If you've been following me on Instagram and Snapchat, you already likely know that I LOVE finding epic snacks when I travel. It still amuses my partner ~ I've worked in health food shops for 5 or 6 years and am still a kid in a lolly shop when I see one! I walk on in, love seeing what brands are stocked, try and find new things I haven't tried, chat to the staff and check out the interior design! Call me crazy! But y'all know I travel to eat! And thus the inspiration for this vlog post.

It's no secret I like to travel. But you may not know that I am also very much a creature of habit. I love routine. I love structure. I love similarities. But, I also love travel, and travel with my partner is typically off-the-cuff and spontaneous, whilst also always being incredibly serendipidous, its ridiculous. And it has definitely taught me to be less of a control freak.
However, I also know that if I don't work out in the morning, by midday I'm one cranky bitch to be around. And lucky for me my man loves movement just as much as I do so it happens daily. The only thing is, in a new city it can be hard on a control freak to find her groove.

I HAVE A SUPER COOL IDEA!! And I want to share it with you and see what you think of it!
My time over here in California so far has been nothing short of epic, however I'd be lying if I said I didn't feel a little unsettled at times ~ feeling unease, uncertainty, confusion and overwhelm as I try to sit with not knowing what it is I would love to do everyday if money and time were no option.

Lately I've been hooked on protein pancakes and protein waffles (which are essentially the same thing with a minor ingredient tweak, although waffles can look so much prettier when plating up!)
I think it's the cooler mornings here than the heat I am used too back in Cairns, as to why my regular smoothie has taken a hit, and waffles have become my morning go-to.
Now, what I wanted to let you know here is HOW QUICK and EASY these are to make. If you've made my protein pancake recipe, you'll know how simple it is. However, you do have to wait for it to cook, and then flip it, all up cooking for 10-15 minutes sometimes. With waffles though, they are good to go in less than 3-4 minutes. Which if you're rushing in the mornings, or have cranky hungry kids to feed pronto, this is a godsend!

I absolutely love it here, but as an A-Type with mild OCD, control issues and who operates mostly from logic... I'd be lying if I said it's all been smooth sailing and rainbow watching (although we have seen a rainbow. And it was after being rained on. Yep. Even in California!).
So after 14 days of ups and downs, I think I've finally worked out my flow. What I need to stay sane and happy. And thought, why not share it with you, as these can work for anyone, anywhere (not just crazy Aussies finding their way around LA).

If you're anything like me, when it comes to cooking, baking and creating any particular "special occasion food", you do it last minute. You know and are fully aware that said special occasion is approaching, nearing and almost here... and that along with it comes that special-occasion-food you love, but you still manage to actually put two and two together and go "Let's create a recipe a week early". Nup. It's just not how you roll. So it's last minute, you've got to work around public holiday shop closes, an just follow someone else's recipe, coz hey... You know it already works.
Hot Cross Buns.

It's nearly here!!! I usually love Easter as it's an excuse to go see my family, however this year I won't be venturing south to see them as I've had, and continue to have, many trips planned this year that I can't really do another right now.
But that's ok. I'll see them all soon enough - I digress -
