‘bucha baby!

I have been so excited…  three weeks after hiding my first batch of kombucha in a dark cupboard I can finally unveil it!  In addition to excited, I was very. very nervous. What if I messed up the preparation? What if I didn’t steep…

There are three things I recommend to people who eat a SAD diet and complain about feeling sick / bloated / stuffy / generally miserable /  etc… Start the day with warm lemon water Make fresh juice every day and / or Embrace green…

chocolate superfood smoothie

It appears that I can’t get enough of creating new smoothie concoctions lately! Or, I am simply substituting too many meals with these things ; ) Oh well, there are definitely worse things, right??

green nectarine smoothie

Yesterday it took me 20oz to decide that I actually liked my smoothie concoction! Today I thought I’d share the details incase you ever find yourself, as I did, with this very ripe, random mix of ingredients. I typically like my green smoothies to…

banana matcha smoothie

I’m having a little love affair with Matcha tea at the moment! It takes some getting used to but I definitely think it’s worth the effort (check out this article by Sleep Warrior for the down-low on the magic of Matcha). In an exchange on Facebook,…

peachy rise & shine smoothie

Honestly, I can’t remember what day of the 30 day Wholefood Simply smoothie challenge we’re on but I’m loving it! A lot of ‘firsts’ for me: last week I smoothied vegetables that weren’t leafy greens (beet and celery) in one of my new favorite…

chocolate mousse smoothie

I typically work from home on Friday, which I love because it gives me some freedom to experiment in the kitchen, and hate because I end up spending a lot of time experimenting in the kitchen… or at least eating. And today is Friday,…

mum’s honor green juice

It’s my mum’s birthday today so my morning juice is in her honor (I’m sorry to mix Australian and US English in this sentence but I can’t quite bring myself to type ‘mom’, it doesn’t feel right!) She started juicing a lifetime ago and…

kick the caffeine with beautiful herbal teas

I love black tea, my father is British after all and it was the proper thing to do in Tasmania, Australia where I grew up as a child – heavily influenced by British due to Port Arthur and such back in the day I…
