'New Year New Me'

'New Year New Me'

...possibly one of the most annoying and overused phrases that is banded around every new year, but sometimes clichΓ©s are a necessary evil, and this one in particular perfectly describes Not Just A Pretty Plate at the start of 2017...

Firstly - Happy New Year!

2017 is upon us, and we are very excited about. We are vowing to be 'better bloggers' this year, and one of our many resolutions is to upload more frequently, so stay tuned for lots of great recipes, photos and reviews.

It helps that we are both on the same continent for the first time in a while. If you follow us on Instagram you may have seen that Zoe was working in South Africa for the last part of 2016. This ended with us both heading off on a culinary tour of Cape Town in November - one of our 2016 highlights that we will be sharing more of in a post coming soon!

You will also notice that we have had a makeover, and January seems the perfect time to launch our shiny new blog. It is something that we have been working on for a while, and would have been totally impossible without the help of our lovely and very talented friend Zoe Zietman. Make sure you check out all her brilliant work here - she really is master of all things design and illustration. 

We have moved over from Blogspot to our new website here on Square Space, so make sure our new website address is added to your bookmarks as we have a lot of exciting things coming up!

Most recently we worked with the lovely natural, British skincare brand Balance Me to create a delicious skin-boosting Energy Balls recipe. If you are on the inevitable January 'health-kick' make sure you check out the recipe here - they are super quick to make, taste great, and are packed with amazing superfoods that will give you a glow from the inside-out!

In the meantime we will leave you with a few shots of what we have been up to over the last few months...enjoy!
