A Week in the Wellness Life!

♥ Natural yoghurt, blueberries, banana, honey & cinnamon sugar – breakfast of champions!

I’ve decided to start a new segment where I’ll showcase in photo-form some of the best wellness snippets of my past week! I might also get some guest “Week in the Wellness Life”-ers so stay tuned, enjoy – and let me know if you like the idea! 🙂 xo

♥ 100% pomegranate juice from Grill’d. My friends and I all decided to try it! It was quite sweet, I prefer the sour cherry.

♥ I was incredibly happy to receive this beautiful pack from local favourites Sodashi, containing mini versions of their best selling concentrates, a soft face towel and a quiz to find out which one suits me best!

♥ A mini vegan chocolate feast for the bf and I. The cherry Green & Blacks is my all time favourite dark chocolate. HANDS DOWN. It is a little harder to find than the other Green & Blacks flavours, but if you see it make sure to swoop up a block. So good. The acai bar is a favourite of my boyfriends, I have to admit I haven’t tried it. Conscious Chocolate is a fairly new brand, WITH THE CUTEST PACKAGING OF ALL TIME! Plus their choccies are all hand-made. We didn’t try this one yet but I can’t wait! And the minty one up the top was from PAWS Vegan Cafe, unfortunately it was my least fave.

♥ Three drinks which are rocking my world.

1. Reboot Your Life – Very Berry Good. These are found in the fruit n veg section at woolies and are AMAZING. Seriously. They have the lowest sugar count of any freshly pressed juice I’ve come across (10g as opposed to upwards of 30g) so don’t leave you feeling spacey after 20 minutes, plus they have spinach in them, plus they are DELISH. They’re created by Joe Cross from the Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead doco I reviewed recently. You must try these. There are heaps of other flavours too!

2. Almond Breeze almond milk – to be honest I haven’t tried this yet. I’m just stoked at the number of convenient almond milks that don’t cost $10 a litre that are showing up in the shops. This one was about $4!

3. Sunraysia Cranberry Juice – a long time favourite of mine, packed full of vit c, antioxidants and just super tasty, tangy and good for you. Especially for anyone who may be prone to UTI issues. This will help sort em out.

♥ Lunch at Edens in Subiaco and a catch up with April Rose (AKA one of our star writers @ Wellness WA!). The smoothie is spinach, mango, banana, apple & ice. Amazing. And the sammy is rye, hummus, alfalfa sprouts, tomato, pineapple, tomato relish, spinach, cucumber, beetroot. I definitely felt healthy afterward!

Love to hear your thoughts on my wellness this week, if you like the new section and if you have any suggestions!

Much love.

Be well,

Annette

  1. Omigosh, the spinach smoothie at the end sounds DIVINE!!!

    I’ve tried some of the juices from Grill’d and have found them all too sour for me! Can’t drink them without ending up with a contorted face. T_T

  2. Zoë says:

    I want that sammy NOW!!! 🙂

  3. Annette @ Wellness WA says:

    Celeste, it is fab 🙂 And so bright green that they must use a lot of spinach! It’s very icy too. Hehe @ contorted face. I LOVVVE sour! I used to eat 5 warheads at a time when I was younger (probably have no taste buds left!)

    Zoe, it’s delish! You can make your own at Eden’s, so much fun and the price is super good! I think it’s about $6 for a vegan one with all you can eat on there. xx

  4. I tried Almond Milk for the first time last week in a bid to reduce my dairy intake, yet to use it in my coffee – just on my breakfast so far, I’m getting used to it though! But at $6 a pop it is a bit expensive! I love the Greens & Black chocolate too, it has very low sugar/fat which is great – where did you find the cherry one?

    p.s. Eden’s sounds amazing! I am loving Yelo in North Beach at the moment, so many healthy, home made choices.

  5. Ruslo says:

    That green smoothie from Eden’s is soo very awesome. Thoroughly recommend the Berry Burst Acai Bar to everyone! You really should try it Annette….

  6. Annette @ Wellness WA says:

    Danielle, how did you find the flavour?

    You can pick up cherry flavour from Farmer Jacks in Subiaco, I’ve also seen it in Freshies Mt Lawley!

    Ruslo – Maybe I will buy you one, give it to you as a present, then eat it myself! 🙂

  7. Hannah says:

    Really great post Annette 🙂 I’ve been looking to switch from soy milk to almond milk for a bit. I just wish I had a decent blender to make my own! It sounds so simple to make! x

  8. Kasey says:

    I had that brand almond milk the other day. It was delish!

  9. Rochelle says:

    Whereabouts are you all getting almond milk from? I haven’t be able to find any.

  10. Emma says:

    wow cherry flavoured green and blacks! YUM. coconut and goji concious choc is one of my faves 🙂 I’ve never been to Edens but after hearing about that sandwich I might have to! Glad I came across your blog xx

  11. Annette @ Wellness WA says:

    Hi Emma/Sparkly,

    Aw yay, I’m glad you found us too!!! Yeah you MUST MUST MUST try the cherry 🙂

    The sandwich is one I just made up out of all their ingredients… soooo good. I might have to pop down there tomorrow! 🙂

    Make sure you join us over on Facebook too to keep up to date xx

    Rochelle: I found that almond milk in coles:) x

    Re: Almond Milk – didn’t mind the flavor – I am not a huge fan of that marzipan taste, however found it quite non-offensive to drink. Will definitely continue to use it on my museli! Next step: stop eating so much yoghurt!
