I am pretty much obsessed with Wellness Cookbooks these days!  I am sure a new one is released each week and I am there snapping it up within a few days! 

My current favourite is The Healthy Life by Jessica Sepel.  Good good stuff in here.  

I whipped up some porridge last week using a bit of a combination of recipes from the book.  I an a non gluten or wheat eater so don’t tend to do breakfasts like this very often (it is usually bacon and eggs at our place!).  I combined the peanut butter and banana porridge with the sticky date porridge to get a Sticky Peanut butter, Banana and Date Porridge!    Mine was made with quinoa flakes and homemade almond milk – So delicious!

To say my weekend was amazing is an understatement.  I am still flying high after spending the most glorious weekend surrounded by talented ladies from all parts of the globe.  Ladies who love to be immersed in things they are passionate about.  Ladies who love to share and inspire.   I get so much out of just being around creative souls – soaking up their enthusiasm – an enthusiasm I have, but at times is dampened by the fact that I work alone at home and when I am not working I am surrounded by little people who are quite demanding!  The slow living workshop I attended last weekend was just what I needed to give me the motivation to take exciting steps!  I am full of ideas (probably too many) so now need to bring them to life!  The possibilities are endless really.  Thank you to the amazing Luisa Brimble, Beth Kirby from Local Milk & Rebekka Seale from Camellia Fibre Company for what was a truly wonderful weekend.

Some other pretty terrific people were also involved over the weekend giving their time, amazing produce, incredible food and beautiful  products – go check all these cool people out
The Floury Baker – Anna provided us with the most amazing tarts – not only were they a joy to photograph but Anna tarts are THE BEST I have ever tasted!
Arthur Street Kitchen – Hetty’s salads were incredible and I am in need of her recently released cook book!
Stacey Clark Stylist – Stacey was on hand to be a right hand to the girls and be our sometimes model – she also made us laugh lots! 
Sney Roy from Cook Republic – Sneh’s beautiful props were on hand for us to play with! Very envious of her collection.
Our lovely take home gifts were from The Assembly, The Jam Bandits & Maison Balzac

Now here are some images I captured over the weekend – the amazing venue is Glenmore House! Totally incredible.
