The Lilayi Green Market

Zambia has recently gotten on the plastic bag ban wagon, in most shops but as we are just starting out it is not completely implemented everywhere and not everyone is used to it yet purely out of habit. The Lilayi Green Market is changing that dynamic, it turned 1 this month so popped over to…

Ideal Meal Prep Recipes

Meal prep has become a vital part of being organised food wise as the load shedding becomes fairly unpredictable. Lunch or dinner meal ideas do not always come easy but preparing and planning meals does to me because when it’s all cooked and done you don’t fuss too much throughout the week. Here are the…

A Mauritian Beach Day

A beach holiday means plenty of swimming, sunsets, sunrises, seafood, tanning and cocktails which Mauritius gave me in abundance. We were staying at one of the beautiful villas in Mont Choisy which is a 2 minute walk to the beach. Mont Choisy has the longest beach in the north of Mauritius which forms an arc,…

The wreath is traditionally a Christmas decoration placed on a door. As Janworry is all about making savings, I wanted to do something with all the leftover rosemary and thyme from the epic Christmas dinner.
