As a typical Capetonian I have been to the V&A Waterfront to do all my Christmas shopping for the past decade, but made little effort to get to know what the place had to offer on those weekends I couldn’t find something to do.
This past Sunday I was invited to the GINJA Restaurant, for a fine dining picnic while we watched Watershed play live, and all I could think to myself was ‘Candice why has it taken you this bloody long to come here’? On arrival we were seated at a quaint table, where a stunning picnic bundle was unraveled before our hungry eyes to reveal an assortment of mini foods and treats. From bagels to the perfect chardonnay, this foodie was happy and not going anywhere soon!
We set the table up to be Instagram appropriate (obviously), snapped away at our scrumptious picnic ahead until our hungry stomachs got the better of us. With some of my favorite songs playing in the background to the taste of salmon in my mouth, I truly couldn’t have spent this past Sunday in a better spot.
Most Friday mornings I treat myself to a tad bit of an audacious breakfast.
Key healthy elements are still very present; you know like fruit, almond milk, Wazoogle super food powder and other dried super foods. I just tend to add a little extra fruit and top my oats or smoothies with a heavy hand of nut butters or in this case Zang dark chocolate.
In my mind this is far more nutritious than the average Joe’s breakfast, but it is a tad indulgent.
However when I have completed my firth workout for the week it does come as some sort of reward, and its all about balance no?
Recently I let the cutlery shopaholic in me take control of my wallet and purchased pretty much everything you see in this photo!
With all these new toys to play with, I couldn’t help but find myself surfing the web for some new breakfast inspiration.
And what better way to welcome my new bowls and spoons, than with a spring inspired overnight oats bowl?
Its quick, time efficient and bloody yummy!
Looking for a new whey to get your protein in? Can’t stop thinking about when your next cheat meal is going to be?
Not to sound like a terrible insurance advert, but these Whey Chewies are something you might want to add to your kitchen cupboard!
