Social distancing means that you can still go for walks outside!  Every morning we have been waking up early to go for a walk in nature and watch the sunrise. So much better than the usual commute to work everyday

Do you ever feel like someone is watching you when you are trying to eat!? Today's lunch is a cheesy (dairy-free) kale salad and boy does kale go well with cheesy flavours!  Recipe is from @goodeatings if you want to try it out.  Happy healthy Friday! . . . . #plantbased #kale #vegancheese #kalesalad #vegan #broccoli

Currently LOVING my fitness routine and 'kicking' it out of the park.  Here I was a couple of months ago getting bored and frustrated with the same old routine. That's when i decided to #changethingsup.  Since the end of 2019 I have been adding pilates into my workout routine and I must say it's a #gamechanger. Along with other forms of exercise such as weight training HIIT and tons of walking in between I am managing to exercise 5 days a week even with my busy schedule.  It's AWESOME…

Woke up this morning missing the "busy" streets of Mc Gregor wishing I could be back there right now instead of sitting in traffic on this manic Monday

This morning's homestyle rustic banana bread perfect for using those uneaten overripe bananas on your counter. Its GF SF too if that's your jam. I just love being able to use simple ingredients to create something so homey and delicious.  If you would like to recreate this try the recipe below:  1 cup chickpea flour 1/3 cup tapioca flour 1/4 cup banana flour 1/4 cup erythritol 4 very ripe bananas 1/3 cup coconut oil 2 eggs 1 tsp cinnamon 1 tsp baking powder 1 tsp baking soda 1 tsp vanilla…

Soaking up the last rays of sun since it's the last week of Feb and summer is almost over #lastweekofsummer  Last weekend we made it our aim to visit @springfieldestate again and this time we came prepared with a picnic in tow. They allow you to bring your own food and the wine tasting is free how awesome is that! Plus the wine is top quality. The only problem is that you just might be going home with cases upon cases of wine. . . . . #wine #winteasting #picnic #summer #springfieldestate…

Smoothie bowls are just a basic requirement for my breakfast these days and are especially good to beat the heat.  What's inside? Frozen banana Frozen Raspberries @wazoogles vanilla protein powder Almond milk  Blended and topped with almond butter and homemade granola. I always keep a batch of homemade granola on hand it's so much tastier than store bought.  . . . . #smoothie #smoothiebowl #healthybreakfast #granola #summerbowls #raspberry

Quite possibly one of the most beautiful days in Cape Town this year and there's no wind... yet.  I think I might be the only one who is loving this heat though  it's perfect weather for a morning walk and a breakfast run.

Balance in the form of food. Love filling my salad bowls with healthy carbs protein and fats it makes them filling and super yummy great for a post workout meal.  This salad bowl contains roasted sweet potato BBQ tempeh avocado tomatoes feta on a bed of spinach and rocket. Then drizzled with a lemon tahini dressing. . . . . #saladbowl #postworkoutmeal #healthyfood #tempeh #healthymeal

It's been 13 days since I quit coffee like what?! Who am I even?  Needless to say the withdrawal symptoms on the first 9 days were rough from a headache to extreme fatigue. However things are looking up I'm gaining my energy back.  Here's hoping that a break from coffee will lessen my anxiety. From now until further notice I will be sipping on some decaf to take the edge off. . . . . #coffee #quittingcoffee #coffeewithdrawal #caffeine #anxietyrelief

I was going to post a beautiful photo of a summer chickpea pasta salad today perfect for this summer heat but then I noticed that I could not find the photo anywhere! The other day I formatted my camera and backed everything up to Google Photos. As I was anxiously looking for my salad my photo I noticed that all my Bali photos had disappeared too!  So much for backing everything up! Fortunately this is one of the few photos that has survived on my device.  Anyone have any tips on how to find…
