My Cacao and Coconut granola is chocolatey, crunchy, full of superfoods and super simple to make! This breakfast has definitely become a family favourite in our household

I love making my own granola.  And whipping up your own granola is super simple and its such a great alternative to many of the store bought granola’s which are full of unnecessary unhealthy ingredients.

The best thing about making your own granola is choosing exactly what you like to go in it and you can use what you have on hand so you can change it up each time you make it.

This recipe is full of superfoods and healthy fats.  The base ingredient is raw activated buckwheat.  A great gluten free option full of fibre, protein and vitamins. I have chosen to use coconut oil which is nutritious and has a light flavour – feel free to mix this up with another healthy alternative.  Read More

An easy overnight Bircher recipe, perfect for the warmer months.


I have a couple of go to breakfast options in the morning and this is definitely one of them especially on those days when I don’t have much time in the morning.  It only requires a small amount of preparation the night before and its good to go in the morning topped with your choice of fresh fruit.

This recipe is a great combination of plant based protein, essential fats and complex carbohydrates which are slowly digested keeping you fuller for longer.  The soaking of the ingredients also means it is much easier to digest helping to increase nutrient absorption.  Much better than a store brought cereal for breakfast which is often full of added sugar and refined carbohydrates with minimal nutrients.

I always love to whip up a smoothie when I’m short of time or on the go. And Berry smoothies are definitely my ‘go to.’

This creamy berry smoothie is so quick and easy and super tasty.

You can use fresh of frozen berries. I usually use frozen berries. Frozen berries also result in a much thicker smoothie which I like.
