Hi-Fibre Seed & Oat High Top Loaf

Hi-Fibre Seed & Oat High Top Loaf

It's August already! Where has the time gone?! It's been six weeks since moving house now, and we are hopefully inching closer to finding our own little house but for now, Isaac, Frankie and I are living with his parents. Frankie is so brave with their dog, Harper, a labradoodle. I hope they become best friends soon because it'd be so cute and it would make my life easier not having to monitor them together all the time!

Green Smoothie

I reckon I used to cringe big-time whenever I heard the words 'green smoothie'. Ummm no thank you, I do not want to drink a cold, savoury, thick and goopy beverage for breakfast. Breakfast is meant to HELP me get out of bed, not hinder me! I'll give myself credit though, I did persist everytime I went out or to a juice bar.
"I'll get the green smoothie, thanks"

This means you may be feeling a little less than fabulous perhaps having indulged on your holidays and attending more parties and get-to-togethers than usual.

Dukkah-Crusted Eggplant with Tabbouleh & Flat Bread

Dukkah-Crusted Eggplant with Tabbouleh & Flat Bread

One of my favourite ingredients since studying Ottoman cuisine has been dukkah. It's smoky, slightly spicy, crunchy and fragrant. It teams perfectly with anything from fish to chicken to veggies and I even love rolling boiled eggs into it or sprinkling some onto my hummus for extra flavour.

Red Lentil Soup

Red Lentil Soup

This week there's been a few weird-weather days here in Melbourne. Even though it's summer, we went through a bit of a rainy, cold-snap and I felt like nothing more than soup. However, because it is summer, I didn't have any of the usual suspects in my fridge, like celery, pumpkin or broccoli. Luckily, I had the right handful of ingredients to make this delish Turkish red lentil soup that I learnt to make last year.

Did you know that more than 3.8 million Australians skip lunch thinking they will get more done? But by 12pm blood sugar levels begin to drop leaving you feeling tired and having trouble concentrating.

Brunch with Mix Apparel

Nothing beats brunch on the weekend especially after a little exercise, it's such a relaxing way to ease into my days off after I've got my work out done and dusted. Before I workout, I always have a pre-workout snack and The Bar Counter is perfect. It's delicious, all natural and packed with nuts and dried fruit. Peanut butter is my absolute fave at the moment!

A Healthy Start to The New Year: Mix Apparel at Coles Supermarkets

A Healthy Start to The New Year: Mix Apparel at Coles Supermarkets

Happy new year everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful festive season and are getting back into the groove of healthy, balanced meals and a little more movement! I started my new year in Bali this year and it was absolute bliss. Think early(ish) mornings, long walks in the soft sand (great for your legs and pretty much like a foot exfoliation at the same time!), fresh smoothies for brekky, then a dip in the ocean, some beachside stretching and a walk back home. My go-to 'uniform' for my active routine has heavily featured the new Mix Apparel range now available at 740 Coles supermarkets nation-wide.
