Six places

It's that time again- a 10-day-you challenge day!

Today we're up to six places! Six places I want to go/ have been/ cherish/ frequent often/ SIX PLACES! :)
Lets get started shall we?

1. Singapore airport. Before you judge, have you ever been there before? It's one of the most beautiful places ever (man-made) It's filled with gigantic plants/ wall vines (kinda looks like a forest) beautiful sculptural things, fish that nibble at your feet, toilets that have sensor flushes... I mean come on! Also Singapore- especially at night!
We went around Christmas time:)

2. Paris
Paris is my number one favourite travel destination that I've been to in all of my 15 years on this planet. It's simply beautiful and I want need to return.

3. Paris Disney land
This goes for more than Paris- any Disney land for that matter (it is the happiest place on Earth after all) and also Movie worlds and universal studios as well.
My friend and I actually promised each other that we for our leavers we would go to all the Disney lands (yeh, we dream big) and meet all the characters :) I wouldn't be surprised if I ended up getting married at Disney land
See! Even Darth Vaders happy :)

4. In New Castle (Australia) at Christmas with the entirety of my family (I have around 20 cousins). It's just such a rare time and the vibe is so great. There are tables filled with food and more tables with long seat benches for us all to sit on (this is at my grandmothers house by the way- she also cooks all the food!)
Me and one of my many cousins doing a cart-wheel :)

5. Donelly River
It's a little village down south of Perth where the me and the family go in the holidays (usually winter/ spring) where you live in a little cottage (no tv/wi-fi/ modern kitchen appliances) where you can wake up in the morning, step out onto the verandah and feed some parrots on your hand, or find some kangaroos to feed. You can also turn on your ovens and toaster when it gets super cold as a heater :)
That be me and a friend when we were about 12-13
6. In my room in the early morning hours with the soft light of my lamp glowing and no body else even considering waking.
 So there's my list of six places :)

What would yours look like?
Disney land yay/ nay? (no just yay)

See ya later!

Coconut peach microwave bowl

Hidy-ho everybody! Guess what I've got.....
A really yummy recipe that combines all sorts of fabulous flavours. It's got peach, it's got coconut, it's got a slight cheese-cakey taste from greek yoghurt. Tick, tick, tick!
I teased you with this pic a couple of days ago:

Teasing over :)

Coconut peach microwave bowl:
25g coconut flour
15g rolled oats
5g oatbran
pinch of bi-carb soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/3 cup greek yoghurt (optional- can add an extra 1/2 cup of milk instead)
chia gel (1/2 tablespoon chia seeds mixed with 2 tablespoons milk- I used oat milk)
1/4 cup milk of choice (I used oat milk)
1/2 peach, chopped

Step 1. Place the dry ingredients in the bowl you'll be using to microwave and stir with a fork.
Step 2. Add the yoghurt, chia gel and milk and stir to combine. (don't stir too much)
Step 3. Stir in the chopped peach:
Step 4. Flatten down the top:
Step 5. Microwave on high for 1 minute. Check. Microwave for another minute. Check. Microwave for another minute. Check. Keep checking until the top is not sloppy. I micrwaved mine for 3 minutes and 30 seconds.
Step 6. Top with anything you like (I decided on some cashew butter) and leave to cool for 10-15 mins.

Step 7. EAT.
It may seem quite dry at first, but as soon as you put that first fork-full in your mouth it will literally melt :)
The peach goes all nice and soft and sweet, perfect with a melted nut butter and tangy cheesecake flavour!

It's also fabulous paired with ice cream. Banana ice cream that is (1 frozen banana whazzed up in a food processor)
It seriously feels like you're eating a dessert for breakfast. Minus the sugar, butter, eggs and pump up the protein, fiber and deliciousness!

Have a great rest of your day!
P.S. here is the hairdresser chopping off my locks to be made into luscious wigs for breast cancer:

The month that was Ausgust and breaking news!

Wow, it seems only last week that I was writing the month that was July post! Time flies people, time flies! Any-ho, you're probably all wondering what this 'breaking news' is, well, you're going to have to wait until the end of the post to find out! (Or simply cheat and scroll down because it's not like I have security cameras on all of my readers computers... duh. duh. DUH! just kidding :D)

So August! August started with a bang! Well an internet bang that is! That was a scary time people- I didn't think I'd make it through. But I did. Now I sound like Bear Grylls
Yep. Definitely same sort of situation
I came back a few days later with breaking news of internet and shocked you with a long list of food pictures!
 The next weekend the internet was lost again :)
This was also the month of no running- and no I still cannot run (it's killing me!) Instead of dwelling on my heartache, I instead professed my other love of all things food!

I started the 10-day-you challenge! Where I'm now up to 6 places (get excited)
I thought out loud here, here and here
There were some awesome recipes:

 Blueberry baked oatmeal
A peach and coconut brekky I have yet to give you. (This teasing game is fun:)

Lastly, in the month of August I ate a lot of nut butter (I think I went through 3 jars :)

Now onto the breaking news! (Or onto the breaking news first if you scrolled down after reading the intro :)
So I have had really long hair for ages. Like super long. This is me last year:

 Now, I don't know why but yesterday after I had brekky, I decided I needed a change. I was thinking about chopping the lucious locks off for a while and I guess yesterday was the day to do it! (really, my hair was death from about my shoulders down- about 30cm of hair) My hair's really thick too, so I thought shorter would be much better for the up and coming Summer. So I told that to the hairdresser, showed her some pics and away we go!

Wait! I have so much hair, it's all one length, all one colour- can't we do something with it? I asked the hairdresser. So we tied it in a pony and chopped it cleanly off to be donated to the breast cancer foundation to make a wig (or three knowing my hair) and here is the result:
 I LOVE IT! The first time I ran my fingers through it was soooo weird. But I love it. Especially when I put it in two little pig-tails :)

That same day (after a wash and blow dry straight) I went swimming :) So I washed it again and it dried curly. Still looks good though:)

So that was my breaking news and that was also August! 
Let's see what September brings
Catch ya later- with a recipe!!!

Lovin'on the breakfast front!

Hello friends!
Today I thought I'd create a post dedicated to breakfasts, because last week almost every brekky I consumed was deeee-lish!
I started off Monday with a simple-pimple brekky (Monday is the start of the week- a 'no thinking required' brekky is a must!) of two wholemeal crumpets topped smothered in cashew butter with a berry delicious smoothie (I couldn't help myself)

 The smoothie was simply 1 frozen banana, 4 large over ripe frozen strawberries (I bought a big punnet on the weekend) and a handful of frozen black grapes (just coz I thought they'd be good in a smoothie:) some greek yoghurt, oat milk and chia seeds- done!
 I love crumpets and hadn't eaten one for like 2 years prior to buying a wholemeal packet and freezing them a few weeks back.
Either Tuesday or Wednesday (I forget) I made oats :)
Using my sneaky little nut butter trick:

 I topped my bowl off with some banana cinnamon steel cut oats:
 With a side of strawberry (same strawberries as before- not frozen) yoghurt (cut up strawberries+ greek yoghurt)
One of my absolute favourites of the week was a banana mango thickie (extremely thick smoothie) topped with some cashew butter granola:
 In the smoothie went 1 frozen banana, 1 handful frozen mango chunks, 2 scoops of greek yoghurt and a splash of milk= super creamy deliciousness:
 Topped off with granola, similar to this one (kisses fingers like an Italian) perfecto:
 This definitely filled me right up!
Now onto my favourite breakfast of the week! OIAJ!
Choc protein overnight oats in an almost empty peanut butter jar with a side of banana yoghurt (1 banana whazzed up in greek yoghrut)
 The OIAJ were like eating a super rich, indulgent nutty dessert! To make:
fill a peanut butter jar about1/2 way up with muesli. Mix together in a seperate bowl about 3?4 cup milk, 1 scoop choc protein powder and 1/2 tablespoon raw cacoa- microwave for 40 seconds- 1 min, then stir until combined.
Add to jar of muesli, shake with top on, take top off and place in fridge overnight!

 Soooo good- I also nearly didn't finish this one it was so filling- but it tasted too good not too... I'll suffer through it! ;)

Like breakfast? Hate it? Skip it? (I sure hope not!)
Tell me your favourite brekky as of late :) (as you can see I can never have the exact same brekky two days in a row)

See ya later- maybe even for an upcoming breakfast recipe featuring coconut and this guy:
