Brunch and Dinner

I have to be honest and admit the smells of different non-vegan foods make me hungry! I had a nice sleep in this morning, until 1pm, but Sunday is my only alarm free day! When I was up and checking my emails etc I could smell someones bacon and eggs... this smell made me want to make a nice savoury brunch so I put what I could together and came up with this tofu scramble! I had never tried it before but came up with this one on my own!

1 pack of silken tofu
leftovers! I had one tomato, 1 zuchinni, 1 capsicum and 1 onion that I threw in
1 teaspoon of tumeric
Desired amount of soy sauce
Veagn cheese (optional)

Cook all of your vegies togther, throw in your tofu, soy sauce and tumeric and cook for 3-4 minutes
Serve with toast and add your cheese.

Later that afternoon it was time to prepare a healthy meal! With time to cook I love roasting vegies so that is what I did!
I chopped up a red capsicum, 1 yam and some butternut squash. I tossed it with lots and lots of diced garlic (throw it in the food processor and the pieces are nice and small) and toss with a lot of olive oil, bake for 40 minutes or so and you get yummy vegies! I served mine up with buckwheat and some hommus and it was a perfect dinner.

Dessert was peppermint tea and some of THESE LOVELY BABIES!

Are you a salt-a-holic?

Are you, like me, a SALT-A-HOLIC? 

If you answered "YES" to this question, you may want to join me on my little journey!

So something I have never told anyone on the You Tube and the Blog worlds, is that I have heart problems! Its all okay, I was born with heart problems, had them fixed, but I will always have a "Dodgy Ticker" as my Mum calls it! So basically this means I really need to be healthy and take care of my body, especially my heart!

Okay, to the salt. I LOVE salt, especially paired with carbs. I can not stop myself putting salt on pasta, potatoes, avocado, rice... ANYTHING and this is such a bad habbit! I also use a lot of the stuff. I also use it in cooking! 

My goal is to rid myself of this addiction. How?


I started on March 5th and will go until April 5th, and I will not use salt in cooking or on my food. I want to make my body not feel the need to crave salt. So far I haven't had an obstacle with this yet, but we will see when I make pasta :S

I think it is important to read up on what salt does to your health (and it aint positive) so HERE IS A LINK to find out more!
