    Kayla Itsines Peanut Butter Protein Cookies

    Today’s recipe is for these Peanut Butter Protein Cookies, from the Kayla Itsines Cookbook. I modified the recipe slightly as I used Eat Naked Peanut Butter, which contains raw honey for sweetness, so I didn’t need as much sugar as the recipe calls for. But, before we jump into the recipe, I wanted to take a moment to let you know that it is my blogs 1 year birthday! So to celebrate – I am hosting 7 days of giveaways on Instagram, so make sure you are following me to enter. You can read all about One Year of Le Famished Cat here. Now for the cookies!

    1 Year of Le Famished Cat 🧁

    One year ago, I hit PUBLISH and one of my biggest dreams came true – I finally found a way to make food apart of my day to day life and subsequently – my career path. This week I am celebrating my blogs one-year birthday… and I am feeling, well, a bit proud! The Growth Curve I cannot believe how much I have learned in the last year – I know it sounds cheesy – but it is so true. When I started blogging last year March, I had no idea what I was doing – except that I knew that I wanted to have a place to store recipes. You…

    Cadbury Dairy Milk – Easter Range

    You guys must know by now that I have a severe weakness for chocolate. So I just HAD to let you know that Cadbury Dairy Milk has a new easter egg range.  There are three different easter egg variants to choose from, including these Hollow Eggs that are filled with Astros and Whispers…😍 What’s more exciting than eating chocolate only to discover more chocolate hidden inside?  And the best part, (in my opinion anyway) Cadbury Dairy Milk has now introduced marshmallow eggs called Fluffies! They come in a box of 30 or at some stores, you can find the individual marshmallow eggs. Let’s talk about these Fluffies. First off, the…

    Dairy Free Milk Alternatives & Banana Milk Recipe

    When it comes to milk alternatives, there is a multitude of Dairy Free, plant milks on offer in South Africa. Just visit any Dischem, Clicks, Checkers, and Woolworths and you will have the option to try them all. I try to follow a dairy free diet as much as possible (partly because of my IBS issues, partly because of wanting to eat fewer animal products) so choosing to drink non-dairy milk is a no-brainer for me. However, with so many choices, how do we know which type of non-dairy milk to buy? How do we know which type works best in which recipe? Today I am breaking down all the…

    The Refillery brings Zero Waste Shopping to Jozi

    Many of us routinely reduce, reuse and recycle in order to lessen the mountain of waste sent to landfill each day. We use environmentally friendly straws, buy fruit and vegetables ‘naked’ and take our own reusable bags to the store. Sadly though, this isn’t enough and we’re still facing a world where there will be more plastic in our oceans than fish by 2050. Thankfully, the new global phenomenon of zero waste stores is making it easier to make the right choice for our planet – and The Refillery has opened its doors as the first zero-waste store in Johannesburg. The Refillery is an exciting, new planet-friendly grocer offering a…

    Blue Spirulina Chocolate Bounty Bars

    Time for a chocolate bar reinvention and today it’s these Blue Spirulina Chocolate Bounty Bars. Chocolate and Coconut go together perfectly and Bounty Bars are a perfect example of this union. So there is no need to reinvent the wheel to recreate these chocolate bars – just small tweaks and additions.   Breaking down the recipe I don’t know about you, but I love making goodies from scratch. It usually tastes way better and you know exactly what goes in it. Take homemade pesto or homemade almond butter for instance. For these Blue Spirulina Chocolate Bounty Bars, I didn’t want to add any extra sugar to the coconut mixture, so it’s just…

    Cucumber and Mint Malfy G&T’s

    Happy Friday and what better way to cool off after work than with these Cucumber and Mint Malfy G&T’s? Green smoothies are everywhere, so why shouldn’t we blend up the usual green smoothie suspects to create a ‘healthier’ gin cocktail? This Cucumber and Mint G&T is light, refreshing, and icy cold. I only added a spoonful of white sugar to sweeten up this cocktail, but you can omit or if you prefer, swap out for honey or maple syrup. How I made this Cucumber and Mint Malfy G&T’s For this G&T, I blended the cucumber, mint, sugar and lime juice in my Nutribullet. I then poured this mixture through a…

    Browned Butter, Sage & Asparagus Parcels

    Today’s recipe is for these simple Browned Butter, Sage and Asparagus Parcels, which you can eat as a side dish with a main or on their own as a snack. The Rice Paper Wrappers can be bought at any Chinese Grocer – try to get the biggest ones possible because they are easier to wrap with. If you don’t like rice paper wrappers, then you can crunch on these asparagus by themselves – the choice is really up to you. 😉   There is something about sage and burnt butter that just goes perfectly together. As the butter browns, the sage crisps and fills the kitchen with such a delicious…
