Tropical Chia Glow Bowl *VEGAN AND RAW*

Hello my lovelies and happy New Year! Even though the New Year started a week ago, I’m just now catching up. So, I’m celebrating today. And what better way to celebrate than with a bowl of nourishing sunshine, am I right?!

One thing I decided on this year was upping my intake of chia puddings because of the skin-loving benefits. My face is always smoother, plumper {in a good way!} and glowy-er when I do. Combine that with my craving for sunshine since this dreary summer Sydney weather isn’t giving me any, and BAM! This tropical chia bowl of good mood food was born. Grab a bite of summer with the recipe below!

Wake up to Beautiful: "Beauty" Pebbles with Green Goddess Mylk

When I was little, I wouldn’t eat breakfast unless it had a cartoon character on the box or at least went snap, crackle and pop once the milk was poured. Maybe you can relate? Now, that I’m older, and dare I say a bit wiser, I still love a good bowl of cereal {like really, really love} but prefer to satisfy that craving in a way that loves my body right back. After all, even though Post has declared its Fruity Pebbles gluten free that doesn’t make it healthy. Do you even know what’s in that over-processed, neon-colored stuff? I checked it out and well, it’s not very pretty:

Chai-Spice Persimmon Love Muffins

I remember the first time I went to Brick Street Cafe in Greenville, SC – a charming cafe with a brick facade and quirky interior adorned with odds and ends and antique finds. I was interning at the local news station and one of the reporters insisted she take me here for lunch because the cake is amazing. Well, twist my arm. So, we went. I ordered the fresh fruit plate with a side of love muffin. While the death by chocolate cake was seriously to die for, what really left me longing for more was that humble little love muffin, which by no means, was small at all. This muffin, always served warm, jam-packed {literally} with a cream cheese filling and a dollop of raspberry jam and just the right amount of crumble is certainly made with love… and butter and white flour and lots and lots of sugar.

Rocking Mint Cacao Chip Smoothie

I've been DYING to make this smoothie since I found inspiration on The Chalkboard Magazine here a few days ago. What was the holdup? Mint was apparently a rare commodity... I couldn't find organic anywhere and didn't want to settle for a peppermint extract with added oils and alcohol. Whole Foods finally had some in stock when I went yesterday to load up on gluten-free, sprouted almond milk sandwiches ;) And thank goodness they did because what happened this morning in my blender was pure magic I tell you. This smoothie is everything amazing. And everything that is good in this world.
