Today I’m so excited to share with you one of my all time favourite, best of the best recipes. One that I make weekly and enjoy nearly everyday. It’s just so tasty, so simple and very nourishing. Last year and this year has been very busy – third year uni and building a house were not meant to be done at the same time but I made sure I always had my jar of granola filled and hey, I made it through! A tasty, healthy breakfast can help you achieve a lot of things.
Hi guys ❤ It’s been way, way too long since I’ve been able to have the time to write a blog post. It feels so nice and natural to be back at it again. Uni, moving/building house, ear operations etc have all taken over my life but if you have been following me on Instagram and Facebook you’ll know that I’ve still be cooking and creating.
Since it’s been a while here’s a little update on what Paradise Pantry and I have been up to ⇨
◇ Goodness Me Box recipe here (more to come)
◇ Made it through my first semester of third year Nutrition and Dietetics (by some miracle)
◇ Most of you will know from my social media posts but we had to say goodbye to our beautiful dog Blaze, he was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease which seemed to be getting better but in the end his little body just couldn’t cope we miss him terribly.
◇ Demolishing our block of land next week to build a duplex (surreal)
◇ Have become addicted to Calmer Sutra Tea’s new super spiced cacao and Outlander (show on Netflix, not the car)
◇ Cannot get enough of Earth and Baker’s amazing work, their bowl is used below
As the days are starting to have more of a chill in the air (which means 27 degrees on the Gold Coast) I start craving hot drinks early morning and in the afternoon. I adore my chai’s, hot chocolate’s and matcha latte’s but now a new drink has fast become part of my decision making process. The Turmeric Latte. Full of goodness, spices and flavour, what more could you want. You can feel the warming effects of the spices immediately.
At home its quite easy to eat well, but travelling and staying healthy is a whole other ball park.
I’m mostly referring to just the long car, train, bus, boat and plane trips. Once I’m at the destination all is good in the world. It’s the navigating & searching for wholesome, real food goodness on the plane, in the middle of an airport or service station that is the hard part (good luck).
My stomach can be quite sensitive to certain foods and I don’t like eating processed junk, so with a long haul flight to Canada coming up I started thinking about what I was going to eat to feel great to get my holiday off to a good start. I can’t think of anything worse than feeling bloated and have having abdominal cramps squished in a plane when I’m starting the holiday of a lifetime. And I’m sure many of you feel the same way so I wanted to share my travel snacks and tips that I stick to as much as possible.
