Healthy Pizza Bites- Chris’ Dips

Have you tried the new range of Chris’ Dips? My favourite at the moment is the Spiced Roasted Carrot and Turmeric. It is FULL of flavour and very moreish. It’s safe to say I’ve eaten the entire container. The great thing about the Chris’ Dips range is they taste like you’ve just made them yourself….

John’s Nuts

Nuts are a great source of essential nutrients, dietary fibre and minerals such as calcium, iron, zinc and magnesium. A small handful of nuts can provide much needed health benefits and can actually aid in weight loss. Roasted? Salted? Raw? Raw nuts are always best, just like fruits and vegetables, keeping foods in their natural…

Homemade is always better than processed, packaged foods. Making foods yourself allows sugar and fat control. Along with what ingredients you wish to incorporate.

Oliver’s Real Food

Oliver’s is the kinda place that you want to see at every shopping centre, every airport & at every servo. These guys are making healthy, quick, nutritious food accessible.  Unfortunately the only downfall at the moment is that it takes an eTag to visit them, something I don’t have… So I bought an east link…

The Nutrition Bar

I love that there are so many more places opening up that are providing real, genuine foods. Nutrition Bar has been at the top of my list for a while & I finally made the visit to Richmond by train today. The two staff members working today were friendly and patient as I perused the menu boards…

Pressed Juices, Melbourne

There’s something about being in the City that makes me feel uptight, rushed and under the pump.  It puts me the mindset that I needed to get to my destination and that I needed to arrive there quickly.  Amongst all the busy city traffic and the workers marching around like soldiers, a place like Pressed Juices exists.  We…

A Caterpillar’s Dream

It’s a freezing, typical winter’s day in Melbourne. I decided a warm lunch was in order and googled a Vegan suitable cafe. I came up A Caterpillar’s Dream in Kew.  I invited my friend Jess along and after  a good 30 minute drive in the pouring rain, we met at this cute little venue. The…

I started…
