Win 3 A Little Bit Artisan Dips

A Little Bit Dip review and competition // roughmeasures.com

When the lovely folk at A Little Bit got in touch about their delicious artisan dips made with fresh herbs, I was eager to hear more. I am a little bit dip obsessed. Give me hummus, guac and baba ghanoush, give me hot salsa with crunchy corn chips, give me white bean dips with all the garlic. I’d happily have a selection of dips for dinner every evening. I like having lots of little options to choose from. The selection feels like a pic’n’mix, and who can argue with that? Read more

Vegan Hazelnut Hot Chocolate + a Healthy Supplies Giveaway!

Vegan Hazelnut Hot Chocolate // roughmeasures.com

Hey 2017! How ya doing? We’ve been waiting for you! Thanks for showing up, let’s make this year a cracker, yeah?! I hope everyone had a banger of a Christmas and a sparkly new year?! I spent some much-needed quality time with my family, hanging out, playing charades and eating ALL THE sprouts. I had to work between Christmas and New Year, and I’m not gonna lie, it bummed me out, but hey, I like my job and there are worse things to be doing. We had a very quiet evening on New Years Eve, curled up on the sofa under some blankets and watching films. I know everyone has been saying how sucky 2016 was, but amidst the political nightmares, the deaths and the woes, 2016 was really good to me. Continuing this blog has opened up some amazing opportunities for which I am so grateful. We bought our first (non-floating) home, settled into our new suburbs and played house. We even got 2 gorgeous cats that I have fallen head over heals in love with. Yeah, 2016 had some bumps, but it was good to me. I’m excited to see what 2017 will bring.

Spinach and Wheatgrass Crêpes + Win Indigo Herbs Superfood Goodies

Ever feel like your inner cogs are all out of sync? Whether its you health, plans or just general mood not lining up? I felt like that a lot last year, especially towards then end of the year when I was out of work for a while. I lost all sense of routine and lost a bit of myself along the way. I doubted myself, my body and my brain. It wasn’t obvious something was wrong, until now. This year, something has clicked already. Like all my cogs are in sync and I can just chill. My body feels good, my head feels good, and my heart is bursting. A happiness wave has washed over me, and I hope it’s gonna stay high tide for a while.

Crepes

I love wheatgrass, adding it into smoothies, mixing it into oats, or using in crêpes! It’s a powerful taste, so go steady if you haven’t used it before, you can start by added 1/4 teaspoon, and build it up slowly up to 1 teaspoon. It’s an acquired taste at first, but now I can’t get enough of it.

I love this one.

Fancy bagging yourself a tasty selection of wheatgrass powder, protein powders and more? I’ve got something exciting for one lucky reader! I’ve teamed up with Indigo Herbs and we’re giving away some goodies (see the photo below!) I have been a long time fan of the lovely Indigo Herb gang, and they’ve recently re-vamped all their packaging, which I think looks all kinds of awesome!

Spinach and Wheatgrass Crêpes (gf) (v)

INGREDIENTS:

Large handful spinach
1¼ cups (175g) buckwheat flour
¼ to ½ teaspoon wheatgrass powder
1 tablespoon ground flax
2 cups (500ml) nut milk
1 tablespoon melted coconut oil

 

METHOD

Put all ingredients into a blender and blitz until smooth.

Leave the mixture to rest for 30 mins, this will help it hold together when you come to cook them.

Heat some coconut oil in a frying pan, when hot, ladel a spoonful of the mix into the pan. Cook for 1 minutes, and flip and then cook the other side for 45 seconds. Repeat this with all the mix.

You can keep them warm on a plate in a warm oven until you have cooked all the mixture.
