Fuel Notes: Flu Smoothie

Disclaimer: not sure whether this will actually help with Flu but drinking it anyway because it can’t be as bad a fizzy drink for breakfast. My body took a beating post race day last week. We ran the Cape town 12 and I pushed hard for an average pace of under 5min/km. I managed it…

Fuel Notes: Cape Town Healthy Foodie Spots

Over the last few months I’ve realized that us Capetonians are super spoiled for choice with healthy restauranta and take out options. If you venture on to my Instagram you’ll see that most weekends we eat out and to protect that waistline,Β  I like to make healthy eating choices most of time. Being in the…

Fuel Notes: My UCook Experience

The Easter Bunny hopped into my inbox early with a tempting offer this year: a R200 uCook coupon and free NOMU Chocolate products.

Fuel Notes: Banting Boulevard Premixes

Oh the beauty of premixes, saving me the shame of kitchen disasters and my husband being subjected to said disasters and buckets full of tears. My baking misadventures have improved though over the years, especially when attempting healthy recipes, but now and again, I still manage to do go crazy with the coconut flour and…

Food Notes: Nanuki Brownie Bombs

When Nanuki Bars came out, it was a god sent. A good (and healthy!) alternative to store bought chocolate and of course for those with specific dietary requirements, Nanuki bars are the perfect alternative. The bars are generally a tad bit expensive but have always been a worthwhile purchase, and if you look at the…

Drink Notes: Zooka Kombucha

If you follow me on the gram, you will know that I am a huge ‘booch advocate. This stuff is a great alternative to beer or a penchant for sugary soft drinks. When I won a case of Zooka Health Kombucha, I was ecstatic. Not only was it a brand I have not tried yet…

Food Notes: Smoothie Essentials

A smoothie a day keeps the doctor away right?! Smoothies form great part of my day as it saves time post workout and before heading out to the office. Convenient and quick to make, it’s one of the best ways to nourish your body without taking time or a messy kitchen for that matter –…

Food Notes: Snack Bars 2.0

A few months ago I did a post on Snack Bars and it was definitely time to do a second version seeing that there are so many new ones that entered the market in the last few months. If you’re anything like me, I’m always on the hunt for the latest and greatest healthy snacks….

Fuel Notes: Recovering from a Binge

It happens to all of us. We let go a little bit for a special occasion (and rightly so!) and then a week later we’re still munching on all the leftover pastries, marshmallows and cake. Cake for breakfast, yay! Cake everyday for breakfast, my poor belly. We then tend to wait for the next Monday…
