Happy Thursday! How is everyone? My calves are definitely improving (thanks to rest, stretching and deep heat!) and I managed to get through my Body Step class this morning. I have another one tonight and I’m hoping they will be okay for that one too. I ended up teaching 8 new tracks this morning and was super nervous beforehand. Last minute driving practise did help though I was also a bit apprehensive with how the members would take the class, since there are a few significant changes in this release. From what I saw though everyone loved it- and they can’t believe how hard it is! I agree entirely. This release is a killer and I can’t wait till my calves and achilles are fully recovered so I can absolutely thrash it out!
The other day I mentioned I had a slice recipe coming your way. What took so long? Well I kept forgetting to take photos and then before I knew it- all the slice was gone! Lucky I got the bf to take a shot of his slice at work. Isn’t he just adorable? Check out his photography skills
Adapted from Healthy Food Guide Magazine. Makes 24 or so servings.
- 50g reduced fat butter
- 2 cups large marshmallows
- 2 cups rice bubbles
- 100g malt biscuits, crushed
- 1/3 cup of sultanas
- Spray a 30 x 20cm baking tin with oil.
- Place butter and marshmallows in a heatproof bowl and microwave for 30 seconds intervals until melted. Stir regularly and stay watching to make sure it doesn’t over cook.
- Combine dry ingredients (rice bubbles, biscuits & sultanas) in a large bowl.
- Pour melted marshmallow mixture into dry mixture and combine well.
- Pour into tin and spread until even.
- Place in the refrigerator for an hour or until set.
- Slice into 24 pieces.
The original recipe said it makes 32 pieces and I wasn’t able to get that many. If you manage to get 32 pieces the approximate nutritional information they give is:
47 calories, 0.6g of protein, 1.3g of fat, 0.4g of sat fat, 9.1g of carbs, 5.3g of sugar. 0.2g of fibre, 34mg sodium, 2mg of calcium and 0.3mg of iron.
So, if like me you only manage to get 24 pieces your information will slightly increase but not by much. Easy-Peasy!
I really loved the subtle sweetness of this slice, as well as the crunchy texture! This is definitely going to be a regular in this household. It’s not overly rich like my toblerone brownies or triple choc brownies, and could definitely be enjoyed with a cuppa or as a quick snack when you feel like something a bit sweet.

Now, I’ve stolen my daily healthy thought from one of my favourite blogs Enjoy Your Healthy Life. This quote just captured me entirely so I am borrowing it to use in my daily healthy thought as part of my Healthy Thoughts, Healthy Actions pact.
DAILY HEALTHY THOUGHT: If you are depressed, you are living in the past. If you are anxious, you are living in the future. If you are at peace, you are living in the present.
What’s your daily healthy thought? Are you guilty of not living in the present?
