As many of you know by now, I regularly go to Skin Renewal for treatments which, coupled with eating plans by Dr Graham, has drastically improved the tone and texture of my skin. I thought I would do a follow up post from this one to talk about how I have been handling my lifestyle changes, the challenges that come along with it and some of the things I have incorporated into my everyday living.
We all know that Rooibos tea has some amazing health benefits, but exactly how good is it for us? I got some expert advice from the South African Medical Research Council (SAMRC) and promise that before the end of this post, you’ll be rushing towards the kettle to brew yourself a cup.
For as long as I can remember, boxing was a workout I was always eager to try.

Since making the effort to cut out processed foods and sugars, I have been trying to come up with as many healthy treats as possible to keep me going when the 3pm slump hits. One of my absolutes favorites so far has been these amazing quinoa brownies. This has been the third time making them for the past month and I only just remembered to snap some images before eating the entire bunch. Packed full of healthy ingredients, these brownies will boost your energy, satisfy your sweet tooth and keep you full until supper-time comes around – plus, they could not be any easier to make!
Since I went (mostly) gluten free about two months ago, the one thing I found myself craving the most was bread. But, ever since I was told that bread or any gluten containing product act like glass in my stomach, I have been on a mission to find tummy friendly varieties that taste delicious and most importantly, doesn’t harm my stomach lining. In this week’s collaboration with Organic Touch, I will be sharing my favorite bread pre-mix from the store as well as the most delicious and perhaps healthiest coffee to go alongside it (Healthy coffee?
