PANCAKE DAY…

… is some time in mid-February admittedly, but I’ve decided to whip up a batch, nonetheless! My sweet tooth and daydreams of Swedish summers in the archipelago eating home-made pancakes with jam have me yearning for simpler times and simpler carbs. Nowadays however, I consider it slightly taboo to consume an ‘Everest’ of whipped cream and chocolate atop my pancakes; indeed even the starchy pancake mix itself could be improved upon! So here’s my healthy pancake alternative which mixes sweet and savoury flavours into a filling treat which is totally natural. I’ve also included the recipe to one of my favourite home made jams which is fabulously healthy and easy to make! Click MORE to get it all… Continue reading

ACTIVE ESCAPE – CAESAR AUGUSTUS !!!

Fitness On Toast Faya Blog Girl Healthy Active Training Gym Workout Escape Break Holiday Travel Luxury Hotel Caesar Augustus Italy Capri Review What To Do Stay Health extra-1GAP

You might have spied that my two previous posts were photographed at the jewel in Capri’s majestic crown, the Hotel Caesar Augustus. Following on from the Active Escape piece I wrote about Positano, I felt that this dream-of-a-destination deserved its own round-up, since it represents the perfect embodiment of a ‘healthy getaway’, and has a very distinct feel from the fantastic Il San Pietro; this is an island hotel, a tranquil haven of an escape, a retreat, a sanctuary, and altogether exceptional. Read MORE for my thoughts on how you can stay active and explore this magical place at the same time, along with a collection of lovely photos :D

CATCH OF THE (HOLI)DAY !!!

This post contains a fish recipe inspired by my recent stay at the magnificent Hotel Caesar Augustus, nestled high atop the cliffs of Capri, at their restaurant ‘La Terrazza di Lucullo‘. Conde Nast rank this as the number 5 island restaurant in the world, with  near-perfect food score of 97.6%. With this in mind, I had prohibitively high expectations… but was in very safe hands! It’s the sort of place you return home desperate to tell loved ones about, but regardless of your enthusiastic tales or jaw-dropping photos, your reports will just never do it justice. Still, a girl can try, and it wouldn’t be much of a blog post if I didn’t have a go :D Click MORE below to read about the nutritional benefits of my sea bass ‘Catch Of the Day’ fish recipe and see the pics of my gorgeous meal…
