My adventure with minimalism

He who buys what he does not need, steals from himself - Swedish Proverb Ok! I don't know about you, but there is something freeing about being in a tidy, organized room. On the flip side, I get chest pain when I'm in a disaster of a room. Enough so, people sometimes poke fun at… Continue reading My adventure with minimalism

Letting Go

It has been quite some time since I have written here and I'm feeling a little rusty!  In my journey to push myself through the fears of what stands between me and my goals, one prompt has been consistent as of late. Writing a blog. So here I am and I'm both scared and excited.… Continue reading Letting Go

Lemons please!

In my journey to health and wellness, one common piece of advice that I have been getting is drinking the juice of 1/2 a lemon in warm water first thing in the morning, at least within the first 30 minutes of when you wake up.  Why? What are the benefits? Improving digestion Boosting your immune… Continue reading Lemons please!

Who I am and Why I’m here :)

Roughly around six months ago, I was at a low when it came to certain frustrations and my health. One day I had come to an 'AHA' type moment and realized that sitting there miserable and wishing for things to change were just not going to happen. If you want change, you have to get… Continue reading Who I am and Why I’m here 🙂

A friend of mine posted a one frame cartoon drawing on a social media site that spoke volumes. Picture this....You're sitting on a bus (with one other passenger on board) going on a route through the mountains.  On the right side of the bus your view is the mountain, all you see is rock. I… Continue reading Long Distance Family Making it Work

Being Grateful….

Everyone has a story, everyone has problems, everyone has something that they are dealing with. Good or bad, stress is stress. One of the dividing differences between how some people appear solid or appear like they are falling apart is how they deal with the situation. A lesson that I have been learning is one of gratefulness.… Continue reading Being Grateful….

Cherry coconut and cacao bliss balls

Now this is a recipe I am going to try! Nutrient and power packed. Excellent snack or on the go idea.


The chilly winter weather has well and truly arrived here in Sydney, Roomies. And while the cold, and quite often wet mornings are making my early-morning runs more of a challenge – thank you, treadmill – I do love how the drop in temperature always inspires me to hibernate away in the kitchen and cook up a clean-eating storm.

Case in point: today on this frosty Sunday afternoon, while my slow-cook lamb shoulder worked its magic in the oven (complete with roasted Brussels sprouts, sweet potato mash and steamed greens. Incredible, if I do say so…) – I got to work on dessert: these cherry, coconut and cacao bliss balls. Like cashew nut butter and celery or oats and spicy cinnamon, the combination of cherries, coconut and chocolate (by way of raw cacao powder) is a match made in superfood heaven. It. Just. Works. Every. Time.
