Need a savoury fix? Mushroom and Lentil Rolls… with home-made Tomato Sauce…I kid you not!! NO MEAT, just the pure taste of fungus and legumes all wrapped up in that golden goodness, dipped in fresh home-made tomato sauce. Yummy!
When I’m picking tracks I usually avoid those that start with ‘Mt’, I have images of blizzards, frost bite or rescue teams. HOWEVER, we are in Auckland and there are no alpine mountains – at all. Mt Zion is probably the easiest Mt in NZ, the car park is at the top!
I’ve started making healthy options; without sugar, dairy or processed foods… and these little bliss balls are so easy to make!
This smoothie came about when I was making cacao and pistachio bliss balls. There is always cacao in my cardboard and berries in the freezer. Because I don’t eat dairy, almond milk is a must in the fridge at all times. Oh and chia seeds, these tiny little things pack a punch when it comes to sustaining consistent energy. They should be classed as a super power, maybe they already are!? Cacao and Berry Smoothie – Sugar Free / Dairy Free Ingredients: 1 1/2 cups organic almond milk 1 cup frozen berries 1 banana 1 Tbsp raw cacao powder 1 Tbsp chia seeds Method: Mix it all in a blender and sprinkle with some coconut and nuts Enjoy! I’m still buzzing from this!
The first part of the track is walking up to the Huia Dam, its an incline! To be expected of course but the way we were feeling, flat would have been preferred!
