Hi There!


I'm Mikhaela.

I quit sugar four years ago when I was pregnant with my first son. It was making me fat, sick, lethargic... miserable. It was hard, but I got there. The reward has been incredible. For me and my family.

This is a personal blog. A place that I share #refinedsugarfree recipes and other family favourites.

Thanks for stopping by.


Simple Snacking

Simple Snacking

A simple bowl of fruit and full fat yoghurt and I am one happy girl. This is now one of my staple post workout snacks because it is full of protein and carbohydrates. So healthy yet I feel like it is a treat. To this bowl I have added full fat greek yoghurt, chia seeds, almonds, fresh strawberries, frozen pomegranate seeds (from our very own garden) and cinnamon. The pomegranate are so beautiful in colour and are also filled with Vitamin C.

If you're lucky enough to have a tree and have an abundance you cannot get through. Taking the time to knock the seeds out and freeze them is well worthwhile.  They are great in salads and for topping yoghurt bowls, fruit salads, cheesecakes, cakes, raw desserts, cocktails, serving on top of curries. List goes on. The colour and effect it has on the visual of a dish is amazing too.
