It’s been a long time coming, but I’m excited to announce the launch of cleantreats.co
Over the past three years I’ve been busy with my babies, with a short stint back at work in between, but, I knew I wanted to do something with food. Clean food, quickly and easily is something that I’m incredibly passionate about (and enjoy). Which, is how the idea for cleantreats.co came about. I started using my premixes myself, and the more I spoke to people, it became obvious that they would benefit and enjoy my no bake treat mixes too!
cleantreats.co sells packets of No Bake Treat Mixes to make at home. Refined sugar, dairy and gluten free, the #cleanballs are perfect treats for busy, health conscious people.
Please pop over and check us out on Facebook and Instagram.
As requested….my wholefood pancakes recipe… enjoy!
- 1 cup wholewheat flour
- 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- Pinch Himalayan salt
- 2 tablespoons coconut oil (butter is fine also)
- 2 eggs
- 1 teaspoon honey
- 1/2 – 1 cup almond milk (dairy milk is fine also)
Mix flour, baking powder and salt together. In a separate bowl mix; half the milk, eggs, honey and coconut oil. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients then allow to settle for a few minutes. If mixture is hard to stir, add the remaining milk so that the mixture isn’t too thick. Heat pan with either coconut oil or butter, and pour in a soup ladle amount into pan. Flip once looking cooked. These pancakes will not ‘bubble’ as much as traditional pancakes.
Serve with your choice of toppings; nuts, coconut chips, berries, banana…you decide. But, of course, warm 100% pure maple syrup is a must!
Double the recipe if you want leftovers for lunchboxes, the freezer etc.
You will never know you are eating beautiful avocado with this dessert – it is so chocolatey! It is also a great way to get greens and healthy fats into kids.
- 2 ripe avocados
- 1 ripe banana
- 2-4 medjool dates, pitted and soaked
- 2 tablespoons maple syrup
- 1 tablespoon cacao powder
- Small amount of vanilla bean paste (optional)
Place all ingredients in food processor and blend. Refrigerate for 2-4 hours before serving. Serve chilled with your favourite toppings; chia seeds, coconut chips, cacao nibs or fresh berries – you decide!
Makes six small servings.
Well, I’m 39 weeks and 6 days pregnant today…and, while I’m playing the ‘waiting game’, I thought I’d write a little blog post about; what bump has been up to, what food I’ve been enjoying, and what food I’ve prepared for when ‘he’ arrives.
Bump has been keeping me busy, moving from one side to the other (wiggle that cute bum boy!), head down, loads of rib kicks/grazes, and keeping that heartburn burning. He’s pretty tight in there, but sitting happy in perfect position for delivery (let’s hope he stays that way!). It’s not that glamorous anymore, as every time I pick something up from the floor, I endeavour to perform a full deep wide sumo squat… and, it’s getting harder to get up – thank goodness I’ve practiced those squats hey?! And, walking has become more ‘duck’ like over the past few days!
Friends and family often ask, “what do you eat?”
Generally I’ll follow two type of eating plans depending on what I’m doing; including or excluding clean carbs/high fat dairy. These are reduced if I’m trying to lose a few kgs.
On a Saturday morning journey to the Commonsense Organics store we made a beautiful discovery…Breadfruit Flour.
The Maiden South Pacific owner was sampling her amazing Breadfruit Flour creation – yum!
What is Breadfruit? It’s a fruit from the Pacific Islands, and it can be milled in to flour. So it’s gluten free, and very clean!
Apparently you can use “one for one” substitute for ordinary flour. We gave it a shot….
Our wee family is transitioning to a cleaner diet. The last three weeks I’ve eaten completely clean and have lost 3.7kg and feel fantastic! Next step is to reduce my toddlers dairy intake…. So…”nice-cream” was designed, because EVERYONE loves Ice Cream!!
