Mini "STEP IT UP" leg challenge ends

Here we go. Another week has just flown.

Where does the time go? 

Oh yes, that's right. We have been stepping it up with our 100 steps per day this week, right? HA! I really don't know how we do it. How do we fit it all in? Eat healthy, prepare the healthy food, exercise, run a household, family and work commitments, have fun, good times and laugh, personal and hobby interests, sleep and do it all again the next day. We just do it.

Anzac Day

A day that we pause to remember those who sacrificed their lives during the war that have given us the freedom we enjoy today.

There are many traditions associated with ANZAC Day. The dawn service, which is a service of remembrance undertaken in the freezing pre-dawn darkness. Games of two up- a gambling game played by the service men during war. The Essendon vs Collingwood football game - we lost!! And of course Anzac biscuits.


Adrian was going to take the kids to the dawn service, however the plan is definitely next year. We had a beautiful service at Noah and Oscar's school on Wednesday. The kids were so reverent and I was really moved. We truly are blessed to live in such a peaceful country.

What's your Anzac Day tradition? 

Anzac Day crepes

We had a great day yesterday (except for my footy team losing) and instead of making traditional healthy Anzac biscuits HERE I opted for my traditional crepes! Introducing my ANZAC DAY CREPES......

Anzac Day crepes

Follow my crepe recipe here but with this method, I mixed oat flour (blended Uncle Toby's oats until it was flour form). For the toppings, we just added coconut butter, honey, then some lemon and no added sugar strawberry jam. The healthy toppings are endless. Mix and match as you please. My fave are crushed walnuts!

Banana Choc Smoothie

Blend and enjoy!

Our 80/20 fully raw lifestyle is going great! We make a lot of smoothies, I drink plenty of juices and then I'll make dishes like these primarily at dinner time.

Raw salad with meatballs

Fully raw salad with meatballs 

You can find my typical meatball recipe HERE and we just mixed various vegetables for our salad;

150g spinach
1 red & yellow capsicum
1/2 red onion
6 baby corns
2 tomatoes
punnett of tomatoes
1 cucumber

Our dressing was lemon with a drizzle of olive oil and it was simple and really quick. 

When I say quick, I kinda lie. The hardest part of this fully raw (80/20 really) is ALL THE PREPPING of the fruit and vegetables, I do throughout the day. My kitchen is constantly messy and I am forever washing, prepping, cutting fruit and vegetables!!! Yikes! Healthy living is really hard work. Don't get me wrong, once all that is done dinner is typically put together in under 15 minutes!

How are you managing this new fully raw lifestyle? What are some challenges you are faced with? 

Kristina from Fully Raw has posted this amazing Youtube video to help you with the top 10 challenges people face when they go fully raw.

Let me know what you think.

Until next time, much love and friendship xx Dani
