How to:: Pantry Makeover

One of my number one tips for a healthy and nourishing life is to have a wisely-stocked pantry. But I also understand that not everyone gets the nerdy satisfaction of organising their pantry that I do, so I decided to film this video about the few simple steps it takes to reorganise.

We’re clever, and sassy and know that we can one-up Cadbury with our know-how; and with these babies you aren’t missing out. I’ve created sugar-free, dairy-free and guilt-free Choc-Cherry Ripesicles just for you (gosh, aren’t you lucky you have me?). Continue reading
