    Travelling healthy

      So I’m currently at Melbourne airport, on my way to Wellington from Perth. Now as a food and nutrition blogger I feel compelled to say something about the quality of food when travelling. I feel like my only option is some form of bread and coffee. I took the liberty of packing a few snacks, and I’m lucky I did! I packed: Raw almonds A mint luvju bar from living earth Pukka tea Green is good smoothie packs from the green smoothie co A lemon macadamia superfood bar from simply raw But I decided to try the plane food. Big mistake. I chose the vegetarian stir fry, which shouldn’t…

    Product review: Conscious Craves Kale chips

    Finally home! There’s really nothing like getting back home and having your happy little dog greet you like he hasn’t seen you in months, its the most lovely feeling 🙂 Of course getting back home, I had loads to do, so before doing so I made sure I had a nutrient dense power snack-bring on the kale chips! I got these bad boys from the Margaret River Farmers markets from the lovely Kylie from Conscious Craves. They are flavorsome and super crunchy, and she uses a blend of Cashews, sesame seeds, garlic, tahini and spices to pack them with a punch. Plus kale is full of vitamins and minerals, which…

    Samudra Review

The cafe was warm and friendly, with impeccable service by the wait staff, we got…

    Raw Cooking Class

    I have had the most fabulous time in Margaret River, if you ever get the chance to visit, it’s such a beautiful place! While I was on the winery tour, I was talking to our guide Jaime about my blog, nutrition and wellness, and he mentioned that they had just hired a new driver, who was an ex-raw chef at Samudra! What are the chances that he was running a raw cooking class the next day! Of course, I instantly signed up, and on Sunday I attended a truly incredible raw cooking class run by the amazing Brad Sawatzki from Harmonious eating. Brad is a talented chef, educator and passionate…

    Harvest Tours Margaret river

    Good Morning! I have been in Margaret River for a week now, and I have been really enjoying being on holiday. Here, the pace is so much slower than in Perth. The people are friendlier, the town is quaint, its peaceful, and everyone knows each other. Currently, I’m staying in Gracetown which is about a 20 minutes drive from Margaret River town. There are probably a few hundred people living here, and its just perfect. We are a stones throw away from some amazing beaches-unfortunately its a little too cold to swim at the moment. One of the main things I wanted to do while I was here, is go…
