This protein packed health slice is perfect for the afternoon slump or after a bout of intensive exercise. It’s naturally sweet and sugar free and I’ve been watching my sweet tooth of a husband dive into it every chance he gets.
On the subject of exercise, I have remained committed to my 21 day challenge at Kaya Health Clubs and I’m almost halfway through. I have been to Kaya 10 times already in 15 days. Since my last update, I’ve met with Kate Bannister, Kaya’s super fit in-house Personal Trainer who wrote me up a killer program to work through when I’m not running, doing Pilates or yoga! Kate’s program was the first ever written for me that focuses on working multiple muscle groups at the same time for example, triceps and biceps in the one exercise. This saves so much time and the circuit style program isn’t at all monotonous. I won’t lie to you, I walk funny some days and all this exercise is intense but it’s become addictive and I’m loving all my new found energy, which you could have too if you ENTER THE FOLLOWING COMPETITION.
I’m excited to announce that Kaya Health Clubs has given me a 3 month membership inclusive of all the Pilates, Spin, Yoga, Group Fitness, Cardio and Weights you want valued at $605 to give away to one of my lovely readers.

* This is an adapted recipe from Chrissy Freer’s – Supergrains

1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
1/4 cup mixed black and white chia seeds
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tbs raw cacao powder
2 tsp natural vanilla extract
425g pitted dates, chopped
Put the quinoa flakes, walnuts, coconut, chia seeds, cinnamon, cacao and vanilla in a food processor and pulse until finally chopped.
Start adding dates in batches to the food processor, until all the dates have been added and the mixture starts to come together. Add 1-2 tsp of cold water if needed.
Line a round cake tin with baking paper and press and flatten the mixture into a pan.
