This week on the blog I thought I’d share a couple of my favorite recipes so far. Sifting through archives and reminiscing on past dishes has been quite wonderful, therapeutic in a way. A stroll down memory lane is always good. These recipes range from sweet to savory and are in no particular order.
One thing that gathering all these recipes has made me realize is how much time, effort and hard work I’ve poured into this blog. Not that it feels like work at all! Continue reading
It is so very exciting to announce and release my new eBook, Fun Food, which has been such fun creating and designing. Fun Food was born when a lovely friend of mine asked for some help with her daughters diet.
As her daughter happens to be my (Wellness with Taryn’s) ‘biggest little fan’ I was instantly inspired and excited to share my knowledge in a format that would hopefully be easy enough for her to grasp. It’s pages are colorful and vibrant which I hope would be enticing for her little eyes.
I’ve been meaning to write this post for ages! I LOVE reading about other bloggers and their favorite blogs, so I though why not share mine.
Scrolling through other sites that are full of mouth watering recipes (most of which are aligned with my way of eating), bright and vibrant photographs that instantly inspire me and the thoughtfully written posts that allow the reader to be immersed into a twined tale of where, when and how a recipe was created. I just love it! Continue reading

I’ll never forget our car journeys from our farm home in the Dargle, KZN South Africa to our schools in Howick, 45km away, and back again in the afternoons. Potting along the dusty dirt road in my mums cobalt blue little Ford Laser. I would always be ravenous by the time we got home after a long tiring day of school. My go to snack before dinner was predominantly peanut butter toast and jam. The highly processed florescent purple jam that came in a tin and was sweet as pure glucose! (*Insert yuk face here*) It was called Hugo’s if I remember correctly. Aaahhh adolescent bad food choices, how things have changed! Now this chia jam recipe is a totally different story!
Anyway, in my current nostalgic faze, I’ve been sifting through old childhood memories and finding inspiration in the foods that I used to eat. Finding ways in which I can replicate them by using wholesome nourishing and healthy ingredients. This Grape and Apple Chia Jam recipe is a product of that inspiration and I really am so happy with how it turned out. Continue reading
This recipe is a Moroccan twist on a Quinoa salad. It is super easy, really quick, and perfect for lunch the next day! I often make a big batch of dinner, and have it for lunch the next day. It saves time in the morning, plus most meals taste amazing the next day.
