Zilwa Attitude: Part 2

The last of my Mauritius instalments, Zilwa Attitude was a chilled way to end. But, if you’re a bokkie for sports – then Zilwa is for you! They have an incredible array of free water activities. From trips on their glass bottom boat to kayaking and more. See all their offerings here.

We were on a Full-Board bases which was great as we could enjoy their lovely light lunches round the pool with a cold beer from our mini bar or pool bar.

1 of the 4 pools. Relax round it with a cocktail or find out when their next water aerobics class is :) The hotel also has a spa, and oh – a little reminder about the Mini Club should you need to drop the kids there first!

One of my favourite moments, albeit sad to leave, 5am (3am S.A. time) before catching our flight home – this very still, beautiful bay had me longing to come back.

Love All

Puma expands on its heritage tennis collection with modern, fitted silhouettes and classic takes on Tennis Inspired sports wear. The collection is inspired by tennis archives and adds to the build up to the 30th anniversary of Boris Becker’s win at Wimbledon.

The shoes in particular maintain the same silhouette as before, but as technology has eclipsed their functionality as sportswear, they are now worn off the court as leisure wear. Part of what makes this incredibly cool is that the same shoes we would wear to go shopping or just chilling were once worn by a Wimbledon champ.

The collection is currently available in-store – retailers include PUMA stores, Sportscene, Cross Trainer, Sneakers Bloemfontein and more.

3 Easy & Healthy Recipes

Here are 3 recipes I’ve been dying to try and finally did over the weekend! These are all SUPER easy to do – and look impressive when entertaining! :)

IMG_6269

These breakfast muffins have a few different recipe versions (See another version here) – I just made mine as you would an omelette. Beat Free Range eggs ( I had 5 eggs – came out with 6 muffins) and then add what ever ingredients you fancy into the mixture. I had:

Chunk of smoked bacon from the Hermanus Farmers Market chopped into cubes / cheese / basil / cheri tomatoes halved / salt&pepper. Delicious with a side salad of rocket, avo, olive oil & lemon juice as breakfast,brunch or lunch.

Grease the muffin pans, pour in the mixture and cook +- 15 min or until cooked through. * I didn’t but you may want to pre-cook your bacon a bit.

These crackers are from The Real Meal Revolution Recipe Book and again, are incredibly simple to make and delicious with your favourite cheese. A nutritious way to cut out carbs. Find the recipe over at Wellness Warehouse Here.

Now this is big in the states – Peppermint Bark – usually it’s thin sheets of layered chocolate one breaks up and devours with coffee after dinner. But here’s a healthier version. I used:

70% Lindt Dark Chocolate

Macadamia Nuts

Pistachio Nuts

Cranberries

For the nuts, chop or bash them in a pestle & mortar – you can go quite fine or chunkier, depending on how you like it. Melt the chocolate in a pot over a pot of boiling water. Once the chocolate has melted, mix in the nuts and cranberries, leaving +- 1/3 behind. Spread the mixture on a baking tray lined with wax/parchment paper around 1/2 inch thick. Sprinkle the remaining ingredients on top. Refrigerate for 3 hours at least or over night. I made mine quite chunky. You can experiment with peppermint, granola, different nuts etc You can adapt this recipe easily for banting too by using 70% or higher dark chocolate and leave out the dried fruit etc . . .

ENJOY! :) xx
