Kids: Get your Veggies the Yummy Way


The start of spring here in the northern hemisphere was a good excuse as any to make our first batch of healthy smoothies for the season. My kids were pretty impressed with the results and no one complained of the added greens!

We used what ingredients we had in the fridge and came up with this delightfully tasty and nutritious Blackberry Mango Green Smoothie:

Ingredients (makes 6-8 servings):
-chopped kale (approximately 3 stalks)
-chopped celery stalks (approximately 3 stalks)
-200g frozen organic blackberries
-200g frozen organic mango chunks
-3 cups of organic almond milk
-1 cup of organic pear juice

Directions:Combine ingredients in blender. Serve immediately.

*You can adjust amounts as per your preference.

Raise a glass to your hero: Mango-peach lemon yoghurt smoothie supreme


Are you drawn to certain people in your life over and over again? What is it about them that makes them radiate the qualities that you just can’t get enough of? These people inspire you, raise you up, help you realize your full potential.

You find them and you just know that they are meant to be a part of your life journey.

For me, I have a few that have inspired me at various stages in my life, namely: my kids, my husband, my best friends, a few teachers and a few notable acquaintances. But today, it’s all about my all-time fave yoga teacher. She really has been a blessing and I have learned so much from taking her classes. When I’ve completed one of her classes, it’s like the whole world is made new and fresh and inspiring again. I want to be that much better in everything. A better daughter, sister, wife, mum, practitioner, writer.

Who are yours?
