    Growing up, we had to start making our own school lunches in about year 3. I guess it’s because I didn’t always eat what was packed for me (jam sandwiches? Yech) and my parent’s figured maybe I’d be more inclined to eat what I packed myself. I don’t really know why, but regardless that’s...

    I’ve recently been faced with a dilemma. We visited family over Easter and after spending much time gushing over my love of all things chocolate with my cousin—like mousse cake, cookies and cupcakes—my aunt declared that I was addicted to it. Me? Addicted to chocolate? Well maybe. I mean I really, really love the...

    My dear oreo. Where have you been all my life? I understand that we have had our issues. Growing up so far separated from your magical chocolaty crunch was always destined to make our love difficult. But, please, do not hold my childhood against me. You have ventured across the ocean to the shores...

    I mentioned two posts ago that we had been travelling the world. Well, not quite the world, but Europe. Last time we went to Europe was four years ago. Well and truly before we started eating sugar free! And let me tell you that four years ago, the chocolate in Europe was amazing. So...

    coconut macaroons from above egg free sugar free nut free dairy free

    We were in Melbourne last year and Gareth ate his first ever macaroon at a cafe we went to that specialised in desserts. He was hooked! Can you tell he is a sweet tooth much? We tried a few different flavours and loved them all. If only we’d known what we were missing out on!...

    chocolate stacked from above

    Chocolate. Chocolate is possibly the reason I started this blog. It’s certainly a big factor in why I went sugar free. Or I should say, a big factor in my ability to go sugar free. You see, I’m a chocolatier. Wow. It feels good to say that. I bet it would mean instant friends at...

    Since my diet overhaul, I’ve been looking very carefully at everything I’ve been putting my body into contact with. I even did science at university and I don’t understand half of what’s on the label of most beauty products! Scary. I mean I’ve always been fascinated with the marketing hype of beauty products—it seems...
