A Walk at Alowyn Gardens

When life gets too hectic, take a step back and enjoy the beautiful magnificent manicured parterre gardens at Alowyn Gardens, Yarra Glen.

Not far from neighbouring towns of Healesville, Tarrawarra and Dixons Creek. Multiple wineries can be found along the way also, including the prestigious Balgownie Estate. #drinkup

Located along the Melba Hwy, Alowyn offers charm, beauty and nature. From stunning solar operated fountain to beautiful garden beds for edible foods, berries and a large display of ornaments.

It was such a beautiful day We spent there together, I feel so happy to have had my incredible boyfriend there with me to take in all the stunning nature there. The most special moment in my heart was when We took a walk through the Wisteria Archway towards the fountain …it was magical!

For anyone reading this, I definitely recommend a visit to Alowyn, with kids or without it will be your most amazing day.

Homemade Muesli.

Packed with super yum and healthy nutrients and of course a lot of energy to get you through the day! Personally I think stepping away from all the preservative foods, pre-made meals will keep you healthier already.

The same goes for food, of course I can purchase muesli bars at my local supermarket or health food store but isn’t it nicer to made something yourself?

Something that has

a) no preservatives

b) is not pre-made

c) packed with healthy goodness

I have to admit that I owe credit to the owner of this delicious recipe.

Ingredients:

1 cup rolled oats

1 cup desiccated coconut

1/2 cup wheatgerm

1/2 cup sesame seeds

1/2 cup sunflower seeds

1/2 cup pepitas seeds (pumpkin seeds)

1 cup sultanas

125g butter

1/2 cup honey (I used Pureharvest Organic Honey – Raw)

1/3 brown sugar

Method

Grease and line a baking pan with baking paper, I had no baking paper so used a little bit of butter in the pan to avoid the muesli sticking to the pan later on.

Cook oats, wheatgerm, sesame seeds, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds in a saucepan over medium heat until golden in color.Transfer to a bowl allow to cool then stir in the sultanas.

In another small saucepan cook the brown sugar, honey and butter. This process is done over medium heat for 3-4 minutes or until sugar has dissolved. Bring to the boil then reduce heat to a simmer. Mixture should form a soft ball when a little amount is dropped into cold water. Add to the dry ingredients and stir until combined.

Spoon mixture into pan and use the back of a spoon to press down firmly, let cool.         Store in an airtight container for up to seven days.

Yummy goodness!!!

Have a great day,
