As a female only health club Satori recognises the importance of Mother’s Day. The countdown is on with the 11th of May coming up in just a few short days. Holidays and events throughout the year are increasingly more materialistic. Mother’s Day is unlike any other event or holiday, it’s a day that should be cherished. I think we can all relate to what a significant part our Mothers have made on defining the people that we are today. Whether it is the wisdom they have imparted, a certain type of style or their high expectations of what you can achieve, there is no doubt that Mothers have a significant impact on our lives. This day should not be defined by extravagant gifts but rather taking that little extra time to let your Mum know just how important they are. For all you new Mum’s out there as well, enjoy this day and recognise how amazing you truly are!
The simple things go a long way on Mother’s Day… Breakfast in bed, a heart filled card or just spending some quality time with your Mum. Find below a beautiful, healthy recipe for Orange, Blossom and Honey Pancakes! This recipe is from The Healthy Chef Teresa Cutter (www.thehealthychef). These delicious pancakes are certain to show just how much you love your Mum!
Pancakes + Orange Blossom Honey
Here is a delicious gluten free and healthy recipe for pancakes that is made from quinoa. They are perfect for a Sunday morning breakfast drizzled with the seductive flavours of orange and vanilla and even more indulgent when I’ve scattered over some lightly roasted hazelnuts.
Or if you can’t be with your Mum for this Mother’s day, how about you give them a delicious granola that they can enjoy on Sunday morning! A cute gift idea, healthy and yummy!

Mother’s Day Classic
If you are looking for something to do on Mother’s Day with your mum then the Mother’s Day Classic for Breast Cancer is a morning that has a cause. The event is held at the Peace Parkland, along the Linear Route through the Botanic Gardens. The track either involves 4.3km or a 7.2km walk/run.
Alternatively you can come along and support all walkers and runners and join in the entertainment and activity taking place around the course. All participants are in the running for spot prizes, given out from the stage.
Remember to fill in a tribute card to wear on the day in memory of a loved one or with words of encouragement to someone currently undergoing treatment. You can pin your tribute card to the special wall on the Pink Fence at Peace Park. You can now also add your tribute message to our online tribute wall.
