August has been a month of sunny winter days here – absolute bliss!
Here are some other things I have been loving and enjoying this month:
Gluten Free Grain Free cookbook. I am putting it out there – Tania Hubbard is Australia’s gluten free, grain free goddess! She was kind enough to post me a copy of her sensational cookbook and I am loving it so much. Tania is the brains behind that amazing almond and chia bread recipe and the chocolate chia cake. The recipes are quick and easy and they taste sensational. I am such a fan! You can get the book straight from Tania at her website.
Stress Away from Young Living. I don’t know if you have been feeling the energy shifts and changes this month, but I sure have! One thing that I always use to help me ride out the storm is the ‘Stress Away’ blend of essential oils. You can take two drops in water and ingest it as needed or diffuse it in a room, but I like to just dab it on my wrists and temples and inhale the beautiful oils. This special blend is designed to relieve daily stress, encourage relaxation, and reduce nervous tension. The roll on is really handy to keep in your handbag. You can get Stress Away from me at my new Young Living website page. ( you need to join as a new customer to order )
Changing Habits Probiotic. This month I have bought some of Cyndi O’Meara’s probiotic powder to test it out. I take a daily probiotic powder and so do my family. This one however is gluten-free so it will suit a lot of you who have been asking me about probiotic powders free of wheat. I think it’s a fabulous product and it works really well for us.
This one contains all organic ingredients – rice, spirulina, linseed, alfalfa, sweet potato, sunflower kernels, quinoa, alfalfa, amaranth, pumpkin seeds, chia seeds, ginger, broccoli and molasses. These ingredients go through an organic fermentation process using natural, organic bacteria. Find out some more info in this video. You can get it from my affiliate shop link here.
Re-usable Teabag. I really am fussy about the teabags I buy. Some teabags are bleached or made of plastic (which is not so good when you hit it with boiling water!) I was really excited to come across these handmade reusable teabags from local lady, Jo who runs a cute little cafe at the markets. She makes them herself from muslin – you just insert your loose leaf tea and away you go! It is easier to wait for the teabag to dry before emptying it out. Find out more about Jo at her Facebook page, Cafe Calma. She might even post one to you!
Pomelo. Where have you been all my life? Fat, juicy and sweet, bursting with vitality. It doesn’t give you that sourpuss look like eating grapefruit does. It’s sweet and sort of lemonadey tasting. They are native to South East Asia but we have some lovely local farmers growing them here. I am hooked! Anyone else like pomelos? Have you got any recipes?
I would love to hear some things you have discovered or are loving this month! Talk to me!
