TRIPLE CHOCOLATE COCONUT PANCAKES

TRIPLE CHOCOLATE COCONUT PANCAKES

Chocolate has to be my biggest weakness, especially when trying to lead a healthier lifestyle. Yes I can make raw brownies with cacao powder, and eat nibbles of dark chocolate. However place anything chocolatey in front me and it gets immediately devoured. My problem is self control, therefore I do not buy these sorts of foods for the house. Out of site out of mind. Yet I am currently at my nanas. What it is about grandparents wanting to fill you full of sugar? Even when your 25 they still…

KALE COURGETTE OMELETTE RECIPE

Last night I was whipping up some pudding that required only egg yolks. So not letting the whites go to waste I decided to cook up and tasty egg white kale courgette omelette. Recently I purchased some Kale powder from nutriseed which I have been dying to try. Kale is a great superfood, and can work wonders. However I struggle to cook with it. I did manage a tasty sweet potato hash. Otherwise I find the taste bitter and the texture gross. So I thought kale powder would be worth…

EAT GRUB BARS – REVIEW

EAT GRUB BARS – REVIEW

Grub bars are an all new sustainable protein packed bars, but with a difference. The thing that differentiates them from the rest and make them so high in protein is the fact they are made with cricket powder. Yes you heard right.

I mean they have such a high protein content, and are far more sustainable to herd than cattle. So I was a…
