In this post, I have written up everything I learnt from them about cacao farming, processing and the health benefits of eating cacao.

healthy things to do in Perth Perth: the place for outdoors-loving, nature-needing beach babes

As I write this, I’m in my hotel room in New York, enjoying the eighth week of an amazing trip of a lifetime in North America. I feel very grateful to have gotten the opportunity to be able to do so much travelling with my hubby while we are both so young. However, being away from home has made me a little homesick as I realise what a truly wonderful place Perth really is.

So, here is a list of my favourite

clothes-travel-voyage-backpackWhen travelling, my husband and I try to always book accommodation with a kitchen. We really enjoy cooking a majority of the meals ourselves rather than eating out all the time for several reasons. Firstly, it saves a lot of money.

The Healthy highlights of New York

I thought it was about time I did another travel post! I have previously written about the healthy things to do when on holidays in Whistler, Honolulu, Nice and Port Douglas. I like to focus on writing about just the ‘healthy highlights’ of each place I go to, but this isn’t because I don’t try out unhealthy foods or do anything non-health and fitness related when travelling. As my regular readers know, I am a big fan of balance and see health as holistic.

The healthy highlights of Whistler is my husband’s favourite spot in the whole world! It’s definitely up there for me, too. You’ll find Whistler nestled amongst huge mountains in the Canadian province of  British Columbia. It’s only a two hour drive from Vancouver and there are lots of cool spots to drop into on the way, making it a fun road trip. The drive is known as the ‘sea to sky highway’ and is very scenic, so stop at some of the lookouts for some beautiful views. The two places we dropped in to

healthy things to do in honolulu Waikiki beach in the morning

Aloha!

Honolulu is the largest city in Hawaii, located on Oahu, one of the eight larger islands that makes up the state. I holidayed for a lovely week here in April with my hubby. We spent the majority of our time in Waikiki – the touristy part where you can find lots of hotels, restaurants, shops and sheltered (though crowded) beaches.

Port Douglas in far north tropical Queensland was my kind of place. I spent 8 nights here with my hubby in October. Picture this: consistently warm days and nights, palm tree lined beaches and plenty of rainforest walking trails. Here are my top 6 favourite active and nourishing things to
