What to do with tinned tomato

Maybe I was Italian in a past life? A last name like Kelly sure doesn’t indicate that but you never know. It would explain something at least. Just take a look at my stash of tinned tomatoes. Are you wondering what to do with tinned tomato? What anyone could possibly do with all that tinned…

Carrot cake bliss balls

I’ve gotten a bit lazy in my recipe creation recently. I guess I could flip that and say I’ve gotten more effective. I wasn’t the one who discovered carrot cake bliss balls. Instead of going out and looking for recipes, I’ve been letting other people do the work. I wait for someone else to make…

Fit Feb 2018 – My challenge to myself

Last year was a doozy for me. It was so amazing in so many ways and I achieve so much more than I ever have before in my business… but I got sick. A lot. Last year I was bedridden with nasty viruses 3 times. I think the last time I was bedridden with a…

We have a grocery budget. It used to be that we had a ‘budget’ that we were meant to stick to but in reality, we’d put the groceries on the credit card and usually go over the allocated amount. About six months ago, we switched the groceries to their own debit account with its own…

Best ever easy chicken nuggets

Best ever easy chicken nuggets via

Efficient is kinda my middle name. (I’ll get to the easy chicken nuggets I promise) I can’t tell you the number of times I’ve said to my husband that his way of doing something is inefficient. Yep I’m a real pleasure to live with sometimes. It’s probably why I didn’t go very well working in…

I’m a celebration cake kinda girl (read on for the recipe for super quick wholefood vanilla cupcakes). I love making Birthday cakes and even better if there’s a theme.

Why exercise for me has nothing to do with weight or fitness

I used to sweat it out at the gym. I was there at 5.30am waiting for them to open their doors so I could run on the treadmill before my 6am spin class so I had time to get home, shower, have breakfast and get to work. I had a heart rate monitor but I…

Quick and easy salad dressings

Salad used to be a dirty word for me. It was the days of the iceberg lettuce, halved cherry tomatoes, sliced cucumber and red onion smothered in some sort of vinaigrette. You know – the type of salad you used to get on the side – probably still do at some – when you order…
