Having followed WhiskingIt and all it’s yummy recipes through my bestie Lexi I am so excited to have been invited to be part of this delicious blog! As Lexi has mentioned before I will be focusing on the sweeter side of life (deserts, pastries, cookies, donuts, brownies, tortes, pancakes, cakes, cupcakes…. we could be here all day), hopefully showing you that just because it’s sweet doesn’t mean it’s unhealthy!

Chicken & Kale Root Veg Pie

Chicken-Superfood-Pie-06

One thing I LOVE, love love love is a good PIE. I love cottage pie, pastry pie, pot pie, fold-overs, tarts, pies that aren’t even really pies at all… And I swear, if you put your mind to it, you can spin any traditional favourite into a healthy dish. That’s what I tried here. Good old chicken pie turned SUPER >> a super-food pie!!

Summer Ginger Carrot Oats

Written by , Posted in Breakfast

Gluten-free-carrot-cake-oats-01

So, as you may have noticed my last 2 posts haven’t been paleo. I have indeed started introducing a couple of the healthy grains back into my lifestyle, partially because I saw a dietician that recommended having gluten-free oats, quinoa, wild/brown rice and some rye in order to help with some stomach issues I have been having… Anyhoo, oats are one of my favouritest things in the whole world. Adding stuff, experimenting with flavours, nuts, dark choc, fruits, spices. Mmmm.. Never ending possibilities!! This combination was kind of born out of one of those “what-can-I-do-with-these-2-sad-things-left-in-my-fridge” moments.

FRIDAY-FAVES

FRIDAY FAVES ARE BACK!!! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! I have missed posting my favourite pins of the week, it’s just so fun staring at mouth-watering-sticky-sweet-delicious-salty-healthy-whatevery foodie pics on a Friday afternoon! So I will be making a concerted effort to post weekly re-capping my best pins from Pinterest from the previous week. Cause. You know. My pass time between 9:15 and 9:30pm to wind down before sleepy time is to pin the heck out of my Pinterest feed – till the point that my phone is scaldingly hot and my face has a screen-tan. It’s a thing. I swear.

Paleo Protein Bars

Written by , Posted in Snacks

Paleo-Protein-Bars-04

Word on the street is that people should have protein within the 30 minutes straight after a weights workout. It helps with muscle recovery and ensure you don’t end up injured do to tearing over-worked muscles that didn’t get the nutrients they need to recover! During a workout you end up creating “micro tears” in your muscles (apparently) and taking protein directly after a heavy workout just immediately starts sending the hormones, enzymes, cellular messengers, nucleic acids, and immune-system components that your muscles need to recover! :)
