MY SUPER COOL IDEA ~ WHATTA YA THINK?



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.

THE TASTIEST + QUICKEST BREAKFAST EVER!!



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!

OVERWHELM :: FIND YOUR FLOW AGAIN (VIDEO)



So I’ve been in California now for 2 weeks and it feels like we’ve been here a month!

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).

HOT CROSS BUNS :: MY FAVOURITE RECIPES FROM FOOD BLOGGERS


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.

EASTER SPECIAL: CLEANSE PACKAGE


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 -

NOURISH: CREAMY CHOCOALTE, COCONUT + AVO BOWL



This is a favourite of mine for a few reasons:

~ The simplicity of it. 5 ingredients. Perhaps 1 or 2 additions. But essentially, 5 ingredients and you're good to go.

~ The 'mouth feel'. I use this term when there is an epic combination of flavour, texture and temperature for me... and a thick, creamy, cold bowl like this is spot on (it's still freaking hot in the tropics at the moment)!

~ And... I could say thirdly that it's full of amazing healthy fats and ingredients our body will love and use as fuel (which it is)... but really... food is way more about making us (and our taste buds) feeel good, over the nutritional content am I right? ;)

So let's cut straight to it then.

NOURISH :: ALMOND + BLUEBERRY MUFFINS



If you're like me and have a super duper hectic week filled with amazing things that all come with deadlines, then meal prep is going to be your best friend. Yesterday I brewed a big pot of bone broth, a slow cooked beef tritip stew, cut up veggies ready to go, and I was going to make these as well, but being back in Cairns after 2 months on the road (where everywhere else on the coast seemed to go in and out of rain and cooler temps) it's freaking HOT! So I'm keeping baking to a minimum in the heat.

So these babies were instead whipped up at 6am this morning, and baked whilst I walked down to see the sunrise, and back up in time to pull these out. Then I did my morning workout and sweated an insane amount, and one of these teamed with a smoothie was my breakfast.
