There are two types of runners: Actual runners, people that just love running and can find it almost meditative. And then there are those of us that just run for fitness, because we know it’s good for us.

There’s something almost primal about running. We could say it was one of the first ever sports invented by humans, except the competition back then was either hunting you down, or you were hunting them. Either way the loser didn’t make it alive past the finish line. (more…)

If you like to enjoy a donut every now and then, but don’t enjoy that huge feeling of guilt afterwards whilst licking the sugar off your lips, then this recipe is for you. ‘Real’ donuts are typically deep fried, contain heaps of sugar and fat, and just don’t do anything good for the body.

We were set a challenge this week to turn an unhealthy treat in to a healthy one. We successfully made Tim Tams a little while back (basically “penguin biscuits” if you’re from the UK or US) so we asked our social media followers to vote for something new and challenging. We had some crazy ideas suggested, but to make a Carrot Cake healthy and actually taste good seemed like a challenge. Full disclosure, we’re not vegans ourselves and just because something is vegan it doesn’t necessarily make it healthy, but we decided to make a vegan carrot cake because we know some of our readers and followers are. Plus not being able to use eggs in any cake recipe is a bit of a challenge.
We asked for your votes, you voted, and this is us delivering. And wow have we delivered!
