The Refillery

In my quest to live a better life, I have been searching for better options & doing what I can to make more eco-friendly choices.  Less plastic, less waste, more happiness & just making decisions with the planet at the forefront.  It isn't always the easiest or most convenient decision, but it is one that… Continue reading The Refillery

Le Famished Cat

Since getting out of hospital & actually being able to swallow my food (one of the fabulous symptoms of Myasthenia Gravis is constantly choking on food, & there would often be days where I would go without being able to eat properly) means that I have picked up quite a bit of extra weight.  In… Continue reading Le Famished Cat

Propa Food Bar

A while ago my sister (who has the Metafit franchise in South Africa) told me about these fabulous smoothies that she had tried.  She then ordered these for her training that she was doing out at Prince's Grant for personal trainers, & managed to get custom ones made in the colours that she needed.  I… Continue reading Propa Food Bar

Von Fluff

Do you remember going to a market as a young child & being completely captivated by the young man spinning the candy floss in a great big red metal drum, & handing you this piece of magic wrapped around a stick?  I was always enthralled by the sugar spinning & how this just melted in… Continue reading Von Fluff

Will Work for Nut Butter

Our family has always had a slight obsession with nut butters - on apples or bananas; in a smoothie; on toast with sugar/syrup/bacon; mixed together with ice cream & milo; or even just out the jar as a little pick me up (yes, by the spoonful!).  In fact there are probably at least 10 other… Continue reading Will Work for Nut Butter

Wow, Wazoogles!

Magic is all around us - you just have to believe! A symptom of Myasthenia Gravis is struggling to swallow, & this is the one that I battle with most of all.  There have been times that I have gone days without being able to eat anything, & when I am really battling I can't… Continue reading Wow, Wazoogles!
