Eighteen boxers will be fighting it out in the ring at Sun Arena, Times Square in Pretoria. The championship title in what promises to be one of the most exciting international sporting events in South Africa this year. The matches held feature champions exclusively, lasting nine bouts each, providing riveting entertainment for the audience.

Something for the Ladies

Seeing as it’s Women’s Month, it’s fantastic to see that Battle of the Warriors have included a bout between  Ivana Habazin from Croatia and Gifty Amanua Ankra from Ghana. These ladies will take to the ring on Sunday the 26th of August.  Keep watching as I’m hoping to get up close and personal with the ladies before match day.

My Love Affair with Cassava Flour

During the course of my journey I came across Cassava Flour. I love the paleo diet as much as I love baked goods, but normal flour doesn’t agree with me and doesnt work well with my lifestyle transformation. Here in lies the reason, I am a Cassava fan of note who is always stocked up on this liquid gold. Health Riot’s cassava flour is GMO free, Gluten free, Grain free and Nut free. Best of all you wouldn’t know the difference as it yields the fluffiest of baked goods.

The story of Health Riot is a simple one.

Valeska and her husband Christiaan turned to paleo in 2012 when their first child was born. She was so tiny and fragile and everything Valeska ate seemed to affect her tummy and she suffered with eczema. Valeska also had no energy and with the lack of sleep and new-found motherhood, energy was definitely a commodity I needed in spades. She felt so tired, sluggish, boated from grains and in serious need of a good balanced diet.

She embarked on a journey of eliminating dairy, sugar and grains. Before she knew it, she had fallen in love with the paleo lifestyle and was feeling great! Best of all, her little one no longer had cramps.

The more Valeska researched, the more she found recipes that called for cassava flour, but she had no idea what that was and it was nowhere to be found in South Africa. Then in 2015 a family trip to Mauritius had them access cassava flour there.

The couple brought as many bags home as their baggage would allow and immediately started baking. Their kids were especially happy to eat pancakes and breads again that actually tasted like the real deal! Problem solved without anyone noticing the change.

It took no more than a few weeks for the valuable flour to run out and, they were back to square one, she started searching relentlessly for shops that sold Cassava flour. After no success, one night over a cassava-less dinner they decided that if no one in South Africa had it, that they would import it!

An endless search ensued trying to find a high quality cassava flour that was not inconsistent, dull and musty or most importantly, not crunchy. The search was worth it and now Health Riot’s Cassava flour can be found in stores across South Africa.
