Today's recipe is courtesy of The Healthy Easy Way...a wonderful blog with droolworthy, beautiful foodie pictures and of course the recipes to go with. Tracey is currently studying Nutritional Therapy and started her blog because of all the conflicting opinions and overwhelming amount of information about being ‘healthy’ that is now out in cyber space.
As someone who has always been interested in natural health, she has done a lot of research over the years regarding health and believes she has found her calling in helping others, particularly mums who are overwhelmed by all the information. In her blog she aims to give easy tips and great recipes to live a healthier life the easier way. And of course, she has a Thermomix.
She not only takes beautiful photographs of her amazing recipes, she loves portrait photography as well. Clearly she is in love with food styling too, and I personally just love her blog images...I am thinking we may guest her again...but in the meantime, how about enjoying chocolate pudding for breakfast! Hello! Yes please. All good for you, all delicious, and all guilt free.
Go visit Tracey and go and show her some Tenina love over on her Facebook page or catch her gorgeous images over on Instagram. Of course, go visit her blog for many more great recipes. Thanks Tracey, (and anyone that tells me I can have chocolate pudding for breakfast is my new best friend!!)
