Hello? Are you out there?

You appear briefly, tease us with your warmth and bright blue skies and wham you disappear!
Sydney is back to cold weather and dreary skies, for now.

So what do you do when you're craving Spring sunshine but mother nature isn't giving you any?
You bring out the spring-ish food and pretend the weather is how it's supposed to be.

For me, warmer weather means hot bowls of oatmeal disappear in favour of cool cereal bowls,
lunches become more snack like and salads and fresh produce are always on the menu.

Granola is one of my favourite summer breakfasts and since eliminating gluten I've fallen in love with all things buckwheat, so this Buckwheat Granola from Nushie's Natural was something I was itching to try as soon as I opened the box!

This Granola is; 
-Gluten Free
- Vegan
- All Natural (no icky preservatives!)
- Sucrose Free
- High in Fibre

It's also packed full of flavour,  containing apples, dates, almonds, sunflower seeds, currants, coconut, cinnamon, orange rind and maple syrup. 
It has a strong toasted coconut flavour, making it feel even more summery! 
The best thing for me about this granola was the chunks and the crunch! Even after sitting in milk for a while it was still crunchy and delicious. 
If you're not a fan of chunks, they're easily broken apart into smaller pieces - but who doesn't love granola chunks?

Speaking of crunch, Nushie didn't disappoint with these chia crackers!
These crackers are dehydrated to maintain all the natural nutrients of the ingredients, while still giving you a super crunchy cracker with a hint of lemon.

- Gluten Free
- Omega 3 Rich 
- Vegan
- All Natural
- Sucrose Free

They're a healthy snack on they're own or topped with whatever you fancy! 
They're a tasty and unique cracker option and perfect for sharing with friends at a summer BBQ. 

Nushie's Flaxseed Crackers are just as crunchy as the chia ones. 
They are full of flavour, thanks to the addition of tamari soy and maple syrup and a dash of cayenne pepper.

These crackers are also;
- Gluten Free
- Omega 3 Rich 
- Vegan
- All Natural
- Sucrose Free 

and you get the full benefit of the Flaxseeds as they're rolled, allowing them to be easily digested.

Nushie's crackers are available from a number of stockists across Australia,
check out their site to find the closest to you!  

So tell me, 
Does your menu change with the change of seasons?
What's your ultimate warm weather breakfast? 

I can't go past a cold bowl of cereal topped with fresh fruit, nut butter and shredded coconut - yum!

  1. Those crackers look like truffle shavings :P I really must get onto making some granola.

    My menu changes around now, cos I realise how much weight I've put on over winter =O


  2. Granola is the best and FRESH granola is even better! Plus, when you make it yourself you can add in whatever you like (mind you, I would have NO idea how to perfect buckwheat granola - so I'll just stuck to nushie's! :P)

  3. Love the sound of those chia crackers! Cant wait for it to get warmer :( Im not coping

  4. I'm not coping with the colder weather either, it's horrible! I neeeed sunshine :P

  5. The crackers look really interesting- they sorta look like sesame brittle (I'm STILL eating them....haha) I'm not really liking the weather now- one moment it's sunny, then the next it's dark and pouring with rain!! My menu doesn't change much with the seasons, but of course, warmer weather will always means more cold/frozen desserts!

  6. Haha Von, next you'll have to try making your own sesame brittle!
    Aaah, I totally forgot about cold/frozen desserts, of course! Ice cream = summer :P

  7. My menu definitely changes with the seasons, but I am jealous you having access to so much nice produce back home in Australia. I live in the desert in Saudi now and there's not much that grows out here.

    I like the looks of those chia crackers.

  8. Wow, the Middle East must be a big change from Australia! I bet you have access to some local fruit and veg that are really interesting, though!
