Fuel for the Day – Chia & Coconut Overnight Oats

When I was in England this winter, I reluctantly had to trade in my favourite morning ritual for something more winter friendly, so I stopped buying bananas in an (unnecessary) abundance and bought only enough for the few days ahead. I no longer had a need to keep a stash in the freezer for my…

Thoughts for Tuesday

Before I get started with this little ramble from my brain, I’m just going to first say that if you’re expecting a pretty coloured salad or some food inspiration, this isn’t the right post. Scroll down and check out my last two posts for that. This, is a little bit of raw reality from the…

Fresh & Fruity Fennel Salad

I’m not going to lie, I’m not a huge fan of eating fennel myself. I don’t like that aniseed flavour in anything, especially not in Turkish Raki or Greek Ouzo that I was recently introduced to through my travels. Perhaps it has something to do with a whole bottle of Sambuca I drank on the…

Spicy Salmon, Broccoli & Rice Dish

Those days you want something nourishing but without the fuss can be frustrating. It’s easy to just reach for something unhealthy in a rush and I know that feeling all too well but I’m on a mission to change that. Quick and healthy don’t often go together, unless you’re grabbing an apple to snack on….

The Travel Bug

Traveling is something I’ve been lucky enough to have in abundance since I was a little girl as my family live all over the world. My mother is South African and my father English, so I grew up in England but my mum’s side of the family is large and all of her siblings dispersed…

Filled with Greens

Although I’m very health conscious and all about getting my daily fix of vitamins through food, I’ve never really got into the juicing trend. Don’t get me wrong, I love a fresh juice and will often order one along side my breakfast if I’m out or will make myself a smoothie for breakfast, as a…

Keeping busy

I’m sure nobody’s been missing me, but I’m going to go ahead and apologise anyway for going awol the past couple of weeks. As I mentioned before, we were moving the boat from Greece to Italy and had friends with us. We were enjoying our two weeks of downtime and exploring a little & then…

Black Rice & Sweet Potato Salad

I’m a big fan of salads, especially when I’m in a bit of a rush to eat something fast, but I’m also conscious of making a salad interesting and thinking outside of the box. A salad doesn’t have to be a bowl of leaves. For me, it’s the chance to throw a bunch of goodness…

La Vie at Sea

Living on the water is a fun and interesting way of traveling. Getting paid to do it is even better. We have guests on board and go at full steam to make their onboard experience the best, and then when they leave we have time to unwind, enjoy the boat a little as our home…
