Hello friends, how was your weekend? It was a very warm spring weekend here in Sydney, and we got the first real taste of summer. I did some gardening on my little balcony - the herbs are growing fast and now there are even a few tiny tomatoes popping up!
Tempeh goes in the same category with tofu - people seem to either love it or hate it.
Happy Friday friends!
Week 5 of my sugar-free challenge is now well under way. I have certainly broken the habit of looking for that 'something sweet' after meals and found a heap of alternative ways to enjoy baked treats. Not even the fresh new-season mangoes can lure me in at this point!
I love the serenity of Sunday mornings. I am always up early, go for a long power walk, have a big breakfast and more often than not, prepare something to have later in the day for lunch or afternoon tea.
It's been a hectic weekend with lots of packing, organising, planning. Fun times, but exhausting as well. I had clearly been in denial of how much stuff we had actually managed to accumulate in 5 years.
On the weekend I picked up a huge selection of fresh vegetables and started experimenting with different combinations. It is so uplifting to see all the fresh produce, to touch it, to smell it and to taste it. The beautiful colours of these natural ingredients are the best inspiration one could hope for.
Firstly, thank you all for such supportive feedback on my sugar-free challenge!
The recent happenings (moving house, work, etc.) have made me realise why some people might find it so hard to stay on track with their healthy eating and exercise. As soon as life gets busy - you're travelling, working long hours or there is something new happening in your life, you start taking short-cuts and sacrifice your healthy routines.
Dear sweet old elegant lady at the park, I'm glad our paths crossed today.
Cue the trumpets! I am pleased to present (doot dee doot) breakfast quinoa ! I came across Joy’s recipe for breakfast quinoa this week in perfect timing.
Hi friends! As promised, here is a little recap of my sugar-free challenge (so far) - how it all started, how it went and how I am feeling now.
