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...

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....

Vanilla Protein Chia Pudding

Happy Sunday and day 7 of the challenge. What a week! I've had a glorious day, a walk in Cornwall Park this morning, a chillax at home with Stella and Jasper, to then make my way over to the Auckland Vegan Food Festival on the North Shore. I spoke at 11 this morning and there was such a great turnout. A beautiful sunny day, and miles and miles of insane vegan food...of which I didn't eat. But because I was on my pre and post buzz of speaking, I don't feel like much. So sticking to the plan was easy. I spoke about how to be a happy vegan...more on that in another post.  But for now, here's a good...
