A Weekend Off!

I took my partner away this weekend for our first child free holiday in almost 3 years. It was a wonderful relaxing time in the mountains. With nothing to do but enjoy each other’s company.

Both Saturday and Sunday evening we visited some high end restaurants mad I made a conscious decision to put aside the LCHF mantra for two nights and just enjoy dining out with the love of my life.

Some amazing food came our way including slow roast pork with Hervey Bay scallops, grass fed rib fillet with smoked Potatoe purée croquet, apple tart with pear caramel and ginger bread ice cream and a gooey centred chocolate pudding with vanilla bean ice cream and of course a few glasses of red wine.

Back home today and excited to get back into my healthy eating lifestyle. I decided to experiment with some of the ingredients I got at the Paleo Café on Friday and make a batch of LCHF cookies… Dark Choc & Macadamia Chunk. They were passable but not amazing… yet. I will put the recipe up once I perfect them, cause that’s how I roll 🙂 Here’s a sneak peek.
