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.
I promised I would put the recipe up for this colourful bowl, so voila! I for one am definitely gravitating towards salads and raw foods now the Gold Coast is in the middle of summer. These falafels are ridiculously easy too make and so versatile they make regular appearances in my kitchen.
I love the addition of millet (or quinoa) in these to help break up the chickpea-ness. It stops them from being too dense, plus you get some complex carbs into your meal too.
When I want an iced chocolate I want the real deal. Actual chocolate. Made from cacao beans. None of this sugary syrup stuff. And I personally like mine made with almond milk. This iced chocolate as simple as it is, is pretty hard to find. But don’t despair because you can make it for yourself >> healthier, yummier and cheaper.
