Smokey Tempeh + Cauli Rice Bowl

Day 20! I spoke to a couple of the other girls at F45 this morning who are doing the challenge, and we all agreed that this week has felt a bit more meh than the first 2. I think it's because we are getting familiar with the changes, so there's not such a dramatic difference in how we feel. I'm sure this will improve, given we all stay on track and focused.  This was lunch today, which I shared the process on my instagram stories, and it really is my fave way to have tempeh. Marinated for around 10 mins and fried off nice and crispy in a hot pan...here's what you'll need. Recipe for 1... 2 cups cauliflower rice,...

Hemp Freedom Breakfast Bowl

I was going to bring you guys the recipe for my lunch today - a curried chickpea nourish bowl - but I actually can't stop thinking about this so here it is. I've named it freedom cos it's free of so much, but instead of lacking, it's a giver! Sugar free, grain free, gluten free, wheat free, guilt free...but full of so much. Essential fats, protein, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants if you add some dark berries on top. I generally let it soak for around 15 minutes before enjoying it, you could leave it overnight, just add a little more liquid so it's not too thick. Recipe per serve... 2 TBS hemp hearts, I got mine from good for store...

Enjoy your weekend! Sx Recipe for 1 4 slices of beetroot. I peeled a medium sized beet, and sliced into rounds about .5...

Hi beauties!  So, we are well into 2019 now...and something I haven't told you...I'm addicted to F45! More specifically, F45 One Tree Hill, which is my local branch. I've been going sold for around 7 weeks now, and tomorrow is the start of their 8 week challenge. I've signed up. Eeeeeek! This one is the first time they've introduced vegan meal plans, which is super exciting, and I'll certainly be drawing inspo from it. Today, I made these Pro Balls. The recipe makes 5, one per day as a morning or afternoon snack from tomorrow onwards. It's adapted from one of their recipes, but I've made it my own with a few tweaks and additions (hello orange essential oil!). So,...
