my day. My favourite dishes include either eggs or a fruit, yoghurt and nut combo.
Sweet, savoury, healthy or indulgent. Be sure to start the day with your favourite flavours using one of my easy recipes.
I’m a bit boring when it comes to porridge. I like to top mine with sea salt, brown sugar and banana. In that exact order.
Today, however, I’ve branched out. I’ve made a flavour combo I’ve been wanting to try for a long time – but can never get past my old standby favourites. (more…)

Is it just me or has everyone gone smoothie mad?
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not having a go at them/you, I love a good smoothie as much as the next chick. It just seems like the blogosphere has erupted with smoothie recipes left, right and centre.
I’m not imagining it. Am I?
Anyway, bring it on people. Or should I say, whizz it up people. And yes, do include all the latest trendy super foods like kale and chia seeds, so they can become more mainstream and we can all glow and glow and glow with health…
Hang on, I’m off track. Let’s chat about this smoothie. (more…)
Since we moved up North, hubby and I have been working from home.
It’s not too bad as we have a two storey house so the office is upstairs away from the action. As in, excited toddlers and noisy vacuum cleaners, kind of action.
I wouldn’t say we love working from home. There’s something wonderful about both the quietness and sociability of being in an office that we both love. And we intend to get it back, just as soon as we find a house we’d like to buy. Then we’ll set up an office nearby. Hopefully bicycle riding distance.
One thing we do love about working from home is… lunch. More specifically, freshly prepared lunch. Lunch that is tailored to exactly what we are feeling like at that moment, not whatever we hastily jumbled together in a morning rush.
Hot, cold, crunchy, soft, spicy, creamy – they’re all possible. (more…)
Do you go through phases with breakfast? I do.
Sometimes I’ll eat muesli for weeks on end, or porridge every day in winter, or soft boiled egg on toast until I run out of eggs.
Not my hubby. He would eat cereal every day of his life if it wasn’t for me offering up different delights. Oh, I lie. He did change it up a few days a week in his late teens when he ate pop tarts. Remember those? Gross. (more…)
On the weekend I posted a picture of my breakfast on Instagram. It was muesli topped with banana, yoghurt and lots of blueberries.
I captioned it:
“I’m right in the middle of a blueberry obsession with no end in sight”.
And I meant it.
I am totally gaga for these beautiful blue orbs at the moment. Mostly due to the fact that I can buy them in buckets at the farmers market in Byron Bay. As my father in law would say, it’s fan-tas-ma-gor-ical! (Made-up word).
I can eat them to my heart’s content every day and only just run out by the end of the week – when I can buy them again at the market. (more…)
