This year, Pantone introduced “Greenery” as the colour of the year. So, I thought it would be fitting to share with you my favourite green smoothie that just so happens to also be the same colour as the pantone colour of the year “Greenery”.Read More »
An interest that I share with my two (almost three!) year old nephew is baking, or as he calls it “making“. I like to get creative, test new recipes and tweak old ones with my own personal touch. I love finding a recipe that is considerably unhealthy and filled with foods that are common food allergens such as processed sugars, gluten, wheat, dairy, etc. and challenging myself to turn the recipe into a delicious and nutritious masterpiece.
