just one toblerone please
June 12th, 2015 by Thys Du Plooy

When there is weather like this and it is cold and miserable the best thing you can do is eat something until you feel better.

My guess would be that some nutritionists wouldn’t agree with me, but one of the best options to go with is a meter of Toblerone. Breaking off and devouring one little peak of chocolaty happiness after the other would be my answer to the winter cold.

No need to suffer. Just chocolate up, add a blanket, add wine and your troubles will melt away for today…

just one toblerone please

cutting a mango with amazing skill
June 10th, 2015 by Tanya du Randt

A mango is a very messy fruit to eat. It is sticky and all over the place, but super good tasting. This street vendor however has great skills and slices up a mango so that it is ready to dig into.

Not only is it ready to eat, it also looks great! If I were to work a knife in that way I would surely end up with a few fingers missing…

Welcome to South Africa: Where we lockup EVERYTHING
June 8th, 2015 by Thys Du Plooy

In South Africa we know that anything that is not locked, bolted down or in a safe, has a good chance of “disappearing”. Some people have taken this very seriously even going so far as to lock up their food.

Pizzas are very popular, especially in winter time, so remember to carry a lock with you always. You never know when your food will find a new home…

Welcome to South Africa: where we lock up EVERYTHING! 🙂

I know we just posted a few minutes about your eating habits. Well here is another great idea for Defiance Monday when you have decided to give up on today. Stop doing the Monday thing NOW and get yourself this healthy boost in happiness.

If you decided to go for a veggie smoothie for those extra vitamins just add the following to make it a complete meal: 2 x tots vodka, a burger on a stick, bacon, fried chicken, jalapenos and random other bits.

May 25th, 2015 by Thys Du Plooy

You should never neglect your health and during Defiance Monday we would like people to seriously look at this as well. We are not encouraging people to take up that pesky exercising thing. It is more important that we look at maintaining a healthy and sufficient level of carbohydrates, fats and calories. Here is our solution:

today is the day I start training again. Defiance Monday

Make your arteries really work today. They will appreciate you thinking of them and they will put in the extra effort lugging around all of that fat and cholesterol.

beer can patties
May 21st, 2015 by Thys Du Plooy

This is probably one of the most disgustingly beautiful things I have ever seen. There are few loves greater than the love for great food and these find gentleman are creating burger patties that should have their own monument.

This is not your average every day of the week type burger patties and I think most mere mortals would only be able to stuff one into their faces in a single sitting. Doing it would however be great fun and I would recommend it for everyone.

It will definitely be a mess. It will definitely leave a smile on your face. It will definitely make your friends jealous when you put a picture of it up on Facebook or Instagram.

rainbow cupcakes
May 21st, 2015 by Thys Du Plooy

Too many recipes you find online these days are either near impossible to pull off, cost loads to do or contain ingredients that you would only find on another planet. These rainbow cupcakes are however something out of the ordinary and is made using far more conventional ingredients.

Granted it would still take you a bit of time to make these little masterpieces, but that would be it. The ingredients are ridiculously expensive and the techniques are what most cooks would be able to do without too much trouble.

The video is just over 8 minutes long and by the end you will be drooling!

I think I will have to bake some of these for myself. Cupcakes are your friend. Rainbow cupcakes are your best friend. They’re everyone’s friend.

Meanwhile in Australia 1
May 20th, 2015 by Thys Du Plooy

One of the few things the Australians got right apart from AC/DC and their version of Masterchef, is the way they do their shopping. While we are struggling here in South Africa with plastic bags we need to pay for, this clever Aussie lady (it hurts to say that) found a 2-in-1 solution.

She took her pet kangaroo to the shops and this meant that she had a shopping basket to boot.

Meanwhile in Australia 1

Meanwhile in Australia this is probably not the strangest thing going on… we will need to revisit them a few times over the next couple of weeks to see what they are up to.

how hungry are you
May 14th, 2015 by Thys Du Plooy

I think it is time to go on a strictly carb diet. It is sure to curb my hunger and also put on some much needed fat to help me care less about the winter cold. This one should do.
