Endurance Berry Chia Pudding

Day 14 is here! It's a quarter way through this epic journey of self love and improvement and I've never felt better. Plus my photo is in the paper today, here's the link if you'd like to check it out. Photo cred Jason Oxenham - NZ Herald It's relating to injuries from F45 and I'm happy to be the voice to defend it. My main message is that common sense prevails. People need to go at their own pace when starting anything new and listen to their bodies. Anyway, back to this chia pudding! I've use go good endurance booster blend, which is so fab as it has psyllium husk in there, not only for added fibre, but for extra...

10 minute Satay Tofu

This week is going way faster than last week. I can't believe it's Friday already! So for lunch today I wanted no fuss, and of course, as tasty and fast as possible. I grabbed a bag of cauliflower rice at the supermarket (basically just cauliflower that's been blitzed to a rice texture in a food processor), and I thought I'd give this dish a whirl...whilst timing myself! I realise that most people doing the F45 8 week challenge will be in an office job, or have a work destination that they need to be at each day. So not everybody has the luxury of working from home and whipping things up. This could literally be done in the morning, or the night...

New Season Baby Perlas Potato Curry Bowl

Day 11 I felt like a little comfort food for dinner tonight, and I love nothing more than a curry. Combined with new season Perlas potatoes, it's a dream! Letting go of my chip and fry addiction during this challenge has been pretty easy, but I still love potatoes for clean vege source of energy and sustenance, as well as extra vitamin C. This curry is really simple, and as an everyday family meal, it would be amazing with some hot quinoa or basmati on the side. Recipe for 3 serves 1 white onion, finely sliced 3 garlic cloves, finely diced 2 cups chopped Wilcox baby Perlas potatoes 1 cup green beans, ends removed, and chopped in half ½ cup...

Curry Kale Chips

Day 9...and another stunner here in Auckland! Really not wanting Summer to end... I got hold of a 2nd hand dehydrator last week and I just knew that these were going to be the first creation to come out of it. I am usually a total chip and cracker fiend, but for the first time, I haven't been missing them! These, I think will be my new addiction. If you don't have a dehydrator, you can do them in your oven on the lowest setting, with the door slightly ajar, and halve the cooking time. Just keep an eye on them so they don't burn! I did the 9:30 Mkats F45 class today, and as a reward, it always finishes with...

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....
