NOURISH: YOGI BEAR CHOC NUT BUTTER SLICE


This is seriously the perfect afternoon combo of chewy + crunchy + chocolatey + sweet to go with your cuppa... whilst there being very little sweetness in here at all.

I love a piece of slice. I'll take slice over cake any day. Over cupcakes. A cookie though... ooooh we might have a draw. It's gotta be a chewy cookie though. So this slice will not disappoint. You've got the chewy crumbly base layer. You've got the smooth creamy middle. And of course the chocolate on top. Which you can play with - make it a thick layer to ooze richness and texture. Or keep it thin for more crunch.

Slice the lot and freeze, 'cause I think it tastes best coming straight out of the freezer this way.

Enjoy!


BASE


3/4 cup almonds
3/4 cup quinoa flakes
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp psyllium husks
5 Tbsp melted butter
2 Tbsp almond butter

In a food processor, bliss the almonds and quinoa flakes until crumbly. Add the rest and blitz til combined. Press into a lined loaf tin and bake at 180 degrees for 25 minutes.
Allow to cool.

MIDDLE


1/2 cup cashew butter
2 Tbsp coconut oil
1 Tbsp maple syrup

Combine all in a saucepan, warming enough to stir together until well combined. Pour this over the cooled base layer. Chill in the fridge til firm.

CHOCCIE TOP


1/3 cup coconut oil
1/3 cup cacao butter
2/3 cup cacao powder
1/3 cup maple syrup

Melt coconut oil and cacao butter, then whisk in cacao powder and maple til combined. Pour over the middle layer and refrigerate til set.

WINTER WELLNESS USING ESSENTIAL OILS



It seems that Winter has arrived in full force making the entire east coast of Australia a chilly ice box over night this week! And just as quickly I've heard so many people say they've got the sniffles or a cough, or the kids are unwell, Aunty June got the flu, the kids are off school today, the list goes on.
So without a little for-thought, and preventative health support, we might be the next ones.

I did a live video last week in my ✨Good Vibes Oily Tribe Facebook Group ✨and thought I'd share what I spoke about here as this information can benefit anyone and be used by anyone, for Winter Wellness prevention before the lurgies set in.

THE MAGIC ✨ OF THE DOTERRA CONVENTION AUS/NZ 2019


If there's a time to take your health into your own hands, like reeeeeally start living from a place where YOU and confident in looking after your own health with tools, resources and products at your fingertips and IN YOUR OWN HOME, the time is now.

I've just come back from the doTERRA Australia/New Zealand Convention and it's taken me a good week to really find the time and space to digest what it was. And beside incredible oils obviously, for me, my biggest memories when I close my eyes and think about it, are Community. Connection. Soul sisters. Friendships. Human spirit. Rising against adversity. Standing up for health. Freedom of choice. Empowerment. Positivity. And knowing I'm in the right place, doing what I believe in.

If you haven't already seen my Convention highlights on my Instagram go check it out coz you'll see all the fun there in under a few minutes! But for ease and quick reading I'm going to dot point all my highlights, learnings, and BIG things here for you as well. So without further adieu...

IMMUNE SUPPORTIVE SUPPLEMENTS : MY CURRENT FAVOURITES


I woke up the other week and didn’t feel the best ever. Taj had a runny nose and had been clingier and feeding off me more than usual, and two work mates also told me they didn’t feel so good... so perhaps something was going round (and sleeping half the night in Tajs bed didn’t help either). 

So, as soon as I got up feeling wrecked I whipped out a bunch of my current fav's for the season. And this is my apothecary for the few days that followed:

REACH FOR MAMA NATURES MEDICINES FIRST



Specifically, ESSENTIAL OILS ✨

Friends, you know I love these. I use them daily. They are my skincare, my cleaning products, my digestive support, my sleep support, my happy-liver perfumes, my this-mama-needs-a-break support...
They are Taj's cooling aid when his temp gets high, his calming and grounding support when his emotions are all over the place, his comfort and his skin soothing for cuts, scrapes, bites and bruises.

And they are all non-toxic. Safe. Powerful. Mama Natures medicines.

OPERATION : NO CAFFEINATED COFFEE



About a month ago I posted this in my Instagram stories with loads of private replies, so I then posted it in my feed, again with loads of comments, and promised to write a post on how it was all going - the no coffee thing and what I was replacing it with.

Now the reason behind this was because there was a period of a few weeks where Taj's sleep was rough as guts and I wasn't coping the best ever. So instead of my decaf I asked B to make me his (regular, organic, caffeinated) coffee one morning (still Bulletproof style of course). And oh-my-holy-diggity-dang it was soooooo delicious! So it crept in daily again, and then maybe a second one (straight up black or iced) at lunch time... and it took me a while to notice it but two things happened:
