Warm Chia Pudding

Warm Chia Pudding

The chia pudding. Hands down, my all time favourite breakfast. I have to stop myself ordering it when I'm out for breakfast since I eat it so much at home. I love the blank canvas of it, and the ease of it. It goes with any flavour at all, any topping. The texture allows you to add all sorts of different things to it, although some don't like the texture. I don't really understand that but we're all different!

I do miss my chia puddings in the Winter. I have them occasionally but I prefer warming dishes in Winter -...

Winter breakfasts can be challenging when you are not only gluten free but also intolerant to starches. So even gluten free grains are out. Yes that's right. No quinoa, no amaranth, no millet, sorghum. I have been in utter denial about buckwheat though. It's the one gluten free grain that I love however with the recent cold weather here in Melbourne I did have a week of buckwheat porridge for breakfast each day and felt the affects. So I had no choice, I had to start coming up with alternatives for a warming breakfast. 

Because I do believe that we...

The lid on my food processor broke. Completely. I picked it up after being washed and it fell apart.

I checked my receipt and yes I am in warranty! I rang the company and no I don't have to go back to where I bought it from, since the photos I sent showed the lid would be covered under warranty and if I check my emails in about 15 minutes I will have all the details I need to return the broken lid and a new one will be sent out to me. Great! How long does this...


Blueberry Chia Pudding

Blueberry Chia Pudding

 

 

This is my favourite breakfast by far! 

I love the ease, the versatility, the goodness of a chia pudding. I’ve made it with water, with almond milk, with coconut milk, with freshly squeezed tangelo juice. I’ve flavoured it with vanilla, activated charcoal, crushed raspberries, mesquite powder, cacao, Butterfly Pea tea, turmeric, blue algae and peanut butter. I’ve made multi coloured chia puddings, hot chia puddings, and topped my chia puddings with smoothies. If you have seen my Instagram account, the chia pudding makes a regular appearance! There are so many possibilities, you are...


My Favourite Smoothie

My Favourite Smoothie

There are so many different and wonderful smoothie recipes out there.

And sometimes if you (meaning me!) make a smoothie by just throwing it all in together it’s hit and miss whether the combination works.

This is my go to smoothie.

As long as I use all the ingredients, it generally doesn’t matter the quantities and it never fails. The only time this has failed was when I forgot the bananas. Ok, that has actually happened a couple of times. And a couple of other times I have poured the smoothie into the...
