Spotted this Morning

What is on for everyone's Wednesday?  I can't stand that people call it hump day.  I like to think the working week is not some horrible obstacle to be conquered - even if you're in a job you don't like, or you've got a cold and are struggling through, try to embrace it.  If you're unhappy I find it's a lot easier to deal with your situation if you know you are actively trying to change it.

Anyway!  Two things I spotted this morning and wanted to share with you...

Health Hamper

Lola Berry posted this on her Instagram this morning - what a brilliant idea!  Who doesn't love a hamper?  And wouldn't it be great to open it up and discover all sorts of healthy, tasty treats instead of the usual choccy biscuits and quince paste?  Everyone loves strolling through health food stores wondering what it all tastes like!  I can't believe I've never seen this done or thought of this before. Dahhh!

The Power of Chia Seeds 
a comparison to other foods

(posted on this Facebook - though a friend of mine shared & that's how I got it)

Pretty impressive.  I'll admit Chia seeds are not a part of my daily diet, but I think I'll have to buy a bag and see how I go!

Today I am going to meet my new boss!  I am a little nervous and very excited - we spoke on the phone and he sounds great, so I'm hoping we get on as well face to face!

I'm also working on a slice recipe  - super healthy, high in protein, packed with goodness and 50 Days No Sugar friendly!  Hopefully I'll have a recipe for you by this time next week.  Still refining..
Have a beautiful Wednesday.

Stay well,
Nat x

PS.  Somebody semi-attacked me for advocating the Nat Carter's no sugar challenge yesterday on my personal Facebook.  Can I just say that I respect all of my readers and personal friends and, as a result, I know that they make decisions about what they do with their bodies and lives based on their own research and opinion, not based on what I or anybody else says.  I know you're not sheep!  x


  1. Ooh, I love the idea of a healthy hamper - although I'd be super happy if it also included a tub of quince paste... :)

  2. Love the health hamper, what an awesome birthday pressie! I have a teaspoon or so of chia seeds into my porridge, they're great! I haven't really baked with them, but they're good at absorbing heaps of liquid. Interesting that they're so high in calcium too :)

  3. Hello Natalie! I did buy some chia seeds a few months back but often forget to use them! My fiance likes to add them to salads for a crunchy touch!
