My first ever blog!

I'm very excited to have my website up and starting my first ever blog!  This follows 6.5 years of learning about different aspects of nutrition.  To recharge batteries and rewind, we went on a big holiday touring Italy and France for 4 weeks which was amazing.  

We spent a lot of of our time around food - either eating deliciously cooked local food or planning our next meals!  We visited wonderful food markets and it was fascinating to watch how the Italians shopped for their food. Their are so passionate about food and cooking and use local and seasonal foods.  

Although we ate very well, I struggled to find healthy breakfast alternatives with all the refined wheat products around!  Therefore I'm quite happy to be back home and having a little 'detox' of processed sugars, wheat or dairy products.  So far so good but I had major craving for dark chocolate so made these simple raw chocolate and coconut balls...all in 15min!

Raw chocolate, honey & coconut balls

1 cup of ground almonds

1/2 cup of raw chocolate powder

3 tablespoons of organic honey

3-6 tablespoons of water

1. Mix raw chocolate, grunded almonds, honey and water together to make a smooth consistency (very sticky!) 

2. Make balls and roll them in shredded coconut.   

Put in a fridge for 30 mins & enjoy! Delicious!
