It has been a while since I've posted anything because life is busy. But in a small amount of quiet, I have decided to take this blog in a new direction and commit to writing. With that has come a brand new website that still has all my recipes but will feature more on health & wellness.
This will be my last post here, so head over to my new website Designer Health and explore!
Thanks for following a table prepared & I hope to see you over at my new website.
Hey friends. I'm still alive.
And very excited to have time to blog again. This year has been my busiest by far but I won't bore you with the details, I'll just bombard you with these little bombs of chocolatey (apparently that's not a word? as if) goodness.
When I was in high school and was still eating gluten and dairy, I used to always get carrot cake from the school canteen. Mostly on those days when I had that annoying free period right in the middle of the day - where you can't go to school later but can't leave early either. So annoying.
So to make myself get through this time of extreme boredom and study, I got myself carrot cake. Bad mel habit #34: eating when bored.
This is my new favourite. I know, I know, I've probably said that before but it is! It's perfect for special occasions because most of us either a) have a fussy friend who can't eat anything or b) are the fussy friend themselves. I come under category b) which annoys me because I don't like being fussy. I've had to learn the art of saying 'no' when offered delicious looking (chocolate) foods that I know will punish me later.
It's not like I don't eat gluten or dairy such to annoy people on a daily basis. Most people are the same with whatever food they avoid - usually there is a good reason and would love to be able to eat chocolate cheesecake and pizza. My reason: I eat gluten or dairy and don't feel so hot afterwards.
This is a potential new favourite - and get this: completely chocolate free. I didn't think is was possible to have a favourite food that does no contain chocolate. I did deliberate topping these salted caramel bars with chocolate, but thankfully decided against it. And with all this chocolate Valentine's Day stuff EVERYWHERE, it's like a holiday for your tastebuds. If they could go on holidays.
There are gazillions of chocolate avocado mousses out there, I know. But I wanted to make my own version, because I can - and someone who is reading this might not have tried a 'mousse' with avocado before, and they are definitely worth a try.
