Just dropping in for a quick Week in Review this week. David took the day off work to watch the Super Bowl (it started at 7.30am here) so we are taking the rest of the day to chill out together.
The main reason I wanted to do a quick post was to say how positive the past week has been. As many of you know, this time last week was very difficult. My dad was ill in hospital and I felt like I was a million miles away… which I pretty much am! However I am so happy to say that he is on the mend, treatment went well and he should be home very soon! Thank you so much to everyone for their well wishes.
Quick fire Week in Review!
Coffee Roaster Tour
We were invited by Nic from Precision Coffee Roasters to come and tour his facility on Saturday morning. 2 hours of drinking the best coffee I have tasted paired with lots of lots of coffee chat, we had a great time! If you are local to Perth and want to try some amazing farm to cup beans head on over to his website. A real local gem.
We are totally into watching documentaries on Netflix right now. They have released a chunk of PBS doco’s that are really interesting. I am hooked. We have watched everything from programmes on Hampton Court Palace, Highclere, the British Secret Service and my favourite, underground London!
High fives and brownie points
No stress and changes made
I knew on the Whole30 that I didn’t just want to make the same meals week in and out. So we took what we loved from the first week and what worked, made some small changes and voila! A different set of eats but without the stress!
Being the best daughter I could be
I wanted to be with both my parents last week but I knew there was no point on dwelling on the fact that I couldn’t. So instead I just tried to support them both in the best way I could. I think I did a good job.
Friday was a crazy day, but this meal came together in no time. Pesto marinated lamb, beets and sweet potato mash.
Blue Dinosaur Bars
Eating loads of fruit and nut bars on the Whole30 isn’t really encouraged, but on Saturday I had one as we were out and it was the ideal situation for one. I love these bars as they are predominately coconut based, not date based. This one actually tastes like banana bread… it’s so good.
As I revealed last week, David and I are doing a Whole30. Find out more info via the blog post I wrote on it or listen to us on episode 57 of the podcast – available on iTunes, Stitcher or here on the website.
The week ahead
Calming down after the week just gone! No stress, no pressure, just calm…. fingers crossed!
Did you watch the Super Bowl? Enjoy JT? (I found it really ‘meh’. Good game though!)
