Lately I am loving…

1. Breaking BadBreaking Bad
With only 3 episodes left all I can think is; how is it all going to end? I swing between wanting Walt to get caught and wanting him to get away every episode. It’s tense. I love it.

2. KombuchaMojo Ginger Tonic Kombucha
Following people in the US on instagram has its drawbacks, one of which is you see so many delicious things that we just can’t get here in Australia. Thankfully, I have managed to get my hands on Kombucha and it was love at first sip. My favourite flavour so far is Ginger Tonic, so tart and refreshing. There is a batch currently doing its thing on my kitchen bench- I am very much looking forward to seeing how it turns out.

3. The Nike Plus appNike Plus
I can’t remember how I came across this app but it’s got to be the best $2.50 I’ve spent. Super handy for tracking distance and speed, I turned it on whenever I go for a walk or run (and while trying to get in 200km before summer it’s proving particularly helpful!)

4. Pana ChocolatePana Chocolate- sour cherry and vanilla
Cinnamon. Mint. Coconut & Goji. Nuts. Eighty. They are all amazing, and until this week I would have been hard pressed to pick a favourite (cinnamon probably would have won by a nose), but then Sour Cherry and Vanilla happened and my little mind was blown. So sour. So smooth. So sweet. The sourness of the cherry perfectly offsets the bitterness of the dark chocolate and it is just lick your fingers (and the wrapper) good.

What on your love list?

Sunday

I both love and hate Sundays all at once.

I love them because it’s grocery shopping day- and I really enjoy grocery shopping. I love them because it’s food prep day. I love them because I generally slouch around and don’t really leave the house aside from aforementioned grocery shopping.

I hate them because they are the last day between me and Monday. I really need to start embracing Mondays.

This Sunday just gone wasn’t much different although it did end with Father’s Day dinner for my wonderful dad.

Here’s how the rest of it looked… IMG_4901After looking at them every week I bought a coconut. Fearing for my hands the BF hacked into it for me. I decided we need a cleaver for future coconut hacking. It was amazing. I don’t know what all those coconut water brands do to it when they package it, but honestly, when compared to the real thing, they all kinda suck.IMG_4902Another Sunday treat. For the most part I am a bit of a Pana Chocolate faithful. However I couldn’t resist this little Loving Earth number at the counter of my newly discovered organic-wholefoods market (within walking distance from my house!) It’s coconut mylk and boy oh boy was it good! IMG_4904This was my outrageously large lunch. I did not finish it all. IMG_4903Post lunch it was time to bake. I attempted a Blueberry Buckle upon request from the BF but gave it a clean/paleo twist- almond meal and coconut flour, honey, almond milk, that kind of thing. It wasn’t a complete failure- the coconut sugar crumbly topping was particularly good- but there are definitely some improvements to be made. IMG_4905I think I love Kombucha. This ginger one is my favourite, so zingy and fresh! Continuing to buy might break the bank though so I am going to attempt to brew some at home. I’ll be honest, the result could go either way. I did manage to kill a sour dough starter once…

And then it was off to the parents place for dinner. So long weekend!
