Lying in bed this morning, I saw that a friend had liked this recipe on facebook. Curiosity (and an early morning chocolate craving) forced me to following the link to discover Flourish Wellness. More importantly this raw chocolate slice recipe they had posted.
Most of you would be aware that I started a new business six months ago http://www.theinklingeffect.com.au which has been sapping a lot of my apparent spare time (’cause there’s so much of that floating around with two kids under 3!).
The only time I do get to cook creatively is when I am whipping up some supper to take to the evening workshops I host on Social Media, Content marketing and blogging.
My chief helper Heidi loves pancakes , and what’s not to love about them?

For four months I cut out caffeine, dairy, wheat, red meat, fruit (except grapefruit), potatoes, corn, mushrooms, anything processed… you get the idea (it was really restrictive!!!).
