Well Christmas is nearly here…Wow, can you believe that? This year has flown by!
Firstly, out of respect, we’d like to take this time to remember the victims of the recent seige in Martin Place, Tori Johnson and Katrina Dawson. Our thoughts and prayers are with their families during this challenging time. Tori and Katrina will forever live on in our hearts. We hope that the holiday season now brings peace, happiness and hope for the future.
Since launching BBB in May, we have welcomed many new members to our program. We’ve loved getting your emails and messages telling us how much you love it and how strong and fit you feel. Meeting some of you at the expos in Sydney (Pregnancy, Babies and Children’s expo; One Fine Baby) was a real highlight for us. We look forward to meeting many more of you in 2015!
We are so thankful for all the opportunities that were given to us this year – we’ve been fortunate enough to have articles published in New Idea, The Glow, Mammamia, Attipas, Content to name just a few. We’re also regular contributors to Kidmagazine and Exclusively Mum and we have some more exciting news for articles coming out early in 2015… but you’ll have to be patient for now until we can share all the details with you! We can’t wait!
So what do we have planned for 2015? We area working on improvements to the BBB program all the time and we have also teamed up with an amazing person in order to bring you some exciting new recipes! Stay tuned for further details to be released early in the new year. Trust us… You’re going to love what we’re doing!!

Thanks also to our families for your ongoing support and for believing in us and allowing us to follow our dreams. And a special thank you to our team at BBB that have helped us get where we are today… We really couldn’t have done it without you! We love you all very much!!
Finally, as promised to our Instagram followers – a little holiday gift from us to you…
Here’s the recipe for yummy chocolate bliss balls. Enjoy!
Chocolate Coconut Bliss Balls
200g pitted dates
1 cup hazelnuts or walnuts (or can substitute other nuts of choice)
2 tablespoons chia
1/3 cup sunflower seeds
3 heaped tablespoons raw cacao powder
3 heaped tablespoons coconut butter
1 teaspoon vanilla paste
Desiccated coconut for coating
Place the nuts, chia and sunflower seeds in a food processor and blitz until coarsely ground
Add remaining ingredients and blitz until dates are pureed and the mixture starts to come together
Take spoonfuls of the mixture and roll together to form a ball
Coat in extra coconut and keep in the fridge to keep firm
(If you don’t refrigerate them, they will be quite soft but still perfectly edible.)
Have a happy Christmas and a safe new year with your family and friends.
We look forward to hearing from you and being part of your lives in 2015! xx
