Coconut Black Rice | Breakfast | Lunch | Dessert

We are addicted to healthy eating and have a huge love for breakfast…breakfast anytime really…could, and do, eat it all day. This is one of those handy recipe’s that adapt particularly well on a weekend. We love it for breakfast but it is also a favourite in a lot of Asian restaurants for dessert. But you could also have it for a summery lunchtime meal chilled by the pool or have it in a steaming bowl on a winters day or night. Did I mention breakfast at any time of the day?!

Emotions come, I don’t know why.

Tuesday Tunes | Morning of the Earth | Terry Hanningan “I’ll be Alright”

We chose this weeks Tuesday Tunes to coincide with our recent move to Bali. We are chasing a more simplistic way of life.  Morning of the Earth is a 1971 classic surf film by Alby Falzon and David Elfick. And although our electronic obsessed society is nothing like the free & simple 70’s, we would dearly love to let go of the consumerism; that we like everyone else, is currently caught up in (noted: we still have our computers & devices, firmly in hand!) To focus instead on having a simple roof over our heads, (bungalow) which has little space for storing clothing; requiring us to limit the wardrobe; no car; no air conditioning and with only cold water. Best of all the location of this sea/tree change is none other than the area near by Uluwatu, the scene of many of the iconic images in the Morning of the Earth surf film adventure.. ☟

Tell me do you really know
your brother man
cause a heart speaks louder
than a color can
and why would you even
shake a man’s hand
if you’re not going
to help him stand

Musician Ben Harper is helping to raise money for the family of Australian pro skateboarder Lewis Marnell, whose untimely death in January at the age of 30..
