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...

Jaffa Pro Balls

The only prep I did yesterday was these and also another variety (even better than the last one) of chia pudding. It's been hot here in Auckland today, and I did the 12:15 class at F45 One Tree Hill, then grabbed some more organic produce from Huckleberry at Royal Oak. Plus our new vege garden arrived today! We decided on a vegepod, which we got online, you can have a peek here. We opted for the large size, with a stand...however, because the garden will end up weighing around 400kgs, we need to level some grass and pave it so the garden doesn't sink into the ground! So a work in progress that I'll keep you posted on... So these balls...ummmm...amazing....

Baked Kumara + Avo Salsa

Officially day 1 of the F45 8 week challenge and this was dinner. I have to admit, I am struggling with the no sugar thing. My mind is seriously foggy, and energy levels pretty low this afternoon, although they did pick up a little when I saw Stella's face at home time after school! If you are planning on dropping sugar, it's good to know what to expect in terms of withdrawal symptoms...heres a link to go into a bit more depth. You realise how brutal it is on your system when you're coming off it! The Pro Ball I pre-made yesterday and had this afternoon was totally welcome! You can find the sugar-free recipe for them here. Now, I...
