Hi, my name is Talida I’m a new mum living in beautiful Townsville, a small city on the Great Barrier Reef in Australia. I worked as a dental hygienist for the past 7 years and before that I did some studies in biomedical science. At the moment I’m taking a break from work to take care of my baby and blog but am planning to go back to uni for extra studies in science and research into hormone health. Like many other bloggers, the inspiration for this blog comes from a personal struggle with illness earlier on in my life.

My blog is a place for me to share some healthy plant based recipes (with lots of desserts) and a place to share my personal health struggles and all the things I’ve learned along the way. I talk mainly about hormonal health, mental health , mum health and nutrition. Diet was crucial for me in regaining my health so I am passionate about sharing lots of health promoting recipes that are simple and delicious.

The inspiration for the name of my blog comes from my most favourite food combination; chocolate and hazelnuts. I am quite obsessed with chocolate and healthy, good-for-you desserts. Although this is not a desserts blog, you can trust to find many raw vegan desserts and other healthy sugar free treatsΒ on my blog.

I really hope you enjoy visiting my blog and I hope that in a small way my blog can help inspire you to try the delicious plant based lifestyle and shed some light on important health topics that are so important for overall health.
