Spelt flour is packed with nutrients, vitamins, minerals and essential organic compounds which wheat does not contain. It is higher in fiber and protein than other wheat grains and contains less gluten than regular flour meaning it is easier for some to digest. Continue reading “DAIRY FREE SPELT HOT CROSS BUNS “
After spending 2 weeks in Spain and getting pretty good at Spanish (and committing to a $8.99 app to learn it) I was disappointed that I liked Portugal even more and that their languages were completely different. Portugal was just beautiful. Everything about it. The people. The food. The beautiful coastline and small cities/towns. The first time I went we visited Porto and Lisbon and most recently last year we got a camper van and drove the entire coast line from Faro to Porto and beyond.

My first European ski experience and just wow. Sorry Australia but your 15 meter long slopes just don’t compare to the 15 minute long ones in Chamonix and the French Alps. We got a cheap flight to Geneva from London although let me just stop there as I won’t be mentioning the word ‘cheap’ again. A ski holiday is not cheap. The French Alps are not cheap. But it was so fun that my bank account can take the hit for the amazing 4 days we had… one aperol spritz at a time.
The other day I caught myself out by saying “oooo if you are feeling sick eat white foods… they are apparently good for your immune system” and then followed by listing off all of the white coloured foods I could think of… Onion, garlic, mushrooms, leeks, cauliflower… and then I stopped realising that I had only ‘heard’ this once and had NO IDEA why or if it was true.
So here is the dirt behind why certain food colours mean certain things to our body and why.
WHITE = IMMUNITY (beta-glucans); Immune system. Ok so I was right here. White foods activate our natural killer cells and reduce cancer risk whilst strengthening our immune systems
RED = HEART (lycopene); improves heart and blood health, supports joints and increases circulation.
ORANGE = VISION (beta-carotene); boosts eye and skin health and may decrease your risk of developing cancer
YELLOW = BEAUTY (carotenoids); stimulates digestion and promotes collagen growth for radiant youthful skin and strong bones
BLUE/PURPLE = AGING (anthocyanins); powerful healing antioxidants for retinal health and vision, assisting with healthy aging and improving memory
GREEN = DETOXING (chlorophyll); powerful detoxers, improves oxygenation and normalises digestion
So now when mum says “eat your greens” you can turn around and say “but what about my reds and whites too?”
Copenhagen, the capital of Denmark, has got to be one of my favourite cities. Known for its amazing architecture and insane Nordic food culture, it clearly won my heart. So here is my 48 hours in Copenhagen guide. Get to it…
Forget the diamonds, jewels, fine dining, champagne and red roses… Valentine’s day is all about the CHOCOLATE and lots of it. If there is one thing you should all know about me – the way to my heart is all about the food. Strawberries coated in dark chocolate, decadent slices, choc-raspberry tarts and cheesecakes or any cake for that matter oozing with chocolatey goodness.

If there is something that is growing as popular as chicks with abs at the moment – it’s BRUNCH!! The saying has been around for ages but the foodie industry and independent cafes have grabbed ‘brunch’ by the reins and taken it to a whole new level. Out with the separate breakfast and lunch menus and in with smashed avocado and poachies on toast at 2pm, actually even 8pm in London. Speaking of which, smashed avocado seems to trump (bad time to say Trump?) all menus and be the most demanded go to. So here are my top 5 smashed avo’s in London. Get your bum down to them and try them out. Continue reading “BEST SMASHED AVO IN LONDON”
Rainy saturday afternoon and a pile of brown spotty bananas can only mean one thing. Banana bread! Oh and also today is apparently the most depressing day of the year aka ‘Blue Monday’ therefore I thought it was a perfect time to post a warming happy recipe. Continue reading “PROTEIN BANANA BREAD”
Now as much as I love my meat and couldn’t be a vegetarian (slash don’t want to because I love chicken and steak) I respect and find a big place in this world for vegetarians. The ongoing issue with being vegetarian is that they don’t eat enough protein and tend to eat white carbs and cheese constantly. One of my mates recently decided to go vegetarian and my best friend is also vegetarian so I thought I would research into it and create some high protein meal plans that don’t consist of tofu tofu and tofu.
