I must admit that breakfast is my favourite meal of the day. When people tell me they don’t eat breakfast I honestly can’t understand why. To me breakfast is super important! It sets me up for the day. Even on weekdays when I don’t have that much time in the… Continue reading »

Cardamon, cinnamon and coconut porridge with maple syrup and figs

Cardamon, cinnamon and coconut porridge

Porridge has been my go to breakfast this winter. There’s nothing better than a warming bowl of goodness on a cold morning.

Raw cherry ripe balls

Raw cherry ripe balls

This was my second attempt ever at making chocolate from scratch. The first time was about a year ago and I failed miserably. For some reason the mixture split, I may have over blended it. This time was a bit better and I am very happy with the result. I have… Continue reading »

Bircher muesli with coconut yogurt and strawberries

Bircher muesli with coconut yogurt and strawberries

I’ve had an obsession with oats and coconut yogurt in the last few months. Porridge was my go to breakfast during the winter months. But it’s getting warm now in Australia which means I’ve started craving cold foods. So what else can I do with oats? Well, bircher muesli (or… Continue reading »
