A morning at the flower markets

Last Saturday morning my mother- and sister-in-law and I ventured to Rocklea to visit the famed Brisbane Flower Markets. Not just any foray, our venture was of the wedding kind – to order flowers for my sister-in-law’s up and coming wedding. You may remember my post on their fabulous engagement party. Following that, Cassandra has the wedding planning down to a tee and this was the next thing to tick off the list!

To Carb or Not to Carb…that is the question.

To Carb or Not to Carb…that is the question.

I feel like recently my email inbox and Pinterest feed have been bombarded with articles and posts regarding the pros and cons of carbohydrates as part of a healthy diet. It seems that although diet fads come in and out of fashion more often than I wear clean underpants (now, now, no nasty jokes thank you very much!), the debate on carbs vs. carb free diets has been a hot topic for quite a while now. I thought I’d do a bit of research on the subject and find out just how to tell fact from fiction.
