I quit sugar. Really?

sugar, metabolism, ray peatI recently saw Sarah Wilson, creator of the I Quit Sugar program, showing her new jumper with SUGAR SUCKS on it and it made me wonder… is this getting a bit too negative, counter productive and perhaps even wrong?

Chocolate Travel Bars

Chocolate Travel BarsI wanted to create something that I could take with me for hiking adventures or even work when I don’t have a fridge handy. These Chocolate Travel Bars are the answer.

While I totally love my normal fudge/chocolate creations, they are strictly fridge to mouth options only, as they melt into a gooey mess within half an hour of being out of the chilly environment.

Not so practical for the lunchbox or if you want to take travel snacks.

Macadamia Date Slice with Coconut Cream Icing

dates, healthy, weight loss, adrian alford photography, loose skin, losing weight,

My forte is melt and mix slices because they work like 99% of time – easy, easy, easy – and that’s why I like this Macadamia Date Slice.

I’ve given up on coconut flour – that’s firmly in the too hard basket – it requires incredible patience and nearly a chemistry degree – and I have neither! Well no patience with cooking anyway – with people, that’s another story. I posted a coconut flour recipe run down on facebook last week from people who are far better at it than me – see it here.

White Chocolate Coconut Slice

coconut, macadamia, coconut oil, cacao butterSteering a little away from peanut butter and chocolate this week, I thought I would revisit some of my white treats and create something new. Presenting White Chocolate Coconut Slice.

This is a step up from the White Chocolate Fudge recipe and is even more creamy and tastes even more like those chewy Milk Shake lollies of my youth. (I was sure my teeth were going to come out chewing those lollies.)

Stevia causes Belly Fat…

stevia causes belly fatIs it true that stevia causes belly fat?

In this whole weight loss and health game, I like to be my own grand experiment to see what works for me and makes me feel amazing, hopefully all the time.

So I read up on different healthy food related topics, try them on for size, then make up my own mind as to whether what is written is true for me. Which is why I might be in favour of a product at a point in time, but after using for six months or more, I will change my mind because of the effects it has on me.

One of these products for which I have had a recent switch-o change-o is Stevia.

Cherry Chocolate Jelly Slice

I have a confession to make. This recipe for Cherry Chocolate Jelly Slice was supposed to be something entirely different. It was supposed to be ice-cream!

With cherry season here I had visions in my head of this deliciously creamy ice-cream with chunks of cherry and chocolate through it and a bit of a crunch of macadamia nuts – heavenly, dreamy and yum.
