Banana Buzz Smoothie (hint, hint – coffee!)

 

SmoothiebananacoffeeSo I’m back from Cherry Blossom gazing in Japan and wow(!) what an amazing place that is for a number of different reasons. Will elaborate more in a coming post but for now, I just wanted to show you my latest breakfast-on-the-run creation.

With both more fruit and coffee coming back into my life, start the day with a Ka –BANGO!

Potato Shortbread Cookies (Gluten free, 4 ingredients)

Since I’ve discovered that heating nut flours like almond flour etc actually increases the oxidisation of PUFAs (poly unsaturated fatty acids) in them and kind of makes them toxic (eek!), you can understand why I’m not so keen to continue making up recipes with these nutty flours in it.

The switch from very Low Carb to Pro Metabolic eating Part 2 – The OUT list.

saladleavesSo last post I detailed all the foods I’m including in my diet to eat in a pro metabolic way, if you need a refresher of what they were, then click here.

Now here is the ‘perhaps they are not as healthy as we thought’ list.

Some entries may shock you as they did me… approach with an open mind…

Ok, so I’ve mentioned a few times now that I have changed how I am eating.

The reason:

…my holy grail – low sugar and low carb – stopped working for me and the weight started to pile back on!

Oh no!

Cherry & Blueberry Popsicles

What happened to the cherries this year? Hardly any in the stores and still so expensive. Just as well there are frozen options handy at all times.

Have been loving these fruity popsicles (or Icy Poles for the Aussies!) just as an after dinner ‘cool me down’ and little sweet hit.

What I’ve learned… was mostly wrong!

happyny2017It’s been an eye opening last 6 months for me on the healthy food front!

I’ve discovered a whole different angle of nutrition based on nourishing, healing and nurturing your body. It supports healthy hormones, regulates your blood sugar, encourages repair and rejuvenation and is basically everything you need for a super healthy body, fast metabolism and easy weight loss/maintenance.

Christmas Round Up

healthy, cacao butter, coconut oil, raw honey

Not sure what it is about December but as soon as it hits, the panic sets in!

I always feel like I have more time than I do to get things organised and it freaks me out when I realise I don’t! How about you?

One year, I’d love to go away for all of December and January and just skip it. Bask on a beach maybe?

As you can imagine, I haven’t been adding to the stress by trying to create new treats – the imagination is still running wild with new options I want to try, but I’m being kind to myself.

So I thought I would leave you with a few suggestions on nibbles and sweets from my past recipe pursuits, that may work for our hot weather Chrissy and keep everyone healthy at the same time.

And even better, at the end of my list, Sonia from Natural New Age Mum has compiled a fantastic resource of Christmas wholefood recipes from other healthy writers – lots of great ideas there. Totally saved me the work and more stress! Cheers Sonia!

Pro Metabolic Orange Popsicles

Apparently real orange juice is quite the recovery wonder food. We always knew it had lots of Vitamin C but it also has magnesium and when combined with sea salt, hydrolysed gelatin and coconut water it’s better for electrolyte replacement after strenuous exercise, than the chemical laden sports drinks.

Sounds good to me.

Healthy Chocolate Paddle Pops

I’ve been reading lots of recipes for banana ice-cream lately with some peeps even making whole recipe books about it! And most others declaring that it is soooo good. I’ve been meaning to try it for a while, but I don’t usually eat bananas as I find them too starchy and just all too much really.

I’ve bought bananas a few times and cut it up and whacked it in the freezer with the intention of giving it a go, to see if it is ‘just like normal ice-cream’ as they say but every time I would forget and 3 months later – oops the frozen bananas are a bit too rank to do anything other than throw them away. (Sorry food waste police!)
