Fresh from the oven: Nanaimo Bars

Ridiculously rich, these bars are a Canadian tradition. Two layers of chocolate, separated by a layer of buttercream. Hidden somewhere deep inside each mouthful are cocoa, dark chocolate, ground pecan nuts and coconut.


Now wearing my sleeping/moving/eating companion, the Jawbone UP

It’s activated, personalised, charged and ready to track my sleeping/moving/eating habits from now on, all in the name of knowing how many calories I’m taking in every day and how many I’m using up. The Jawbone UP is now a part of me. Bionics on!

Tomorrow morning I should wake up to a gentle vibration on my wrist, timed within 30 minutes of 7am, optimised around the ideal moment in my natural sleep cycle. Fun!
