Pomegranate and Cinnamon chia pudding

CHIA pomegranate

Last month my good friend Jo Whitton came to stay with me in the lead up to her book launch which you must check out here. It's a wonderful book brimful of ideas for the allergy friendly home, whether you have a thermomix or not! I made her a few treats to take to the hotel for her stay there afterwards, so she didn't have to worry about resorting to hotel snacks - pringles and mm's are hardly options for an allergy friendly cook book author!  She shared the pomegranate chia pudding I'd made for … [Read more...]

IMG_0427

Because of brand, we spend $50 on a 'luxury' scrub as a 'treat'. Because of brand we believe we feel better, validated, comforted, giddy... I too have bought many a time because of brand. I once worked in the luxury beauty industry pushing the most … [Read more...]
