Camping, Manu & Muesli July 08 2019, 0 Comments

You may have noticed our absence lately on Social Media.... we intentionally unplugged and 'went bush' with the kids.  We spent several days camping on the Mitchell River - enjoying the amazing tropical winter weather and quality time with the kiddos.

Ironically, my kids love food besides coconut chips, and camping tends to have a lot of junk-food. *sigh*

Before we left, I met Manu Feildel at the Sunday Port Douglas Markets.  I heard he was in town for a 'Chefs in Paradise' event, and sure enough I spotted him amongst the market crowds.  I used to watch him in the 'Ready Steady Cook' days, but I think he's best known for his role MKR My Kitchen Rules.  He graciously agreed to a pic with me and one of my staff Matthew - thanks Manu!

Speaking of cooking, last month's $5 Muesli/Granola deal was a hit and the results are coming in!  Check out these reviews:

"​Omg this is a wonderful product for Keto peeps that have been missing muesli. The way the coconut is made makes it. Love love love - thank you" - Tania

"Best Muesli I’ve tasted .. just add or not want you want .. the shaved Coconut takes it to another level . A really natural, feel good , taste even better muesli . Well done"  - David B​

So I've made the Keto Muesli official - check it out here

Here's a final pic of my 8 year old daughter working with me at our seasonal Wednesday Marina Markets.  Yes, we pay our kids and she is our hardest worker.  Love!

Beach Harvest in Cuba

Happy 2018!

I hope 2018 is finding you well so far...

We spent the holidays with my family in Florida and Cuba - we had a blast!  There were coconut trees everywhere in Cuba and we thought, "hmmm, Beach Harvest in Cuba?"  Unfortunately, their government isn't known for being friendly to outside capitalist ideas.... 

Anyway, it's back to Australia and back to normal - yay!  The kids started school this week (my youngest, too, just started Prep!), and we are excited for the year ahead.

And it's nearly Australia Day!  Do you have any plans for the long weekend?  I love Australia Day because I've called Australia home for nearly 13 years, 5 of which I've been a citizen.  I'm blessed to have my heart in two places.

So, let's celebrate 2018 with a 18% off all Coconut Chips & Coconut Sprinkles!  Use code Aussie18 at the checkout.
