A Sunday well spent. 

A Sunday well spent. 

My Sunday was well spent. 

I slept late, went to work and made some yummy food for the family, came home and figured out dinner for myself! (Quiche Loraine, no crust, with a fresh crunchy salad!) 

I normally wake up in the morning in rush (as most do) and always find myself scrambling or poaching an egg, toasting some rye and swallowing a coffee, before dashing out the door. 

Tonight I decided to make some chia pudding jars and let them settle in the fridge, so that tomorrow I can grab one and start munching while I’m getting ready and then take it with me in the car to finish will sitting in traffic.  

So here, a quick – no, really quick recipe for a chia jar. 

Ingredients 

3 TBSP of chia 

1 TBSP of gluten free oats 

250ml of almond milk (regular or soy milk are also fine, I like my pudding thick, so see the consistency in the morning and you can stir through some more milk to suit you) 

1 TBSP of honey or a preferred sweetener

1/2 an apple chopped 

1 tsp of cinnamon 

1 TBSP of pumpkin seeds

1 TBSP of almonds (flaked or whole) 

Place in a jar or bowl and leave in the refrigerator overnight 

Eat!!!!

Balls of energy! 




Everyone needs a boost now and then. We all on a major mission called LIFE. Most days it wins at kicking our backsides, other days we rule the race. But any bit of help is welcomed and if they are in the form of small delicious bite size pleasures, then why deprive yourself? 

Ingredients 

2 cup of chopped dates 

1/2 cup of honey 

1 TBSP of Chia seeds 

1 TBSP of flax seeds 

A pinch of salt 

1 1/2 cup of gluten free oats 

1 cup of crushed almonds 

1 cup of cranberries 

1/3 cup of raw cacao nibs

Combine the dates, honey, chia, flax and salt in a food processor, it takes a bit of time to mix up, but leave it running and soon it blends to a delicious gooey paste.

Mix the oats, nuts and cranberries with the cacao in a seperate bowl. 

Add the wet to the dry. 



Roll up your sleeves and mix. It’s becomes messy, but what helps is that you can pick your fingers after. BONUS. 

Ok….now leave to “settle” for about 15 minutes. 



Keep a little bowl of water on hand to dampen your palms, it helps when shaping the balls. 

And shape! 

Ok. 

So, you can leave them raw, or you can bake them. I find if you bake them, you can keep them in an airtight container for 2 weeks, if you keep them raw, you have to keep them refrigerated, but in both cases they last that long (if you don’t eat them before). 

If you bake, set oven to 180C, bake for 10 minutes, leave to cool before you store them!

Super Foods? Superseeds? Superhuman powers and superman. 

I’m not one to jump onto fads or these quick fix diets. Detoxing and juicing and souping doesn’t sit well with me. I tend to believe that everything in moderation helps, also that if you just got up from the couch and go for a walk, you will notice the difference soon enough, and patience, with hard work, helps the entire weight loss, get fit, live your best life situation.

BUT! I have jumped onto the Chia seed craze. I eat it in anything I can. Cereal in the morning, apples dipped into it with peanut butter for a snack, even smoothies. Also raw strawberry “jam” using chia is amazing. 

Loaded with fiber, protein, Omega3, Calcium, Maganese, Magnesium, Phosphorous and also with decent amounts of Zinc, VitaminB3, potassium, VitaminB1 and VitaminB2!!!  It is a superseed!! Sheeeeeeewy! 

So get some Chia! Sprinkle it everywhere!
