Run Like a Princess

Did we miss something, because princess running is becoming a thing. Over in the ol’ US of A you can run in specially themed Disney Princess races, along with some specialist Etsy retailers making sweat-friendly Disney Princess outfits. Brings a whole new definition to running like a girl!

Eat Your Neighbour’s Fruit & Veg

We love our fresh fruit and vegies but urban living means we have limited space to garden! Enter Aussies Alistair Martin and Helena Martin from Adelaide who have put together the Ripe Near Me site to help reduce food waste and connect communities by sharing information about food growing in their area. Neighbours can offer their home grown produce for sale or trade, as well as giving you the opportunity to dig up/pick your own dinner. Have a look to see what’s growing in your area here.

Chewing the Fat

Many of us have grown up thinking that fat was the one thing we should avoid at all costs, but it is worth remembering that there are plenty of good fats which are important to eat for a number of reasons. You may already know about avocados being full of the good stuff, but what about humble peanut butter? Check out a short list of great examples at Popsugar.

While it’s not quite summer yet, the past few days have made us feel optimistic and we couldn’t resist the look of this Coconut Chai Lemonade. Make up a batch for us this weekend and let us know when it’s ready!
