Fruit cake = Delicious, nutrient- dense and an ideal option for fuelling long rides (unless you're FODMAP sensitive).
Note: This recipe is super simple, but cannot be made last minute as you do need to allow some time for the fruit to be soaked in the chocolate milk before it can be baked. It's worth the wait!
Did you know that research suggests that consuming between 0.5 and 2 grams of ginger per day helps reduce muscle pain and soreness? I whipped up some of these delicious pear & ginger muffins for Cronulla Triathlon Club members recently and there were quite a few requests for the recipe, so here it is! Enjoy :)
DID YOU KNOW? Chia seeds are a source of omega-3 fatty acids, fibre, protein & antioxidants. They promote better recovery by reducing chronic inflammation associated with high intensity and high volume training. Chia seeds also decrease exercise-induced muscle damage and promote muscle-protein synthesis.

I've been testing out some new recipes using chickpeas in the kitchen today, including these peanut butter & jam drop cookies 😋
DID YOU KNOW? Chickpeas are not only high in protein and fibre, they are also a source of potassium, magnesium, zinc, B vitamins & iron, so they really pack a punch in the nutrition stakes.
Where thoughts go, energy flows. Focus on the rainbows, not on the rain.
When our minds are so preoccupied with thoughts of the trials & tribulations of everyday life, we often stop paying attention to the beauty all around us. Mindfulness can help us to connect with the present moment and put our fears and worries aside. This gorgeous rainbow that I saw recently reminded me of a simple mindfulness activity that can be practised just about anywhere.
All you need to do is to go outside, start walking and look for something in each colour of the rainbow. Tune into your surroundings and start noticing things that you may often walk straight past. Look at the flowers, the wildlife and notice the details in your surroundings. Once you have found something in each colour, start all over again.
