Foodie Tuesday – Healthy inside and out!

This week for Foodie Tuesday, we share a tasty looking but guilt-free treat, courtesy of Soulful Fitness. When this new Lane Cove business isn’t running their increasingly popular yoga, pilates and spin classes, they are busy adding some healthy recipes to their website.

We hoped this evil looking slice would satisfy our sweet tooth and make us feel virtuous at the same time 😉
